There are multiple sections of the spine, and each of them can cause us troubles. My individual workshops address two of the most troublesome areas: the lumbar and cervical vertebrae.
Pain in the Lumbar
There is a good chance that the way you are sitting or standing at this very moment could be hurting your low back. Spend an afternoon learning more about the area of the body that tends to give people more troubles than any other part: the low back. We will discuss healthy anatomy, functions of the spine and explore ways of improving strength and mobility through yoga. This class is suitable for students and teachers. Yoga Alliance CEU’s will be provided if requested. This workshop is not appropriate for anyone in acute, undiagnosed pain. This workshop will be a mixture of lecture and light practice.
Melt Shoulder Tension
At the end of the day do you find that your shoulders and neck have tightened?
Do you reach to massage the back of your neck in hope of finding relief?
Cell phones, computers and driving all contribute to short, weak muscles of the neck and upper back. Often referred to as “text neck”, these muscles are ground zero for stress. As a matter of fact, I often teach about these muscle groups by referring to them as “the stress muscles”. But they don’t have to be.
In this workshop I will provide a brief introduction of these muscle groups. We will then begin fascial release methods to lengthen and strengthen them so that you will find more space, comfort and ease in this area of the body.
Join me on this path of nurturing your body in the way it was meant to be nurtured by using the soft tissues in the way they were meant to be used.
