Are You Ready To FEEL Balance In Your Life?
Invigorate Your Body
Your body is your vehicle for your life’s journey. To achieve a vigorous state of health, we need regular exercise, pure food and water, good quality sleep and a healthy sex life. Physical work alone does not yield vitality. Optimal physical performance is multifactorial; requiring strength, endurance, power, flexibility, agility and balance amidst constantly changing conditions. But your health is not just physical……..
Awaken Your Mind
Deepen your mind-body connection utilizing mindful movement arts and functional exercise wherein your body is your instrument. Our classes challenge you to be fully present-mentally and physically. Attention is a valuable commodity. BE HERE NOW is a great challenge in our distracted culture. Once YOU have attracted your own attention, we ask you to tune inward to become an astute observer of how your thoughts effect your breath, emotions, power , balance , freedom of movement and confidence – your Body Language!
Empower Your Spirit
We invigorate your body and awaken your mind so that you may remember your essential nature. Spirit is your inner wisdom, your life force, source of your creative inspirations and the key to your innate power to heal. Whatever beliefs you hold around your spirit/soul are welcome here and will likely be enriched though your practice.
As more of us invest in our well being, we come into a state of balance and find the energy we need to focus on creative solutions to our challenges. This is what Body Language Studio is ultimately here for: promoting well-being-
starting with YOU!
