Upcoming Workshops

 

Yoga for the Neck and Shoulders w/ Tiffany
Friday November 21st, 4:00-5:30pm

In this fast-paced world of which we all know of, we tend to hold a lot of stress and tension in our neck and shoulders. This is a fact and it can cause neck and shoulder pain, headaches, and complete posture meltdown! Within this workshop, we will learn different yoga poses and stretches that will help to release that stress and tension. Releasing physical stress helps us to release mental stress, and vice versa.
Cost: $25



Yin Oasis w/ Mary
Saturday, December 6th, 10:30am-12:30 pm

HOLIDAY YIN OASIS: Find the calm in the storm.......Materialistic, frenzied and flustered is how many people view the month of December. Come, defy the norm, and find calm in the storm at our yin yoga oasis. Spend two delicious hours pampering and opening your body as we surrender into the meditative practice of yin yoga. Learn how these nourishingposes (held 3-5 min. with no standing postures) offer an opportunity to surrender, slow down, and draw inward. Give your body the gifts of : harmonizing the flow of "chi," opening the deep tissues of your pelvis/spine/hips, and slowing the fluctuations of your mind. A small gift package to encourage your at-home "calm" will be given to all attendees.
No prior yoga experience is necessary.

THESE ARE CLASSES YOU DONT WANT TO MISS
 

Peace Yoga w/ Elly-  To heal, inspire and nourish your body as well as your heart.

Tai Chi w/ Jane- Tai Chi for Adults consists of fluid, gentle movements that are slow in tempo. Over the past ten years more and more research has been done that encourages people with a wide range of medical issues such as arthritis, cardiac rehab, Parkinson, stroke rehab, high blood pressure, balance problems, and depression to practice Tai Chi. Mayo Clinic has recommended Tai Chi to improve strength, flexibility, balance, well being and overall fitness. Our class combines these traditional movements with simple, easy to learn relaxation techniques. Many students have reported better balance, significant pain relief, increased sense of well being, and improved physical ability. So, come join us and learn some new tools to manage stress and allow you to feel better.

Meditation w/ Jane- Introspection/meditation – a mix of meditation techniques designed to relax, inspire, and wind down your brain.  Recommended for beginners, experts, and everyone in between.

Empowering Vinyasa Flow Yoga w/ Sherri- Vinyasa Flow means "to place or arrange in a special way". It synchronizes the movement with the breath and as a result, the practice can become more meditative which helps to connect the mind with the body.
This class is physically invigorating and will get the heat cranked! It creates strength, flexibility and stability in the body while keeping the breath smooth and deep. Sherri ends class with a well deserved, delicious savasana incorporating her crystal bowl and essential oils for an experience like no other. You will leave feeling cleansed, strengthened, motivated and poised in your power and grace.

Gentle Yoga w/ Amanda- This class is an introduction to yoga for beginners but Amanda also welcomes the more experienced yoga practitioner who might be in the mood for something gentler. The focus is on the breath and body awareness in a series of stretches and basic poses. Variations are offered for the more advanced student.

Power Blend Yoga w/ Chris- In this class, we will be beginning with movement to properly warm up the body! We will go through a series of vinyasa flows for the first 25 min. Then on the last 25 min, we will focus on stretching and restorative poses before completing with a much deserved savasana.  You're going to feel this in the morning!

Pure Energy Yoga w/ Kristy- Pure Energy yoga offers a unique connection between the spine and core which will allow the body to "flow" in a whole new way.  Experience traditional poses with a unique twist involving waves of movement and energy infused with our deep core breath for a class experience that is challenging with out being overwhelming. Our Liquid practice gives us a unique experience to celebrate our strength, courage, and power. 
"our yoga should reflect the unique inner and outer beauty we all have to offer to ourselves and to our lives outside the studio." -Kristy

Yin Yoga w/ Mary- Yin Yoga is a meditative, restorative style of yoga used to balance a more athletic practice by focusing on the slow, patient opening of the deep connective tissue of the hips, pelvis, spine, and arms. This system of nourishing bodily postures (held 3-5 minutes with no standing postures) not only offers an opportunity to surrender and slow down, but also harmonizes the flow of Chi (energy) that is vital for our health. Yin Yoga is a practice for all levels of experience

Introduction to Yoga w/ Elly- Learn the basics of yoga, terms used and proper breathing techniques to prepare yourself for advancement to vinyasa flow yoga classes.

Hot Yoga w/ Tiffany- the practice of yoga in a heated room! A great way to warm the bones in the midest of the chilly weather

Intermediate Vinyasa Flow Yoga w/ Mary- Drink in strength and poise as we move through a series of yoga poses linked together by the breath. Vinyasa yoga synchronizes bogy, mind, and breath in a dance-like fashion. Class begins with joint and spine opening warm-ups and concludes with a deep restorative stretching, followed by a quietly healing savasana. Although this is not a beginners class it can be adapted to all levels

Introduction to Beginner Yoga- Energizing Flow w/ Elly- Join Elly for an energizing start to the weekend, whether you are going out with friends or staying in with a mug of tea. This introductory class will help set up the basics of yoga while keeping a steady, flowing pace.

Groovin' Yoga - Join Colleen for her moving, grooving yoga class
