CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

EMBODIED MOVEMENT:
This mindfulness based movement practice can be described as something along the lines of “somatic exploration”, “movement therapy”, “dance therapy,” “embodiment practice”, “authentic movement”, “mindful movement”, “therapeutic movement”, body love” etc. 
In each 60min class you will begin with a guided, mindfulness based body scan, with a focus on relaxation, sensation, breath, and non-judgemental awareness.. You will then be guided through a series of prompts to help you start exploring movement that feels good to you, as we slowly learn to connect back to movement for pleasure rather than how it looks, or how we think we “should” move.  Each session will end with a short integration, with a few minutes at the end for participants to share their experiences with comments or questions, (optional)
Students may remain anonymous with cameras off should they choose.
There is NO experience required for this class.
This practice is for every body, ability, size, gender etc. 
The only requirement is that you can breathe, and that you have internet connection.
You may want: Space to move around in, that feels safe, and with no interuptions. 
A yoga mat or rug for working on the floor, cushions for sitting or laying down. 
Good speakers of headphones to enjoy the music.

CONDITIONING + MOBILITY:
