Relax. Release. Relieve. with Jennie Berger & Elena Caicedo

Contemplative Movement Series – Practice

Process-Based Contemplative Movement 

In these classes students will learn The Process which is a framework that will help achieve deep, lasting peace and an internally sourced experience of happiness, regardless of circumstances or situation. The aim is to fully embody our experience of practice through The Process combining theory, contemplation and action so we can learn to be fully present in our bodies as they are. Students are encouraged to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete and thorough experience.

1:30 – 3PM Practice

In this class we build on the theory of The Process and learn how to apply it through the use of movement as a means to explore how the busyness of the mind drives our perception of ourselves and our lives. How we show up for practice is how we show up for our life. Through this contemplative approach to practice we begin to see ourselves and the world around us more clearly as we nurture the well spring of vitality that is always present within us.

No experience is required, however students will benefit from taking the Theory and Practice class first as an introduction to The Process. To learn more about The Process visit The Meaning Maker Movement.

Contemplative Movement Series — Theory and Practice with Siobhan McAuley

Process-Based Contemplative Movement

In these classes students will learn The Process which is a framework that will help achieve deep, lasting peace and an internally sourced experience of happiness, regardless of circumstances or situation. The aim is to fully embody our experience of practice through The Process combining theory, contemplation and action so we can learn to be fully present in our bodies as they are. Students are encouraged to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete and thorough experience.

 

Contemplative Movement – Theory & Practice

This class introduces students to The Process framework that we use to understand how the body communicates to us and through us. Each class is like a workshop and begins with a teaching followed by deep rest and seated meditation. 
 
In order for our bodies to utilize their innate healing capacities we must first learn to dismantle our chronic states of heightened anxiety, tension and a lack of focus that typify modern life. Once a deep state of relaxation is present we can begin to access the parasympathetic nervous system which is needed for lasting healing to take place while cultivating a stillness of mind that we can carry with us into  our daily lives. 
 
All are welcome. No movement or yoga experience is required, only an open mind and a willingness to learn, grow and heal from within. 
*Students may wish to enroll in both Contemplative Movement classes for a complete & thorough experience of the practice.

Alignment Yoga – Level 2 with Ron Felix

This class is an upper level class so you have already earned your stripes by being in several series of an alignment style (like Iyengar ) yoga at Level 1. This class builds on that beginner’s level, refines it with more advanced poses and introduces you to a theme type practice. A theme could be a class focusing on back bends or forward bends etc. In addition you will be working on an inversion practice as your knowledge and experience as a beginner has taught you what not to do as compared to what you can do.

This class is taught in an 8-week series but drop-ins @ $15/class will be allowed with permission from the teacher.

JANUARY 30: For the Love of Feet: Our feet are so vital to our daily life supporting us and moving us forward, yet we often take them for granted. Learn how to keep your feet in great shape and learn the connection between proper foot alignment and joint pain elsewhere in the body. You will do a full yoga class paying attention to how the placement of your feet affects the pose and the muscles that support you.

FEBRUARY 6: The Power of Breath: Our breath is the sleeping giant of our health! Let’s wake it! Leaning to consciously use the breath in movement and meditation helps make our lives easier. For this workshop we break down the breath into its four parts: inhale, retention, exhale, and suspension. Knowing these parts of the breath help us craft breathing exercises to help navigate our daily lives. We learn how to use the breath to help in yoga postures, and how to use the breath to help with stress reduction.

FEBRUARY 13: Lengthening the Spine: Having a long strong spine is critical to our overall health. Yoga helps us become more in touch with our spine and how its strength affects our limbs and posture. Necks and low backs send many of us to the doctor as we age. Learn ways to take care of your spine so that it stays strong throughout your life. We will do a spinal health yoga sequence and revisit how the breath and the feet aid in spinal health.

FEBRUARY 20: Linking Movement and Breath: Building on the basics of the earlier workshops, we learn how to use the breath to aid in movement both in a yoga class and in our daily lives. This workshop helps you find the grace of movement. Learning to move with your breath is wonderful for overall health both physical and mental.

FEBRUARY 27: Yoga off the Mat: In this workshop we review what we have learned in January and find ways to apply these concepts into our daily lives. We will learn simple ayurvedic practices to enhance our lives and help us live more in balance with nature and our daily rhythms.

MARCH 6: Crafting a Home Practice:  Learn how to sequence a 20-minute practice that you can do easily at home. The focus of these weekday workshops is to empower students to transition into being their own teacher! Learn why poses are done at certain times of a class. Work to craft a doable daily practice that helps you stay centered and focused.

It was clear from an early age that Jennie and yoga were destined for one another.

A youth gymnast, she also dabbled in various forms of dance and eventually, in 1993, found a local yoga studio in town and took her first class. She instantly fell in love and over the 20 plus years that followed has continued to explore various types of yoga styles and teachers around the world.

Jennie’s training is rooted in classic Ashtanga yet she’s not very traditional when it comes to yoga, or life for that matter. 😉 She adores stirring her own blend of colors into every class and sees each practice as a blank canvas with the opportunity to paint any picture you want. This is, after all, your practice. She has a deep passion for animals, music, health and nutrition, and wants nothing more than to share her love of yoga with others.
