Experience transformative classes designed to enhance your mental & physical well-being with carefully curated classes.
The first class, your free preview, will dive into a short yet powerful practice targeting the Sacroiliac Joint. Using two tennis balls, you will be guided through a myofascial release technique that relieves the SI joint, sacrum, & lower back. This practice is designed to alleviate joint pain & tightness, offering accessible & effective pain relief.
The second class is a full one-hour session dedicated to opening the shoulders. Through a combination of Yin yoga poses & myofascial techniques, you will release tension, reduce pain, & increase mobility & fluidity in your shoulder joint. In today's digital age, where we often find ourselves hunched over computers & phones, addressing the emotional stress & tightness that accumulates in the upper back area is crucial. This class aims to provide much-needed relief & restore balance to the shoulder girdle, which plays a vital role in our posture & breathing patterns.
The third class will focus on the feet—a highly beneficial area. Through yoga & myofascial release techniques, you will improve hamstring flexibility, alleviate sore feet, enhance posture, & achieve overall alignment throughout the body. By tapping into the fascia connections within our feet, we can unlock deeper healing & promote the optimal functioning of our organs.
The fourth class is a full hour of Yin Yoga, accompanied by a myofascial release technique targeting the outer hip/IT band area. This practice is designed to release tension, ease spasms, & relieve discomfort. Regularly practicing this class will keep your IT band supple and mobile, contributing to your overall well-being.
