I am a devoted student and teacher of hatha yoga. I first discovered yoga as an undergrad and health-conscious nutrition student. I quickly found that yoga complemented my lifestyle by allowing me to slow down, discover new strength and stability, and bring my body, mind and spirit into balance. Upon completing my first teacher training in 2007 to support my own practice, it opened my eyes to the depth and breadth of what we call yoga. In recent years I have focused my studies on yoga philosophy and therapeutic applications including functional movement and breathing, mindfulness and mental wellness. Now with more than 1000 hours of training, I offer my students a practice that meets them where they are and encourages them to explore with compassionate curiosity. I enjoy a light-hearted approach, while providing a safe environment for my students’ own self-discovery. I am registered with Yoga Alliance (eRYT 500) and continue to study yoga therapy.
THE ESSENTIAL LOW BACK PROGRAM
Back pain is the number one cause of lost work days in the U.S. contributing to more disability than any other health problem. Psychological distress and depression often accompany chronic back pain. For the majority of people with low back pain, the specific cause is unclear. The Essential Low Back Program can help!
Tuesdays 9:30 – 11:00 AM
August 27 - October 1
205 NW Franklin Ave
This 6-week program, developed by renowned yoga therapist Robin Rothenberg, is based on her work with the two largest studies funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) utilizing yoga for the treatment of lower back pain. Of the study participants, 78% experienced a significant reduction in pain levels. The Essential Low Back Program uses a gentle form of yoga with a strong focus on adaptation, breath development and specific poses to alleviate back pain and prevent its recurrence. ALL BODIES AND ABILITIES ARE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED! Adaptations will be offered, including those that can be done in a chair. The series includes 6 classes, each 90 minutes, plus the book and CD for students to practice at home.
