Yoga for People Who Work on Their Feet

I thought some of you hard-working industry types would like to know about this special yoga class on Mondays at The Yoga Loft with instructor Karen Lo. Here’s more: “Although our bodies have made some amazing adaptations to allow us to stand on two feet, standing up for 8-10 hours a day at work still take their toll. And let’s be honest, how many of us are really going home and doing what we need to alleviate the effects of this type of workday? Yoga offers a variety of benefits to those looking for relief from common problems related to working on your feet such as lower back pain, tight shoulders, tight neck and upper back, aching feet, and tight hips and hamstrings. This class is geared specifically for those who work in restaurants, retail, or anyone else who spend a majority of their work week on their feet, bending down, bearing weight, and involved in repetitive motion. This class will address these varied issues in a way that will allow practitioners of varying levels to reap the benefits of yoga. The restorative component of this class will energize and calm the nerves so that you’ll have the strength to stand another day.”

Class is Mondays at 11:15am; $10 drop-in fee (you can rent a mat at the studio). 321 Divisadero St. at Page.
