Join Russell Persson for a 90-minute workshop focusing on mindfulness meditation and present moment awareness. He welcomes anyone new to the practice of meditation as well as experienced practitioners. This workshop is designed to help participants experience the benefits of present moment awareness and cultivate, through guided and silent meditation, loving awareness and the refinement of our innate abilities for concentration and stillness.

The workshop will include:

  • A short series of movements inspired by qigong to bring awareness to the physical body
  • A guided meditation with focus on the breath to cultivate concentration and compassion and to begin to see, with precision, our distractions and addictive thought patterns
  • Questions and discussion on our experience
  • A brief walking meditation
  • And a final silent meditation to end the workshop

EXPLORING THE SPIRAL LINES
MYOFASCIAL MOVEMENT & MEDITATION SERIES
with Katie Louvat, RYT500, YACEP

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP RUN THROUGH ZOOM.

Saturday, July, 11 1pm – 4 pm
Register for The Spiral Lines, $50
This workshop will focus on the Spiral Line (SPL)—a double helix-shaped pathway of muscle and fascia that links the body from head to toe and supports us with movements like walking, twisting, turning the head, and helps to maintain balance across all plains. When out of balance, the spiral line can create, compensate for, and maintain twists, rotations and lateral shifts in the body. When balanced and optimally aligned, the spiral lines help us move through the world with grace, stability, ease, and agility.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP RUN THROUGH ZOOM.

Saturday, August 8, 1 pm – 4 pm

This workshop will focus on the Arm Lines—four layers of muscle and connective tissue that make it possible for us to interact with, manipulate, and respond to the world around us using our hands and arms. When out of balance, the arm lines can contribute to shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand problems like carpal tunnel, elbow and shoulder impingements, chronic muscular pain in the neck and shoulders and more. When balanced and optimally aligned, the arm lines help us move through the world with grace, stability, ease, and agility.
