    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 9/8.

    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.

    Among the various reasons why primates do touch each other is to ease tensions among the group in social situations. The hormone Oxytocin is another benefit of physical touch. Oxytocin helps humans connect to others and promotes feel-good sensations that foster a sense of well-being and happiness. Let’s experience the power of touch together! Using essential oils to enhance our overall experience, each participant will get to experience and also be trained to do the AromaTouch Hand Massage Technique. The AromaTouch Technique, developed by Dr. David K. Hill, D.C., provides both aromatic and topical benefits. While the main purpose of the technique is to apply the oils and provide the recipient with a sensory experience, it also facilitates an emotional connection between the giver and receiver. The connections developed through this technique encourage feelings of trust, being cared for and about, relaxation, and can ease physical discomfort in muscles and joints. We will go over the basics of using essential oils and some safety protocols at the start of our workshop. For those that go through the training there will be an option to go out into the community to provide others with this connection and incredible experience.

    Facilitator: Sue Abare

    This class is for those first timers wanting to experience watercolor or someone who wants to expand beginning skills. Have fun exploring the enchantment of water and paint in their irresistible dance. As with all painting, a little drawing experience is helpful. Feel free to bring supplies you may already have or wait for suggestions on what you may want to purchase. Some basic supplies are furnished. We will discuss preparing paper to paint, brushes and their technique, some color theory - but mostly we will jump in the water, and do it!

    Meditation is the practice and process of paying attention and focusing your awareness.  In this class you will focus your awareness on your body through mindfulness explorations of breathing, grounding, filling with nurturing and nourishing resources, and listening to your body's wisdom.  The practice will remain familiar each week and your body's wisdom will change and grow just as you evolve from day to day.  This meditation is done in a seated position with your feet on the floor.

    The class “Meditation:  Introduction to the History, Benefits, and Practice” may be a helpful to attend before this class if you have no prior meditation experience.
