Body in Balance: Strong & Supple Shoulders with Michelle Dalbec . Sat, Sep 24, 2016 at 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Do your shoulders have you in a slump? Are they dragging you down? Have they become a pain in your neck? Many of our modern day habits and postures have lead us to limited mobility and weakness in the shoulders, pain in the neck, tension in the chest and upper back, compromised breath, and altered spinal alignment.

This workshop starts with a deep release of the shoulder, upper back, and chest area with targeted self-massage using specially designed soft pliable therapy balls. From there we continue with a series of creative corrective movements that stretch, strengthen, and balance the shoulders from the inside out. Balls provided to borrow; if you have previously attended a Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball workshop with Michelle and have a set of Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls, you are welcome to bring them and use them during this workshop.

$45 per person. Register before September 17 and pay just $40! Continuing Education Credit certificates for Registered Yoga Teachers with Yoga Alliance will be available for this workshop.

Yin Yoga with Sandi Powers Sat, Nov 5, 2016 at 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Yin Yoga is a nourishing practice that focusing on slowing down and “allowing”. Most Yoga practices are a balance of Yin and Yang energy – heating, invigorating and active work complemented with cooling, calming and resting. Similar to Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga focuses on the more calming or “Yin” element of the practice.
 
Yin Yoga focuses on releasing the deeper soft tissues of body; our ligaments, joints, fascia, and bones and places a particular emphasis on the areas of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. In Yin Yoga, we hold postures for longer periods of time to allow a gentle release within in the body, a return to the breath, the cultivation of mindfulness and the opportunity to truly experience the present moment.
 
$30 per person; Register before Saturday, October 29 and pay just $25!
