Workshops at Motion Center Yoga in Pawtucket, Rhode Island are underway and off to a great start. The 6-hour programs consist of four 1.5 hour sessions, which meet weekly on Saturday mornings from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm. Each month focuses on a new theme and follows a progression from week to week, allowing us to delve deeper as we progress through the month.

The program is open to students ages 16 and up and offers a quiet and relaxing respite with which to close the week. Although you will get the greater benefit from registering for the full series, weekly drop-ins will be allowed on a space available basis. Scroll down for further information.

IS ATM RIGHT FOR YOU? 

  • Are looking for a gentle, deeply therapeutic mind body method?

  • Do you want to cultivate better mind body integration.

  • Would you like to experience greater ease and comfort in your body?  

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, this class is a great place to start. On the most basic level this is a class in which you will learn to move with greater awareness. On a deeper level it is a class that will connect you with yourself at the deepest levels of being human. Through an interweaving process of moving, thinking, sensing, and feeling, you will find a renewed sense of connection and possibility.


WHAT TO EXPECT

So what actually happens during a lesson? You will lie down on a mat or blanket, and your teacher will lead you through verbally guided instructions to perform a series of simple movements. At the same time, you will start to pay attention to how these movements resonate throughout your body.

ATM lessons promote deep reflection by focusing on one movement theme and all it's possible variations. Each individual lesson is tightly focused, but the breadth and scope of the process is incredible. There are ATM lessons that address virtually every aspect of human motor function. Each lesson functions like it's own little world of self-discovery, and you will find a renewed sense of integration with the new pathways each individual ATM lesson offers. 


IS IT SAFE?

The movement quality is gentle and should not cause you any discomfort. That being said, if you have an existing injury or pain issue, it can sometimes require a little extra patience to learn how to negotiate the experience in a comfortable way. In certain cases you may need to modify a position or movement in order to participate comfortably.

It is advisable to speak with your doctor if you have any concerns about your ability to participate safely. You might also consider seeking out private study, if you feel that your needs will require more individualized attention.

 

WHO CAN ATTENED

The program is open to students ages 16 and up and will offer a quiet and relaxing respite with which to close the week. You need not have previous experience to join the class, but those who do will still find an expansive inner world of growth.

You must still register in advance whether you are coming for one, two, three, or all four classes in the series. Please be sure to select the correct date (or dates) you wish to attend from the drop down menu before clicking the “Registration” button.

Registration will close once a class fills, or by 10:00 am the day before the class is scheduled to meet, whichever comes first. There will be no same day registration.
