Beginner Yoga Workshop
Saturday, April 27, 2019
1:00 to 3:00pm
Taught by Emily Winfield
$25
Sign up and pay here: https://bit.ly/2UIcsFO

Everyone you see practicing in any yoga studio balancing on their hands or positioning themselves in the bendiest of shapes were at one time, a first time yogi. Many of them probably couldn’t touch their toes at first!

But something moved them to investigate yoga further – whether it was too much stress, needing to lose weight, mending a broken heart, perhaps seeking a new beginning. Or simply, curiosity about all the fuss surrounding this practice.

And that’s all it takes—a simple step to commit to just TRY it and see how it fits your body. Once you are done with this two hour intensive, we hope you feel more comfortable and confident on your mats and at Trax Yoga.

Some things we’ll cover:

*Tips for brand new yogis
*Basic yoga poses
*Vinyasa and Sun Salutations
*What yoga is and isn’t
*Benefits of yoga
*Q & A session

Vinyasa Barre Party
Saturday, April 20
noon to 2pm
$30
Mama Bears Kombucha and gourmet cookies will be served after class, and each participant will receive a special Trax Yoga Barre bag!

Sign up and pay here: https://bit.ly/2EwIAW5
Class size is limited to 30 students.

Join Dee Gard as she leads a 90 minute Vinyasa Barre class, combining Vinyasa Yoga with floor Barre.

Floor Barre consists of classic barre exercises that have been adapted to be practiced on the yoga mat, without use of a barre. While this class is inspired by ballet, this is not a dance class! Focus is on the conditioning elements of ballet, not dance technique.

This is an empowering and energizing workout that creates long, lean, powerful muscles combined with a yoga practice designed to nourish, relax, and de-stress you.
