Community Acupuncture at Nava Yoga Center

Acupuncture treatment provided by Flat Rock Health

Wednesday 1/15, 7:15-8:00pm


Community acupuncture offers affordable, effective treatment in a group setting. In Chinese thinking the concept of energy reserves is easily understood like a bank account. Acupuncture helps the body make sure to replenish itself before draining its energy ‘savings’. While you lay relaxed and quiet, acupuncture needles focus your body’s healing energy where it is most needed. This gentle yet powerful procedure helps your body return to homeostasis: a correct balance between good health and vitality. This month you can expect a gentle and deeply relaxing treatment meant to recharge your drained energy.

Yoga Classes at Nava Yoga Center

During Re-New Week Yoga classes from Nava Yoga Center at The Navy Yard will also be offered, which will focus on reuniting yourself with your center. When you take a deep breath after that last holiday event, the last business deadline or the last day of travel for the year, where do you find yourself? Often it is not exactly where you need to be, your sleep schedule may be off, your diet in disarray, you weren’t quite able to shake that emotional anchor or bad habit that you identified last year. The yoga classes for the week will focus first on taking that deep breath and checking in with you. From there, you can move toward laying down new healthful patterns for the year.
