Energy Healing with Anna
What is Energy Healing?
Energy Healing begins with the premise that dis-ease in the body shows up first in our energy field. Through working with the body’s energetic system, areas of stuck physical and emotional tension can be released and healed.
On a physical level it means lying down for an hour and receiving light touch. On an energetic level it means deepening into your body, allowing energy (and feelings) to move through, and being present with yourself in the moment.
There are multiple times available every other Tuesday. Please call 802-626-4202 and leave a message, or email Anna directly at firstname.lastname@example.org You can also visit her website at: https://www.sweetfirehealing.com/overview/energy-healing
Pilates with Kristine
Kristine’s teaching style is grounded in classical Pilates, a system of more than 500 exercises developed by Mr. Joseph Pilates to bring the body back into balance. She also brings her knowledge of anatomy, functional movement, development movement and ideokinesis to each session. Through hands-on guidance Kristine creatively adapts to the diverse needs and learning styles of her clients to help each person “constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limit of our ability” (Joseph Pilates, Return to Life through Contrology). The goal is to find better posture, a reconnection of your limbs into your body, a strong supple spine, improved breath capacity, restored vitality, an improved mind and an elevated spirit. You will leave each session feeling better than when you came in.
Ecstatic Dance NEK
We invite you to join a free from dance experience, moving your body in a safe and sacred space. Open to ALL, no previous dance/movement experience necessary. If you are human, you are the perfect fit. A different eclectic playlist is offered each week with music in a “wave”format, starting slow, building to a peak, and returning to stillness. Our space is safe and non-judgmental, a place for self-expression, freeing your mind and body, and connecting with yourself and those around you.
MELT stands for Myofascial Energetic Lengthening Technique. It’s a self-treatment system designed to stimulate the amazing healing power of the body’s connective tissue. MELT helps to relieve aches and stiffness and to improve performance, and it’s ideal for people having chronic pain anywhere in the body including the lower back, hips, neck & shoulders.
Much of the chronic pain that we all suffer is not muscular but, rather, it is caused by dehydrated connective tissue called fascia. MELT helps restore the fascia’s ability to support, stabilize and protect muscles, and to respond to repetitive movement. It’s great before and after workouts for weightlifting, running, golf, tennis as well as other sports and athletic activities. It also pairs well with Yoga.
Yoga Healing with Tom
Do you struggle with back pain, or other pain that is affecting your daily activity? Have you been looking for a way to kick start an exercise regimen, but fearful that you don’t have the flexibility or strength to begin? This class may be the one that you’ve been looking for. Yoga Healing is especially suited for older and/or non “yoga bodies”. Tom’s experience as a Reiki master, massage therapist, yoga instructor and former paramedic have shaped his method for guiding students through this class. He provides a combination of introspective Classic Hatha and Tantra asanas, active correction of postures, and modification of postures as needed to accommodate abnormal pathology. His knowledge of anatomy and massage training lends itself to a more hands on approach than normally taught. His interest as a Yoga instructor is to help others become more introspective, maintain or improve flexibility, minimize pain, and to foster students’ understanding of the marvel of their own bodies. Please wear clothes that you can easily move in. You will not need shoes, but sneakers are fine if you prefer to wear them. You can also bring your own mat, or yoga props, but know that we do have them available for your convenience.
