A valuable workshop series to help students build strength, balance & confidence. For those who are new to yoga, just getting back into a practice or are not comfortable joining group classes. 4-5 top "general yoga class" postures are selected and the "how" and "why" of the physical and energetic components are explained and demonstrated. We break it down so you can build up the structure, alignment and confidence in yourself to master the pose. Adaptations are offered for your own unique conditions.
THERAPY INmotion - Yoga Prescription Series
These are ongoing yoga workshops that cover the full range of body movement through muscles, joints and mindfulness. We pay special attention to the unique aches and pains of each student throughout the series. Each individual workshop focuses on a specific body part or condition of the body and offers ways to adapt postures for the most benefit to the student. Great for athletes, as well as everyday bodies...especially those that hurt!
Back Care - Lower Back
(Based on protocols for The National Institute of Health)
Your low back not only supports your skeletal structure, but is also the seat of your emotional and energetic stability. We connect through the cakra system to create better understanding of Ayurveda principles.
Back Care - Upper Spine
We continue the exploration and move to the upper back and how it can virtually change the way you hold your head up! The shoulders, head and neck muscles are all critical in the alignment and movement of the spine. Learn simple "Yoga Snack" practices that help you prevent stiffness and create more alertness and freedom in your daily activities.
Healthy Happy Hips
Learn creative ways to keep your hips happy even in the most challenging hip "opener" postures. Our emotional “baggage” is often energetically stored in our hips and we will help you release tension and create ease. We will practice ways to increase stability both phusically and emotionally through balance postures.
Knees-”If You Please”
All that up and down in a yoga class! In life, our knees take a beating and you will learn ways to modify your yoga practice using yoga props and intelligent sequencing. Build strength, stability and awareness while supporting you structure. Great for new students who are considering surgery or those ready to come back from surgery.
