Hello Spring! A time for new beginnings…
Spring is here! We are once again in daylight savings time and the days are longer. It is so nice to still have daylight after 7 PM.
As we say goodbye to winter, and start to move our bodies more, we are reminded that spring is the perfect time for new beginnings, for feeling better, as well as getting in shape for the upcoming warm weather activities. A great yoga class can help you move your body, stretch tight muscles, build strength and flexibility and help you physically become stronger, as well as help you feel more relaxed. We currently have 13 weekly yoga or meditation classes from which you can choose. ALL of the classes are also available via Zoom except for the Tuesday evening Candlelight Restorative class. Some classes, designated as ‘hybrid yoga” classes, are simultaneously also available for in-person attendance. For further info above on “hybrid” classes click on the “Descriptions” tab above.
There are also some NEW yoga classes on the schedule including “Low and Slow” with Jessica on Thursday evenings at 7 PM for 60 minutes. Or try the new “Goddesses and Warriors” 30-minute class with Lynn on Wednesdays at 5 PM. Come give these new classes a try! You will find also find further info about the classes on the “Descriptions” tab above.
If you would like more relaxation and stress reduction in your life, you can try one of our great meditation activities. Rosanne’s Relax and De-Stress with Guided Meditation class on Monday nights at 7 PM, is a wonderful choice, as is the lovely array of workshops including an Evening of Guided Meditation and Relaxation with Bhante Sujatha (the loving kindness monk) on Wednesday, June 28th (you have just missed a session), or a super relaxing Yoga Nidra evening with Jackie on Wednesday, May 31st or June 21st. There are also fun activities such as the monthly Moonflower Yoga Book Club or the Moonflower Yoga Mah Jongg Club. Or learn something new and cook alongside us from your kitchen with our delicious In the Kitchen with Bob workshop series offered monthly on a Sunday afternoon.
