November is Bring a New Friend Free Month

Bring a New Friend Free all month!
 

Here's how it works: 
Bring a friend with you who's never been to the studio before to any regular class in the month of November (workshops not included).

They fill out a "New Friend" coupon at the front desk with their name on it, and there's a line for "who brought you" - that's where YOUR name goes.

They come to class for free and you get your name entered into a raffle for a chance to win a free 6 pack of classes!  The more friends you bring, the more chances you'll get.  (Raffle drawing in December)

Multiple friends per class are more than welcome (one time per new friend).

Once your friend comes, THEY can bring new friends, too, and get THEIR name entered into the raffle.

We can't wait to meet your friends!
Please be mindful that if your friend has never done yoga before, your best bet is to invite them to a beginner class (especially if you want them to speak to you again).

Yoga 201: More Than Just Poses

Yoga 201: More Than Just Poses

With Kessiah Carlbon

Have you ever been stumped by the question, What does yoga do for you?  Maybe you’re flooded with a rush of different ideas you can’t quite describe. Understandable! There’s a lot to it and sometimes it’s hard to verbalize on the spot. Let’s dig into that!

Most of us get into yoga through the poses, and after a while we begin to learn how much more is connected to moving our bodies.

First Module: Alignment, Anatomy, and Physiology

Wait, you mean you can calm my anxiety just by how I move my body?  From joint pain, muscle tension, old injuries, all the way to anxiety, depression, and sleep issues, the way we move and use our bodies can be an amazing tool for feeling more vibrant and alive.

Second Module: History, Philosophy, and Mythology

Whoa, who knew this same stuff was going on way back when!  Explore a couple of different philosophical viewpoints that might help you understand the world and your place in it in a new light. Get mesmerized by ancient stories of poignant and sometimes humorously relatable struggles that we can all see mirrored in our own modern lives today.

Third Module: Ayurveda and Subtle Body Practices: Pranayama and Meditation

Its not a one-size-fits-all practice.  Learn the subtleties of what makes you tick, how to decode your own personal constitution, and how to customize what you know into powerful habits that form a beautiful, effective personal practice.

Three long weekends. Cumulative material. Immeasurable shifts await you.

 Dates:

April 27, 29, 30  
May 18, 20, 21
June 15, 17, 18

Hours:

Thursdays 7:30-9:30 pm
Saturdays & Sundays 1:00-6:00 pm

Cost:

Earlybird: $625 in full by April 14th  
Regular: $675 in full by April 21st
Payment Plan: $350 by April 21st plus $200 by May 11th plus $200 by June 8th
