Friday Night Community Class
Join Circle Yoga teachers one Friday night each month for the Off the Mat Community Class. These donation-based classes are designed to allow students to explore yoga practices and philosophy beyond the physical practice of postures or learn about other traditions and modalities that contribute to good health and well being. Yoga teachers might focus on topics such as pranayama, philosophy, Ayurveda, and meditation. Other teachers might share teachings rooted in mindfulness, Reiki, Feldenkrais®, or other systems of practice. Off the Mat classes do not include a practice of yoga postures.
Suggested donation is $5 minimum. Register in advance to reserve your space. Donations will be accepted at the door. These “all levels” classes are open to everyone–from beginners to more experienced students. Like all adult classes at the studio, Off the Mat classes are open to students ages 16 and up.
Upcoming Off the Mat Classes
Opening Creative Channels with the Feldenkrais Method®
with Seth Dellinger
Friday, March 31, 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Is creativity a magical power possessed only by musicians, painters, dancers and other “artists”? Or is it an innate human quality that we all possess, a rich resource that can improve anyone’s life, regardless of age, profession or any other circumstance? If it is, in fact, a universal quality, then why do we so often define people, including ourselves as being “more” or “less” creative? What are some common obstacles that prevent us from accessing our creativity? What can we do to open up our creative channels? This Off the Mat class will explore these questions from the perspective of the Feldenkrais Method®, a unique approach to human development that uses a combination of movement and directed attention to create transformational change.
Yoga and Ayurveda for a Healthy Spring
with Debbie Helfeld
Friday, April 21, 6:00 – 7:00 pm
Spring is the season for cleansing, renewal and growth. Just as we clean the debris in our yards that has accumulated during the winter, spring is also a good time to remove the toxins and heaviness that have built up in our bodies over the winter. Come and get a taste of things you can do to help purify and cleanse your body and mind in the spring. We will review both dietary and lifestyle tips to improve digestion and increase energy and vitality. A delicious digestive tea will be served at the end of the class.
