About the Class:
Have you ever wondered why certain parts of your body ache with making? Or what to even do about it? Come join Andrea Lui, PT, DPT, OCS for a class on maker anatomy. We will cover a basic overview of posture and ergonomics, specifically related to making posture (knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning). Then a novice-friendly anatomy lesson on what muscles control which motions, and how to exercise and strengthen them to improve your posture and strength. You will leave this class with a deeper understanding of your body, and improved awareness of how to decrease any aches or pains. This class is also great if you are seeking to avoid any repetitive stress injuries. Andrea will demonstrate an exercise program to help strengthen and stretch your entire body, and a YouTube link to all exercises demonstrated will be available for class participants after.
