What happens in a session?

Connect, Move, Relax

While Mindful Essentrics is a movement class, every session begins with joining. During this time, you’ll get attuned with your body. Each session is about an hour and fifteen minutes.

The movement portion is similar to Tai Chi, in that we are constantly moving. I will describe where you should be feeling the movement and why it’s beneficial. Receiving this information experientially is what deepens body awareness.

After we move, we relax into a supportive Yin Yoga posture. It’s a powerful practice in receiving, as well as a study of what gets in the way. This meditative energy is then carried over into a few minutes of Free Flow Writing that ends the session.

Throughout class, I’ll guide you to tune in, listen and hear what your body is saying. The goal is for you to have a fully embodied experience of self. And my hope is to ignite a fire within you to engage in self-care from a place of love and internal joy.

Additionally skills include:

Breathing techniques to bring balance to the nervous system

Postures to learn to listen to your body and develop strength, flexibility, and ease

Mindfulness and compassion techniques to improve your relationship to thoughts, feelings, and behavioral change

Lifestyle tools to improve quality of living

The process of discerning and listening to your body is a skill. Here is where you practice it.
