Posture and alignment workshop

We are all different

Our joints are build slightly differently left and right within our own bodies, so we cannot compare our posture and position with anyone else's. With age, we end up habitually in less biomechanically optimal postures that can lead to headaches, sore backs, shoulders, hips etc. These take time to move back to a more neutral position and cannot be forced or rushed or we may end up injuring ourselves further.

Learn how to find the best alignment for YOUR body when you sit, stand, and move through yoga poses. Learn how to start moving your body back to neutral if you find that working at a desk, driving a lot, device usage, or any other habitual activity has lead you towards posture-based pain patterns. Learn if you need to stretch or strengthen or both.

Join Osteopath Dr Danielle Harris, Massage therapist & Pilates instructor Ryo Shitamichi, and Yoga & meditation Instructor Sam Seghers for 90 minutes of postural self-assessment, stretches and strengthening you can do at home, and ideas on which are better to help you.

$25 or 2 classes from your 6-class pass
