This class explores the spiritual themes of meditation through movement, as well as spiritual and emotional expression using movement and dance steps. Music will include Meditative music, African Drums, and Celtic Music. Participants will also have the opportunity to incorporate their own religious or spiritual traditions into the dance.
Wellness is the result of personal initiative, seeking a more optimal, holistic, and balanced state of well-being across five dimensions. This class is designed to empower the "Baby Boomer" to move forward with greater wellness and well-being by creating a holistic experience that nourishes each dimension. Historical yoga postures are evolved through application of current evidence-based knowledge to design a safe, effective, and enjoyable practice. A slow, gentle, and mindful approach is utilized with a focus on the physcial breath and postures to calm the mind, balance the body, and cultivate self-awareness.
The practice guides students through:
* Simple techniques to re-establish a healthy, diaphragmatic breath.
* Slow, gentle, preparatory movements (mat level, not standing) that open the major joints and muscles of the body and maintain a moment by moment awareness, as they are synchronized with the breath.
* Gentle postures that promote a healthy spine and improve posture, balance, and breathing.
* Postures that gently strengthen muscles and promote functional range of motion of the joints, creating a balance of strength and flexibility.
*Mediation to rest in the stillness of being, and find peace within.
**Yoga props are incorporated and a thick mat (for under your own) is provided to facilitate comfort, ease, and safety. Classes are taught in a small group format (8 students max.) and offered in six-week sessions.
