Upcoming Workshop

Saturday, July 14th from 11:00-1:00PM

Workshop will be at RIPLEY GRIER STUDIOS on the Upper West Side. I will send you the studio number two weeks prior to the workshop (or sooner – depending on your timing signing up).

Cost for each person $80 (this includes lightweight spine-post that will be provided for you that you can take home and use to practice).

Workshop Description

Did you know that just one of your body’s miracles is the function of your breathing to gently engage deep core muscles that then nourish your spine and your skeleton? You will also learn how to place your body in various positions in a way that is supported by gravity (and feels good!)

Restoring this synchronicity and your body’s relationship with gravity results in relief from structural pain and stress from intense physical output. Your body possesses innate abilities that allow you to physically, literally LET GO!


This workshop will give you new tools to help you:

  • Recover from and prevent injuries. In fact, you can make your recovery time, training time, and go back to your previous activities with more mastery & ease than before.

  • Access greater agility, adaptation to new things you need to do to improve, and generally give you more predictable command over the way you move.

  • Introduce a breathing technique that will also reduce stress and bring more oxygen into your body.

  • Learn an incredible strengthening AND recovery tool: the engagement of the core of your core, where your torso meets your limbs, using gentle, simple, coaxing.

  • We will wrap up the session with something called neurogenic tremoring, fascia release. You will feel like you had a massage from the inside.

There will be gentle, hands on guidance from AlignUp Founder/Instructor, Karen Engler. Any and all exercises can be modified to suit your body.

Yoga and loose fitting comfortable clothes and a yoga mat are required. Please also bring one or two malleable pillows from home.

This workshop is not appropriate for: People in chronic pain. Initially, you would benefit more from a private session (or two depending on your physiology).
