This is different from the hula hooping you did as a kid–hooping uses large, weighted hoops that are easy to use.
LeeAnn Juday of Juday Performance Arts will teach you the basics of hooping and help you strengthen, tone, and have a great time!
You can hoop–regardless of your age, size, fitness level, or sense of rhythm! Space is limited so register early.
Workshop only $20, workshop & hoop rental – $25
Custom made hoops are available for purchase with pre-order before 5/18/13

This training prepares one with the skills necessary to offer a ‘Therapeutic Thai-Yoga Bodywork’ treatment. This course focuses on how to release individual muscles as opposed to learning a flowing sequence. There is a strong emphasis on various Thai and Osteopathic techniques, including Positional Release, and Muscle Energy Techniques. You will both learn how to use proper body dynamics and leverage to effortlessly apply pressure to sore muscles, energy lines & trigger points as well as learn how to bring your partner through a series of assisted hatha yoga stretches. This training compliments any other Yoga therapy or Thai massage course. After completing the course, all dedicated practitioners should be confidant to offer these new skills into their healing regimen. This course is more advanced then my ‘Foundational Flow’ Thai certification training. It is designed for those who are already comfortable moving and manipulating soft tissue. You will be working on the ground using your hands, knees, forearms, feet and elbows to apply compression and stretches. All students must be comfortable with yoga and have good agility moving their own bodies into various positions. This training is ideal for yoga teachers and other somatic therapists. It is a wonderful way to complement the massage or yoga that you are currently offering and provide yourself with a new skill and income stream. You will receive detailed handouts with pictures and descriptions to aid in your ongoing practice. This Course is approved by NCBTMB & Yoga Alliance for 12 hours of Continuing Education hours!
