AYURVEDA DOSHA YOGA
with Christie Rochette
Ayurveda is one of the oldest known medical sciences, which literally translates into “life knowledge.” It helps us to rediscover our own elemental nature and understand how to work with it, rather than against it, in order to achieve homeostasis. This class looks at Yoga through the lens of Ayurveda and incorporates a few different styles of Yoga into one practice to result in balance for all body types. Typically, there is a blend of Pranayama (breath work) while centering and grounding, Yin Yoga or stretching postures to open up, Vinyasa Yoga Flow to create heat in the body, cool down poses, and a Yoga Nidra meditative body scan before Savasana (supine position). This is available for all levels of students from beginner to advanced!

THERAPEUTIC QI GONG
with Marine Mayfield
Qi Gong is a gentle exercise involving whole body movement, mind focus, and deep breathing. It opens the body’s energy pathways, promotes smooth energy flow, and restores organ harmony. This self-cultivation practice produces powerful healing results. Qi Gong is a moving meditation. It is not only physical fitness, but also of mind, body, emotion, and spirit. If we move too quickly, have too much excitement, and too little patience, it causes us to have a short temper, make frequent mistakes, or suffer from anxiety or depression. We need slow and nurturing practice to help us rejuvenate our energy and balance our emotion.
There are many types of Qi Gong that differ in movements and postures. However, all forms have similar benefits, some more focused than the others. Qi Gong can target certain illnesses, increase longevity, flexibility, strength and endurance, improve balance, and decrease pain. This 60min class is for all ages and levels of health.
CANCELED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

RasamayaBarre is a challenging, empowering, effective, and fun form of exercise that utilizes your own body weight, a ballet barre, free weights, and other props to sculpt, tone, and lengthen your body. The movements in a barre class are drawn from ballet, yoga, Pilates, and orthopedic exercises. The ballet barre is used to help with coordination and balance. It also allows us to position the body in unique ways that create a truly full body workout. Classes are timed to upbeat and fun music.
