sun for julyJuly is almost here and summer is in full swing!   To mark this fun, summer month, we are offering FOUR new daytime classes to the schedule – perfect for teachers, students, and others who have summer vacation time and are looking for a daytime class.   Morning yoga is a fantastic way to set a great tone for the day.   We are very excited to add these four NEW weekday morning classes to the schedule for the summer:

 

 

NEW!! Beginner Basics with Lucia (Monday mornings at 10 AM for July and August):

beginner basicsStart your week in a positive way!  For the summer, Lucia is teaching this fabulous new class.  Beginner Basics is perfect for those looking to work on fundamental yoga postures.  The class will encompass standing and seated postures, and will help you gain strength, flexibility and balance.  Props are used to help you as you learn the poses. The class ends with a relaxing restorative pose.   Lucia’s evening classes sell out, and this is a great opportunity to enjoy one of her classes.

NEW!  Yin  Yoga with Dona (Wednesday mornings at 10:30 AM starting in July and a special evening class on Monday, July 27th, at 7:30 PM):

Discover a wonderful style of yoga – Yin Yoga!  

Yin Yoga is a more meditative yoga style.  The term “yin yoga” comes from the Taoist tradition. Yin is about finding stillness and cooling the body, where as Yang relates to movement, often repetitive movement, creating heat in the body.  There is not a great need for a lot of postures in the Yin Yoga practice.  Emphasis is placed on a few basic postures which are held for longer periods of time. In Yin Practice, there is a more conscientious attention to breath and the sensations in the body.  Slow, simple yin yoga is the class to choose if you want to calm the mind, stretch the body, and promote flexibility.  The yin practice is a great compliment to a yang practice or active lifestyle.  We need both to come into balance and maintain optimum health and wellness.

The Moonflower Yoga Book Club:

Come join us for the next meeting of our fun Moonflower Yoga Book Club!   Each 4-6 weeks, the club meets to discuss the book selection from the previous meeting & selects the next book to read.  It is a great way to meet interesting people, form new friendships, and have some lively conversations.  Delicious homemade goodies are served.  All are welcome to read the current book selection and join us!  If you have not read this current book, you are still welcome to join us and help us select the next book that we will read.  For our next meeting, we will be discussing:

THE ROSIE PROJECT  by Graeme Simsion

An international sensation, this hilarious, feel-good novel is narrated by an oddly charming and socially challenged genetics professor on an unusual quest: to find out if he is capable of true love.

Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. He is a man who can count all his friends on the fingers of one hand, whose lifelong difficulty with social rituals has convinced him that he is simply not wired for romance. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a “wonderful” husband, his first reaction is shock. Yet he must concede to the statistical probability that there is someone for everyone, and he embarks upon The Wife Project. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which he approaches all things, Don sets out to find the perfect partner. She will be punctual and logical—most definitely not a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker, or a late-arriver.

Yet Rosie Jarman is all these things. She is also beguiling, fiery, intelligent—and on a quest of her own. She is looking for her biological father, a search that a certain DNA expert might be able to help her with. Don’s Wife Project takes a back burner to the Father Project and an unlikely relationship blooms, forcing the scientifically minded geneticist to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that love is not always what looks good on paper.  The Rosie Project is a moving and hilarious novel for anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of overwhelming challenges.

Next Meeting Date:  Friday, June 26,  7 PM – 8:30 PM

Donation Fee to cover costs:  $10

Walk-ins are welcome for any remaining class spaces that are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our class sizes are small to provide individual attention, and we recommend that you reserve your class in advance. Most classes have a maximum booking of 6-8 students per class.   Some classes, such as Adaptive Yoga, have a limit of 3 students per class.   If a class is listed in solid red on the calendar tab, the class is fully booked for the day.   We do keep waiting lists for classes which are fully booked.   If the class you would like to attend is sold out, please call us at (516) 557 2206, and we will add you to the waiting list for the class and contact you if a space opens up.

Each month, we offer class packages at a discounted class price.   The class packages vary from month to month.   We list the monthly package offer on this page and we also distribute a monthly email announcing the special for the following month.   The class packages can be purchased at the Moonflower Yoga studio, and are valid for the month of the package, i.e. the October package is valid for all classes on the October schedule.  If you have any questions regarding this, just give us a call at (516) 557 2206 or stop by the Moonflower Yoga studio and we will be happy to help you.

Moonflower Yoga also offers fun and varied workshops and events where you can learn something new.   Some of our past happenings  have included feng shui, meditation, women’s health issues, astrology, how to deal with neck/shoulder pain, ways to move towards a healthier diet, and tarot cards.   Workshop and events prices vary depending on the workshop or event. You can also purchase your workshop or event online by clicking on the class schedule tab above and completing the simple registration steps.

And check out our fun Moonflower Yoga Book Club!   It is a great way to meet new people and have lively conversation while enjoying some delicious homemade treats.   The Moonflower Yoga Book Club meets every 4- 6 weeks.   We generally meet on a Sunday afternoon, except for the summer months we will be meeting on a Friday evening.   You are welcome to read the book we have selected and join us.   If you haven’t read the book, you can still join us and help us decide what the next book selection should be.  Further details can be found by clicking on the Events tab above.
