Mondays and Tuesdays at 10am
Sleep in a little and head over for an hour of good vibes and self care at The Balancing Flamingo Yoga Lounge, followed by complimentary cup of coffee from The Morning Owl Coffee Bar with friends! If you’ve gotta dash – we get that! You can take a small cup of coffee to go on the house too! 🙂
Often times, we jump out of bed and rush to start our day, focused on the endless tasks ahead. With this “tunnel vision” we don’t give our bodies time to catch up – which can cause stress, anxiety and general unease. This bi-weekly class is a beautiful opportunity to recalibrate the alignment of mind, body, and breath before heading into our busy day, or as a treat on our days off!
This class is a slow paced beginner’s flow – an excellent stepping stone for new students and also great for intermediate/experienced students looking to fine tune their practice. Fundamental principles of alignment of the body will be introduced, and and breathwork in a flow of beginner postures linked together by rhythmic, meditative breathing.
You will be introduced to many yoga postures through step-by-step verbal description and demonstration. Emphasis will be placed on understanding, safety, and stability within each pose- gaining strength and balance. Gradually these poses will be linked together into a slow and gentle flowing sequence.
This class is appropriate for all skill levels, even those who have never tried yoga! You’ll will end class feeling refreshed, renewed and restored and ready to take on whatever the day has in store!
Wednesday’s at 8pm
End your evening with an hour of “me time,” relaxation, and healing at The Balancing Flamingo Yoga Lounge! Reduce stress & anxiety while improving your flexibility and circulation. You will be guided through peaceful, powerful, slow paced yoga flow that will allow your heart and mind to calm, open, and relax. You’ll move from pose to pose gently, creating space through lengthening and stretching your body, while allowing your breath to connect each movement together fluidly. You’ll then flow into a restorative series of postures, ending with a relaxing meditation, full savasana with lavender scented eye pillows. This class is appropriate for all skill levels, even those who have never tried yoga. You will leave class feeling refreshed, renewed, and restored – and your body will thank you for taking this hour for important self-care.

“In case you’re unfamiliar with Patanjali’s eight limbs of yoga, they’re basically a yogi’s eight-step guide to leading a meaningful life. The first two limbs, Yama and Niyama, are about integrity and self-discipline, respectively. Asana (movement) and Pranayama (breath) don’t even come into play until the third and fourth limbs, which just goes to show how much of a spiritual practice yoga really is. And yet, I’m going to defend wine here: If goats, wine, or nudity bring you closer to Pratyahara (limb number five, loosely translated to “withdrawal from the wild stress-ball of a world we live in”), then shouldn’t it be OK to incorporate them into your yoga practice? I say, YUP.” (Source here)
