You can use your pass to attend these classes.  


Last week in Yoga for Spine Health at Beloved Yoga (Fridays at 10 a.m. ) Maryam Ovissi shared the wisdom of "Space & em(Brace)". Often we are told when we pick things up to bend at the knees, to breath to keep the core engaged....well a major teaching is left out.... first create SPACE in the lumbar, honoring it's curve and them BRACE and stabilize the spine to load bear.... We did a majority of these practices today in class. Next week we will continue with expanding this wisdom!

This is a teaching expanded from the wisdom of Stuart McGill, a professor and director of the Spine Biomechanics Laboratory at the University of Waterloo.

* you will see hands on assisting from Dr. McGill. We do not do this types of assist at Beloved Yoga.
