This workshop will offer an opportunity to deeply unwind via nourishing, slow-moving yoga poses, myofasical release, and self-massage. This week we will focus on the lower body: hips, glutes, legs, and feet, using our greatest tool: the breath! Let us practice softening, yielding, surrendering, being-with, and releasing.


You will need a tennis ball or something similar, like a lacrosse ball or a pet ball. Alternatively, you can use a food item stand-in, like a potato or an onion (these can be placed in a sock). Body oil or muscle salve can be a nice addition, but is not required.

This rendition of Tension Tending will happen Sunday, May 24, 2020, 10-11:30 am PDT, via Zoom. Workshop will be offered at a sliding scale $20-$35. If this is beyond your reach at the moment, contact me directly and let's talk. You can sign up ahead of time by: 1) Sending me an email at bodyceremony@gmail.com. 2) Sending payment through Paypal by clicking here, or via Venmo: @Allison-Riegel. Look forward to having you!
