Finding Flow: Yoga, Dance, Pilates
With Loretta Laurin
June 23 - 28, 2019
Maintain health, fitness, and joy at any age! Enjoy accessible dynamic movement and foundational practices from yoga, dance, and pilates. Lubricate the joints, liberate the spirit, and invite more ease and flow into your life.
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.
