Yoga & Meditation

 The ancient practices of yoga and meditation can teach you effective ways to approach modern day life in Chicago or wherever you may travel. Whether you’re a beginner or ready for more advanced yoga, our online yoga offerings have something for everyone. For beginners, we recommend Yoga Basics or Yoga for Range of Motion for the perfect starting point. Try Core-Centered Yoga or Barre Yoga to work up a good sweat as you tone your muscles and still your mind. If you prefer a more dynamic flow in your yoga experience, we offer Mandala Flow and Jivamukti Vinyasa Yoga classes. For relaxation and stress relief, we recommend Restorative or Yin Yoga, which are great for easing tension through a meditative, calming experience. Spiral Fascia Flow Yoga helps to unwind tension held in connective tissues. We even offer some of our therapeutic yoga classes in Japanese!

While all classes at our wellness and yoga studio seek to provide moving meditation, Still & Moving Center also offers you sitting Meditation classes, always free of charge. From your home in Chicago you can join a teacher in a live, interactive meditation class online. You can also participate in our Sunday Satsang conversations on any number of mindful topics with the delightful, spiritually-inclined seekers.

Hawaiian Hula for Windy Chicago

Did you realize that Hawaiians have dozens of names for the many different kinds of winds and breezes? When you take our authentic Hawaiian culture and hula classes virtually, you learn to appreciate all aspects of nature. You learn to dance like the waves and the lava, as well as the wind. Students from literally all over the world dedicate themselves to our online hula classes with beloved hula teacher Mālia Helelā, who plays the ukulele, sings, translates Hawaiian, dances and cues her students as she teaches. She’s amazing. You can even take online training in Hawaiian Lomilomi massage from Mālia!

Permeating all of our classes, you’ll find the spirit of aloha – of gentle welcome. We choose our teachers for their care as well as their high levels of expertise. You benefit from these highly interactive online classes that take into mindful consideration your body’s own way of moving to feel better and happier.
