Join physiotherapist and yoga teacher Reanna Montopoli for a 3-part series of workshops focused on improving strength, alignment and flexibility.  Reanna will share her knowledge of anatomy, as well as common areas of weakness and tightness.  Participants will be guided through therapeutic exercises to strengthen, lengthen, and improve movement patterns which can help reduce their risk of injury.  We will also move through a yoga asana practice with a focus on a particular region of the body, with guidance in optimal alignment and muscle activation.  Class will finish with guided meditation for integration and relaxation. This is a great series for yoga practitioners, athletes, and anyone interested in learning a bit more about their body, and how to keep their muscles and joints healthy.

BIO: Reanna completed the 200hr Amrita Yoga Teacher Training in the spring of 2017, after eleven years of practicing yoga.  Reanna is also a registered physiotherapist, with over seven years’ experience working in musculoskeletal clinical practice.  She sees physiotherapy and yoga as very complementary, and enjoys integrating both disciplines to benefit her students.  She believes strongly in the power of exercise for supporting a healthy body and optimal well-being.  In addition to the physical benefits of yoga, Reanna has a profound appreciation for the deeper practices of yoga, such as pranayama, meditation, ethics and yoga philosophy.  She has seen the benefits of these practices in her own life, and is passionate about sharing them with others.
