Upcoming Workshop

Saturday, June 23rd from 11:00AM-1:00PM

Workshops 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?

Restoring this synchronicity results in relief from structural pain and emotional tension. Your body possesses innate abilities that allow you to physically, literally LET GO!

  • You will learn how to place your body in various positions in a way that is supported by gravity (and feels good!) This will help with sleep (& if time sitting) positions as well.

  • You will learn a simple breathing exercise that will soften your muscles leading into…

  • 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.
  • People who’ve experienced trauma they haven’t explored with a therapist for less than 6 months.
  • People in addiction recovery for less than 6 months.

If you fall into one of these groups, you would benefit more from 2-3 private sessions initially.
