This Month in Class:
Mary is a registered yoga teacher certified at the 200-hour level. She is also certified in chair yoga and kids yoga. Mary came to yoga during a time of deep emotional stress and soon discovered the incredible healing that yoga provides and it’s ability to help us deal with life’s challenges. Her desire to share these benefits with others led her to become a yoga teacher. A strong belief that everyone should be able to experience the healing powers of yoga inspired her to pursue training in chair yoga. Mary is trained in mindfulness and has taken several courses on the neuroscience of yoga. She strongly believes in harnessing the power of the breath to heal the body and the spirit.
Her classes strive to be accessible to all and to introduce her students to the amazing possibilities that come from living in the moment.

In the last 10 minutes of class (while the kids play) I present a topic that can enhance and support your life as a parent. This is all about supporting you as who you uniquely are, parenting from your own instincts/intuition and creating your life as you desire with your kids.
As you bring even one simple mindfulness practice, yoga, touch practice, or our class topic into your week, each week, you will see beautiful changes that support you and your kid in a positive way.
AFTERNOON OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION
From the prehistoric cave renderings found at Lascaux, France to the paintings and drawings of a child, our urge to create can be expressed by picking up a brush with paint and letting it move across paper.
We will begin this afternoon workshop with a brief period of meditation. Coming from that inner place we will let the realm of paint be our means of self expression.
ALL MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED
ARTISTIC ABILITY IS NOT REQUIRED!
The goal of yoga is freedom from suffering, and living a life of presence, joy, acceptance and letting go. It is a deep investigation into the mystery of who and what we are, and what is.
Bring your practice to the next level in this 4 session course, which will delve into the Yoga Sutras, the primary text of yoga. The Sutras will provide instruction on how to work with our mind, body and emotions in our moment to moment experience. Such topics as; how we create and prolong suffering, the limitations of the ego, acceptance as practice, and the wisdom of impermanence will be discussed. The classes will provide a context for these ancient insights to become profoundly relevant to our everyday lives and relationships, going much deeper than a mere intellectual pursuit .
This course is perfect for beginners, as well as experienced yoga practitioners. All are welcome.
Come walk the path of yoga. Take the journey into the inner dimensions of self, which ultimately lead to a heart -centered life established in truth, compassion, presence and unity.
