Standing Your Ground
A Workshop for Happy and Healthy Feet
 
Monday April 10, 6:00-8:00 pm
 
Healthy feet are essential for overall strength and stability. They help us to enjoy more easeful movement, less tension, and enhanced athletic performance. Over time, a disruption to the foot's natural weight-bearing pattern can lead to ankle, knee or hip pain, diminished efficiency when walking or running, and common foot maladies such as bunions and plantar fasciitis. Learning to strengthen and organize the feet is also an important tool for graceful aging.  It's never too early to begin building more power and awareness in your feet!

In this workshop we will:
-learn exercises to soften and "wake up" the feet
-assess current alignment patterns
-learn about the bones of the feet and how to best utilize their structure for maximum support
-strengthen supporting muscles
-apply new patterns to walking and some common yoga postures
-learn self-message techniques using sesame oil
(please bring a pair of old socks!)

Friends of Shelburne Falls Yoga
A new membership period begins March 1.
 
Two years ago, amidst concern about keeping pace with the rising costs of operating our beautiful space, a group of students joined together to create the Friends of Shelburne Falls Yoga.  This membership program was designed to ensure that our yoga community remains vibrant and sustainable for many years to come. Membership is available at a range of levels and includes  volunteer options. Seasonal gatherings, members' workshops, and discounts on individual yoga sessions with Kate are just some of the benefits of being a Friend of Shelburne Falls Yoga.
 
The Friends of Shelburne Falls Yoga  membership program has contributed greatly to the success of our studio community in recent years. Many thanks to all those who have participated.  Please let us know if you would like to join us!
 
More information is available at the studio. Contact Kate with questions or to join.
