Are you experiencing vaginal dryness? Or pain with intercourse? Have you been told you have vaginal atrophy due to menopause? Are you frustrated because you believe your sex life is over?

Well, it doesn’t have to be! Come learn easy, non-pharmaceutical, non-hormonal, low cost techniques that you can do at home to help alleviate vaginal dryness, atrophy, thinning of vaginal skin and/or painful intercourse.

This class is appropriate for any woman who is experiencing discomfort during intercourse, pelvic exams or daily activities due to vaginal dryness and atrophy as well as women who are experiencing vaginal changes due to perimenopause, menopause, cancer treatments, hysterectomy or medications.

This class will include information on specific instructions for self-treatments that can be done at home as well as yoga postures and meditation that focus on the pelvic region. Movement and breath will draw awareness to the pelvic floor, and facilitate both the full relaxation and activation of pelvic floor muscles. A short guided meditation will reconnect awareness to the feminine energy held within the pelvis.

Spots are limited, and registration is required. **We suggest wearing comfortable clothing for a gentle yoga class, stretching and body awareness at the end of the class. This class is located one flight of stairs up, on the second floor of our clinic.

Yoga for Immune Support
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.

Healthy Joints, Strong Spine!
Dancing Feet Yoga

New Buffalo, MI

Healthy Joints             Saturday, April 25th, 2-4pm    $35

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
