Happy Hour: Restorative Therapeutic Yoga (with the Magical Therapeutic Spinal Strips)

Friday, August 17

6:00pm - 7:30pm (Social Hour afterwards)

$35/$30 TULA Members

Join us fort a special addition of Happy Hour Yoga dedicated to help you de-stress, improve the function of your spine,relieve pain or tension in the upper and lower back,  and mobilize and stabilize your shoulder girdles.  Because many of us spend great amounts of time with our heads and shoulders in a forward orientation: i.e. working at our computers, driving, or doing manual labor – it is not uncommon for our spines to become locked by tight superficial muscles in the upper, middle and lower back.  

The therapeutic spinal strip is a safe and gentle way to bring mobility to this area of the spine using the tools of Critical Alignment Therapy and principles of SomaYoga Therapy.

Begin to uncover the unexamined beliefs, habits, and patterns that keep you stuck and run your life. Then make a plan to move beyond these limiting behaviors to a more expansive existence.
