    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.

    Examples of chronic conditions that may benefit from this therapeutic approach: Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, arthritis, Lupus, injury/surgery recovery, Diabetes/Neuropathy, those with limited mobility and those just wanting a safe, gentle practice to support healthy aging.

    Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.

    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.

    All levels. Yoga Nidra means Yogic sleep; a state of conscious deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. This class is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness, which has been found to reduce stress, tension and anxiety. It is beneficial for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra also helps calm and clear the mind and has potential to provide emotional healing--restoring our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep. Note: this class will meet in the William Reif Gallery

    Reiki (ray-key) is a Japanese word meaning 'Universal Life Force Energy' and describes the energy found in all of life.  An ancient form of hands on energy healing, Reiki is a skill obtained through an attunement (opening) to bring the power of Universal Life Force Energy through the human chakra system.  The energy then is used to balance the body or an object by bringing it into harmony with the universe once again.

    In Reiki One, you will learn the hand positions for self-healing and for the healing treatment of others.  We will talk about the seven major chakras and the history of the Usui System of Natural Healing.  You will receive your first attunement. We will also have time to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.

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

    In Reiki Two, you will learn symbols and mantras to focus and deepen the healing treatment of the Reiki energy. We will talk about the sacredness of the Reiki symbols. We will also begin to learn ways to send Reiki through time and distance, allowing healing in the past to improve the present. Time will be allotted to practice feeling energy and giving Reiki to each other.
