An Eastern Influenced Well-Being Sampler

with Liza Dousson

Over this 60 minute class you'll sample a few of South East Asia's ancient healing traditions including introductory practices of Qi Gong, Thai Partner Yoga & Metta Meditation.

Qi Gong is one of China's 3,000 year-old moving meditation practices and there are many, many types of Qi Gong. The practice is almost always done standing and incorporates a grounded center, a quiet mind and fluid, gentle movement to positively shift Qi-flow (energy) in our bodies for greater health & well-being. The movements will be simple to follow.  Qi Gong is considered “exercise medicine” within the Taoist system of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Thai Partner Yoga brings us the experience of Thailand's most famous and 2,500 year old bodywork form, but you'll also incorporate some Yoga nuances in partnership. You'll discover as “The Giver” how easily you can offer comfort and joy to “The Receiver” OR notice what it is like to work together rather than individually, to benefit partnership, as you adjust to incorporate “The Other” more mindfully.

Metta Meditation, “Loving Kindness Meditation (LKM)”, is part of Hindu and Buddhist meditation traditions. It offers inclusiveness and goodwill to ourselves and to many others – inclusive of Community and the World-at-Large – with simple spoken mantras.  Thought usually practiced silently, they'll be done by us together in this introduction. Science is now saying metta meditation is quickly joining the mindfulness movement so prevalent in recent years because of Metta's effectiveness in changing our personal vibrational frequencies to experience & transmit greater peace...in less time.  Some say just 7 minutes per day! If so a great one for our busy lives! And it is easy to learn too!

Yoga for Back Pain

with Kellie Codianna

For many reasons many people struggle with back pain.  Over time, compression of the spine, shortening of muscles, and rounded shoulders, the back will become weak.

In this class, Kellie from Divinely Rooted, will guide you into your unique anatomical body, with detail oriented cues that are subtle, yet deep.  

Kellie loves to connect with her students and help them shift from a mindset of “this is how I will be forever” to “I can become pain free.”

Calm Mind, Open Heart

with Jennifer Greenwald

The truth is we are love.  Our work is to realize and release the false grips of the ego so we can return to this truth and live in the space of an open heart. With an open heart, we can deepen our relationships with others while renewing our most intimate connection with our selves and the Divine Consciousness.

Known as the Yoga of Awareness, Kundalini is a powerful medium that helps give you the experience of your soul.  Through breath-work, movement, meditation, and mantras, the Kundalini energy within is released and profound transformations are made possible.
