Bring SUP Yoga to Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park

PETITION: Allowing us to provide services to this lake will help us facilitate keeping business and economic impact within the city limits. SIGN to Bring SUP Yoga to Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park.

Sandra J. Shaw is a local pioneer. Earning her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from KU in 1970, when few women did! In 1971 she became the Director of Child & Family Services at the Bert Nash Center and then the CEO and spent nearly half a century building healthy spaces for the children and families of Douglas County. In her work had she many accomplishments. Expanding Bert Nash Employees from 9-200. She brought critical behavioral health services to the Lawrence schools, & in 1999 she brought to fruition the dream of a community health facility. SJS believed that mental health is FUNDAMENTAL to health.

Her development of the Alfred and Lena Cote Memorial Fund for Healthy Children & Families, funded most of the purchase of this land for a community health park. In 2013 the Lawrence City Commission accepted a donation of the 8-acre land from Bert Nash. Later the park was named after Sandra J. Shaw.

Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park is a nature park, a hardwood forest with trees of all ages and species. The park includes a 3 1/2 acre lake, a paved trail named The Outside for a Better Inside, it continues through Riverfront Park (Burcham) to Constant Park. The trail continues in Watson Park, where the Train sits. The amenities of Sandra J. Shaw include the lake, fishing dock, stocked fishing lake, the Outside for a Better Inside Trail, expansive green spaces with trees perfect for a picnic (a family favorite of ours), a shelter, and a lookout over the lake.

PETITION | Free State of Mind SUP Yoga, with a community of people (already) who want to bring Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga to Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park. Free State of Mind SUP Yoga offers a unique and safe socially distant activity for our community. We have requested permission from The City of Lawrence Park & Recreation Department & other Community Leaders to bring SUP Yoga into the city proper. Allowing us to provide services to this lake will help us facilitate keeping business and economic impact within city limits, and ultimately, provide an avenue to keep The Free State Yoga Festival within city limits as well.

I am a life-long yogi, who practiced many styles of yoga. I love how integrating pranayama (breath work) and asana (movement) release the body, leaving one practice feeling connected with self, surroundings and, free-of-mind.

Tennis Ball “Body Knot” Release & Stretch

A Tennis Ball Self-Massage releases “body knots”, increases the range of motion, & stretches to re-educate the muscles to rest at longer lengths.

Are you searching for ways to self-soothe aches and pains, gain range of motion in your joints, enhance performance in your sports activities???? Look no further than a tennis ball! The body is made up of multiple layers of connective tissue called, fascia. Fascia weaves and winds its way around every part of your body’s parts, connecting and separating you from head to toe. Self Myofascial Release Technique using tennis balls improves the slide and glide between the fascial layers which translates into ease of movement, the release of tension, and reduction of discomfort.

Release excessive tension in 45 Minutes of Self-Massage & Stretch. The combination of movements re-educates the unknotted muscles to rest at longer lengths.

Props: 1 or 2 Tennis Balls & Strap (towel, necktie, cloth belt).

Yoga for Sciatica

Yoga can soothe sciatica pain by lowering backaches intensity, reducing the need for medication pain & creates more low back flexibility.

Sciatica pain is characterized by pain radiating along the sciatica nerve, which begins in your lower back and then splits to both sides of your body, running through your butt cheeks and down the backs of your thighs, all the way to your knees. The pain is from a pinched, compressed, irritated or damaged sciatica nerve & can occur simple by sitting, standing or walking with bad posture. Pain range can be slightly irritating to debilitating tingling fire legs. A study on Yoga for Sciatica proved yoga can soothe sciatica pain by lowering backaches intensity, reducing the need for medication pain & creates more low back flexibility.

This 30 Minute Yoga practice was sequenced to soothing sciatica pain.
