Dot Mandalas are beautiful, unique works of art created by using specialized tools. This is a very peaceful and almost meditative art form that reduces stress, quiets the body, and lets the inner artist blossom.
Step-by-step, dot-by-dot, Katherine will guide you in a different project each month. She‘ll teach you how to use the tools and build the pattern, as well as more advanced techniques such as top-dotting. At the end of each 4-week course, you‘ll have three completed projects you can keep or give as gifts.
Each participant will receive a kit containing everything they need for each project including the monthly project pieces, tools, paint, techniques, and instruction. (The class fee includes the price of the kit).

Instructor: Judy Windt
Location: Avenidas@450 Bryant and Zoom
Feldenkrais® uses slow, mindful movements to achieve powerful effects in terms of strength, flexibility, and holistic integration of body and mind. Unique to the Feldenkrais Method® is that these lessons tie directly into functional movements of daily life, such as walking efficiently, safely lifting objects, and improving one’s posture in sitting or standing.
Judy will guide you through a sequence of movements, encouraging you to move with gentle attention within a comfortable range. As you attend to the improving quality of movement, unnecessary muscular tensions throughout yourself can reorganize and release. Students are often amazed at the quick and clear changes that occur in an Awareness Through Movement lesson!

Imagine your body is a musical instrument that has not been tuned for years. a sound bath is a deeply immersive, full-body listening experience that intentionally uses sound to invite gentle yet powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture the body and mind. It‘s great, especially, for anyone who has not yet learned how to meditate. You might find yourself feeling more creative, less stressed, and more self-aware. Experience it you yourself and see where it takes you!
