FREE YOURSELF FROM CHRONIC PAIN with THERAPEUTIC & RESTORATIVE YOGA with Julia Lorimer

Julia Lorimer Date/Time:
Four Saturdays: May 18, June 22, July 20 & Aug. 17 • 2:30 – 4:30pm
Instructor: Julia Lorimer
Fees:
- $40 pre-registered, each class
- $45 drop-in, each class
Levels: All – some yoga experience is helpful

Each workshop will help you to identify the cause and the effect of tension patterns that can lead to chronic pain and injuries. Each series is new and individualized with the aim to release tension and pain from your mind and body as it is today. Gentle traction poses will be used for bringing newfound strength and elasticity in the body; wall ropes and other specialized props will be used for opening stuck tight parts of the body.

Presented in simple language, Julia will demonstrate alignment principles for achieving balance, core strength and deep breathing as they apply to various body regions and conditions. The activities of daily living including sitting, standing and moving will become sources of healing and less sources of stress, tension and pain. You will gain a deeper sense of resilience from the wear and tear of life as you move through the world.

Guided meditations taught in class help you to calm your reactions to the stresses of life. They provide a quiet place to relax in your own stable presence and to discover yourself more healed and whole. In meditation, the wayward mind is led back to its own source, your own benign presence, simple and free.

These guided meditations are based in non-dual teachings from the Bhagavad Gita as taught by Swami Dayananda.

Classes will focus on healing yourself from pain in the following areas
- May 18: Lower Back & Sciatica
- June 22: Shoulder, Wrist & Hand
- July 20: Hip, Pelvic Floor, Knee & Foot
- Aug 17: Neck & Upper Back Pain

LAST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH RESTORATIVE CLASS with Jamie Lamka

- Four Saturdays: May 25, June 29, July 27 & Aug. 31 • 4:00 – 6:00 pm
Instructor: Jamie Lamka
Fees:
- $100 pre-registered, all four classes
- $30 pre-registered, each class
Levels: All

Jamie will give a special class at the end of each month devoted to poses (asanas) of deep relaxation and restoration.

“These asanas are known as Visranta Karaka asanas and are meant to rest the organic body. Each organ is as though separated from the others in order to oxygenate and rest. With the knife of consciousness and awareness, one is able to dissect the body from inside.
However, one has to prolong the duration of stay in the asanas five to ten minutes, in order to have recovery” Geeta S. Iyengar

YOGA & THE PELVIC FLOOR with Susan McCormick

Susan McCormickDate/Time: Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019 • 1:00–3:30 pm
Instructor: Susan McCormick
Fees:
- $40 pre-registered BEFORE Sept. 1;
- $50 pre-registered Sept 1 or later, or drop-in
Levels: All levels are welcome

Messages we have received throughout our lives have reinforced a subtle disapproval of talk about women's bodies "down there." We pay a price for maintaining a polite distance from our hips and what lies between them.

This workshop will attempt to shed light on the appearance, function/dysfunction and maintenance of this most powerful and intimate of our bodily parts. Many women have come to this subject seeking an alternative to surgery for their issues with prolapse, incontinence and pelvic pain. Through the instruction and practice of yoga, overly tight pelvic floor muscles can be relaxed and too loose muscles can be strengthened, bringing understanding and relief to those experiencing discomfort in the pelvic region. Physical postures and exercises will make up a part of this workshop and can be done with or without a background in yoga.

SUSAN McCORMICK has been practicing yoga for the past 20 years, teaching since 2008 and studies regularly with senior Iyengar teachers. Interest in strengthening her pelvic floor to avoid surgery led her to seek out experts in the fields of physical therapy and pelvic floor yoga. She received teacher training and certification to teach pelvic floor work from Leslie Howard and is the lead instructor for UCSF’s onging study on incontinence and yoga. Empowering women who are struggling with the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction is important to her and evident in her gentle but precise manner of teaching.
