Strategies for Self-Care Workshops
Tune Yourself Up!
In these 2 1/2 hour workshops, we use the Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls to explore areas of tension and sources of dysfunctional movement patterns from the ground up. From feet to neck, we address each major area of your body learning how to reduce or eliminate pain, prevent injuries and supplement whatever movement practice you most enjoy. This work is appropriate for everyone who is interested in living more comfortably in their body, from elite athletes to couch potatoes. The main “prerequisite” is a willingness to learn about your body and take action to improve its function.
The Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls are not just a fantastic tool for self massage. They help you address your own pain. They give you information about your body revealing “blind spots” where you are unknowingly tense, weak or stuck. They can be both incredibly relaxing and therapeutic.
The fee for each workshop is $25. If you have your own balls, please bring them (write your name on them!). Studio balls will be available for your use, or you may purchase your own set at 20% off retail the day of the workshop.
If you’d like a quick preview of what we do with the Roll Model Method balls, check out our weekly “Roll and Relax” class on Wednesdays from 6:30-7. You can pay a $5 drop in, or add the class on at the end of 5PM Vinyasa of the Beginning of 7PM Strong Yoga for Functional Movement.
