Restorative Yoga

Beth Daughtery

Saturday, November 5, 2022 12.30-5.30pm

We work very hard in our lives today, rarely taking the time to rest. On top to that, we live in a culture of chronic stress. This stress can cause many ailments that include high blood pressure, ulcers, back pain, and emotional disturbances. Restorative yoga poses enable our bodies to completely relax and rest, lowering our heart rate and blood pressure, as well as providing an emotional release for our minds. Students will need to purchase "Relax and Renew" By Judith Hanson Lasater which can be purchased on Amazon.

 Certified Yoga Instructors will receive 5hrs of continuing education credits that can be registered with Yoga Alliance. Cost $150.

Free our shoulders

Dr Jaicy Harless

Sunday, November 13, 2022 3-5.00pm

Are you struggling to master your arm balances? Maybe you're feeling like the yoga pushup or chaturanga is pipedream. In this workshop with Dr. Jaicy Harless , local independent physical therapist from Elite Physical Therapy will be leading this facts-based, results focused, super informative workshop where we will discuss the anatomy of our shoulders (and maybe touch a little on the upper back) and the roles they play in our day to day life as well as our yoga practice. Then, we will work on isolating responsible stabilizing muscles to be sure we are engaging and strengthening the right places before tying it all together with plenty of time to practice your new skills in the yoga poses you love or movements you love.
The price of this event is $35. You will leave with a repertoire of new and creative drills that will help you stay safe, improve mobility, move with less pain maybe, and practice longer.
