    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance. The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue. Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1-1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome. Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended — clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs. Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine. Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.  

    Advance registration required by 10/5.

    Facilitator: Debby Gaines

    This day-long class is setup for Reiki practitioners who have already received their Reiki I & II training but feel like they need a refresher. Do you have questions you would like to ask before you begin offering Reiki sessions? Has it been awhile since you took Reiki I and II and you need a refresher before moving to Reiki Master Level (3A)? This class will include hands on learning to allow each student to have the chance to give at least one full Reiki session as well as to receive a session. Everyone will receive the printed materials for both classes again so that you have the chance to review the symbols, mantras, and to refer to as questions come up. 

    Previous Reiki I and II certification is required to sign up.  Please call Deb at Womanspace with any questions about this.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

    In Usui Reiki, the master classes are divided up so that Reiki practitioners may become a Reiki Master without being a Reiki teacher. (Reiki 3A is the Master class and Reiki 3B is the Reiki Master Teacher Class.) In Reiki 3A, you will learn two more Reiki symbols, ways to do a 'psychic surgery', how to do a spirit release, as well how to clear space energetically. When students make a committment to complete this level, they often experience opportunities for healing and improving their life, as well as the lives around them. To help with this process, you will learn how to do a Reiki meditation to improve your own life, how to create crystal grids for healing and intentions and more.

    You must have completed Reiki I and II previous to taking Reiki 3A.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes. Bring a sack lunch.

We will be exploring and discussing topics that include: challenges and ease of trusting a spiritual resource, experiences of spirituality, what kinds of things/activities feed your soul-self, sharing new aha’s in one’s spiritual journey, and what do our doubts mean. The conversation will be moderated and will focus on our personal beliefs and experiences (not on any one specific faith) so that there is an environment of openness, sacredness, and inclusiveness. Dogmatism, proselytizing, and political agendas will not be welcome.

    Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. With regular practice, Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Additionally, Yoga Nidra is beneficial for insomnia, aids in calming symptoms of chronic pain, and has been shown to help those with PTSD or other psychological wounds. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours or sleep! Learn this practice of self-inquiry. Restore your energy and relax into the real you. Expect to spend the majority of this class reclined on your yoga mat on the floor. (Please talk with Keri before class begins if you need to be seated.) Class is open to all. No experience necessary. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat. Advance registration preferred. Walk-ins Allowed.

    Meditation is the practice and process of paying attention and focusing your awareness. Whether you are seeking greater focus, less stress and more peace of mind, or a deeper appreciation of the beauty and richness of life, the simple practice of sitting down and turning your attention inward can do wonders! This is a beginning class where different forms of meditation are introduced and practiced in a seated position. Bring a yoga mat or rug if you would like to do this lying down.
