Studio news and upcoming events

Come one, come all

Let's gather amongst the grand cottonwoods at Harbert Park and share a feast!

Located on McDaniel between Crain and Greenleaf, east of the North Shore Canal, this hidden gem has a great playground and sliver of forest (where Nick leads his Thursday morning outdoor classes). Bring your kids, lawn chairs if you have them, maybe some musical instruments?

RSVP here and let us know what you can bring:


We can't wait to see you in person!

A small incentive to reignite your yoga practice

(available through August- but begin your "month" anytime)

August Events

Mac-talla is a dynamic movement practice. Drawing from eclectic somatic traditions, each session incorporates mindfulness, visualization, and rigorous physical exercise. Mac-talla invites us into resonance across material, energetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. Aerobics meets ritual. Open to all levels of fitness and imagination. Expect to sweat.

Cost: $30, members save 15%, sliding scale gladly offered

Grateful Yoga is exciting to introduce this innovative method to the community, offering a blend of cardiovascular vigor and imaginative inquiry. If there is interest, it may become a regular class in the fall.

Restorative yoga is an ideal way to relearn what once came naturally - resting and relaxing just as we are. It is a practice of conscious relaxation that cultivates profound rest through passively held, supported yoga poses.

Nestled in a supportive environment of blocks, bolsters and blankets, your body automatically begins to relax. Poses can last from 5 to 25 minutes, which allows a slow release of both physical tension and mental stress. The destination is sublime comfort and ease.

The benefits of regularly practicing restorative yoga enable us to remain calmer during stressful situations, to manage chronic pain and anxiety, and to invite a mental and physical state where healing easily emerges.

Beginners are welcome, although some familiarity with yoga or other body work is helpful.

Cost: $30
