Yoga for the “Office” Workshop with Karen Poppele
Saturday, September 16        1-3 p.m.

Good posture is critical to balance and health. Whether your job involves sitting for extended periods of time at a desk working at a computer or behind the wheel of a vehicle, poor posture development can lead to headaches, neck and shoulder pain, weakened muscles and muscle fatigue, back pain, and other conditions, which, left unaddressed, can become permanent.
This workshop is designed to create an awareness of proper neck and sitting posture and offer yoga, ergonomics, and other techniques as tools to help correct poor postural habits. We’ll explore

• Potential health consequences of extended sitting, poor sitting posture, and forward head posture (FHP)
• Computer, desk, and driving ergonomics
• Yoga poses that can be done seated at the desk and on the mat to help undo the effects of extended sitting and/or computer work

A  45-minute yin (stretch) practice to counteract “computer neck” will complete the workshop. You will leave with an awareness of and tools to maintain proper posture in and outside the office environment. Open to all levels. Investment, $25; early bird investment by September 9, $20.

Karen Poppele, E-RYT 200, YACEP, brings to her classes a love of alignment along with a sense of play and exploration and a desire to make yoga truly accessible to all, encouraging progression at one’s individual pace and level to attain the increased physical, mental, and spiritual well-being a practice can offer.

Fridays 10:30am-11:30am…YogaFaith with Lynda Lea Goodall


Please read Lynda’s intention for her offering…YogaFaith. Lynda trained in Washington state.
“My heart is to share Christ and yoga with people. We are meant to worship with our whole being and to glorify the Lord with our temples. YogaFaith is the yoking together or uniting yoga, meditating on the word of God and worshiping through body movement. I have been teaching at some churches who graciously opened their hearts and doors to let me teach faith based yoga classes. As I branch out now into a studio setting I invite you to come practice and learn with me so together we can better seek the Lord with our whole selves.”

Restorative/Yoga Nidra with Michelle & Mark
Saturday, August 12   3-4:30pm
Give yourself the gift of letting go with Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra combined into one class. Michelle will use props to facilitate deep relaxation with a handful of restful postures. Mark will guide you through a practice designed to bring forth a deep sense of peace and renewal where your only requirement is to let go to the sounds of music and voice. Both practices will allow the body to heal and replenish itself by stimulating the immune and endocrine systems, lowering the heart rate and blood pressure, and triggering the parasympathetic nervous system, which calms and restores the body. By doing less instead of more, allow your inner healing capacity to activate and uncover the deepest core of yourself, the essential wisdom within. ALL ARE WELCOME!
