    Class description: Introduction to Somatics

    Instructor: Carolyn Pigott
    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!

    This class is suitable for all ages and abilities.

    Investment: $18/class drop in or $60/4 classes

Participants will learn to foster this anti-oppressive approach to healing through the application of a trauma-informed lens.

    TCTSY is an adjunct treatment grounded in the western medical model with robust research demonstrating successful outcomes for those with treatment resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This is the only yoga technique registered as an evidence based practice with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) in the United States.

    3:30 pm-4:30 pm
    2019.02.12

    Instructor: Sue McGiffin
    Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

    Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

    • Children's Yoga (Ages 5-7 years) 3:30-4:30pm
      3:30 pm-4:30 pm
      2019.02.12

      Instructor: Sue McGiffin
      Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

      Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

    • Children's Yoga (Ages 5-7 years) 3:30-4:30pm
      3:30 pm-4:30 pm
      2019.02.19

      Instructor: Sue McGiffin
      Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

      Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

    Class description: Introduction to Somatics

    Instructor: Carolyn Pigott
    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!

    This class is suitable for all ages and abilities.

    3:30 pm-4:30 pm
    2019.02.26

    Instructor: Sue McGiffin
    Yoga for kids is a balance between spontaneity and structure, kids learn to listen to each other as well as express themselves creatively. Kids learn best when they’re having fun so kids yoga classes interweave story, song, games and poses allowing children to learn in a multi-sensory environment which explores kinaesthetic (movement), visual, oral, inter-and intra-personal learning.

    Kids will benefit by practicing in a non-competitive learning environment, developing and building strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. In addition to the physical benefits, yoga brings calmness and peace of mind allowing children to become more aware of their bodies, achieve better focus and concentration; or in yoga terms, creating mindfulness.

      Hips & Hamstrings

      Instructor: LJ Jackett

      Whether your lifestyle involves sitting for extended periods of time, intense training, or recreational activities — tightness in our hips and hamstrings is common.  In this class we delve deeply into these areas as we open, close, strengthen, and stabilize our hips and hamstrings to make them healthier and happier together.  The first portion of class will invite the exploration of heating and energizing movement . The last portion of class incorporates longer holds and meditation to melt away tension and stress.
