Rest

"Guard your balance as you would your most precious resource." - Deborah Adele

Life is crazy, busy, hectic, stressful— even when it's going perfectly, there's still a lot your carry on your plate.

So it's time. Time to wind down and turn inward to give the still space within the attention it's been longing for. This is the rejuvenation you crave and never quite schedule. Expect stillness, soft movement and soothing mental focus. This class is peace. It’s comfort. It’s...rest. 

When: Sunday October 22nd
Time: 5:30 - 7:00p
Cost: $20 Registration*

Kids Fun & Flow (Wednesdays)

One thing we hear our students say is, "I wish I would've started sooner. I can't imagine what my life would be like if I started practicing when I was young."

It is common to feel stress EVERY day. It has become an ingrained part of our culture that it's even difficult to notice it in ourselves. Children are experiencing the demands as well, yet we struggle to offer them the tools to cope.

Yoga is gaining attention as a tool for stress management, for both adults and children. It has been proven to assist with developing focus and self-regulation skills. It also provides a way to improve their self-esteem by bringing attention to the body through self-awareness. If you're anything like us, these concepts didn't dawn on us until our mid-to-late 20's or later and we're still working on them.

So what would it be like to start young?
