Monthly Embodied Dancing Yin-Prov Class Offering:
Taught by Dr. Karah Charette, PT, DPT, RYT- Embodied Dancing Yin-prov is a movement class that uses that structure of yin yoga to allow for deep rest in the body and nervous system, while inviting in spaciousness and play through gentle intuitive movement. This class will use the guidance of the 7 chakras in 7 different yin poses to allow for a deeper embodied connection to the corresponding anatomy (i.e.; the root chakra invites in a deep somatic connection to the pelvic floor). Using cues for imagery and guided anatomy provided by Dr. Karah, the felt sense of each area has the potential to lead into gentle explorative movement. With consent, Dr. Karah may provide light touch for tactile input to the nervous system, or even gentle contact improv touch for those who seek it. This class is held in a container of safety and slowness, with music specifically designed for each chakra to create a resonance of individual exploration held by the collective experience. Come curious, leave embodied.
