Yoga & Body Rolling with Anita Sielecki

Friday, March 1 6:30 - 8:30pm $30

Body Rolling consists of a series of routines that use 6-to-10 inch diameter inflatable balls to stretch muscles, free restrictions in the body, realign, tone and increase blood flow, to promote healing. The routines are designed to not only lengthen muscles and fascia but also improve core strength, enhance posture, flexibility and balance.  They constitute a comprehensive approach that is very compatible and supportive of a yoga practice. When used on their own, they help free the body and relax the mind.

 

Yin Yoga & Thai Massage with Corinne McNally & Karin Lefsrud

Saturday, March 2 2:00 - 4:00pm $40

Yin Yoga and massage is a two hour workshop that is a combination of Yin Yoga and massage therapy. The way it works is that the massage therapist will work on each person in the workshop while they are in a yoga pose which allows them to get deeper into the pose. This combination releases the energy stored deep within the connective tissues of the spine, hips and shoulders and creates space for deeper breath and a quieter mind.

The workshop will be lead by Corinne, experienced Yoga Teacher, and Karin, a registered massage therapist.

Suitable for all levels of experience
