"Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars." -- Max Ehrmann
WHO: While my "gentle" class is perfect for beginners, it also suits any student seeking mindful movement, those recovering from injury, or students who want to maintain balance and well-being. Class vibe is warm and welcoming!
WHAT: Mind-body connection underlies every aspect of this class. We begin with breath awareness, move through a whole body warm-up, then focus on a particular body part or skill, such as balance, core awareness or foot health. Of course, final relaxation, called savanna, finishes our one-hour class.
WHERE: The Madison Center,3829 N. Stafford St., Arlington VA 22207.
WHEN: Fridays, 10:20am - 11:20am.
HOW: Use of props, chairs, and specific verbal instruction will ensure an accessible experience. My approach is breath-oriented and alignment-based, using Hatha as the grounding principle. You'll feel encouraged to "be where you are," and go from there.
