Plan to sort Rapaki Rd

parking concerns stalls

• By Caitlin Miles

A PLAN to ban parking on busy

Rapaki Rd has been put on hold

due to nearby residents’ concerns of

the impact on surrounding streets.

The road is the main access route

to Rapaki Track, which is popular

with walkers, runners and mountain

bikers – causing issues for

people who live on Rapaki Rd.

In November, the city council

proposed banning parking on

Rapaki Rd due to ongoing concern

from residents about safely accessing

the street and their driveways.

A parking ban on one side of

Erewhon Tce was also included in

the plan, because cars

are often parked on that

street if Rapaki Rd is full.

The proposal was meant

to go to the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community

Board next month for

approval, but that will be

put on hold.

Following the submissions

received, city council acting

head of transport Steffan Thomas

said the project has been put on

hold due to concerns raised over

how the surrounding roads will be

effected by the ban.

The city council received 93 submissions

on the plans, 66 supported

the idea, 24 were against and three

submissions were unclear.

Thirty of those submissions, both

for and against the parking restrictions,

were concerned over the

impact on the surrounding streets,

namely Vernon Tce.

One submitter opposed the plans

because Vernon Tce is “already

dangerously congested” and banning

parking on Rapaki Rd will

only add to the congestion.

A Vernon Tce resident said they

were “terrified that restrictions

proposed on Rapaki Rd will have

an extremely detrimental effect on

traffic, congestion, parking and

safety on Vernon Tce,” and opposed

the parking ban unless more parking

is provided elsewhere.

“As a result, the project

has been put on hold temporarily

to consider whether

any additional parking

controls should be proposed

further afield,” Mr Thomas

said.

City councillor Tim Scandrett

(left) said Vernon Tce

residents had a right to be

concerned.

“The ideas raised in the submissions

were very good ones and we

do need to look at the plan again

and see what we can do,” Cr Scandrett

said.

Mr Thomas said the next step

of the project will be to undertake

further consultation with affected

properties if changes are made to

the plan.

CANTERBURY’S police chief

John Price gives an insight into the

role of a police officer in our weekly

Soap Box column on page 4.

Price is a good guy who has

made an impact since his return

to Christchurch as the region’s

police chief about 18 months ago.

New Zealand police have a

deserved reputation as being

amongst the best in the world in

terms of getting the job done, and

integrity.

It’s often a thankless job where

police have to put up with all sorts

off rubbish, often booze and drugfuelled.

We also feature Kate Russell,

(pages 6-7) who has been a leader

in the not-for-profit health sector

for 24 years. Reporter Georgia

O’Connor-Harding spoke to her

about working at the Canterbury

Medical Research Foundation

and what it was like to raise three

children as a solo parent.

Signs surprise school principal

• By Caitlin Miles

SIGNS WARNING motorists of

St Anne’s Catholic School have

been installed on Ferry Rd.

The signs come after Southern

View highlighted concerns the

school had over pupil safety on

the busy road in Woolston.

School principal Dallas

Wichman said while he was

happy the signs had been

installed, 40km/h speed limits

still needed to be put in urgently.

“The signs are good but after

a while people will forget about

them, at least something that is

flashing will get

more attention for

just 10 minutes

and that’s what

we need,” Mr

Wichman (left)

said.

During the

holidays, the city council

installed four school signs at a

cost of $1200.

City council acting head of

transport, Steffan Thomas, said

they were installed to make

people aware they are near a

school and children are about.

“The signs were installed to

raise awareness of the presence

of the school. Council did this

in response to the principal’s

concerns about the level of

traffic. Some motorists appeared

not to be expecting schoolrelated

travel activity,” Mr

Thomas said.

Mr Wichman said he didn’t

know the signs were going in.

He said he arrived at the

school and saw them there.

In a city council list of 18

schools prioritised for lower

speed limits, St Anne’s doesn’t

feature on the list.

Mr Thomas said schools are

prioritised based on a number

of factors relating to the road

environment outside.

“The list is reviewed regularly

and the ranking of an individual

school can change due to the

school, and the surrounding

environment, changing,” he

said.

The school is in a 50km/h

speed limit and by making

it a school zone, the speed of

the road would be reduced to

40km/h during times when

pupils are arriving and leaving.

At any other time, the usual

speed limit applies.

Traffic figures from April

last year showed along Ferry

Rd between Osborne St and

Aldwins Rd an average of 24,600

vehicles per day used the road

with 1810 during peak traffic

from 8am to 9am and the same

figures for the school peak

between 3pm and 4pm.

Mr Wichman said “anything

is better than nothing” and he

hopes this encourages the city

council to put flashing speed

signs in sooner rather than later.

In Brief

SIGN OF THE KIWI

The Sign of the Kiwi reopened

yesterday after six years. The

building at the top of Dyers

Pass Rd was closed following

the September 4, 2010, earthquake.

It then suffered further

damage on February 22, 2011.

Before the building was closed,

it operated as a cafe and shop.

The cafe has reopened following

$760,000 in strengthening

work.

SPARKS RD REOPENING

Sparks Rd will reopen

on Sunday following the

installation of the Southeast

Halswell Waste Water Scheme.

FEEDBACK SOUGHT

The public can now have their

say on what they want in the

Woolston Community Facility

after consultation opened

yesterday. The city council

plans to build a facility on Ferry

Rd after the community library

was demolished in June 2011

due to extensive earthquake

damage. The city council has set

aside $1.6 million in its annual

plan to replace the old library.

Once public involvement in the

new facility’s design is finished,

the city council will create a

concept design to formally

present to the community for

feedback on the project.

policing

I am extremely proud of

the police team who serve the

people and make a difference

to the community every

minute of every day as our

team keep the peace and

ensure the public will be safe

and feel safe.

In New Zealand our police

have the implicit consent of the

community.

In order to do this we must

be seen as policing with integrity

and with accountability.

Essentially we must have the

trust and confidence of the

community.

Policing by consent follows

the principles, ideas and ideals

of Sir Robert Peel which define

an ethical police organisation.

These ‘Peelian Principles’

are as relevant today as they

were in 1829 when they were

established.

Police, at all times, should

the public that gives reality to

the historic tradition that the

police are the public, and the

public are the police.

We maintain the highest level

of ‘full trust and confidence’

of any policing organisation in

the world, at about 80 per cent.

By comparison, some policing

jurisdictions have trust and

confidence levels lower that

10 per cent, demonstrating

that those organisations are

not widely seen as ethical and

trustworthy.

If you have travelled overseas

you will have seen examples of

policing organisations whose

approach is to police with fear

and only force.

We place enormous importance

on maintaining and fostering

the trust and confidence

of our communities and we

work hard to ensure we maintain

our core values and hold

each other to account.

Having been a member

for 30 years I think the community

is justified in having

trust and confidence in this

organisation.

In Canterbury we want to

ensure that people can be safe

and feel safe and I’m sure that

is a sentiment you will share.

Our focus is on reducing

harm caused to families,

whether that be through violence

in the home, death and

injury on the roads, drug use

or dishonesty offending.

We also want to empower

communities to work together,

support each other and to

speak up when something isn’t

right.

We work very closely with a

range of agencies and community

groups to ensure people

receive the support they need

and deserve.

Youth group gets pool open

• By Caitlin Miles

WHILE LINWOOD may

not have a pool complex,

an organisation focused on

working with youth is coming

to the rescue and running

the local school pool over the

summer.

Youthtown is operating the

community pool, located at

Linwood Avenue School, for a

second year.

This year, Youthtown encouraged

eight local teenagers to

become volunteer lifeguards to

help keep an eye on the children

using the pool.

The city council helped cover

the costs of training the eight

teenagers. Youthtown southern

area manager, Amanda Murray,

said it wanted to help give local

kids some useful skills.

“We think it’s really good to

get the local teenagers involved

and this way they can then work

at other council-run pools with

the training and skills they’ve

learnt,” Ms Murray said.

To help with costs of running

the pool, the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

granted the organisation $6500

to help cover lifeguard wages

and running costs.

“We’re training eight teenagers

to help out. It gives the local

kids a chance to learn some new

skills too,” Ms Murray said.

Users pay $1 a day to be able

to use the pool, which is open

seven days a week from 11am

until 6pm.

She said it was great to be

able to provide a pool for the

community over the summer

months, since there isn’t one

available in the area.

But she said the community

was vocal about its desire for a

long-term solution.

A $21.8 million pool is

planned for the Linwood

Woolston area. A project team

was assigned last year, with a design

due in November this year

and construction to start on the

project in 2018.

The school pool opened at the

start of January and will close

on Waitangi weekend.

In Brief

WOODS MILL DEVELOPMENT

Another bid is being made to

restore the historic Woods Mill

buildings in Addington. Loprinzi

Properties is seeking $900,000

from the city council to restore the

Wise St property. The city council

will decide on Thursday if it will

approve the money for restoration.

Previous attempts by developers

to restore the building have fallen

through and the money has never

been formerly handed over. The

buildings – a four-storey and a

two-storey structure – date back to

1886. They have been empty since

the February 22, 2011, earthquake.

The company wants to turn the

buildings into a retail complex.

It estimates the cost of the

development to be $7.6 million.

SKATE PARK PLANS

Concepts for two skate parks

planned for Halswell have been

released. The concept designs

incorporate many of the wishlist

items that young people and

locals requested. The plans for

the Halswell Domain Skate and

Recreation Park and Knights

Stream Skate Park include a skate

bowl, quarter pipes, seating and

shaded areas. If the plans are

approved, it is expected to take

three months to complete each

skate park. Consultation on the

plans will be open until February

20.

Kate Russell

Proud mum awarded for her

Kate Russell has been a leader in the

not-for-profit health sector for 24 years. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding spoke to her about working

at the Canterbury Medical Research Foundation

and what it was like to raise three children as a

solo parent.

Congratulations on becoming

and Officer of the New Zealand

Order of Merit. You must be

very excited?

I was thrilled when I heard.

My first reaction was who the

heck must have nominated

me? But I still don’t know and

possibly never will. I am very

honoured. I didn’t know I was

going to get nominated. There

are so many different sectors

in my professional life where it

could have come from, but they

said health and governance and

that has narrowed it down.

What made you stick to

helping the not-for-profit

organisations?

I fell into the not-for-profit

sector by accident. My first job

was as a fundraising assistant

for Presbyterian Support. I

got it because it was a 20-hour

week job and it suited the fact I

had small children at the time.

I was in that job for a couple

of weeks and I had what you

would describe as a vocational

empathy of thinking, oh my

goodness, this is what I want to

do for the rest of my life. I was

30-years-old and aside from

being a mother, I hadn’t figured

out what I wanted to do careerwise.

I had always done things to

do with social justice. I had gone

on the ‘no tour marches’ and

was a junior member of human

rights organisation, Amnesty

International.

Tell me about working at the

Canterbury Medical Research

Foundation?

When I took this role, some

of my colleagues at the national

programme, Cystic Fibrosis New

Zealand, were like isn’t that a

step back because you are going

into a regional role? But after the

earthquakes, I very much had

in my heart to do something in

Canterbury. Medical research is

something you don’t always get

immediate results. In the nearly

three years I have been there, I

can’t say there has been a new

blockbuster drug. Rarely does

medical research go ahead in a

quantum leaps, it is these little

baby steps that happen over a

number of years.

Could give me a picture of the

research you are doing at the

moment?

We just finished a study on the

use of vitamin C and breast cancer.

We are also funding a young

women at Otago University

who is looking to use vitamin

C for people who have got ear

infections. We are also pivotal in

supporting the development of

role in medical research

How do you think our

medical research compares to

the rest of the world?

We punch very well above our

weight. What gets achieved here

in research for the fraction of a

cost is really quite astounding.

In spite of the frustration we all

naturally get with the health system

and getting put on waiting

lists and restricted medicines, we

still have universal public health

care here. When you look at the

hideous situation people in the

United States find themselves

in, where they don’t have health

insurance, we have a fabulous

system here. We only pay $5 per

item for medicine which may

cost up to $150. Still some people

complain about that.

You often hear about there

not being enough beds at

Christchurch Hospital.

For sure, Christchurch Hospital

is an incredibly busy hospital.

But the financial results and just

the strategic results the CDHB

gets in terms of the development

of new services; they are

just terrific and stack up very

well compared to the rest of the

district health boards around

the country. I can tell you these

places are populated by bloody

good people who all have a very

did it.

Would that have been one of

the most difficult times in your

life?

No. I always had plenty of

family support around me. I

have a very close family. But the

most difficult time of my life was

when I broke up with my first

husband. I was a solo parent on

my own for seven years with

three children. For me, it got to

the stage where I was very poor.

I wouldn’t say I had hit rock bottom,

but I was very poor and I

had to work very hard and make

significant sacrifices for the

well-being of my children. I was

there for some time and I had

to make a conscious decision to

climb myself out of that. To not

be dependent on welfare.

How did you get through?

The whole family had to make

sacrifices for that to occur.

There were a lot of times where

I couldn’t go to the kids’ sports

days. I couldn’t be the one to

drop them off at school or look

after them after school. I recognise

my children paid the price

for me putting a lot of evidence

on the development of my career.

I had a 12, eight and four-yearold.

What do your children say

about it now?

They are very proud. From

time to time, we have these conversations

where I say I still carry

some guilt about not being there

because I had to work. I had to

be the main bread-winner in the

family. They are very pragmatic

about it and say what you taught

us is a really good work ethic. We

understand why you did what

you did.

What was the job that got you

to turn your career around?

Probably the one that started

me on the road to financial

recovery and career development

was the one at CCS Disability

Action where I was the regional

fundraisng manager. That was

where I felt like my skills were

fully utilised and I was given a

sufficient amount of authority.

Have you found a new partner?

We are coming up to our

second year now and it is all very

I am much too independent.

Exactly, and my independence.

independence to me because my

Locked toilets cause a stink for

community board member

• By Caitlin Miles

A COMMUNITY board

member says locking the

public toilets in Linwood Park

because of constant vandalism

and graffiti is a waste of

resources.

The city council

has closed the

facility, and will

only unlock it for

sporting events.

Linwood-

Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Alexandra Davids (above) said

she thinks closing the toilets is a

“waste of money and resources,”

as the majority of visitors to the

park cannot use them.

The toilet block is located close

to the playground at the Bonar Pl

entrance to the park.

The nearest alternative pubic

toilets are across the park at

Eastgate Shopping Centre on

the corner of Linwood Ave and

Buckleys Rd.

City council acting head of

parks Brent Smith said quick

removal was the best way to

deter taggers along with graffitiresistant

paint.

“Unfortunately, taggers at

Linwood Park have not been

due to continued vandalism and graffiti.

deterred and, therefore, we

have had to close the toilet to the

public,” Mr Smith said.

Last year, there were 185

reports of vandalism to the

toilet block and, in 2013, $7100

was spent on paint to cover

graffiti and repaint the building.

However, Ms Davids felt that

the local school or artists could

paint a mural on the toilet block

to help deter vandalism.

“Getting local artists or local

kids involved would be great to

deter people from ruining it,” she

said.

FLAME FILES

Don’t make arson easy

• By Mark Thomas – Fire

Risk Management Officer

WE’RE IN a new year and

the same old incidents keep

on occurring. By this I mean

kitchen fires and arsons.

An unattended cooking fire

in Sockburn this week raised

an interesting dilemma for

landlords.

Most know that there is a

new building law requirement

that landlords provide smoke

detectors in their properties.

In the case referred to, there

weren’t any smoke alarms in a

rental where the tenant went off

to work forgetting about food

cooking on the stove.

Smoke was seen and Fire

Service troops attended. There

wasn’t too much of a mess and

our crew made sure there was

a brand new 10-year smoke

detector installed (free of charge

by the way) before the occupant

went back in.

But what would be the result if

the tenant had gone to bed after

cooking rather than leaving for

work? What if then the worst

happened? How would the law

treat the landlord?

It’s a good enough reason to

make sure an alarm is there

and that the installation is

recorded. Then it’s the tenant’s

responsibility if the alarm is

removed. Otherwise landlords,

you could be in the gun!

An arson fire in Addington

on Wednesday morning was

lit in cardboard stored under a

canopy in the rear yard. Most

of the damage was cosmetic

but some light fittings and

air conditioning units were

destroyed. It probably wouldn’t

have happened if combustibles

hadn’t been available.

Please make sure your skips,

bins and cardboard cages are

locked and away from your

building.

Don’t make it easy!

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Advanced Weight

Management Support +

GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD is the latest

in Natural Weight Management Support

to hit the market. It contains three well

researched herbal extracts in optimum

amounts to support weight management

as well as offer surprising benefits for good

health.

An extract of the purple rind of

Mangosteen contains an amazing

group of compounds called Xanthones.

Xanthones may support weight loss by

helping normalising a slow metabolism

(common as we age), improving digestive

function and nutrient absorption, acting

as a powerful appetite suppressant by

promoting synthesis of glycogen in the

body (With adequate levels of glycogen

the brain receives a signal to suppress the

appetite), increasing energy and activity

levels (but non stimulating) as well as

supporting fat metabolism. Xanthones also

offer amazing health support in other ways.

They contain a wide variety of vitamins

and minerals as well as some of the most

powerful antioxidant nutrients found in

nature that may help slow the aging process,

ward off degenerative diseases and physical

and mental deterioration.

East Indian Globe Thistle has been

shown to increase the levels of the hormone

adiponectin which encourages food to

be burned as energy rather than stored

as fat. When East Indian Globe Thistle is

combined with Xanthones weight loss is

potentiated as shown in an 8 week study of

100 people on a calorie controlled diet with

exercise where half the participants took

the combination of the two herbs. Weight

loss benefits, including a reduction in hip

and waist size were significantly increased

in the 50 people using the combination of

East Indian Globe Thistle and Xanthones

compared to those on diet and exercise

alone.

The third ingredient Garcinia Cambogia

is a source of hydroxycitric acid or HCA.

HCA can help burn fat for energy, help stop

the formation of fat from excess calories

in the diet, while reducing the appetite as

well as food cravings. It has become one of

the most popular weight loss supplements

for this reason. Garcinia Cambogia also

increases your serotonin levels which can

improve mood and sleep.

One of the big problems today is we

eat much more than we need. This excess

eating has been shown to lead to serious

health issues as well as a shorter life span.

GO SLIM GARCINIA GOLD contains

three powerful natural ingredients to

support a healthy weight as well as the

potential to support improved body

function.

Krill Oil No.1

for Good Health!

All our body cell membranes are made

up of phospholipids exactly the same

phospholipids as available in Krill Oil.

These phospholipids available in Krill

are its big advantage over fish oil that is

in a triglyceride form and that must be

converted by our liver to phospholipid

form to be able to have benefits to our

cell membranes. This conversion of

triglycerides to phospholipids is inefficient

and a much larger dose of fish oil is

needed for the same benefits as a much

smaller dose of Krill Oil. Some research

has shown Krill Oil to be 48 times more

potent than fish oil. Another benefit of Krill

Oil is it contains one of the most potent

antioxidants known, Astaxanthin.

Recent research shows Krill Oil can

lower your risk for cardiovascular disease,

metabolic syndrome, obesity, Type-2

diabetes and may lessen a variety of brain

and mental disorders including Autism

and Dyslexia, Parkinson’s and some forms

of Alzheimer’s disease. Krill Oil can help

normalise high blood pressure by reducing

inflammation of the blood vessels and

improving blood quality. It is also highly

effective at reducing high cholesterol

levels, increasing HDL cholesterol,

reducing triglycerides (a damaging blood

fat), reducing C - reactive protein and

reducing other damaging blood factors. It

can also reduce dangerous fat levels in the

liver and heart. Krill Oil is also a natural

anti-inflammatory and can help reduce

SOUTHERN VIEW

pain, improve joint function and reduce

symptoms of arthritis.

The secret is therefore the phospholipid

and Astaxanthin content rather than

just the amount of Krill oil in the soft gel

capsule. Some brands have very low levels

of these two important compounds and

may not even list them on the label. For the

maximum nutritional benefit we are happy

to help you choose a quality product with

effective amounts of Phospholipids and

Astaxanthin and at a realistic price.

Belly Dancing

Show your body a little love with some

fun, gentle exercise starting this Valentine’s

Day. Kashmir’s beginner belly dance class

runs for eight weeks and explores not only

the movement of belly dance but also a

little of the background. You can watch

some of the top belly dancers on video,

begin to get a feel for the music, and get a

glimpse into a different culture all while

learning about how your own body can

move to express the music as a belly dancer.

Belly dance is the dance of celebration

and entertainment in many Middle Eastern

countries. Everyone does it (men, women,

singing and receive six weeks of group

singing lessons for $70. The lessons begin

on Wednesday 1 February at 7pm.

The Chorus was founded in 1985 and

is directed by Virginia Humphrey-Taylor.

There are over 100 members with ages

ranging from 21 years to over 70. Sweet

Adelines is a world-wide organisation

with over 600 choruses singing in the

barbershop style.

All ages and voice ranges are welcome.

The ability to read music is not necessary.

Contact us, phone 022 689 9745 to find

out more. See you there.

and children). It is kind to the body with

no extreme flexibility required and, unlike

most folkdances, no jumping. It is based

around movement of the torso rather than

footwork.

Although travelling and weight

transitions are required for stage work, as

a beginner you will learn mainly to move

your hips and shoulders (“belly” dance is

a misnomer). Then you can start to put

movements together into phrases, add

“layering” (two or more things at once),

and sharpen your ability to isolate.

Line up for some fun

& learn to line dance

If you like to dance, want a social life

with a friendly bunch of people, then

Line Dancing could be just what you

are looking for. Scientists theorize that

dancing has a triple benefit for the brain,

it increases blood flow, reduces stress

and keeps that vital grey matter in shape.

Dancing also combines physical, mental

and social activity and is a whole lot of

fun too. Laughing is good for you because

it increases our ability to think positively

and we even cater for people who think

they have two left feet. You can have all

these benefits plus meeting new friends by

joining “Cathedral City Line Dancers”.

Aikido Shinryukan

Do you enjoy cards?

Canterbury

This is the advice we always give to

people who want to learn aikido. It really

is that easy. Of course every new student

is naturally apprehensive about beginning

a Japanese martial art; we have all “been

first step.

At Aikido Shinryukan Canterbury we

take care to ease beginners into training

through our basics classes taken by

senior instructors. Step by step we build

knowledge. We focus on beginners

understanding the fundamentals of aikido

so that they can take the next step and

begin what we hope will be a life long study

of the art. Anyone can do aikido regardless

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.
