2. Restorative Savasana
In a culture focused around doing more, having more, and getting more, it is crucial to learn and practice simple techniques to help reduce stress and anxiety. Savasana, or basic relaxation pose, is one of the most important and ancient poses in yoga.

3. Yin Yoga for Wrists & Feet
In this yin yoga class you will focus on stretching your wrists and feet. Give your extremities some much needed love and attention to improve circulation and ease any pain you may be feeling from working at a computer all day. By holding each pose for an extended period of time, you'll feel more lasting relief after class.
4. Supported Restorative Backbends
This class is all about supported backbends. Bending forward is a large part of our daily routine. We lean forward and sit at the computer facing forward. These restorative poses, guided by Judith Hanson Lasater, will help undo the constant habit of this action to help you relieve tension and reduce pain. Backbends do not need to be strenuous or intense in order to feel the benefits. These poses are more about opening rather than stretching.

Avoiding hyperextension is critical, and strengthening the muscles around the knee joint will aid in preventative muscle engagement to keep you from overextending the joint structure.
