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.

Art & Yoga While in practice, the yoga practitioner moves their body in different ways than they would in their day to day activities. Choices are made for each pose, right down to the movement and positioning of the fingers. It can be argued that these are creative choices. Yoga is a form of creativity, of self-expression.

Many yoga students express feeling relaxed, less stressed, more “connected”, or even something akin to a spiritual release following a yoga practice. Artists, or even those who refuse to label themselves as such, but who dabble in creativity, often express similar feelings in the process of creating art.

To take this a step further, we are thrilled to bring art and yoga together for an evening of self-expression, relaxation, connection…….and any other –ions you may be looking for!

Our Journey through Art & Yoga evenings will feature a Vinyasa yoga practice, led by Amber Upson (RYT-200), and an art project, led by Art Therapist-in-training Traci Schneider. Yoga mats and props will be available to borrow if needed. You will be provided with all art supplies needed for the art project, and will leave with your finished art piece.
