Weekly Classes


Thursday Restore & More  6:30 – 7:30 pm

Rotation: Denise, Jeanine, Stacy

Location: Groll’s Family Fitness Center – 30 N State St, Preston, ID

Level: Mixed Level – Great for beginners & experienced yogis alike.

Class Description: This is the yummy kind of yoga, a bit of work – just enough to get your muscles gently warm, lots of stretching, and breathing. Class is finished off with deeply restorative postures that will help ease you into a better nights rest. I incorporate the use of essential oils & light touch during savasana to encourage a deeper sense of relaxation after each class.

 

Friday Yoga Flow 9-10 am

Location: Groll’s Family Fitness Center – 30 N State St, Preston, ID

Level: Mixed Level

Class Description:  You can expect to work in this class. Flowing vinyassas are a series of postures linked together with dynamic movement and breath. Flows are connected with a sun salutation, each round increasing in challenge. After thoroughly warming the body, we move into patterns of deeper holding, a balancing series, core work, and possibly a bit of play – incorporating arm balances or inversions. Everything is broken down into steps, allowing the beginner or advanced yogi alike to participate.  I encourage everyone to work at a level they feel challenged, but that best suits their body’s needs for the day.  This is an empowering class. It will leave you feeling balanced, open & energized. I incorporate the use of essential oils & light touch during savasana to encourage a deeper sense of relaxation after each class.

Course Description: The EmBody Wellness & Yoga 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program is an opportunity for those who would like to deepen their practice or for those who wish to share their passion by becoming an instructor.  Completion of the 200- hour training program will allow participants to earn a teaching certificate.  This course is an in-depth training program that meets the requirements and standards of the Yoga Alliance, an internationally recognized non-profit credentialing system for yoga instructors.

This foundational program will help you develop your yoga practice by acquainting you with a deeper understanding of the practical applications and philosophies of yoga. We will cover the 5 educational standards required by Yoga Alliance for certification which include:

  • Techniques, Training, and Practice of yoga techniques
  • Teaching Methodology – communication skills, addressing needs of individuals in a group setting, principles of demonstration, observation, assisting and correcting.
  • Anatomy & Physiology
  • Yoga Philosophy/Ethics & Lifestyle
  • Practicum – or opportunities during training will be provided to practice teaching as the lead instructor, give and receive feedback, observe others teaching, and assisting students while others are teaching.

Students are encouraged, but not required to have a regular personal practice before taking this course.  It is not necessary to be an advanced practitioner to become an instructor. This program is designed to equip the student with all that is needed to safely lead a class of their own by the end of training.

Special Summer Classes:


Yoga Under the Stars

Yoga Under the Stars has become a fun summer tradition that my yoga friends and I have all come to look forward to.  Join us for an evening get-away up beautiful Maple Creek Canyon. The stars are simply stunning here.  You can often see the Milky Way stretching across the sky.

Class is designed to help you wind down for the evening and release tension.  We work at a gentle to moderate level with lots of stretching. I use essential oils & light touch at the end to encourage deeper relaxation. Savasana was never so blissful!

Things to bring:

  • Yoga Mat
  • Blanket/Pillow
  • Mosquito Repellent
  • Sweat shirt or long sleeves recommended to slip on as the evening cools down.
  • Optional: Blocks, and a Yoga Strap.
