Learn to have a youthful spine and effortless posture for life! In this workshop, you will experience the design and function of the spine and how to care for it on a daily basis. This will deepen your understanding for better results in your exercise routines and daily awareness. You’ll learn self massage techniques to release tension, relax and align the spine prior to more demanding conditioning exercises.

We’ll combine the Franklin Method and classic and contemporary Pilates exercises on the Mat with corrective exercises targeting key areas for postural balance and improved function for life. Join us for a powerful movement and learning experience!

Free - Everyone welcome!

Join us and be still! The class is open to everyone to cultivate a personal meditation practice and to sit with others in community. Juliet creates a space for each person to be with their own meditation practice, offering some gentle guidance to lead the sit.

Join us in helping to create a more peaceful world for all!  In 1959, the founder of Transcendental Meditation Maharishi Mahesh said that he believed the world could be transformed if just 1% of the world’s population practiced meditation. In 1975, the results of the first scientific research on meditation were announced and found that in twelve American cities where 1% of the population was practicing meditation, there was a statistically significant decrease in crime rates.

100% Donation - Everyone Welcome!

The charge for the class is donation-only and 100% will go to a charity called Dancin Power.  Dancin Power’s mission is to improve and enhance the quality of life of hospitalized children through movement-based creative expression, music and dance!
