Health How to avoid body pain from work (your desk, chair, slumping) How to avoid body pain from work (your desk, chair, slumping)
Recently, I was able to catch up with an expert on physical therapy and dance, Colorado-based Mieke Scripps. She studied dance and kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin while performing in the modern dance troop Li Chiao-Ping Dance. After her dance career, she received her doctorate in physical therapy from Northwestern University and then worked as a physical therapist for the New York City Ballet, the School of American Ballet, the Miami City Ballet, the Juilliard School and on many Broadway shows. Mieke found that yoga was an effective and safe complementary movement therapy to improve stability and strength while also increasing flexibility.

Anything that's worth taking care of needs periodic maintenance work - sometimes even a whole makeover. Your nutritional status is no different. Remember the old adage, "You are what you eat?" Well, it holds true in more ways than one. What you eat affects not only factors such as your weight, disease prevention and disease reversal, but also your energy level and sense of well-being. Even if you know what you should be eating, that knowledge doesn't always translate into action.
