• Sit down every single week and work on your intentions and desires. Bring them to life through meditation, correct thinking and action.
  • Listen, listen, listen and then drop into your heart center to find your answers.
  • Drink for your body type. The Wind (Vata) needs to focus on drinking more water and being mindful of thirst. The Fire (Pitta) will drink when they are thirsty and don’t need to be told to drink. The Earth (Kapha) does not need to consume so much water. It’s bloating you. Drink when you are thirsty and don’t force yourself to drink when you are not.
  • Move every day. 30 minutes of walking and a little bit of gentle yoga. You don’t have to bend yourself into a pretzel to maintain health.
  • Do one thing a day that is only for yourself…meditation, quiet walking, a bath, a nice meal or a nice inspirational read.
  • When things are not going your way, find the lesson in the situation and move forward.
  • Your thoughts become your words, your words become your deeds and your deeds become your whole life. Start with kind thoughts towards self and others.
  • Prioritize your needs placing your physical and emotional health first.
  • Poor health is caused and aggravated by stress. Take time to manage your stress daily. Breath, move and journal.
  • Let other’s achievements inspire you.
  • Change can be very difficult to implement. Simply accept your current situation and start where you are. It’s perfect where you are. Just begin.
  • Know what you value. Cultivate your own Niyama to guide your life. This is your personal mission statement.
  • Maintain breath awareness. Every breath in, God comes to you. Every breath out, you go to God. In the space between, merge.
  • Take in good food and good water. A multi-vitamin each day as well as Calcium with D for women is a must. Use other vitamins and herbs with caution and sound advice.
  • Plan for financial security and financial “moksha”….freedom.
  • Plan for your death…in doing so, plan for your life. Live.
  • Observe your thoughts. Interrupt your less-favorable thoughts with mantra and thought replacement.
  • Spend time in nature. Know that you are deeply connected.
  • A wish is simply a desire that lacks intention. Stop wishing. Don’t stop dreaming.

Instant Yogi Beginner's Yoga with Kris Klopp

If you are new to yoga, been away from your practice for awhile, recovering from physical situations, you will love this class. It’s a teaching class to get you into proper form. You will learn all about the philosophy of yoga, connect with your breath, relax, de-stress, and feel nourished.

Tuesday

9:00 - 10:15 am

Yin/Restorative Yoga with Christy McDonel

This class begins with gentle movement to warm the body. Long holds focused on opening the hips are followed by loving and gentle restoration to ground the energy of the body and facilitate deep healing and relaxation.

6:30 - 7:45 pm

Gentle Flow with Kelly Huber

Appropriate for all including New to Yoga.

Vinyasa means “composition” and in yoga is treating the body as a vessel for the breath. Each breath is linked with movement. An inhale brings the arms up to the sky, an exhale brings the hands to the earth. Just sit and feel yourself breath for a minute and imagine putting that breath with movement. You’d be moving pretty fast, right? In Vinyasa, yoga becomes a dance of sorts.

Wednesday

9:00 - 10:15 am

Hatha Yoga with Christy

Class cancelled on 1/20

All yoga is a derivative of Hatha Yoga. “Ha” means “sun” and “tha” means moon. Hatha yoga is a balanced approach to integration of the solar and lunar channels of the body. It’s an exploration in the duality of the mind. You will experience movement, breathwork, and right messaging based in the 8 limbs of yoga. Some Hatha classes add one pointed focus, withdrawing the sense, and meditation taking Hatha yoga to a new level…the Royal Path of yoga or Raja Yoga. Expect long holds and strength building.

6:30 - 7:45 pm

Restorative Yoga with Diantha Duran

You will experience a grounded class that begins with a very gentle warm up. You next move to various poses on the floor where you are propped up on props and covered with blankets and eye pillows.

You may experience reiki (hands on healing), aromatherapy (use of oils and if you don’t want them you just tell the teacher), nutritional messaging, and mindfulness (brain training). It is perfect for our stressed lives and if you are feeling down or chaotic. It allows the body to heal.

Yin Yoga with Melissa

Yang is the masculine, the solar, or the energetic energy of the universe. Yin is the feminine, lunar, or more passive energy of the universe. In a Yin class you will begin with a warm up and then move to poses more hip focused. You will use props as needed to make yourself comfortable as you hold your poses for 3 – 6 minutes. These poses are on the floor so you are not standing in a pose for 3 – 6 minutes. You are seated, propped, and comfortable.

It differs from restorative in that the poses are more difficult and more active, yet you are still relaxing and resting into the poses. If you would like to make your standing practice must more fluid and easy, this class is a must do once a week. It opens the toes, feet, ankles, knees, and especially the hips. Energetically, we store karma and toxicity in the hips. Your hip is your largest joint with the most connective tissue to soften and mold. This class is generally dimly lit with candles. You feel soft and pliable when you leave.

Vinyasa Flow with Timmiera Lawrence

Vinyasa means “composition” and in yoga is treating the body as a vessel for the breath. Each breath is linked with movement. An inhale brings the arms up to the sky, an exhale brings the hands to the earth. Just sit and feel yourself breath for a minute and imagine putting that breath with movement. You’d be moving pretty fast, right? In Vinyasa, yoga becomes a dance of sorts. Generally, the class starts with a warm up on the hands and knees and then moves to standing and a sequence of Sun Salutations. Even in a hatha class, you are going to Vinyasa through Sun Salutations. The class can be quite challenging and is a work out so if you are new to yoga, you will experience learning curve of 5 – 7 times until you know the routine which varies a bit from teacher to teacher. The great news is it is not as complicated as learning to dance! Vinyasa can be slow, fast, or hot so if you are newer, pick slow. Elemental OM is a certified Heart of Yoga studio.
