If you’re spending more time than usual hunched over a computer or slouching on the sofa, we’ve got some tips to help you. Sira Tumteerapong, a senior physiotherapist at Kamalaya Koh Samui, shares some simple exercises that you can do at home to help maintain healthy posture and alignment. A healthy posture helps prevent excess strain on your joints, muscles and spine. This in turn can alleviate pain and reduce the likelihood of injury. Thank you to Khun Sira and Kamalaya Koh Samui. And special thanks to Healing Holidays for their help with this video. When the travel situation improves, we hope that some of you may be tempted to try a health and wellness holiday in Thailand.
We want you to enjoy our fitness videos, but we also want you to do so safely. Please read the important notes below before attempting any of these exercises.
Not all exercises are suitable for all people. If you have an injury or any underlying health issue, you should consult your doctor before exercising and always stop if you feel any pain. Do not exercise if you are feeling unwell, you have eaten a heavy meal in the last two hours, you have been drinking alcohol, you are on painkillers (they may mask any warning pains) or you are undergoing medical treatment (you should consult your doctor first). We cannot recommend that you use these exercises if pregnant as these videos have not been made with pregnancy in mind. And please remember, you are always exercising at your own risk.
We hope you enjoy trying out our Stay At Home Thai Style activities. If you have any photos or videos of you or your family trying out these exercises, we’d love to see them. Please share with us on Facebook or Instagram and let’s spread some Thai-style sanuk (fun)!
