Yoga in the outdoor studio in summer

The word yoga means connection. Connect with your breath, body, mind and soul in a small class setting. We start each class by asking, “What does your body need today?” With 5 to 6 students per class, your practice is tailored to your needs.

Taught following hatha yoga traditions, each class includes pranayama (breathing techniques) as well as asanas (postures).

Sessions run at various times throughout the year. For details, subscribe to the newsletter (fill in your info at the bottom of this page) and follow @OMhalewellness on Facebook.

Introduction to yoga – By request for 4 or 5 friends or family

You want to try yoga, but are uncomfortable with big studios and classes. Or perhaps you want to find a more personal relationship with your newer yoga practice. With this intimate intro to yoga series, you’ll learn the basics of breathing and postures. You’ll have opportunities to ask questions to explore and develop your yoga practice.

Monday evenings at 5 p.m.

Wednesday evenings at 5 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.

Girls’ night out yoga + wineMessage for private class or join the next scheduled class on Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Unwind with your friends in your yoga pants on a Friday night. Ease out of your week and into the weekend with time with your besties as you connect with your breath and a variety of postures. Includes a complimentary glass of wine while you practice (because it’s Friday). Suitable for all levels, including beginners.
Space is limited to 5 yogis. $25 per person, or grab all 5 spots for $100 (saves you and your friends, $25!).

Benefits

Physically yoga reduces muscle tension, can improve your flexibility, build muscle strength, perfect your posture, prevents cartilage and joint breakdown, protects your spine, betters your bone health, increases your blood flow, drains your lymphs and boosts immunity.

Mentally yoga increases body awareness, sharpens attention and concentration, and calms and centers the nervous system by moving you from the sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system, or from flight-or-flight to rest-and-digest. This reduces anxiety and eases you into a more relaxed state.
