MoonDanceYoga currently offers 5 weekly online classes that you can do from the comfort and safety of your own home. All you need is an internet enabled device – a tablet, a phone or a laptop computer and internet connection. A quiet space for yourself and mat to lie on. I will be able to see you and give you instruction for either class and I also provide the platform (zoom) to communicate through.
All classes cater to a range of audiences: they are accessible to multiple levels of practice and abilities.
Monday’s class is yoga for your back. It is utilizing a wealth of knowledge from the Iyengar tradition as well knowledge other disciples, adding yoga props to facilitate correct alignment and ease of execution. We include a body scan, a mindfulness meditation, a little bit of functional movement to warm the body, bring flexibility to the spine and oil creaky joints to start the class. This class is specifically geared toward those dealing with back pain, but all will benefit. This class will start on March 23.
Tuesday and Friday’s morning class is for those who like to improve the function of their body and mind and also would like a little more than movement exploration. This class is a blend of exploring function through somatice movement and taking it to a yoga practice, focusing on functional movement and process.
Wednesday is for Feldenkrais Seniors, specifically selected lesson for older populations experiencing joint pain, loss of some function – as in getting up and down the floor – and other movement difficulties. You’ll be well taken care of and your movement will definitely improve.
Thursday‘s offering of Pure Feldenkrais(R) is for you, if you’re interested in better overall function accomplished with a minimum amount of effort. Walking better, dancing lighters, running faster or just lifting the groceries or the kids out of the car easier. Learn how to discern between necessary and unnecessary effort, easy and hard, simply streamlined and overly complicated. This is probably the ultimate body/mind practice using very small detailed movements and instruction to allow the intelligence of your body and nervous system find new, optimal ways of movement and function. It isprocess oriented, where we are looking for the optimal path/way for your system to function. Since you are encouraged to try and retry different ways and variations with minute changes and details to a carefully designed sequence of movements, it is not only your body that is challenged to find the optimal path, but your brain as well. At the end, your body and your brain will thank you for it.
