Techniques for Self Care in the Chair – Everybody Needs It

Posted by Pamela Shaddock on


Everybody knows they should be taking more than a little time for some self-care. But, with job deadlines, kids, household chores and on and on, we rarely make the time for this all important aspect of our health and well being. Well now you have no excuse! Christine Rose, LMT, of 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness, will teach you some great techniques for self-care whether you’re sitting at your computer or on the sofa watching TV. And the next time you’re in a virtual meeting, because you’re always in way too many “meetings” these days, turn that Zoom video off, hit the mute button and practice a little self-care. It’s as simple as that. 


About 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness

4 Corners Yoga + Wellness began as an inspiration in co-founders Christine Rose and Karuna O’Donnell’s 10 X 10 foot shared space at The Meeting Point, A Center for Multidimensional Healing, in Jamaica Plain. Their individual businesses of massage and yoga were expanding beyond their shared room and they began to imagine a beautiful, vibrant, wellness center in Dorchester that could be both a thriving small business and widen access to those who could benefit from these resources yet can’t readily afford these services. They have nurtured the vision of a welcoming and accessible community of wellbeing through bringing their life’s work forward together as 4 Corners Yoga + Wellness.
