This workshop will help you to identify difficult situations in your body, listen to what your body is signaling, and create a connection between your mind and body.

Intro to Chakras & Pastel Art 

Align the Body with Movement and Art

with Susan Cohen
In Studio | Saturdays Apr 15 –  29
1:00pm to 4:00pm
Cost: $275 + $20 supplies

Do you feel blocked, stagnant? Realigning your chakras allows the body’s energy to flow naturally through the body, which brings balance. 

What’s a chakra? Chakra means “wheel” and refers to energy points in your body. Visualize, if you will, seven spinning disks of energy running up the spine that correspond to bundles of nerves, major organs, and areas of your energetic body that affect both your emotional and physical well-being. These spinning disks of energy should stay open and aligned; however, when life’s challenges press down on us, the disks may slow or even stop and cause a blockage. 

This workshop runs for three weeks: April 15, April 22, and April 29 from 1-4p. The first session will cover the root, sacral and solar plexus chakras. The second session will cover the heart and throat chakras, and the third session will cover the third eye and crown chakras. Susan uses general movements, foods, pastel & pencil drawings, and other fun activities that you can bring into your everyday life to help keep your chakras in balance. Once enrolled, the instructor will contact you with additional details. 

Join Susan Cohen, yoga instructor, massage therapist, foot reflexologist, natural foods cooking teacher & chef, for this balancing workshop.

Greatness through Regulation Workshop

Deepen Body Awareness, Relaxation, Flexibility, Strength, and Resilience

with Mike Thomas
In Studio | New Dates Coming Soon
 

Anxiety, depression, hyperactivity, loss of focus, low motivation or energy, poor digestion, tight and/or painful muscles, emotional ups and downs, defensive/aggressive behavior in relationships, and even autoimmune conditions…what do all these have in common? A dysregulated nervous system. This leaves the mind and body in a survival state that leaves the body open to all these experiences. How can you change this?

Join Mike Thomas, who has over 20 years of experience working with groups and individuals to optimize their wellness and quality of relationships through mindful movement and habit optimization, in his new workshop: Greatness through Regulation.

This workshop runs for 6 weeks, each session 2 hours long. You will learn alignment principles; nervous system regulation techniques to deepen awareness; how to reduce stress; how to utilize the breath, and improve your overall quality of life.

This will be accomplished through a medley of mindful movements such as Tension/Trauma Releasing Exercises (TRE®️), Tai Chi, breathwork, Yoga, and various fitness exercises.  This allows the body to deepen awareness, relaxation, flexibility, strength, and resilience—supporting the capacity to learn, grow, develop competence and mastery, and direct your bodily state with more choice and intentionality.

After this 6 week workshop, you will be able to incorporate many of the practices you learned into your everyday.

For information, contact Mike Thomas at holisticfitnesslifestyle@gmail.com. Or visit his website.

Brain Health Yoga and Support

Learn to manage your neurological symptoms

with Christine Lawrence
Virtual | New Dates Coming Soon
Cost: $35
 
 

Did you know that the brain and nervous system are continuously regenerating? 

Brain Health Yoga and Support focuses on the neuroplasticity of your brain. Similar to muscles, regions of your brain become larger and stronger the more they are used. So practicing yoga with this in mind can help you manage your neurological symptoms and make you more aware of the brain-body connection.

This virtual workshop is on Sunday, January 29th, from 11 – 12p. Christine will spend 40 minutes discussing the brain and the body and brain connection and showing specific yoga techniques, leaving 15 to 20 minutes for questions.
