Chakras, Shoulders and Hips: 9:30-11:30am: $35

This special class is specifically designed for those who wish to honor, open and strengthen the hips and shoulders and explore the chakra system. The meaning of the word chakra comes from the Sanskrit word “wheel,” and may be experienced as an energy center in the body.  In this workshop, you will explore how to detect and release unconscious holding patterns throughout your body, with a focus on your shoulders and hips. You will become attuned to the location of the chakras and the effects of opening and moving your energy within your body. Develop the skills to achieve greater energetic freedom and enjoy an increase in clarity, flexibility, strength and energy.

 

Potluck 11:30-1pm

 

Balance and Inversions: 1-3:30pm: $40

Balance is not simply holding or fixing yourself in a static position but allowing your awareness to expand from your center outward through your whole body.  In Alie’s class you will discover a balance between grounding and enlightening, doing and undoing, relaxing and energizing, and centering and expanding.  Together we will establish balance in the standing postures, and then we will explore the invigorating and empowering effect of hand balancing and inversions. It’s so fun turning upside-down!  Plus there are so many different ways of doing inversions that learning your options becomes another source of empowerment.  In this class Alie will incorporate meditation, joy, creative sequencing and innovative pose variations, while emphasizing the rhythm of the breath as a way of bringing the poses to life.  Alie’s intent is to offer a fun, stretchy class wherein you experience your natural state of peace.
