A practice of honoring yourself, your body and what it needs. We explore balance, comfort, agility, ease, efficiency, and movement that is natural and optimal. This class is both restorative and stimulating. We explore body alignment and keeping centered in stillness and in motion. This is a martial art as well as a self-care practice; both calming & powerful. The intent is to nourish and nurture the body, mind, and spirit. Students will learn to move using energy and breath, not only with muscles & strength. This is a practice of longevity. All levels welcome. Yang Style Tai Chi.

This 30-minute class gives you a chance to tighten up your form.

In this 45-minute class you will use foam rollers & tennis/lacrosse balls to perform a self-massage or myofascial release. Your muscles and tendons will feel stretched, you will break up trigger points, soothe tight fascia and increase blood flow and circulation. You will also improve your balance and stability, strengthen your core muscles and total body function as you move and stabilize on the roller.
