Join Sarah Garden for this therapeutic, alignment-focused course that’s designed to help you counter the negative effects of slumped posture—something many of us know well from sitting for long periods of time day after day. It’s a program for all ages, so if there’s someone in your life who could also benefit from it—your child, your partner, your parents, a friend—Sarah encourages you to share these go-to practices with them. And if you’re a yoga teacher, you’ll find this information exceptionally practical and customizable for a wide range of students.
You’ll get three yoga classes and three short introductions to them where Sarah breaks down the mechanics of the type of movement you’ll be doing and what role it plays in your posture, breath, and overall wellness. The practices are: Uncurling the Mid Back, Getting Some Space: Sidebending, and Let’s Twist Again.
You can look forward to using massage balls to release stiffness and tension and doing relaxing supported chest-openers that allow your shoulders to release down. You’ll also receive tips for how to improve your chair posture, do targeted hip flexor stretches at the wall, and more. And because Sarah focuses on breath awareness throughout the course, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to slow down and proceed at a pace that’s right for you. She also offers tips for how to keep your body healthy during the work or school day, highlighting practices that you can do at lunchtime and props you can keep at your desk for easy access.
This is an excellent opportunity to revitalize body and mind, so take a deep breath, a feel-good stretch, and let’s begin.
