About the event
Join Lisa Garside, owner of Ohana Yoga for this specialty workshop. An opportunity to gain knowledge, understanding and find a practice that works for you. Whether your a yoga teacher or a yoga student this is a workshop that will make valuable information available to you.
Many women and men live with pelvic floor problems as it presents as something differently. We think it is normal.
The job of the pelvic floor is to support the spine, hold up organs and carry the torso: quite an important job. It is a set of muscles that are often misunderstood and can cause us a lot of problems if the muscles are not working properly or are damaged from childbirth.
We want it strong and capable like any other muscle in the body, and end up working it in ways that can be counter productive and actually weaken the area. A lot of times people suffer in silence with problems that are private, and try to figure it out on their own, not knowing where to begin, and trying things that are not necessarily helpful in the long run. This class is to educate and empower with simple precise information where you will know what is going on with an internal area that we cannot see. We will discuss its normal functioning, move through ways to access these muscles, and go through any questions you may have, in a safe secure place.
Investment in your pelvic health: $40 Includes take home material
Lisa is a certified yoga instructor with over 20 years combined experience in both teaching and practice.
She began to explore yoga after a car accident left her with multiple pains, nerve damage and weight gain. Having tried many other conventional methods of coping, nothing seemed to help her daily headaches and focus. After taking one yoga class, she was immediately rid of that days headache. It helped her cope with the day-to-day limited mobility. After a couple of years she was able to fully comprehend how yoga can help anyone and everyone.
The slow transition, into this lovely science, all happened while she worked in the corporate world for 8 years. Having experience in the work force stresses and long work hours allows her to bring understanding and compassion into her teaching.
She was able to practice yoga through her 3 pregnancies, and thankfully, teach through the last. This brings a whole new knowledge and focus on what is needed during pregnancy and the benefits of a good bond during gestation. She has taught prenatal yoga since 2005.
She uses intuition as soon as a student arrives in the room, guiding students through brain mapping of isolated areas, activation, mobilization, and then adding strength. She likes to make the nervous system robust, and create a safe space for growth. Due to these aspects class is different each and every time, crafted to the unique needs of the students showing up as well as taking into account the weather, the community/world events, as well as the time of year.
