Digital Detox Workshop with Julie Shaw

Are you aware of:
  • How many times in a day you check my phone for emails
    or texts?
  • How many times you check in an hour?
  • In the last 15 minutes?

 

Ask yourself sincerely:

  • Do I have a healthy relationship with my smart phone and
    other technology?
  • Am I in charge of my own behavior?
In the past several years, have you noticed:
  • An increased level of anxiety in your emotional state?
  • A sense of “brain fog”?
  • A lack of productivity?
  • Daytime fatigue or nighttime sleep problems?
  • A nagging sense that there is always something you are supposed
    to be doing?

Please join Juile for an eye-opening yoga class designed to help you identify, assess and improve your relationship to the technology in your life.

This 90-minute class is for ALL LEVELS of yoga experience and will include:

  • Movement:  Simple breath-centered yoga postures to reduce muscular tension and increase focus and energy
  • Breath:  Simple pranayama practices designed to alleviate stress and re-balance the nervous system
  • Meditation:  Simple, effective, personal meditation practice to transfor intention into habit

The Yin Practice is Quiet and Deeply Energetic.  This Special 90-Minute Class:
  • Is perfect for all yogis of any experience level
  • Will be mostly done on the floor
  • Focuses on the joints of the back, hips and legs
  • Brings health to the body’s deeper and less-elastic tissues (joints, tendons, and fascia)
  • Explores holding the poses for a long time…anywhere from 2-10 minutes
  • Taps into the “stuff” active yang practices can’t reach
  • Incorporates meditation as part of the practice
  • Offers a much-needed break from our fast-paced yang lifestyles 

Susie first came to yoga in 2008 after being diagnosed with scoliosis.  Like many practitioners, she discovered so much more than just physical growth on the mat. She completed her RYT200 at Onyx Yoga Studio under the guidance of Shannon Elliott. Susie's approach to teaching yoga is loving and supportive, and her classes encourage a sense of playful curiosity. Her asana instruction emphasizes openness to the experience of each pose, both physically and energetically. Modifications are always offered to help students meet themselves where they are. Susie believes that yoga is for every body and she strives to provide each practitioner with tools to deepen their personal practice, both on and off the mat.
