Yoga For Strength

Join Barb Oakes, ERYT, Certified Pilates and Fitness Instructor for this 90-minute workshop that will help you build strength by integrating light weights into your yoga practice.  

Why weights? Similar to how you may use a block or strap to enhance your practice, weights can help build mental and physical strength by challenging mind and muscles in new ways. By adding light weight, you can improve balance and coordination, increase core strength, bone density, and heart health — extending the life and quality of your practice.

Eischens Yoga With Cheryl

Eischens Yoga focuses on physical and energetic alignment. By recognizing imbalances in the skeleton, muscles and breath the practice guides us toward balance to help reduce pain, relieve tension and increase energy. 

Eischens Yoga’s use of props and hands on feedback looks at how bodies function in specific poses.  Eischens is rooted in Iyengar Yoga and incorporates ideas from Ayurveda, movement theory and kinesiology.  

For the first class in this series of workshops we will focus on the hips and work toward restoring them to their more intended function. We will work in poses that help lift the weight from the hip joint by activating the legs and low abdominals. Through this you can create more space between the bones that make up the hip joint.
