I work in an office and the AT has made noticeable differences in my work day. I know now how to sit with more ease as I am at the desk for long periods of time. I hunch-over far less. AT helps me be happier in the doldrums of office culture. I look forward to lessons because they are fun and each time I learn a little more on how to control my reactions which otherwise might be unconscious. Thanks. David
