Restorative & Meditation (Luna)
These classes take a gentle, slow approach, making space for healing, softening, exploration, and nervous system release. Slow movement allows us to focus on the details and build smooth coordination and strength with low risk for injury. Mindfulness and nervous system regulation are key parts of managing pain and stress and recovering from injury or trauma. And by becoming more fully present in our bodies, we can more fully experience life.
Luna classes are the place to start if you have limited mobility, injuries, or need rest and repair.
The Feldenkrais Method® is a somatic education system which uses gentle movement and directed attention to explore habitual movement patterns and discover new, more efficient, graceful and pain-free ways of moving. Benefits include an increased ease and range of motion, better coordination, and increased mindfulness and curiosity throughout life. It can also help identify and overcome habits and tension holding patterns that may be limiting your capabilities and growth or which may even cause injury.
Sound healing is an experience like no other for soothing the mind, body, and spirit. We use crystal singing bowls and gongs to generate sound frequencies for an incredible therapeutic effect. Participants relax and listen while the sound vibrations promote deep relaxation and a meditative state. This is a refreshing and ideal way to reduce stress, completely relax, and restore energetic balance in your system.
In Restorative Yoga, we practice observing what it feels like to be physically and mentally at ease. The practice has been described as one of conscious relaxation and softening into stillness, an exhale for both mind and body. Through the use of props (blankets, bolsters, blocks, sandbags) we support the body in gentle poses on the ground for up to 20 minutes.
