CHANGE YOUR POSTURE - CHANGE YOUR LIFE with YogAlign, the pain free yoga from your inner core
Michaelle Edwards and Erin Starr
30 year Hawaii resident, yoga teacher, posture educator, author, musician, and body worker Michaelle Edwards will show you how to do YogAlign, a revolutionary style of Yoga fused with self guided bodywork which aligns your posture from the inside out. This retreat/workshop will focus on core strength, and naturally aligned posture using the movements of breathing and functional yoga/body positions that simulate how you use your body in real life. Free your fascia and learn how to reboot your nervous system to change posture habits quickly and painlessly.
Each participant will receive a postural assessment the first day, and photographs will be emailed showing the before and after effects of practicing YogAlign. You will leave the retreat with tools for health care self reliance. The yoga will engage your joints to be strong and stable as you gain functional flexibility and new insights into your body and how it works. As you change your postural patterns using the YogAlign method, you will be strengthening your kinesthetic awareness to stay present,naturally aligned, tuned, toned and pain-free.
Daily 2-3 hour YogAlign classes with Michaelle, private or shared accommodations, three gourmet meals a day with snacks, adventure excursions to the volcano, tide pools, rain forest, waterfalls, and soaks in the geothermal heated warm ponds. On some evenings, there will be movies, star gazing, and also music as Michaelle leads the group in singing with her guitar. Bring your voice and your instruments to share.
Learn how to apply the YogAlign method to all of your daily movements such as swimming, hiking and running. Stretch smart, avoid yoga injuries, and move with dynamic fluidity and no stress on your joints. YogAlign is for all levels and ages and is completely painless as there are no toe touching positions or pretzel twists. Yet the results are dramatic as you watch your posture shift to be natural, graceful, effortless and aligned. Bring your aches and pains, (the majority of which are just a result of poor posture patterns) and get ready to get back in your kid body and GO! All classes include self massage techniques to ease away daily tension while you align your spine the YogAlign way!
Sign up and pay in full by Aug 15 and you will be mailed a FREE copy of YogAlign, Pain-free Yoga from Your Inner Core; the book and DVD, valued at $62 with shipping.
