Support from the Ground Up – Workshop!

My good friend and mentor, Dawn Ross, and I will be facilitating this workshop together! 

This 3 hour workshop cultivates support from the ground up with playful, partner and prop explorations and core work that works from the inside out. Starting with the feet you’ll learn how to use the support of the ground and space within you to evoke posture that is effortless at any age. This workshop is for you if you have high over active arches, flat underactive arches, ankle stiffness, calf tightness, tailbone/sacral tenderness or pain or catch yourself throughout the day editing or correcting your posture by standing up tall and pulling your belly in and shoulders down.
October 22, 9:30-12:30   Support From the Ground Up

TLC for the Neck, Shoulders and Upper Back – Workshop!
Spend 3 hours pampering your neck, shoulders and upper back with self care tools that release tension and realign the spine. Learn how the shoulders and spine work in harmony and synchrony with each other. How to identify and address when this natural rhythm gets disrupted and ways to gently bring back harmony. If you hold stress or have tension in the shoulders and or neck, experience wrist or elbow tenderness or pain or notice you are developing a more head forward posture this workshop will support you to discover what else is possible.  October 22 2:30-5:30pm

What People are Saying:

I found Sue about a year and a half ago by accident…or perhaps not…driving by a sign in my neighbourhood advertising “Therapeutic Yoga” and something told me to give it a try. It seemed to have come at the perfect time since I had recently started physiotherapy for a shoulder injury that had been limiting me for over ten years and had finally came to a point of needing to be dealt with. Regular massages and chiropractor treatments were no longer managing the pain in my neck and shoulder and I didn’t want to resort to the painkillers I was prescribed. I was suddenly sidelined for the first time in my life and no longer able to play sports, kick box, strength train or do “regular yoga”…all things that I loved doing. I was soon referred to a specialist and awaiting a proper diagnosis which took over 6 months.  
My first therapeutic yoga session with Sue was more about discovering self-acceptance then the about the restorative yoga poses…although they were great! Sue understood how frustrated I was with my limitations having experienced injuries herself. Her patience and understanding was so important for me since I needed to first surrender to where I was physically, and accept it, before I could really start my journey of rehabilitation. This past spring I had the tear in my shoulder repaired and started back with Sue as soon as I got the green light from my specialist. I have continued to take Sue’s therapeutic sessions throughout as well as private sessions where Sue has created programs for me to help me continue my rehab and reteach my body how to move “purely” since it has been over compensating for over a decade..which is no small feat 😉 Sue is always up for a challenge and continually learning new techniques to help her clients. I love her passion and dedication. She truly is doing this from the heart. I am very excited to say I had a major breakthrough in my private session last week where after holding a new pose my shoulder actually dropped into a noticeably “different” position. I think we were both in a bit of shock at how dramatic it was. It felt like a light at the end of a long tunnel and reaffirmed that this is exactly where I need to be to continue my rehabilitative journey. I happened to noticed a Rumi quote on Sue’s whiteboard that same day which read something like “We don’t meet people by accident…they are meant to cross our path for a reason”.  So blessed to have crossed Sue’s path.   C.L.

I am so thankful to be able to share my passion of Therapeutic Yoga, either in private therapeutic sessions, in my group classes or in workshops, with each of you.

Many blessings,
