Qi Gong and Tai Chi are ancient holistic systems with roots in Chinese medicine. This standing practice will help you coordinate body posture, movement, breathing and meditation to improve organ function, gain better balance, increase flexibility, and provide overall well-being.

Yoga for Inflexibility

Thursdays with Ashley


Before you can be flexible, you have to become joint-mobile. This class will focus on moving the joints in the ways they like to be moved in their sockets, while using bolsters and blocks to stretch/ counter stretch repetitively trained muscles into a more open and spacious place. In this class you will also learn the sacred act of taking a pause and practical tools such as breath work and meditation.

In this class you will be guided to rest, recharge and renew the body through a series of yoga postures lasting approximately five minutes each. The use of yoga props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets assist the body in resetting the central nervous system.

On Tuesday evenings, Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils will be used to experience deeper levels of calm. $2 additional per drop-in or membership. Please contact Ashley or Christina if you have any known sensitivities or allergies to essential oils prior to class.
