Relax Your Shoulders Workshop, Part 2

Do you feel like you are carrying the whole world on your shoulders? Many of us carry tension here from computer work, driving, sitting and repetitive movements of work or life. We will explore the shoulders and upper back in practice and learn ways to address this tension with yoga.

Instead of surgery or repeat visits to a chiropractor, learn how to take care of your own shoulders and upper back in this workshop. You will discover how to work your yoga to address your unique structure so that you stretch, strengthen align and relax your shoulders. You will receive a short practice to do at home for ongoing maintenance.

The workshop includes lecture/discussion, observation and two practices.

Low Back Care Workshop

“Oh my aching back!” A large number of back problems are in the area of the low back and/or sacrum. This is especially true these days since we spend so much time sitting – at the office, in front of the TV, driving, and on the computer. This part of the spine is the foundation for the whole torso, and affects the spine all the way up to the crown. Like a house without a solid foundation which is subject to stress in a multitude of ways, the body cracks and strains without a strong and stable foundation.

Instead of surgery or repeat visits to a chiropractor, learn how to take care of your own lower back in this workshop. You will discover how to work your yoga to address your unique lumbar/pelvic curve so that you stretch, strengthen and stabilize your foundation.

The workshop includes lecture/discussion, observation and two practices.

Hips and Legs Workshop

The pelvis and legs provide our foundation for the rest of the body and are the generator for walking. If the hips are misaligned, too tight or unstable it can result in problems of the legs, knees, ankles and feet. We will learn about how to stretch and open the hips for greater mobility. As well, it is important to have a degree of foundational stability in the hips and pelvis, so we will learn about how to stabilize the parts that should remain strong and stable to protect the sacrum and knees.

You will receive a short practice to do at home to cultivate and maintain healthy hips and legs.

The workshop includes lecture/discussion, observation and two practices.
