Instructor: Jennie Ladew-Duncan
My name is Jennie. I have been making art and writing for as long as I can remember. Stories are what we are made up of. We allow old messages and distorted perceptions to taint our present. Through repeated reinforcement, they become our "identity stories," that continue to influence our actions and our feeling states long after the actual event(s) are over. When we get stuck in emotional pain, we may forget that we are creative beings with many different stories to tell.
We are more than our public facade. We have dreams, desires, hidden talents and any number of positive attributes that we do not utilize. We also may have considerable distress and pain that we need to look at and work through to be the person that we were meant to be.
Using a non-clinical trauma-informed approach, I offer a safe environment where individuals are valued for their courage and integrity. Through self-expression, there can be healing. There will be an emphasis on looking at transitions and traumas and turning them into opportunities for transformation. In this class you will learn new ways of seeing your life and have a better appreciation of your self-worth and your strengths. Working directly on transitions and trauma work can be challenging. Please remember to take care of yourself in and out of class and continue with external supports as needed.
Authentic Movement, Private Sound Healing and Sound Movement Sessions
Yoga for ALL Bodies
Summer 2018 Sundays 10:00 am
Instructor :Tia Fattaruso
Hi, I'm Tia. My yoga practice is based on the idea that our bodies already know, perfectly and exactly, what they - we - need. My personal practice is something more like authentic movement, where there is no pose or direction that I strive for, but instead allow my body to move in any way it so desires - or rather, I try to get out of the way and allow my body to be moved. But, I found authentic movement by starting with - yoga! Through the repetition and discipline of moving through, with, in the same poses time and again (though they take on a life of their own each time, it's always new), I also came to find my own movements. I have completed a 200 hour YTT in Embodyoga (Yoga Center Amherst), and my yoga classes reflect those teachings and principles, which include developmental movement patterns, cellular movement, and body-mind consciousness. I also offer private sound healing and sound movement sessions, and my yoga teaching is inevitably informed by what I've learned and gained in this practice as well. I look forward to seeing you in class. To find out more about sound healing and sound movement sessions, contact me at
