Spring has officially arrived!! And while we may still have some cold days, there are signs around us of spring’s arrival. The robins have returned. The crocuses are in bloom, and the beautiful cheery daffodils have sprouted green leaves and will be blooming soon. April is a great time to tone and get in shape for the upcoming warmer months. We have many wonderful classes on the schedule to get you ready for the warmer weather including Stress Reduction Vinyasa Flow, Level One, Move and Stretch, all of our Beginner classes, Sunday Flow, Yoga Lunch Express, Stretch and Flow, and Tai Chi. Give these fabulous classes a try!!
Our new “Calming and Healing Your Spirit” classes which take place on Wednesday nights at 7:30 PM are a hit! Each Wednesday evening class in April has a different class designed to bring you inner peace and help you cope with stress and challenging situations. Please join us for this amazing new class series! Here is the specific line-up for the upcoming Wednesday night classes in April:
- Wed., April 16th, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM: Diane Monks will lead you in a meditative Chanting class. Chanting helps relieve stress and refocus the mind. It is soothing and relaxing and is lovely done in a group session.
- Wed., April 23rd, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM: Enjoy an extra night of our very popular Candlelight Restorative class led by Moonflower Yoga owner, Nancy. After some gentle stretches on the floor, you will spend several minutes deeply relaxing into various yoga poses with the help of blankets, bolsters, pillows, and other props to support you. The room is lit in flickering candlelight with soft music playing. Your stress will melt away!
- Wed., April 30th, 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM: Learn “Tapping” (Emotional Freedom Technique). Tapping is a wonderful, self-administered tool that you can use to help you release stress or anxiety from certain situations or people. EFT (“Emotional Freedom Technique”) is also called “tapping” because you actually tap with your fingers on acupressure points around your head, face, and torso while saying simple affirmations and focusing on a particular negative emotion, trauma, addiction, or event. It is calming, centering, and can help you to release self-limiting habits. Tapping is being used by returning members of our military to help them cope with the after-effects of combat activity. Come and give this amazing tool a try! This class will be taught by Christine Senetto.
You will want to reserve your space in this great new series of “Calming and Healing Your Spirit” classes which can help you feel renewed and relaxed! Book your spot ASAP as space is limited.
