Yoga with Baby
Every Tuesday at 12pm

The first rule of Yoga with Baby is: take care of yourself. If your little one needs to sleep, feed, or cry this is a safe space for you to be you. The main intention of the class is simply to connect with other parents and babies. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to tone and stretch your muscles and breathe deeply. Plus, you will get to play with your baby! You will learn very sweet and gentle “baby yoga” moves to promote digestion, enhance circulation, and elevate joy. Babies experience the world through the feelings in their bodies. The better their body’s energy is flowing, the happier and healthier the baby. A happy baby makes a happy momma, pappa, and family! Yoga with Baby is taught by Marysia Do.

Yoga with Baby is FREE on December 6th & 13th, 2022. So come check it

Partner Yoga Workshop
December 10th at 12pm

Think: using people as props. You'll team up with your partner to get more leverage in forward folds, lift in backbends, and stability in balancing poses. Plus, we'll work on a few simple adjustments that you can use to help each other in poses. This workshop is suitable for all levels. So grab a partner who’s in your bubble (significant other, friend, family member, roommate, etc.) and let’s have some fun! This workshop will be held online and in-studio. Cost: $20 per person.
