Summer Slow Flow Yoga w/ Shelly Drennan
Dates: Sunday July 23 & July 30, 12:30-1:45 pm
Thursday July 28th, 4:00-5:15 pm

Slow Flow is the practice of basic poses that are done in sequence and synchronized with the breath. These sequences are done slowly enough to allow for mindfulness of what is going on with the breath and body. The continual movement develops muscle strength and flexibility. Shelly provides a supportive setting for yoga practice. All levels are welcome. If you are new to yoga and in reasonably good condition, the class will be fine for you. We’ll coordinate movement with breath as we transition through a moderately paced sequence (vinyasa) of asanas (yoga postures). $15 @ class

Mindful Yoga: Symptom Management Workshop
       with Kimberly and Jim Carson

Tuesday, June 14th at 7-8:30 pm  FREE!

Kimberly and Jim Carson are pioneers in the science of combining the yoga tradition with medicine. Working with Duke University and Oregon Health and Science University, the couple have not only produced the primary research on the efficacy of the use of a yogic practice in medical applications, but have developed, taught, and trained others in an evidence-based yoga program which allows practitioners to meet the challenges of chronic illness, chronic pain,  cancer, and aging.  The Carsons call their program, Mindful Yoga.  With the meditation, breath work, and  gentle strengthening and stretch of a deeper traditional yogic practice, practitioners of Mindful Yoga learn to manage the symptoms of persistent pain, fatigue, and the emotional distress of illness.
            Tuesday, June 14,  the Carsons will be giving an informative and experiential taste of Mindful Yoga a 7:00-8:30 PM. This event is   FREE   to the public.  (Wear comfortable loose clothing.)
            Participants will have the opportunity to experience for themselves the mindfulness-based meditation and yogic practices taught by the Carsons . Integrated with the experiential learning, the Carsons will be sharing the wealth of information they have gathered from their years of research and work with Duke University’s Medical Center (addressing the needs of cancer, chronic pain, and seniors) and at OHSU where Jim Carson, Ph.D,  maintains a clinical practice focused on meeting  the needs of those who experience persistent pain.

Learn the skill of tuning your body like a musician tuning a precious instrument. This series offers the gem-like experience that will enrich your life with strength, grace and beauty. There is more power and energy than you realize within physical body. These classes will help you to tap into that power. 
“Movement is life, but there is a big difference between a basic physical workout and moving in harmony with your heart and soul,” says Katerina. Her teachings are steeped in contemplative awareness of nature, and wonder at the universe and its forces of creation. Her work dictates a luminous aspiration that invites the students’ attention inwards upon what is mysterious and most important in life.
Katerina has been teaching for over two decades and has been featured on the cover of Yoga International Magazine. Her deep study of classical yogic philosophy impelled her to find a way to make contemporary yoga relevant to the modern world. With a rare mastery to reach people of all ages and abilities, she has touched the hearts of many in a way few will ever forget. 

The Mystery of Water
Taught by: Dr. Nicholas Corrin, OMD
Date: June 25, 2016
Time: 2:00 – 5:00 pm
Cost: $60
Registration: or (360) 370-7059
Location: XYZ Movement Arts, 689 Airport Center Road
Water is the sine qua non of life. Without water, life ceases. God would have been unable to create the world without it: Genesis says water was there prior to Creation itself. Water is the ultimate mystery, the essence of who we are. When it comes to health, nothing is more vital. All our tissues are fed and bathed by biological waterways. Nerve bodies may transmit electrical charges, yet they are fundamentally hydraulic systems, bodies of water run by pumps. We must keep these pumps primed. Otherwise, as we age, toxins stack up and block our circuits. This will inevitably result in aging, sickness or poor quality of life.
We emerged from the oceans not just once but twice. New discoveries in paleo-ontology support the theory that pre-hominids spent millions of years as ocean waders, thus sharing a developmental relationship with cetaceans. This has profound implications for understanding our physiology, our nutritional needs, our capacity for memory and its ultimate source in the water molecule.
Please note that the material presented in this workshop will be experiential and inspirational. Participants will be guided  to move their bodies in fluid, healing ways.
No prior experience is required.
