Yoga Healing with Tom

Tuesdays and Thursdays from  12 – 1pm

Do you struggle with back pain, or other pain that is affecting your daily activity? Have you been looking for a way to kick start an exercise regimen, but fearful that you don’t have the flexibility or strength to begin? This class may be the one that you’ve been looking for. Yoga Healing is especially suited for older and/or non “yoga bodies”.  Tom’s experience as a Reiki master, massage therapist, yoga instructor and former paramedic have shaped his method for guiding students through this class. He provides a combination of introspective Classic Hatha and Tantra asanas, active correction of postures, and modification of postures as needed to accommodate abnormal pathology. His knowledge of anatomy and massage training lends itself to a more hands on approach than normally taught. His interest as a Yoga instructor is to help others become more introspective, maintain or improve flexibility, minimize pain, and to foster students’ understanding of the marvel of their own bodies. Please wear clothes that you can easily move in.  You will not need shoes, but sneakers are fine if you prefer to wear them. You can also bring your own mat, or yoga props, but know that we do have them available for your convenience.
