- Upcoming Therapeutic Yoga Classes at The Studio
Yoga is a beautiful way to guide the body towards its optimal health. Imbalances form over years of repeated movements wreaking havoc on our bodies. Work, play, sleep, and a busy lifestyle can lead to neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, tight hamstrings and more. Many of us carry and live with this stress everyday.
Want release? Come to your mat and enjoy 2 hours of attention to your ‘stuck’ spot and learn how yoga heals. You’ll be guided through a workshop of poses that will bring a sense of calm to an otherwise agitated area of the body. Leave with practical tools to move towards more freedom of movement.
Offered by rotating instructors who specialize in specific areas of the body.
Therapeutic Yoga Classes rotate between our Downtown and West side locations. Please be sure to double check the location of each class when registering.
Members – $25 early bird rate, $35 thereafter

Upcoming Therapeutic Yoga Classes:
Sunday, January 24th, 2016 2:15-4:15pm DOWNTOWN:
Yoga for Anxiety with Sarah Higgins
Many people suffer from the painful affects of anxiety. Spending precious energy feeling nervous, uncertain, restless, doubtful or uneasy creates a challenging situation in which it is difficult to fully trust in ourselves and the world around us. In this workshop we will incorporate breathing techniques, gentle yoga poses and journal writing as practical tools which serve to activate the parasympathetic wing of our nervous system. We will also treat ourselves to the potent practice of Yoga Nidra, otherwise known as Yogic Sleep.
This two-hour Therapeutics class is a safe space to learn yogic techniques which, with continued practice, will re-build confidence, contentment and peacefulness. This class is suitable for students of all abilities who are willing to get to know themselves at a deeper, more meaningful level.
Early bird deadline for Yoga for Anxiety is January 10th.Sign up for Yoga for Anxiety with Sarah

Past Therapeutics Classes at The Studio:
Sunday, October 25th, 2015 2:15-4:15pm DOWNTOWN:
Yoga for a Healthy Back with Ken Kloes
Neck, Shoulder and back pain have become an epidemic in our culture. This therapeutic series will give you tools to improve your posture, avoid injury and release patterns of stress and tension. A healthy back is dependent upon a strong core and a balance of strength and suppleness in the hips and shoulders.
The spine is at the center of your being; by creating a healthy flow of vitality along this axis you will create physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. We will explore proper alignment of common postures and transitions as well as therapeutic approaches to cultivating greater health for the spine.
This practical and in-depth two hour class will specifically address how to practice yoga with low back pain and sciatica and how to use your practice to heal and prevent recurrences.
Sunday, November 22nd, 2015 2:15-4:15pm at WEST:
Yoga for Shoulders, Elbows and Wrists with Meg Abene Newlin
Discomfort in the body can hold us back, not just in the poses but also in our ability to take meaningful breaths that contribute to the quality of our attention and presence. This 2-hour Therapeutics Class is an opportunity to gain some clarity around how you are moving in your upper body and increase your experience of both freedom and stability.
We will work on proper alignment in the upper back and shoulders that will promote ease and spaciousness. We will take a close look at the structure and optimal alignment of the arms in a variety of different positions. This work is applicable to folks suffering from pain or ‘stickiness’ in the rotators and scapula as well as pain in the elbows and wrists. It is often a subtle misalignment in the shoulders that can wreak havoc lower down the arms…extending to elbows and wrists. We will work slowly and with detail so that everyone goes home with greater clarity regarding these upper body actions.
This class is suitable for students of all abilities.
