"Yoga for Athletes at Running Fit": Yoga Rising.

  community member   < less

Yoga for Athletes is a class for athletes of all abilities and experience, not to be confused with athletic yoga! Our aim is to improve performance and pleasure in athletic pursuits and to prevent injury. Much of the focus is on stretching, but we go deeper than just becoming more limber. We tone underused muscles, build mental strength and stamina with a focus on breath work, and begin to correct the body imbalances that can lead to chronic pain and injury.

CEW+ Inspire Mindful Meditation Sit: Center for the Education of Women.

  community member   < less

As part of the CEW+Inspire initiative, CEW+ will hold regular drop-in mindful meditation sits throughout the academic year. Being present in the moment is a skill that can be learned when practiced on a regular basis. Evidence-based meditation has been shown to reduce implicit age and race bias, reduce the symptoms of anxiety, depression, and pain, improve cognitive functioning, and assist in ending ruminating thought patterns. Come join a drop-in, guided mindful meditation sit and practice being aware and fully present in the moment.
Free and open to all levels of practice. No registration necessary.
CEW+, 330 E. Liberty St. Free. contactcew@umich.edu cew.umich.edu [map]

"Past LIfe Exploration": Natalie Candela, Ph.D.

  community member   < less Dr. Natalie Candela, Certified Hypnotherapist

Have you ever wondered if you lived before and if your past may have an impact on you present life? Past or parallel lives can leave lasting imprints on our present psyche. They affect our likes and dislikes, our beliefs, doubts, and fears, and highlight our interests and talents. Whether you are simply curious about the other lives you might have experienced or you want to clear away what's holding you back and tap into your undiscovered strengths, go on a profound journey of soul discovery and return with answers and a greater connection to the real You.
Crazy Wisdom Bookstore, 114 S. Main St., Ann Arbor. $20. 810-701-5208. natalie@awakenedhypnosis.com www.awakenedhypnosis.com [map]

"A Day of Silence and Meditation Practice, led by Carol Blotter": Michigan Friends Center.

  community member   < less heron

Each retreat is an opportunity to enjoy the quiet of the country while practicing sitting and walking meditation. This day is appropriate for anyone interested in meditation: beginners will have break-out instruction; experienced meditators can be in silence all day; those in-between can practice and have their questions answered. These retreats are fundraisers for the benefit of Michigan Friends Center.
Carol Blotter's meditation practice draws from dual roots in Quaker and Buddhist traditions. She has taught since 1999, has led more than 40 retreats across the United States, and has taught over 50 classes in meditation to spiritual seekers, schools, universities and medical groups. She is a teacher for The Forest Way -- an organization dedicated to providing retreat opportunities conducive to spiritual growth that is both balanced and integrated.
Suggested donation $30 or as able. Pre-registration requested. Contact Carol at (734)475-0942 or cb.meditate@gmail.com to register.
Michigan Friends Center, 7748 Clark Lake Road, Chelsea. Donation. $30. 734.475.1892. manager@mfcenter.org http//www.mfcenter.org [map]

 12:30 p.m. 

Hatha Yoga: Mota Thai Yoga.

  community member   < less

Sundays from 12:30-1:30pm. In this slower paced class, many of the postures are held for longer periods of time than a typical yoga class. This will allow for deep connective tissues to be gently stretched, and for your body to create internal heat. There will also be postures that will flow from one to the next. Class is heated between 85-95 degrees. This class uses low/minimal lighting, allowing you to look inward, and be able to focus on your own yoga practice.
We are located on Huron Street across from the YMCA. You can park in the parking lot in front of the studio. We share a parking lot with several businesses including the Yellow Barn. Look for blue door #22 with a red buddha. Your first class is FREE!
Mota Thai Yoga, 416 West Huron Street, #22. $20 drop in (First class free). info@motathaiyoga.com www.motathaiyoga.com [map]
