Move Your Body – Still Your Mind (Fridays)


What: Move Your Body – Still Your Mind

When: Fridays from 11 am to noon, July 5th – August 9th.

Kenneth Russell from SASH (Support and Services at Home) and Downstreet Housing is back at the Waterbury Library for another free 6-week summer session of movement on Fridays from 11 am to noon in the SAL room, beginning Friday, July 5th and running until August 9th.

“Move Your Body – Still Your Mind” begins with the familiar routines of repeating simple Qi Gong Flow movements, which are easy-to-do and enjoyable from day one.  After this first segment, the participants move into an exploration of other movement meditative practices for bringing greater stillness into the mind and body.  This could be a meditative walk, a seated ritual or movement, or seated silence and stillness.  The choice is yours to explore.  The class can be done standing or seated, or a combination of the two.  If you want to sit on the floor, bring an appropriate cushion.

  • First and best served: those who will commit to the entire 6 weeks. (Stillness is best experienced with routine practice.)
  • Next served: those who can make most of the classes.
  • Also served:  those who can only come for a few or on a drop-in basis.
