62 Point Rolling and Relaxation Meditation – May 9th 5:45PM – 7:15PM
When you try to “live in the moment” or meditate or focus on ANY ONE THING for more than 8 seconds, do you quickly get frustrated, tense, and angry with yourself? Meditation and mindfulness are supposed to help RELIEVE stress, not CAUSE it. But our hyper-active brains often have a hard time slowing down and being okay with inactivity.
I have been, um, “blessed” with an overly analytical, over-active mind. Somatic-based meditations (where your brain is guided through the body) are one of the few types of meditation that can handle my monkey mind. If this sounds familiar to you, I invite you to join me for this class.
We will begin class with a somatic meditation, guiding the mind through 62 points on the body. We will then use the Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls on all of the 62 points, bringing the mind’s awareness into each of those areas and letting it settle there for a few moments. At the end of class, we will go through the 62-point meditation a final time, allowing time for the mind to observe the improved mind-body connection that comes with rolling. You may find that the combination of tactile sensation (rolling) and guided somatic meditation is a gateway to the calm you seek.
The Primal Core – May 16th 5:45PM – 7:15PM
Ahh. The Core. It’s “engaged” in almost every single yoga or exercise class, and we all want a toned, sexy one. But what is it really? Why do we have such a love/hate relationship with it? Why is it so important (beside looking good in a bikini/Speedo)?
In this workshop we will use Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls to relieve tension in the multiple layers of core – rolling out tissues from the neck to the base of the spine. We’ll also use the Coregeous balls to start to tune in to our bellies and stimulate digestion.
This class will also include a brief introduction to the Primal/Paleo lifestyle. You’ll learn why this approach is helpful for many people, and you’ll leave with some helpful tips on how to start to incorporate healthy habits such as eating whole foods, moderating sugar intake, and developing good sleep hygiene into your daily life.
Foundation Tune Up – May 23rd 5:45PM – 7:15PM
Your feet have a pretty thankless job. They get stuffed into leather coffins all day, they can’t breathe, and they can barely move or wriggle. On top of that, they have to carry the weight of your entire body all day long. And then the weekend comes, and you repeatedly slap them on unforgiving concrete for a several miles. And then we curse them when they hurt. Show them a little love and affection and take them out for a date night with the Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls.
In this workshop you will learn some fun and relaxing therapy ball techniques and mindful movements that will help you treat and train your foundation, all the way from the tips of your toes to the crest of your hips.
This class will be great for runners, cyclists, or walkers (or movers of any type).
