Prenatal clients can expect a gentle yoga class where alignment cues are given to accommodate the physical needs of a pregnant woman, as well as information regarding the benefits of each pose as it relates to pregnancy. Each week women will be provided the chance to deepen their connection with their baby through visualization exercises and meditation techniques. There will also be opportunities to explore different yoga poses and specific breathing techniques that can be useful during labor. Enjoy finding the mental and physical strength and flexibility you never knew you had alongside other expectant women!

REFINE AND ALIGN WORKSHOP

REFINE & ALIGN WORKSHOP with Kristen Nussbaum

DATE: Saturday January 20th

TIME: 1:30 – 3:30pm

COST: $25

Designed specifically for yogis who are looking to fine tune their basic alignment skills. This workshop focuses on using the body as a measure for your postures. By doing so, we allow for more effective alignment, and establish a strong foundation on the mat. We will break down and refine the asanas that make up the vinyasa, dive deeper into the full expressions of the warriors and visit how to twist properly. The goal is for you, the student, to use the knowledge you gain through proper alignment to take your personal practice to the next level.

We will go over the fundamental sequences by breaking down each pose and offering modifications to make them accessible to everyone. We will talk about the health benefits of yoga and how you can use the techniques in everyday life. We will focus on preparing you for Vinyasa flow, an energizing, flowing style of yoga. After this series you will be ready to jump into several of our other regularly scheduled classes.

Suitable for the beginner, or for those who want a refresher in form, alignment, and breath in their practice.

We strongly reccomend you attend both sessions, but you do not have to attend the first session to attend the second, both classes will cover different material about starting a yoga practice.

We look forward to helping you start your yoga journey!

REST, RESTORE & REJUVENATE

REST, RESTORE & REJUVENATE with Kate Frichtl & Annie Yoder

DATE: Friday January 26th

TIME: 6:30 – 8:00pm

COST: $25 per person

Join Kate Frichtl and Annie Yoder for an hour and a half of restorative yoga to help you find rejuvenation. We often fill every free moment we have during the day with the next thing on our to-do list. When we stop for a few moments, our mind easily races and fills with worries and stress. If we allow our physical and mental selves time to rest, not just when sleeping, it is healing and rejuvenating for our body and mind.
We will begin the evening with a few gentle movements, and then settle into intentional restorative poses, held for 4-15 minutes each. In these postures, the body and the joints are gently supported, to give your mind and body the space to find calm and rest. All props will be provided, but feel free to bring your own pillow and blanket if you would like.
Advanced signup is encouraged.

GROUP REIKI SESSION

GROUP REIKI SESSION with Carrie Brian

DATE: Saturday January 27th

TIME: 6:30 – 7:45pm

COST: $20 per person

Join Carrie for an evening of relaxation. Experience what reiki is and how much of a positive effect it can have on your mind, body and soul.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese word representing the principle of Universal Life Energy, the gentle yet powerful force that gives life, growth, balance and healing to all living things. It is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Using the distant healing method, the Reiki energy will be working regardless of where Carrie is in the room. She will continue to move through the room, pausing at each person in order to tune in to them individually to see how she can support the session further. She will also enhance the experience with meditation music, and low lighting. She will place 7 reiki infused crystals, which represent each chakra, on each client to help aid in raising vibrations. Her goal and passion is to raise the awareness in our community on the importance of Reiki and Meditation and the positive effects it has on us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. When we come from a place of balance from all four levels, we are in harmony.
Carrie Brian is a Reiki Master with the following certifications:
Komyo Reiki Do: Shoden and Chuden Degree: Certified through Yoga on High Columbus Ohio
Reiki Master Level: Certified through Institute of Holistic Health Columbus Ohio
Animal Reiki Practitioner with a focus on Equine.
