Class Descriptions

At SoulSpace, our instructors pride themselves on being able to adapt to any student, regardless of experience level. There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do yoga…it’s all good. Every body is welcome! Private instruction available on request.

All Levels Yoga  Perfect for beginners as well as the seasoned yogi. A series of poses (asana) designed to relieve stress and connect movement with breath (vinyasa) while increasing strength and flexibility. Attention is paid to foundational principles of yoga as well as alignment. The moderate intensity class will provide a challenging workout but can be modified for those seeking a gentler experience.

Baby & Me …open for babies who are 6 weeks to pre-crawling. We will build your baby’s fine and gross motor skills while supporting language acquisition, body awareness, and neurological development. Yoga will help promote your baby’s digestion and build their social-emotional learning (SEL) skills with other young friends in class. As the parent attending, you will have the opportunity to connect with other new parents, bond and fully be present with your baby, and take stretches to ease postpartum aches and tension.

Breathe, Move & Meditate  A class designed to help reduce anxiety and stress – something we all might need! We begin with breath technique, move on to some VERY gentle movement -think Yin! – and finish our class with at least 15 minutes of guided meditation together.

Calm Birth Meditation Classes  This meditation method bring us back to complete breathing so we can free anxiety & fear. It releases muscle system tension that restricts nervous system function. This promotes prenatal bonding and encourages optimal fetal development. Meditation increases a person’s ability to cope with the sensations of labor from a place of calm & empowerment. It centers the mediator throughout labor and helps them connect with their baby.  This practice has been known for centuries to have extraordinary healing potential. It strengthens the immune system and supports the release of joy-inducing & pain relieving hormones. It can be used in any kind of birth, from home birth to cesarean. These mediations are inclusive of all gender expressions and can be used at any point during pregnancy or birth. It is never too early or too late to start, and there are no medical risks involved in meditation. These practices are not only for pregnancy & childbirth, but can be carried into every breath of life. Children whose caregivers model healthy coping strategies, self-care practices and interpersonal connectedness will be more likely to embody these attributes as they grow.
