This course is open to bodyworkers, teachers AND dedicated students of Pilates & yoga.

In this exciting and illuminating 4-part course, we will dive deep into the fascinating world of the anatomy of movement. We’ll learn about exact location and function of the key joints of the body, as well as origin, attachment and function of important “mover” muscles. We’ll explore the emotional body and chakras and learn how these energetic systems play a vital role in one’s well-being and comfort. To appeal to various learning styles of the participants, we’ll use a dynamic combination of lecture, slideshow, visual and tactile aids, q&a, hands on explorations and movement sequences to learn about the function and design of the human body.

Tame the pain

WITH: Lila Heller
WHEN: Saturday, October 20, 1-3pm
COST: $50 for the first 10 people to sign up, $60 thereafter  |  REGISTER

Join Lila Heller, Senior Pilates and movement specialist for this eye opening view into why we experience pain and how we can relieve it. Every body and every person is different and experiences pain differently. In this two-hour workshop, we look at the body as a whole system and begin to understand the neurology of pain and some of the many reasons we experience it. Then, Lila will guide you through exercises that help you understand your own unique body and nervous system, and that help lower overall stresses in the body. You will leave with information and applicable techniques to help you navigate the tricky path of pain.

relax: Release into Fall

WITH: Kari Jacobsen and Michelle Cordero
WHEN: Sunday Oct. 21, 1-3PM
COST: $50 Early Bird if paid in full by 10/15; $60 thereafter |  REGISTER

Join Kari and Michelle for a deeply relaxing and restorative practice designed to help your nervous system adjust to seasonal change. The transition into Fall can leave us racing in our minds and tired in our bodies. This Class will give your nervous system a chance to relax, so that you can more easily synch your energy with the new routines of Fall.

Class features a simple Yin and Restorative yoga practice, during which Kari and Michelle will offer nurturing hands-on work inspired by trainings in Cranio Sacral Therapy. Feel first-hand the power of more quiet practices of yoga. Kari will guide you through a series of long stays in yin and restorative poses. As you learn to relax the body into the moment, through support from props and mindful awareness to sensation, the mind becomes more attentive to the body. Beneath the typical thought patterns and through the body’s language of sensation lives our inner wisdom… a place that knows what’s right for you and how to live healthily. In this practice Kari and Michelle will spend quality time working with each student in gentle touch that encourages the body into progressive relaxation.

Class limited to a small group to maximize hands-on attention to each student. All levels welcome, no matter your flexibility, fitness level or experience.
