Bowspring Classes with Linda Oelschlaeger

Put the curves back! Linda's Bowspring classes strengthen the muscles in the back side of the body to return the natural curves to the spine. Putting the spinal curves back allows dynamic freedom of movement and helps prevent pain that comes from losing these curves through daily life and aging. Tone your glutes and walk with more bounce in your step! 


Linda Oelschlaeger, E-RYT 500, has been teaching yoga 16 years. She is certified both in Kripalu yoga and Anusara yoga. Linda has continued to study with Desi Springer and John Friend and teaches the Bowspring postural alignment system ( Linda holds an M.S. degree in Family & Child Development.
