With cell phone and computer use on the rise for most of us, we often use acupuncture to treat patients with neck and upper back tension and arm and wrist pain. With this class, we wanted to offer patients another tool to help them reduce this pain or tension. Come spend 75 minutes with yoga teacher Megan Windeler doing chair yoga and walk out feeling more relaxed and less muscle tension. Another goal of this class is for attendees to learn yoga poses that they can do throughout their day, upon waking, at their job or just before bed. All you'll need to practice is a nice place to sit!
Here's Megan's description of the class and her bio:
The practice of Yoga is a means of stretching, strengthening and relaxing our bodies and minds; a way of growing more available to a feeling of ease and a greater availability to the here and now. The shapes of the physical practice of Yoga are known as Asana, which basically means to sit or dwell quietly in a particular position.' In this class we are going to take that definition of Asana to heart. Using the chair as either seat or support we will stretch the neck, shoulders, hips, back and legs and then take a well deserved rest. This class is open to all experience levels and modifications will be offered.
Megan’s classes are slow, strong and rich in alignment. She incorporates both movement and restorative shapes and teaches from the belief that Yoga should be simple, doable and as delicious as the perfect peach on a summer day. No matter how strong or flexible, old or young, fit or bent out of shape you define yourself to be there is room in her class for you. Her hope is that students leave each class feeling more at home in their bodies and more connected to their lives.
Megan completed the teacher training at the Yoga Tree in San Francisco in 2005 and has been teaching ever since. She continuously studies Pilates and alignment with Ruthie Whalborg Scott, Chris Black, Blane Ashby and Janine Fondelier at EHS Pilates, and finds great inspiration in her Yoga teaching from her fellow teachers at Bernal Yoga especially Katy Steadman, Traci Burleigh and Caroline Kelly.

"Let go of anxiety, stress and resistance and get back in the zone in your biz and life. Let go of the past and tap into your vision. Find out how tapping can change your life and you can shine and follow your dreams.
Tapping provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, and physical diseases. While Tapping is newly set to revolutionize the field of health and wellness, the healing concepts that it’s based upon have been in practice in Eastern medicine for over 5,000 years. Like acupuncture and acupressure, Tapping is a set of techniques which utilize the body’s energy meridian points. You ca n stimulate these meridian points by tapping on them with your fingertips – literally tapping into your body’s own energy and healing power.
We will spend the afternoon tapping away blocks to new beginnings, setting intentions and visualizing. This will be a powerful way to get focused, release blocks and tap into magic in your biz and life. "
Kate Winch has been supporting her clients follow their dreams for over 20 years. She loves helping bring balance, harmony and general well-being to her client’s lives.

Circle CA is now a 501c3!
This is big news. It has taken almost two years of planning, paperwork, and patience. Circle Community Acupuncture of San Francisco is officially a tax exempt 501c3 Nonprofit Organization.
What does this mean? On the surface we will be the same clinic our patients have always loved. Same location, same staff, same acupuncture, same lovely reclining chairs. Becoming a nonprofit will provide us more opportunities to serve our community. By opening up opportunities for fundraising, grant applications, and partnerships we hope to be able to pursue our mission of providing affordable and accessible acupuncture to our community of San Francisco Bay Area residents.
We will have more news and information about this in the coming weeks. In the meantime, feel free to make a tax deductible donation, or let us know if you have a skill that you would like to offer us as a volunteer. We would love to hear from people in our community who are able to provide assistance with fundraising, nonprofit administration, legal assistance, etc. If you think you could be of help as a volunteer, send us a brief explanatory email firstname.lastname@example.org.
