NEW CLASSES

Level 1-2 CURIOUS MOVEMENT with Sofia Belan                          Tues. 7:15-8:30AM

This early morning class invites students to wake up through inquisitive  movement approached in a playful manner. Class will begin on the floor with gentle opening movements, and transition into full-bodied poses that bring awareness to – and maybe even begin to change – our repetitious patterns. Your body makes sense – it is a wondrous part of nature that can explore, create space to grow, evolve, and experience joy through movement. As B.K.S. Iyengar writes, “All games are meaningless if you do not know the rules. Yoga says you are playing the game with the body and self.
By playing you can gain freedom.” RSVP Sofia

YOGA for BONE HEALTH with Betty Aten  Weds. 9:30 – 11:00AM

Betty Aten is pleased to announce a new class called Yoga for Bone Health. The focus will be on the practice of traditional yoga poses that have been shown to help maintain and improve bone health. Around the age of 40, everyone starts to lose bone mass, which weakens the bones. When bone mass loss is severe, it becomes osteoporosis or osteopenia. Either condition increases the risk of fracture, especially in the spine and hip. Betty studied directly with Dr. Loren Fishman, the author of the long-term study on Yoga vs. Osteoporosis, to become a Yoga for Osteoporosis-certified teacher. The class is open to those already diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia, and anyone who is interested in learning ways to improve bone health. This is an all levels class. Contact Betty

Mind Body Restore with Shakti Assouline                                          Sunday, Feb. 26th 3:00-5:00pm

Cost: $25 first time

 Lay down and experience an incredibly easy, yet profoundly powerful form of meditation called Yoga Nidra. Instead of asking the mind to “be still,” we use the active nature of the mind and direct it in a way that relaxes the actual cerebral cortex, and thus rejuvenates the brain, mind and body. In this delicious state of receptivity, it is easy to shift old patterns of thought or behavior and rewire neural pathways to bring about more optimism, satisfaction and happiness. Nidra is also known to heal sleep difficulties, and nourish our entire system. Call Shakti:305-394-4772 Contact Shakti
