Quiet Mind was started by Ginger Dunaway with the intention of offering clients detailed, therapeutic, neuromuscular massage for pain and stress management. The end-goal being a quiet mind in which the client finally experiences a stress-free state. Here the body is able to heal itself and the mind is opened up to unlimited focus and intuition.
Ginger also loves to share the practice of yoga in which this same end-goal is achieved. The yoga practice can be taught so that the client can practice at home and achieve this stress-free state on their own as often as is needed. Massage and yoga both help clients increase personal awareness in their bodies and minds, and reconnect to spirit.
Massage and yoga can have a powerful impact on your life and they are an integral part of general well being.

Quiet Mind’s name came from several of Patanjali’s yoga sutras which are translated as:
"Yoga is the stilling of the thought waves of the mind." and
"Then consciousness takes on its true nature."
So when we quiet the mind, and rise above the mind, our true nature is revealed.
Patanjali studied and practiced yoga in great depth and wrote these sutras, or statements, on yoga anywhere from 600 B.C. to 300 C.E.
Yogis thousands of years ago studied the art of trying to quiet the mind. They did this first through seated meditation and later through movement meditation as well.
Through quieting the mind they experienced complete oneness, the True Nature of Spirit.
