Toddler Summit – Protect Your Body! Presented by Anya Gordon

The next Toddler Summit will be on Tuesday, April 7th from 5:45-7 at The Montessori House of St. Johns (7400 N Jersey St, Portland, OR 97203).As everyone knows, working in the toddler classroom can be a physically demanding job! With that in mind we have asked Anya Gordon, RYT, CCA, Director of Elementum which is a Yoga and Movement Therapy Group located in NE Portland to present a workshop on how to protect your body from repetitive use injuries. Anya has been deeply involved in the workings of the body for the better part of 20 years. She specializes in neurological and movement disorders as well as chronic, difficult to address pain and injuries. She provides knowledgeable, personalized attention through a variety of movement based therapies, so everyone can enjoy a healthy and active life. OMA will be giving 1 hour of credit for attending this workshop.   Guides and assistants are welcome to attend.

In order to best utilize Anya’s vast wealth of knowledge please email me if you have any particular injuries or chronic problematic body positions that you would like Anya to focus on. Anya will also discuss how to best position ourselves or how we can work in strengthening exercises as we work.

Feel free to bring alcohol or food for a potluck. A special thanks to Kate Mullican for pulling all of this together and hosting!
