Healing Zen Meditation
Part of our Wellness Wednesdays Series, Healing Zen Meditation is a 45 minute guided meditation to relieve anxiety and stress using visualization, breath and intention. We introduce techniques in the Kundalini tradition to balance the Chakras and attune into each one giving the body a sense of wellbeing and holistic healing. Meditation is scientifically proven to alter your brain decreasing fear, increasing productivity, improved sleep, ability to shift perspective and so much more! Recommended for EVERYONE!
Zen Breath & Flow
Part of our Wellness Wednesdays series, Zen Breath & Flow is a practice like poetry in movement! The goal is to invoke that euphoric feeling and fill the body and each cell with Prana (life force) through a series of breathing exercises between and during pose transitions. This releases endorphins, detoxifies the body and relieves anxiety by purging out stagnant energy and settling into the parasympathetic nervous system.
A revitalizing practice or ALL LEVELS! We introduce poses and breathing techniques in Moderate, Intermediate and Advanced so you can grow with this practice.
Very cool class for deeeeeep stretching. This class is A.K.A as "Yin" which means passive. You hold poses for longer than usual and this aids in flexibility and relaxation for muscles and works deep into fascia (google it, neat stuff). You will walk out of this class feeling like you just got an amazing massage. I'll take it!
