A 75-minute class devoted to reconnecting the upper and lower body via strengthening the pelvis, hips and core. Using numerous props to both support and challenge the body, we attend to bony rhythms and the muscular patterns that support them. The first portion of the class focuses on neural integration and stress reduction. The middle portion of the class is based on a ballet class with simple exercises to develop strength and mobility with control. The final portion of the class includes some balance work while lying on a small ball. You’ll leave the class focused but calm.
This class is for all ages and abilities including athletes, fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens and those recovering from injury. Focus is on creating fluidity through articulation of the spine and joints. Visual and vestibular neural integration promotes balance and stability.
A large portion of the class is performed seated on stools, followed by a standing series and/or floor work. You’ll leave this class feeling invigorated, with greater mental clarity and a sense of calm and ease.
TriYoga & Mindful Stretching
This class is designed so your mind and body can experience expansion stretches in all directions. We will start with Qi Gong (energy work) to clear up your body and mind from unneeded energy. Then we will move into Tai Chi with slow smooth movements for arthritis and fall prevention. This increases balance and builds inner strength. Lastly, we will work in TriYoga, which coordinates movements with breath and focus and is an effective way to feel full stretches with wall support. We will conclude the session with Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) so body, mind and soul can absorb the benefits of this holistic practice. Beginners welcome!
This is an alignment-based yoga class using blocks, blankets, yoga straps. The teacher encourages participants to do the movements and flows at their own pace.
Sound is a subtle yet powerful difference from noise. Noise can be distracting; whereas deliberate use of sound has many beneficial health aspects, including awareness of consciousness and growth. Experience the power of sound to promote self-healing and centeredness. A wide range of instruments are used including: gongs, singing bowls, flutes, percussion, bells, chimes, and reed, to lead you in your journey.
Studies show that more frequent exercise of shorter duration is better than longer exercise sessions less often, to maintain weight, decrease the incidence of cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome, and development of diabetes.
