September 21, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm$20
Online registration closes at 9:00am. We have plenty of space still left in class this morning if you’d like to show up at the door!
Registration for this specific class date will open on Thursday, September 19 @9:00am.
This is because a special Autumnal Equinox BodyMantra workshop is being offered on this day and registrants for that event will have priority access to the morning class. Please check out the details of the workshop and consider joining us for this intentional day of ceremony through movement. Otherwise, registration for the regular morning class will open to the general community on Thursday morning.
BodyMantra blends barefoot movement, stillness, guided meditation, and world music as a practice and pathway leading to greater self-awareness and understanding. BodyMantra guides us to unlock the intricate stories rooted in our bodies, so that we are able to connect to ourselves more consciously. Through movement, participants are encouraged to attune to their bodies, with the intention of cultivating a sharper sense of what the body needs at any given moment. As we develop this relationship to the physical body and its nuances, we inherently develop the same with all aspects of ourselves. This is where the practice really begins; as we listen for the deep, inner voice of the True Self that speaks through the body, we cultivate discernment, equanimity, groundedness, and compassion that can serve us on our life path.
There are very few rules binding this practice, as participants are encouraged to discover their own, authentic movement expression; we provide guides and tools during each experience that are intended to enrich and strengthen the practice. Be prepared to laugh, cry, groove, spin wildly, sit in silence, witness others, meet new friends, and welcome the unexpected. This is the journey of BodyMantra—moving the body to go beyond the body.
- In the spirit of fairness to our large community and the limited size of the studio, we ask that everyone sign up only for classes that you know you are able to attend. This allows us to have a reasonable refund/cancellation policy.
- Online registration will not be available after 9:00am on the day of any given class – please show up in person after that. Check current space availability above before coming. CASH or CHECK ONLY AT THE DOOR.
- Doors to class close promptly at 10:30am to preserve the sacred nature of the practice. No exceptions, even if you’ve registered in advance online.
- Class marked as sold out? Email us with a phone number for texting to be put on a waitlist.
- Need to cancel? Refunds will only be given for cancellations made 48 hours in advance of class start time. Please email us directly to cancel (no calls or texts please!). Exceptions are illness & emergency, though we ask that you notify us no later than 8:00am the morning of any given class in order to receive a refund.
