Body & Brain is a national leader in holistic health and wellness. Our classes in yoga, tai chi, meditation, detoxification, and rhythmic movement combine East Asian healing and energy philosophies. A person is considered healthy only if one has health of mind, body, and spirit—which is why our exercises, workshops, and programs focus on opening the mind and heart as well as healing the body. Our practice utilizes a 5-step energy practice to activate the brain through a deep mind-body connection. By developing your capacity to feel energy, you can quiet your mind to experience peace with the flow of life to unleash profound personal growth.
We offer a wide variety of classes which involve breathing techniques, meridian stretching, core-strengthening, and energy circulation & accumulation. All classes are geared towards whole-person care, and all ages and levels are welcome (kids’ classes are available on Saturdays).
