Happy May to Everyone,

I’m amazed how quick April has come and gone and we’re in the month of May. This is a month where we celebrate Mother’s Day, Graduations, Ending of the School year, and so much more.  I do love this month as the weather is usually beautiful and everything has bloomed. Glorious indeed!

I decided our theme or Focus for May would be to Nourish our Minds. Nourish has a lot of meaning and is a word that applies to our lives from the inside and out. Nourish means the following; 1) To Provide with food or other substances necessary for life and growth; feed. 2) To support or encourage, 3) to strengthen or promote; foster.

We have 50,000+ thoughts per day and What we feed our mind affects our body. You might read that sentence again! It’s absolutely true. The more we learn how to practice loving and kind thoughts the better for our WHOLE self.  We practice this in Yoga as we also learn how to let go of the negative, anger, worry and tension.  We can begin to learn that nourishment of the Mind is so important. The more mindful we become with ourselves then that will affect how we treat others. This can help reduce anxiety, depression, low-self-esteem etc.

I look forward to seeing you in class as we practice Nourishing our Minds and our Whole Selves. Please also notice that FitYoga is growing! I’m so grateful to have some exciting new classes and new class series to offer. (Pre-natal) (Chair-Yoga), (Kids Camp) (Mindful Meditation).

PRE-NATAL – 8 Week Series (Pre-Registration is Required)

I strongly encourage those that are pregnant to consider the Pre-Natal series in June. It’s such a wonderful way to connect to our bodies while our bodies are changing. We learn life skills, Mindfulness and Self-Care which is vital during this special time.

POWER – YOGA (DROP IN) Mondays – 7:30

The Power Yoga on Mondays is more intense if you’re seeking more of a workout. It’s really what you put into the practice is what you get out. Come join us as we sweat and flow with dynamic movements using our breath.

Chair Yoga – 5 Week Series (Pre-Registration is Required)

If you have limited mobility from an injury, illness, or age join us for our personal, breath centered chair yoga classes. As you practice the yoga poses, adapted to a chair, you can focus more closely on breathing, mindfulness, and flexibility, and enjoy all of the benefits of regular yoga practice
