Spring & Summer Sunday Smorgasbord

Get excited!  Sundays are about to bring a beautiful change around here!  Beginning this Sunday, May 15, our 10:45am yoga class will feature a rotating roster of teachattachmenters…each offering their own enchanting practice and something NEW for you every week!  We’ll keep you up to date with the special things they have in store for you on Facebook each week; but rest assured…you should just keep the Sunday morning class ON your calendar because every week will be fantastic!  In May, we start with Jen Lubas, Bev Colton and Cassidy Carre.  Here’s what Jen has in store this weekend:

“I am teaching yoga this Sunday at ocean earth wind fire in Phoenixville (subbing for the amazing Susan Madden-Cox)! Class is at 10:45. There will be grounding yin poses, a standing healing meditation and essential oils. Treat yourself!”

NEW Yoga Class- Start Your Week Off Right Yoga, Mondays @ 7:30am!

Start Your Week Off Right Yoga with Bev
Mondays @ 7:30am
Mondays.  The bane of our existence.  The start to the crazy five-day runaround before the blessed relief of the weekend.  Well, not anymore.
What if you could start your week off right with the kindest, most gentle practice to help you not only wake up your body and mind but align your soul with its truest intention?  Come to gentle flow yoga practice with Bev every Monday at 7:30am to wake yourself up to the tasks of the week, set your intention for accomplishing your goals, and charge your body and mind with the energy to do it.  This 6 week course, May 16-June 20 will help you guide yourself into the week with the clear intention and pure sight needed to lead the most productive, authentic week of your life and teach you skills for maintaining your practice well outside the confines of the yoga practice so you can be the best version of yourself, week and after week.
Pay for all 6 classes online or on Monday, May 16 for only $78 OR drop in for $15!
It’s the just-right kick-start you’ve been waiting for.hello monday

The full cost of the retreat, room, programming and meals is $730 per person. (Travel to and from the Vineyard is not included.) Carpooling will make the road trip an exciting part of the journey. I promise you a profound experience of love, laughter and light!
