31 DAYS with Ramsay, Linda, Ori & Diana

 DAILY YOGA, DAILY MEDITATION & A HEALTHY WHOLE FOODS DIET

SIGN UP NOW! Create healthier habits in the New Year!  For the month of January 2018, Ramsay Trussell (OTM owner & Yoga teacher), Linda Malcomb (Yoga teacher & Life Coach), Ori Kilner (Yoga and Meditation teacher) and "Real Foods" Nutritionist Diana Rodgers, a "Whole 30" certified coach, are teaming up to offer you “31 DAYS”. Step confidently into 2018 with a renewed commitment to your health and well-being!

For “31 Days”, we will empower you to shape new, healthy routines to ground you and awaken your appetite for life. If you are tired of feeling tired and need to re-focus your attention on your physical and mental health, this might be the start you seek.

For “31 Days”, we will use a daily yoga and meditation practice as well as self-coaching techniques and a “real food” diet to help guide you towards "whole-life health". “31 Days” is not about changing who you are. It is about changing some of your habits so you can awaken to your true Self.

For “31 Days”, we will create a community on-line, sharing meditation exercises, daily inspiration and discussion, as well as recipes and healthy eating tips, via a private support group on Facebook. Our community will also meet 4 times in person throughout the month.

Each week, we will explore a different topic as it relates to our life: BEING PRESENT, BALANCE, STRENGTH and GRATITUDE .

It's the practice of mindful, daily routines that creates lasting change in your life. Let us begin TOGETHER!!

SPECIAL Friday Nights with Your Favorite OTM Teachers

Each Friday night will feature a different OTM teacher.  Each class will feature a different yoga style.  The different style often reflects the passion of the teacher.  Come join us and share our passion! Fridays from 6-7:15pm. REGISTER NOW for any of these Fridays on our  SCHEDULE page.

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.

Align Your Flow with Natasha Rizopolous

Align Your Flow® is meditation in motion. It’s about using the linking of breath and movement to become completely absorbed in the present moment. It’s an approach to Vinyasa Flow that emphasizes alignment as a way to develop what the ancient Yogis called eka grata or one-pointed focus. It’s a physical practice that encourages you to be your most vital and intelligent self on the mat, disengaged from the chatter that so often distracts and defines us. It’s a way to move the body consciously and thoughtfully, so you can accurately observe the effects of your actions and therefore act more skillfully, which is both the essence and the goal of Yoga. It’s about cultivating a quality of attention in your asana practice that translates into your daily life. It’s a way to create a relationship between what you do on the mat and who you are off the mat.

REGISTER NOW for Feb. 10 from 11-1.  Space will be limited to 35 and we expect to sell out.  Sign up early!

Deep Stretch & More! Monthly Workshops with Vito Politano

Vito teaches yoga, provides Thai bodywork, studies Craniosacral Therapy and has completed Reiki 1.  He is grateful and inspired to share these powerful healing practices in his teaching. Not born a yogi, it took a neck injury to lead Vito to the mat in 2004.  With a debilitating fear of public speaking, Vito began teaching with great trepidation in 2007 while working in nonprofit management, and serving as a Baptiste Yoga assistant.  The opportunity to share the benefits of these practices inspired him to take the leap into teaching.

Vito teaches mindful and challenging alignment-based classes with a strong connection to breath. He also teaches “Deep Stretch Therapy” classes incorporating myofascial release using massage balls.  Fusing active and resistant stretching and ball rolling, along with more passive yin and restorative holds to get deep into muscles and fascia. This is a great opportunity for athletes, as well as all those who simply need a good stretch, to release tension and stress while building flexibility. Special attention will be paid to the neck and shoulders, hamstrings, hips, quads and lower back. The benefit of this work will be to relieve tension created from workout endeavors as well as time spent sitting behind a desk. Yogis, runners, skiers, cyclers, bootcampers, and barre practitioners will all benefit greatly from this important investment. His care and attention to safety and therapeutics enable students to open body, heart and mind in a deep and sustainable way.

Strongly committed to self-development, Vito informs his practice through regular study and training of Yoga, philosophy, anatomy, physiology and bodywork. He incorporates all of his studies into his teaching. Vito was named lululemon Ambassador for the Boston Prudential store in 2012.  For more information: vitoyoga.com

Flower Yoga for Children with Tara Rachel Jones

Children are born in a state of yoga (union). However, in this culture, many children are moving at a much faster pace than they are naturally developing. This inevitably puts stress on their young bodies and spirits. A yoga practice gives them the opportunity to slow down, reconnect and establish their inner rhythm, thus balancing their energy. The self-motivation and independence that blossoms through their yoga practice expresses itself in other areas of their lives. Come and join the Joy and Play!

When: September 21- December 7 (sign up on our SCHEDULE page)
