HERE'S A SNEAK PEEK AT THE PRACTICES...
FULL BODY STRETCH
This chair yoga practice creates space in the entire body, in particular the spine and hamstrings. Perfect after spending long periods of time seated at a desk or stuck in bed. Use this practice to wake up and re-energize the body. You will need a chair for this practice.
Use this practice to unwind before bed or anytime you wish to relax the body and quiet the mind. A cushion or folded blanket under the hips may make this seated practice more comfortable. You may also do this practice in bed if you’d like.
NECK AND SHOULDER RELEASE
Neck and shoulder tension are a common complaint in our modern, tech-savvy society. The gentle stretches and movements in this practice will help unravel this tension. A cushion or folded blanket under the hips may make this seated practice more comfortable . You may also do this practice in a chair or in bed if you’d like.
SOOO….WHAT’S A SPOONIE?
“Spoonie” is an affectionate nickname for people living with chronic illness. It is based on the Spoon Theory which was written by Christine Miserandino to explain how people living with chronic illness must carefully budget their energy in order to get through the day. I call my style of yoga Spoonie Yoga because these are gentle practices that are appropriate for Spoonies.
