INTRO TO YOGA

Introduction to Yoga, Movement & Self-Awareness

with Nate & Alana

If you or our child is attending the GAPS Academic programs at Meadow Ridge & Timber Ridge Schools, they may encounter Alana and Nate.

We are functioning like summer school substitutes, filling in gaps in the GAPS academic program. :)

General content description:

Come as you are, play, laugh, experiment and even rest.

Yoga aims to harmonize our minds and bodies with our spirit. With these sessions we explore small ways to find stability, unlock your health, observe and listen to how energy, feelings and moods moves throughout your body. Have you ever had an experience that made you feel happy, sad, excited, or mad, for an entire day? An entire week?? An entire year??? Our minds play a big role in creating the world we experience each day.

     We’ll start with a check-in and gear the day's practices to caring for what’s alive in our bodies. In this class you will learn simple techniques to calm your nervous system, check in with yourself and explore what you need to feel more at peace moving through the ups and downs of life.

It is his passion to share these practices with fellow seekers.
