Back to Movement: Yoga for a Healthy Back @ The Yoga Sanctuary
Yoga is one of the best ways to alleviate — or even begin to cure — chronic back pain. This four-week series will give you a better understanding of your back pain and how to manage it, in and out of class. We will address how to relieve pain both in the moment and over time. Ideal for those with ongoing issues, whether the pain is daily, monthly, or once every few years. Each participate will receive a copy of Mary Pullig Schatz’s Back Care Basics. Open to everyone; no yoga experience necessary.

Playing with Balance @ The Yoga Sanctuary
Ah, Balance. How often in our lives we are reminded that too much of a good thing is … too much! Even our yoga practice, when practiced to the extremes of too much challenge – or not enough – becomes unbalanced. In this workshop, we’ll use a variety of poses and sequences – including balancing poses, to explore how we develop the harmony between effort and ease that helps us find balance, both on and off the mat. For more information visit www.theyogasanctuary.biz or call 941.505.YOGA(9642).
