mov/ed welcome series

an introduction to build your movement practice

Join the waitlist for the next series

Fall 2022

The Welcome Series is a five-week introduction to my approach to offering a group movement practice. 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, 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.

If you'd like a reminder when registration is open, please sign up for my mailing list. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or schedule a free introductory meeting.

Breath

In this session, we'll explore a few examples of how you can make conscious breathing a practice for whole body ease. I'll teach a few different practices designed to relax or balance your nervous system, create space for questions + discussion about the practices, and suggest ways to integrate conscious breathing into your life, both in yoga classes and in everyday moments. 

Strength

Strength is something we need for play and everyday movements alike. Building or maintaining strength can be straightforward with a little knowledge about what goes into it. In this workshop, I'll teach you 7 foundational strength moves that also show up in yoga. We'll look at why they're not always practiced effectively for building strength and how to change that. 

Stretching

I’ll explain how stretching can be a mobility remedy, a daily reset, and a way to relax. We’ll try each approach and discuss. I’ll invite you to share and/or ask questions about your experience or how to use this modality on your own.

Awareness

Movement practice can help us develop awareness  -- of our bodies, our thoughts, ourselves. In this workshop, we'll review the connection between movement and awareness (with some brain science to boot!) and discuss how different kinds of movement (and meditation) are useful to you in your own experience.

Choice

Sometimes we go to a movement class for encouragement and to be "made" to do what we're after --like working up a sweat or taking enough time with your stretches. And that has its place! There are also times when you come for the space and time set aside and want to do your own thing. I believe it's important to maintain agency over your body in both cases (and others). Making choices in the present moment can be challenging whether we're invited to or not, and in this workshop we'll discuss what it means to make a choice and practice doing so.
