Jennifer is a special ed teacher at Johnson Elementary. She will be amazing with your kids, but please know that if your child disrupts the class, you may be asked to stay and help.
Mats and props will be provided. Your child should wear clothes he/she feels comfortable moving in.
If your child is comfortable on their own and responsible enough to follow directions, you are welcome to leave during the class. There is a separate sitting area in the studio and a lobby in the building where you are welcome to wait.
For the time being we currently require masks in the studio. Masks are highly encouraged during class, but not required while practicing on your mat.

Advanced Tai Chi 10-Week Series
Advanced Series (Beginner series will start again in the Fall)
June 9-August 11
$120 / 10-week series
This class is open to anyone but it does build upon the routine learned in the Beginner's Tai Chi class offered previously. Successful completion of the beginner's form is advised but not a requirement. Explore some new, challenging tai chi moves that will expand your competence and confidence. Build upon the basics you already know or learned in beginner's class to extend the time of your "meditation in motion".
Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese tradition that today is practiced as a graceful form of exercise. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner. Tai Chi can improve your balance, flexibility and may assist you to manage a chronic condition. You’ll build confidence, be inspired, and have fun. The Tai Chi you’ll learn can be performed standing or seated.
Yoga 101: Beginner / Foundational Series
Learn the basics of traditional yoga postures (asana) including how to make them work for your body, breathing (prana), and yoga philosophy while strengthening your body and mind. Appropriate for beginners and experienced practitioners.
20 min discussion (beginning or end of class)
5-7 min breathing/centering
30-35 min movement & yoga pose basics
15-20 min slower stretches and relax
This class is for you if:
1. You’ve ever wondered what yoga was or wanted to try it
2. You have ever felt intimidated by a group yoga class and would feel comfortable starting at home
3. You have done yoga but want to learn more about it’s origins and history
4. You’ve want more healthy movement in your life, but not to the level of the crazy “yoga” contortionists online (that’s not what yoga is about, btw).
5. You want to learn how to make yoga movement work for your body.
