Join us! This gentle movement series focuses on trauma-informed somatic stress management techniques. Each technique is intentionally designed to support you both on & off the mat.Week
The sensations of overwhelm and anxiety can often feel scattered & chaotic. We’ll encourage a sense of calm in the body by connecting to the solid ground beneath us. Pulling from techniques used widely in mental health circles, we’ll focus on our Root Chakra, and practice a variety of “grounding” techniques.
Week Two, Orienting:
Overwhelm often has us ruminating over the past &/or feeling anxious about the future. Drawing from the work of Dr. Stephen Porges’ Polyvagal Theory, we’ll practice using our five senses to reorient ourselves to the present moment.
Week Three, Centering:
Anxiety and overwhelm can bring with them a sense of helplessness. By engaging with our core, our Third Chakra, we’ll engage with the part of our body that supports boundary-building and empowered action.

Did you know there are two halves to your pelvis? Did you know they can move independently of each other? In this class we will work to isolate, open, and strengthen the muscles supporting the hips, along with finding pelvic movement to help connect us to our lower body. We will work through the common hip opening poses encountered in a normal class (and some deeper ones), as well as a variety of standing poses, twists, and forward folds to open the low body. Going beyond the physical, we will talk about how the first and second chakras work in our bodies and how we can help bring them into balance. This class is ideal for any level of practice and we encourage anyone with “tight hips” to attend.
