ABOUT motion center yoga + OUR MISSION
We are a collective of independent instructors, teaching in a beautiful, renovated mill, 84 Fountain Street, minutes from the East Side of Providence. While our styles vary, we all offer skilled, individualized instruction that honors the deeper aspects of yoga. Classes are dynamic, inspiring, deeply relaxing, and centering. We offer a wide range of classes including Iyengar Yoga, Kundalini, Anusara, Slow Flow, Hatha Yoga, Kids and Family Yoga. Our Intro to Yoga and Beginner Yoga will give you a firm foundation for any style you may choose to practice. We are currently offering the only ongoing Feldenkrais class (Awareness Through Movement) in RI. As a collective, each yoga teacher is "running her own business" and sharing in the upkeep of the studio. This model allows for both affordable classes as well as gives the teachers the opportunity to earn a living wage. It fosters learning and community by honoring both the student and teacher.
Our new space is 84 Fountain St, Pawtucket, right off Exit 29. AND ITS ALMOST READY!
Naama and Christy are teaching their regularly scheduled classes.
Feldenkrais will resume in September

We are in an interim space on the 3rd floor, unit 307. Enter through the 80 Fountain Street entrance!
We will still be hosting the Insight Meditation Community of Providence on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 7:15pm. Meetings include a 40-minute sitting meditation practice, a 20-minute reading from the work of a Dharma teacher and a 20-30-minute facilitated time for reflections about the reading and the practice. All are welcome.

Awareness Through Movement (ATM) lessons are the gentle movement sequences created and refined over 35 years of teaching by Moshe Feldenkrais. The idea that awareness improves action is a simple and obvious one. The Feldenkrais Method offers a straight-forward, practical application of this understanding. You can learn to be aware, relaxed and present while in action, and find the tools you need to recover from the effects of stress, overwork, chronic pain or injury. An ATM lesson might focus on a specific part of the body, or involve developmental patterns and basic human movements such as crawling, reaching, rolling, bending, or breathing. These virtually effortless movement sequences are often done comfortably lying down, to eliminate the need of engaging the anti-gravity work, and to increase relaxation. The emphasis is on exploration, creating freedom of movement and deepening awareness. There is no preset goal to achieve or model to imitate. You move at your own pace and learn to recognize self limiting habitual patterns or movements and to experiment with easier and healthier alternatives. Feeling comfortable and moving without strain are integral to the method. *3 month expiration on 10-class card
