I’m really happy to be launching Dreena’s JOY Club in the new year.
This club will incorporate movement and cooking practices throughout the month to bring more vitality – joy! – to your life.
Diet and movement are interconnected. When we move better, we usually feed ourselves better, and when we feed ourselves better we move better, and the cycle continues with one nourishing the other.
And, our practices will correspond with the seasons and energetic principles of Chinese Medicine.
So, for instance, from January to March, we will be moving in ways that help to nourish our kidneys and the urinary bladder – the organs associated with this season of winter (for us in the Northern hemisphere). And, the cooking classes will feature recipes using foods that are very balancing for winter.
Dreena’s JOY Club: Part 1
Part 1 of this club involves the workshops I’ve been running since November: CHANGE YOUR FASCIA, CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Because it can truly do just that. The power of this work is not to be underestimated.
Last spring I discovered this movement, and I knew it was something I needed to teach. So I trained in September, and have been immersed in learning since. Why? It has changed my life. I now live without pain in my shoulder and feel the benefits in other areas of my body as well. It has truly brought more joy to my life.
This work connects to concepts of Chinese Medicine. Very serendipitous for me, as I was already training in TCM for yin yoga this past year.
When you take care of your fascia, it will take care of you. Because when you CHANGE the fascia through engaged movement, it allows the muscles to move freely, there is less tugging on the tendons, more suspension in the joints, and a better flow of energy through the body. Less pain, more joy.
There was a time I was doing prolotherapy every 2 months for my shoulder, neck, and lower back. As well as chiropractic treatments. I haven’t had prolotherapy since May! Last week I returned for a chiropractic visit (first in many months), and she couldn’t believe the change in the tissues that were previously very problematic. It’s all because of this practice.
But don’t just take it from me.
Read THESE comments from participants in my fall workshops:
As we did the exercises, I felt release. All that tightness! This morning I woke at 4:30, rolled over onto my side and was amazed at the feeling of freedom in my upper back. I dozed off for a couple more hours of great sleep. Moving around today it feels like my shoulders are inches lower and my arms are longer. We have been running from activity to activity all morning and now to an event. Can’t wait to get back home and repeat the series. -April
My brain was definitely at work and I’m sure I will improve a few of the exercises in terms of effectiveness as time goes on. It’s funny, I was interested in this workshop for my husband. He has some similarities in his story to your’s in that he occasionally uses other tools like massage, cryotherapy, chiropractics, etc. I actually never thought of myself as someone that had much for tightness or pain in my body. It wasn’t until after I did the movements with you that I realized my own tightness and aches were gone! I hadn’t even realized they were there. My lower body has now been begging for its own treatment all day. -Sherri
Totally happy. I feel looser, less pain than I have in years with just one session. Can’t thank you enough or relay how excited I am. I slept so much better than I can remember too. Spirits are lifted. I was sure I was heading quickly to need of wheelchair prior to your offering! -Jaimie
Fascia is an interconnected webbing that permeates EVERYTHING in our bodies: muscles, nerves, bones, and joints. The result? Limited mobility, reduced range of motion, stiffness, pain.
Our movement transforms this dysfunctional fascia into flexible, functional fascia. The result? More mobility, better circulation, improved organ functions, reduced (or no!) pain.
This work is life-changing, and I want to share it with you.

Now, this movement is greatly enhanced by nutrition. Our bodies’ tissues rebound easier by eating less processed foods, more organic foods, and clean water. And, as I mentioned earlier, they have a reciprocal effect.
So, we will also be cooking together! I will select recipes that align with the seasons, and I will demo some of these recipes through live sessions. You will receive a pdf of all of the recipes.

Finally, we will include a yin yoga class – again, concomitant with the organs/seasons in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Our fascia fix sessions are very “yang”. You will feel your body heat up, you will build muscle, and you will even get a cardio response. Our yoga sessions will bring the balance, the “yin” into our life. Yin yoga also benefits the connective tissues, in a different way. Moreover, it’s especially helpful for the nervous system.
I’m opening registration today for a 3-month period. Your payment will be for the TOTAL 3 months. Once registration closes (January 4th), I close doors until the next season – in this case, spring.
Your JOY club membership includes:
- 4-5 live movement classes/month (12+ classes over the 3 months)
- 1 live cooking class/month (3 classes total)
- REPLAYS of all videos
- access to a private FB group to ask me direct questions
- recipe ebook with over 20 recipes aligned with the season
That’s 15 LIVE classes, replays of videos, recipes for each season, and access to a private FB group.
Let’s feel GREAT in our bodies, and experience more joy in our lives!
