MELT Stress Reduction & Meditation – LIVE ONLINE with Katharine Harts
Wednesday mornings 11:00 am – 12:00 pm (HST)
Wednesday evenings 7:15 pm – 8:15 pm (HST)
Starting September 23rd, 2020
This class emphasizes movement and meditation for stress relief. The self-healing practice called MELT renews your interstitial fluids, which support your immune and endocrine (hormonal) systems throughout the entire body. Using a soft body roller and soft, various-sized balls, you restore and revitalize your connective tissue with the MELT technique.
Become mindful of your breath during meditation and on the floor and seated mat exercises. You move through functional flow patterns that enhance balance, grace, coordination, strength and flexibility. You emerge from class feeling relaxed, revitalized and cheered as you head into the rest of your day!
No prior experience necessary. Please dress comfortably. MELT equipment is not absolutely necessary, since the teacher can give you adaptations. Please contact Katharine Harts at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
