{Drop-ins most certainly welcome.}

with Jerrice Baptiste

Wednesday nights, 7:15 – 8:45. By donation: a suggested $8 to $12. (Or you may use your class card!)

What does it feel like to enter the silence?  What does it feel like to be still?  What treasures lie within these realms? Connecting with our higher self can only happen when we fully embrace stillness and enter the silence. 

The practice of Authentic Poetry helps us to:

  • Access the infinite silence and stillness within and without
  • Connect with the energy of the inner body with guided meditation
  • Be present with our unique inner voice
  • Uplift our spirit with the writing and sharing of poetry

Be Your Own Valentine

An Evening of Yoga, Wine and Chocolate

Saturday, February 11th – $20

6:00 – 8:00 p.m.

“To practice kama [pleasure] yogically means to be fully present with whatever you’re experiencing.” – Sally Kempton

Every time we come to our yoga mats is an opportunity to treat ourselves with kindness, mindfulness, and love. That “blissed out” feeling we often feel after a yoga class comes not only from moving the body, connecting with breath, and clearing our minds, but also from the joy and pleasure of treating ourselves well.

On Saturday, February 11th, join Vinyasa yoga instructor Allison Gould for a special evening that honors the love we give to our selves. The evening will begin with an extra juicy, warming, rejuvenating vinyasa flow – designed to leave you feeling simultaneously enlivened and relaxed.

Following the practice, we will share in a celebration of some of the greatest pleasures of life: wine and chocolate. A simple indulgence for the sake of pleasure, joy and love.

Treat yourself, bring a friend, and join with our community for an evening that honors the sweetness of love. Email to pre-register: info@theyogahouseny.com
