“The Balance Workshop was a revelation for me. Lisa and Jacci don’t simply work on better balance poses, they reframe the concept of balance, helping us find confidence that a state of inner and outer balance is possible, even for those of us who feel a sense of dread anytime we’re asked to stand on one leg. The progression through information and activities was seamless, the environment unfailingly positive, the experience potentially life-changing.” ~Suzan Z.
HIP BONE CONNECTED TO THE THIGH BONE
Your hip joint is the spot where your thigh bone and your pelvis join together to allow you to walk, sit, sidle, bend, squat and any other movement you can imagine. To do this we need supple hips...hips that move with ease and without restriction. Hip strength and stability are often overlooked in this equation. Join us for two hours devoted to healthy hips.

WORKING WITH OSTEOPOROSIS
3pm - 5pm
Yoga has all the ingredients to combat osteoporosis. To your body add: a little bit of weight-bearing, a pinch of flexibility, a dollop of balance training, and a whole lot of strength building. This recipe slowly builds a more fully alive body that is less apt to fall, and more able to move through space with ease, grace, and confidence.
CARRYING THE WORLD ON YOUR SHOULDERS?
3pm - 5pm
Have your ever noticed that your shoulders have a mind of their own — sometimes ending up by your ears? Do they make popping sounds or round forward from hours of sitting at your computer? You are not alone. Shoulder discomfort and pain are a common result of our busy lives. Because it is such a complicated web of bones and muscles, it is vulnerable to injury from overuse and inactivity. Let’s play and release our shoulders by increasing range of movement, developing appropriate strength and stability and adding a little breathwork to melt the tension.
PAIN IN THE NECK
2pm - 4pm
The neck is the most popular answer when we start a class with the question, “What do you want to work on today?” However, before we can focus on the neck, we need to warm up the connections between our head, hands, hips and feet. This is a whole body workshop where in the end, all roads lead to greater range of motion, increased strength and stability, and the delicious release of tension.
“The Balance: Practicing Active Stillness workshop with Lisa and Jacci was inspiring, fun and challenging. The week after the workshop I was able to balance toe-to-heel with my eyes shut for the first time. I appreciated the strategies for practicing balance in our daily routine. Thanks Lisa and Jacci! I look forward to the next workshop: Hip Bone Connected to the Thigh Bone.” -Connie W.
