Movement Classes

Dr. Miller's movement classes are more than just a chance to move your body with guided instruction. Her classes are an educational experience in which you learn bits and pieces of anatomy, biomechanics, and functional neurology as it relates to the body parts you are moving in the class. You then take this information and experience it in your body with her guided instruction. Each exercise she teaches has a practical application to every day movements. She encourages discussion throughout, as each class is meant to be a learning opportunity.
Please wear something you can move in and bring your questions! Mats and props are provided.

Movement-Based Book Club: "Move Your DNA" by Katy Bowman

How does your body move? What is non-exercise movement? Curious what “diseases of captivity” look and feel like?

Join Melissa Miller and Heidi Eckerson for this unique movement-based book club that meets weekly to explore and experience these questions posed by Katy Bowman in her book Move Your DNA: Restore Your Health through Natural Movement. This book is meant to be a practical resource to help you move your body in new ways, which can sometimes be challenging without guided instruction. Our hour and a half meetings will combine discussion with movement in a safe and supportive environment, applying Katy’s approach to “restor [-ing] our health through natural movement”.

No movement experience necessary!

**Registration opens March 27th (pick up your book at sign up)**
