SOMA Movement Studio and the Central Connecticut Ladies Meetup co-hosted an Intro to Pilates & Yoga Workshop. In exchange for a non-perishable food item donation, participants were welcomed to SOMA and experienced a 90 minute workshop on the Pilates Method and Hatha Yoga. The workshop was co-taught by Mary, the studio director, as well as Cara and Jackie who are both certified Yoga instructors.
The workshop included nuanced Pilates movements that emphasize coordination, breath, and controlled engagement of the core muscles. It then transition into a Yoga practice where asana (postures) elongate, center, and ground you for the evening ahead. The class closed by setting intentions with mindful mediation. SOMA Movement Studio is especially appreciative to all the workshop participants who donated over a hundred non-perishable food items for the Farmington Food Pantry.
