Do you have stiffness in the hip or pelvic regions? Do you have lower back tension after sitting for long periods?

In this workshop, we will explore how stiffness in the hips affects posture, breath and the vitality of the internal organs. We will methodically work through poses to provide more freedom in the hips while exploring the relationship our movement has to tension in the lower back. All levels are welcome.

About the Instructor: Suzanne Dong has 20+ years experience studying with the Iyengar family in Pune, Manouso Manos, Ramanand Patel and Kofi Busia. Her expertise is neck, shoulders and back as she used yoga to help with her own ailments. Her love of yoga is infectious.

SACRED SOUND IMMERSION
with Timothy Glen and Amar Atma Kaur

Sunday, September 23, 3:00 to 4:30 pm
Cost: $25 at the door.

A Portion of the Proceeds will be donated to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.

The Ancients of many traditions have taught us that through the sound current we are able to uplift our personal vibration and in doing so, attract people and circumstances that resonate with a higher vibratory energetic field.

Tim Glenn and Amar Atma Kaur will guide you into a transcendent experience in which you will bypass your thoughts and move directly into your heart center.

Bring a blanket and cushion, a water bottle and anything you might need to relax deeply into the healing sounds of crystal bowls, planetary gong and celestial voices.

with Diane Dunn

Mondays/Wednesdays, 10:30 – 11:30 am
Sept. 24 – Nov. 19
Cost: $180.

This 8-week series is for people living with arthritis or similar symptoms of pain and stiffness. It draws from a variety of styles to best address the specific needs of people with arthritis. Dr. Steffany Moonaz, PHD, a leading expert on yoga for arthritis, designed this program while working with researchers and rheumatologists. The program requires you to listen to your body and respond to its needs, which can vary from day to day. It is not just a modification of a yoga class with props; it also combines information about diet, meditation and physical activity to support students with the healing aspects and full benefits of a complete yoga practice. Another goal of this program is to help students move past the point of joint discomfort to get the benefit of a pose and begin to create their own home practice. The course comes with a manual and meets twice a week and has home activities as well as class time.

About the Instructor: Diane Dunn, RYT200 is a licensed Yoga for Arthritis teacher. It was the information and experience that she got from her own work with yoga and therapy after a knee replacement and her course with Dr. Moonaz that motivated her to share this information with the community.
