HELLO FRIENDS! June is here, and we are almost halfway through 2022! June is always busy with graduations, weddings, summer vacations, and warmer weather. This month, we have several fun events with some of your favorite teachers and some special guests.
We have a full June schedule of classes to help keep you balanced in between those backyard barbecues and warm weather adventures. Eshe is back and will be teaching Wednesdays; 9 am Yin, 10:30 am Therapeutic, and 5:15 pm Beginner’s Yoga. Chair Yoga is also back on Fridays at 10:30 am. Another addition to the schedule each week is our Sunday Community Circle. Sundays at 7 pm, gather in community to share space and prepare for the week ahead. With all of the things going on around us and all of the tragic events this year, taking time to be together feels like the best way to acknowledge and create space for healing and connection.
Thank you for continuing to share your practice with us and for bringing your energy and light into the studio each day. The space is only walls and a floor until you arrive, and then it comes to life day after day. Wishing you a great month and many happy moments shared with those who make you smile. See you in the studio! With Gratitude, Lorissa

Eshe Boyette I am forever a student of the mind-body-spirit connection. My traumatic childhood lead me down a path of unhealthy behaviors and addictions, but through a consistent yoga practice, I’ve become open to healing. With this practice, I find myself more grounded and present in my body with more self love and acceptance each day. I believe yoga provides people with the ability to meet themselves where they are at. As a teacher, I hope to encourage people to find ways to honor themselves on the mat, so that they are more easily able to celebrate their unique needs and identities off the mat. Join Eshe at... • Chair Yoga: Fridays 10:30 - 11:15 am • Yin: Wednesdays 9 - 10 am • Therapeutic Yoga: Wednesdays 10:30 - 11:30 am • Beginner's Yoga: Wednesdays 5:15 - 6:00 pm
