Gentle Yoga for Strength & Mobility

This yoga series focuses on gently strengthening the body while building solid foundation of stability & functional mobility. Each week we will move through therapeutic poses to reduce stress and to increase flexibility & muscle tone. The sequence, a combination of subtle movements & breathwork, will help you to release deeply held tension from the back, neck, shoulders and hips, and aid you in increasing all-over strength and range of motion. You will leave this course with knowledge of movements & breathing techniques to support a healthy body & mind! A great class for those who enjoy a slower pace, beginners, or those with health concerns or injuries. No previous yoga experience necessary!

Facilitated by Absolute's Sarah Caspick (Therapeutic Yoga Practitioner).

Wednesdays, January 22nd - February 26th, 2020.  10:45am-12:15pm (75 mins)​

$100/6 week session (pre-registration required)

Yoga to Rest & Destress

Are you tired? Stressed out? This 75-minute practice offers you the chance to stop & slow down, and to truly unwind from the busy-ness of life. Each class will begin with gentle therapeutic postures & breathing exercises aimed at calming the mind, and opening and releasing tight muscles, fascia and tendons. Next, there will be a sweet transition into fully supported restorative postures using lots of props in order to soothe your nervous system. The class will close with a short yoga nidra practice - a restful meditation that promotes relaxation & healthy sleep. This series is ideal for anyone experiencing stress and/or difficulty sleeping. No previous Yoga experience is required. All ages and abilities are welcome!

What is Therapeutic Yoga?

Complimentary Information Session

  • Have you seen yoga offered here at the clinic but you’re unsure of what it’s all about or how it can benefit you?

  • Are you recovering from an injury or currently living with a physical or mental health condition that you are hoping to manage and/or rehabilitate?

  • Have you been interested in the practice of yoga and meditation but don’t know how to start?  Are you looking to build strength, improve mobility, and/or reduce stress in a safe & healthy way?

 

I'm Sarah, a 500hr-trained Advanced Teacher of Therapeutic Yoga. If you answered yes to any of the above questions or are just curious about what yoga can do for you, I invite you to join me for a complimentary evening information session! I will discuss the many benefits of yoga for your mind and body, bust common yoga myths & misconceptions (you DON’T need to be flexible!), and lead you through a short, gentle, demonstrative movement practice to close the evening (if you’d like to participate, dress comfortably!). I look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have!
