Workshops, Session Classes, Special Classes, Yoga Retreats and other events are an important part of our service to the community, offering a chance to learn something new and/or refine existing practices. First time considering a yoga retreat? Here you can immerse yourself in yoga, be in good company, and have a vacation in Nature as well. In May 2019 we will be returning to Costa Rica for another Yoga Adventure Week. Due to limited space, we advise reserving the workshop, special class, or retreat of your choice well in advance.

Tech Neck, or How to Get Your Head on Straight

Saturday June 2 from 2:00-4:00 pm  $35

Is technology throwing your head for a loop? With our modern lifestyle of computers, laptops and phones, our heads are pitching forward for extended periods of time adding weight to the delicate muscles of the neck and prolonging tension in our shoulders. This workshop will teach you the proper alignment for your head as well as simple exercises to relieve tension and restore freedom of movement. With Carol Mason, RYT

“I thought the Tech Neck Workshop was informative and beneficial. I have a shoulder injury and this workshop was great for my neck and shoulders. I subconsciously guard my injury and that has affected my neck. I would take this workshop again.” Kendall

“The workshop was great. It gave me an awareness of helpful postures for the head, neck and shoulder areas. In the exercises we did I could feel a release, especially at the end when I felt the tension in my jaw, which I was not aware of, release. My jaw just dropped. I think the principles of alignment and information about body structures presented are so helpful for me to tune into my own body. Thanks.”  Janet
