Come! Take a Load Off
Friday hits and we are carrying the weeks weight. Instead of plopping down in front of the TV on the couch, come plop down in front of me on your yoga mat, just for an hour!
You will relax onto your mat, I’ll guide you as you recline back to open the chest and front body to begin melting the stress away. We also gently stretch the back of the body, legs to head to begin loosening tight or restricted muscles in the hamstrings, glutes, low back working our way up to a seated position. In a choice of easy seated positions, customizable to your body, I’ll guide you through setting an intention for your practice, then begin intentional breathing with gentle movements of the arms, shoulders, neck and head. Making the movements appropriate to your body’s needs, as we flow through to kneeling and standing positions to elongate the front and back body for a complete stretch.
Your body will thank you ALL weekend!
My clients always say they feel so much better at the end of class than when they walked in, they sleep so well for a refreshed weekends start and that they are really seeing their flexibility and strength build, especially in their upper body with greater range of motion in the neck and shoulders.
Please bring your yoga mat and filled water bottle. We have yoga blocks, blankets and straps to borrow, but if you have your own please feel free to bring them, as we will use all props. Long strap dog leashes (6’+) also work great as yoga strap!
I saw how immensely beneficial this yoga sequence is for shoulder and neck health while I was in Massage Therapy School. With multiple injuries from sports, 5 years in the Army, and a “bum” right shoulder, 2 shakey knees and crooked spine as a result of it all, I needed a stretch that opened my tight, tense upper back, neck and chest to start elongating instead of everything compressed.
I incorporated this sequence every other day since starting MT school in November 2022 and finally after 5+ years trying to achieve “Cow Face Arms”, I did it in May 2023!!! And without a strap to pull my “bum” right arm into place. 40 years old and I finally achieved that pose! My shoulder cuff muscles, upper back and arms are so much stronger and allow me to offer deep tissues massages without repetitive injuries that haunted my past. Dedication to your practice will open up doors, shoulders and your mind to endless possibilities. I’m living proof and would love to share my practice with you!
