The workshop will include:

  • A short series of movements inspired by qigong to bring awareness to the physical body
  • A guided meditation with focus on the breath to cultivate concentration and compassion and to begin to see, with precision, our distractions and addictive thought patterns

trap releaseYOGA FOR NECK & SHOULDER TENSION
with Katie Louvat, RYT500

Sunday, August 19, 4 – 6 pm
Workshop Fee: $35
Space is limited. Preregister to reserve your spot.  

Join Katie for a restorative and informative afternoon practice designed to unravel stiffness and tension in the neck and shoulders and increase postural awareness. Neck and shoulder tension is widespread in our culture and can be attributed to a number of factors including poor postural habits, long hours spent in front of computers or curled over devices, and the general stress of daily life. In this workshop, participants will learn a simple combination of yoga postures and myofascial release techniques that—when performed regularly and coupled with healthy postural habits—can bring relief and prevent future discomfort.

diane dunnYoga for Arthritis with Diane Dunn
Mondays/Wednesdays, 10:30 – 11:30 am, Sept. 24 – Nov. 19
To reserve your spot: Phone/text (775) 870-2092 or email: dunndiane@icould.com

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.
