Stillness + Movement is a virtual yoga studio created and held by Francesca Cervero. We are inspired by the depth and complexity of the wisdom traditions of yoga and Buddhism and aim to honor yoga’s roots in all our teaching. Ahimsa, awareness and waking up to the world as it is are the foundations of our teaching. We hope these three principles are evident in all our classes and we intend for these teachings of yoga to come through in the way we actually teach movement.
We weave together mindful vinyasa flow and Buddhist teachings because we love the way sustained movement and deep presence complement each other. We combine awareness, breath, and vinyasa with somatic practices and functional strength training to fill the movement gaps left in the way asana is often practiced in the west. Our active classes are physically challenging, especially because we bring in functional, nutritious movement that isn’t found in many yoga classes. We recognize that many people love yoga for it’s physical benefits (we do too!) and feel that the best way we can honor that is to teach well-rounded, balancing (and fun!) movement classes.
Classes are taught in specific levels, so every class is not appropriate for every person, but we're working on building a schedule that has something appropriate for all levels of ability and experience.
