Embodiment Practices

5Rhythms® Sweat with Alyssa

Alyssa will spin Waves, holding space for this class with minimal instruction. This is an opportunity to delve deeper into your personal dance meditation, following the body’s intelligence, while guided by the music through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness. The 5Rhythms® – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional, and intellectual.

Private Somatic Sessions

Private somatic sessions offer you the ability to dive into your own personal story, interests and healing. Private sessions with Alyssa are supportive for individuals that are looking to receive additional support in developing their own personal breath and movement practices. Sessions are created to explore, build and expand your ability to create healthy daily practices to enhance your overall physical and emotional vitality and a deeper connection to self.

The Still Point. Yin Yoga

The Still Point is an invitation to connect with the deepest tissues of the body and to activate the flow of chi through the body’s subtler channels. A yin practice of focused breathwork and long holds, The Still Point encourages the deep release of connective tissue, ligaments, joints, bones, and fascia networks of the body. This practice provides an opportunity to create physical, as well as mental, harmony.

Gentle Yoga

A mindful, quiet, and spiritual exploration of yoga and meditation designed to reduce stress, open the heart and mind, and heal the soul. This class incorporates various techniques to bring your body and mind into balance and relaxation while also creating a greater awareness of yogic philosophy, our subtle energies and universal connection. Each class will generally include mindful gentle movement of the body, breathing exercises, guided and silent meditations, chakra exercises, yoga nidra, mantras, and restorative poses. No prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary.

Sthira-Sukham = Stability and Ease

In this class, we focus our intelligence on our bodies to create space, strength, stability, and mobility in an unorthodox manner. Using traditional asanas, yet many non-usual exercises taken from modern biomechanics, we target specific joints, muscle groups and bones, habitual movements, and posture to develop a non-judgmental look at ourselves as the object of study. The use of straps, blocks, the wall, and other elements enhance the journey through unfamiliar areas in our anatomy as well as into old habits, physical and emotional. Deepening the understanding of our own movement is the catalyst for awareness and change. Challenging, yet accessible to all, options to modify provided for all levels of practice.

Heart, Breath and Bones: Adaptive Community Yoga Class at Mookshi

For the past two years, Alyssa has been quietly leading a beautiful group of humans through breath and mindful movement at an Adult Day Program twice a week here in the city. These individuals carry with them varying degrees of developmental and intellectual challenges that they bring to the mat or chair. Alyssa has experienced the deepest learning by working alongside these folks – so much so, that a public, community yoga program has been created at Mookshi Healing Arts. This program is a monthly offering and is FREE to the public – that’s YOU. I invite you all to join us in the studio and practice alongside these incredible yogis.

Every third Thursday at 11:45 AM -12:45 PM

Space is limited, please pre-register your attendance.
