Dec 01, 2015 07:17AM
Shangri-La Yoga Studio, in Quarryville, owned by Christine Kortze, is expanding to include more healing, fitness and fun modalities. Creative Zen Drawing, a meditative art class, will be held from 1:30 to 3 p.m., December 13. Taught by a highly-skilled Zen drawing master in a serene environment surrounded by meditative music, participants will tap into their creative side while discovering peace.
Two other programs, Nia and Trauma Healing, will begin in January. Nia is a fusion of martial arts, dance, yoga and movement therapy, which has nine different disciplines to give students a low-to-no impact workout, encouraging peace of mind and body. Complimentary mini-sessions by donation will be offered in December. Kortze is partnering with Change Your Mind Biofeedback to create Trauma Healing, individual programs for people dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety.
Kortze, a registered yoga teacher who has taught yoga arts for 10 years, also has a Bachelor of Arts degree in clinical psychology and is a licensed Nia teacher. She opened Shangri-La in August 2014, as a unique, full body, mind and spirit healing experience. The friendly, whimsical studio atmosphere builds a community of support, and the yoga classes are empowering, healing and full of compassion.
