RUNNERS’ RECOVERY: POST MARATHON BLISS

Runner's Recovery

Get your mind and body back in gear after running the New York City Marathon!*  Whether or not you plan to complete 26.2 miles around New York City – recovery is underrated.

Sore hamstrings, hips, IT bands, lower backs, & even nagging foot pain are just a few of the issues we will address as we restore tissues and illuminate areas that need some serious TLC.

We will use Roll Model Method® Therapy balls and specific movement strategies to reduce restriction, eliminate pain, and enhance your ability to recover gracefully – so that you can get right back on the road (or take some well-deserved time off, pain-free!)

Love, Trust & Hammocks

A Workshop for Couples, Partners and Lovers
with Kevin Bigger and Amanda Winkler

Cost: $60 per couple by Feb. 1st / $80 per couple after 
(Only One Person per Couple need to Register) Members Save 10%!

This is love:
to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
First, to let go of life.
In the end, to take a step without feet.

-Rumi

Much like a loving relationship, Aerial Yoga requires trust: in order to fly through the air, we must trust that we will not fall.

In this workshop for couples, partners and lovers, we'll learn ways to open the body by trusting the support of the aerial hammock. As things start to get groovy, we'll explore ways to safely spot your partner as they truly begin to defy gravity. There will be plenty of time to wind down and gently support your partner in restorative poses before you snuggle up together in a hammock for a loving nap. When you wake up, we'll have the wine and chocolate waiting.

About the Instructors:

Kevin and Amanda love each other. If Kevin weren't gay, or if Amanda wasn't married when they met, things might be very different. Alas, their love will have to be expressed through teaching this workshop. For more information, check out their bios at www.omfactorynyc.com.

Explore Your Core with Yoga Tune Up®

Explore Your Core flyer

Join Integrated Yoga Tune Up ® teacher, Amanda Winkler, on a journey of core integration and exploration. In this workshop we will activate, navigate, and integrate the muscles and soft tissue of the trunk in order to more fully inhabit our physical and emotional core. Not only is core integration and understanding vital to our physical health (think structural support, protection, and digestion), it is also instrumental in shaping and supporting our self esteem and confidence. This workshop will include an overview of core anatomy, and combine Yoga Tune Up ® myofascial self massage with targeted movement to strengthen and mobilize the centermost area of the body: our core.
