Neck Power!

Keep a block and blanket nearby for this class. Just like back pain, problems in the neck affect many people. In this class you will practise some poses to relieve stress and fatigue and strengthen the areas in the upper back and neck to help you regain good posture. Once you know the poses, you can do them separately as needed as well. No yoga experience needed. With reclined postures and basic twist.

A class that focuses on twists. Twists loosen up the muscles around the spine and neck. On a more spiritual level they can help us let go of old beliefs we are ready to shed. You will finish feeling lighter and with more energy.

Releasing stress from the head, neck and shoulders

Releasing stress from the head, neck and shoulders

A specific sequence of poses designed to open the myriad of muscles that make up the shoulder joint. Moving the arms in many directions while seated or lying down to create more flexibility and openness. It is a 'relaxing practice' with everything on the ground, but can be 'intense' while creating flexiblity where we often hold stress. If the handstand at the end of the practice is not happening for you now, go to the wall and practice “down dog at the wall.” While facing the wall, bring your palms to the wall at the level of your hips. Walk backwards until your spine / torso are parallel to the floor and press the wall away to great the extension action. It is the same action as handstand without the extra challenge of being upside down! This class works on Vishuddha (Throat) chakra

Yoga Therapy: neck alignment, the sternocleidomastoid

Because of misalignment where the head is in a forward position in relation to the upper body, the muscles of the upper back get strained in a long position and the muscles in the front of the neck get weak and start to slack. In this class you will learn how to align these muscles and bring more harmony to your body. Balance in the body will lead to an increased ability for breathing and being able to relax more easily. This class is a flowing, dynamic class with moments of explanation. Sukhasana, Cat-Cow, Dandasana, Tadasana, Janu Sirshasana, Bharadvajasana
