Functional Movement Classes with Marilyn

Thursdays 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm.  Begins May 10th

Gentle, therapeutic movement and exercise designed to alleviate pain and help make everyday activities safer and accessible. The movements are based on real-world situational bio-mechanics and work on building strength, balance, co-ordination and a greater range of body motion. We will also address the mind/body connection with techniques for stress reduction and relaxation.  Overall these healing modalities will create more vitality, relieve discomfort and help you feel better on a daily basis.

These small group classes will be structured to the needs of each student with a maximum of 5 people per class to ensure proper space, time and attention for all.

Who is this class for? Anyone dealing with range of motion issues and pain that make day to day activities challenging. Our studio is wheelchair and walker accessible. The use of props, including chairs, make this a safe, accessible class.

Begins May 10, 2018. Thursdays 2:00 pm -3:00 pm

Restorative Yoga +Acupuncture

Thursday, June 21st    6:00 – 7:30 pm

Marilyn leads a restorative class that ends with a fully supported, extended savasana.  In this fully relaxed state, your body’s ability to repair is at its peak, making savasana a great time to receive acupuncture. Aimee will come around to place a few needles to address your specific health issues while you blissfully rest on your yoga mat.

Feel the combined healing power of these two modalities together.

No experience necessary, perfect for beginners or seasoned yogis. Wear comfortable clothing.  Yoga mats are provided but feel free to bring your own. $30.00. Space is limited.  Register online 

Community Acupuncture with Sounds of a Tibetan Healing Bowl

Friday, May 18th or Friday, June 1st  6:30 – 7:30

Aimee will offer community acupuncture with the healing sounds of a Tibetan singing bowl. These two sessions are specifically for those going through difficult life transitions – a life changing diagnosis, a loved one’s passing, an end of a significant relationship, parenting a struggling child, caretaking an ailing parent, and other life challenges. During these times, our world can fill with grief, loss, fear, disappointment, and anger; emotions we must face and courageously work through. Come to rest, to heal for one hour. Find peace in stillness. Gain strength to continue on with your journey.

Space is very limited. $32 per session. Sign up for one or both. To register, stop by or online.  Pre-registration will be required.
