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.
With a doctorate in physical therapy, specializing in pelvic health, Karie Wik works at CarePartners Mission. This workshop will introduce you to exercises, awareness, anatomy, and how to improve self-care for the pelvic floor musculature. These conservative methods for restoring tone and strength to the pelvic floor may be especially helpful if you have a history of incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, or other symptoms.
Karie is also a certified yoga teacher and massage therapist.
