Sundays, from 2.00 pm – 3.15 pm EST | Sept-Oct, 2021

 

 

Achy joints and a stiff back might seem like a minor inconvenience right now.

But 10 years from now, when you can’t take your grandkids to the park or sit on the floor and play a game with them.

You’re going to wish you took those little nagging aches a little more seriously.

It’s time to reclaim your body and create alignment in your body and mind-spirit to create more ease in your life.

2 months from now, this is what your life could look like:

  • You get out of bed feeling refreshed, no aches, no pains. Just energy to take on the day
  • Your body feels better. You feel confident, and radiant.
  • You’re less reactive, more in control. You’re happier and more joyful.

Join Coming Into Alignment, a 6-week program designed to rejuvenate your mind and body.

The Language of Touch — A Workshop on Hands-On Assists 

with Anne Ethier

Saturday, September 25th, 1:00 – 4:30 pm EST

 

There is an art and a science to hands-on assists in yoga. Touch helps to communicate to the body direction, alignment, and adjustments that verbal cues often do not. Touch can also help assist students to deepen into the ease and calm of their breath, which frees up physical and emotional energy.
This is for teachers and students alike who wish to learn more about alignment and the balance of effort and ease in your yoga practice.

Come prepared to learn:

  • Ethical and responsible use of power as a teacher
  • Healthy alignment for maximum benefit for most bodies
  • Confidence in “reading” bodies, including your own
  • Enhance your ability to honor differences in bodies with an understanding of anatomy and psychology
  • Practical reasons to touch or not in yoga poses
  • The science behind touch
  • Technical and applicable ways to assist another in poses

About The Instructor – Anne Ethier:

Using simple yet profound methods of empathetic and genuine presence, mindful attention, and gentle acceptance, Anne helps students awaken to their growth and healing. Trained as a certified massage therapist, counselor and yoga teacher, Anne teaches anatomy in a practical and easily accessible format. With over 22+ years of experience in the health and fitness industry, Anne brings a unique blend of body oriented counseling, mindfulness, and extensive study in human physiology to the art of yoga.
