“We will discover together our tasks as human beings to bring presence into our lives. The possibilities that exist without our bodies are nothing compared to the possibility within us.

Class consists of a vigorous warm-up of the muscles, joints, connections and a concentration on the spine and its purpose to not only hold us up but allow us to move. Each class is tailored to the group.

Wear comfortable clothing, bring a journal or a drawing pad and a desire to discover.”

Cost for this workshop is $15.  For more information, please e-mail or call 518-456-4993.
