Somatic Movement Group
Wednesdays, 12 – 1:15pm at Toes Yoga
Fee: $20 (cash or check)
This class is for anyone who would like to be more in touch with or learn more about: their body; themselves; their relationships; or the connection between their body-mind and expression.
Class will include: anatomy of the body system, guided somatization, partner work, hands-on and somatic movement explorations.
Time will be allowed to apply the explored material for ease and efficient movement to asana for asana practitioners, to dance for dancers and to everyday activities.
Currently we are embodying the Skeletal System. Read about the difference between embodying anatomy versus studying anatomy by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen founder of Body-Mind Centering®, watch how to work with the layers of bone with Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
Please note that this group is by invitation only. Please if you are interested in attending.
Guided Mindfulness Meditation
Thursdays, 5:45 – 6:15pm at Center for Mindful Living
Fee: free for members, $5 non-members
This class will focus on developing the skill of paying attention to our inner and outer experiences with acceptance, patience, and compassion. By intentionally practicing mindfulness, deliberately paying more careful moment-to-moment attention, we can live more fully and less on ‘automatic pilot,’ thus, being more present for our own lives. This class is appropriate for new as well as experienced meditators.
Chattanooga Insight Group
Thursdays, 6:30 – 7:45pm at Center for Mindful Living
Chattanooga Insight is dedicated to the teaching and practice of meditation and mindfulness in the Insight/Vipassana tradition. Informed by Buddhism and other contemplative traditions, we will explore themes such as mindfulness, insight, daily life practice and the transformative power of presence.
We generally start with a 30 minute meditation, followed by a talk or sharing of an aspect of the teachings and practice, and ending with some time for Q&A/discussion. Occasionally, some evenings may also emphasize silent practice, guided meditations or reflections, small group interactions or other activities, depending on who is facilitating the evening.
