Breathwork – A critical component for life. Breathing is instrumental in all forms of movement. Breathe with movement is a most foundational aspect of exercise that builds strength and promotes relaxation.

Pilates Mat –Joseph Pilates’ method of his original thirty-four movements require discipline, concentration, and control. Responsibility for well-being resides with the individual. The Hearts & Minds Movement Studio offers compassionate instruction that makes sense to your body while developing core strength and flexibility.

Yoga – This blend of Hatha Yoga with Pilates, includes stimulating the mind to act and support the body two ways; gentle or diligent.

Chair & Standing Work – Principles of movement with the aim of results accompanied with as much or as little support required. Chair work encourages focusing on movement from a seated position. Standing work develops balance and long, lean leg muscles.

The Qigong Playroom is a gentle approach to experiment and practice the art of Qigong, an Eastern philosophy of the movement and flow of Life Energy.

Fitness Walk – Be able to meet your daily step goals regardless of the weather. This 20-minute plus routine strengthens the hips, the core, the legs and increases cardio endurance. Greater benefits than walking in place by keeping pace with a lively beat with side steps, kicks, and knee lifts.

wellness event description

Self-Care Discussion is knowing that support is available when options feel diminished. The work is fact based, dissected, and molded into something that suits the individual. Each conversation is different in nature by reading, journaling, sharing, or connecting all within your comfort zone. And if you want to expand your comfort, additional support is lovingly available for you.

Reiki Circle is an opportunity to participate and share life energy, both giving and receiving. No previous Reiki experience or attunement required. Even at a distance, a comfortable environment of respect, trust and healing is possible. A monthly meeting cares for the self, others, the planet and beyond.

Reading Circle focuses on books of a personal development nature. The discussions help understand our own and another’s point of view. The circle takes different approaches as agreed upon by the group. For example, the group reads the book together, or reads and shares comments, or listens to a section then responds. Each book offers an opportunity for a different forum and approach.

Seasonal Eve Peace Imagining Work is a guided 30-minute exercise of “imagineering” a personal inner peace shared with and extended into the world.
Intend peace, imagine peace, visualize peace, own peace.

And for those wishing for personalized assistance:

Personal Instruction Experience (PIE) is now more formal as Carolyn is now certified as a Personal Fitness Trainer (PFT). Everything remains true and her service as a PFT is available in person at The Daley Workout on Grant Road in Tucson.
When there are questions about form and results or personal goals feel unobtainable, consider a personal session. Different from the group approach, this is your individual coaching to support your unique practice. PIE and PFT are especially beneficial to those new to exercise, healing an injury, recovering from a medical procedure, or simply for those determined to develop a sense of well-being to a new height. Your program designed with your needs in mind combines any of the services mentioned on this website. Contact Carolyn directly for more information.
