Online group classes

"Esther’s positive attitude and generous spirit seem to leap through the screen."
- Sue, online group classes

there's space for you here

All of my teaching holds space for you to adapt the offering to fit what you need or feel safe doing. This and other aspects of my approach stem from a few learnings that have resonated deeply in my experience:
  • movement practice is useful when it "meets you where you are"
  • healing happens through safety and agency
  • we all have the capacity for healing
I offer group movement classes online. Folks with all variation of ability and familiarity are welcome after attending a "Welcome Series" (offered twice yearly). If you have questions about whether my classes might be "right" for you, I encourage you to email me.

Mov/ed Steady

Sundays 8-9:15am
My intention with Mov/ed Steady is to offer a movement practice in which we focus on one action or stretch or breathing practice at a time. The shapes and movements I offer draw from various explorations of the body and how we move that I've encountered while studying dance, yoga, the alexander technique, strength conditioning. My teaching/facilitating approach is trauma informed. 

You're welcome to make of this practice what you need!

Mov/ed Vinyasa

Sundays 9:30-10:45am
Mov/ed Vinyasa is my version of a vinyasa yoga class. I would say my pacing is on the slow side and my style is pretty "flowy." When I'm guiding, I like to keep things moving without rushing :) I incorporate sun salutation (moving up and down from the floor repeatedly) and two-part movement on breath (e.g., arch and round the spine, lift and lower the arms).

Since these are online classes, I don't offer balancing inversions (e.g., handstands), nor shapes that require deep flexibility across multiple joints (no "pretzel" shapes).

Mov/ed Restorative
& Meditation

By appointment
Restorative and meditation practices invites you into a space for stillness, quiet, rest, and/or observation. Email me to request a restorative or meditation practice for yourself or a group. Custom session rates apply.

In restorative, I'll offer supported reclining and seated forms (you can use yoga props or pillows and blankets from around your home). Restorative can be especially useful during times of stress, recovery, and healing --and as a preventative practice! 

In meditation, I offer some gentle movement to ease into a seated or reclining practice of focusing the mind, using breathing, visualization, and mantra.
