Yoga for Stress Management
Sunday March 25th 3-6pm KP Hall $60
Therapeutic Yoga Techniques for Managing Stress and Stress Related Disorders
Yoga for pain management is for anyone
dealing with chronic pain from injury, misalignments in the body, car
accidents, inflammatory issues, postural related problems, compressions, soft tissue injuries, tension
related headaches or migraines, sciatica, SI joint problems, plantar fasciitis,
instabilities in the spine due to pregnancy, or injury or chronic misuse and
any other type of chronic pain that is limiting your functional movement and ability to thrive in your life.
Yoga for pain management is a systematic and therapeutic approach that can be used to help reduce pain, and empower you to help prevent pain from re-occuring. The tools used are simplistic in nature but require some practice and motivation to implement the techniques into your lifestyle and make the changes necessary to help you get out of pain. The tools include; relaxation techniques, postural alignment work (functional movement), strengthening and stabilizing weak muscles and joints, and then stretching and releasing overly tight muscles. This series will use these 4 techniques to first explore the lower body mechanics in the feet, ankle, knees and pelvis. The second workshop will include the back, shoulders and neck. The principles are the same and they will build from one workshop to the next. As well, we’ll explore holistically connecting the upper and lower body by looking at upper and lower cross syndrome and learning how the body is interconnected, meaning that if you feel pain in the back, there could be something happening at the pelvis that may be aggravating the back.
**For everyone, no previous yoga experience necessary
