At Soleful Beginnings, we skillfully integrate physical movement with energy flow and breathwork, with a focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. Our classes are small, adaptable and accessible for all levels of practice. We encourage exploration of poses and offer individualized support with adjustments and variations of poses to get the most out of your practice. Each class has a theme that we will explore on a physical, mental, emotional, and energetic level. Classes will be sprinkled with energy healing modalities such as Reflexology, Reiki and/ or Acupressure/Marma point work.
“Take what you need, go where you need to go”
Yoga & Meditative Movement Classes
A long, slow, grounding practice that stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system (responsible for calming us). At most, a session consists of 3-5 poses over the course of an hour to ninety minutes. Due to its gentleness, simplicity, and many benefits, restorative yoga is for everyone at any skill level! It is also highly adaptable to your individual needs. Reiki is given intuitively throughout the class.
Yin Yoga Classes
A gentle practice where the focus is on finding your edge in the pose. The focus, differing from restorative, is on the stretch. Poses are held for 3-5 min, which allows for energetic movement with a focus on the energetic meridians and centers of the body. Self reflexology, Reiki & positional therapy are integrated into the practice.
Practiced for thousands of years in China, Qigong is one of the four pillars of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which include Herbs and Dietary Regulation, Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and Chinese Massage. The exercises combine movement, mental focus, and breath regulation that act together to direct the flow of Qi (vital energy)
