Gentle exercises that provide a full body workout while improving mind-body connection, deep breathing, balance, and alignment. More info at
Check out our regular classes at PMC every Tuesday 6-7pm

Authentic Movement – Malia Burkhart
Guided exercises in moving your body freely, and following your intuition.

Acupuncture – Rebeka Ndosi
Traditional Chinese Acupuncture ~Five Element Acupuncture ~Chinese Herbal Medicine
I sought out and studied East Asian Medicine because these modalities begin from the foundation of wholeness. Each person walks in a whole person, is treated holistically, and is part of the larger environments, systems, and universe in which we all live. I focus primarily on the treatment of stress and trauma, as well as other forms of internal medical treatment.

CranioSacral – Susan Raffo
Susan works with the nervous system, muscles, bones, ligaments and fascia. Susan’s CranioSacral work helps decrease pain, realign body structures and release held trauma.

Global Somatics Body/Energywork – Ayo
Ayo offers personalized support through hands on bodywork, breath work and energy work. This includes working with the muscles, tissues, and organs of the body through touch, while incorporating breathing techniques and and energy work such as Reiki.

Somatic Visualization – Ayo
Guided visualization techniques to support a deeper connection to your body.

Somatic Massage – Malia Burkhart
My practice focuses on releasing tension in the body stored in the body through a variety of bodywork techniques, including: Fascia unwinding through deep steady pressure, supported movement and assisted stretching; Deep muscle tissue release, outlining and describing specific muscles to release and relax; Quiet, slow, and more subtle forms of touch that communicate with the body with gentleness and calm; Gentle rocking or shaking to integrate and encourage the body to release patterns of holding and tension.

Swedish Massage – JooHee
Swedish massage uses long guided strokes to relieve tension throughout the entire body.

Ihotu Ali – Abdominal Therapy, Pre/Postnatal Massage
Abdominal therapy includes a gentle massage of the belly and low back, guiding organs back into optimal position, clearing scar tissue, and restoring blood and energy flow. Helpful for digestive discomfort, anxiety, painful periods, fetal positioning in pregnancy, and for releasing emotions from sexual violence or trauma. You will also learn how to perform a simple self-massage to continue at home.

Bruce Thao – Reiki Energy Healing and Angel Tarot Readings
The reiki energy healing and angel tarot readings can be done separately or in combination depending on what is needed. Reiki encourages deep relaxation, clears your chakras, and allows you to tap into messages from your Higher Self, guides and angels. Angel tarot readings provide guidance and clarity when you are seeking answers to questions that could be related to your love life, life purpose, or more.

Spring Equinox Sanga – Serita Colette
In this workshop we will explore Shakti, the goddess of POWER. Through mantra, asana, guided relaxation and meditation you will cultivate a connection with Shakti that will inspire your Equinox intentions. There are many shaktis in the yogic tradition and each is a reminder of the innate power within each of us waiting to unfold. This practice is open to all levels. Please bring a journal and a pen.

Somatic Conflict Coaching – T. Zea Leguizamon
Build skills to navigate conflict using nonverbal communication & somatics applications. And together, help create a future of “healthy conflict”.

Meditation – Stacy McClendon
