Ergo your posture

Join us Wednesdays at 10 am for 15-minute live Zoom sessions to help Ergo Your Posture. 

These live weekly sessions will go through a set of light exercises that you can do at your desk no equipment is required. These exercises were developed in partnership with Allan McGavin Physio to specifically target some of the common postural concerns that they see in their clinic, particularly related to office work but suitable for anyone.  These exercises will be led by the UBC Athletics & Rec Move-U Crew. 

Register for Ergo your posture.

Once you register, you will receive an email with the Zoom info and calendar invite. 

  • Download our poster and take part in the exercises at your convenience.
  • Watch a recorded session (15 minutes) anytime. 
  • Check out our Fitting in Movement Guide to find other resources including links to UBC Rec to help you to incorporate positional change in your day.

As we show you the exercises, participate as best you can, but keep the exercises within a comfortable range. Follow-up with your Healthcare Provider if you're not sure what is right for you.
