VIRTUAL Workshop: Free Your Feet ($30)

Members: join for free on the Events tab in Namastream! No booking needed here. Everyone else: do book here!

Most adults have lost healthy mobility in their feet from a lifetime of wearing conventional footwear and lack of natural movement. This can cause issues in your ankles, knees, hips, and back. But, your feet are the foundation for whole body alignment and healthy movement patterns. One quarter of all your bones and joints are in your feet - they are exquisitely designed for weight-bearing and balance when they are moving properly.

In this workshop you'll learn key ways to free your feet through exercises and self-massage techniques that restore flexibility and strength. You’ll also learn how to make well-informed choices about footwear, including how and why you might transition to minimalist shoes.

Workshop includes PDF handout with exercises and footwear suggestions, and a 2-week video replay. Anyone with feet can benefit from this workshop; no yoga experience necessary.

A computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet connection are required to participate. We will email you the class link about half an hour before class.

VIRTUAL Workshop: How to Actually Open Your Hips ($30)

Want to learn how to open your hips? Hint: It’s not *pigeon pose.

In this workshop, you’ll learn key exercises for expanding the capacity of your hips to move well and be strong. Get ready for targeted and sweaty mobility work, all aimed at making your sitting, squatting, walking and daily living a lot more easeful.

Leslie will be drawing upon her education in Functional Range Conditioning, Kinstretch, and Yoga anatomy, and her personal experience with strength conditioning and years of floor-sitting. She’ll share important concepts that explain why passive stretching isn’t the whole story when it comes to creating usable range of motion.

*NOTE: While yoga has so much to offer, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with pigeon pose, yoga asanas (postures) weren’t necessarily designed with your joint health in mind. This workshop will be exploring techniques beyond yoga asanas that are specifically designed improving joint function.

Adventurous beginners welcome. Includes a PDF handout and 2-week video replay.

A computer, tablet, or smartphone and internet connection are required to participate. We will email you the class link about half an hour before class.
