    Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from Qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Tai Chi involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. This 8-week course has both physical and mental benefits. If done regularly, it improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Many older people find that it boosts their energy, stamina, agility, sharpens their reflexes, and gives an overall sense of well-being.

    It can be hard to find the motivation to get up and go outside even though we know how beneficial it is. Keeping active and getting fresh air is fantastic for our mental and physical health. Join this wonderful hiking group! It will give you that needed inspiration to get outside, stay active and take in nature, all while being able to connect with others and make new friends.

    This group is led by various Womanspace staff members. It moves around to different, beautiful hiking trails in our region…some paved, some not. You do the distance you want to do. After registering, you will be sent an email two days before each hike letting you know what location we will be at and where to meet.

    This group is free and accessible to all, although donations are always accepted!

    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.  Suggested equipment: comfortable attire, yoga mat, yoga block, strap, blanket/pillow.

    No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! 

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do — you won’t want to stop.

    Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, a 5 gallon bucket to set ball on and 5A basic drum sticks. Purchase a set from Womanspace for $20 (limited supply)

    Instructor: Debby Gaines

    Class size is limited and face masks are required.

    Prerequisite: Completion of Reiki I & II. Please contact Debby with any questions. In Usui Reiki, the master classes are divided up so that Reiki practitioners may become a Reiki Master without being a Reiki teacher. (Reiki 3A is the Master class and Reiki 3B is the Reiki Master Teacher Class.) In Reiki 3A, you will learn two more Reiki symbols, ways to do a "psychic surgery," how to do a spirit release, as well as how to clear space energetically. When students make a commitment to complete this level, they often experience opportunities for healing and improving their life, as well as the lives around them. To help with this process, you will learn how to do a Reiki meditation to improve your own life, how to create crystal grids for healing, and intentions and more. 

    If you have taken the Reiki 3A class with this instructor before and want to take  to it again as a refresher course, registration is just $50.

    Please wear comfortable, loose fitting clothing, with no jewelry or perfumes.

    Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from Qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. Tai Chi involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing. This 8-week course has both physical and mental benefits. If done regularly, it improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance, and coordination. Many older people find that it boosts their energy, stamina, agility, sharpens their reflexes, and gives an overall sense of well-being.

    NEW! Mondays, August 2, 9, 16, 23, 30

    Instructor:  Beth Campisi

    Sign up for this 5 week session or individual sessions!

    No drumming experience needed. All levels welcome…can even be done sitting down! 

    Cardio Drumming combines movement with the beat and rhythm of drums for a fun, high energy workout. It brings together drumsticks, an exercise ball, an exercise ball stand and rhythmic moves to create one of the most fun workouts you’ll ever do — you won’t want to stop.

    Cardio drumming will raise your heart rate to help burn those calories, improve your coordination and ability to focus, and help strengthen many muscle groups, including your core. Studies have shown that when people find workouts they enjoy and have fun with, they’re more likely to stick with their routine.

    Equipment needed: 65 cm exercise ball, a 5 gallon bucket to set ball on and 5A basic drum sticks. Purchase a set from Womanspace for $20 (limited supply)

    Please register at least two days prior to the session you would like to attend.

    NOTE:  This class is being held in the Anjali Pavilion at Womanspace (NOT AT INSPIRED YOGA STUDIO!)

    Class size limited. Social distancing & face masks are required.

    Two left feet? Love Zoomba but need something low impact? No problem! In this 4-week course, Freya will lead you through dance & yoga based stretches to increase flexibility, balance, and strength.  Then she will get your heart rate up through low impact drills using fusion belly dance moves that anyone can do regardless of your fitness level or dance experience. These combinations are a fun cardio workout that will strengthen muscles, increase joint stability, and boost your cardio fitness.  And without realizing it, you’ll learn some sassy dance moves too! 

    Suggested equipment: yoga mat, close-fitting attire that allows full range of motion (for you and the instructor to see your body positions), a scarf or shawl to tie around your hips (to see your hip movements in the mirror), smooth-soled ballet shoes or socks only in the studio.

    Register by: 8/02 or 2 days before a single session.
