Thursday, August 8, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Join us for this rare opportunity to practice with the founder  of Kaiut Yoga.

This highly functional therapeutic yoga addresses the loss of mobility in the body by targeting and freeing the joints.

The  Kaiut Yoga Method, created by Francisco over the past 25 years, was  first taught in his native country of Brazil. It has been designed for  the modern body, to counter the ill effects of a sedentary or  over-active lifestyle. Kaiut  Yoga focuses on long-term health, not short-term results. It is about  returning the body to its optimal state of health and mobility.

 “Yoga  was never meant to be a form of fitness. It is a way for people to  extend their lives and to establish a state of presence using the body  as their main tool.”  ~ Francisco Kaiut

New Class! Feldenkrais®️ for Optimal Movement with Stacy Barrows

Wednesdays, 12:30-1:30 pm, starting July 24

Feldenkrais® classes are movement lessons that work slowly and systematically to organize new patterns of movement. Drawing on neuroscience and martial arts, these classes integrate mind and body through movement puzzles to update old habits. This method does not correct one’s movement, but allows exploration with guided attention to support the student’s learning. Whether those activities are as simple as standing or sitting, or as complex as throwing an opponent in judo, Feldenkrais helps people develop a level of competency and refinement that can reduce pain, improve posture and enhance any performance.

Dr. Stacy Barrows, is a Physical Therapist, Feldenkrais® Practitioner and PMA Pilates Instructor. Stacy owns Smart Somatic Solutions, Inc., an independent clinic serving West Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and surrounding communities. She specializes in movement re-education, Pilates and integrative rehab, conditioning and sports training. She is the creator of the Smartroller®, and sister products, LINKS and SITS. She also authored "The Smartroller Guide to Optimal Movement", second edition, based on the Feldenkrais Method®.
