Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball Workshop

The Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball System provides targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using specially designed high-grip rubber balls and focused movement routines that help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas. This workshop will allow you to discover self-care techniques that will maintain and improve your strength and flexibility and prevent injuries. Learn whole-body exercises, approved by physical therapists, pain medicine specialists, and chiropractors, to experience long-lasting positive changes in the rotator cuff, spine, neck, jaw, hips, IT band, calves, and feet.  Help yourself to feel better in your body everyday!

Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls: Strategies for Self-Care

Using the Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls, learn specific techniques that will instantly roll out tension, improve your breathing capacity, break dysfunctional movement patterns, and provide valuable insight into your own anatomical architecture. Easy and effective self-massage techniques will address each major area of the body and teach you how to reduce and/or eliminate pain, prevent injuries, and augment your yoga and other movement practices.

Core Integration: A Total Abdominal Awakening

Access the Deepest Part of Your Core and tune up your Diaphragml! Core Integration addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual depths of your core so you can unlock the power of your center and reconnect to your inner strength. In this workshop, students will learn a series of deeply-layered abdominal exercises that strengthen from the inside out. This workshop penetrates weak muscle fibers, wrings out sluggish organs, stretches scar tissue, and awakens your entire nervous system. Diaphragmatic abdominopelvic exercises will reconnect you to your belly in a thoroughly conscious way. This is a safe and transformative class for those dealing with specific core injuries and is a challenge for all levels - from newcomers to teachers. You will leave class rooted in the radiant support of your integrated core.

Breathe In Bliss Out

Most of us can easily accelerate from zero to sixty in a heartbeat – but do you know how to decelerate just as fast? The holidays are over, the family is gone, and it is time to reclaim your sanity with some relaxation. , In this workshop you will explore your body’s blind spots using Yoga Tune Up® Therapy balls to uncover and release any points of tension followed by a guided, focused, meditation to allow you to experience a deep, conscious relaxation. Start the New Year off on the right foot, with a refreshed body, mind, and spirit. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of fitness and experience.

Hip Helpers

Yoga TuneUp® Hip Helpers workshop where she will teach you unique yoga-based therapeutic exercises. The therapy ball rolling and series of movement is specifically designed to break through the weakness and congestion in our hips caused by unhealthy habits in our modern lifestyles. Unlock the power of your hips and reconnect to the ease and freedom buried within. This series of deep hip and psoas exercises strengthens you from the inside out and is designed to penetrate congested connective tissues, stimulate weak muscles, and release tension throughout your body.

Refine Your Spine

Back pain strikes most people at some point in their life, and can become chronic or even debilitating. Postural accommodations we make to avoid discomfort (or caused by scoliosis) which are then reinforced by gravity and habit can result in rotator cuff injuries, respiratory and thyroid dysfunction, not to mention slipped discs. This workshop will help you identify and recondition your spinal “blind spots.” We’ll target the upper, middle and lower back with myofascial massage and exercises designed to eliminate pain and improve your posture. You’ll leave with a new backbone and the know-how to keep it healthy!

Retrofit Your Downdog

Downward Facing Dog is one of yoga's core postures, but it's complexity is often taken for granted. This workshop deconstructs the pose so that the teacher/practitioner becomes familiar with common structural limitations.  We warm up the soft tissues with YTU balls, we investigagate and improve each joint's range of motion and we incorporate YTU's signature structural stabilizing practices so that the day's first down dog is a stark contrast to the last down dog of the workshop.
