Yoga for People Who Work at Desks
Starting at $350
Unwreck your neck with therapeutic yoga to help counter the effects of sitting all day. The body was made to move; it tends to cry out for help when we do too much of one thing. In particular, sitting all day can take a serious toll, but there are things you can do to help counteract the aches and pains. This class will take you through some stretching, strengthening, and breathing exercises to break up your day, and refresh the body and brain.
How it works
What is restorative yoga? It is a passive practice that involves laying on the floor in various positions, often supported by props like pillows and blankets, with the goal of stress/tension reduction, and relaxation.
What do you need? A little big of floor or wall space will serve you well as we take time to decompress. Any and all levels of yoga experience are welcome, beginners and experts will walk away with tips and techniques they can replicate to feel good long after this experience is over.
What to expect? You can expect to think and move outside the box, try new things, or try old things in a new way. My sequencing is both creative and smart, rooted in biomechanics, with a mixture of precision and exploration.
Participants will benefit from access to the following props: blankets, pillows, a few thick books or yoga blocks
Participants will receive a short video as a take away after the session to refer back to and incorporate into your day.
No lead time is required to book
I have always connected to movement as a means for expression, discipline, joy, and mental/emotional regulation. My formal movement journey began with classical ballet in Georgia, segued into yoga in NYC (2004), and I began teaching in 2010. I love to learn, therefore many traditions influence my teaching: intelligent vinyasa, Iyengar, Physiyoga (the merging of physical therapy techniques and yoga), and meditation.
Depending on the class style, you can expect to think and move outside the box, try new things, or try old things in a new way. My sequencing is both creative and smart, rooted in biomechanics, with a mixture of precision and exploration. I also have a deep appreciation for mindfulness practices like restorative yoga and sound baths. I lead sound meditations using singing bowls, gongs, and chimes with the goal of diving into the subtlety of listening. There is a time to move big and a time to get quiet; my practice over the years has been to listen to which one will bring balance to daily life.
