Restoratives this week!!

Hi Everyone!!

It seems like it has been awhile since
I last taught. I recently had some head 
cold that wouldn't let go for a couple of weeks.

I am feeling much better now, especially after
attending a 3-day workshop with
my favorite yoga teacher,
Judith Hanson Lasater.

If you are planning on attending yoga this week
then be prepared to RESTORE!!
We will stretch and twist to start and then
drape ourselves over props to relax fully.

Sounds good? I hope so.
See you soon.

Thanks for stopping by!!


 If you are new to this blog, I mostly post information here on my weekly classes, workshops, class cancellations, and sometimes links to my latest essays on my OTHER blog (see link below).

As you may have noticed (or even attended the class), I have been teaching a workshop that focuses on shoulder health. Since this is such a broad AND important topic, I hope that you will consider attending one of my weekly classes. 

For the next several months, we will be spending more time getting to know the shoulders with lots of stretches and strengthening exercises. Since I have tight shoulders and you probably do, too, I hope to see you soon in class.

For those that didn't attend the shoulder health classes and would like to purchase some of the Yoga Therapy Balls, please email me. (FYI: The ones that everyone received at the PBPN class yesterday are a slightly larger size than the ones I have for sale.) Please email me at least a day before class just to ensure that I see the email.

I hope to see you on the mat!

Can you tell I am excited about this workshop???

Hi Everyone!!

I hope you are able to enjoy the cooler temperatures this weekend! We all needed a break from the relentless heat.

As you can see, I will be teaching a shoulder health workshop this fall. For those that attended my "Healthy Feet for a Healthier You" workshop over a year ago, this workshop will have a similar approach. 

Essentially, there will be a power-point presentation, exercises with and without the Yoga Therapy Balls, and LOTS of information on healthy movements for your shoulders. I will go over basic alignment cues so that we have a neutral starting point. Everyone will work within their natural range-of-motion, so this class is great for almost everyone.

That said, if you have a chronic problem, frozen shoulder, or another issue that you are seeing a doctor about PLEASE talk to your doctor before attending this class. 

I am NOT a physical therapist. I AM someone who is passionate about learning how to stay healthy and strong for the rest of my life. I would love to share with you what I have learned from many anatomists, physical therapists, bio-mechanists, and other researchers on overall body health.

I hope you will join me on this quest for a healthier life through healthy movements.

See you soon!!
