 Introducing Yoga Your Way! – The Class Plan to Fit YOUR Needs!

 

Moonflower Yoga has designed a great NEW yoga class offering.  This great plan offers the convenience and comfort of Zoom classes, coupled with a limited reopening of the Moonflower Yoga studio for in-person classes.  This new offering is entitled “Yoga Your Way!” as it enables you to select great yoga or meditation classes based on what works best for YOU.   Here is more info:

With this new initiative, you will have many options on how you can enjoy a great yoga class, including the ability to attend select in-person classes:

  • Do you like the convenience of Zoom classes at home? Every class on the schedule is  available via Zoom!  If you live out of state or away from the studio, or just feel more comfortable practicing at home in a Zoom environment, you can still attend any class on the schedule via Zoom.
  • Would you prefer a 60-minute class instead of 30 minutes? The new Yoga Your Way initiative will offer some 60-minute yoga classes.
  • In a time crunch? There will also be 30-minute yoga classes on the schedule for when your time is limited.
  • Do you miss in-person classes? The studio doors have reopened for some 60-minute classes on the Moonflower Yoga schedule with a new “hybrid class” program; see further details below.

 

There are 3 new class categories under Yoga Your Way!:

  • 30-minute Zoom-only classes.
  • NEW! 60-minute Zoom-only classes.
  • NEW! 60-minute “hybrid” yoga classes. In the hybrid yoga class, the class will be available via Zoom -AND- it will be available to a maximum of 4 fully-vaccinated individuals to attend in person at the Moonflower Yoga studio.  See additional info below on this in-person option.

 

Here is more info about the new “hybrid” classes …

The Moonflower Yoga studio room has been refitted so that it can accommodate a maximum of 4 yoga students in the physical studio room for a live yoga class.  Two students will be on the right side of the room; 2 students will be on the left side.  If you are one of the 4 people attending in person, you will NOT be on camera during the class. Simultaneously, this is a Zoom class so that students at home can attend using Zoom as you currently do.  There is a camera in the studio room to capture the instructor of the class so that the students attending via Zoom can follow along with the instructor, just as you do currently in a Zoom class.  There is a TV in the studio room s0 the teacher can interact with the Zoom attendees.  Please note that if you wish to be one of the 4 people attending in person, there is a different pricing model and structure; please click on the “Pricing” tab for additional info.

With the implementation of the new “Yoga Your Way” class system, here is a listing of the classes on the schedule with their new class designation.   Please note some classes will have a slightly earlier start time; for example the Sunday Beginner Yoga class now begins at 945 AM and becomes a 60-minute hybrid class.

Safety Protocols for the hybrid classes:

There are some safety protocols that have been implemented in an effort to protect students and teachers coming into the studio for the new hybrid classes:

  • The studio room, as well as the office/merchandise area, has been fitted with a new HEPA filtration system to keep the air clean and disinfected for those attending the new hybrid classes.
  • The instructor will be fully vaccinated.
  • The students entering the studio must be fully vaccinated and show proof of full vaccination the first time they attend a class.
  • There will be a temperature check at the door.
  • There will be a hand-sanitizing station to disinfect your hands when entering.  You will be asked to please sanitize your hands on entry.
  • The in-studio classes will be limited to 4 students.
  • You will need to bring your own yoga props for the in-studio class and take your props home with you when you leave. This means you will need to bring your own yoga mat, yoga blanket (if desired), yoga strap (if desired) and bolster (if desired).   If you would like to purchase any of these items, Moonflower Yoga sells new props sealed in plastic including blankets, straps, blocks, and bolsters.  We also sell great yoga mats.  Yoga blocks can be provided for class use and will be cleaned with disinfecting wipes after each class use.

 

Pricing:

There will be different class pricing models depending on the type of class you select.  If your budget is limited, a 30-minute Zoom class, priced at just $11, is a great option.  You can also earn a FREE 30-minute yoga class with a monthly class purchase of $100. Click on the “Pricing” tab for more info.

 

We are excited about these new options available under the new “Yoga Your Way!” program and hope you will enjoy the various new options that you now have available for attending a great yoga class at Moonflower Yoga.  If you have any questions or need additional info, please let us know.

MEDITATION: Join us for one of these great classes listed below:  “Relax and De-Stress with Guided Meditation”, “Morning Movement and Meditation”, “Slow Flow and Singing Bowls” and “Stretch Meditate and Relax”.

YOGA FOR BONE HEALTH (Lynn) (B) (hybrid class) (NEW! ):  Osteoporosis causes peri-menopausal and post-menopausal women to suffer significant bone loss.  Recent studies now confirm that consistent yoga practice can actually increase bone mineral density. This great class will concentrate on 15 keys postures (standing and seated) chosen for their particular benefit in providing the weight-bearing oppositional force crucial to help improve bone health. Some of the poses will be held for up to one minute to improve strength which helps to prevent falls (and therefore fractures). There will also be focus on stretching tight stressed muscles (which means you are less likely to fall and break something) and the building of stability and agility (so that if you do start to fall you may help to catch yourself). Join us for this great sequence of postures designed to improve your physical balance, as well as your mental balance, release tension from your day, and get you ready for a relaxing evening ahead. All levels, especially beginners, are welcome. (Thursdays at 5:15 PM).

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) (30-minute Zoom-only class).

CHAIR YOGA (B) (mixed class – see end of the description):    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 in a 60-minute hybrid class format.  Also try Chair Yoga with Vicky on Thursdays at 11:30 AM which is a 30-minute Zoom class).

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 – 30-minute Zoom class).

HATHA YOGA FOR BEGINNERS  (B) (Vicky) (online class): Join us for Hatha yoga, a class designed for all levels, including beginners!  You will be guided through a series of fundamental yoga poses to stretch your muscles; release muscle tension from the day; and improve strength, flexibility, and balance. Hatha is the traditional practice of yoga, and will prepare you for any other style of yoga you might want to try.  (Mondays at 5:15 PM – 30-minute Zoom class).

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 – 30-minute Zoom-only class).

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. In this class, taught in a yin yoga style, you will do stretching postures on the ground with the assistance of props you have in your home such as blankets, pillows, or towels  to allow you to deeply relax into the posture.  If you do have a yoga strap, this is helpful.   If you do not have a yoga strap, you can substitute a bathrobe tie, an  unused men’s tie, or rolled towel.  This lovely class will help you increase your flexibility and strength. 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 via Zoom for 60 minutes).

MOVE WITH THE MOON  (Theresa) (B) (hybrid class): The class will consist of a modified moon salutation.   A moon salutation helps you channel the calming and cooling energy of the moon – a great way to end your day!  You will slowly move and flow through each pose as you pay special attention to the quality of each movement.   You will harness the moon’s energy to allow you to start fresh and help you manifest things you truly want.  Some of the benefits of this great stretching class will also include: balancing internal coolness & fire, channeling creativity, reducing stress and anxiety, helping to relieve sciatic nerve pain, and getting you ready for a good, peaceful night’s sleep.   Come join us for this great new online yoga class offered at Moonflower Yoga via Zoom! (Tuesdays at 715 PM).

AWAKEN THE SUBTLE BODY YOGA CLASS (Theresa) (B) (online class):  Join Theresa for this great yoga class open to all levels of practice including beginners! Awakening the subtle body refers to the energy in our bodies which we experience through chakras and bandhas. Through gentle yoga movement and working with your breath, you will explore and direct these energy pathways to uplift your body and your spiritual vibration. It is a wonderful way to start your day and be ready for a fabulous day ahead. Come give it a try! You may wish to have a blanket or towel near your yoga mat for use during this practice.

“The Henna Artist” by Alka Joshi

4.31 rating with 2151 reviews – 368 pages – published March 2020

Vivid and compelling in its portrait of one woman’s struggle for fulfillment in a society pivoting between the traditional & modern, The Henna Artist opens a door into a world that is at once lush and fascinating, stark and cruel.

Escaping from an abusive marriage, seventeen-year-old Lakshmi makes her way alone to the vibrant 1950s pink city of Jaipur. There she becomes the most highly requested henna artist—and confidante—to the wealthy women of the upper class. But trusted with the secrets of the wealthy, she can never reveal her own…

Known for her original designs and sage advice, Lakshmi must tread carefully to avoid the jealous gossips who could ruin her reputation and her livelihood. As she pursues her dream of an independent life, she is startled one day when she is confronted by her husband, who has tracked her down these many years later with a high-spirited young girl in tow—a sister Lakshmi never knew she had. Suddenly the caution that she has carefully cultivated as protection is threatened. Still she perseveres, applying her talents and lifting up those that surround her as she does.
