- Life is hard, Yoga can help -
What is mobility and why is it important to maintain?
Mobility is the ability of your joints to move through their full range with control & without restriction. When you have a limited range of movement, it can make everyday things - like putting on your shoes or getting up off the floor - not only difficult but potentially painful.
How can Yoga help?
With a focus on the mobility of your shoulders, hips, and ankles, you'll learn what yoga postures help stretch & strengthen the surrounding muscles so the joints can be stabilized and move freely. Using Thera-Bands, explore ways to stretch, stabilize, and mobilize your joints. Each class will also include breathing exercises, movement, self-reflection, and meditation to build self-awareness as you unlock new movement patterns.
These classes will be offered in a four-week series. Signing up for all four classes is encouraged. If you cannot commit to each class, book the class(es) you can attend at the drop-in rate ($15).
For all ages and abilities but does involve lying on the floor and some kneeling.

With her Yoga Therapy Certificate, Linda is excited to share the practice of yoga that quite truly changed her life. For a long time, she suffered from a severe anxiety disorder that left her paralyzed in fear, nervousness, and in a constant state of worry. Realizing she needed a change, she tried yoga and committed to a regular meditation practice. Through yoga, meditation, and therapy, Linda began to feel relief, along with a stronger sense of inner peace and well-being.
Having experienced the healing qualities of yoga, she looks forward to helping others experience freedom from suffering.
