Finding Flow: Yoga, Pilates, Dance
With Loretta Laurin
June 12 - 17, 2022
Maintain health, fitness, and joy at any age! Enjoy accessible dynamic movement and foundational practices from yoga, pilates, and dance. Lubricate the joints, liberate the spirit, and invite more ease and flow into your life.
“Loretta is a gifted facilitator whose knowledge of movement and passion for well-being is illuminated by contagious enthusiasm! Their classes are uplifting and unique with just the right amount of toughness and challenge.” – Megan V., Class Participant
Your body tells a story about your life. Stress patterns held in our physical bodies can cause inertia, stagnancy, inflexibility, and distress. Luckily, when we re-attune to our body’s natural flowing state, the mental and emotional self can follow.
Holistic fitness requires a balance of cardio, strength, flexibility, and adaptability. Fluid movement helps to open and lubricate the joints, keeping them healthy as you age. Find your flow with a balance of deep inner strength, dynamic movement, relaxation, and peace of mind.
“Loretta is a wonderful teacher who skillfully draws on a wide knowledge base. The Pilates course helped me learn to access my body in new ways that support me in many areas of life, including my other body-based practices.” – Daniel M., Class Participant
Topics covered may include:
- Demystify and deepen your understanding of basic yoga postures that make up a Vinyasa (Flow Yoga), activating your spine and opening your heart.
