Yoga for Healing, Health, & Happiness: All-levels

Fridays 12:00 - 1:15 pm 


What makes you sick/injured or helps you heal is the combined interaction of the physical body (including all the systems), your emotional well-being, and your mental health.  This class will be a study of how to utilize yoga asanas to address common conditions and yoga philosophy for emotional health and happiness.  Each class will address a unique theme.  Bring your questions and be ready to dig deeper for the answers. This is a truly all-levels class, everyone will be met where they are and encouraged to dig deeper, the only requirement is you must not judge yourself in comparison to others.  “Always start with a beginner’s mind” – BKS Iyengar.

Three generations of women

Yoga for Women

Saturday's - quarterly, In-person and virtual.  

A woman’s life is characterized by cycles and stages of life.  This quarterly class is a gathering of women commonly on the path of yoga in the spirit of research and sharing wisdom, led by Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher (CIYT) Level II, Joy Wasson.  We practice together in a way that honors and celebrates life and an ever-changing and maturing body, mind, and spirit. 

These 2 hour classes are $25 in-person, $20 virtual, and are structured like mini workshops where we will study, practice, and discuss. The practice of asana will be 1 hour 15 minutes. An introduction to the anatomy of focus and/or class theme will be given at the beginning and time afterwards for observations, discussion, questions.  In this series we will learn ways to work with, rather than against, the natural rhythms of the body.  For this reason, poses are offered for both higher and lower energy levels.  

The next in-studio host is Blue Yoga Nyla, thank you Blue for hosting the second class in this series March 19, 2022 @ 12 pm.  If you would like to attend this class in-person, please register through Mindbody.

Virtual students can reserve their spot through this link.  Following registration, you will be emailed a link for the class and options for payment. 


Virtual students will need the following props at home to attend: 3-4 blankets, 2 blocks, 2 straps, a chair, and access to a wall and/or long dining table.  Prop kits are available for purchase for $75 @ here. (Local delivery only)

Programs are outlined with the goals of the group in mind.  Example programs developed have been yoga for Crossfit gyms, youth or adult sports teams, company wellness and/or training programs, and drug rehabilitation programs.  Example areas of focus include addressing common injuries/ailments in sports, introduction to mindfulness and meditation, and/or practices suited for emotional stability and healing.

A great option for those who might not feel comfortable starting in a class environment.  Private sessions can introduce you to basic yoga poses and how to use yoga props in a one on one setting. Similarly, this is a good option for those with acute or chronic injuries, ailments, or disease to learn what yoga sequences are suited for those conditions. All props and equipment are provided as well as a free 30 minute consult prior to the session.  Private sessions for two are also available.
