    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.

Specific information about each chakra is covered: it's color, location, health issues, purpose and how to open and balance it to live a loving, peaceful more fulfilling life. This class will utilize the tools and build upon the insights learned in the Lower Chakra class, therefore the prerequisite class Opening the Lower Chakras is Required. Book and workbook required.

    Self-portraiture is a painting tradition that is as old as painting itself! If you’ve never painted a self-portrait before, here’s your chance to create one in a supportive and creative environment. In this class we’ll learn tricks of the trade like skull structure, proportions, value, and color-mixing. Portraits will be painted from a mirror, so bring a prepared canvas or panel and get ready to express yourself! Some paint, paper, and brushes will be provided, but bring your own if you have them!

    All levels. Yoga Nidra means Yogic sleep; a state of conscious deep sleep where we learn to relax consciously. This class is deep relaxation with an inner state of awareness, which has been found to reduce stress, tension and anxiety. It is beneficial for insomnia and to calm symptoms of chronic pain, headaches, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease, autoimmune disease and has been shown to help those in recovery from addiction. Yoga Nidra also helps calm and clear the mind and has potential to provide emotional healing--restoring our body senses and mind to their natural functions. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to four hours of sleep.

    Facilitator: Elaine Hirschenberger

    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.

    Note: In this session of the Oral History of Womanspace series, Elaine will address the history of our commitment to environmental stewardship. It will be presented during our December meeting of EarthMatters Group.

    Womanspace is a unique creation -- and a true "Rockford Original." In the early 1970s, the "little dream that could" began to grow into Womanspace, the ongoing, self-creating, life-affirming community that exists today. Whether you are a brand-new member or one who has been around here for decades, we invite you to come and revisit the story of Womanspace as our Co-founder shares photos, stories, trends and challenges that have created and continue to create this vibrant community.

    We recognize that this story is important AND that it is far more than just one woman's perspective -- the big story is contained in many individual stories. More attendance = more perspectives = a more complete picture!

    This series will be repeated as an early evening offering beginning in January. So, if you are unable to come during the day, please look for the January-April evening dates.

    Piet Mondrian 1872-1944 Dutch Abstraction

    Piet Mondrian, an artist, theorist and writer, is best known for his growth to purity of abstraction (Neo-Plasticism), which evolved from a spiritual order he saw underlying the visual world. He was fascinated with rhythm and duration, and music was a source of inspiration for him, especially jazz. His “Broadway Boogie-Woogie” of 1942-43 is a fine example of this fascination and inspiration. In his later art works he used variations of line and shapes in three primary colors to express his ideas. This class will present his art and ideas.

    The name, JOURNEY TO INNER FREEDOM, reflects the goal of writing from the quiet center: to uncover within ourselves an inner freedom, one we did not know we possess. As we discover the hidden resources deep within us, we also find ways to free ourselves of the chains of past destructive behaviors and to learn from the "mistakes" of life. We begin to see that all the material of our life is a rich, exciting learning ground and fertile soil for new, creative works. As this occurs, we find ourselves more and more inwardly free and truly ourselves. By writing from the quiet center, we are able to follow our inner guidance and do the deep inner work our lives require. This workshop will use the journal method of Ira Progroff described in his book, At a Journal Workshop. Bring a sack lunch on Saturday!
