Chiara continues to teach throughout this time of accommodations, physical distancing and focusing on the health of ourselves and our community. As things change in the environment, so do Chiara’s offerings.
Taste of Somat
Take an hour to nurture your whole self during this ongoing Somat class. Chiara leads breath and movement sequences designed to calm your nervous system, relax your muscles and decompresses your spine. The sequences are slow, organic and fluid, focusing on the spine and the rhythm of the breath. Effects include a settling of parasympathetic responses and easing of stress, as well as alleviation of neck, spine and hip complaints.

Focusing on the Core
Chiara teaches you to focus on the core – the deepest musculature of the body’s center – and the breath. A stabilized core better supports our joints and helps to relax the outer layers – so often tense and rigid – and the breath, which clarifies and enlivens our experience in the body. By cultivating awareness in this way, you will connect to a deeper place within yourself, resulting in strength and grace. Chiara’s classes are readily accessible to anyone with a basic background in yoga, and an interest in strengthening the core.
Chiara also has a strong interest in injury evaluation and treatment, and welcomes students recovering from injury or other physical pain. Chiara adapts movement so that all students can participate and develop the support their bodies need to recover. Her instruction is lively, accessible, encouraging and compassionate, working with each student to create a safe, strong practice.
