Tai Chi

Tai Chi was a form of internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and health benefits. Tai Chi today has become a modified exercise using all the techniques as a means to attain healing qualities rather that combative awareness. The slow and fluid movements practiced in Tai Chi improve the body’s alignment, posture, strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, and stamina. Tai Chi provides practitioners with an overall toning and strengthened of specific muscles.

Therapeutic Yoga

This is a survey class that provides an introduction to the methods used in the up and coming field of Yoga Therapy. The objective is to assess and help balance the body to more move more fluidly and recover from injury and disease. We frequently have over-used a muscle, had a minor accident or perhaps an Outpatient surgery and have heard that yoga would be good for us (from a doctor or a friend) or perhaps want to continue or begin a yoga practice to keep us centered in our world. We will investigate postural and Range of Motion through movement and understand how to modify poses with props to make them generally accessible to everybody in every body. We will investigate the role of fascia and learn how to manipulate it. We also will look at Ayurveda, the Yogic “science of the body,” as a means to analyze and gain insight into our body’s rhythms. This class will cover basic bone and muscle anatomy as it applies to yoga postures (asana) and instruct in the proper use of props to modify many yoga poses.

Intro to Pranayama & Meditation

This class will focus on five of the eight limbs of Yoga that were defined by Patanjali more that 5000 years ago in India. The ancient physical and philosophical practice of yoga is a system that can help manage stress and improve our overall wellness in a high-paced world. We will explore how we breathe and practice various breathing techniques (pranamayas) that can be used to affect mood and physiology. We will also study the various practices of meditation as a means of becoming more grounded and centered, finding a calm state that we can carry with us into our day. Many classes will include a series of postures (Asana) as a warm up followed by Pranayama (mindful breathing) practice and then ending each session in a form of meditation.
