Yoga just for you:
Yoga: Each of our excellent teachers brings her own style to class, and all are gifted at making yoga accessible for beginners and engaging for the more experienced. Classes are fun, challenging, nurturing and un-pretentious. Some classes tend to be more gentle, while others are more energizing - if you would like help figuring out which teacher might be a good fit for your needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 519-588-8432.
Prenatal: Yoga in pregnancy is a wonderful tool to adapt to the challenges of your ever-changing body, release tension and build strength in preparation for birth and parenting. It also helps you connect with your breath and your instincts in a way that is totally relevant to birth (and life!)
Rocket Yoga gives us an opportunity to explore our yoga practice and be adventurous, challenging our personal limits in a safe and intelligent way. It is a fast paced, dynamic class all about finding focus and concentration as we listen to our inner teacher. Megan is great at offering options so you can work harder or adapt to suit your own body. The Rocket sequences are 90 minutes, so she draws out different elements to focus on each week in this 1 hour class. Rocket A on Thursday evenings has more of a forward fold focus and Rocket B on Sunday afternoons helps create openness through the front of the body. On the last Sunday of the month we’ll do a special 90 minute class so you can enjoy the full sequence.
Friday Flow: A great way to end your week and start your weekend off right. A fun and high energy music playlist will guide you through this one hour flow, and your energy will likely follow suit. Move at your own pace and options will be offered to make this class as challenging or laid back as you choose. Come prepared to have fun.
Flow & Slow: Whether you only have enough time to hit one class this week or you just like a little variety, Flow & Slow is the class for you. This class is split in half to get you warmed up with an active practice to start and wind down with some nice juicy restorative poses to end.
Gentle Yoga: Join Megan Prenty for a gentle hatha class, incorporating breath work and exploring movement at a Sunday morning kind of pace.
Restorative: Let go of tension and hit your body's reset button, in this slow, quiet and nurturing practice. Each pose is fully supported with blankets, bolsters and blocks and then held for 5-15 minutes. Relax, rest and begin to find a meditative state as the supportive stretches help stress melt away and create balance both physically and mentally.
Restorative Flow: A gentle flow with a series of feel good postures leading up to our peak poses: restorative postures! The flow will be at a slower pace to help prepare the body and mind to rest for a longer duration in the fully supported restorative poses toward the end of class. We will focus on pranayama breathing techniques and meditation to help alleviate stress and bring more peace into your life.
Pilates: Our habitual posture and movements can be the very crux of our ability to enjoy life to the fullest. Learn alignment-based exercises that are fundamental to everyday movements. Build deep core strength that provides the building blocks for strong postural support and get to the root cause of your pain or restriction. Learn tools to re-train your body to move the way it is meant to, naturally.
Yoga for you (with your little one):
Mom & Baby Yoga: This class is for you, mama. Ease the aches and build strength to rise to the new challenges of caring for this little baby. Designed to nurture and energize you from around 6 weeks postpartum until your baby is crawling all over the place (in which case, you should come to Moms & Movers instead!) Never done a yoga class? There's a first time for everything.
Mom & Baby Pilates: This class will help you connect to your postpartum body, learning to move with greater stability, mobility and alignment. Stretch and strengthen. Re-train your core. Many of the exercises can be adapted to include your baby. Do something for yourself, while meeting the needs of your little one in a supportive community of other mamas. (Appropriate for babies 6-weeks old until super mobile and all over the room.)
Moms & Movers: The best kind of chaos - nurture yourself with a safe and challenging yoga practice while the kids crawl and toddle around us. You may get climbed on or under, but you will leave class feeling better than when you started. Dads are welcome too!! (Are you having to spend too much of your Mom & Baby class chasing your suddenly mobile little one before they poke that newborn baby in the face? Graduate to Moms & Movers, where all the babies are in the same crazy boat.)
Movers & Groovers: This class is all about the playlist! A fun and interactive movement class that is the perfect blend of kitchen dance party, fitness class and yoga flow that will leave both you and your little one ready for snuggles and nap time with a smile on your face. Moms will get a great workout while tots explore movement in their bodies! This class is ideal for little ones ranging 9-24 months, who are ready for movement and love music!
Mavens for Mama: Join Mavens for Mama the FIRST THURSDAY of each month to talk all things Mama. Mavens for Mama founder Jessika Marie, WMN's WRK facilitator, health coach and mother of three will create a space for reflection, mentoring, education and candid conversation. We will navigate the complexities and the opportunities for healing and growth that are available to us through our motherhood journey. We need our TRIBE more than ever for support and of course a good belly laugh now and then! Moms of all stages welcome! Babies welcome!
Yoga for the whole family:
Family Yoga: Yoga is a Sanskrit word that means "union". All yoga classes have the foundation of union in them but none quite like a family class. Strengthen, build and nurture your special connection with family members by participating in this dynamic class. This playful class is geared toward children and their family members and incorporates movement, yoga postures, games, partner poses and time to connect with each other through mindfulness activities. Only one class pass is used per family.
Tots Yoga: This fun, silly and soothing drop-in class introduces yoga and mindfulness in a playful way. Expect to roar like a lion, wag your doggy tail, laugh in a partner pose, and move your body in fun and challenging ways! We will use yoga poses and creative movement to go on adventures, and we'll learn strategies to calm our bodies and minds. This is a parent (or grandparent/caregiver) participating class.
Our next round of kids only & teen classes in will start in the Spring. Email Thea if you're interested in finding out the details or have input about scheduling.
