Back pain? Sore shoulders? Still carrying that lockdown weight?
In this conversation, former teacher Clare Rawlings, founder of Raw Movement, tells Dr Helen Wright why schools need to understand the importance of movement for both teachers and pupils.
She explains that no one is designed to spend their days sitting at a desk and there are clever ways to incorporate movement into the learning day and produce happier, healthier children and staff.
She also talks about the multiple musculoskeletal issues that can befall teaching staff, who often stand all day and frequently carry heavy books and other loads as part of their jobs. Back pain, for many, feels like part of the job – but it doesn’t need to be.
A must-watch for anyone looking to improve their working lives and that of those they lead.
