POSTURE REBUILD

LIVE: Thursday, March 25, 2021, 10:30 am EST
*included in the 4 class module

Our pandemic lifestyle - excess time spent homebound, hunched over our screens, sitting on our couches and accumulating stress and difficult emotions, and less time moving and challenging our bodies with exercise, movement and other activities - has played itself out along our posture, whether we realize it or not.  Chances are over the past year, you have experienced increased headaches, neck tension, shoulder and upper back stiffness, lack of focus and confusion, fatigue, and feelings of lopsidedness - physical, emotional, or both! While this class is not a cure-all for any of those things, the simple alignment meditation I teach you along with learning gentle movements you can do at any time during your day, will help you be able to correct and realign more often as you become increasingly aware of when you fall into poor posture. The techniques explored will help you can choose posture more upright, efficient and strong, more often. Props used will include: a folding chair, 2 tennis balls, a blanket or thicker beach towel.
