March's Guest Speaker: Patricia Videgain - Certified Yoga Therapist will introduce her
"Women Embodiment Series: The Pelvis"
The class will focus on experiencing anatomical connections, asanas and breathing techniques.
We will take an intimate look at the bone structure, muscles and organs that are housed in this important space.
The goal of this 5-class series is to learn about and connect to the pelvic region with a combination of lecture, discussion, and movement practice. We will take an intimate look at the bone structure, muscles and organs that are housed in this important space. The class will focus on experiencing anatomical connections, asanas, and breathing techniques.
"Even though a woman who practices yoga postures may have a flexible body, she may still have the tendency to hold her body and postures incorrectly. This disturbs her organic body. When asanas and pranayamas are done with accuracy in both “doing the posture correctly” as well as “feeling the body” the mudras and bandhas can happen naturally."
-Dr. Geeta Iyengar.

Leslie will speak about "Bone Health"
"I’m Leslie Weinman, functional nutritionist and clinical herbalist. I am very excited to be leading (coordinating) the Wellness Salon and helping to support our community with their health. In my practice I always look to find the root cause of any imbalance in order to give the body the nourishment it needs through diet, lifestyle and herbal medicine. The body will naturally heal itself when given the proper support. I look forward to meeting you!"
