New Year Blessings to YOU
 
A blessing is defined as something conducive to happiness and welfare.  A blessing is also an action or words that bestow upon a person or thing the intention of happiness and good welfare.  We are upon the threshold of a new year in which we can learn our way into new experiences and meanings for both offering and receiving the blessings this precious life has in store for us.
 
 January at MBR is excited to learn into a new year of blessings with you.  Our classes, workshops, and private sessions begin January 1st and will keep us all thriving throughout the year. The annual mailing is on it's way, and below you can check out highlights for January. As always, please see our website for further details. 
 
With blessings of peace, strength,
deep joy, healing of the most impossible circumstances,
and 
warm-hearted happiness,
 
Mary Abrams &
All at Moving Body Resources

SOMATICSOLSTICE MAT
 
Taught by Laura V Ward
Tuesdays - 10am - 11am
 
 
Somatic Solstice Mat classes emphasize the subjective experience of embodiment by inquiring into the potential space inside and outside of the body with playful awareness. Through this approach we lean into greater connectivity, fluid resilience and functional integrity. Simple user-friendly exercises elicit healthy movement patterns that stimulate, massage and hydrate the soft tissues and the nervous system. This class cultivates a level of body intelligence and fitness that will continue to support your agility throughout life.  Drawn from diverse movement forms including Ballet, Pilates, Yoga, Dance, Laban Movement Analysis, Bartenieff Fundamentals, Sounding, Continuum Movement, and Connective Tissue Therapy, there is balance of specific form-based exercise and non-judgmental free moving improvisational work. IT SHOULD BE FUN and FEEL GOOD!
 
No prior experience required. This is appropriate for all levels, ages and body types.

MOVING BODY SILENCE
WEEKEND

 Led by Mary Abrams
 
January 5-7, 2018
Fri 2pm – Sun 5pm
Fee: $225
 
During this weekend of silence, we will deepen our awareness of inner silent body experience with breath, sound, and movement, to facilitate our dreams and intentions, and open to a new year of life.  Letting go of words, we will dwell with the inner pulsing, murmuring, oozing, and soft vibrancy of our living bodies. 

 
We gather on Friday afternoon to review and practice a sequence of breath, sound, and movement that becomes our mantra for diving into silence.  We will have a dinner break and return without words to commence our silent exploration which lasts until Sunday between 3-4 pm (2 nights & almost 2 days!).  We will emerge from silence back to words, sharing reflections from our journeys and cultivating support for what comes to life from our silent level experiences.
