Multiple session packages are available.
Personal Best Bodywork offers an interdisciplinary approach to yoga. Whether you are an athlete, have back pain or injury, or just want to delve into your yoga practice, Personal Best has the experience you're looking for.
Yoga is very much about the whole person. We take a holistic approach by taking into consideration that pain may also be related to an emotional component, lifestyle, or physical movement patterns. Moving through yoga postures with breath is powerful for training the body to maintain a posture without restlessness while training the mind to stay present with the breath. Emphasis is placed on aligning the body for the stretch with focus on the breath, and focus on intention. When attention is given to intention and the strong breath, it builds an internal power and focus that crosses over to everything you do.
Techniques used to address your whole person include pranayama breathing, asanas (postures), and meditation. Classes are taught in private, duets or small three person group sessions, addressing specific health issues and modifying poses accordingly. Patients will leave with a better understanding of how their body should move in each pose and in activities of daily living. Private patient sessions may receive (if desired) specific instructions on a custom vinyasa for home practice and will change based on one's progression.

Runner's Yoga is geared towards those athletes who spend their time pounding the pavement and dirt, cycling through all of Colorado’s beautiful back roads and trails, or for those who partake in some other awesome activity that Colorado has to offer us!
You have a sport-specific tightness and the goal of this yoga practice isn’t to eliminate it but to keep it in balance so we can stay injury-free and fluid. The goal is NOT to be the most flexible person in the room, it’s to find the right alignment in your own body! Beyond that, this class gives you tools to remain calm, focused, and purposeful no matter what!
Current classes are in Boulder on FRIDAYS from 8:45-9:45AM at Runners Roost Boulder (629 South Broadway, Suite E Boulder, CO 80305 ). Only $10 and FREE coffee and bagels after class! Come check out one of our classes or take a private lesson!
