Qoya with Betsy Blankenbaker

Join Betsy Blankenbaker for Qoya!

Qoya is a shift in consciousness that evolves the way we have been taught to move in our bodies as women focusing less on how it looks, and more on how it feels. Through meditation, stretching, breathwork, yoga and free dance, you’ll begin to dance with the truest part of your essence.

.

There is no beginner, intermediate or advanced levels and no way to do it wrong. You will enjoy and benefit even if it’s your first class.

We move in comfortable clothing and bare feet. Bring a yoga mat and a playful soul.

Friday May 5th — Partners Thai Massage with Brandon Joe Rutten.  First Friday of Every Month.

Come explore the ancient healing art of Thai Yoga Massage. This fun floor-based practice is a reintroduction to your own body and many consider it like having a yoga class done to you. You’ll learn to relax while using your body weight and gravity to apply pressure with hands, elbows, feet, and knees. This clothed practice combines acupressure, energy line stimulation, and yoga-like stretching. We’ll cover basic practice techniques like mindset, bone stacking, fluid weight transfer, and positioning. Everyone will get to give and receive. No experience needed. Come solo or with a partner. Wear stretchy comfortable clothes, and bring a yoga mat or blanket and water.

 

Friday May 12th — Partners Acro Yoga lead with Ron Hopkins and Kimberly Hopkins-Hart. Second Friday of Every Month.

Acro Yoga blends the flexibility, mindfulness, and kindness of yoga with the dynamic strength and power of acrobatics. This workshop will allow you to experience your practice with a whole new relationship to gravity, trust and strength. Our acro yoga will also inspire growth in your practice of open, direct, and compassionate verbal communication as you are being led through fun and challenging poses with a partner. You will definitely have fun exploring the fundamentals of L-base Acro Yoga. Throughout, attention will be given to safety and also to cultivating a playful sense of humor! Absolutely no Acrobatic experience necessary and no partner is needed at sign-up. Please make sure to avoid wearing lotion or slick/slippery clothing.

Tap Into Wellness: Mindful Eating Through HeartMath

 

Facilitated by Health Coach & Author, Jennifer Malins

When you enroll in the Tap into Wellness™ program, you will gain practical yet powerful tools to respond better to stress and to live a more conscious life, starting with what you feed your mind and your body.  You’ll be amazed at how many areas of your life that chronic stress can impact, from brain fog to poor nutrient absorption.   Through the HeartMath® program, a scientifically-proven method of increasing resilience in order to respond more appropriately to stress, you will start to find the calm within the storm.  You will also learn how to use these tools to eat mindfully, including making conscious, healthy food choices and listening to your intuition about what your body is telling you.

 

This class may be for you if you are having difficulty with:

  • Fatigue and overwhelm
  • Achieving your dietary and lifestyle goals due to lack of inspiration
  • Sleeping due to a racing mind or digesting food due to lifestyle/emotional state
