Lynn on WXYZ News Discussing the Upcoming Yoga-Thon

Structural Healing (from the Macomb Daily)

By Maryanne Kocis MacLeod, Macomb Daily Staff Writer

A devastating 2005 car accident put Clinton Township resident Rhoda Flowers in the hospital for three months with a shattered pelvis and broken jaw.

When she was released, Flowers could not walk and was unable to stand longer than a few minutes.

Now, after 2-1/2 years of weekly sessions with Bloomfield Hills yoga therapist Lynn Medow, Flowers can not only stand and walk better than ever, she can balance on one leg like an expert yogi.

"My first sessions with Lynn were long and painful and I would shake, wanting to give up," said Flowers, a former exotic dancer. "Lynn would hold my hands steady and she never gave up on me.

Yoga By Design, One Soul at a Time

A lifelong dancer and athlete, Lynn Medow always considered herself fit. But the word took on new meaning for her both physically and spiritually when she set foot on a yoga mat at age 40.

"I always knew I wanted to do something that I could do physically for the rest of my life" said Medow, of Bloomfield Township. "I got on the mat and felt like I was home."

Nearly 20 years later, she's still sharing her expertise in the ancient Indian practice of yoga through workshops, one-on-one therapy sessions and an instructional video.

Safe Yoga Workshop June 24-26, 2011

The Foundation: Friday 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Strong, supple, aligned feet make for a solid foundation for the rest of the body. We will explore these amazing mas- terpieces that support us while experiencing how mis- aligned feet manifest in imbalance. Feeling securely con- nected to the earth through your feet supports your feel- ings of being grounded and secure in your life.

Flexibility: Saturday 9:30am to 12:30pm

Knees that track properly, hips that are squared and a low back that is free of discomfort enables one to travel with ease through life. A study of the knee joint and the most optimal alignment for your body affords the hips and low back the freedom to line up and go with the flow. Habit patterns which can damage the knees, hips and low back will be identified, and simple suggestions for shifting and re-aligning will be offered.

Stability: Saturday 2:30pm - 4:30pm

Rounded shoulders accompanied by a head thrust causes tension in the upper back and neck and can be felt all the way to the fingertips. When the heart is open, the chest lifted and the head set squarely atop the neck, one is sta- ble, secure and free. Moving forward in life can occur with no self-imposed roadblocks, and opportunities can be taken advantage of whenever they present themselves.

Integration: Sunday 9:30 to 12:30pm

This flow class is designed to integrate and assimilate the teachings offered in the first three sessions. The practice truly begins when one steps off the mat and into life. Ap- plying safe posture and alignment to living the philosophi- cal and spiritual precepts of yoga allows opportunity for a more tranquil journey. This session will strive to offer tips and tricks for doing just so.

Sign up for individual sessions for $40 or the full weekend package for $150.
