The events of everyday living like working on your computer or interacting with your mobile phone can be enough to leave your neck and shoulders feeling tense and knotted.

In this Yoga Tune Up® workshop we will explore our shoulder and neck mobility through therapeutic ball rolling, stretching and strengthening exercises to create spaciousness in the shoulder joints, increase your range of movement and show you how to align yourself for better posture.

You will leave with strategies to help your shoulders be stronger, more flexible, and more balanced in your yoga postures and in your daily activities.

Join Frances for a special Jivamukti class for a very personal cause!

Frances and her 2 sisters have all been affected by Lupus, an autoimmune disease that can manifest in various different ways in different people. Though there is currently no cure for Lupus there have been many advances through research and clinical studies that have made it possible for those affected by the illness to continue to live a full, normal, healthy life. 

The month of May is Lupus awareness month. For every yogi who attends this class the studio will donate $5 to the Singer Family Lupus Fund at the Montreal General Hospital and all donations are matched by hospital.

All that is necessary to make a contribution is your presence (all class passes and memberships are apply). Any additional donations are welcome and appreciated, but not required.
