Workshop on Saturday, January 14, 2012

Our first Tranquility Yoga workshop focuses on the hands, wrists, arms, elbows, shoulders, neck, and upper back. (This was one of my New Year's resolutions - getting up my courage to teach about all I study about every day.)
I believe that we were originally designed for more of a movement based lifestyle anatomically; however, these days in our fast moving, modern society, we tend to sit or stand in a rounded forward position with our upper back and shoulders. Due to this compromised position with our body, we put way too much pressure on our hands and wrists and far less on our strong arms, shoulders, and upper back with good posture. Time pressure and work related stress create even more tension in our shoulders and neck.
The most frequent complaint that I hear in beginner's yoga is concerning the hands and wrists. The deep flexion of the hand in downward facing dog is tough for people who are only used to being on a computer or at a steering wheel or using dental hygenist tools or scissors in cutting hair. My goal is to teach how to strengthen the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, and upper back through yoga and help prevent degenerative disease or bring some relief to arthritis which has already set in.
We will start off in chairs to show how to find some relief in a workday situation with the upper body and then move to the yoga mat for poses that strengthen and lengthen. I hope you will consider joining us for our inaugural workshop! 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 14, 2012. Cost is very low at $30.00 for the whole afternoon. Hope to hear back from you with a reservation as space is limited.
