upcoming workshops

Spine Support
March 18, 10-12pm Private Studio, Westfield, NJ

I'm looking forward to offering the third installment in my private workshop series Sunday, March 18. This month we'll be focusing on all things back related-spine health, strength, mobility and self care techniques. We'll uncover some blind spots and reasons why you may experience chronic or nagging pain as well as practice a variety of strengthening exercises to help you gain more confidence in your movement. You'll learn how movement at the hips and shoulders relates to movement of the spine and leave with some simple home practice techniques to begin creating lasting change. 

 

 

Love Your Low Back
April 15, 3-4:30pm, South Street Yoga & Nutrition, Morristown NJ

Whether you suffer from chronic low back pain or are hoping to avoid pain in the future, this workshop is for you. We'll explore the dynamic of the lumbar spine and how it connects down the kinetic chain through the hips, legs and feet, as well as up the kinetic chain through the thoracic spine, shoulders and neck. Through body awareness exercises, lots of fun exploratory movement and yoga pose variations, you'll develop a better understanding of how strengths and weaknesses along that chain can impact mobility of the lumbar spine.  Walk away with lots of home practice tips and tricks to reduce pain, get stronger, more mobile and help you reclaim your movement!

Core Connection
Saturday, June 9, 1-3pm, Ride + Reflect, Morristown NJ

The core is so much more than just the belly-it includes all of the muscles that mobilize and stabilize your spine, control your breathing and protect your organs. Learn why having a strong core isn't about having a flat stomach (and why a flat stomach may not even be ideal!) but IS about how well you can coordinate and activate the muscles of your trunk to support your spine and optimize your breathing for greater well-being. We'll use a mix of yoga asana, abdominal self-massage, breathing exercises and dynamic strength work to explore core strength, mobility and motor control. You'll leave with practical tools to continue developing greater strength, awareness and connection to the role of your core in your movement practice and day to day life.
