Meditative Classes

While meditation is incoprorated into almost every class, we do not hold full meditation classes that teach the techniques. For a regular meditation practice, we believe it is important to learn meditation in a retreat environment, where you can fully focus on the technique for several days.

There are two main types of meditations: transcendental (http://www.tm.org, paid one-on-ones with teachers) and vipassana (http://www.dhamma.org, free 10-day retreats)

Below are classes that are light in movement and heavier in meditation and stillness.

Olivia Jeffers currently holds a Move into Meditation class on Wednesdays at 6pm, and Mondays at 7:30pm starting in October. This class is focused on therapeutic movement, manual adjustments, guided self-reflexology and finishes with guided body scan meditation and savasana.

April Njari holds a Traditional Ashtanka on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12pm, which is light yoga and incorporates breath work (pranayama) – which has some meditative effect.

Kat Ellis holds Yin Yoga classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm, which hold poses for 3-5 minutes working the connective tissues.

Hongwei Jeffers holds Qigong classes which focuses on moving the qi (energy) through the body in gentle and repetitive movements.
