Kundalini Yoga: The Yoga of Awareness
Tuesday @ 5:30 pm with Karen Simcik ERYT 500

Kundalini yoga is a dynamic, creative and energizing form of yoga. It is especially suited to the needs of busy people who want to stay calm, bright, and centered in a high-energy world. This deep and profound practice is a sacred science, known as the Yoga of Awareness, which focuses on physical exercises, breathing, meditation, mantra and relaxation. Perfect for anyone looking to get a deeper understanding of his or her mind, body and spirit, and, therefore, lead a more happy, prosperous and fuller life.

This class is perfect for beginners and advanced students alike.


Candlelight Slow Flow Yoga, Wine and Chocolate
Friday, December 23 @ 5:30 pm

Enjoy a calming and restorative flowing yoga class with Kathleen Kelly. Unwind your body and settle your mind for the weekend ahead. This class is designed to melt the stress and tension out of your body, and hit the reset button of your mind to help you enjoy your weekend. Meditative gong session will end the class. Yummy chocolate and a lovely glass of wine will follow the event. Non-alcoholic beverages and tea will be available. All are welcome. I look forward to seeing you all soon. Regular class fee $10. WALK-INS WELCOME!


Yin Yoga Class
Saturday, December 24 @ 11 am

Yin yoga opens up the deep, dense, rarely touched tissue areas of the body. Years of dedicated asana practice will make anyone healthier, stronger and more flexible, but at some point the muscles will have reached their limit of flexibility. New depths of postures, deeper ranges of motion, or increased flow of energy may only be achievable by focusing on the deeper tissues of the body. Yin yoga is the perfect complement and balance to more active yang practices, and stands as a practice all by itself. Postures are held for longer periods of time, and repeated for maximum effect.
Fee $10 drop in or class card.
