Integrated Somatic Yoga (ISY),created by Lynne Jacobs, is a unique blend of gentle yoga, somatic movement therapy and mindful meditation. This unique therapeutic approach releases chronic tension, improves muscular imbalances, increases range of motion, proprioception and coordination, improves posture, and increases ones overall sense of mind-body well-being. Lynne has developed this style of yoga from her many years of training and working with a wide variety of students in her yoga therapy practice. She has found it to be beneficial and appropriate for all students regardless of age or physical abilities.
For this workshop, Lynne will explore practices that release the lower back, mid back, shoulders and neck along with improving overall proprioception. There will also be a brief discussion on the history of this practice and why it is so beneficial for all types of students. Join Lynne for a wonderful afternoon of mind/body wellness!
