“I have fallen in love with the Saturday yoga class...This class is the perfect way to start your weekend- peaceful, grateful, centered, and loosened up. The instructor Mary Beth is heaven sent! She really has a talent as a yoga instructor. She can get her class focused and in the zone in a matter of seconds, her commentary is uplifting! The class itself is the perfect balance of meditative and challenging. I cannot ask for anything more for this class.“ ~ MA

You will explore a variety of yoga asana and breathing practices to experience how our yoga practice nourishes our bones and when we nourish our bones, we nourish our bodies deeply.

Here is what past participants have said about their experience:

The fact it was pre planned assured I participated during this time in my life. Mary Beth’s quiet embodiment as a basis for her teaching made it squarely land and stick. I learned some key things at a doable pace that I have incorporated into daily practice.

The most valuable aspect of this workshop was the “tone” that Mary Beth set & used. Very nurturing and emphasis on improving practice from where each student is.

“I really enjoyed the group. It’s wonderful to have the 1:1 attention without too much pressure of an actual private session.”

“The tiny little individual tips, whether to me or the others in the group, were so helpful. I was able to really see it when it’s somebody else vs. myself.”

“Six weeks was the perfect timeframe.”
