Creative practices like art or writing can help to shift our mind, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.

Common feelings, like fear and anxiety, can dictate our emotions and our behaviors. Fear and anxiety are attempts to get our attention so that we can deal with issues, heal, grow, and move forward in life. The longer we avoid their nudging, the louder and messier they can become. Learning about fear and anxiety, and why we respond the way we do, can help us put into context what we may be experiencing with COVID-19 or what we have experienced in the past. Art journaling is actually a great way to understand and mitigate these things!

Each class will provide time for discussion and strategies for coping. Then it's time for some creative fun with art or writing! Gentle and easy prompts and directives will be provided to help nudge you along. Individuals may choose to participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.

A list of suggested supplies will be provided upon confirmation.

Start your day off feeling great, as you challenge your entire body! This fitness class will alternate between technique-based workouts and H.I.I.T (high intensity interval training). The technique-based circuit workout will focus on correct form, as you learn how to properly perform compound exercises such as squats, push ups and lunges.

All classes offer exercise options and variations for all fitness levels. 

Participants will need a light to heavy resistance band and a set of gliders (can substitute with paper plates or a small towel). Yoga mats can be used but are not necessary during the class.

Come as you are! Slow down and soften to soothe and nurture awareness of the mind, body + spirit. You'll be guided through long held passive poses to soften connective tissues, creating space in the hips, spine and pelvis. This practice is meditative, rejuvenating and restorative. An opportunity to melt away the stress, anxiety and tension that we carry physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. A great practice if you suffer from symptoms of arthritis or carry a lot of tension and stiffness in your body. Class is beginner + prenatal friendly.

You will need a yoga mat- and we use the support of props in many poses to support and enhance our practice. Don't have props? Don't worry! Get creative with some household items to use instead! We can help you with some suggestions.

Creative practices like art or writing can help to shift our mind, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.

Common feelings, like fear and anxiety, can dictate our emotions and our behaviors. Fear and anxiety are attempts to get our attention so that we can deal with issues, heal, grow, and move forward in life. The longer we avoid their nudging, the louder and messier they can become. Learning about fear and anxiety, and why we respond the way we do, can help us put into context what we may be experiencing with COVID-19 or what we have experienced in the past. Art journaling is actually a great way to understand and mitigate these things!

Each class will provide time for discussion and strategies for coping. Then it's time for some creative fun with art or writing! Gentle and easy prompts and directives will be provided to help nudge you along. Individuals may choose to participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.

A list of suggested supplies will be provided upon confirmation.

Come as you are! Slow down and soften to soothe and nurture awareness of the mind, body + spirit. You'll be guided through long held passive poses to soften connective tissues, creating space in the hips, spine and pelvis. This practice is meditative, rejuvenating and restorative. An opportunity to melt away the stress, anxiety and tension that we carry physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. A great practice if you suffer from symptoms of arthritis or carry a lot of tension and stiffness in your body. Class is beginner + prenatal friendly.

You will need a yoga mat- and we use the support of props in many poses to support and enhance our practice. Don't have props? Don't worry! Get creative with some household items to use instead! We can help you with some suggestions.

Creative practices like art or writing can help to shift our mind, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.

Common feelings, like fear and anxiety, can dictate our emotions and our behaviors. Fear and anxiety are attempts to get our attention so that we can deal with issues, heal, grow, and move forward in life. The longer we avoid their nudging, the louder and messier they can become. Learning about fear and anxiety, and why we respond the way we do, can help us put into context what we may be experiencing with COVID-19 or what we have experienced in the past. Art journaling is actually a great way to understand and mitigate these things!

Each class will provide time for discussion and strategies for coping. Then it's time for some creative fun with art or writing! Gentle and easy prompts and directives will be provided to help nudge you along. Individuals may choose to participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.

A list of suggested supplies will be provided upon confirmation.

Come as you are! Slow down and soften to soothe and nurture awareness of the mind, body + spirit. You'll be guided through long held passive poses to soften connective tissues, creating space in the hips, spine and pelvis. This practice is meditative, rejuvenating and restorative. An opportunity to melt away the stress, anxiety and tension that we carry physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. A great practice if you suffer from symptoms of arthritis or carry a lot of tension and stiffness in your body. Class is beginner + prenatal friendly.

You will need a yoga mat- and we use the support of props in many poses to support and enhance our practice. Don't have props? Don't worry! Get creative with some household items to use instead! We can help you with some suggestions.

Creative practices like art or writing can help to shift our mind, reduce stress, and promote relaxation.

Common feelings, like fear and anxiety, can dictate our emotions and our behaviors. Fear and anxiety are attempts to get our attention so that we can deal with issues, heal, grow, and move forward in life. The longer we avoid their nudging, the louder and messier they can become. Learning about fear and anxiety, and why we respond the way we do, can help us put into context what we may be experiencing with COVID-19 or what we have experienced in the past. Art journaling is actually a great way to understand and mitigate these things!

Each class will provide time for discussion and strategies for coping. Then it's time for some creative fun with art or writing! Gentle and easy prompts and directives will be provided to help nudge you along. Individuals may choose to participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.

A list of suggested supplies will be provided upon confirmation.

Come as you are! Slow down and soften to soothe and nurture awareness of the mind, body + spirit. You'll be guided through long held passive poses to soften connective tissues, creating space in the hips, spine and pelvis. This practice is meditative, rejuvenating and restorative. An opportunity to melt away the stress, anxiety and tension that we carry physically, emotionally, mentally and energetically. A great practice if you suffer from symptoms of arthritis or carry a lot of tension and stiffness in your body. Class is beginner + prenatal friendly.

You will need a yoga mat- and we use the support of props in many poses to support and enhance our practice. Don't have props? Don't worry! Get creative with some household items to use instead! We can help you with some suggestions.
