[Live Streamed] Strong Foundations: A 5-Day Challenge with Shari Larson
Jul 27, 2020| $30
Join Shari for a 5-day challenge to create strength to support your yoga practice. Each 30-minute class will focus on an area of the body that can experience irritation in your yoga practice — wrists, shoulders, hips, hamstrings, and spine. Explore your active range of motion and learn ways to strengthen throughout your range using exercises from various modalities including Functional Range Conditioning, Pilates, and more. It will be helpful if you have a slippery surface to move on (tile, hardwood, linoleum) and stretchy bands (alternatively a yoga strap or belt).
A Note From Shari
I see yoga as a lifelong practice but see many students rubbing wrists and complaining of shoulder and hip discomfort. Creating strength in active range of motion and increasing proprioception (body awareness) helps to decrease pain.
*These classes will be hosted on Zoom from the instructor’s home.
Date & Time: Jul 27th – Jul 31st, 2020 @9:30am – 10am
About the instructor: Shari Larson
I walked into my first (hot) yoga class in 2002. The entire 90 minutes I ran through a variety of emotions, mostly frustration and anger. I was so glad when it was finally over but realized that perhaps there was something there to be uncovered. Over the next several years whenever I tried a new style of yoga and experienced intense emotions I had to go back to figure out why. This curiosity has led me to a variety of teacher trainings from Vinyasa to Yin to Kundalini and to more anatomy trainings than I care to admit.
These days the styles I practice and teach the most are the quieter practices of Yin/Restorative and slower practices of yoga where there is time to be curious about the thoughts that arise and the sensations that move through the body. I love to incorporate a variety of tools – balls, stretchy bands, blankets, and even pool noodles to explore new ways of moving the body. My favorite moments in class are when I look around and see a variation in the shapes being practiced. Every body is different and we’ve lived different lives, so it makes sense that no one alignment would work for everyone.
When not teaching or preparing to teach, you can often find me walking my dog or wandering around the Puget Gulch, my favorite escape from the city.
