The Advocate Capital, Inc. Wellness Committee hosted “Halloween Desk Yoga” as part of our ongoing Lunch & Learn series. Fitness Professional Susan McDonald lead employees through a series of easy yoga poses she developed for people to practice at their desks. Over the last year, Susan has taught Advocate employees the benefits of stretching to reverse the effects of sitting, driving, and typing.
The latest session did not disappoint as Halloween themed music played in the background while employees posed in “scary black cat” and “half moon” poses. Each of Susan’s sessions builds off the previous session. The Halloween session focused on practicing a modified Sun Salutation using either the desk or a chair as a prop.
Susan reminded employees to stay centered and relaxed as they work. In keeping with the Halloween theme, she provided employees with “Advice from a Bat”:
- Trust in Your Senses
- Spend Time Just Hanging Around with Friends
- Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark
- Get a Grip
- Enjoy the Nightlife
- Sometimes You’ve Just Gotta Wing It
- Guano Happens!
Advocate Capital, Inc. is thankful to have Susan as part of our Wellness Committee Lunch & Learn Series. Her sessions are well attended and very popular with our employees.
