About Terri Brown, L.Ac.

I came to the practice of Chinese Medicine as a result of a life-long desire to become a health care provider, coupled with an equally long search for a comprehensive healing system that would incorporate the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of the body. My undergraduate science education led me to understand that Western medicine, although incredibly advanced in some areas, lacked an understanding of how the physical component of the body integrated with the other elements of being human.  I discovered acupuncture at the Bastyr Clinic in Seattle, Washington in 1996, and it was love at first sight.  I earned a Masters of Science degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in New York, where I studied acupuncture, herbology, Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Tui Na (Chinese massage).

I believe that Chinese Medicine is highly effective and practical. I treat women, men, and children with a wide range of conditions at Stillpoint Community Acupuncture in Parsippany.

Slow Flow with Loretta Turner

Wednesdays in May from 7:30-9p

May 4, 11, 18 and 25

Price: $75 for all 4 weeks

Slow Flow is a beautiful blend of vinyasa and stillness. It explores asana through flowing movement and breath, while slowing things down so each pose and transition can be truly felt and absorbed. In this 4-week series, Loretta Turner will guide you through a 90-minute slow flow experience, each session ending with gentle and restorative poses. Restorative poses involve the use of props to help the body feel totally supported and relaxed. Each week will explore a different part of the body (hips & lower body, twists, shoulders & upper body, and backbends). Open to all levels.

Loretta Turner

Loretta found yoga in 2009 through the Ramapo College of New Jersey yoga club. She was immediately drawn to the asana that was so closely tied to her roots in dancing. Through Ramapo College’s yoga community Loretta was able to commit herself to a weekly yoga practice, and eventually received her certification from the college’s yoga teacher program in April 2011.

She enjoys teaching an open-level vinyasa flow that is often times described as creative and fluid, but deceivingly challenging. Loretta also teaches to a wide range of vulnerable populations including, but not limited to, cancer patients, Aspergers, at-risk youth, and addiction recovery through Kula for Karma.

Core Lab and Inversions

with Phillip Askew

Sunday, April 10th


$45 pre-registration  $55 at the door



In this mindful yet intensive Core Labs workshop learn highly translatable movement skills through exercises of stabilization, joint differentiation, proper breathing, control, and neuromuscular re­patterning. There is an art and a science involved­ we’ll be doing no crunches or hip­flexor pumping. Rather, we’ll emphasize efficiency of movement while operating in full ranges of motion in a variety of exercises each with a specific intention within the core complex.

Many contemporary yogis the world over are supplementing their Yoga practice with core conditioning. Personally, my backbends have never felt so integrated, my hip­openers have never felt so juicy, my inversions have never felt as “locked in” as they have since I’ve incorporated these exercises taught to me by my Pilates teacher, Teri Steele.

Many yoga practitioners struggle with the elusive inversion practice. Most often, the chief obstacles are mental. We have a natural aversion to inversion. There are many practical tools which, when mastered, will give you a solid footing in the sky. In this workshop, we will employ our core lab techniques and exercises to help you bridge the gap leading to a stable inversion practice.

This class produces a strong, long­lasting endorphin buzz and is a perfect compliment to a serious Yoga practice.

Phillip Askew

I came to Yoga no stranger to the joys of physicality. But my body was a wreck from sports that I played growing up. I was tremendously inflexible with ailments in my neck and back. For me, at the time, the simplest postures were- not only deeply therapeutic- but poignant vehicles for psychic transformation. It was this effect on my conscious mind that hooked me into the practice. I spent years in home practice before ever coming to class, thinking that my experience was too personal to share in a group setting. But, when I took my first Vinyasa class, in a room full of people, all practicing with one intention, all stoking the same fire, I fell in love with Vinyasa; and pursued it through various avenues over the years, searching out the various through-lines and common threads from one school to the next, & embracing the lifestyle of the Contemporary Yoga Movement. I teach today from that space between, in an attempt to convey the love story between form and flow, dancer and witness, devotion and integrity, Sun and Moon. I look forward to our practice together!
