The therapeutic yoga series offers a unique approach to yoga and is designed specifically for individuals seeking relief from specific patterns of dis-ease in both mind and body. Unlike regular group yoga classes at studios or gyms, this series focuses on creating ease and comfort by targeting specific areas of the body or patterns of the mind.
Each series consists of four sessions, each lasting one hour. Whether you're a seasoned yogi or completely new to yoga, all levels of experience (or no experience at all) are welcome to participate. The gentle exercises can be easily practiced in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Series 1 - Reducing Low Back & Hip Pain: Thursdays, April 11, 18, 25, and May 2; Noon - 1 p.m. Central
Series 2 - Reducing Upper Back and Neck Pain: Thursdays, July 18, 25, August 1 and 8; 9:30 - 10:30 a.m. Central
Series 3 - Pacifying Insomnia & Anxiety: Thursdays, October 3, 10, 17, and 24; 6 to 7 p.m. Central
All sessions take place live, online via Zoom. You are welcome to attend one or all three series. Recordings will be made available to registrants for one month, for those who would like to revisit the sessions or who are unable to attend the live sessions. Please note that registration will close one hour prior to the series' start time to ensure that you receive all of the necessary logistical details.
Say goodbye to the stress of traveling or comparing yourself to others. In the therapeutic yoga series, the focus is solely on your own wellbeing. Take a deep breath, tune into your body, and regulate your own nervous system. Join us and experience the power of mindful breathing and conscious connection.
Sliding Scale Pricing
The Earl E. Bakken Center for Spirituality & Healing is deeply committed to the wellbeing and flourishing of all communities. In order to make our programming accessible to a broader audience, we have implemented a sliding scale fee structure for these online series.
The suggested registration fee is $60 per series. We also offer a scholarship rate ($40) and supporter rate ($80) for those who would like to support others attending at the scholarship rate.
We do not want cost to be a barrier to participating in our programming. If you are not able to pay one of the listed registration fees, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will arrange for you to participate in the program at a reduced fee or at no cost.
The therapeutic yoga series includes skill training or practice in relaxation and meditation methods as well as gentle stretching (yoga) exercises. I understand that if for any reason I am unable to, or think it unwise to engage in these techniques and exercises, I am under no obligation to engage in these techniques nor will I hold the University of Minnesota liable for any injury sustained from these exercises.
This series is non-refundable. Exceptions to this policy are granted for extenuating circumstances. For more information, participants should reach out to the Bakken Center's community relations office (email@example.com, 612-625-8164).
