Slow Flow On-Line
cancelled online class
Thursday, June 2 • 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Elisabeth Schramm
Elisabeth is a clinical social worker in private practice, integrating various modalities in therapy, along with yoga and mindfulness meditation practices. Her therapy practice is focused on working with anxiety, depression, post traumatic stress and life transitions. Her focus in training has been CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy), MBCT (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy), and well as the application of Mindfulness Meditation in Clinical Practice. Elisabeth has also completed training workshops with respect to yoga for anxiety and depression, and has explored practices that are suitable for PTSD. Yoga and mindfulness practices have proven to be of benefit in building self awareness in body, mind and emotion. These practices may be helpful in regulating and processing emotion. Clients and yoga students will often report a feeling of being more balanced, at ease, and a notable shift toward self acceptance and self compassion.
Beginning with centering and pranayama, we’ll move into a flowing practice, to help you find the space between poses while still retaining the gentle rhythm of a flow yoga class.
The pace will allow you to gradually warm up joints and muscles. There will be time to explore the poses and give attention to form and alignment.
Slow flow is about slowing down and bringing awareness to your mind-body connection. This practice may cultivate mindfulness, breath awareness, flexibility, balance, and strength. The class will end with Savasana, deep rest.
Adaptations/modifications will be offered as needed. Participants are invited to make choices in how to make the practice their own.
