what people say
Barbara approaches each patient with clarifying questions to ensure treatment is geared to their lifestyle, concurrent treatments and immediate needs. I am in awe. Absolutely highly recommend.
acute mysterious pain gone
I came to Barbara with an acute mysterious muscular pain in my chest and she was able to turn me around with cupping and acupuncture in one appointment from crippling pain to breathing with ease in time to enjoy the holidays with my family.
have not been able to find comparable yoga instructor
Barbara is an amazing person and an amazing yoga instructor. She teaches from her heart and truly cares about the well being of each of her students. Her vinyasa and hatha classes are both challenging and rejuvenating and her restorative class is meditative and relaxing. I moved out of Boston two years ago and have not been able to find a comparable yoga instructor anywhere--Barbara is the best!
Mondays: 6:15-7:15 pm
Unwind Yoga Style: Hatha - All Levels
A gentle series of yoga postures is combined with mindful relaxation, meditative technique and plenty of breathing to gently stretch the body, clear the mind and calm the soul.
Tuesdays: 12:15-1:30 pm
Modified Restorative Class Style: Barbara Dummermuth - All Levels
A more active form of the true restorative class using gravity as the driving force. We gently stretch and strengthen the connective tissues, ligaments, sinews, muscles and joints.
The slow and repetitive routine can be very challenging. It will help the student to reach a depth and awareness of the body normally not achieved with the regular yoga routines.
The beauty of this class it can be taken by anyone even without prior yoga experience. It is not about performance but about listening and experiencing your body and learn about its potential.
NOTE: This class is unique in its form and was developed by Barbara Dummermuth, the founder of the Swiss Healing Center.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
benefits of yoga
Yoga as we all know it is aimed to unite the mind, the body, and the spirit. Yogis view that the mind and the body are one, and that if it is given the right tools and taken to the right environment, it can find harmony and heal itself. Yoga therefore is considered therapeutic.
Everyone finds it difficult to relax and unwind sometimes, here is a simple technique to help you wind down:
MEDITATION: Sit up straight, place both feet flat on the floor. Close your eyes. Begin to focus your attention on reciting, either loudly or quietly to yourself, a short mantra or positive statement such as “I am relaxed” or “I can let go” or anything you feel will work for you. Place one hand on your stomach and begin to sync your breath with your positive statement. Breathe in nice and slow, and breathe out nice and slow, (you might find it beneficial to count your breath (count to five as you inhale, and the exhale for the count of 5). Begin to let any distracting thoughts drift away and allow your tensions melt away.
