Mondays

Yoga for Everyday Living - 10:00am-11:15am
September 17 to December 19, 2018 (NO class Wednesday, 10/17 or Monday, 10/22).

With a therapeutic touch, this class offers gentle, slow movement bringing mindful awareness to asana as we stretch and strengthen the body and calm the mind. We learn to recognize and reduce chronic stress and distraction by observing and transforming our mental and physical habits. Should accommodations be necessary, adaptations and modifications to poses will be offered to students in this wonderful opportunity of self discovery. What is learned on the mat can then be taken into the world to affect your everyday life. No prior yoga experience is necessary as both beginning and experienced students are welcome. Students may attend class once or twice per week and begin attending class anytime during the ongoing session.
6 classes for $90; drop-in fee is $20.

Qigong for Heart and Circulatory Health - 5:00pm-6:00pm
10-Week Session begins September 24. (We will have class on Columbus Day.)

The Chinese say that the key to good health is a calm and tranquil Heart/(Mind). For the Chinese, the Heart is more than a pump that gets blood and nourishment to every part of the body. As the "emperor,"the Heart is in charge of the qi messaging that keeps everything running in a smooth and harmonious way. The Heart is also said to govern the mind and serve as the resting place of the spirit. That's a long to-do list. This class features a short form designed by a Chinese master specifically for Heart health. We will also work on practices that are used to regularize hypertension and enhance whole-body circulation of blood and qi. Beginning and experienced students are welcome. Space is limited and early registration is recommended.
Session fee is $150; drop-in fee is $18 per class.
Instructor: Rebecca Pope (530)792-7127 or qigongforhealth@gmail.com

Qigong as a Mind/Body Practice - 6:00pm-7:00pm
10-Week Session begins September 24. (We will have class on Columbus Day.)

As moving meditation, qigong uses simple accessible movements to work body and mind simultaneously. Historically (although this is changing), western medicine has seen mind and body as separate entities (you see your internist for an infection and a therapist for your anger/anxiety/depression). Chinese medicine sees us as a complete connected package: body, mind, and spirit are one. With a regular qigong practice, we see benefits for both body and mind. This class assumes that you have had a long hard day and concentrates on simple practices for releasing mental and physical tension as well as replenishing body, mind and spirit. Our goal will be to get body, mind and spirit flowing together. Emphasis on quiet practice. Beginning and experienced students are welcome. Space is limited and early registration is recommended.
Session fee is $150; drop-in fee is $18 per class.
Instructor: Rebecca Pope (530)792-7127 or qigongforhealth@gmail.com

Slow Flow Yoga - 7:15pm-8:45pm
Based in the Vinyasa style, this class utilizes an even and steady breath to support fluidity in movement as well as focused exploration in held poses. Poses are sequenced to gradually open specific areas of the body to allow energy flow and to build toward deeper variations of a focus pose. Classes will include pranayama (breath practices), sun salutations, and inversions. Some yoga experience is helpful but not required. This class is on-going on a drop in basis.
$10 per class cash or check only.

Tuesdays

Yoga for Embodiment - 12:00pm-12:50pm
5-Week Session
October 16 to November 13, 2018

You are invited to meet your body right where you are in the present moment. Yoga for Embodiment is based on the methodology of Trauma Sensitive Yoga; an evidence based practice of bringing your body to the healing process, to integrate, to empower, and to transcend the effects of trauma. Through a series of mindful movements and breath, you will be invited to notice sensation and make choices based on your experience in that moment. Every shape and transition is offered as an invitation and there are no hands-on assists. ALL are welcome!
Participants may choose to pre-register OR drop-in to class.
$20 drop-in/single class or $90 for the 5-class series

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction - 7:15pm-9:15pm
9-Week Session

This program is designed to help participants heal by entering into a new relationship with, essentially, the present moment.

Participants can develop a life-affirming approach to living with many stress-influenced conditions such as anxiety, anger, depression, headaches, high blood pressure, sleep disturbances, and gastrointestinal problems. It is the practice of cultivating non-judgemental awareness in day-to-day life.

Vinyasa Yoga - 7:00pm-8:30pm
This class seeks to bring body and mind together through the breath and fluid movement. This class utilizes deliberate sequencing, pranayama (breath work), and mindful movement through variations of sun salutation in order to open and prepare the body for peak poses (e.g. inversions, arm balances, backbends). Because this class maintains a steady pace, some knowledge of basic yoga poses is strongly encouraged. Prior vinyasa experience is not necessary, but knowledge of sun salutation is helpful. This class is on-going on a drop in basis.
$10 per class cash or check only.
