Current Online Classes

 

Music, Movement, and Mindfulness

Tuesdays 2-3pm via Zoom

Given the opportunity, people of all abilities can learn to develop greater body awareness, strength, physical and mental flexibility, confidence, self-regulation, and self-expression through yoga practice. The benefits of yoga are well documented. The practice inherently targets visual-spatial, gross motor, language, social-emotional, and executive function skills.


The intention of the class is for each individual to align with the best version of themselves by becoming stronger, more balanced, more flexible, and to feel more calm and relaxed. Each session is designed to accommodate a variety of learning styles through engaging, joyful, and experience based activities including:  interactive games, dancing, mindful movement, storytelling, singing, guided meditation, and breathing techniques.

All abilities welcome! DDD funding accepted! Email for details!
