Move your Prana. Embrace the vis.


Functional+Movement_Square.jpg

Sedentary lifestyle, repetitive movement, and the new standard American posture (think hunched over a computer, phone, steering wheel, etc) are impacting health and mobility. Some potential symptoms from these actions include chronic tension in the back and shoulders, pain in the hip flexors and hamstrings, and even lack of flexion in the wrists from computer or phone use. Can you relate?

This six-week series combines the mindfulness of yoga through pranayama (breath control), asana (postures), and meditation with functional movement. Functional

movements like jumping, balancing, and lifting or carrying objects translate to more ease in everyday life. Combining these approaches will encourage mobility, longevity, and sustainability in your body and help foster the creation of a movement rich lifestyle.

KIND WORDS:

"I am so grateful I took Dr. Kerr's anxiety workshop. She was so helpful in giving a balanced and broad perspective on anxiety. I have many more tools in my toolbox on how to deal with anxiety. I love that she is a naturopath and a yoga teacher - such a balanced perspective that is backed by true experience and knowledge. I plan to take more workshops from Dr. Kerr. She is a gentle, loving teacher." - SR
