Slow Flow Yoga with Turi Hetherington

Monday and Wednesday, March 11 and 13, 4:30 - 5:30 pm

Coordinate your movement with your breath to develop strength, flexibility, and balance in body and mind. In this practice we slow things down a notch to develop a keen awareness in the present moment so when things speed up in life we can remain calm and move with confidence, ease, and grace.

Core Connections with Nancy Ruby

Tuesday, March 12, 9:00 - 10:15 am

The core is not one specific muscle, but a range of different muscles that work together as a team to support your spine and pelvis, provide balance and stability and generate power to lift and move the body as a single functional unit. Connecting to your core will build inner strength allowing you to drop in deeply to your postures safely and effectively.

Gentle Therapeutic Yoga with Nancy Ruby

Tuesday, March 12, 10:30 - 11:45 am

In this practice you will learn to embrace your body as it is in the present moment, working compassionately with limitations while bringing attention to all that is possible. Functional alignment is supported by breath as the foundation of all movement. Awakening sensitivity is a primary focus. With these elements in place your yoga becomes a moving meditation, harmonizing body, breath, mind, and senses.

ABOUT LYB:

LYB-logoThe LoveYourBrain Foundation (LYB) is a non-profit that improves the quality of life of people affected by traumatic brain injury and raises awareness about the importance of brain health. Guided by their family’s experience, LYB was established by brothers, Adam and Kevin Pearce, following Kevin’s severe TBI from a snowboarding accident prior to the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. Kevin’s remarkable resilience was documented and transformed into the award-winning HBO Documentary, “The Crash Reel,” which brought light to the experience of TBIs.
