Our offerings

Somatic yoga for stress

Somatics is based on ancient Hatha Yoga teachings and the modern movement therapies of Hanna Somatics. Somatic yoga is a very gentle style of yoga focused on strengthening and stretching the body (particularly the spine/back) and on reconnecting with the inner life-force.
Classes feature slow & repetitive movements, meditation, relaxation, efficient breathing and developing strength of core muscles and unfolding sensory awareness.  An added benefit is the ability 'to relax on a dime' , leaving you  feeling calm and peaceful.  Comfortable clothes are all that is necessary.

Yoga Basics:

 Learn the foundational postures of yoga . This hatha yoga class combines strength, flexibility, and endurance through precise attention to the body and the breath. Often in workshop style, the method is safe, orderly, and progressive, and the postures are adaptable to meet individualized needs. Myofascial release techniques may be used with props such as Therapy balls, blocks and straps. Particular attention is paid to ensuring proper alignment and providing modification for all levels of ability.   Learn how to reduce your stress and get calm through breath techniques.

Yoga Flow: For more experienced students,  this faster paced class students move through connected sequences that progressively build to invite the body to open and build strength and flexibility. A moving meditation that will build heat and truly keep you in the moment.

McMillan LLP 

“Terri presented a chair yoga session to a group in our office. With her gentle guidance, yet tremendous experience, we all walked away with simple exercises that will help us in our professional environment and also at home. The session was very beneficial and I would recommend it to any organization. It is proof that short, quick exercises and stretches have better impact over the long-run.” McMillan LLP  

 

 

"If you work at a desk all ( like I do) you get caught up in you work, and sitting at a computer all day….well, your body just locks into one position and muscles get really tight. You’re so involved in what you are doing that you don’t feel your stiff neck or sore low back until the end of the day.  Terri’s chair yoga program gave me tools to stretch my back, hips shoulders, wrists and neck.  She also taught us how to sit with a comfortable posture, the better I sat, the better I could breath and stay relaxed.  I never realized that I was perching on my left side and that I was always holding my breath!  What an eye opener!”
