Workshop canceled due to low registration
While yoga is known for its stress reduction techniques and practices that improve strength, flexibility and balance, a typical yoga class that includes getting up and down from the floor can be inaccessible for many people. Learning to integrate a chair into one's practice provides empowerment for those recovering from injury, managing chronic conditions like arthritis, herniated/degenerative discs, joint pain/replacements, compromised auto-immune systems or those refortifying a body that is aging.
Join Linda Pruce who learned first hand to navigate yoga classes and enriched her practice with the use of the chair and other props after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). In this workshop, you will learn how to safely modify yoga poses and use a variety of props when taking public classes. Experience the benefits of yoga in your life and be inspired to add yoga to your wellness and therapeutic regimen.
Linda Pruce earned her registered yoga teacher (RYT-200) certification in 2009 and pursued her Trauma Informed Yoga certification in 2017. Diagnosed with MS in 2009, she very much enjoys teaching yogis whom are mobility impaired due to aging, chronic conditions or injuries. Because of her work as a Speech Language Pathologist, Linda loves to combine yoga and communication in workshops such as Yoga for Public Speaking & Yoga for Social Confidence as well as facilitate women empowerment events. Her passion is to help yogis use props to deepen their practice and trauma-informed yoga techniques to care for their nervous systems and improve their capacity for health and wellness. She has two adult daughters and lives in Frederick, MD with her husband Gary. When not teaching yoga she likes to post her thoughts about health, yoga and life online at: www.LindaBP.com
