Mindful Movement with Brea Johnson | Unveiling the Secrets of Yoga and Body Smart Practices Stuart and Katie had the opportunity to sit down with Brea Johnson, who has been a yoga teacher and movement educator for well over a decade. With a love for learning and studying the human body she continues her on-going education in yoga, anatomy and biomechanics and is also a certified Restorative Exercise Specialist. We discuss the importance of mobility and keeping your body moving. Brea mentions how in our culture there’s this belief that we have to get that one hour or so of movement and exercise in our day and we’ll be good, but she says that movement should be spread out throughout the day instead of just concentrated all in one session because little movement more often has more benefits.

“If you have a standing desk I think it’s great to have the option. I think we need both. Don’t expect that we should be standing for 8 hours a day just like you shouldn’t expect to be sitting for 8 hours a day. For me, I have an office at my house, I have a desktop, I have a laptop, which I often bring onto the floor, I bring it upstairs, I bring it outside. On the days that I’m on my computer all day long, I’m in different positions.” 25:firstname.lastname@example.org
