TUESDAY CLASSES

Feldenkrais®

The Feldenkrais Method is a system of exercises creatively designed to subtly challenge the body while exploring new movement options; gain knowledge about habitual movement patterns and learn to use the body with greater ease.

Movement is an essential part of our life and offers the perfect access to our brain’s ability to be creative and imaginative. Understanding how movement, attitude, and action affects us and how we relate to ourselves and others. It matters how we move!

‘Movement is life. Life is a process. Improve the quality of the process and you improve the quality of life itself.’Moshe Feldenkrais

WEDNESDAY CLASSES

Gentle Flow Yoga

Designed for mainstream people leading active lives.

Gentle Flow Yoga is a Yin/Yang vinyasa style of yoga suitable for beginners and experienced yogis. Yin yoga activity is slow, steady, and often stationary; Yang yoga activity is mobile, builds to an apex before calming down, and requires a certain level of core strength requiring appropriate effort. Students learn how to bring awareness to sensations, emotions, and thoughts.

Tao Yoga

 

Tao Yoga is a specific ‘kind’ of yoga that tunes into the subtle energies of the body ~ the energies that are not only within us but all around us, the energies that we often miss because we are so busy in our thoughts. In this new evening class you will stretch, strengthen, shake off tension, and most of all be supremely present with yourself. Stacey Sinclair will share the teachings of Gurumatha Amma’s True Yoga Teachings and Ilchi Lee’s Tao Teachings.

Wednesday ~ 6:00 – 7:15pm

Restorative Yoga

Struggling with everyday stress and fatigue, limited mobility, living with a concussion or chronic condition that impacts the quality of your life? This profound and yet subtle practice, with physiological healing benefits, works ‘magically’ by using blankets, bolsters, blocks and straps to open up the body.

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra also compliments in a psychological way. Guided visualization and meditation help to release emotional tension and unravel old habitual patterns of being.

WEDNESDAY ~ 7:00 – 8:30pm
