Keys to Unlocking: Taking a Stand
Susan Walsh, Tuesday, December 7, 12:30-1:45 pm
Why is posture so important? Sitting and standing with proper alignment improves blood flow, helps keep our nerves and blood vessels healthy, and supports our muscles, ligaments, and tendons. When we make a habit of using correct posture we are less likely to experience related back and neck pain. Yoga is one of the best ways to improve posture and retrain our muscles to support us as we sit and stand.
This mini workshop will focus on ways to help gently improve your posture through:
- Toning weak muscles
- Stretching tight muscles
- Practicing proper alignment techniques
- Developing body awareness
Good posture helps us to develop strength, flexibility, and balance in our bodies as well as give us confidence. This can lead to less muscle pain and more energy throughout the day. Proper posture can also reduce risk of injury.
Open to nine fully vaccinated students in person at Shree. 48 hours cancellation required for a refund.

Balance in Motion
In person with Susan Walsh, Tuesday, January 16, 2022 12:30~1:45 pm
Static balance is the ability to hold a stationary position with control. Dynamic balance is the ability to remain balanced while engaged in movement. Most activities in life require dynamic balance as we navigate daily tasks, go for a walk, reach out to hold someone.
This mini workshop will focus on a variety of methods including yoga therapeutics, muscular engagement and balance exercises, to increase your dynamic balance through:
- Improve muscle tone
- Address muscular imblanaces
- Increase body and balance awareness
- Improve posture
Regular practice of yoga in this way can make you feel steadier on your feet, stronger in your legs, more confident in your movements and more comfortable going about the tasks of everyday life. Whatever your age, improving balance can give you a more confident stance in life.
In person at Shree, this mini workshop is open to anyone who is fully vaccinated. 48 hour cancellation required for refund. For those who lack confidence in their steadiness, a chair or wall will be provided for additional support.
