Gentle Yoga for a Healthy Spine
In this gentle class, guided by the breath, we will build a practice that will release, strengthen and stretch the spine. Dynamic and static movement and poses will help release muscle tension, strengthen postural muscles, and support activities of daily life. Discover why correct alignment is important to overall health as well as spine health. Conscious breathing linked with gentle movement helps to manage stress and chronic pain by activating the relaxation response. Safe and supportive for all levels.

Her passion is movement that releases and strengthens low back, supports postural muscles and opens the spine and movement to free and stabilize major joints in the body for healthy aging. Safe and supportive for all levels.
