MONTHLY WEDNESDAY EVENING YOGA CLASSES - August 6, September 3
We are offering a monthly yoga class on the first Wednesday of every month from 6:00 - 7:15pm. The class will be taught in a Phoenix Rising style. Each class will have a specific theme/focus and through questions and instruction of yoga postures, you will be led to experience each theme and how it relates to your Life. These classes can be taken off of your regular Yoga class card. THE AUGUST CLASS IS ON AUGUST 6 . THE THEME WILL BE "TAKING A CLOSER LOOK AT YOUR FIRST CHAKRA" AND WILL LEAD YOU THROUGH AN EXPLORATION OF THE PHYSICAL AND EMOTIONAL ASPECTS OF THIS CHAKRA (including problems with your hips, lower back, legs, knees, feet as well as your feelings around fear, shame, feeling grounded and secure, your relationship with money and family.) If any of these strike a chord with you, this may be the perfect opportunity to take a deeper look. Please feel free to call Stephanie with any questions. (Just a heads up that the theme for September's class will be "Taking a closer look at your Second Chakra".)
MONTHLY JOURNEY DANCE YOGA CLASS - July 12, August 9, Sept 13

Join Denise VanBriggle as she facilitates an energetic journey through music, movement, and laughter. The class is held monthly on the second Saturday of the month from 10:00 - 11:30am. The cost is $12 per class. Denise says, "After experiencing my first JourneyDance at a yoga studio in New York City in November of 2011, I immediately knew I wanted to bring this modality and all of its gifts to as many people as possible. When I dance, I feel simultaneously grounded yet airy; safely held yet free. Nothing brings me more joy than helping others feel the same, and I look forward to dancing with you soon! " We are happy to have Denise and JourneyDance at Free Spirit Yoga!
