Ustrasana (camel pose) is a great counterpose for those who work at a computer all day, carry children around, spend hours hunched over in the garden, or are just feeling low energy. It stretches the entire front of the body, the ankles, thighs, groins, abdomen, chest, throat and deep hip flexors (psoas). It strengthens the back muscles and improves posture while stimulating the organs in the abdomen and neck.
Come practice with me this month, both restorative and energizing asanas.
Let’s find our balance, our sattva, the luminosity that comes with clarity of mind.
Monday evenings at Green Room Yoga:
The session starts Monday May 2nd- June 26st (no class Victoria Day May 23rd)

These classes are both energizing and calming. I incorporating alignment principles from my studies of Iyengar Yoga into sun salutations, flowing sequences of standing poses, core strengthening, seated and reclining poses. As the students progress, I introduce the challenge and playfulness of arm balances and inversions. At Green Room Yoga the small class size and progressive nature of a pre-registered class allows for a safe and supportive environment for deepening ones practice.
