Friday, January 5th~ "Pure Power" with Sarah Wieland. Join Sarah for a hot power yoga class. All levels welcome but some yoga experience is ideal. Sarah will lead you through a fluid, old-fashioned power flow linking movement to breath. Expect twists, lunges, heart openers and a few balancing postures. Vinyasa power yoga class isolates and lengthens the major muscle groups, detoxifies, and exhilarates the body and mind creating a calm but determined intention.
Friday, January 12th~ "Restorative Yoga & Energy Exploration" with Linda Malcomb. Did you know that we have 100,00x more living organisms inside us than people on the earth? That 90% of our inner body is a biome of microbial life that science is just beginning to explore? That we have a “second brain” in the gut that may influence our mood in dramatic ways? Using bolsters, props and the wall, we will explore relaxing postures where we can deepen our awareness to the inner mysteries of that magnificent community of the inner landscape and create a new relationship of gratitude and appreciation for this amazing biosphere.
Friday, January 19th~ "Restorative Yoga: Return to Innocence" with Linda Malcomb.
Using guided visualization and imagination we will re-member our innocent Being before the layers of wounding, shame, disappointment, responsibility and socialization. From this place of wide openness we will gently explore supported restorative shapes and movements with the intention of play, light heartedness and fun!
Friday, January 26~ "Yin Yoga with Deep Relaxation" with Liz Gawel. By moving slowly through our yoga practice, we can be careful and deliberate in how we place ourselves. Join Liz for an evening of yoga that will include longer holds focused on range of motion in the hips and torso. The practice will be focused around a series of yin yoga poses that will get deep into your muscles, joints and connective tissues. You will leave feeling warmed, relaxed and rejuvenated!
Friday, February 2nd~ "Yoga Burn" with Juli Cabot. Expect to sweat. This dynamic yoga flow class will include a lot of CORE as well as CARDIO, a fun soundtrack & more! some yoga experience is recommended
Friday, February 9th~ "Restorative Yoga" with Linda Malcomb. Linda returns for 75 minutes of bliss. Using bolsters, props and the wall, we will explore relaxing postures where we can deepen our awareness to the inner mysteries within us and cultivate gratitude and appreciation for our own body and mind.
Friday, February 16th~ "Candlelight Restore and Renew" with Loren Winters. Open your heart on a cold winter's night for a restorative candlelight very slow flow with Loren. Bring a friend or spouse, or make it a Mom's night out. Part of the proceeds will benefit DIAS a local organization that helps to provide housing and support to refugees and asylum seekers in our area.
Friday, February 23rd~ NO CLASS
Friday, March 2nd~ "Yin Yoga" with Amy Barber. A great quote by Bernie Clark, "Our goal is not to become perfect, our goal is to become Whole". and that is Yin Yoga...It is the yoga practice of finding balance in a very Yang world and lifestyle. Yin is the opposite of our Yang lifestyle but extremely complimentary. The perfect compliment to your body. In Yin yoga, you are asked to relax in the posture, soften the muscle and move closer to the bones while accessing the deeper connective tissue and fascia. You will be guided through meditation and energy work along the way. Many of the postures focus on an area that encompass a joint (hip and sacral). We will explore some standing, but mostly floor poses held in stillness. Allowing these passive, long holds to strengthen and hydrate joint tissue.
Friday, March 9th~ "The Wall" with Vicki Evarts. Vicki will use the wall to strengthen and lengthen you! This is a strong, powerful class. We think the wall will make things easier, and although it helps us balance, it brings more power into every pose. Expect to sweat and expect the option to get upside down. Some yoga experience is encouraged.
