The studio holds unique workshops and events. Hopefully you can experience something new that will enrich your life. I am always looking for ways to help people connect with themselves in novel ways: either through art, breathe or meditation. These events are also meant to be enjoyable!

Chair Yoga

This is a great group of people who come together on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30. It is a very gentle class to get you moving and the teacher is very cautious of peoples prior injuries. This program is run because of support from your co-op membership.

 

All classes are offered to ijourney or Leap to Confidence graduates for $5. We strongly encourage yoga as a coping mechanism to heal trauma. Erin and Robert (2 of our wonderful teachers) started the non-profit Ijourney as a way for Veterans to deal with their PTSD without the use of medication. I am a graduate of Leap to Confidence. It is a program designed for women to feel like themselves again after leaving abusive relationships or dealing with other uncomfortable life circumstances.  For more information on Leap to Confidence or Ijourney click on these links. I am so happy to be able to support these organizations.
