Yoga Therapy for Neck and Shoulders

Thursday, november 15  7:00pm - 9:00pm

Taught by UpLifter Meghan Foley

This workshop is designed for yogis who have suffered from neck or shoulder pain in the past, or are currently experiencing neck or shoulder pain, as well as for those who would like to learn preventative measures to maintain a healthy, strong upper body.

Looking through a yoga therapy lens, yogis will learn practical and applicable tools to strengthen deep core muscles, regain healthy breathing patterns, and align their bodies properly, with particular emphasis on how to safely and efficiently move through a chaturanga without any pain or strain.

We will assess posture, gait patterns, and habitual movements, in order to gain greater body awareness. Each yogi will leave with a customized plan he/she can enact at home and in future classes.

If you are currently experiencing chronic neck and shoulder pain, please get clearance from your health care provider to attend the workshop.

yoga aruveda

Intro to Ayurveda

sunday, december 2  1:30pm - 3:30pm

Taught by UpLifter Meghan Foley

Ayurveda translates from Sanskrit as the "science of life." We are each born with a certain constitution, or dosha, that determines our personalities, body types, food preferences, emotions, etc. In this workshop, you will learn how to determine your own personal dosha and which breath techniques, yoga styles, postures, foods, and mudras correspond with your particular makeup. The workshop is intended for students of all levels and will also include a short physical practice exploring each dosha and its properties.

You will leave the workshop with a better understanding of this ancient science that will add a new layer of depth to your yoga practice and help you find balance beyond the mat using special techniques designed for your particular dosha.

Qualifies for 2 hours of Yoga-Alliance approved Continuing Education Credits.

Cost: $40


resorative yoga aroma

Rest Up: Restorative Aroma Yoga

friday, december 7  7:00pm - 8:30pm

Taught by UpLifter Meghan Foley

We all live very full lives. Our minds are constantly racing, rarely giving our sympathetic (fight-or-flight) nervous system a break. To maintain our health long-term, it's absolutely essential to rest and restore. This powerful 90-minute class will calm your body and mind through a unique combination of Restorative Yoga and Aromatherapy.

Come ready to be supported. Physically by blankets, bolsters, straps & blocks. Mentally & spiritually by our UpLifter Meghan, who will help you find deep muscle relief and a relaxing mental state - somewhere between wakefulness and sleep. Exactly the kind of self-care a power yogi needs after a long week: lower your stress level, release long-held tension, and increase your energy levels for joyful weekend ahead.
