MOVE IN BALANCE - Yoga Somatics
With Joanne Barrett
Saturday: September 21, 2019; 1:00 - 3:00PM, Cost $35


Move in Balance is a workshop which will explore the integration of a variety of disciplines: yoga, basic movement improvisation and Somatic exercises that emphasize learning from within and aim to weave together Body-Mind and Spirit.

We will create "space" in our joints, paying attention to the architecture of the body to "glide" into balance. This workshop is playful, and available for all levels of practitioners. Wear comfortable clothing, long sleeves and pants that cover the knees. Ages 15 and up!!
