Yoga at the Park

Jade Ruiz for SLC6A1.org

Back for the season is our Yoga at the Park!  Join us for a donation based beginner friendly yoga class under the Red Barn at Heritage Park, located just down the street from the studio.  (rain/bad weather location will be back at the studio.)  This event is free, but donations will be accepted for our partnership with the SLC6A1.org, a foundation dedicated to finding a cure for a very rare genetic disorder that causes seizures, learning disabilities, and more.  In our last event, we were able to raise $130!  Let's really make a difference in the lives of sweet kids suffering from this rare, but terrible disorder.

Yoga at the Park is in its second year.  Your friends at Thrive Yoga and Wellness take the yoga to neighborhood parks to provide free (donations accepted) beginner friendly yoga classes for you and all your friends.  This is a great way to get out and enjoy some of the area's best family friendly attractions, to meet some new neighbors, and to have a great time!  We can't wait to see you at the Park!

Pelvic Floor Workshop 2.0

Monika Patel, DPT

May 18, 2019 2:00 -3:30 pm

Do you suffer from Low Back Pain? Do you struggle with standing up straight? Do you find balance a struggle? This informative workshop will be lead by Monika Patel, DPT, owner of Fizeo, and a local expert in transverse abdominal and pelvic floor strengthening.  In this workshop, you will discover the connection between your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles and how they contribute to overall health and well being.

When we are able to locate, engage, strengthen, and utilize our abdominal and pelvic floor muscles, a number of health benefits follow. Whether it is increased balance, improved posture, and even a decrease in back pain, strengthening these muscles can help. In addition, by working with these muscles, we can experience other health and practice benefits such as less problems with incontinence, and even an easier time “flying” in your arm balances!


This workshop will include an experiential lecture where you identify and then experience the muscles in action with simple movements that are both yoga based and real-life functional movement based, all of which are designed specifically to help you incorporate these new muscles into your practice and daily life. 


The cost is $35.
