As a bartender, I often experience the physical and emotional strain long shifts of service work can have on the body and the spirit. I am familiar with the throbbing from the bottom of my feet, the aching of my low back and the utter exhaustion from giving so much energy to so many people in one night.
As a yoga teacher, I know the healing power a consistent practice can have to restore the body from this type of work.
Barback Yoga is a gentle class specifically designed to support anyone working in professions with high physical demands and is accessible during times when most service workers are able to participate.
No prior yoga experience is necessary.
Barback Yoga offers two types of classes:
~A gentle weekly yoga class: focusing on stretching and strengthening to release tension and tightness in the body, so you can move more freely throughout your day.
~A monthly restorative class: This is all about relaxation. You will spend the entire class on the floor propped up in comfy reclined postures while massage therapists offer hands-on-healing massage. They will focus on specific areas affected by service work like the feet, legs and lower back.
