Moving Meditation Open Floor Cycle Yoga 101
This 3-week series is designed as an introduction to the mindful movement, conscious dance practice of Open Floor International. The benefits of an Open Floor practice include building strength/coordination/mobility, lifting mood, reducing anxiety/stress, regulating the nervous system, encouraging connection to self/others/spirit, increasing self-awareness, and building resiliency. People who have a regular embodiment practice approach life with more ease, creativity, and flexibility. Be one of those people!
What to Expect: You’ll be introduced to the principles of Open Floor International through instruction and experiential practice. We will begin each session by arriving well, opening awareness, using meditation and movement exercises to explore a Core Movement Resource theme, settling, and closing well with sharing. Music supports our practice. You will spend time sitting, standing, dancing, talking, breathing, lying, and modifying as needed. Open Floor practice is for everybody.
