Restorative Movement Class Series

with Caroline Snijder

Jan 18- March 21

Saturdays 8:00am - 9:00am

Join Caroline for an in-depth exploration of movement and body alignment. Discover which of your parts are doing all the work and which are no longer participating. In this workshop series, you will gain the tools to see how you actually move, so you can actively restore mobility, balance, and strength. Each class will also include context for moving outside the studio (like homework, but fun!) so you can incorporate your new skills into your everyday life. By adapting your daily movement habits, you can regain a structure capable of standing up to life’s demands.

Trained as a Nutritious Movement® certified Restorative Exercise Specialist, Caroline’s work is grounded in an evolutionary biological perspective that the body functions optimally when experiencing natural movement—motions your body would make if you lived in nature.

Mandala Vinyasa

Extended Class Series w/ Liza Higbee

Monthly - February 8th

4:15pm - 6:15pm

Mandala: an integrated structure organized around a unifying center; loosely translated to mean “circle.” In Buddhist and Hindu traditions, mandalas are sacred geometric figures which represent wholeness, the universe, and our relationship to the infinite.

Vinyasa: linking breath and movement with awareness. Join Liza to slow down to human tempo and connect with sacred patterns of the infinite.


Mandala Vinyasa is movement in meditation, inspired by Buddhist and Hindu teachings. Traditional yoga postures are interwoven by transitions that guide you 360° around your mat. As you move through the mandala, your orientation in time and space changes. In the midst of this change, the invitation is to connect with and steady yourself from core center. As the mandala becomes familiar, you may drop into a deeply meditative state, restoring your ability to connect within and beyond yourself.

Investment: $18 drop-ins
