Three Unique Sessions

Explore three unique approaches to body-mind well being. Each session will last around one hour:

  • Awareness Through Movement - Luxuriate and de-stress with this gentle, mat-based class. We will rediscover the childlike joy of natural learning, using curiosity and flow, but very little effort. Expect to revisit early childhood movement explorations like rolling and using your trunk as you bear weight on your arms to look around to explore the world. As you get out of your head and into your bodily sensations, your whole self will feel greater ease, calm and mobility.

  • Writing On The Mat - A gentle movement class, loosely based on Pilates, in which the body becomes a prompt for writing. We will alternate between moving, writing and sharing to explore our own interpretations of our bodies. Something as simple as a stretch can focus our attention on the experiences, memories and emotions that we hold physically and that we may, if we choose, put into words.

  • Transformative Yoga - details to be confirmed
