Please Be Advised...

 While regular classes are always welcome to walk-ins, and most special events and pop up classes have unlimited space, some do not. If the event description says RSVP, please do so. We need to know the number of people showing up to class, either because of the set up that happens before class starts or limited space. Either way, if you do not pre register on our schedulicity account or by contacting the instructor, you may be turned away at the time of the event. All registrations end the day before the specific event. Thank you for your consideration.

Yoga for Runners with Foot Massage

Tuesday, April 30, 6:00-7:30pm

image5

 Leah Staley, LMT & RYT, and Brynn Cunningham, RYT-200, both avid runners and yogis, bring you a unique Yoga for Runners experience, now including a Foot Massage! Beginning with a vinyasa-style yoga practice and dynamic sequence (designed to be performed pre-run as a warm-up), class will move seamlessly into sun salutations that link strength-building exercises and yoga poses targeting muscle groups specific to running. The physical portion of the workshop ends with a relaxing, cooling yin yoga and restorative-inspired flow accompanied by longer-held poses aimed at releasing connective tissue and common tight areas in the body due to running, using props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets. During the 20-30 minute cool-down, Leah Staley, LMT, will provide a therapeutic foot massage for each participant.

The workshop incorporates myo-fascial release exercises using foam rollers and therapy tools. Guided meditation and breath work (pranayama) designed to enhance running performance is interwoven throughout the practice.  Participants will receive electronic copies of the workshop's running resources via email post-workshop and must bring their own foam roller.

Open to all levels of runners (beginners to elite) and yoga practitioners (no experience to advanced).

The purpose of the workshop is to create a mind/body/spirit connection with running using yoga as a conduit and breathing as the primary guiding element so that running becomes a lifelong, easy, enjoyable, rhythmic practice, with yoga at it's core.

I am honored to guide you through a transformative experience to assist you in releasing emotions that may be stored in your body related to ANY loss you have experienced.  This practice incorporates movement, breath, and sound, as vehicles for release. We all have a wide range of losses and no loss is more important than another.  
Join me for a 75 minute journey as we move through 4 distinct phases that make up the practice of Grief Yoga.    We will work towards building an awareness of what feelings we are holding on to and then move toward expressing them through movement and breath.  Next, we will move toward re connecting with feelings that fill us up with joy and finally surrender to the idea of letting go of pain while staying connected to love.  
This class is appropriate for all levels.  Yoga mats, bolsters, and blankets are available for use if needed.  
It is recommended that you bring a journal and something to drink (water is available) to the class.  
Class is donation based.
