Description:
Senior Sacred Movement, with Karen Cryer is a weekly drop-in class
focusing on postural alignment, balance, flexibility, increased range of motion, and strengthening, designed for those of us, over 55.

Given there's no aging manual, we must learn to seek out teachers who will light our paths, share their journey, and educate us on how and why we must get better at our own
self-care.

If you're looking to enhance your overall wellbeing, Mind, Body, Spirit, with a group of your peers, and are open to tweaking your regular routine, this is just the class for you. It's not too hard, not too soft, as the 3 Bears would say, it's just right! Not to worry, Just Try It.

Through the practices of Taoist Qigong, gentle Hatha yoga, mindfulness meditation, and various healing practices and self-care, Karen teaches students how to use their body to connect, open their hearts, create a rejuvenating spaciousness, improve concentration, and promote overall well-being.

These gentle exercise practices along with mindful awareness promote healing, mobility, strength, and connection to your body for increased vitality.

This course provides specific takeaway techniques that students can do at home to relieve stress and become more grounded in daily life.

Some of the practices will include:

- Taoist Qigong
- Gentle Hatha yoga
- Neuromuscular self-care
- Understanding and working with the Five Elements
- Using the body scan meditation for greater awareness
- Seated Insight meditations

Other Class Notes:

The overall flow of this class engages awareness of the body in movement and in rest, bringing energy and release to areas of tightness or injury.

Though this is a healing practice, we are not guaranteeing specific individual results. This is a movement practice, please check with your physician if you have health concerns before participation.
