Ayurveda is the traditional holistic healing system of India, often called the mother of all healing. Originating over 5000 years ago in India, Ayurveda is based on understanding the balances of nature and how they apply to our daily lives. Ayurveda centers on diet and lifestyle as the keys to optimal health with established healthy routines. As a sister science to yoga, Ayurveda is considered the healing side of yoga. Learn your unique constitution or dosha, along with self-care practices, diet, exercise, and cooking tips to bring harmony into your life.

Most of the things that we do on a daily basis, such as looking at our cell phone, computer work, driving, cooking and cleaning, tend to strain the neck, round the shoulders forward and create bad posture. Yoga offers a bountiful array of methods to relieve neck, shoulder and upper back issues, as well as ways to strengthen neck, thoracic spine, shoulders and core muscles. The mind/body connection is also a very important aspect of neck, shoulder and upper back issues. In this workshop you will learn easy ways to relieve tension in the neck, shoulders and upper back as well as ways to stretch and strengthen those areas. We will also explore how our emotions and feelings can affect the upper body. You will leave this workshop with ways to be more mindful and aware of your daily posture. You will create your own tool box of remedies to unravel tension and pain in your neck, shoulders and upper back.

Tension and Stress Release Workshop

Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 2:00-4:00 pm presented at Yoga Connection, 3929 E Pima St., Tucson, AZ 85712

Cost: $20  ($25 if registered after 4/27/19)

Our bodies can store lots of stress, tension, fear, and unhealed emotional and physical traumas. The psoas muscle is one of the most important muscles in the body, but is also one of the least understood. Your psoas muscles, one on each side, are the deepest muscles in your core. They attach on each side of your low back, run through your pelvis and attach to the femur bones. They are the only muscles that connect your spine to your legs. Your psoas muscles are constantly responding to your breath and your emotions. When you are tense or stressed or startled, your psoas muscles contract, pushing the body into flight, fight or freeze status. When the psoas contracts, it can be felt as pain in the knees, low back and hips or exhaustion. This workshop will use yoga poses to assist the body to release muscular patterns of stress and tension. We will then allow the body to gently vibrate, move or shake to allow the psoas muscles to relax and the nervous system to calm down. We will end our session with a short guided yoga nidra. You will leave this workshop refreshed and rested and you will have an important self-care tool that you can use on your own at home.

What People say

Having been a yoga student of Becky's for more than ten years, I believe that she is an outstanding teacher and mentor. She is dedicated to learning/growing in her own practice, and she eagerly shares her knowledge and information with her students. She has a gentle wisdom and manner, and is gifted at ensuring that each student's practice addresses his/her own individual needs and abilities. I often feel that she can "read" my mind/body!

Our journey to Peru was an amazing adventure! I can't say what I loved the best -- the Sacred Valley oasis of Willka Tika with those beautiful chakra flower gardens, Machu Picchu and the grand sense of the past, or our tour guide's passionate stories of the ancient and wise peoples. It was wonderful to have the daily yoga practice to give us all a deep truth connection to our surroundings. This was a well developed and intimate adventure for all of us.
