Welcome

At Heart & Sole Yoga we believe that everybody regardless of age, gender, fitness level, or physical condition can participate in movement and benefit from developing a yoga or Nia practice.  We invite you to breathe deeply, strengthen muscles, learn focus, relieve stress, practice balance, and move gently to your ability. We will help you find a class that meets your needs, so you can fully experience the numerous health benefits of both Yoga and Nia. 

 

WELCOME TO OUR STUDIO.  The current eight week semester ends Thursday October 25th.  Our late fall semester begins Monday, October 29 and ends Thursday, December 20.  

This fall we are excited to introduce Gabrielle Hagen to our yoga community.  Gabi will be teaching our Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes.  George Nagel's Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction continues on Tuesday evenings through November.  It's Lisa Sandin's ten year anniversary of completing her Yoga Teacher Certification.  Lisa will continue to teach Nia Movement classes.  She will also teach Gentle, Basic and Restorative Yoga, as well as our Adaptive Yoga class for those preferring a more supported seated practice.

Fall offerings include:

Are you ready to move to the beat?  Nia Movement  classes combine movements from dance, martial arts and healing arts in an aerobic workout designed to help move your body your bodies' way. Open to all levels we move to give our bodies, minds and spirits - flexibility, agility, mobility, strength and stability. Our focus is exploring movement as we move for fun! Join us on Monday's at 5:30 pm, or on Wednesday's at 12:00 noon.

The Monday 4:00 pm Adaptive Yoga & Movement class incorporates gentle yoga, Ageless Grace and Nia.   Come explore a new way to condition your body and brain while using a chair for ease and stability. We focus on building neuroplasticity, physical strength, agility and balance through supported movement.

Basic Yoga classes are offered Monday and Wednesday mornings from 10:00 am - 11:15 am. These classes are designed for beginners to explore the fundamentals of yoga while allowing those with a practice to explore the poses more deeply. 

Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes offer movement through poses in connection with the breath. Vinyasa Flow Yoga builds strength, flexibility and stamina.  Level 1 classes are Mondays from 7:00-8:15 pm and Thursday Level 1-2 from 5:30-6:45 pm.  

Our Men's Only Gentle Yoga class is growing.  We do a mixture of floor based stretching poses, standing, and chair poses.  Our goals are to move our bodies way to gain strength, balance and agility.  We also practice breathing techniques for pain and stress management.  Come join us on Tuesdays from 12:30-1:30 pm.  

Our Restorative Yoga class meets on Wednesday evenings. Join us from 5:30 - 7:00 pm for a blend of yin and restorative yoga along with guided meditation.  Restorative Yoga is a lovely way to take time out and be gentle with yourself and your body.
