Calling In The One: February 15, 2015 at Evolve Movement

The work of letting go of old patterns, clearing space for and clarifying the relationships we want in our lives can be challenging and raw. This workshop explores various introspective and intention-setting exercises (journaling and meditations) in combination with sequences and poses meant to involve our bodies with the processing of our emotions. Recently married teacher Laura Nickerson will guide practitioners through some of the exercises she credits with allowing her to find the love of her life, drawing on the work of author Katharine Woodward Thomas.

Restorative Yoga & Reiki: November 2, 2014 3:30-5:30 pm at Evolve Movement

Reiki is a form of energy work that originated in Japan. Whether you’ve had Reiki before or are curious about it, this is a good opportunity to get some! We’ll do particularly long holds of restorative poses, conducive to each practitioner experiencing an abbreviated personal Reiki session. Your instructor, Laura Nickerson, is a certified Reiki Master.
