Leave the Tension:

Yoga workshop for the upper back, neck and shoulders

Saturday, 26 January 2019 – 14:00-17:00

Do you suffer with tension in your upper back, neck or shoulders? Have you had a previously neck injury, or feel that maybe you hold stress in your body? This workshop is an ideal way to relieve tension, stress and tightness but also to understand some of the underlying causes.

Hazel is a Chiropractor and has treated thousands of patients with symptoms of tension and stress. In this workshop Hazel has combined her knowledge as a Chiropractor and Yoga instructor to deliver an informative and interactive session suitable for all students, including those with little previous yoga experience.

The workshop will be an informal and relaxed space where students will have an opportunity to understand how tension is produced in this area and helpful stretches, exercises and movements that you will be able to continue at home. Hazel will provide hands on feedback and facilitations during the session and will be available after the workshop for any advice needed for particular injuries and problems. Of course there will also be complimentary tea and cake afterwards. If you require any further information then do please contact Hazel, she would be more than happy to answer any questions.
