    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.

    Chakras are vital energy pathways that connect us to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth, to all aspects of ourselves and to the cosmic pulse of Creation. Chakra Rhythms is a moving meditation practice that invokes, awakens and revitalizes our 7 major Chakra centers through a fusion of free flowing movement and spontaneous expression of the physical body. By surrendering to the music and moving from the inside out, we are able to free our natural energy flows and experience how each Chakra makes us feel. The possibility and potential within each Chakra center is waiting to be revealed and released! No dance experience is needed. It is an opportunity to simply Be. Be with yourself in motion to music within community, each having our own personal inner experience and embracing our own healing process.

    The intent is to offer a fun, safe and sacred space for all to explore, feel and express fully how their body wants to move and to discover a new way to feel yourself existing in your own body. When we open the flow of our physical being, all other pathways open and all we seek shall be revealed! At the conclusion of Chakra Rhythms we feel an enlightened awareness of our bodies, minds and spirits as well as a connection to our chakra system as a whole. Dress to move and bring a mat or blanket. 

    We rarely hear the inward music but we are dancing to it nonetheless- Rumi

    Meditation is the practice and process of paying attention and focusing your awareness. Whether you are seeking greater focus, less stress and more peace of mind, or a deeper appreciation of the beauty and richness of life, the simple practice of sitting down and turning your attention inward can do wonders! This is a beginning class where different forms of meditation are introduced and practiced in a seated position. Bring a yoga mat or rug if you would like to do this lying down.

    From the beginning of time, sound has been one of the most powerful healers. When sound waves enter and pass through our body, it results in vibrational changes. Tuning Fork Therapy uses sound and vibration to assist your physical body's organs, tissues, glands, cells, etc to reach their optimal vibrational frequency (OVF) thus allowing them to self heal. It is also helpful for reducing stress, tension, and pain management. Tuning fork therapy can also be used for deepening a spiritual connection, increasing mental clarity/focus and balancing the mind, body, and spirit. 

    Edgar Casey stated that sound (vibration) would be the medicine of the future. Tuning fork therapy draws upon the science of sound and ancient practices to create a harmonic holistic approach to health and well being.

    "There are places in the heart and soul only sound can touch."

    Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of inducing complete physical, mental, and emotional relaxation. With regular practice, Yoga Nidra has been found to reduce stress, tension, anxiety and depression. Additionally, Yoga Nidra is beneficial for insomnia, aids in calming symptoms of chronic pain, and has been shown to help those with PTSD or other psychological wounds. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 4 hours or sleep! Learn this practice of self-inquiry. Restore your energy and relax into the real you. Expect to spend the majority of this class reclined on your yoga mat on the floor. (Please talk with Keri before class begins if you need to be seated.)

    Class is open to all. No experience necessary.

    Learn the simple art of making this tangy and nutritious dairy drink. Also, how to make Quark, a fresh soft artisan cheese. So tasty and healthy! You will receive everything you need to start making Kefir for your next breakfast. Supplies include a jar with fresh kefir, Kefir grains and instructions.

    Did you Know?


    Quark is an essential part of the Budwig protocol. Dr Johanna Budwig (1908 - 2003) was a biochemist who developed a natural cure for cancer by combining the sulfur rich amino acids found in quark cheese with the omega-3 acids in flaxseed oil in a 2:1 ratio. This Budwig mixture is garnished with ground flax seeds, fresh fruit and nuts. The Budwig protocol is a natural whole food diet and holistic lifestyle approach to improve cancer, heart disease and arthritis. Dr Budwig was nominated six times for the Nobel Prize in medicine and has written 12 books.

    Facilitator Michael Prindle


    Are you interested in learning more about Qigong before signing up to take classes? Come listen to Michael explain more about the benefits of Qigong. He will also demonstrate a few of the postures/movements and answer any questions/concerns that you may have. 

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion. Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation. It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance. The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.

    Feel free to bring a sack lunch.  Advanced registration is appreciated.  Walk-ins are welcome

    Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.

    Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening.  Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.

    Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion.  Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation.  It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance.  The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis.  It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue.  Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.  

    Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome.  Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs.  Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine.  Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.  

    Advance registration ends two days before each class.

    Chakras are vital energy pathways that connect us to the cycles and rhythms of the Earth, to all aspects of ourselves and to the cosmic pulse of Creation. Chakra Rhythms is a moving meditation practice that invokes, awakens and revitalizes our 7 major Chakra centers through a fusion of free flowing movement and spontaneous expression of the physical body. By surrendering to the music and moving from the inside out, we are able to free our natural energy flows and experience how each Chakra makes us feel. The possibility and potential within each Chakra center is waiting to be revealed and released! No dance experience is needed. It is an opportunity to simply Be. Be with yourself in motion to music within community, each having our own personal inner experience and embracing our own healing process.

    The intent is to offer a fun, safe and sacred space for all to explore, feel and express fully how their body wants to move and to discover a new way to feel yourself existing in your own body. When we open the flow of our physical being, all other pathways open and all we seek shall be revealed! At the conclusion of Chakra Rhythms we feel an enlightened awareness of our bodies, minds and spirits as well as a connection to our chakra system as a whole. Dress to move and bring a mat or blanket. 

    We rarely hear the inward music but we are dancing to it nonetheless- Rumi
