Awareness Through Movement®
"Lie on your back... Close your eyes... Notice the areas of your body that are in contact with the floor..."
In class, you are verbally directed through a series of small, gentle movements. Questions about your sensory experience help guide your attention through small, gentle movements to increase your awareness of how your body responds to each movement, so you can discover and clarify connections within yourself. Students often leave feeling more grounded and with more freedom in how they move.
Classes are conducted in a non-competitive, non-judgmental way, with everyone going at their own pace. Slowing down is always encouraged, because the slower you are moving, and the more time you give yourself to feel what is happening, the more accurate your movements and attention can become.
Weekly on Mondays, 6:00-7:00 pm, May-July and September-November at Two Dog Yoga. Classes are taught in month-long themed series. Register for a series in advance, or drop in when you can; $55 for 4 classes or $17 for drop in. Mats are provided. All are welcome, with no experience necessary. Please wear warm, comfortable clothing and bring your sense of curiosity. Free parking is available around the neighborhood, and you may park in the auto shop lot across the street after 5 pm.
