Integrating in this class: YOGA FOR DUDES and PRENATAL

I often see men for massage therapy who complain of low back pain and overall stiffness and inflexibility. I ask : ” What do you do for self care after your workouts or daily life? Do you warm up and cool down after workouts? Do you stretch?” 99% of the time the answer is “No, but I know I should.”

Well dudes, here is the beginning for you. A stretching class for dudes just like you!

Learn about why stretching is important for joint and tissue health, how to prevent injury from your activities of daily life, and most importantly, experience how your body feels after providing tissues and joints with new sensory inputs and nutrition.

These sessions are tailored to meet your needs. Whether you are rehabilitating an injury, are new to yoga and nervous to be in a group of people who are perhaps more experienced than you, or if you own a business and would like to offer your employees a Staff Appreciation Class,  I can teach you one on one. I will provide verbal and manual adjustments so you can experience what proper alignment feels like in your body and how to adjust yourself in future classes. I will give you the confidence and tools you need to take with you to public classes.
