Yoga4Cancer (y4c) is a research based, specialized yoga methodology addressing the specific physical and emotional needs left by cancer and its treatments. Because all yoga is not the same, finding the right yoga teacher is the best first step. This class is taught by a certified y4c teacher with knowledge and awareness of the special needs of cancer patients and survivors. Caregivers are also welcome.
Class cost is $5 cash.
Our fast-paced Western culture is not just affecting the stress levels and health of adults, but our children are also feeling the effects. Specifically in the age of social media. This four week session will offer kids a time and space in their week when they can disconnect from technology, the pressures of sports and activities, and reconnect with themselves and others in a safe and supported environment. Students will learn yoga fundamentals as well as mindfulness techniques. These skills are empowering and can enable kids to RESPOND to stress, rather than react.
The session is taught by Kate Olson, long time yoga teacher, mindfulness facilitator and mother of two teens. Kate has taught both yoga and mindfulness in local school districts.
Mondays 2:30 - 3:30 July 8th - 29th
Many students find their way to yoga to reduce stress. Our busy lives create an imbalance which places emphasis on productivity and action and leaves little time for renewal and self-care. This imbalance can result in anxiety, stress, and even illness. Vigorous exercise, including a vinyasa or flow yoga practice, is essential to our health and well being, but to truly find balance, we also need to find time for deep relaxation.
In this three hour workshop we will discuss the effects of stress on the body and the role of the nervous system on our health and well being. We will look at common restorative poses and the use of props to support our students or ourselves in them. This includes supporting students with physical limitations or illness and how to know when an adjustment or assist is appropriate. We will talk about the benefits of specific restorative poses and sequencing them for a well rounded restorative practice or class. We will also discuss how to integrate restorative poses into our current classes. We will end with a restorative practice.
This workshop is appropriate for yoga teachers, students of yoga teacher trainings, and anyone interested in learning more about restorative yoga.
$50 in advance, $60 after July 13th
