Plus free smoothie from Rawthentic Eatery with your first class!
You will be introduced to fundamental movements that reconnect your brain to your muscles. Through the practice of deep breathing techniques and mindful awareness you will discover areas of your body that are stuck in something called sensory motor amnesia, a chronically tight state in the muscles. You will be gently guided to unlock these patterns and feel a renewed sense of ease and comfort in these muscles. Your mind and body will relax and you will walk out feeling a renewed vitality to take on your life once again!
Mindfulness Meditation, Mondays, 12-1pm
In this class you will be introduced to meditation as a healing practice focusing on the Four Pillars of Mindfulness for Health: – Deep breathing – Body Sensing – Focus and Imagination – Biofeedback measures to track your progress. We will move gently with some micro-yoga to transition comfortably to seated or lying down for guided visualization followed by a short silent meditation. Each week there will be a different topic. You will be given tips on how you can practice mindfulness on your own your life. In the spirit of curiosity and non-judgement, there will be time for discussion at the end if you chose.
prices same as above class.
