2019 Classes & Workshops at Hooper Studios & Lifestyles

Energy Balancer Class Oct. 1 – Nov 26, Tues eve, 9 wks  6:30 to 7:30, with Sue Hooper $95.

to be held at Lifestyles Wellness Center, Hampton. This evening Energy Wellness class will focus on ways to increase vitality, relieve stress and balance our energies. We will weave the Daily Energy Routine into the class and learn to trace our energy pathways, the meridians. This class is suitable for teens and adults of all fitness levels. Everyone can learn these techniques. Dress as for yoga and bring a mat, pillow & blanket.

A little extra info on our Energy Pathways! Meridians affect every organ and physiological system in the body: the immune, nervous, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, sketetal, muscular and lymphatic systems. Each system is fed by at least one meridian. Because your meridians, like your hands, carry electromagnetic and more subtle energies, you can influence their flow by tracing them. Tracing your meridians is one of the simplest and most effective ways you can keep the “energy highways” open, remove stagnant energy and bring in a fresh energy supply thereby keeping you healthier and feeling good.

at Hooper Studios.   Bring all kinds of bits and pieces you may have in drawers and boxes, things you have collected and never done anything with and I will provide the wooden backgrounds to attach them to and all the glues and grouts you will need. I also have lots of mosaic and small tiles if you don’t bring enough for your idea or want to use them. So the first morning will be designing your mosaics and arranging them on the boards and when you are happy with them, glueing them down, this will take the rest of the day and the glue needs to set and harden overnight. The next day will be cleaning them up and grouting them which is very important and can take time with again a clean up afterwards.  Bring your lunch and I will provide tea coffee and drinks and cookies!!
