Intermediate Level 1 with focus on form, flexibility, strength and balance. I keep this class small, with a limit of 12 participants – so I can interact with all of you – see what you’re doing and give corrections/adaptations appropriately. There is a fee for this class and pre-registration is required to hold your space. Drop-ins welcome, as space available.

Make-up class: Tuesday, June 8    If you sign up for the course, and do not miss a class, the “make-up class” is an added bonus for you! Drop-ins are welcome on this day as well, at regular drop-in rate.

Contemplative Practices for Challenging Times (CPCT)

FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH Workshop: Combination of yoga poses (asana) and Qigong movements, along with time for writing and/or art making, affirmations to YOUR Higher Power (whomever or whatever that is to YOU), and the use of mantra (repetition of a sacred sound, positive words or phrases.)

2 pm – 4 pm (PST) • FIRST Sundays:
JANUARY 3  /  MARCH 7  /   MAY 2  /  JUNE 6

Via Zoom Platform
Each First Sunday gathering will reflect a monthly theme and alternates between yoga as the physical activity one month, and Qigong the following month. The asana and Qigong movements are “user-friendly” and can be adapted as needed. The focus of this program is to support your inner world through contemplative and creative practices. All Levels Welcome!

NOTE: If you are unable to attend all of the workshops, no problem! I will still send you a reminder/Zoom invitation at the beginning of each month IF you sign up!
