Shiatsu Foot Massage (30 minutes) - Your feet contain 25% of your body's bones and muscles. Between shoes and flat walking surfaces, that's a lot of movement your joints are not getting. Along with the exercises, foot massage is a great way to start working the stiffness out, increasing circulation of blood and lymph, and, for many, it just feels good. This treatment (done shiatsu-style, with no oil) will begin with an energizing ginger-water scrub, and then, if desired, ending with a light coconut oil finish (or bring your favorite!)
Cost: $35, when purchased with the class (reg. $40.) You'll receive a coupon that you can use when you're ready to schedule.
Part biomechanics, part qigong, these weekly classes are a means of restoring your strength, balance, joint mobility and energy in a gentle but powerful way.
They incorporate breathing, stretching, mindful movements to help facilitate blood and lymph flow, body awareness and alignment.
Whether you are looking to balance an active lifestyle, or gently increase your movement; whether you are a cross-fitter or a recipient of joint replacements; whether you are new to this kind of movement, or would like a weekly review of what you've already learned, you are welcome here!
Class sizes are small and no experience is necessary. So, leave your self-consciousness at the door and come move your body!
All classes are $15 (discount packages available and can be used for any class). Space is limited so RSVP's are requested.
