That’s what we all learned last April 3 when Anytime Fitness yoga instructor Jethrine Peralta gave us a crash course on using BackJoy SitSmart Posture Core for basic yoga exercises.

Enlightening us on this latest revolutionary product, BackJoy senior regional manager for Southeast Asia Doreen Lee flew all the way from Singapore to join the Davao activity.

“BackJoy aids one’s body in achieving an optimal posture while naturally relieving back aches especially when you need to sit for hours,” said Lee, referring to office workers who spend hours sitting as well as to students inside classrooms and travelers in long-haul journeys.

According to Lee, this latest BackJoy technology works on any type of seat. It is also ergonomically designed and built with comfortable, and lightweight material, which makes it even easier for you to slip it inside your gym bag or travel luggage.

Senior brand executive Louie Zamuco also joined Lee in the Davao yoga event. BackJoy is distributed nationwide by Primer Group of Companies.

Last year, Davao Mayor Sara Duterte Carpio declared the city as the “Philippines’ Chocolate Capital”. However, this declaration has to be supported by a legislation that Senator Cynthia A. Villar, committee on agriculture chair, has committed to support.

Local chocolate producers, mostly small home-based enterprises to medium-sized companies, supported the expo.
