HEALING CHRONIC PAIN & INJURY WITH YOGA & MEDITATION with Julia Lorimer

Julia Lorimer Date/Time:
- Jan. 27, Feb. 25, Mar. 24 & Apr. 28 • 2:00 – 4:30pm
Instructor: Julia Lorimer
Fees:
- Pre-registered: $40
- Drop-in: $45
Levels: All

Each class will identify the anatomy and pathology of chronic pain issues and injuries and how to avoid them. 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. In addition, they will relate to one’s seated meditation posture or sedentary habits of living. These classes will leave you understanding safer, non-hurting ways to sit and move in all your activities 24/7. This holistic approach to yoga releases held stuck patterns from the body and the mind, ultimately connecting you to the promising discovery of yourself healed and whole. The guided meditations help resolve concerns about your own healing journey; and finally lead the wayward mind back to its own source, your own benign presence. These meditations are based in non-dual teachings gleaned from the Vedanta scriptures, the Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita.
Classes are for people seeking relief from chronic pain, and for teachers seeking to learn the specialty of pain management, and they are also designed for people with little to no background in yoga.

- Feb. 25 (Sunday): Shoulder, Arms & Wrists
- Mar. 24 (Saturday): Feet, Knees & Hips

Join this workshop focusing on opening the chest area. Opening this part of the body is a great way to improve your posture if you are having a forward leaning posture.

Freeing up this area of the body will give you a new way of seeing life as you expand your breathing capacity and connect deeper to your heart center.

Join Ananda Ma for a nourishing practice of yoga in support of finding contentment and friendliness under any condition.

YOGA ASANA (postures) give us a safe way to explore our emotional states as well as the means to strengthen our entire system from the physical to the most subtle and profound.

YOGA and MEDITATION are ways to calm the mind and allow our natural deep well of serenity and wisdom to flourish in our hearts and minds and in our daily lives. To do so we need to have harmony between our body and mind, to be grounded in the present moment, and to feel stable, confident and whole. Iyengar’s yoga provides that strength from within, and to support physical, mental and emotional well being.
