I'm excited to share that I will be participating in the Moving Day DC event to support the Parkinson's Foundation, raising funds for Parkinson's research aimed at improving care for those with Parkinson's and advancing towards a cure. The day of the event I will be leading a Parkinson's friendly yoga practice segment for anyone attending. I have also joined a local team supporting the event: Rock Steady Boxing NOVA. Rock Steady Boxing NOVA offers classes to people with Parkinson's to improve quality of life through a non-contact boxing-based fitness curriculum.

SUNDAY MAY 23
Yoga Nidra and the Art of Conscious Relaxation
4:30-5:30 pm at Body Grace studio in Vienna
Fee: $20 pre-registered: $25 drop-in
Yoga Nidra is an ancient practice that takes people into a state of deep relaxation through a guided meditative process and conscious visualization. Also known as yogic sleep, the practice gives rest to the mind, body and senses by drawing the practitioner into a state of conscious awareness—a brain state between full wakefulness and full sleep. This practice has been linked with reducing stress, tension and pain; improving circulation and immune functioning; lowering blood pressure and inflammation; and stabilizing mood. Yoga Nidra is generally practiced while lying down or in a seated position. For your comfort, please bring a pillow and wear comfortable clothing and arrive 15 minutes before class start. Mats and blankets are available at the studio or feel free to bring your own. Please RSVP to reserve a spot with Jan at email@example.com
REMINDER: MONDAY EVENINGS 6:45pm-8pm, Body Grace Fitness and Yoga
Yoga for "Core" and Connection
A truly stable core allows the body to respond naturally, without bracing and excessive tension, despite changes in how fast you are going, how much weight you are carrying, or if you are changing direction. This unique class is for people seeking to strengthen and balance their internal structure—“core” stability—through improved movement. The class also seeks to bring balance to how our right and left sides respond to the world in movement through some laterality instruction. Some therapeutic practices are used in class towards these goals--class includes a blend of mindful movement, breathing exercises, yoga poses and meditation to help practitioners experience how a supportive and responsive “core” and balanced body emerges and when you are moving and breathing well. Class suitable for all levels.
