Calm and Strong
Mondays, 6-7:15pm, Jan. 15 – March 5
Sometimes when we meditate, we forget about the body.
And sometimes when we care for the body, we leave out the mind.
Why not exercise the body and the mind….together?
That’s the impetus behind our new program – Calm and Strong.
Each 1.25hr class is lean, fun, and to the point, covering both meditation and exercise from a scientific, spiritual, and progressive viewpoint. Participants are then trained in both a 10 minute meditation AND a 10 minute exercise workout designed to create positive changes in both the body and the mind.
BREAKDOWN OF WEEKLY CLASS SESSIONS:
25 minutes of instruction on mindfulness and meditative techniques and practices
25 minutes of instruction on exercise, nutrition, and the science behind them
10 minutes of meditation practice
10 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training
Each participant also receives audio recordings of both the meditation and exercise, and video recordings of the exercises, so they can practice throughout the week….20 minutes of practice a day in both exercise and meditation!
Week to week the practices build on one another, enabling the participants to really feel and experience the progress that can be enabled by weekly attention to both physical and mental aspects of strength and resiliency.
A comprehensive course book is also a part of the program, exploring the science and concepts of the various practices. Also includes recipes designed to support both physical and mental health as you progress through the program.
**Modifications of the exercises are offered to include all body types, fitness levels, and physical limitations. If you have a specific injury or physical limitation, modifications are offered for every exercise.**
**Though the exercises are short in duration, they are designed to get the heart rate up, fatigue the muscles to build strength, and develop some flexibility. It’s a cardio workout. BUT PLEASE NOTE: Modifications can be made for all body types and fitness level!**
