YOGA IS A MULTI-LAYERED PRACTICE that gives you tools to calm and heal your body. Yoga has been shown to relieve inflammation, stiffness and pain, while increasing strength, flexibility and well-being. In fact, some of the most dramatic physical changes in yoga have happened not with the fit or athletic, but with people who suffer and are limited in their movement.
IN THIS SERIES Lesa will use specific yoga poses appropriate for you to ease the frequent tightness in your body, thereby creating a greater state of ease and a greater range of motion. In addition, she will cover the basics for creating your own home practice, which can support you during the week in between the classes – extending the benefits of the one-on-one attention this small class setting will provide.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. All levels are welcome. Bring a yoga mat, (1 belt, blocks, 2 blankets, if you have) Do arrive 10 min before, prepared to open up, relax and enjoy. This In-Person class is similar to the Tuesday/Thursday classes we used to hold pre-pandemic. Appropriate for any level beginner to advanced with a therapeutic focus and workshop style presentation.
This special series will be limited to 10 people on a first-come, first-serve basis. Flyer Even though it is a series, Drop Ins are warmly welcome since each class is a stand alone focus. Email email@example.com to reserve a spot.

LEARN POSES WITH APPLIED ACUPRESSURE POINTS
TO ENHANCE YOUR OWN HEALTH
In yoga we have postures/poses used in specific order to support our health. Acupuncture is an ancient practice now recognized by Western Medicine practices.
Lesa will present how to use Yoga to assess imbalance in the body and what sequences can be applied for optimal health. Laura will teach what acupressure points can do to optimize your health in general or in between sessions with your acupuncturist.
Put the two together and double the benefits.
The Workshop: This 2 hour workshop is from Oct 2020. It is now available for purchase.
