Upcoming Workshops

Two dates - Room to Breathe Chicago and WholeHealth Chicago
Room to Breathe Chicago
25 E. Washington
Thursday, April 9th, 5:30-7:30pm
$40 (includes take home materials)

Our immune system is an incredible, multifaceted network that operates from the layer of our skin, to the marrow in our bones. Many things affect our immunity, and certain yoga practices are immensely beneficial for strengthening it.

This two hour workshop will address lymphatic drainage, congestion clearing, and the relaxation response. Sleep is the most powerful antioxidant that we have, and stress can be a major factor in recovering from illness.

Movements and postures will gently massage, compress, and release areas surrounding lymph nodes, aiding in the detoxification of dead tissues and cells. Specific breathing techniques will clear major areas of congestion and mucus in the chest, throat, and nasal passages. Finally, restorative yoga and guided relaxation will conclude the workshop, supporting the health and well-being of your whole body.

This workshop is for all levels and capabilities. Take home materials are included for continual practice.

Want to learn how to enhance and protect your immune system? Join us for our Immune Boost workshop!

Our immune system is a multifaceted network of communication and defense. It works throughout our whole body - from the layers of our skin, to the marrow in our bones. Many things affect the strength of our immunity, and our immunity affects many bodily functions in return, including our energy, sleep, and mood.

This two hour workshop will address different techniques to support the crucial immune system; using Naturopathic medicine by Dr. Caley Scott, and Yoga Therapy from Renee Zambo.

Dr. Scott will teach you about herbs that support your immune system to help fight infection and strengthen your vitality. You will be able to try each of the herbs in tincture, combine herbs in a formula of your choosing, and go home with your very own customized blend.

Renee Zambo will teach very gentle movements and restorative yoga postures surrounding lymph nodes that facilitate the drainage of accumulated waste from fighting infections. Breathing techniques to clear congestion in the chest, throat, and nasal passages will open the lungs to breathe better, and clear the head of stuffiness. Finally, sleep is the most powerful antioxidant that we have. Rest and relaxation will conclude the evening, reducing the load of stress that can be a major factor in illness recovery.

This workshop is for all levels and capabilities.

*Disclaimer: tinctures are herbs that are suspended in small amounts of alcohol, not recommended for children or patients with alcohol sensitivity.Take home materials are included for continued practice.

Please note: This workshop takes place on the second floor of our office; a short walk up one flight of stairs.

Healthy Joints, Strong Spine!

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

            Interest in healthy aging 

           

 

“Strong Spine” will highlight postures that alleviate back pain, decompress the spine, and increase back strength, flexibility, and resiliency. Participants will learn how to safely transition to the floor and back up, muscle strengthening for spinal support, and balancing exercises to move with confidence. 

 

This workshop is for anyone who experiences:

Back pain

Postural Imbalance 

Osteoporosis or osteopenia

Balance/coordination issues

Interest in maintaining a healthy spine
