YOGA BASICS (Melinda) (B) (online class): Join us for a great online class, designed to provide you with a deeper understanding about the basics of yoga! Yoga is a moving meditation that focuses on linking the movements of the body with the breath. This class will focus on some key poses that stretch and strengthen various parts of the body while creating a feeling on peace and calm. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned practitioner, this class will allow you to take your practice to the next level! (Tuesdays at 6 PM).

CHAIR YOGA (B) (online class):    If you have difficulty moving in a regular yoga class, or if you are an office worker looking to learn some yoga poses to do while seated at your desk to relieve muscle tension and stress, then give this gentle, beginner-level chair yoga class a try! The class will consist of fundamental yoga poses done seated in a chair or with the support of a chair for those who can stand while holding a chair. You will learn poses to help with flexibility, stretching & strength building. For those who can stand, there will be balance poses using a chair for support. In all the poses, you will be guided to link your breath to movement. The class will end with quiet relaxation seated on your chair followed by a brief meditation. (Tuesdays at 12 noon with Nancy; Fridays at 11:30 AM with Vicky).

MORNING MOVEMENT AND MEDITATION (Jessica) (B) (online class):   Join Jessica for the return of this great class that she created for Moonflower Yoga!   Begin your day with peace, mindfulness and bliss! This gentle yoga class begins with a moving meditation which allows you to balance the body, calm the mind and awaken your spirit. Slowly stretch tight muscles, loosen stiff joints, relieve stress, increase flexibility and cultivate balance. Each posture is entered into with deep reverence and awareness, all while being mindful of the breath in this soft restorative yoga flow class. Experience the soothing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls woven into this gentle sequence. The latter portion of the class will consist of relaxation and a brief seated meditation to bring you a sense of inner peace and get you ready for a great day ahead! (Tuesday mornings at 930 AM).

CHAIR BARRE BASICS (B) (Lynn) (online class) (B): Join us for a lower body practice inspired by the principles of yoga, Pilates and ballet to lift, stretch, strengthen, sculpt, and tone. This class is designed to increase your stamina, awaken weak muscles, decrease stress and restore balance to your body/mind. Using only your own body resistance and the aid of a simple chair, the class will use a sequence of low-impact movements to correct posture, improve alignment and find extension of form. The class begins with simple seated stretches, moves into standing exercises, and ends with a brief seated cool down meditation. Together, by stretching and strengthening, breathing and balancing, you can target and tone your way to discover the transformative and empowering effects of “contrology”: the complete coordination of the body, mind, and spirit. Come give this great class a try! (Wed, 5:15 PM).

YIN YOGA STRETCH (Rose) (B)  (online class): Looking for a great, late morning, beginner yoga class on Fridays?  Come try Friday Stretch – perfect for all fitness levels.

It is also a wonderful way to release stress from the week and get you ready for a fabulous weekend! (Wednesday mornings at 10 AM).

(Tuesdays at 715 PM).

PILATES STRENGTHEN AND STRETCH (Lynn) (B/I) (online class):    The Pilates method of body conditioning is the art of strength, stretch and control. The system was developed in the 1920’s by legendary physical trainer, Joseph H. Pilates, to improve flexibility, enhance posture & coordination, stabilize, and elongate the spine and establish balance & overall strength.  The primary focus in this mat sequence will be on your body’s core (abs, lower back, and the surrounding stabilizing muscles).

Hips and  Hearts workshop with Lynn Pieroni  (NEW!) (ONLINE WORKSHOP)

Sunday, January 24th, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

The most vulnerable areas of stale toxic energy repression are our HIPS (lower back, pelvis, glutes) and our HEARTS (neck, chest, shoulders).  We rely on one component as the root where our spine extends FROM and the other as the structure where our spine concludes TO!   Unresolved trauma, fear and conflict, and emotional baggage in the body/mind results in tremendous tension held in the muscles and joints of these two regions.

Blockage in one results in poor grounding of our pelvic floor at our base where we find both power and peace plugged into the vibrational current of our planet earth; and the other results in an underactive heart chakra manifesting in physical stiffness of the upper back, poor posture, rounded shoulders, compressed lungs and inhibited breath function.  Stress to both limit how we live, the choices we make and how we interact with ourselves and with others.

This immersion  workshop will be a strengthening and lengthening series of postures designed to mobilize and stabilize the hips as well as open, release and rehydrate the muscles of the chest and shoulders.

Hip and heart openers include some of the most rewarding stretches in all of yoga asana. Practicing them together in this way will bring understanding to how they relate to each other, will bring awareness to your posture, improvement to the rest of your practice and powerful healing and restoring benefits to impact your mind, your chakra system, and your spirit.   Join together with Lynn to create free, purifying space for love and healing to flow!

Price: $40 per person

Book Now!  You can register for this workshop by clicking on the “Schedule” tab above and following the simple registration and payment steps.  Approximately 2-3 days before the workshop, you will receive a separate Zoom invitation email with the Zoom info you will need to join us for the workshop.

Help Release Back Pain and Stress in this Great Online Workshop!

Breathe Into The Spine For Your Health

With Theresa Mariano Doyle

Saturday, February 7th, 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

Join us for the launch of this great, NEW workshop offered online via Zoom! Theresa will begin with movements that support the natural shape of the spine. The class progression is slowly and consciously focused on the internal experience of the body rather than the outside appearance of the pose.  You will move through stretches that focus on releasing tension  in the muscles that affect the lower back and all the way up through the spine. Theresa will balance the workshop with  some ways to strengthen those same muscles to help benefit the long-term health of the spine.

Preventing the build-up of tension in your muscles is critical to maintaining a healthy posture. Enjoy relaxing your muscles through active movements.  You will practice spinal breathing to stimulate energy, health and a peaceful mind.  The benefits are many including:

  • Bring more awareness and flexibility to the spine.
  • Bring energy out of your head and into your body resulting in clearer thinking.
  • Release stress.
  • Improve lung capacity.
  • Open up the heart center and circulates energy through the nervous system.
  • Allow the body to recharge and rebalance.

The class will finish with lovely restorative poses to further relax the muscles as you enjoy a deep nourishing meditation in savasana (closing relaxation pose).

Happy Spines=Peaceful Sleep

As you will be attending this workshop from the safety and comfort of your home, it is recommended that you have some props nearby that can help support your body during the workshop.  We recommend that you have the following: 3 blankets, 1 or 2 yoga blocks (if you do not have yoga blocks, a thick book can be substituted), 1 or 2 medium bed pillows, a yoga strap or equivalent such as a bathrobe tie or an unwanted men’s tie, and a folding chair or standard chair.

Price: $40 per person.

“The Girl with the Louding Voice” by Abi Dare   (NOTE: Comments on this book indicate the audio book is wonderfully read) 

A powerful, emotional debut novel told in the unforgettable voice of a young Nigerian woman who is trapped in a life of servitude but determined to fight for her dreams and choose her own future.

Adunni is a fourteen-year-old Nigerian girl who knows what she wants: an education. This, her mother has told her, is the only way to get a “louding voice”—the ability to speak for herself and decide her own future. But instead, Adunni’s father sells her to be the third wife of a local man who is eager for her to bear him a son and heir.

When Adunni runs away to the city, hoping to make a better life, she finds that the only other option before her is servitude to a wealthy family. As a yielding daughter, a subservient wife, and a powerless slave, Adunni is told, by words and deeds, that she is nothing.

But while misfortunes might muffle her voice for a time, they cannot mute it. And when she realizes that she must stand up not only for herself, but for other girls, for the ones who came before her and were lost, and for the next girls, who will inevitably follow; she finds the resolve to speak, however she can—in a whisper, in song, in broken English—until she is heard.


“Confessions on the 745” by Lisa Unger

From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

Everyone has a secret… Now she knows yours.

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.  Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover. Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a TrainConfessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.
