For Jo, exploring life's limitations and freedoms on the mat builds strength in character and spirit that supports her off the mat. She would like to share that experience, shining light and sharing knowledge.
Jo will be teaching Yoga Lab for Beginners to Intermediates.
Yoga is an awesome experiential activity, but can be a little intimidating. We believe that everyone can do yoga and this class will guide you in learning how to move into and out of poses in safe and effective ways. Learn the basics and then the next steps to a fully formed pose that is right for you!
Come grow your practice with us.
We hear that yoga is for everyone, but if you have experienced some kind a serious illness or a traumatic physical incident, then going to a class with people you swear are like gumby may not be the thing you are looking for.
But this class might be!! Our trauma sensitive yoga takes into consideration the events in life that cause people pain - emotional, mental and physical suffering. So in this practice we use language and poses that are safe. We are careful to use terms that are neutral and suggest poses that are not harmful.
This is a class that offers a safe space for people to get re-aquainted with their bodies and their emotions. This class is a stepping stone to becoming whole again.
A mix of poses, movement, breath and meditation will be offered. You can participate in as much or as little as you'd like. If you would like to come visit and just watch, you are welcome to do just that.
Come join us even if all you want to do is just sit in the room.
Our Faith & Yoga class will resume October 3rd at Calvin CRC.
This class is a very gentle class. So this is a great class if you are new to yoga because we introduce poses and concepts slowly. You'll have plenty of time to learn and understand. It is also a great class if you have some experience and want to get reacquainted with the basics. You'll have time to refine your movements and spend quality time looking inward. We generally do 50 - 55 minutes of poses then 30 minutes of guided relaxation and/or meditation.
Our practice is yoga, but our message is Christian. Come experience for yourself how the practices of movement, breath, and meditation enhance your spiritual life!
This is a Donation class - that means you can pay what you can afford. It is ok to come to class without contributing funds. But, if you can afford to pay for class, consider throwing in some money to help someone else out.
Join us Tuesdays @ 4:00 to 5:30 pm at Calvin CRC. Any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Vicki at (231) 775-7771.
We at Blue Horizons Wellness and at Schneider Risk Management want to thank you all again for sharing your Saturday morning with us and devoting a portion of your time to keeping our neighborhood park and beach clean. A special thanks to Girl Scout Troop 4720 for showing up in force, and to the brave parents and scout leaders who brought them!
The trash count has been tallied and here are the trashy facts:
We hope you all enjoyed the event, and we hope to see you again in the spring when we do this again!

Ashtanga refers to the “eight-limbs” of yoga as developed by K. Pattabhi Jois. (More on that in future posts).
The Ashtanga asana practice is dynamic and physically demanding. This vinyasa practice synchronizes breath and movement to produce an internal heat, which purifies the body. Ashtanga yoga is a wonderful practice for building core strength and toning the body.
The entire set of asanas (poses) is broken down into three series. Melissa will guide you through a modified version of the Primary Series (set of poses). Join Melissa today at 5:30 pm for an exhilarating moving meditation.
I would like to welcome Melissa Olinghouse!

Join Melissa for a wonderful yoga experience!
