If you love yoga, you will enjoy Essential Stretch! Below, I invite you to read about the differences between the two classes.
Years ago, I started ‘Essential Stretch’ at the gym where I worked. Why name the class ‘Essential Stretch?’ I wanted to use a naming convention that would attract those who disliked yoga but wanted to stretch. Little did those who disliked yoga know I taught them yoga poses. Success! When I left the corporate gym, my clients demanded I continue to teach ‘Essential Stretch.’
One of the participants experiences lower back pain. After employing props, yoga bricks and bolster, I rubbed doTERRAs Deep Blue Athletic Rub on her back all to ensure her comfort. Additionally, to offset her back pain, we did poses with slow moments.
Another class member, a medical doctor, works many hours. Side note, a client for many years, the doctor finds time to fit personal training and yoga sessions in her weekly schedule. She told me her hips were tight, so I incorporated hip openers into class. I gave both clients in attendance peppermint oil to soothe them.
Honestly, I feel so good about teaching yoga class because I know the class directly impacts my clients’, friends health. How do I know? For one, all of them made tremendous improvements in their flexibility. How else do I know? They come back every week.
