The essence of the studio is integration of body, mind, and spirit through practices that enhance mind-body coordination.

I have selected classes that will improve your physical health, mental clarity, and heighten your senses of perception. It is my hope that by participating in these programs you are able to enjoy increased vitality, and experience enjoyment, enthusiasm and inspiration in all areas of life.
When you enjoy physical vitality, emotional stability, and psychological centeredness, your ability to express authentic compassion and love , not only for yourself, but also for others in the world, expands. I believe it is through awareness, that each of us contributes to the collective awakening of world consciousness. It is my hope that by making these meditative practices available to the community, we can contribute to peace and harmony in the world. There are many methods and practices of Meditation; each one orients us to self-inquiry with compassion.
Classes at the Embodied Arts Studio draw on the traditions of non-aggressive martial arts and mindfulness practice to offer simple yet deep techniques that help you recognize how your mind and body habitually react to pressure, and to access more skillful and unified responses to all aspects of life. These meditative practices acquaint you with language and form so you can learn to recognize reactive habits that limit your effectiveness and develop the competency of centered listening. As your practice deepens, you work with more complex issues such as decision-making and unconscious resistance. Classes at the Embodied Arts Studio are offered on a continual basis, you are welcome to join in at any time. Each month there is a different selection of classes offered; a current schedule and an expanded overview of each can be viewed on the website calendar and class pages.
