The Body Shop Series:
Hips & Shoulders

Wednesdays & Fridays 8/2 to 9/8 | 10:15-11:15 am
6 weeks – 2x per week – $360

Instructor: Michelle Wittwer

Foot, ankle and knee pain got you down or keeping you from doing what you love? We have the answer: The Body Shop Series!

Join Michelle for the first of her Body Shop Series: Feet, Ankles and Knees. In this small & focused (participation limited to 4 to meet individual goals) 6 week workshop that meets 2x per week, you will learn how to:

  • Mobilize and strengthen the feet and ankles to improve their strength, control, and movement.
  • Alleviate imbalances in those areas as well as your hips and low back.
  • Reinstate movement in areas lost due to injuries or poor movement habits.

In order to prevent long term or recurrent problems, we need to move all of our joints in all different ranges of movement. For example, 35% of people who suffer an ankle sprain go on to re-sprain it within one year, often because they have failed to regain full strength, control and mobility around the ankle.
A typical Body Shop class will start with:

  • gentle mobility warm up,
  • review of prior concepts,
  • lesson teaching a new concept and skill,
  • 20 minute strength workout
  • cool down and review.

This focused small group is limited to 4 participants so that you can get focused, individual attention. It is intended for people who suffer from pain or limited range of motion in those areas but still wants a workout to meet their needs and goals.

Limited to 4 participants

SomaYoga for Neck & Shoulders

Sunday, October 1 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Instructor: Renee Lindquist

In our culture we frequently text, drive and sit in front of computers resulting in lasting changes in our posture: head forward, shoulders shrugged and forward, upper back hunched.

If this posture sounds familiar and you experience chronic neck and shoulder pain, join Renee in this informative and posture changing workshop! Learn the source of your pain and how to unwind it. SomaYoga is a very gentle form of therapeutic yoga that uses muscular re-education to release chronic pain and tension. No prior yoga experience necessary.

Minimum of 5 needed to hold seminar, $40

Yoga for Better Sleep

Thursday, October 19 7:15 – 9:00 pm

Instructor: Renee Lindquist

A good nights sleep boosts our immune system, improves our mood, and sharpens our cognitive skills. And, improving our sleep habits can also improve our relationships.

If you’re not sleeping soundly, you’re not alone. 40% of Americans struggle with chronic or semi chronic insomnia. This lack of sleep affects our driving, work productivity, energy level and eating habits. Many people don’t realize they are sleep deprived. Sleep deprivation contributes to car accidents, weight gain and lack of energy.

In this workshop we will examine our daily routines, what we do and don’t do to prepare for sleep. Then, you will be introduced to new ways to help ready the body for sleep and slow the mind for rest.

Minimum of 5 needed to hold seminar, $40
