10:00am MST

Tech Neck
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Long hours spent at a computer create a forward-pitched head posture resulting in neck & shoulder tension. Carrying around children, driving, and stress from every day activities can also slowly whittle away at our uprightness creating a head-forward, slump-shouldered and collapsed chest posture often resulting in neck, arm and upper back pain (what Tias Little calls "schlump-asana"). The focus in this workshop will be on releasing tension in the neck, upper shoulders, and jaw and creating greater freedom of movement in those areas. Reducing cranial pressure may also result in relief from common complaints such as migraines, insomnia, eye strain, and bruxism. The shoulders are so closely tied to the neck that when there is shoulder strain it often comes with neck pain. In this workshop, we'll explore gentle flowing movements (the SATYA work developed by Tias Little) as a way of releasing holding patterns in the neck and shoulders and hydrating these areas with an increased flow of blood & prana, both vital in maintaining the health and longevity of the shoulders, cervical spine, and their surrounding structures. Parameters for participation include: the ability to get up and down off the floor without assistance, freedom from medical devices, and no acute spinal disc or nerve compression. No prior yoga experience is necessary.

Love & Service - Full Body Prayer
Limited Capacity seats available

A yogic lifestyle (via love & service) is a full-body prayer. This trauma-informed healing session integrates the ancient eastern wisdom traditions of yoga and ayurveda with western tools for recovery to enhance the participant's understanding of yoga as therapy for recovery. This session offers a trauma-sensitive framework weaving specific practices (asana, pranayama, mindfulness, etc.) designed to reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and other co-occurring symptoms. We will explore a comprehensive approach to emotional sobriety by embodying concepts including surrender, letting go, acceptance, growth, awakening, gratitude, and selfless service as an inquiry into the physical, energetic, mental and emotional body. Come discover the interaction between body, breath, mind, intellect, and emotions - moving towards integrated health and well-being.

Heart to heart: Self care while teaching to trauma sensitive populations
Limited Capacity seats available

When we teach to trauma sensitive populations, we are doubly charged with teaching from a place of integrity. We must be willing to teach from a place of authenticity and total presence, while also maintaining unflinching safety for our students. How do we maintain those boundaries while staying engaged and compassionate? And how do we stay open while also taking care of ourselves? During this workshop, we will explore practices for maintaining personal well being while staying connected to the heart. We will explore our own reasons for doing the work we do, and delve into the ways that may or may not affect our ability to stay present with our students. Until we are scrupulously clear about our motives and the ways in which we care for them, we cannot operate with integrity. By tending to our own hearts, we can more fully attend to the hearts of others. Finally, we will identify specific practices for self care, including restorative yoga, soothing mantras, and self massage.

Core and Stretch for Back Health
Limited Capacity seats available

A strong core stabilizes the spine and provides support for posture and movement. The spine also is the epicenter for mobility and the vertebrae are designed to move like "pearls on a string". Balancing these two forces is the source of back health as well as the challenge in creating a healthy back practice. In this practice we will explore movement to connect to your core. A flowing sequence of yoga poses will help to unlock the spine and correct muscular imbalances for a pain free back.
