Cultivating a Sustainable Core:
Prevent Injuries and Improve Performance by Combining Physical Therapy, Sports Medicine, Yoga, and Strength and Conditioning Principles
What is the Core? It is much more than the abdominal muscles. Discover your physical and energetic center while learning how to move more efficiently in this workshop. We will review and discuss core anatomy, applied pranayama (efficient breathing), and spinal alignment through the combined lenses of a yoga therapist, physical therapist, athletic trainer, and strength and conditioning specialist.
You will experience learning through lecture, movement, and self-inquiry. Beginners and experienced teachers/therapists alike are welcome. There will be an hour of gentle, all levels, therapeutic core yoga sequence followed by an hour lecture with plenty of movement breaks. Tea and light snacks will be served. Arrive scent-free please.
Next offering: Saturday, December 8, 2018. Body Temple Studio.

Chakras, Fascia, and Sound Healing Workshop
Discover and experience the deep healing that comes from the subtle vibrations within our own bodies and from the Universe. This workshop focuses on activating the Chakras by combining lecture, gentle yoga practice, and sound healing facilitated through special crystal bowls and healing sound vibrations. The lecture combines ancient wisdom from Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the latest scientific research on muscle and fascia anatomy, neurotransmitters, and healing resonances. The sound healing will be performed by Robert Hamaker, a professional symphonic percussionist who has dedicated his skills to promoting chakra alignment. The lecture and yoga practice will be presented and guided by seasoned physical therapist and yogini, Liz Duncanson, of Body Temple Physical Therapy in Oakland, with over 20 years of experience in the healing arts and sports medicine. 4 hours.
