Dr. Robert Van Horn instructs the following:
  • Tai Chi
  • This is one of our Focused classes.
     
    Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese internal martial art form practice in which specific sequences of mindful movements and breathing stimulate a state of concentrated calm. The aim of Tai Chi is to cultivate the qi or life energy to flow smoothly and powerfully throughout the body.

  • Restorative for the Spine

  • This is one of our Focused classes.

     

    A Svaroopa-style class, Restorative for the Spine is based on core release and spinal decompression using precise alignments to open the body from the tailbone to the top of the spine. With the support of blankets, students are encouraged to relax into poses that release deep tension in and along the spine. Often this release quiets the mind, reduces pain, helps accelerate injury recovery and promotes better overall health. Restorative for the Spine is led by a certified Svaroopa yoga instructor.

     

    Please note, this class is not suitable for women pregnant in their first trimester or students with organ transplant on immunosuppressant medications.

  • Qigong
  • This is one of our Focused classes
     
    Qigong (literally energy practice) is a system of healing developed in ancient China. The practice of gentle movements and meditations cleanses, fortifies, and circulates qi (life energy) throughout the physical and energetic body. Qigong can help reduce stress, enhance strength and vitality, foster mental tranquility, and offer harmony with nature. 

  • Meditation and Self Inquiry Half-Day Retreat

  • Take time this afternoon to practice guided and silent meditations, listen to spiritual talks, and connect with your true nature. Meditating in a group lends power to its effectiveness and enhances the development of individual practice, especially over a longer period of time.
