Workload,

problems

for board

• By Sarla Donovan

THE BANKS Peninsula

Community Board could lose

members if pay rates aren’t

increased.

A population-based funding

model means board members are

paid less than half those on citybased

boards.

Banks Peninsula board members

are paid $9527 compared

with between $22,503 and $23,742

for those in the city.

First time board member John

McLister said he won’t stand

again if the status quo remains in

place.

And others say that given the

heavy workload and low remuneration,

they would have to seriously

consider whether they put

themselves forward in the 2019

local body elections.

Currently, city council and

elected board members’ pay rates

are set by the Remuneration Authority

in Wellington.

A recent proposal to shift responsibility

for deciding pay rates

onto city councils would allow

them to better reflect community

needs and workloads.

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson said she supported the

idea.

THERE’S trouble at t’mill.

Well on the Banks Peninsula Community

Board anyway.

On page 6 and 7 today, we reveal a

growing annoyance over the amount of

money board members are paid compared

with their counterparts in Christchurch. We also compare

the amount of time board members put in compared to their

Christchurch counterparts. And the Banks Peninsula members

definitely have a point.

Banks Peninsula members (excluding the chair, deputy chair

and councillor Andrew Turner) are paid $9527. Members of the

tion six Christchurch datE] community boards receive between $22,503-

$23,742. Pay rates are based on population but that could change

this year as the Remuneration Authority assess the formula.

The sooner it is changed the better. – Barry Clarke

Marlon Williams

doesn’t forget about home

• By Julia Evans

MARLON Williams has opened

for Bruce Springsteen, won a

Silver Scroll, and played Later

. . . with Jools Holland.

And that is only the tip of the

iceberg when it comes to the

Lyttelton songwriter’s recent

achievements.

But in the midst of

international success, the

27-year-old hasn’t forgotten

where he calls home.

In the music video for

Williams’ latest single, What’s

Chasing You, eagle-eyed people

will spot the New Brighton Pier

featured in the background.

The video, released on Friday,

was shot on South Brighton

beach by Christchurch filmmaker

Martin Sagadin. It

features a swaggering Williams

who seemingly bullies other

beach-goers with dance moves.

Said Williams of his latest

song title: “It’s an earnest

question. It’s the only thing I’ve

ever really wanted to know of

another human being. Like all

good questions, it’s childishly

simple. We all want to live

empathize and let’s be honest,

compare hands. I’m not

convinced truly understanding

another’s woes would really

bring anyone happiness, but I

am a nosey boy. What’s chasing

you?”

The single is the latest release

from the now Melbournebased

songwriter’s upcoming

sophmore album Make Way for

Love, which comes out February

16. The album was written in the

wake of Williams’ break-up with

another acclaimed Lyttelton

songwriting talent Aldous

Harding.

“Then I wrote about 15 songs

in a month,” he recalled.

Harding’s vocals feature

alongside Williams on the

record’s debut single Nobody

Gets What They Want Anymore.

A song which tackles the way

the pair attempted to navigate

their separate demanding

careers until they couldn’t.

Williams spent three weeks

tucked away in the port town,

a few houses down from his

family home, with Lyttelton

producer Ben Edwards and

backing band The Yarra Benders

working on the record’s preproduction.

They then flew 12,000km to

record the album in the United

States.

Williams is following the

release of Make Way for Love

with a 50 date global tour,

including a night at The

Foundry on May 23. Tickets

Buskers in

our backyard

Local

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

A LINEUP of international buskers

will be performing in Lyttelton’s

backyard on Saturday as part of the

25th World Buskers Festival.

In Albion Square from 10.30am,

there will be Sharon Mahoney from

Canada; at 11.20am, Witty Look

from Japan; 12.10pm, Kilted Colin

from the United States and at 1pm

Snap Boogie performs, also from the

US.

Festival organiser Melissa

Haberfield said it was the first time

performing in New Zealand for all

except Sharon Mahoney.

There will be festival staff onsite

giving out pocket guides for

the whole festival as well as other

giveaways.

Meanwhile, a Lyttelton busker will

once again feature in the central city

festival line-up.

Lyttelton’s famous ‘Rubber Band

Boy’ Shay Horay (left) holds the

Guinness world record for 78 bands.

The 38-year-old is back at the

festival for the 21st time and says

after 12 years of stretching rubber

bands over his face, he still loves the

routine.

Does he put them anywhere else

on his body? “I would never put a

band anywhere that potentially cause

injury.”

He claims to know more about

rubber bands than anyone else,

except the guy that makes them.

Apparently close encounters with

rubber bands help keep you looking

youthful.

“I went to see a plastic surgeon

and asked if one day I might go

from looking like a young man to an

old man overnight. Would my face

suddenly sag? He informed me that

these weekly events are very good

for the face. It’s the same as getting

a facial massage, it keeps the skin

flexible and should theoretically

prevent wrinkles.”

He loves what he does. “Being

self-employed for the last 20 years;

travelling the world....why would

I want to change that?” You can

catch Shay Horay in the central

city performing Rubberband Boy’s

Greatest Hits, ‘The One Man Band’

- a musical instrument powered

by you guessed it a rubberband - a

pogostick escape that will blow your

mind and of course the routine that

has made him famous worldwide.

IN TOWN: Kilted Colin and

Snap Boogie will perform in

Lyttelton on Saturday.

Dispute looming over pay for

Fire rages, homes at risk

The Remuneration

Authority will decide

if Banks Peninsula

Community Board

members will be

paid the same as

their Christchurch

counterparts. If they

don’t get equal

pay there could be

departures. Sarla

Donovan reports

FIRST-TIME BANKS Peninsula

Community Board member

John McLister is a busy man.

A father of two young children,

he fits his board responsibilities

around a full-time job

and also chairs the Lyttelton Seafarers

Centre Charitable Trust.

Before standing for the board

in the 2016 local body elections,

he had coached all the junior

rugby teams in Diamond Harbour.

So he’s not without community

spirit.

But just over a year into his

role with the board, Mr McLister

is calling out a “stupid system”

of remuneration which assumes

Banks Peninsula Community

Board work is less than that

required in town.

It is a wrong assumption,

he said, but one he claims the

Remuneration Authority refuses

to alter.

The city council has raised

concerns over the way

community board members’

pay was determined

by population, rather than

workload, but Mr McLister

said the authority had

told him it wouldn’t be

changing the populationbased

formula, even

though it is considering

other changes.

Pay rates for the mayor, city

councillors and community

board members are currently set

Jed

O’Donoghue

TAKING A STAND: John McLister won’t stand again for the Banks Peninsula Community Board

unless the pay rate is increased.

by the Remuneration Authority

using a population-based model,

so boards in areas with bigger

populations get better remuneration.

It means Banks Peninsula’s

ordinary board members

– excluding the chair,

deputy chair and city

councillors – receive

$9527 a year. That is less

than half the $22,503-

$23,742 paid to members

of the six city boards.

Banks Peninsula

Community Board chairwoman

Christine Wilson

is paid $19,056, while the

other board chairs earn between

$45,006-$47,484.

“That’s all fine if the workload

of our board is half those of

the boards in town,” said Mr

McLister. “But it isn’t. Our meetings

are as long as theirs, we

travel more, and have more local

community association meetings

to attend. On any measure, our

board works as hard as

any board in the city.”

His argument has

stemmed from figures

showing big variations

in the length of community

board meetings,

with Banks Peninsula

having some of the longest

and Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

some

of the shortest. Last year, one of

the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

meetings, which are held

Felix Dawson

fortnightly, lasted just 4min.

Now the Remuneration

Authority is proposing to shift

responsibility for deciding

councillors and elected board

members’ pay onto city councils

to better reflect community

needs and workloads.

But a submission on the

plan, put together by city

council staff after feedback

from community board

members and city councillors,

said it is not in favour

of the plan.

“Councils deciding on

councillor and community

board remuneration would

be problematic and have the

possibility to cause unnecessary

tension,” the submission said.

A random five-month

comparison of last

year’s Banks Peninsula

Community Board

remuneration attracts talented

He said a mechanism was

needed to either improve remuneration

or reduce the board’s

workload.

“The mayor has said she

wants to delegate more authority

ours that is already working far

beyond the remuneration that

we get; why would you delegate

to us? We have been delegated

for the Naval

for instance,

which is

a huge thing.”

Ms Wilson

said she didn’t

supported the Remuneration

Authority’s proposed changes.

She said it was too soon to say

whether she would stand again,

would not affect her decision,

“as this is something I was

aware of going in to this term”.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board deputy chairwoman Pam

Richardson said as the former

chairwoman of the Akaroa-

Wairewa Community Board,

she had gone “from a high rate

to a low rate” and she would

“seriously have to consider”

whether to stand again next

time.

Board member Janis Haley

said remuneration wouldn’t

have any bearing on her

decision to stand again, but it

might put others off, especially

younger candidates. “I don’t

think it’s democratic.”

Board member Jed

O’Donoghue said remuneration

wouldn’t be his only consideration,

but he was finding the

time commitment challenging.

which took an average of

eight hours.

“Unless people get paid a

decent day’s wage so they can

take leave without pay, it’s more

or less pushing democracy to either

the wealthy or the retired,”

said Mr O’Donoghue.

Board member Tori Peden

said she was undecided if she

would put up her hand for a

second term. She said although

she enjoyed the work, nobody

on the board realised how heavy

the workload would be.

“The board have told the authority

and the city council that,

should remuneration remain

what it is, we don’t think anyone

would stand (in 2019).”

Board member Felix Dawson

is self-employed and said it was

a “financial stretch” to lose a

day a fortnight. He said the

lower pay for Banks Peninsula

board members was unfair. “I

can’t see how any reasonable

person would think it’s

anything but.”

•Former Lyttelton-Mt Herbert board chairwoman Paula

•Ms Smith said the Lyttelton-Mt Herbert board had

Fire rages, homes at risk

Taylors

Mistake

blaze

concerns

firefighters

THE SUMNER Volunteer Fire

Brigade was called to a large bonfire

in the Taylors Mistake car park in

the early hours of Sunday morning.

The fire – which was close to vegetation

– was spotted by a resident.

Chief fire officer Daryl Sayer said

it was concerning as Christchurch

is still in a restricted fire season and

open air fires must not be lit without

a permit.

It comes as recent rain has eased

the fire risk across Banks Peninsula,

but authorities say it will only take a

few hot nor’westerly days to push it

up again.

“There is still a lot of summer

to go and conditions can change

quickly,’’ said Darrin Woods,

principal rural fire officer for the

Christchurch/Selwyn Rural Fire

District.

“If we get a return to the kind of

weather we had before Christmas

when temperatures were routinely

in the high 20s and early 30s, the

countryside will very quickly dry

out, escalating the fire risk.

“It is important people report any

fires or smoke to 111 immediately.

We’re also asking that on hot days,

particularly when it’s windy, people

take extreme care when doing any

activities that may produce sparks

such as grinding, welding or even

mowing laws on stony ground,’’ said

Mr Woods.

A restricted fire season has been

in place across the region since the

start of December. This means people

must apply for a permit if they

want to light a fire in open air.

Anyone who lights a fire without

a permit can expect a visit from

Fire and Emergency New Zealand.

They will extinguish any fire that

does not meet the conditions of the

restricted fire season.

Upper South Island travel guide

PLAN YOUR JOURNEY – PICTON TO CHRISTCHURCH

State Highway 1 (SH1) north of Kaikōura opened to daytime traffic

in December, restoring the coastal highway link from Picton to Christchurch.

The re-opening of SH1 gives people two viable options for travel around the

upper South Island, with the alternate route (via state highways 63, 6, 65 and 7

through Lewis Pass) remaining a reliable 24/7 option.

IMPORTANT BEFORE YOU TRAVEL

Check routes are open and

get estimated travel times.

For real-time travel information

visit www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c

or freephone 0800 4 HIGHWAYS

(0800 44 44 49).

Make sure you allow enough time for your journey,

whichever route you chose. Unexpected events, such as a crash,

high volumes of traffic, ongoing wet weather or seismic activity,

can cause delays. Ongoing roadworks and reduced speed limits

in places mean that it won’t be possible for you to make up time.

Be prepared with food, water and a fully charged cell phone.

Do not rely on your GPS or Google Maps -

things can change at short notice.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON SH1

Parts of the road will still be under construction, so there will be some

unsealed sections, lane closures with Stop/Go controls and speed restrictions.

There will be night closures (8.30pm – 7am) north of Kaikōura between

Clarence and Mangamaunu, and between Goose Bay and Peketa in the south.

Closure points will be monitored 24/7.

Consider road closure hours before starting your trip and leave enough

time to be clear of these sections so you can continue your journey.

The opening hours are subject to adverse weather and seismic activity. If there

is a lot of rain or another significant event, we may have to close the road for

short periods of time.

It’s important to remember the safety of those using the highway, and

working on it, will always be our top priority.

WORK HAS RAMPED UP IN JANUARY

CHRISTCHURCH

Following the road opening on 15 December, most of the work sites closed down to help

with traffic flow over the busy Christmas period.

The work programme is now back in full delivery which will have a significant effect

on the coastal corridor.

NZ Transport Agency Journey Manager Tresca Forrester says ‘It’s a balancing act to

schedule the reinstatement work to have a minimal effect on travel time while also

ensuring the work gets done. Drivers should now expect it to take at least 5 ½ to 6 hours

to drive between Picton and Christchurch on SH1 but should allow plenty of extra time

in case of delays. Check www.nzta.govt.nz/p2c for the latest information.’

before you travel and at key route

decision points.

or freephone

0800 4 HIGHWAYS

(0800 44 44 49)

BE ROAD COURTEOUS

• No stopping on SH1 within the closure areas

outside of designated stop bays.

• Be patient and cautious. Road conditions

will be unfamiliar to many drivers,

so a little bit of patience will go a long way.

• Follow all traffic signs and any instruction

given by road crew.

• Obey speed limits to keep all road users safe.

• Stay focused around rail lines. Expect trains

at any time.

• Keep fresh by taking breaks and supporting

communities on the route.

F45 8 WEEK CHALLENGE

29 January – 25 March

Ferrymead,

Christchurch

and Wigram

Ferrymead fitness centre

offers innovative programme

Located in the recently opened

commercial premises on the corner of Ferry

Road and Waterman Place Ferrymead,

the F45 Training Ferrymead gym offers

an innovative fitness programme that is

creating waves around the world.

Developed in Sydney by Rob Deutsch, a

former equities trader, F45, or Functional

45 minutes, is a team-based HIIT (highintensity

interval training) workout protocol

that focuses on motivation, innovation and

results.

Franchise owner Marcin Miroslaw, who

also has F45 franchises in the central city

(the first in the South Island) and Wigram

(opening on January 27), says one of the

key advantages of the F45 concept is that

participants don’t need to think about what

they have to do when they come to the gym

for a workout.

“The programme is all laid out for

members and there are two personal

trainers at each class, who correct people’s

technique, motivate and encourage them,

plus there’s the music designed by one of

the world’s top DJs to keep them pumped,”

Marcin says.

Over the 45-minute programme,

participants proceed round the circuit doing

short bursts of exercise, with shorter breaks

in between. Circuit styles are different every

day and there are more than 30 different

workouts, combining elements of HIIT,

Circuit Training, and Functional Training.

This combination of interval, cardiovascular

and strength training has been proven to

be the most effective workout method for

burning fat and building lean muscle.

“It’s enjoyable, and it brings results,”

Marcin says.

“Workouts change daily and are never

repeated, and all the workouts are tested by

the F45 Athletic department to optimise the

results and experience of the participants.”

F45 offers several membership options, but

most people opt for the month-on-month

membership, with 28 days’ cancellation

notice, he says.

“Members have unlimited access to all

classes and there is no joining or cancellation

fee.”

A big part of the F45 programme is the

eight-week challenge. Run four times a year,

it is a fantastic way to help people lose weight

and reach their fitness goals, Marcin says.

“The F45 eight-week challenge also

includes nutritional support, shopping

lists, recipes and daily meal plans and goal

tracking, which helps people achieve their

weight loss goals in a much healthier way

than going on diets. The next eight-week

challenge starts on January 29.

“F45 has been established in more than

30 countries around the world, and since

coming to New Zealand, it has really taken

off here. It’s different from other gyms

as it is a big part of the community, with

involvement in social events and members

feeling that they are part of a team.

“We offer a two-weeks free trial, which

lets everyone experience F45 and most of

our classes. The two-week pass is available

through our website.”

F45 Training Ferrymead is located at

Unit 4, 1 Waterman Place. New members

welcome. Check out their website

Road ‘madness’ fuels call-outs

There was bit of madness on the road, but fire

call-outs were surprisingly quiet, given the dry

conditions. Sarla Donovan does a round up of how

fire stations in the bays area fared over the holiday

period

THE AKAROA Fire Brigade

was quiet between Christmas

and New Year but since then it

had “gone crazy”, said chief fire

officer Mark Thomson, with

about five call-outs last week to

motor vehicle accidents.

There has been two

fatal accidents within

the past four weeks.

Motor vehicle accidents

were on the increase

as a proportion

of the brigade’s work.

Poor judgement, lack

of knowledge about

road rules, impatience

and increasing volumes

of traffic could all be

contributing factors,

said Mr Thomson.

Only two fire call-outs had

been taken over the holiday period,

one a bonfire lit by campers

trying to stay warm.

“Everybody’s so aware of the

risks since the Port Hills fires.”

The number of call-outs had

been about normal for the holiday

period in Little River.

There was “plenty of madness

on the road, but luckily we didn’t

have too much to do”, said Little

River chief fire officer David

Irving.

Motor vehicle incidents made

up a third of Little River’s 99

call-outs last year, with fire and

medical events each making up

a third.

The prospect of two new fire

trucks arriving mid-year was

something to look forward to,

said Mr Irving.

“We’ve probably got enough

funding for our new support

vehicle as well, which is due for

replacement, so it could be a big

year for us vehicle-wise.”

Sumner Fire Brigade chief fire

Mark Thomson

officer Daryl Sayer said it had

five call-outs between Christmas

Day and January 11.

None were serious, he said,

adding that it was pleasing to

see people were letting off fewer

fireworks than normal.

The brigade had 88

call-outs during the

year.

Governors Bay chief

fire officer Andrew Norris

said 2017 had been

busier than usual with

118 call-outs between

January 1 and December

31.

The station averaged

about 70 call-outs a year.

Much of that increase

could be put down to the Port

Hills fires in February, Mr Norris

said.

It had also been a busy period

since Christmas Day with seven

call-outs to January 11.

Three were motor vehicle accidents,

including a fatal crash

on Dyers Pass Rd.

Two were “smoke chasers”

– calls reporting sightings of

smoke which turned out to be

CRASH: The Akaroa Fire Brigade attended multiple vehicle accidents since New Year’s Day,

including the crash above on January 5, in which no one was injured. ​

clouds or dust. One call was

about a tree that came down

in strong wind and one was a

false alarm at the Governors Bay

Hotel caused by water.

Diamond Harbour chief fire

officer Bob Palmer said the station

had been relatively quiet

with no fire calls since Christmas

Day, though there had been

the Firefighter Sky Tower Stair

Challenge in May.

“a few medical calls as usual”.

Recent rain had dampened

tinder dry conditions and, on the

whole, people were

“pretty fire wise

these days”, he said.

Call numbers were

slightly down on the

average 100 for the

year.

Lyttelton Fire Brigade

chief fire officer

Mark Buckley said it

had been quiet over

the holiday period

with only two or

three minor calls.

The station fielded 118 callouts

over the course of the year,

on a par with previous years.

“The usual average is between

110-130. It can be higher or

lower, depending on weather

and seismic events.” He

said about seven brigade

volunteers were starting

to train for the annual

Firefighter Sky Tower Stair

Challenge in Auckland in

May, a national fundraiser

for leukaemia and Blood

Cancer New Zealand.

About 150 brigades take

part, and Lyttelton was

usually in the top two for funds

raised, Mr Buckley said, averaging

about $15,000.

“We’re really proud of our guys

that participate in that. We’ve

got about three members within

the team that are very passionate

about what they’re fundraising

for. They’re very diligent – every

Saturday they’re along at the Lyttelton

Farmers’ Market shaking

the bucket.”

YOUNG GUN: Ava Henderson (above left) won her first national title in Gisborne in the under-14 girls category, while her mum Donna won her second national title

in the women’s over 40.

Mother, daughter win on the waves

• By Gordon FIndlater

A TRIO of local surfers have

returned home with titles after

competing at the national

surfing championship at

Makorori Beach, Gisborne, last

week.

Taylors Mistake mother and

daughter, Donna and Ava Henderson,

had the perfect family

vacation by both claiming gold

medals.

Donna won the women’s over

40 title with a score of 10.2 in

the final. She also finished third

in the longboard category. Her

daughter Ava, 12, took out her

first national title by winning

the girls under-14 section with

a score of 13.7 to finish ahead of

Levin’s Natasha Gouldsbury and

Piha’s Liv Haysom.

More impressively, Ava also

competed in the girls under-16

against much older opposition

where she held her own. She

posted the top score of 12.4 in

the heats before being eliminated

at the semi-final stage.

Donna is the founder of the

Christchurch School of Surf at

Sumner Beach.

She has been surfing since

her early 20s and won her first

national title at the age of 42 in

2017. Ava on the other hand has

now already claimed her first

national crown at just 12-yearsold.

Redcliffs resident Lucy Te

Moananui also claimed a title in

Gisborne in the women’s over 30

category.

She also finished third in the

women’s stand up paddleboard

final with a score of 9.97 behind

Stella Smith from Gisborne

and Alexis Poulter from Waihi.

Te Moananui also made it

to the semi-final stage in the

longboard.

There was also success for

Estella Hungerford, who finished

second in the women’s longboard

with a score of 6.83, behind

Auckland’s Sasha Brownlie.

Hungerford also finished fourth

in the girls under-16 final by

scoring 7.17.

RIPPING INTO IT: Estella Hungerford (left) finished second in

the women’s longboard and fourth in the under-16 girls. Lucy

Te Moananui won the women’s over 30 category and finished

A letter to our community.

Thank you to our wonderful staff and to all those helping us following the recent devastating fire

at the GELITA NZ plant in Woolston, Christchurch.

There were four people on site at the time of the fire and fortunately no one was hurt.

The fire has caused major structural and electrical damage, primarily in our processing area, and

the food manufacturing areas of the plant. Our first job is to clean up, now that the fire and

insurance investigators have given us the go ahead.

The clean-up operation will include the removal of partially processed beef hide from the site over

the next three or so weeks. During the removal, there will unfortunately be increased odours at

some stages of the day.

We are keenly aware of our near neighbours and will work very hard to keep the impact to an

absolute minimum. Despite our best efforts, we expect that there will be spikes in odour while the

partly processed material is treated and removed. It’s a huge job.

But, once the material is removed, the source of the odour will have been eliminated.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding while we undertake this work and we

apologise for any short-term effect this may have on our local community.

GELITA NZ takes beef hide, a by-product from meat works, extracts the collagen, and turns it into

gelatine powder for use in a broad range of industries including the food, beverage, health and

pharmaceutical sectors.

While the fire has been a major setback for GELITA NZ, the plant was fully insured and our parent

company has established a support team in Germany to help us through this period of uncertainty.

Our customers are being serviced by the wider GELITA group while we plan for our future.

We remain positive. GELITA NZ employs 60 staff and a further 300 indirectly. About three-quarters

of our high quality gelatine is sent overseas.

There is no doubt that we face a difficult period but we will continue to work hard for our future.

Stretch

your way back to it

As we return to our normal daily routines after the holidays you

may begin to find the odd ache or pain creeping in.

This is a good indicator from our

bodies, that the holiday routine

was somewhat different. Perhaps

you sit a lot for work and you

were on the go or, you are normally more

active and the holiday break was more

sedentary. Either way the sooner you pay

attention to these signals the easier it will

be to deal with it.

So what can you do to ward off pain

and stiffness and boost your energy and

alertness? 10 simple stretching exercises

at your desk that will release tension from

head to toe. They take only a few minutes.

Set the alarm on your cell phone or

computer to go off every hour to remind

you it’s time to get up and stretch.

Just stand up and sit down - no hands

If you stand up and sit down (over and

over) without using your hands it can be a

challenge, do it while you’re on the phone;

no one will know.

Shrug your shoulders - to release the neck and shoulders

Inhale deeply and shrug your shoulders,

lifting them high up to your ears. Hold.

Release and drop. Repeat three times.

Loosen the hands with air circles

Clench both fists, stretching both hands

out in front of you.

Make circles in the air, first in one direction,

to the count of ten. Then reverse the circles.

Shake out the hands.

Point your fingers - good for hands, wrist, and forearms

Stretch your left hand out in front of you,

pointing fingers toward the floor. Use your

right hand to increase the stretch, pushing

your fingers down and toward the body.

Be gentle do the same with the other hand.

Now stretch your left hand out straight

in front, wrist bent, with fingers pointing

skyward. Use your right hand to increase

the stretch, pulling the fingers back toward

your body. Do the same on the other side.

Release the upper body with a torso twist

Inhale and as you exhale, turn to the right

and grab the back of your chair with your

right hand, and grab the arm of the chair

with your left. With eyes level, use your

grasp on the chair to help twist your torso

around as far to the back of the room as

possible. Hold the twist and let your eyes

continue the stretch see how far around

the room you can peer. Slowly come back

to facing forward. Repeat on the other side.

Do leg extensions

Grab the seat of your chair to brace yourself

and extend your legs straight out in front of

you so they are parallel to the floor.Flex and

point your toes five times. Release. Repeat.

Stretch your back with a “big hug”

Hug your body, placing the right hand on

your left shoulder and the left hand on your

right shoulder. Breathe in and out, releasing

the area between your shoulder blades.

Cross your arms - for the shoulders and upper back

Extend one arm out straight in front of you.

With the other hand, grab the elbow of the

outstretched arm and pull it across your

chest, stretching your shoulder and upper

back muscles. Hold. Release. Stretch out the

other arm in front of you - repeat.

Stretch your back and shoulders with a “leg hug”

Sit on the edge of your chair (if it has

wheels, wedge the chair against the desk or

wall to make sure it does not roll). Put your

feet together, flat on the floor.

Lean over, chest to knees, letting your arms

dangle loosely to the floor. Release your

neck. Now bring your hands behind your

legs, right hand grasping left wrist, forearm

(or elbow if you can reach that far), left hand

grasping the right. Feel the stretch in your

back, shoulders and neck. Hold. Release

your hands to the floor again. Repeat three

times or as often as it feels good.

Look up to release upper body

Sit up tall in your chair, or stand up. Stretch

your arms overhead and interlock your

fingers. Turn the palms to the ceiling as

you lift your chin up, tilt your head back,

and gaze up at the ceiling, too. Inhale,

exhale, release.
