HEALING MEDITATION

September 20 - October 25 | 6 wks | Sun @ 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Member $108 | Non-Member $156

Instructor: Del Leon
If you’re looking to become your best self, then this course is for you. Meditation will teach you how to rewire your brain to be more ageless, healthy, and happy! If you have chronic pain, health issues, stress, and anxiety, or just don’t love who you see in the mirror, then you owe it to yourself to try Healing Meditation.

 

Another reason to meditate is to alleviate stress. Stress burrows deep into your mind and body, and many studies equate this with contributing to disease. Stress has been shown to contribute to the development of the 4 Major Diseases; Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Cancer, and Diabetes. A lot of us have little or no ability to rest, digest, and rejuvenate. Meditation will help us do this! 

 

Are you ready to create health and harmony with your unconscious inner programming by re-wiring your thoughts and behaviors? It’s been scientifically proven that you can. It’s called The Placebo Effect. And you can activate your own Placebo Effect by re-wiring thoughts and reactions you’ve had in the past – on a subconscious level, where all the power lies waiting for you.

 

In This Healing Meditation course you will be: 

  • Guided through meditation experiences to connect to your subconscious mind 
  • Taught simple physical movements (mudras/postures)
  • Able to identify and change deep-seated patterns of self-sabotage
  • Given easy ways to  re-wire your unconscious programming and “self-sabotaging beliefs.”

The exercises focus on building total-body strength with an emphasis on improving balance, stability, and flexibility. Equipment needed – Chair, hand weights, resistance band. Instructor: Cindi Massengale

SENIOR STABILITY & BALANCE

Aug 9 - Sept 13 | Sun @ 11:30 AM -12:10 PM
Member $108 | Non-Member $128

As we age, our vision worsens and so does our confidence in our ability to maneuver without a fall. This class Stability and Balance will not only strengthen your bones and your balance as these exercises are designed to work with the brain as well. The focus is on creating fall prevention strategies that work. The class is 40 minutes and it is necessary to be able to hold a standing position to get the most benefit. Chairs can provide support.

 

Exercises are done to music but are not dance steps.  This class is every Sunday starting Aug 9 for 6 weeks. At the end of six weeks, you will notice a significant change to your stability and balance.
