Instructor: Emily Anderson
Date: Mondays
Time: 12-1pm

This fast-paced flow yoga class is firmly grounded by an informed biomechanical approach.  Students will focus on linking conscious breath and anatomical awareness with vigorous and mindful flow to build strength, flexibility and concentration.  Each class is rooted in sun salutation, but varies based on the day's movement concept.  Rockin' music and inversion progressions are a part of every vinyasa experience in this class.

Feldenkrais Awareness through Movement®

Cultivate Resilience and an Appetite for Life with Awareness through Movement®
Instructor: Frauke Voss
Dates: TBD

Compromised Jaw Function Affects Our Whole Self
In infancy our mouth and jaw are central to learning.As adults we find that stresses often settle in the jaw, causing discomfort and even pain, with tightness in the neck and shoulders. However, a tight jaw affects not only adjacent areas but our whole self.
In this class we will explore the pivotal role of the mouth and jaw in relation to the eyes, neck and shoulders, as well as the breastbone, spine and pelvis and our relationship to the ground through our feet. 
A well functioning, released jaw makes us feel more balanced and has a profound impact on our physical as well as emotional well being.

The Clarity of Hip and Shoulder Interaction Influences the Way We Walk through Life
The relationship of shoulders and hips is worth exploring and clarifying. The shoulder girdle and pelvis are linked by the spine and there is an underlying ‘grammar’ to their relationship in movement. An awareness of this ‘grammar’ makes us feel more grounded and has an invigorating, life-affirming impact on how we move through space and life.
In two dynamic Awareness through Movement® lessons we will explore shoulder and hip circles as well as shoulder, hip and spine integration.

Please dress comfortably, if you plan to attend.
