Upcoming Workshops and Events:
Yoga Series for a Healthy Back
Jan 10
The spine is the central feature of the human body. It supports the head, gives stability to the pectoral and pelvic girdle, and transmits body weight while standing and walking. In the yogic tradition, the spine is the abode of the nadis, channels through which the energies of the subtle body are said to flow. Muscular imbalance, spinal curve distortion, and incorrect posture cause back pain, body misalignment, and loss of energy. If you wish to improve your understanding of back issues, learn how traditional and modified yoga poses can help to improve spinal alignment and mobility, and to decrease back pain, this workshop is for you.

Safe Inversions for Back Care & Scoliosis
Feb 15
Feeling fearful of inversions due to your Scoliosis or back issues? Join DL for this workshop, which has a specific sequence to build up your courage to reach for the King and Queen of inversions, the Headstand and Shoulderstand! All the preparatory poses and inversions will be adjusted and propped with ropes, blocks, chairs, blankets and more, for the special needs of a back care student! We will be discussing the benefits of adding inversions to a daily yoga session. One of DL's famous take home manuals will accompany the workshop.
