ECHOyoga Workshops

ECHOyoga: Empowerment, Care, Health, and Oneness

Yoga is a practice than promotes wellness when done regularly. However, even non-yoga practitioners can learn new therapies for the body. ECHOyoga's November therapy workshops, all run by certified teachers, focus on relieving pain such as Yoga Therapy for Low Back Pain, a one-off workshop on November 19 for those suffering from lower back stiffness and pain. The workshop, to be taught by Avril Rodriguez, will introduce a sequence of poses to slowly and gently relax sore back muscles, hip pain, knee injuries, low back strain, and ankle sprains. 

Yoga's restorative poses likewise help seniors strengthen their bones and balance. Marilen Elizalde will lead a three-session workshop as a Senior's Introduction to Yoga on November 7, 14, and 21. This workshop will allow golden seniors to do simple yoga sequences daily for better health and mobility.

ECHOyoga balances all physical movement workshops with inner work through two course offerings this month. A Past Life Group Regression will be facilitated by Jeannie Javelosa on November 5. At a Crossroad: Making Sense of Your Life Journey, an reflective inner awareness workshop using creativity techniques to make sense of life pointers and clues to direct you to your life's work, will be facilitated by Vicky Ortega on November 26.

Life is a maze of intersecting paths--crossroads that raise the question Where am I going? There are pointers and clues but, to see them, we have to shift our focus and awareness from the outside to the inside--to our inner intelligence and memory.
