Happy Hour Yoga!

One hour Hatha Yoga class for adults! Let’s unwind after work and join me for a weekly one hour yoga class. 


April 3, 10, 17, 24

4 weeks for $40
$12 drop-in’s

Let the Spring Celebration theme carry into the adult class. This may seem a little crazy, but let’s take a moment to imagine our yoga practice to be like a spring garden unfolding and growing with each time we enter our practice space. Each week we will build and grow within our practice, like an internal garden. Starting out at out base, like a seed in the ground with a focus on grounding our practice in our feet, legs and seat in our first week together. From the ground up we will grow into a twisting, and cleansing practice; like the cleaning, clearing and aerating of our garden’s soil. Next we’ll bring our attention to opening our hearts from front to back. In heart openers and forward folds, we can allow our inner heart-flower to blossom and shine. With each week, and each time we meet with our practice space an opportunity to tend your inner garden presents itself. Over time new insights will emerge, about yourself and the world around you. Re-connecting breath, mind, and body through the movement and poses of yoga.

In this hour long Hatha yoga class we can unwind to create a peaceful transition from work life to home life. My style of teaching generally follows a predictive rhythm from class to class. This rhythm allows us to recharging with gentle flowing sun salutations, stabilize and strengthen in standing poses, reconnecting with forward folds and rinsing it all out in a few twisting poses.  Incorporating a breathwork  practice enables us to set our stresses free. Ending class with a short guided meditation, helping to ease the mind and body during our practice together.

Musical Monday Yoga

Moving though a flowing series of yoga poses, set to a weekly playlist. With each week’s practice we’ll enjoy a calming series of yoga poses and songs as we set the pace for our week. We’ll have a little fun with some songs, moving and grooving into good moods and positive outlooks; sink into poses with relaxing songs, and challenge ourselves playfully throughout our practice. Our playlist will vary week to week, with occasional live, local artists to enhance our practice together. Fusing the meditative practice of live musical performance, awareness in musical creation and the moment of body and breath.  
Our first live, acoustic performance is set for April 14, reserve your spot today as spaces are limited!

Incorporating a variety of super heroes like the Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Cat Woman and so many more! We will pretend to be superheroes with our yoga poses, play a game of rescue as if we really are these superheroes. Going a bit further with the superheroes, we will explore the world of real world superheroes, our very own community helpers like fire fighters, police, and emergency rescuers to name just a few! Exploring their daily adventures, we will explore how they too are real life superheroes. Just when you think we have fully explored the wonderful world of superheroes, there is more! We will conclude our superhero exploration with a bit of self-reflection on how you too can be a superhero, yes YOU. We can all be a superhero in our own special way.

A Special Children’s Yoga Play – Date, December 14th December 11, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — juliezielinski @ 7:10 pm

Children enjoy an afternoon of Yoga and games while the parents enjoy some much needed down time from the rush of the holiday season. The children experience an extended children’s yoga class involving a mini-yoga class, 2-3 yoga themed games and a small craft. November 30th was a blast, crafting our own gratitude tree, playing musical yoga mat, and we made use of the walls for a few poses! Come prepared for an afternoon yoga fun and game!

In the spirit of gifting this holiday season, the registrations from the yoga play-date will be donated to  an organization that is special to me, Big Brother Big Sister of Central Mass. Having been a volunteer mentor in the past, I have seen the positive effect a mentor relationship can have on a young child. The big/little relationship helps the child for a life-time, providing a positive role model for the child.  Registration from these classes will be donated to Big Brother Big Sister of Central Mass, to be given to the families and children supported by this mentor agency. 

register online

please RSVP by December 12th

$15/child; $5/additional child of same family

I hope to see you on the mat at
Earthsong Yoga Studio
