Rose combines traditional yoga with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) techniques to understand the relationship between breath, movement and enteroception  (inner awareness). Observing how these come together in practice can influence the Autonomic Nervous System.  This 75-minute class offers meditation, pranayama and movement practices to increase Vagal Tone, widen the Window of Tolerance and effect neuroplastic and behavioral changes that allow individuals to have greater control over their responses to the challenges and struggles of life.

In this practical workshop, you will learn specific actions you can take to treat and “bulletproof” the structures of your spine!

The spine is an intricate anatomical structure functioning to flex, extend and rotate the trunk. There are many different injuries that can occur along the tissues of the spine. Common offenders include ligament sprain, muscle strain, and disc herniation. These injuries alone make back pain an incredibly prevalent and disabling health concern. There are many exercises and modalities we can use to help decrease pain/dysfunction and improve our condition. This workshop will break down several common causes of back pain and how to best integrate safe and effective exercises into prevention and treatment.

  • Educate, but not overwhelm you
  • Empower you to take charge of your health

Trainer Talks: Exercise as a lifestyle for Mental Health Resiliency (Rady Personal Trainer Scott)

Thursday June 2       7:00 p.m.

Kroft Boardroom

Members – FREE   Non-members $10

The connection between healthy mind and healthy body has never been as important to recognize as it is right now.

Respecting one’s mental health and appreciating the benefits gained from treating ourselves as we deserve will reap huge rewards going forward.

Scott’s experience in physically demanding work, combined with real world mental health (PTSD) recovery/management strategies may provide previously untapped insight into personal well being.

This is a highly interactive session that relies on questions of the presenter.  Scott’s goal is to share as much learned experience in a raw and sometimes emotional manner.  He is passionate about walking the talk and modelling a warrior (survivor) mentality.
