The Brain and the Power of Movement with Cyndi Morris
April 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT$35.00
Why does it feel so good to move our body?
What is happening in our body and particularly in our brain that allows us to feel so free, light and even joyful when we are moving our bodies? Maybe you’ve experienced the runners high, the ecstatic dance, the emotional and mental power of a good workout. If not let’s do it. We’ll spend some time discussing the brain and just how important movement is to learning and the powerful benefits it has not only to our physical bodies, but on our brain and emotions. Exploring the places in our body where we store negative emotional baggage. Then we will practice some gentle movement activities that can help to release stress, improve flexibility and strength and even encourage an increased sense of emotional joy.
Come and explore the anatomy of movement.

I have been gathering groups of people together to get fit and have fun, since I was a new mom. Creating a safe space for adults, young adults and children to play. My own childhood fitness story wasn’t much fun and I wanted a different experience for my young daughters. Coaching my kids soccer games and leading children’s groups, naturally transitioned into facilitating play groups for parents as I connected with other parents who were also looking for ways to stay fit. I guided aerobics classes, jogging, biking or whatever activity sounded fun. Discovering yoga made me aware as yoga does that my mind needed some help slowing down. My yoga practice thrived but accessible meditation eluded me even though it was exactly what I needed to quiet my critical mind never feeling adequate even through success.
