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

  • A brief walking meditation
  • And a final silent meditation to end the workshop

Saturday, March 7, 1 – 4 pm
Register for The Lateral Lines, $50
Running from the outer edge of the foot, up the outer leg, continuing on to the lateral hip and trunk and on to the side of our neck and skull, the lateral line balances and supports us front to back and left to right. It stabilizes the trunk and the legs so we don’t buckle to the ground as we move through our daily activities. Imbalance along the lateral lines can show up as a tendency toward ankle pronation or supination, can influence how the knees track, can lead to side-bending in the lumbar spine, can cause lateral shifts in the pelvis and ribcage, and can lead to restriction in the neck and shoulders. When balanced and optimally aligned, the lateral lines help us move through the world with grace, stability, ease, and agility.

Tai Chi is often described as a form of moving meditation. The art was originally developed in China as a martial art and today is mostly practiced as a relaxing form of low impact exercise that can practiced by almost anyone. When practiced for health and fitness the slow meditative movements of Tai Chi can have many benefits including:

• Improved strength.
• Greater flexibility.
• Better balance.
• Decreased stress, anxiety and depression.
• Improvement in overall sense of well being.

The class will consist of warm up exercises and will teach a 18 movement short form of Tai Chi  that once learned can be practiced in as a little as 5 minutes.

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.

with Katie Louvat, RYT500, YACEP
Saturday, May 2, 1 pm – 4 pm
Register for The Arm Lines, $50 
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.
