The Welcome Series is a five-week introduction to building a movement habit founded in awareness (of your needs, your body, and more). Below are the topics, one for each week. The hope is that this series will give you a foundation for building or continuing a regular movement practice or exercise habit, whether on your own or in group classes.
The Welcome Series is offered online via zoom twice annually, at the start of the school year and at the start of the calendar year. Attendance is limited to 8 people. Fee is pay what you choose, with a suggested range of $50-$150.
The Welcome Series is a five-week introduction to building a movement habit founded in awareness. "Habit founded in awareness" might seem like an oxymoron, which is probably why many traditions refer to this habit as a practice: movement you do for your well-being (whether physical, mental, or all of it) in an intentional manner and on a regular basis. The regularity and commitment is the habit part. What you do inside that time can be filled with awareness --whether it's of how you do your movement or how you feel in it or another focus.
The Welcome Series is meant to introduce you to five concrete topics (and accompanying actions) that can help you engage with your movement practice/habit/routine with intention. And if you're just starting to build a habit, I hope these tools will make it easier to do just that.
