Dynamic Aging 4 Week Series – September 12 – October 3rd!

The Dynamic Aging Book Club is a 4 Week Series that incorporates discussion along with doing the exercises in the book… all with hands-on guidance from Carla Harless, a Nutritious Movement Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist.

Dynamic Aging, written by Katy Bowman along with 4 of her long-time students, gives practical advise about how to move more & move well as we get older…so that we ca keep moving as we get older!

Learn how to care for your body—feet, ankles, knees, hips, back, shoulders, pelvic floor, brain, and all the rest—in a whole-body, whole-life way. Biomechanist Katy Bowman points out that even when exercise programs are followed diligently, exercisers get joint replacements and take medications at a similar rate as couch potatoes. This is why it’s time to differentiate between exercise and movement. They are not the same thing, and if we ignore the wide variety of possible non-exercise movements, we won’t age as robustly as we can.

Katy’s paradigm-shifting approach helps you create a dynamic and movement-rich life using corrective exercises and their practical application. Come discover how to put the movement back into your life, no matter what your age.

“Turning within is called yoga.” – Gurumayi Chidvilasananda

Definition of harbor:
– a place of security and comfort
– a part of a body of water protected and deep enough to furnish anchorage

The yoga practice offers each one of us the opportunity to anchor our attention into our minds, bodies and hearts. Each pose offers the possibility to journey within because of their endless opportunity for refinement. In this workshop, we will utilize the outer expressions of the poses to explore the deep vastness within. Detailed alignment cues ask us to look deep inside and discover our capacity.

Sam Rice believes it takes consistent and dedicated practice to stay anchored in the heart, and some days are easier than others. In the spirit of shared intention please join Sam Rice for a weekend of detailed alignment to focus the mind, open and strengthen the body, and express the heart fully. Sam is known for her diligent and detailed alignment instructions, that are delivered with great skill, passion, and humor, offering students the opportunity to find renewed depth in practice.
