New Students

Introduction to Yoga 3 Week Series begins Saturday, August 12th

Highly recommended for anyone who is beginning yoga…

Our Yoga Basics Workshop is perfect for students new to yoga or those wishing to gain more confidence in their postures. In a relaxed, supportive environment, you’ll learn basic yoga postures through an easy-does-it, step-by-step approach which focuses on proper form and alignment. These special yoga poses help to stretch, strengthen, and release tension in your body while developing concentration and awareness.

Detailed instructions (including modifications for all needs/abilities), demonstrations, and personal hands-on adjustments are provided. We’ll go slowly so you can ask questions which will help you develop good habits from the start. Breathing and meditation techniques are also taught to help reduce stress by quieting and focusing the mind (can be used on or off the mat). The session will end with guided relaxation as your body quietly absorbs the benefits of the practice.

No previous yoga experience is necessary! Classes meet for three (3) consecutive weeks beginning Saturday, August 12th – August 26th from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM.  Cost is $75.00 plus 15% off any package purchased during the series. Missed sessions will not be pro-rated and there are no refunds or transfers.  Sign up online as this fills up quickly and space is limited.

Please fill out the registration form prior to class and bring it with you to the first session.

Barre Basics Workshop

Saturday, September 9th!

11:00 AM- 12:00 PM

We will be holding a Barre Basic class for anyone who has been curious about Barre but didn’t know where to start. We will go over alignment and different ballet moves that are incorporated into barre classes. This will be a 90 minute session as there will be more explanation and time to ask questions. We realize starting something new can be intimidating so this is the perfect place to begin. The class will primarily be run like a regular barre class so you will know what to expect in the future. Cost for this workshop is $20.00. Barre space is limited so please sign up in advance.

Used extensively in ballet training and warm up exercises, barre work is an excellent workout in itself. You don’t have to be a ballet dancer to do barre work, but it can help improve flexibility and strength in individuals looking for an alternative workout. In fact, you might be surprised with just how much of a workout it actually is, despite how easy it may appear.

Here are the Top 10 Benefits of Barre:

  • Makes you stronger: The isometric contractions that make up the bulk of a barre class occur when the muscle tenses without changing length. What’s wonderful about the one-inch movements is that you can hold a posture and benefit from continuously engaging the muscle, but you also get a mini-recovery with each pulse, so you can stay in the hold longer.
  • Targets multiple muscle groups at once: It’s a highly efficient workout since you’re doing two to four movements—holding, pulsing, stretching—at a time in each move. Working all these areas at once also helps raise the heart rate.
  • Improves mind and body concentration: The smaller movements in a barre class can bring a new level of awareness to the body that you don’t get in regular strength workouts. Barre can improve muscular activation for frequently underused muscles by strengthening the neuromuscular (mind-body) connection.
  • Increases endurance: The constant strength training also helps with increasing your heart rate and endurance. The small movements are done fast-paced style, with short breaks here and there to catch your breath.
  • It’s fun and upbeat: Because its incorporated with dance, barre is a fun and exciting way to way workout. The atmosphere will make the workout enjoyable, so you’ll want to keep coming back for more!
  • Weight loss: The barre targets the largest muscle groups in the body (like the thighs and glutes). The larger the muscle, the more calories burned. As you continue, you will begin to build more lean muscle mass, raising your metabolic rate, which can help you produce more energy and burn more calories.
  • Core strength: The beauty of the barre is that you engage your core the entire time – so even if you are working the arms or thighs, you are always engaging, and therefore strengthening, the core as well. A strong core can increase your performance in all other activities in your life, whether you’re playing tennis or just lifting your children.
  • Reduces cellulite: Aerobic activity is a key factor in getting rid of cellulite! Barre exercises are fat blasting; it focuses on the lower body and designed to help you drop pounds. If you want to fit into your skinny jeans, have killer legs and a great looking butt, or you just want to go from a good shape to a better one, barre is for you!
  • Improves flexibility: Ballet stretches are a major part of the session done at the end of each interval, so the muscles are elongated, bulk is reduced and therefore balance and alignment are achieved.
  • Increases bone health: The more you practice barre, your muscles get stronger. The constant tension and resistance placed on the muscles has an effect on bones that makes them stronger, which is key to warding off osteoporosis with age.

Private Sessions

Why Private Yoga Instruction?

While yoga classes are an effective way of learning and practicing, we believe that there are times when a student needs can best be served in a one-on-one relationship with a teacher. We focus on special interests such as specific physical areas, certain asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing techniques), and relaxation or meditation practice to develop a greater understanding of yoga. Private yoga allows time to assist in adjustments, understanding injuries and taking time to use restorative props. Each private session is entirely tailored to the individual needs of the student. The instructor works with you to create a practice suitable for where you are now.

Benefits of Private Instruction

  • Deepening your understanding of the practice itself
  • Healing from an injury
  • Overcoming health issues
  • Using your practice in a therapeutic way
  • Working on your practice in a private space with one-on-one attention
  • Taking one or two sessions as an introduction to Yoga
  • Tailoring your practice to your specific sport
  • Focusing on meditation

Cost:  $75.00 an hour

Semi-privates are offered for an additional $15.00 per person.

Packages can be arranged for multiple sessions.

Class Etiquette

Minimum age for group classes is 14: To provide the best instruction for everyone in the class, we ask group classes be attended by ages 14 and up.

Please bring your own mat:  We do not provide mats. However, we rent them out for $1.00 per usage if you forget yours.

Come to class on time:  Try to get to class ten minutes before class starts. Late arrivals may not be able to attend class.

Don’t eat right before class: It’s okay to have something light before class (an hour before your practice) but generally you want to let the stomach digest before coming to a yoga class.

Don’t chew gum:  Many yoga poses require inversions (the head being below the heart) and if you are chewing gum the risk of choking is increased.

Please stay until class is over:  While it is hard to convince some yoga students that the meditative portion of class at the end is the most important, try not to leave during meditation.

Remove shoes and socks:  Please place your shoes at the area designated for shoes and/or coats. No shoes are allowed on either studio floor.

Leave all electronic devices in the lobby and turned on silent:  If you must bring your cell phone or any electronic equipment into the yoga studio, make sure it is off or that all settings are on silent. It is very distracting for other students to hear the beep, ring or vibrate of a cell phone in the middle of yoga practice.

Please do not talk when class begins:  Once the instructor starts class, refrain from talking to your friends and classmates.

Follow the instructor:  The reason to partake in a yoga class is to follow the instructions of the instructor. It is better to sit still and skip certain moves if you do not or cannot do them than to do your own thing in the middle of class. This can be confusing for both the instructor and the other students.

Please do not wear perfume:  Because classes involve breath work and deep breathing, it is considerate to not wear excessive perfumes, colognes or even essential oils, or none at all. During yoga practice nobody wants to breathe in a medley of perfumes or colognes.

Relax and enjoy…
