Lucy Shaw, certified Athletic Trainer and resident Health Coach at the Harken Health Center in South Loop, leads this five week class, where each week the class will focus on a specific part of the body that commonly gets tight and sore due to daily life and stresses. Members in the class will learn basic postural skills that you can use in your daily life going forward to prevent and treat these common aches and pains. Each class will begin with a warm-up followed by a stretching sequence, self-mobilization techniques and strengthening exercises before ending with a gently cool-down stretch.
Yoga incorporates breathing techniques, deep stretching, light vinyasa work, foundational standing and balancing postures into a low-impact exercise for better health. There is an emphasis on meditation and mindfulness through breath work, toning and strengthening through subtle flowing, and gentle stretching for all the therapeutic benefits of yoga. All levels welcome!
