All the yoga: Jackson, WY
I am pleased and proud to announce that I will be out of the office for most of April. I will be in Jackson, WY for ten days at Teton Yoga Shala, completing the first half of my yoga teacher training.
I came across the studio a couple of years ago when Greg and I were on our way to Sun Valley, and I was pleased with the classes I took there and the knowledge that was evident. I have another trip planned for October, which means that I will be fully certified to teach yoga by the end of fall.
I don't know if I will be teaching any classes, but I plan to combine it with my massage practice to better help my clients. My goal is to have someone come in for massage, then roll right on in to a yoga session afterwards. Muscle tissue and fascia will be looser and more pliable, allowing me to perform more effective assisted stretches and muscle activation techniques. I will also be able to offer short, fully customized routines with my clients that they may videotape and take home.
All the yoga, pt II: Grand Junction
At the end of my travel, I will spend another four days in Grand Junction for a yoga immersion weekend under the guidance and tutelage of my friend Jamie Elmer. For those of you who have been following along, this will make the fourth anatomy-and-alignment based immersion workshop I've taken with Jamie.
She's a former ballet dancer, a fellow anatomy geek, and an all-around badass chica. I highly recommend her online yoga subscription for anyone who desires a home practice. Check out her YouTubechannel for an idea of what her teaching is like.
But don't panic!
Never fear, Chelsea will still be here to tend to your massage needs, whether that's ACL surgery, gardening, or getting back to the summer triumvirate of biking, hiking, and golf. I've also got a couple of days open at the beginning and end of April, so make your appointment now.
