Following on from the success of our office yoga infographic, and the unfortunate news that office workers need to exercise for an hour a day to avoid risk of an early death; we’ve teamed up with a Manchester-based yoga teacher and two office workers to put together a manageable and effective yoga-based workout.
The report, published by UK medical journal Lancet, showed that sedentary desk work is now as big a risk to public health as smoking. The numbers speak for themselves, with smoking contributing to more than 5 million deaths a year, and ‘inactivity’ now hitting similar highs.
Many of us do spend a lot of our day chained to a desk, which is why top quality, ergonomic office chairs and work desks are of utmost importance – now more than ever. Over half of men and women currently fail to meet the UK health guidance of 30 minutes of physical activity a day, and we want to change this!
Our latest campaign video features Manchester Yoga School’s Samantha Shaw, who puts our office workers through their paces in this specially designed, #OfficeYoga routine, varying from beginners to advanced, meaning everyone can get involved, no matter what your level of expertise.
Watch the video in full below, and head over to Twitter to join the conversation using #OfficeYoga and tag us @Furniture_Work, we would love to hear from you!
