Upcoming Workshops 

Yoga for Anxiety - Online in real time
Room to Breathe Chicago
Six week series 
Tuesdays, April 21st - May 26th
6p-7:30pm
$180

Anxiety is an unique and individual experience based on how we perceive and react to stress or any given situation.  In this six week series, learn simple practices and routines to assist in managing your anxiety.  Through breathwork, meditation, journaling, yoga nidra, and slow movement you will be guided through a weekly practice that you can take home with you.

Often we are called to manage our anxiety in an instant, in a public space, where it may be necessary to use breathwork or simple movement in a very discreet way.  Sometimes the most useful tools are the ones we need to use quickly, where you may want to keep these practices to yourself and personal to you.  These ideas and routines will be discussed and approached.  

The intention of this series, is to teach you a number of modalities and slow movement sequences to ease the mind and body, but also to leave you with the simple tools to apply these practices throughout your day, potentially everyday, in the most challenging moments, when needed the most.

Our skeletal system is the foundation for every move and posture we make. Repetitive movements and prolonged postures such as sitting can cause certain areas to become compressed, limiting the flow of nutrients to bones, muscles, and tendons. Certain health conditions can also lead to joint pain, fatigue, or degeneration. 

The practice of yoga enhances the circulation of vital nutrients and synovial fluid to bones and joints, reversing the effects of compression and pain. Through body awareness, healthy alignment, balanced movement, and strength, yoga promotes healthy aging by decreasing wear and tear on our bodies.

 

"Healthy Joints” will focus on the major joints of the body - from the shoulders and wrists, to the ankles and toes. Participants will learn somatic movements and the Joint Freeing Series by Mukunda Stiles to decompress and lubricate our weight bearing joints. Body awareness techniques in various yoga postures will be used to establish balanced alignment and muscle engagement for the continued health of our bones and joints. 

 

This workshop is for anyone who experiences: 

            Joint Pain or Fatigue

            Arthritis, or conditions causing joint pain 

            Desk Workers

            Athletes, or those who experience repetitive movements
