Mindfulness Through Movement

With Shari Sunshine

August 7 - 9, 2018

This event is SOLD OUT. Please call to be added to the wait list. Thank you

Similar to Tai Chi or gentle yoga, Mindfulness Through Movement classes use slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. These lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing. Students also notice a great improvement in the ability to do yoga postures with greater ease.

Students will be guided through a sequence of movements, encouraging them to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. You may become aware of unexpected and interesting changes in your body and your mind. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout the body can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur through the neuromuscular repatterning that happens in a Mindfulness Through Movement lesson!

Mindfulness Through Movement is coming home to the natural wisdom of your body.
