With Sherry Oakes, RYT-200 & Certified Asahi Instructor

What is ASAHI? A Simple And Healthy Idea.  Asahi Nordic Method is a universal form of physical exercise that can be practiced by people of all ages and in all states of health. It is a very simple, but comprehensive and efficient exercise routine, which helps people improve their health and quality of life.

Finnish health experts tested ancient practices against the rigors of modern medical research and neuroscience to formulate a simple, but effective mind-body method called Asahi that anyone can do, in a standing, sitting, or even in a horizontal position.

Exercising doesn’t have to be fast and furious. Research shows that slow and gentle exercise is the faster way for most of us to improve our health and well-being, and Asahi provides this without risk of injury. Asahi is very easy to learn, easy to adjust to personal needs and is effective!

What will you experience during these classes? 

  • Regular Asahi practice will help with flexibility, muscle stamina, balance, coordination, and concentration. It also helps with learning proper ergonomic postures for work and every day. The movement of Asahi stimulates the blood vessels and nerves and increases blood and lymph circulation which raises metabolism.
  • There are 3 series that can be practiced.  Series 1 will be the basis of practice which you will learn for your own home practice.  We will also incorporate Series 2 and 3 into practice throughout the weeks.
  • Each series builds on the last and provides our bodies with more options to move and be healthy

What are some of the benefits of Asahi?

  • Tones the muscles and improves balance
  • Relaxes the mind and lowers blood pressure
  • Stimulates metabolism and boosts the immune system
  • Teaches ergonomic movements to prevent back and neck strain
  • Provides social contact in a group setting for better mental health

Who should try Asahi? Asahi is safe and effective for everyone! Even those with

  • Circulatory or respiratory issues
  • Parkinson’s, MS or fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis, osteoarthritis, hip or knee replacements
  • Limited exercise experience, have special needs, or are pregnant

FACILITATOR
Sherry Oakes

I have been doing yoga for about 15 years and have learned so much about how it can benefit me and my body. From scoliosis and back pain to anxiety, yoga has helped me to be able to get passed some hurdles that I once thought were impassable. I want to be able to share this with others.

Sharing all the benefits of yoga with everyone. There are so many levels of relaxation, stretching, and strengthening for everyone at any level. I want to help others to get the most out of their experience and leave feeling accomplished and at peace. I want people to realize they can do things at their own pace, own style, and not feel intimidated by the process.
