In addition to the regular schedule, new classes have been added on (schedule on flyer above):

Lexi and Nora are recent graduates of Todd Norian’s Ashaya Yoga 200-Hr Teacher Training that took place at the Old Stone Church in Essex. They are delighted to be joining the studio and they look forward to sharing their passion for yoga!
Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning classes with Michael offer opportunities for spaciousness and thoughtful focus. Early-morning classes offer a warming, gentle start to the day, and mid-morning classes add a bit more depth, so poses can be refined and explored more thoroughly thanks to Michael’s extensive teaching experience. His ability to combine various styles of yoga allows for a unique sequence that evolves throughout each class, as space and stability are developed.
Susan will continue leading her popular Monday evening class that is both centering and energizing. Breathing techniques begin the class and proper alignment remains the focus as she guides postures that strengthen and balance the body. Her knowledge of poses gives students options to challenge themselves or simply to modify poses in order to expand their practice more gradually.
On Tuesdays, Karin’s evening class combines many elements, from Vinyasa to Yin, that help students invigorate their practice and also unwind. This class concentrates on following the breath, whether using poses to build strength or to soften the body.
Her “Chill” classes on Thursdays are excellent for those new to yoga or who would like a slower pace. Expect a calming and healing experience that gently rejuvenates.
Lexi’s “Rise and Shine” classes on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings offer an hour-long awakening of the body and inner self. Through guided breath work and posture development, each class takes students on a journey of early-morning spaciousness and radiance. Wednesday evening class brings students into a space of creativity and gratitude as they refine postures and find ease thanks to Lexi’s heartfelt and precise teachings.
Friday morning class with Nora brings a bright and mindful focus to the practice, as she offers a dynamic approach to sequences that inspire dedication and self-compassion. With emphasis on engagement and alignment, the class will allow students to explore their own freedom and growth as they stretch and strengthen their bodies.
