I’ll be teaching 3 Yoga Therapy Workshops, each addressing a different area of the body:
February 18th, March 18th, April 8th, 2017
Saturday February 18th, 2-4:30pm: Core
Strong and mobile back and abdominal muscles are the key to tapping into our power in all of our movements, whether on the mat or in our day to day life. In this creative and playful 2.5 hour workshop, we’ll explore these muscles, and learn new ways to tone. If you’re ready to conquer plank pose, balance postures or press up into a handstand, or your going to freak out if you do another boring crunch, this workshop is just the ticket!
Saturday March 18th,
2-4:30pm: Hips and Legs
In this 2.5 hour Yoga Therapy workshop, we’ll explore basic anatomy and biomechanics of the hips and legs. If your hips ache after a few breaths in Warrior 3 or Half Moon, or you sit for work all day and your hips and legs need some love, this is just what the Yoga teacher order
ed! We’ll play with Therabands and tennis balls in yoga asana, empowering you with the tools you need to transform your body and posture practice. Come learn and play together in community!
Saturday April 8th, 2-4:30pm:
Neck, Shoulders, and Upper Back
If you have a tight neck and upper back, shoulder weakness or injury, or want to gain strength and mobility in your upper body, this workshop is for you!
In this 2.5 hour workshop, we’ll explore the basic anatomy and biomechanics of the neck, upper back, and shoulders. By learning about your own body, you can tailor your yoga practice to improve your postures and regain optimal function.
Each workshop costs $35. Register for all three workshops for $85 (a savings of $20!) If you’ve attended a previous yoga therapy workshop, join me again as you will learn new tricks and techniques for continued support on your path.
