Yin Yoga and Myofascial Release Workshop

Monday, October 17 - Online via Zoom - 6:45 - 8:00 PM Mountain Time

As a triathlete, yin yoga quickly became my go-to practice for helping my body recover from tough workouts, and to improve my flexibility and range of motion. I love yin for many reasons, including its accessibility for those who have never practiced yoga. 

 

If you're not familiar with yin, it's a yoga practice that involves holding stretches on the floor for three to five minutes. While yin yoga calms and balances the mind and body, and reduces stress and anxiety, our primary focus in this workshop will be to increase circulation, improve flexibility, release fascia and improve joint mobility. 

This workshop is great for athletes, but all are welcome! As we move through yin postures, I will direct you in the use of tools for deeper myofascial release. You may be wondering, "what is myofascial release?" It's an effective technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into restricted connective tissue to relieve pain and restore motion. 

 

I will demonstrate the use of RAD tools, however, you can use foam rollers, rolling pins, tennis balls and/or lacrosse balls if you choose not to purchase RAD tools. Check out all that RAD has to offer here. My personal favorites are the helix and the RAD roller.

 

Register for $25, or sign up for all three workshops for $60.

Realign to Relieve Neck and Back Pain Workshop

Monday, November 14 - Online via Zoom - 6:45 - 8:00 PM Mountain Time

 

Forward head posture and low-back pain are two of the most common challenges of today’s professional from working on a computer, texting, sitting and driving. Join us for a 75-minute workshop focused on bringing the body back into proper alignment. 

 

Our time together will include multiple yoga formats, so come dressed ready for movement. Leave with more energy, and alleviated neck, shoulder and back pain.

Register for $25, or sign up for all three workshops for $60.

Self Awakening Yoga (SAY) and Journaling Workshop

Monday, December 12 - Online via Zoom - 6:45 - 8:00 PM Mountain Time

To help you cope with any challenges you've been facing, I'm offering one of Firefly's most popular workshops online again.

 

Join me as I guide you through a Self-Awakening Yoga (SAY) practice to connect with your body, followed by meditation and journaling to reflect on your year and set intentions for 2023. SAY is an inquiry-based style of yoga involving slow, intentional movements, which is suitable for all levels, and intended to get you more in tune with your body. 

 

We'll practice letting go, and then opening the heart to enable you to move forward liberated to let your light shine. We'll join in mediation and journaling to reflect on learnings from the past twelve months, and to outline what you want to invite in next.

 

Register for $25, or sign up for all three workshops for $60.
