Sacral Rhythm and Low Back Health with Doug

June 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

At the center of all movement lies the sacrum, the keystone of the pelvis, which regulates the curve of the spine as well as the ‘openness’ and flexibility of the hips.

Rethinking the Shoulders with Doug

June 10 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

‘The Head is the Foundation’ A vital part of understanding problems involving the shoulders and arms rests upon understanding the role of the head as the ‘foundation’ of shoulder health. Traditionally we think of the foundation of the body — in yoga and in our posture in life — in terms of the foundation set by the feet (and how the bones are ‘stacked’ above it). But because the shoulders ‘hang’ from the head in important ways, it’s vital to…
