Introducing New Class: Small Group Therapeutic Fitness

posted May 24, 2019, 8:50 AM by Tara Gerou   [ updated May 31, 2019, 8:24 AM ]

The Studio at White Lotus is proud to be teaming up with Darcy Adams to offer Small Group Therapeutic Fitness classes!

Class Description
Darcy’s movement classes are customized to the individuals who attend each session. Based on Dr. Gerou’s prescription and the clients goals, we will build a class that incorporates many different kinds of movement to help each individual to heal their injuries, build strength in areas of weakness, and increase mobility where needed. 

We incorporate movements from yoga, Pilates, barre, and natural movement practices to create a sequence of poses and stretches to allow the body to open and strengthen. We educate and emphasize the importance of alignment in all aspects of movement, stillness, and even breath work.

Individuals who attend classes will have notes passed from Darcy to Dr Gerou for inclusion in their record and to better inform chiropractic treatments after taking class. This cooperative approach to movement and treatment will improve the results of both strength-building in class and maintenance of adjustments between sessions. 

We look forward to seeing you in class!

Drop-in Yoga Nidra with Niki Jones

posted Jan 4, 2019, 8:16 AM by Tara Gerou   [ updated May 8, 2019, 11:58 AM ]

The Studio at White Lotus is now offering a drop-in class in Amrit Method Yoga Nidra, which translates to "sleep of the yogi." This guided sleep-based meditation practice progressively moves through brainwave states, allowing for the effortless disengagement of the thinking mind. Each class will utilize intentional breath and directed thought, as facilitated by Niki Jones, to allow the body and mind to engage in a deep state of self-healing and restoration.

Yoga Nidra can be beneficial to overall health in the following ways: increases and improves sleep to be more restful; calms the nervous system balancing stress; lowers blood pressure and cholesterol; slows aging process; increases body's natural production of serotonin, melatonin, GABA, oxytocin, endorphins, dopamine, DHEA, and human growth hormone.

Yoga Nidra can be especially effective for those who suffer from stress, insomnia, and burnout; habits and addiction; inflammatory conditions; depression and anxiety; trauma and PTSD; and Type II diabetes. It can also help change the relationship with pain in those who suffer from chronic pain.

When: Tuesdays 6:30-7:30pm
           Saturdays 10-11am
Where: The Studio at White Lotus, located at 1001 Madison St in Oak Park
Cost: $20 per class

Please wear comfortable clothing, bring hydration, and come prepared to relax. No experience necessary!

Niki Jones is an Advanced Amrit Method Certified Yoga Nidra facilitator, RYT200, and perpetual student of knowledge and truth.
