You are welcome to try out different classes to see what best fits with your schedule, goals and ability.

Gentle and Therapeutic

Class contingent on student needs. During check in at outset of class, students make requests based on their needs and concerns that day. Teacher will weave poses and therapeutic practices together to create a sequence addressing their requests.

 

Gentle

Designed for those interested in this life enhancing practice but put off by pretzel-like images. The practice of yoga is meant to be adapted to each individual’s needs and capabilities, while developing self-awareness and kindness. You will use props and adapted poses to create a safe experience suitable for those who wish, for any reason, to move slowly and intentionally.

Beginning

Provides a thorough introduction to basic seated and standing poses. You will practice mindful movement, learn principles of safe alignment, build strength, flexibility and stamina while laying the foundation for a deeper yoga practice.

 

Level I

Build on your foundation, deepen and refine your basic poses. Begin to explore more challenging poses including preparation for inversions and backbends, while cultivating mindfulness, sensitivity, courage and equanimity.

 

Level II

Progress into a deeper more introspective practice. Learn to attend to increasingly subtle cues of your body. Explore more challenging variations of the basic poses and learn more complex poses. Refine inversions and backbends, while continuing to cultivate mindfulness, sensitivity, courage and equanimity.

Intermediate Datura Style™ Belly Dance Classes with Letty Limbach

These classes are for dancers with at least one year of belly dance experience who would like to push their technique to the next level, grow creatively, and find a supportive community of fellow dancers.  We focus on both Rachel Brice’s Datura Style™ Technique Studies and Datura Style™ Group Improvisation and Combos.

Datura Style™ studies are hard-hitting, efficient belly dance technique practices that, when practiced over time, create strong, clean isolations, powerful, graceful arms, and flexibility in layering and timing. These studies are so rich in things to work on, you will come away from class with a truly lifelong technique tool. Datura Style™ Group Improvisation contains a wide vocabulary of fusion- and ATS-influenced movements and combinations that can be used in both group and individual choreography combinations.

Mindfulness/Meditation with Justin Whitaker

Scientific studies show that a regular Meditation and Mindfulness practice can reduce stress, increase immune function, decrease pain, improve productivity and self-control, and physically change your brain for the better. In this four-week course we will draw from recent scientific developments, 2500 years of Buddhist wisdom, and our own individual experience in developing a regular habit of meditation and mindfulness in our everyday lives. Please plan to attend all four classes as this is a progressive series.

In our class we will cover a detailed schedule including: 

1: Introducing mindfulness, posture, body-scan and breathing

2: Community matters, Heart-meditation (metta or loving-kindness) 

3: Happiness, ethics, and everyday life, Hindrances to deep meditation

4: Open awareness, taking meditation into the world
