Shintaido - with Joe Zawielski.
New Classes begin March 28, Thursdays from 6 pm - 7:30 pm - 6 weeks for $60, or $15 per class, drop-ins welcome.
Shintaido was developed in the 1960's by a group of top ranking martial artists who sought to create a body movement that would contain the wisdom of the traditional forms while reflecting the desire to cultivate the art of peace rather than the art of war. Classes will consist of interactive exercise programs designed to bring the body, mind, and spirit into harmony. Individual, partner and group exercises are used not only to strengthen and coordinate the body, but also to help develop self-confidence and cooperation with others. A great way to get fit, cultivate your life energy (KI or Chi energy) and have some fun. Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Joseph Zawielski began studying Shintaido in 1979 through a Worcester Night Life program. Since then his studies have taken him to Europe, Japan, and the West Coast of the USA to study with many of the founding members of Shintaido. He has been a certified instructor since 1984 and has taught locally, nationally, and internationally. For more information contact Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-798-8638
Kundalini Yoda: Monday Nights at 6 pm in the Lounge
Kundalini yoga transforms sexual energy into spiritual energy. Brought to the United States by the Sikh leader, Yogi Bhajan, in 1969, it was originally a secret form of yoga available only to a select few.
The positions and work outs transform the energy of the chakras (energy centers in the body) into a state of well being through body locks.
Burute Vasquez, a local social worker who has been doing Kundalini yoga for 20 years, finds the mantras in Kundalini yoga helpful in her efforts to concentrate. She claims this makes it easier for her than other forms of meditation she has tried. She calls the yoga, "a life-saver."
Claudia Abeyon Gherbesi, a local biologist, has been practicing Kundalini yoga for eight years. She says it gave her a way to associate with her teenaged daughter and it makes her feel "more relaxed, more flexible, and more able to concentrate."
Dan Benoit, a local architect who has been practicing Kundalini yoga for over 20 years, believes it is just the thing after a hectic day at work to feel relaxed, yet focused.
Participants can work at their own pace and level but are encouraged to give 100 per cent. Classes range from intense physical workouts to calm focus through breath awareness.
The Kundalini Yoga class meets at 6:30 Monday nights in the Lounge behind the Sanctuary. All are welcome.
