Prenatal Series w/ Izzy

Saturday’s, May 7- June 18th | 11 am-12:15 pm | $70 series or $15 drop-in

 

Prenatal yoga can help with sleep, optimize baby’s position for birth, soothe the common physical discomforts associated with pregnancy, and help you feel more connected to your body as you prepare for childbirth (and beyond!). This series is taught by Izzy Adair, a certified birth and postpartum doula CD/PCD(DONA), Khalsa Way teacher, and certified perinatal yoga  instructor (trained by the Prenatal Yoga Center of NYC). In addition to being an experienced perinatal yoga teacher (RYPT), Izzy is also an E-RYT 500 and has a background as a professionally trained dancer. She incorporates simple dance and movement techniques throughout her classes to help students feel stronger and more confident as they prepare for their birth. In her classes, movement is used to prepare your body and baby for an easier birth.

Each class will include asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), and movement all specifically designed to prepare the body for a better birth and postpartum experience. 

 
We’ll get to know each other through weekly check ins, share the ups and downs of pregnancy, move, and breathe together as a group.

Restorative Yoga w/ Essential Oils and Sound Bowls w/ Michele

Saturday, May 21st | 4-5:30 pm | $30

 

Sold Out: Email Lucia@yessyogastudio.com to join our waitlist.

 

Enjoy the benefits of Restorative Yoga, sound healing, and essential oils in this unique workshop. Your nervous system will have the chance to completely relax in supported yoga postures meant to restore your system’s natural state of balance. Add in sound healing because sound is the language of the parasympathetic nervous system, which induces states of rest, digestion and restoration. This workshop is also great for anyone wanting to learn more about essential oils- their uses, application, safety and storage. We will start with education about essential oils and then move into a 60 min Restorative Yoga class with sound healing.

Gong Bath w/ Michele

Sunday, May 22nd | 7-8 pm | $20 

 

 

The use of vibration and sound is a critical tool for healing the human nervous system. We have all been in a state of uncertainty, anxiety, and dis-ease. These states of being tax the nervous system – both over-driving the sympathetic (flight or flight) nervous system and inhibiting the parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system. The yogis wisely noted that sound is the language of the parasympathetic nervous system and soothes a vata (or constant movement) imbalance. Here is an opportunity to allow your nervous system to repair and rejuvenate in a bath of sound vibrations. Class will begin with some insights about current astrology, stretching or calming yoga, and then 30-40 minutes of a gong bath. *If you are prone to headaches, please bring a head covering (hat, scarf, bandana, etc). *Minimum age for participation is 11-years-old. 

New Moon Song Circle-Fire w/ Conie & Liz

Friday, May 27th | 7:30-8:30 pm | $5-$20: Sliding Scale

When it feels like the world is falling apart, singing in community is a thing that heals and centers us—we’re not alone. Join us for a New Moon Song Circle, where we welcome in fresh beginnings and take our time exploring the potential of our voices.

As part of an ongoing series, each month we’ll take a deep dive connecting your voice to one element (did you know your voice has fire and water in it?) based on Barbara McAfee’s Full Voice Coaching. And with the new moon rising, we’ll set fresh intentions to guide the month ahead, release what’s not serving us, and move towards wholeness and delight.

Song leaders Liz Digitale Anderson and Conie Borchardt hold joyful, care-filled circles for you to discover freedom in your voice, de-stress your nervous system, and move your body. Come breathe deep and open up: we’ll sing songs to ground you, heal you, and motivate you for the days to come.

Pay what you can/sliding scale. No one turned away for lack of funds; we want you there! Just get in touch with us!

 

Please note: because Covid is airborne and we’ll be singing, we are asking folx to mask up for this workshop. Thank you!
