Leverage Matters : Ropes & Wheels Workshop

Exclusively at The Glowing Body Yoga Studio

Sunday, November 18th
9:00am – 12:00pm

Leverage can make a huge difference when practicing yoga postures. The ropes wall and yoga wheels provide a great source of leverage.

Lessen the learning curve with these great props – both tools will help you to get a grasp on what you should be doing in a yoga posture versus what you think you should be doing.

Each tool helps to address tension and muscular restriction in the back, chest, shoulders, abdomen, groins and hip flexors as well as a great way to develop core stability and spinal traction.

$40 per student
* Class is limited to 12 students.

oval_cabana_legs_up_wall_headonFor the Love of Self : Candlelight Restorative Workshop

Exclusively at The Glowing Body Yoga Studio

Sunday, August 26th
5:30pm – 7:30pm

Everyone needs some recovery time. Take a two-hour mini vacation with our seasonal restorative yoga workshop!

You do no work: simply sign up and come to the studio ready to sit and lie supported by cushions and blankets. No phones, no children who need your attention, no house or work projects, it is a break for YOU.

Restorative poses can help counteract the effects of ongoing stress. Various positions gently release tension from muscles, lower your heart rate, give your nervous system permission to stop constantly reacting, and slow down to breathe. Relax. Be.

This workshop offers complete instruction in gentle restorative poses, as well as:

  • Yoga poses for stress management and relaxation
  • Gentle poses that enhance the stillness of the mind
  • All props will be supplied

$30 per student
* Class is limited to 14 students. 8 spots remain!
