Group Exercise for Women in Ophthalmology
The daily activities of an ophthalmologist encourage hunching the shoulders, caving the chest area and potentially straining the neck. The upper body is often taxed and our lower bodies are seldom considered.
Join WIO in the Spa Garden for a different group exercises each day of the conference that anyone can incorporate into their busy life! (yoga mats and blocks are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, no registration required)
