Shakti is a powerful creative force in life that makes everything possible. It's in you, it's in me, it creates celebration and challenge, it is day and it is night. The path of the yogi or yogini is to listen and open to Shakti.... that which is most alive and awake in every moment. When we can align with the momentum of Shakti, movement in our bodies and lives comes with ease..much like floating downstream on a river. Refine your practice and build endurance while strengthening your inner understanding of Shakti. Classes include intermediate backbends, forward bends, twists, standing poses, balancing poses as well as handstand prep. New to Still Waters Yoga?

Gentle Strength Chair Yoga: Regardless of age, strength, or flexibility, this class invites your body to respond to challenges on its own terms. Encouraging balance, strength, and freedom of movement, through the use of props, including the CHAIR, you’ll feel energized again!
Complimenting the physical practice, Kathie will also introduce the class to the 5 Elements (wood, fire, earth, metal, water) of Chinese Medicine. Understanding these elements and how they interact with our bodies, minds, and emotions creates optimal health and well-being. Each element aligns with a season.
You will learn how to use yoga, breathing, physical exercises, meditation and visualization.
For more information on the 5 Elements, Kathie suggests the following book: Wood Becomes Water: Chinese Medicine in Everyday Life, by Gail Reichstein
