Tuesday, January 3rd: Hips and Spine Re-Balanced
Props needed: 2 indigo or 2 black YBR® balls

Release tension and holding patterns in the entire spine from the tailbone to the skull. Work the gluteals and hip joints, the hamstrings, and the front of the pelvis to stimulate a letting go of the adductors and psoas. Great for back and neck issues, as well as tight hip flexors and hamstrings.

Tuesday, January 17th: Upper Back and Neck Freedom
Props needed: Silver, black and gold (sub with pearl) YBR® balls

Unravel chronic holding patterns which cause the thoracic spine to round. Lift the sternum bone, go deep into the pectoral attachments, armpit adhesions, ribs and shoulder blades. Free the front rib cage to lift, allowing the neck to reposition and find ease.

Tuesday, February 7th: Target the Hips and Legs
Props needed: 2 indigo or 2 black, and any other YBR® ball

Work the sides of the legs intensely on the IT bands, adductors, and calves. Experience deep outer hip and buttock muscle release. Lengthen both quadriceps and hamstrings. Work slowly and deeply to free hips, iliotibial bands, knees, and unravel leg strain all the way to the feet.
To register for this workshop, CLICK HERE.

Tuesday, February 21st: Deeper Exploration of the Hip Joint
Props needed: 1 black YBR® ball

Focus the black ball deeper into the ball-socket joint to create greater space around the hip. Intensely stimulating bone, releases muscles essential to balance and align the hips, creating power and ease to movement. The anterior part of this routine is extremely important for those who spend a lot of time sitting.

Tuesday, March 7th: Core Strength & Whole Body Stretches
Props needed: a gold and a silver (or sub pearl) YBR® ball
Tone the abdominals, back core muscles, buttock, and pelvic floor. Gravity and a sedentary lifestyle can cause abdominal organs to drop into the lower abdomen, weakening it and consequently also the lower back. Lift the organs back into place, release the anterior spine and the psoas muscle, taking pressure out of the low back. Use the balls as supports, stretching aides and alignment props to foster greater awareness of the body.
