We're meeting at Anderson Japanese Gardens every Friday this summer from 9:00-10:00AM! Ally has designed a class called "Nature & Nurture." Each session will begin with a walking meditation and include a sun salutation sequence, a series of yin yoga postures (deep stretch), a guided relaxation meditation, and mini Reiki healing. After class, we welcome you to join us at Fresco at the Garden for a coffee or juice! This will be a self-care class focused on stress relief, emotional healing, and connection with nature and community. You'll be surrounded by breathtaking natural landscapes and soothing waterfall sounds: a perfect recipe for peace and serenity.


$20/drop in [OR] use any class pass or membership at 815yoga.com/pricing. Yes, you can use your existing membership! This is an addition to our regular weekly schedule so all class passes apply. BONUS: attendance grants you full access to the garden for the day, so you can walk around after class and enjoy for as long as you like!


Please bring a yoga mat, yoga props (optional), and water.

STUDIO POLICY UPDATES⠀As of today, June 1st, 2021, face coverings will be optional in all classes. Capacity will remain the same to ensure plenty of personal space (50% indoor / 100% outdoor).⠀We want the yoga studio to be a place of safety and peace for you to process this community-wide transition at your own speed and comfort level, and, ultimately, we hope that we can provide an environment that fosters stress- and anxiety-relief, rather than promoting it. We want to handle this transition with compassion and sensitivity, and we welcome your feedback. All of our teachers are always here to listen and offer support if you need it.⠀We encourage your autonomy and support you in trusting your intuition. This is the practice of yoga! Please listen to your own inner guidance and stick to what feels right to you, whether that means wearing a face covering or not, practicing at home or in person, inside or outside. At the same time, we ask that you lovingly support your fellow yogis in their autonomy, as well. We're all in this together. Let's show up for one another with kindness and patience.⠀REMINDERS: Pre-registration is mandatory. Class registration deadline is 1 HOUR before class. Cancellation deadline is 2 HOURS before class. Late cancellations will be charged $10. Shared yoga props are now available for use. Yoga mats are available to rent for $3.⠀Sign up for a class at 815Yoga.com/schedule

Happy Saturday How are you feeling, right here, right now? Really: take a full breath in. Let it go. I don't know about you, but that's the first deep breath I've taken all day.⠀It was a LONG winter, wasn't it? I feel like I'm coming out of hibernation. Still a little creaky, squinting into the sunshine, equal parts eager and hesitant. This life is so complex. Sometimes it's beautiful, sometimes it's hard, and sometimes it's both at the same time. I'm having some of the happiest moments of my life these days, mixed right in with some of the hardest, and I know I'm not alone. If you feel the same way, I'm here, hand in hand with the 815Yoga team, to hold and empower and uplift you through it all.⠀We have more than 25 classes on the schedule every week, some incredible upcoming events and local retreats, 1:1 sessions for holistic healing, and a loving community within which you'll find supportive, like-minded friends to listen and empathize and offer joyful company. Wherever you are on your journey, we have created a beautiful space for you to heal and grow in body, mind, and spirit.⠀If it's your first time back in a while (maybe longer than you'd like to admit) or your first time ever at 815Yoga, send me a message for 50% off your first month or session. The hardest part is always working up the motivation to take the first step. But the feeling that comes when you do something good for yourself is life changing. That energy spreads into every area of your life -- your sleep improves, your body craves healthy foods, your relationships get stronger, abundance starts to come your way in everything you do. The perfect time to start is always now. Go to 815Yoga.com to join us.⠀Sending you so much love,Ally Troia
