Yoga Therapy Workshops

Intro to Yoga Therapy: Neck and Shoulder Relief

Our neck and shoulders are constantly being thrown out of balance due to
the demands of our computer driven life and work. This workshop is
recommended for students interested in creating more balance in their
bodies and specifically seeking relief in the upper spine and shoulders.
This workshop will be led by LizziDee Levin, certified yoga therapist and
is based in the therapeutic, alignment focused Iyengar Method. In it, we
will identify postural habits and muscular imbalances that can either cause
or aggravate existing injuries and conditions. Participants will learn how
to perform yoga postures that correct posture and address common
imbalances, reducing pain and preventing future injury. Individuals with
injuries, arthritis, or other limitations as well as those just
experiencing occassional discomfort, will benefit from this practice. No
prior yoga experience required. This workshop will incorporate the Great
Yoga Wall system as well as dowel rods. Dowels will be available to borrow
or purchase ($10) or bring your own **(1.5 in. diameter, 3-4 ft long) **to
continue working with at home.
