Standing Balance Workshop with Leo CheungMay 15, 2013
If you’ve always thought Yoga was only for the slender and bendy, this workshop is for you!
Come join Certified Yoga Teacher, Lisa Papez, in this one of a kind workshop and learn the components of a basic practice that you can do in the body you are in right now. This simple recipe for practice incorporates gentle movement, strengthening, opening and stretch for most parts of the body.
This workshop is suitable for people of all shapes, sizes, and levels of ability – but is especially appropriate for those in larger bodies or those looking for a gentler, more accessible approach to Yoga.
What you’ll learn:
- Body Positivity Yoga Six-Way Spinal Warm-Up
- Body Positivity Yoga Gentle Sun Salutations
- Simple Balancing Poses
- Restorative Finishing Postures to close your practice
These components, when assembled together, allow you to customize a simple, physically accessible practice that you can do at home or that you can use as modifications you can take with you into future Yoga classes
