Start out 2020 with Jacquelyn Nash at a special New Year’s Day House Flow. The class is suitable for all levels, starting out slow and working your way up to a flowing pace that is just right for New Year’s Day. Finish up with some restorative postures for rejuvenation and a short meditation to set the tone for a new beginning. The class is by donation, with a suggested $20 donation, and all proceeds will go to Ulster Immigrant Defense Network
The Yoga House is thrilled to offer, thanks to the generosity two anonymous donors, two scholarships for unlimited classes for the duration of 2019 at both of our locations in Kingston. This is a need-based scholarship, and our intention is to offer the practice and benefits of yoga to those who would otherwise be unable to financially pursue and develop a practice in the environment and with the support of a yoga studio community. Applicants can but are not required to have previous yoga experience.
Inspired by our generous donors, we are awarding the scholarships to applicants who are an active part of the Kingston community, who have displayed their commitment by donating time and service to others in need right here in Kingston.
- Recipients must attend at least three classes per week, excluding any emergency circumstances.
- If a recipient misses two consecutive weeks of practice without extenuating circumstances the scholarship will be withdrawn and given to another applicant.
- Please provide the details of your community service experience(s) in Kingston.
- In a few words, why do you want to develop a yoga practice? What about yoga speaks to you?
- What, if any, previous experience have you had with yoga? (This can include information or history you may have researched or heard.)
- How do you feel your yoga practice will benefit your life? How, and in what way?
Building off of these questions, please include a brief bio about yourself. Your application should be no more than two pages in length and include your email and phone number. Please address your response to Jacquelyn Nash & Felipa Gaudet, and send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Scholarship Application.” Once applications have been reviewed, we will ask to meet with the applicant finalists before announcing recipients.
Application deadline: March 13, 2019. Applications received after this date will not be accepted
We look forward to reviewing your application!

This program helps identify your habits, including both exercise and dietary, that may be causing roadblocks on your road to a healthy lifestyle, and reroutes you on a new track to keep your mind, body and spirit on a healthy trajectory. Through this series, you will have 4 weekly meetings that are part discussion and part personal coaching to identify that which needs to change and gives you a plan on how to do so, you will receive 4 emails a week from Dee giving you daily action items and reminders, and you have the option of purchasing a special yoga class package to kickstart your weekly yoga routine to complement your positive plan of action. (Class package included 8 classes for an additional $96, to be used during the reset and hit a target of 2 yoga classes per week.)
Through this Reset you will:

- Identify trigger foods and situations and how to work with them.
- Create goals and actively work toward them.
- Rest your digestive system after a long and challenging holiday season –which will include temporary restriction of certain food s because of their known tendency to cause inflammation and contribute to chronic disease. Food preferences and the freedom to work within your own food beliefs i.e. plant based/paleo etc.… will be respected).
