In this workshop on the Chakras System lead by Corinne Gervai of Euphoria Yoga in Woodstock we will explore what these energy center are, where they are located, what the sounds, senses, colors, elements, symbols that are associated with each one are and how they relate to various aspects of our lives. We will also explore how to weave this information into an Asana (Yogic Postures) class that relates to the various Chakras.
Corinne Gervai is the founder and Director of Euphoria Yoga in Woodstock and has over thirteen years of teaching experience in New York city and locally. She received her Yoga Teaching certification from the Jivamukti Yoga School in the year 2000 after completing the full one year intensive certification program lead by Sharon Gannon and David Life.

Corinne offers much gratitude to her main Yoga teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life as well as to all the wonderful teachers that she takes classes and workshops with which continue to inspire her. Corinne offers deep thanks to her beloved students, family and friends that enhance her life daily and her aim is to do the same to the lives of as many beings as she can reach.
We’ve all heard of the widely known physical and mental benefits of a consistent yoga practice. We know that when we hear the word “yoga” we think of flexibility, stress relief and mindfulness. But for some, making that step to experience those well-known benefits is not as easy as walking out the door and getting to a class. Often people feel intimidated and unsure of joining a group class for their first experience. Many questions arise: What type of yoga should I try? What’s with all the breathing? If I’m not flexible, can I do yoga? Maybe you’ve already been to a class but felt too uncomfortable and unsure of yourself to return.
This 3-hour interactive workshop is designed to quell those hesitations and answer any and all questions that you might have about starting a yoga practice. We will cover the following topics:
The entire workshop is designed to encourage dialogue, questions and discussion for any and all topics. If you have a question, we are sure that many other people do, so ask away for us all, teachers and students, to learn about the hesitations that arise. We want to provide you with the foundation of basic yoga principles in order for you to feel comfortable when you enter a yoga class for the first time. Join 500-hr Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT), Amy Reed, for this open forum for any yoga-skeptics.
We have all necessary equipment (props, mats, straps, even water), so bring just yourself. Because we will be doing some postures, please wear comfortable, loose clothing.
(Please note, it is NOT necessary to take this workshop to come to a Beginner’s Class, which we offer of Monday and Friday nights and Thursday mornings.)
*3 Classes to be used within 30 days of first class at the studio.
By attending Leigha’s regularly scheduled House Flow class on Tuesday evening, December 13, 6-7:30pm, you will contribute directly to the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock who are busy preparing for a frigid season of protest. Read more about their efforts to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline on their website.
This effort is inspired by a collective of yogis from the Hudson Valley. Visit the indiegogo campaign to read more about this movement of inspired yogis.
Hi Flying Yogis & Yoginis!
On Sat., Sept. 17th, we’ll hold our Flying Flow class at BSP’s upstairs springy, bamboo-floored dance space. This way, we can spread our wings and fly (and fall!) without fear of putting a foot through someone else’s rib cage or noggin. Not that we don’t thrive on the intimacy of our own space… It’s just that, this’ll be an adventure.
If you park at The Yoga House, just cross the street and find the red double doors in the corner of the giant brick building. That’s the back door to BSP. It’s got a sign that says, “Standard” above it and an arrow pointing down to it! — Official address is 323 Wall Street. The doors will be unlocked and someone will be there to guide you to the second floor dance studio.
I’ll be unlocking The Yoga House at around 7, so please grab a block, a strap, and a blanket if you don’t have your own. We’ll have to drop props back off before Felipa’s folks start coming in, around 9:15 + we’ll want to get our ninety minutes in, so arrive on time!
I’m really looking forward to the chance to play around with a lot of room for movement
Peace, peace, peace,
This event is full. Please email us if you’d like us to host another “Play”shop.
It’s your favorite yoga class and the teacher is guiding toward a peak pose, one you’ve been wanting to try for months! You eagerly get your “oomph” ready, give it a few tries, and just when the breath and body start to align and the pose begins to make sense, the class moves on to something else (much to your dismay!) and it’s time for savasana.
In this “workshop,” we’ll playfully dig in to poses you like and want to try… be it a deeper bind, a balance or an inversion… in a relaxed environment, over the span of two hours, so you’ll have just the time you need to put the pose-puzzle together for yourself.’
Questions and open dialogue are encouraged, and students will be taught to work together to provide assists and support. It’s designed to be organic, fluid, fun and informational… AND ALL ABOUT PLAY!
