NEW FOR 2022!!
Midweek Meditation moves to 90 minute sessions in Cohort 4!
Mindfulness is the moment to moment awareness of our individual experiences without judgement by ourselves or others. Kristine brings her knowledge and experience with trauma and anxiety work to the studio through the practice of mindfulness and meditation. Often, the idea that stress and trauma and emotion have a body component is neglected. Connecting Trapeze Yoga practice with mindfulness meditation is a unique opportunity to explore how the body and mind is connected and how this connection can lead to increased self-awareness and healing.
What should I expect in this experience?
Each week, the space is transformed into a healing and meditative space with calming lighting, relaxing music, and grounding smells. Through the 90 minutes, the group is provided opportunity to learn and practice new and effective tools for everyday use, practice of guided meditation and mindful activities, processing of experiences, and focus on connecting with the body. When anxiety, stress, or other situations overwhelm the senses, disconnection between the mind and body is a common response. Midweek Meditation offers ways to experience connection of mind and body in new ways which may lead to new insights and development of a more gentle and loving relationship with the self.

Yoga is everywhere. It's been a staple for flexibility and strength. The origin is unknown but it's estimated that yogis have been practicing for 5000 years. People have been doing the same asanas and vinyasas since the 1960's when a modern version of yoga was introduced via television and gained more widespread visibility. Add VHS distribution in the 80's and you've now created a pretty good following.
Inversion aids have been around for decades. They were flimsy and unstable but mostly effective if you were willing to give it a try. It wasn't until Lucas Rockwood developed an improved version in 2007 that inversions would get the attention they deserved.
Overall fitness consists of push, pull, and hold. Mat yoga offers plenty of push and hold. Unfortunately it lacks the ability to improve your pull and grip strength which is absolutely fundamental in our daily lives.
Practicing just once or twice a week, the combination of Yoga Trapeze and simple gravity can improve your own pushing, pulling, holding, body twists, back bends, forward bends and more.
