A 90 minute Restorative Class Infused with Thai Yoga Massage Assists.

Thai yoga massage is a unique healing system where the practicioner guides the client through yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body's energy lines.  Together these actions result in a full body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically.  As this workshop is limited to 6 participants, each student will receive approximately 1 minute of hands on time during each restorative posture.

Saturday, September 23rd from 11am-4pm with Carmen Hutt - $90 plus HST

 

Pelvic Floor Yoga can assist to restore the vitality of a very important region in our bodies.  By creating a better sense of awareness through the use of breath, subtle movements, and stretching we can work to to soften the area, while strengthening the pelvic floor and the surrounding muscles that assist to stabilize the pelvis. 

During the workshop we will review basic anatomy of the pelvis and its three layers of pelvic floor musculature. We will discuss how the breath and ‘core’ contribute to the health of the pelvic floor, and how we can work with yoga asana to soften, stretch, and mindfully strengthen the area. 

This workshop is designed for any woman looking to gain more insight, or wishing to create a more mindful relationship with their pelvis. Whether you have experienced child birth, pregnancy, menopause, surgical intervention, pelvic pain, or peeing when ‘sneezing’, this workshop will give you more knowledge in a supportive environment.
