This Month’s Class Schedule: visit this page to see the schedule of our ongoing classes: go to Balancing Arts Studio page, hit the link for the updated schedule

Classes and Private Offerings:

Classic Yoga: Mondays, 6:30 pm. A strength and balance, stretch and release class. Integrating pranayama and meditation. Concluding with Sound Energy (gong, singing bowls…)

Mid Week Meditation/Yoga Nidra/Nada Class: One Wednesday per month, 6:30-7:30 pm (you must pre-register for this class by txt Sheri in advance-262.719.4633)

Join others who want to develop or advance a meditation practice in this group setting. 

We’ll begin with a calming breathing technique before moving into Yoga Nidra, an ancient practice from the yoga tradition. Yoga Nidra, or “yogic sleep,” is an effortless state of being, experienced in a reclined position, that invites complete physical, mental and emotional  relaxation. With its many profound benefits, we will use it to deepen our practice. 

We will then move into a seated guided meditation, and then a  session of silent meditation. 

Class will conclude with the use of crystal singing bowls, gong baths and other sound/music designed to bring you into complete harmony.   

Accommodates all levels of meditators, including beginners. 

Private Meditation Training: Join Sheri in this one-on-one training where you will learn how to meditate with a step-by-step creative approach based on ancient philosophy and modern research. Sheri will privately teach and guide you  through the Life-Artistry Meditation program that is normally offered in a group setting. Call Sheri for details and to register. 

Morning Stretch-Thursdays, 9:30-10:30 am

Join us on Thursday mornings as we  experience the beauty of stretch and release with  Yin based slow-paced yoga  that includes a series of long holding postures.    Blocks, straps, sandbags, and bolsters are used to aid in the comfort of the yogi.

Self-Investment: $11 drop in. $10 per class with purchase of class pass of four or more 

 

Energy Private Sessions 
Join us for one of our private, Energy Sessions! A dynamic fusion of multi modalities that work with vibrations to initiate the body’s natural healing response.  Sound therapy, Reiki, and Vibroacustics are just a part of this relaxing session.   

“When I learned that Sheri was doing vibracoustic (sound and energy) therapy sessions, I signed up!  Now I call it “sonic massage” because, as a practitioner and teacher of massage therapy, I understand the therapeutic benefits of balancing the mind and body on a deep cellular level. Turns out that the research for Sound Energy healing  has  shown many of the same remarkable results from reducing anxiety, pain, heart rate, blood pressure , healing time as well as balancing circulation,  immune response, and brain wave activity. My own personal experience supports those claims! Comfortable, safe, noninvasive, and very effective.” BS

YOGA with LUKE KETTERHAGEN-
International Yoga Instructor, Luke Ketterhagen, is coming back to the studio to teach his dynamic class that integrates poses, breathing, meditation and discussion.

I have studied picture book writing diligently, attended meetings, critique groups and expensive conferences, yet I probed in the dark. Then I found Willow Words and Sheri Bestor.
