Upper Body Tension Relief Special Workshop

with Jennifer (JJ) Fahler, E-RYT-500, AYS

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 6:45-8:15pm (in-studio)
 
$40/person
 
The most common cause of neck pain is stress on muscles and ligaments stemming from poor postural habits, which are often related to our computerized, stressful, sedentary lifestyle.
 
One of the most pain-producing postural problems is forward head posture, where the head protrudes in front of the shoulders and the upper back rounds.
 
For lasting relief of neck and shoulder pain, it’s essential to bring your postural awareness and yoga practice into daily life!
 
In this workshop, we will learn a set of postures (including some chair-based yoga poses) that you can weave into your day to cultivate proper sitting posture and enhance circulation in the neck, shoulders, and supporting muscles.
 
We will also use the wall as a tool, and practice on-the-floor gentle backbends that help counteract the effects of forward head posture on the muscles of the back, neck, shoulders, and chest.
 
Please bring to class: a yoga mat; all other props will be provided for you.

Restorative Yoga Special Class

with Jennifer (JJ) Fahler, E-RYT-500, AYS

FRIDAY OCTOBER 1ST, 6:30-8:00pm (in-studio)
 
$40/person
 
• Rejuvenate your body and mind
• Experience quiet in your busy life
• Reflect and reconnect with your true Self
 
Experience the art of slowing down. Restorative Yoga is a very gentle practice where you lie in a yoga position, fully supported by props (blankets, bolsters, blocks & straps) and relax into the pose. Once set up in a pose, you will release all the muscles in the body into a passive stretch.  

The slower pace and deep breathing that you get in a restorative yoga class triggers the parasympathetic nervous system from the very first pose. This activation helps to mitigate the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can be damaging to your physiology and well-being. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level.

Please bring your yoga mat; all other props will be provided for you

Gentle Yoga + Guided Meditation Special Class

with Lauren B., RYT-200

1. ONLINE CLASS – SUNDAY OCTOBER 3RD, 6:00-7:30pm
2. IN-STUDIO CLASS – SUNDAY OCTOBER 17TH, 6:00-7:30pm
 
$35/person

This introspective practice will help you to enjoy the benefits of letting go.

We will open the hips, back, chest and shoulders with flexibility poses that focus on lengthening and stretching the body. Asanas are held for several breaths to allow the body to sink deeply into the pose, mostly performed seated or lying on the mat. Good for everyone seeking a deeper sense of release and relaxation for both mind and body.

The last 1/2 hour of class incorporates guided meditation during final relaxation-a wonderful preparation for the week ahead!

Online: Props Needed: yoga mat, 2 blocks, 1 strap, 1-2 blankets (optional eye pillow).  A meeting link to join the virtual class will be sent to all enrolled 30 minutes prior to class start.
