Tuesday, November 14th - December 5th 6-6:45 PM

With Sherry Oakes, RYT-200 & Certified Asahi Instructor

What is Asahi? Asahi Nordic Mind-Body Movement – a revolutionary Finnish practice that provides solutions to the health challenges of these times

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!

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.
