Every Wednesday and Saturday, 9-10:00 AM, MST
$5 minimum Venmo or PayPal, not required but much appreciated.
2/3 The Central Channel
"Know that your body is only as young as your spine is healthy." Tias Little. We will tap into the potency of the central channel of the spine (Sushumna Nadi.) Spending time mobilizing and stabilizing the spine, and learn the importance of balancing the vertebra and intervertebral spaces.
2/6 Virasana: Pose of Virility
Virasana translates into Hero Pose. The Yogic hero is meant to overcome their inner turmoil, and this asana does just that! We will work up to and in this pose to bring blood flow and nutrients to the feet, ankles, and knees.
2/10 Put Your Best Foot Forward
The feet are our foundation and also the furthest from our head and so often overlooked. In this class, we will work with foot reflexology and release built-up constriction in the feet so that you may put your best foot forward.
2/13 Throat Purification
The Visuddha (throat) Chakra is directly relevant to the immune system; the root sud means to cleanse or purify. We will work with several throat opening poses and pranayama (think out of the box) to get lymph moving and irrigate blood through the neck region.
2/17 Hip Openers: Doorway to Space and Freedom
Broken down into two parts, this class will help prepare you for forwarding bends and backbends. Through hip-opening poses, you will release the pelvic floor, bring stability to the legs, and cultivate awareness of the root chakra.
2/20 🎼Upside Down You're Turning Me
Inverting part or all of the body is an essential part of our practice: They help increase circulation, strengthen the back and core, improve balance, stimulate brain function, and even help with depression.
If you are not a Diana Ross fan and don't want to go upside-down preparatory poses or alternatives will be offered.
2/24 Cultivating Ahimsa
Ahimsa is the part of the first limb of the eight-limbed Yoga Practice meaning; non-violence. Violence can creep up on us in subtle ways when we feel hurried, impatient, afraid, frustrated, or harsh with ourselves. How we treat ourselves is, in truth how, we treat those around us. We will challenge ourselves to turn off that inner-critical voice for this hour-long asana practice.
2/27 Side Body Spaciousness
Stretch and release your waist, ribs, and side trunk through side-bending poses. Imagine your torso is a river; our goal is to create space and slow down the sometimes torrential flow.
Use support whenever possible: Blocks, Straps, Blanket, pillow or bolster and sometimes a wall or chair.
What Students are Saying
"I’ve been taking Cherie’s yoga classes several times a week for the past four years. Cherie is the most knowledgeable, professional yoga teacher in the county. Cherie “brings it” to every class. She wants each one of her students to have a positive experience in class and offers lots of individual attention. Her classes are appropriate for all skill levels, from absolute beginners to experts.
Yoga can be challenging, but the rewards are great and go far beyond the physical. The more you practice, the better you will feel—body, mind, and spirit".
"I never considered myself a “yoga person” and couldn't’ imagine the benefits of yoga until one of my friends “dragged” me to your class 3 years ago. My friend assured me I would love you and your teachings, and she was SO RIGHT!
Your knowledge, enthusiasm, and love of yoga (not to mention your infectious laugh that I ADORE) have benefitted me in more ways than I could have ever thought or imagined! My body, mind, and soul have all been transformed by your teachings, and I cannot thank you enough! I truly love my mat time with you (my body craves it), and I always leave your class feeling better, calmer, lighter, happier, centered than when I walked in the door.
You are a truly remarkable woman, and I am blessed to have you as my yoga teacher!"
Namaste, Kim C.
