Workshops at Ballard Health Club
Here at BHC we are always looking at ways to expose our members to new and different class experiences. Whether it's an opportunity to learn something you never would have considered, or a chance to dig deeper into your existing practice, workshops are here for you! Take a look at our upcoming offerings below.
November 15th 2:00-4:00 PM
In this 2 hour workshop we will take a look at the basic anatomy and physiology of back pain to help uncover common unhealthy habits. We will practice healthy alignment and movement patterns (sitting, standing and walking). We will learn gentle stretching and strengthening exercises designed to increase support and balance to the structures of the spine and pelvis, legs and feet. We will practice self-massage techniques that help to relieve pain, increase circulation, speed healing, and build a better mental embody map. You will leave with a well-stocked tool kit of back care savvy that will help you to solve current issues and avoid future problems.
Forsooth Restorative Yoga and Poetry:
December 13th 1:00-3:00 PM
and Jonathan Swerdick
Join yoga instructor Elliott Tillmann with poet Jonathan Swerdlick for a one and a half hour restorative yoga workshop featuring poetry read aloud. Begin with very gentle warm up movements and finish with a long series of restorative yoga poses that take full advantage of blankets, blocks and bolsters. Let your body be quieted while your mind is opened by works of poetry both great and small from around the world. This workshop is accessible to all ages and abilities, including those healing from injury. Come to linger quietly for a few moments in each pose and savor the simple sweetness of restoration, poetry, and yoga.
Cost to attend workshops: $20 for members, $30 for non-members ($20 plus $10 drop-in fee at time of workshop).
