Nothing to seek...everything is here. If we try to get rid of something, it will naturally remain. If we try to weaken a habit, it will naturally remain strong. If we try to push away our thoughts, they will naturally return.  If we try to get rid of our pain, we will suffer all the more. This is the secret of our path; gentleness and flexibility bring the results that force and rigidity fail to achieve.
-The Tao Te Ching, Chapter 36



Level 1 Summer Reiki Class
Father's Day!   Sunday June 21
9am-4pm (hour break for lunch)
Taught by Reiki Master Shannon Buck
Reiki is very useful for stress management. It supports the body's natural abilities to heal & is very soothing and relaxing. Scientifically, research shows that brain wave patterns of both the practitioner and the receiver become synchronized in the alpha state (deep relaxation and meditation). Once a person is attuned to the Reiki energy, she or he will have that ability to share Reiki with others and use on themselves for the rest of their lives.

Yoga & Arthritis with Marian
Weds- June 3-July 8      1:30pm-2:30pm
6 week series $48
Early studies have shown positive results when people with arthritis practice yoga, with measured improvement in joint health, physical functioning, and mental/emotional well-being.  Perhaps most importantly, yoga has an important positive effect on quality of life. People with arthritis may also enjoy yoga more than traditional forms of exercise, and exercise enjoyment is an important predictor of adherence.  This is particularly important considering that, on average, 50% of sedentary individuals will drop out of any exercise program.

Evening Yin Yoga Starts Soon!
Thursdays 6pm
June 4-July 9
Taught by Colleen Chamberlain
Yin Yoga gently works to align ligaments, joints and bones of the body and reshape connective tissue. Suitable for almost all levels of students, Yin Yoga poses focus primarily on the connective tissues of the lower spine, hips and pelvis.
The pace of a yin class can initially seem very slow, (even non-productive). In fact, yin yoga is actually quite challenging, due to the long duration of the poses. Be prepared to hold the postures anywhere from five to fifteen minutes for them to do their job on your tight spots.
