Friday Series: Yin Yoga with JenSitting at work all week or racing around making you want to hit the couch on Friday night? Come to Yin and sink into a relaxing, yet amazingly effective practice suitable for most levels, Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Yin poses are held for a longer period of time 5-7 minutes, mostly seated, working deep in the body targeting deep connective tissues, ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body. Energetically, yin yoga improves the energy flow, enhancing the flow of chi in the organs. Balance out your week and join us for Yin! (Oct 5, Nov 2, Dec 21) Click here for full Friday Series schedule

Qigong with Joyce Palmer

Qigong has been used for health maintenance and illness prevention for over 4000 years. This time-honored practice is simple to learn and adaptable for all ages and levels of fitness. Classes integrate breath work, activating exercises, stretching, flowing movements, and postures into a moving meditation that calms the mind and energizes the body. This class is a standing practice so no props or mats are needed. Since the classes are not progressive and each one is different, drop-ins and newcomers are always welcome.

Refresh and Renew with Qigong, taught by Joyce PalmerNo doubt about it, aging is challenging. Our bodies don’t always work as they used to; there are more aches and pains; chronic conditions emerge; and recovery from even small injuries takes a long time. But we still want to be able to move around, have good energy, feel alive, and enjoy our activities. Qigong can help revitalize your body, mind and spirit, while healing from the inside out. Participants have the option to practice seated or standing or both as needed. Each session includes breathing exercises, energy activating moves, gentle stretching, and flow sequences No mats or props are needed, and no floor work is involved. Just come in comfortable clothing that allows for your fullest range of motion (Starting Tuesday, October 16, 2018).

Relax and Renew with Karen Price

Through gentle movements (some with props, some without) the body is opened and stretched, releasing tension that causes stiffness and discomfort. Deepening our breath helps to quiet the mind and enhances relaxation, leaving us refreshed on every level. All Levels.
