Event Schedule

6:00 – 8:00pm Working with Obstacles: How Yoga Philosophy Helps with Afflictions, Troubles, and Bullshit

Yoga practice is specifically designed to help us alleviate the pain and suffering we feel around our troubles and afflictions. Life comes at us fast and hard, and a solid yoga practice gives us a tool kit for healing and living well. What does that mean?

It means suffering less. But how?  For many of us, the tendencies that lead to our suffering are so ingrained that we aren’t even aware of them. Yoga systematically addresses how to work with our afflictions.

Come learn the ancient art of living well, suffering less, and feeling more. REGISTER

What is Functional Range Conditioning?
Functional range conditioning, or FRC, is a system of mobility training that emphasizes safe and effective joint health, movement, and performance. FRC uses a variety of exercises, sequences, and drills to improve mobility and strength at end range. In the context of a yoga practice, FRC can help increase flexibility, reduce pain, and improve range of motion.
Why is being stronger in yoga a good thing?

Being stronger in yoga is a great way to ensure that you are able to move through the poses safely and with control. Having more strength in your practice can also help you access more challenging poses with greater ease and stability. Additionally, strength training can help to reduce the risk of injury, making it a great addition to your yoga practice.

How can functional range conditioning help with my yoga practice?
Functional range conditioning can help to improve your yoga practice by increasing flexibility, range of motion, and strength at end range. Additionally, FRC can help to reduce the risk of pain and injury by teaching you how to move safely and effectively through your practice. By combining traditional yoga poses with functional range conditioning, you can gain a deeper understanding of how to move your body and experience the full benefits of your practice.
