With Kelly Gilmore, Yoga Teacher and Massage Therapist
Change Your Posture - Save Your Neck (and Shoulders!) Yoga for Your Posture with Kelly Gilmore ERYT 500, LMBT Poor posture can be a leading cause for low/mid, upper back and neck pain. In this demanding world we find ourselves busier than ever and always on the go creating unhealthy muscular patterns in our bodies that we don’t recognize until there is pain. Studies have shown that good posture increases energy, positive thinking, confidence and longevity. This 2 hour workshop is sequenced therapeutically for all levels. Freeing up the hips, abdomen and shoulders we will work our way to the spine with practical poses to bring more postural awareness in to our every day lives with special focus on the neck and shoulders. Kelly is an ERYT 500 and a LMBT in NC with extensive training in yoga therapeutics, clinical massage, postural analysis and neuromuscular patterning. Handouts to continue the lessons. Practical exercises to improve posture.
