Classes

In these classes we explore time tested techniques which can relieve stress and awaken our natural potential for self’-healing.

  • classic Yoga postures for strength and flexibility
  • gentle QiGong moves, attuned to the breath, harmonizing body, mind, and spirit
  • the simple art of meditation, learning to be in the moment
  • self massage to strengthen the immune system and to balance energy in the body

A typical class starts with body and breath awareness. The beginning exercises are a blend of Feldenkrais and Yoga and serve the purpose of loosening the joints and gently stretching the muscles while in a relaxed state.  There is a gradual transition to classical Yoga postures and QiGong moves in which each student is encouraged to explore his/her range of flexibility and strength,using the breath to enhance the stretch and to stay centered. In some classes we will explore ways of stimulating pressure points in order to facilitate the flow of energy. We will also experience seated or walking meditation. Each class ends with a guided relaxation.
