Mira’s seated session 11 June 2020
Led by Mira, this is a 50-minute all seated, full-body, low to medium intensity workout with a focus on postural exercises to help correct rounded shoulders, rounded thoracic spine, posterior tilt and forward head while benefiting your general fitness. It is perfect if you are dealing with injury, limited mobility or balance issues.
Mira takes you through a special warm-up using a towel to encourage correct neck, shoulder, back and pelvis positioning to improve your posture.
The main workout contains a circuit of 8 exercises targeting postural deviations like rounded shoulders, rounded thoracic spine and posterior pelvic tilt. Along with all these benefits, the strength circuit will help to build your strength in those areas responsible for stabilising your good posture.
The session ends with targeted stretches for tight muscles in your neck, chest, shoulders, core and legs that are responsible for pulling and rounding your entire posture.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR SESSION
Fit For Good online sessions are a convenient, enjoyable way of improving your fitness and helping to increase your strength, stability and balance.
To make the most of each session:
- Position your computer, laptop, iPad or phone on a stable surface near where you will be working. If you can get YouTube on your television, that's another option
- Check the floor where you are exercising is not slippery and that there is nothing you could trip over
- Wear loose clothing and comfortable trainers or shoes
- Keep a glass or bottle of water to hand to ensure you stay hydrated
- Have a chair or other stable object to hold onto if necessary
- Place your weights - whether they are actual dumbbells, cans of beans, bottles of water or whatever works for you - where you can easily reach them, but won't trip over them
- Exercise within your comfort zone, pausing the video whenever you need to rest or hydrate
- Play background music if it helps you relax
