Working From The Floor (Course)
Use floor postures to move more during your workday
Floor postures are the new frontier of health and performance at work. In this course we teach you how to harness floor postures to mobilise your hips and feet, strengthen your legs and back and increase your energy and focus at work.

Physiotherapist, Edmund Hillary Fellow and ergonomics pioneer. Bart's knowledge of ergonomics, human health and workspace design lead him to create what UC Berkeley professors call the world's healthiest desks. His work is inspiring a new frontier of research in ergonomics and ways of working to improve people's health, productivity and reduce back pain (currently the #1 cause of lost workplace productivity).

You need to get this course purely for the one tip alone on halving chances of getting back pain. The floor posture explanations are great, even though you may sit in them naturally having the detail gives you confidence to continue doing them even if you're inflexible. Also great that Bart is still working on his floor posture journey, again makes you feel you can do it too.
Bart is a natural teacher. I never knew how many floor postures were possible! I feel that I can now get the most of the Limber mini desk and stool I bought a year ago. I now have the confidence to keep the desk on the floor, whereas it has mainly been serving me as a standing desk.
