School Chairs Petition

 

Our petition to European Committee of Standardisation (CEN)

STAT leads campaign to ban school chairs ‘bad’ for children’s backs.

To sign our petition click here.

STAT is calling for changes to the European standard which currently allows a school chair to slope backwards by five degrees. Backward sloping chairs encourage children to adopt poor posture which health experts say increases the risk of back pain among children during their school years and, crucially, later in life.

I have been taking lessons for a few years now. Right from the first lesson my chronic back pain improved and I was moving more smoothly. After a lesson I always feel lighter, more positive and more confident. The Alexander Technique has helped me to realise that I have a choice about how I use my body. This awareness has spread to other areas of my life and I now feel more in control of myself and my life.
