About the Event
Whether you are an athlete, sit at a desk, drive for long periods of time, or spend too much time on your phone, you are bound to experience pain in your back, neck or shoulders at some point. This can also develop into a chronic condition. Repetitive actions out of our natural alignment can create intense pain in these areas of your body and other parts as well. Yoga has always been a therapeutic practice to help us recognize these patterns and shift to more optimal alignment while building healthy patterns and balance of strength and flexibility.
In this workshop, you will learn to enhance your breath and alignment to shift and recognize patterns of pain. Learn the yoga poses that help to strengthen and release tight fascia and muscles in the back, neck and shoulders and help to create more core strength. Therapeutics will be introduced as “yoga to the rescue” tools.
