Have you always wanted to try Aerial Yoga, but going upside down or climbing are not for you?  Then, try our new Aerial Stretch Class on Sundays at noon.  This is a more relaxing approach to Aerial Yoga with only luxurious stretches and calming yoga poses.  Enjoy some wonderful stretches using the aerial yoga fabric as a supportive and relaxing prop.  Lay or sit softly in the fabric for full body stretches and relaxation.  Stretch your legs with one leg on the floor and the other in the fabric.  Melt away daily stress.

Valentine’s Weekend FREE Yin Yoga Aromatherapy Class

Sun, Feb 16

7:00 – 8:15 pm

FREE

Celebrate Valentine’s Day Weekend.  Come join us for this FREE class. The energy represented in “yin” and “yang” is derived from the Chinese Taoist tradition. Our yin side is at peace with how things are with a quiet acceptance, representing our bones and connective tissues. Our yang side strives for change that makes us think we are never good enough, held in our skin and muscles. Deep stretches are held for 3 to 5 minutes, gently stretching connective tissues, leaving you in a wonderful state of bliss.

The Karma Yoga Project

(Free/Donation Based) Karma Gentle Yoga Class

Join us the last Sunday of each month 12:00 – 1:15 pm

taught by Melissa Valeriote on Sun, Feb 23

Karma Yoga is the yoga of good intentions.  It’s about purifying your heart by learning to act selflessly in service of others.  Through karma yoga, we learn kindness and compassion without an expectation of gain.  We step away from our ego towards a more humble path.  Service is at the heart of karma yoga and its focus is on giving back.  This class shares with the community gentle yoga movements annd restorative stretches, taught by our Bend Teachers (Yoga Teacher Training Program).  We simply ask for an optional cash donation of $10.  Proceeds will be given to the local SPCA Haven for Animals.
