Settling in Unsettled Times: Yoga Nidra Series

Settling in Unsettled Times: Yoga Nidra Series

with Kim Schaefer
Wednesdays at 6pm
GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF RELEASE & RENEWAL

We are living in a time of collective uncertainty and ongoing stress. The key to settling in unsettled times lies in releasing tension and nourishing yourself with deep restoration.

iRest Yoga Nidra meditation is the compass pointing you toward this felt sense of serenity and comfort that can easily be veiled. The "nidra" of Yoga Nidra means sleep or changing states of consciousness. It refers to your capacity to abide knowingly as an unchanging and wakeful presence in the midst of the changing circumstances of life.

This six-week in-person & virtual series offers you the opportunity to recover with expressive movement to shake away the stress of the day, journaling prompts to support release, and guided meditation to leave you feeling grounded and restored.

"When practiced regularly - little and often - iRest enables you to meet each moment of your life with unshakable peace and well-being, no matter how challenging or difficult your situation." - iRest Institute

Get More From Your Core

Get More From Your Core

with Mark Uridel
Sunday at 10am
IS IT TIME TO DITCH CRUNCHES?

Your "core" is a system of interconnected muscles that contribute to hundreds of bodily movements a day. A strong core is critical for good posture, delivering power during workouts, and can prevent injuries to the limbs and back.

In this workshop, Physical Therapist Dr. Mark Uridel will give you an in-depth exploration of the core musculature. Participants will leave with practical exercises that will improve the function and activation of the core.

Sunday, November 7 10am-12pm in the Big Room at 360

Capacity: 12

PRICE: $35 members $45 non-members

10% VIP member discount *We recommend signing up with a friend and in advance

Self-Defense for Women Workshop

Self-Defense for Women Workshop

with Robert Reed
Saturday at 10am
LEARN VALUABLE, LIFE-SAVING SKILLS

Empower yourself by learning skills to help defend against an assault. Kajukenbo is a combination of five different martial arts. It is the blending of the "most lethal" aspects of karate, judo, jiu jitsu, Chinese kenpo, and kung fu.

In this one-day workshop participants will learn the first kajukenbo and kung fu self-defense techniques. Though heart rates will be raised and muscles will be sore, this is not a gym workout. Students are in the class to learn actual self-defense techniques that could help one day save their life.

The confidence you will gain from this course alone is worth the price of admission. You can expect partner work and close personal contact to simulate real-life situations, and because of this masks are required. All participants are responsible and supported in setting their own limits and comfort level. 

Daughters should be at least 10 years old and be mature enough to handle adult subject matter or verbiage. Recommended attire: workout clothes. 

Saturday, November 20 10am-12pm in the Multisport Room downtown
