Happenings in the ‘hood’

Some exciting things are happening in my new neighborhood, so I thought I would share! will refrainfast cash advance bad credit Last night was the Opening Party for Athleta DC in Georgetown.  Athleta sells fabulous women’s active wear, workout clothing and accessories.  The products have only been available via catalog until November 2nd, when they opened the first store in L.A. The second store opened in Philadelphia on Nov.9th and then last night was the Private Shopping Event in Georgetown. (Thanks to Gina from Athleta DC who sent me an invite!)  The store is beautiful and right in the middle of everything on M Street.  The event was packed, with ladies changing in the aisles to try stuff on instead of standing in line for the waiting room!  Tuxedo clad servers carried drinks and appetizers and credit cards were being pulled out left and right – these ladies were there to SHOP!  I decided to shop from my computer at home later, but really went there to soak up the vibe and meet Gina.  She has done a fantastic job of getting the store opened and getting the word out to everyone involved in health and fitness in the DC area.  I plan to get involved at the M Street location teaching some workshops, so I will keep everyone posted! I am also really excited to announce that Prana Physical Therapy is co-sponsoring a workshop at Gold’s Gym, Alexandria on December 3-4.  My friend Mike Fitch of Global Bodyweight Training is bringing his Animal Flow Workout to the D.C. area.

When clients are taken passively through the stretches, they are able to relax and let go of the frustration caused by their body no longer moving like it used to. The gentle, rhythmic motions reduce tone and muscle tension, allowing clients to enjoy the therapeutic movement provided by this form of massage. Most clients find the sessions to be an oasis of calm in their tumultuous lives. Thai Yoga Therapy is often referred to as a “meditation of compassion,” 1 and when done in the spirit of metta it is a beautiful dance between giver and receiver. Case Study In order to best illustrate the use of Thai Yoga Therapy as an adjunct treatment for neurological clients a case study is presented.
