Yoga foundations class series

with catie

Wednesdays November 7, 14 & 28 and December 5  |  6:30-7:30pm

Join Catie to explore the foundations of a yoga practice. While this class series will be ideal for folks newer to the practice, it’s also a great way for long time practitioners to slow down and reconnect to the universal principles of the poses and movements that we regularly practice in class. This will be a low-key, relatable, & fun exploration of the building blocks of poses and the health benefits of a movement-based practice.

Each class will consist of a series of warm up stretches and movements then a different focus each week which will give you the opportunity to discover and experience for yourself the benefits.

Week 1: Downward Facing Dog & principles for a health lower back

Week 2: Warrior II & the principles of standing poses

Week 3: Bridge Pose & the principles of back bends

Week 4: Seated twists as the foundation of twisting poses

This workshop series is included in our membership plans. (Members are students on a Monthly Reoccurring Membership or Annual Membership plans.) For all others it’s just $50 for the 4-class series.

The Art of Receiving with Catie

Saturday December 8 | 10am-12pm or Thursday December 13th | 6:30pm-8:30pm

The season of giving is upon us once again. The humble generosity that is part of the bedrock of the Midwestern culture is just one of the reasons it’s so awesome to live where we do.

Who doesn’t love to be the giver? As kids, we are praised for sharing our toys and learn to donate to causes that are important to us. The ability to give means I have excess. At the biological level, it’s hard not to love it…nature ensured that humans share by giving us a dose of mood-boosting endorphins every time that we do.

You know what’s not so easy? Receiving. While our culture values giving (which is awesome, don’t get me wrong), all too often lurking just under the surface is the message that receiving is somehow bad or, even worse, selfish. Most of us will do just about anything to not look selfish…which includes giving to the point of being tired, worn out, and slightly (or maybe a whole lot) resentful towards those we are giving to…be they family, friend, patient, kiddo, or client.

The thing is, giving and receiving are not two separate actions or experiences but rather two sides of the same coin. Most of us aren’t taught how to receive (there are no tax breaks for receiving a gift.) We don’t know how to honor the act of receiving, not because we don’t have the ability, but because we just haven’t practiced very much.

In order to be the vibrant, open-hearted givers that the people in our lives need we must get better at receiving.

Join Catie in this two-hour workshop where we will explore and practice the necessary art of receiving. It’s intentional that it’s sandwiched between Thanksgiving and Christmas. We know you’re busy. The hallmark of being a giver is a way busy schedule… It’s not just money and gifts that we give, we give time as well. The holiday season will be less hectic and more abundant if we are balanced receivers and givers.

This practice will be a mixture of movement, interaction with others, self-reflection and meditation. It’ll be well suited to all yogis regardless of the amount of experience with the physical practice of yoga.

Potluck + Service - Social-3.png

Potluck Brunch & Community Service Project

Many of you shared, via the summer client survey, that you'd like to be part of both volunteer projects and fellowship events at Rise. We love the sound of both of those things so much that we've figured out a way to combine them together by collaborating with Success Beyond the Classroom, a local non-profit that provides programs in the community that support children in expanding their curiosity, confidence, and creativity.

Starting at 11am on Saturday, October 6th we'll share a potluck brunch at the studio and then assemble folders with materials for the Young Authors Conference. The Young Authors Conference is one of SBC's longest running events. This service activity is easy, fun, and impactful. It's open to all ages, no RSVP required and there is no cost to the event.

Come to 10am or 12:30pm class and/or join us for pot-luck brunch and packet assembling.

Profound Relaxation | yoga NIdra workshop

With Ginny

Thursday September 27th  |  6:30-8:30pm or Saturday September 29th |  2-4pm

Restore your body and mind with this two-hour workshop designed to support deep relaxation, help you de-stress, and enhance your emotional wellness.

Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practice that helps you to break free of self-limiting patterns, emotions and beliefs so that you can live a more vibrant, contented life. It offers tangible tools to help you relax which can directly support improvements in sleep, focus and concentration, the health of the immune system as well as helping to neutralize anxiety. Most of us, at best, are deeply relaxed only when sleeping. For many of us it doesn't even happen then due to the effects of chronic stress in our day to day lives. Yoga Nidra teaches your body and mind that this quality of relaxation is both possible and accessible. Once you’ve experienced this depth of rest, it’s easier to return in the future.

Yoga Nidra is practiced lying down.  Ginny will assist you in being physically comfortable and supported using blankets, blocks and other props before guiding you through the meditation practice.  

The workshop will include restorative poses, gentle movement and meditation. It's designed in such a way that no previous yoga or meditation experience is required to participate.

 Cost for this two-hour workshop is $30 or if you are a Member at Rise the $25. (Members are students on a Monthly Reoccurring Membership or Annual Membership plans.) The workshop is the same both days and registration price is valid only for the day you select We are offering two separate times to accommodate a variety of schedules.

Restorative Yoga with Kelsey

Saturday July 21st | 2-4pm

With all the action that summertime brings, its essential to take time to slow down and take care of your nervous system. Restorative poses are one of the best ways we know how to do that! In this 2-hour workshop we'll do some movement, but the main emphasis of the practice is on supported stillness created by intentional positioning of your body and the skillful use of props. You'll not only be refreshed but you'll leave with knowledge on how to recreate restorative poses at home using things you already have like pillows & towels.
