Skillful Sitting

If you spend hours sitting, you’re not alone. Many of us put in long days at a desk,
on the computer, or playing a musical instrument. We often pay the price with back,
shoulder, arm and neck pain.

In this workshop, you will:
• identify habitual patterns in sitting
• explore sources of discomfort and ways to avoid them
• learn to use your pelvis more effectively to prolong comfort while seated
• discover ways to feel more energized and effective in a chair
• address practical ergonomics specific to your lifestyle

Balance is your most critical sense for survival, it allows you to move safely and effortlessly. Do you notice a minor insecurity when walking in the dark or on uneven ground? increased tripping or worse, a fear of falling?

In this workshop you will:
• improve your dynamic stability
• discover your body's intelligence to find better balance
• learn tools to make you feel safe again
• awaken your inherent ability to be alert and focused

Pelvic power for women

It’s easy to take sitting, walking or running for granted until something goes awry. The pelvis plays a key role in organizing the body and helping to generate the power for most every day activities.

Because of its central position a small shift in the pelvis can have major effects in the rest of the body: it can cause not only headaches but a twist in the neck, a pain in the knee, incontinence,  pelvic or abdominal pain, stiff hips and poor balance.

In this workshop you will:

• identify habitual movement patterns that contribute to your challenges
• explore sources of discomfort and ways to overcome them
• learn to use your pelvis more effectively to prolong comfort for any activity
• improve coordination and ease tension in your lower back and hip joints
• build the foundation to a more in-depth pelvic floor workshop


Be your own best Valentine: The practice of self-love

Valentine's Day is all about love for others, but what about the love we show ourselves (or don't) each day?
Are you flexible and kind to yourself, or are you prone to self-judgment, punishing yourself for every mistake you make? If so, you're not alone.

Many of us judge ourselves too harshly, often paying the price through isolation, self-doubt, and pain. It's time to put YOU back on your own sweetheart list. 

Using movement in this workshop, you'll:

• learn how to relate to yourself with more kindness
• explore ways to move from insecurity to self care
• build capacity to be more accepting and confident
• gain tools to boost your emotional health and well-being
• strengthen your relationships with others by improving your connection with yourself
