    The Other Half of Yoga


    Yin yoga is sometimes thought of as “the other half” of yoga. To truly complete your yoga practice and experience the wholeness of the benefits of yoga, consider adding this style to what you are already doing. Or, if you have been nervous or intimidated by yoga in the past, feel like you are not “fit” enough to do yoga or have some injuries that may make a more traditional yoga class difficult for you, Yin yoga is a great place to start.


    Unlike the more traditional, active styles of yoga (sometimes referred to as Yang styles), which physically focus on stretching and strengthening the muscles through movement and flow, Yin yoga shifts its focus to stretching the connective tissue of the body – the ligaments, tendons, joints and fascia. In order to do this, there is less movement and more stretching and holding poses for longer periods of time – usually 3-6 minutes. Don’t worry – you are not going to be trying to stay in Downward Dog, Plank, or Tree poses for this long! In Yin yoga, the goal is to use minimal muscular effort – so instead of using your arms to hold you in place, we use bolsters and blankets to support you, so you can relax into the stretch. Think spinal twists and seated forward bends. Many people love the meditative benefits of a Yin practice as well.



    The longer pose holds and less movement allow your mind to focus on your meditation. This is sometimes the more challenging part of the practice for some people, and others, the more freeing side of their yoga practice.

    I invite you to join us and see if Yin is your “yoga crush” as well! All body sizes, shapes and capabilities are welcome, accepted and loved. In Yin yoga, modifications are a rule, not an exception. You will learn to work with and love your body if you are not there already. I look forward to sharing my practice with you!

    Expose Yourself to the Yoga of being Nude at The Space!

    A slower paced, gentle vinyasa style class where we’ll combine the mind, body, and breathe to connect with ourselves on a deeper level. Clothing is removed at the beginning of class (women and trans participants may wear bottoms if they choose otherwise nudity is mandatory) with awareness given towards letting the masks and limitations our daily lives places on us go. All are welcome!

    • Please bring your own yoga mat, although we will have some extras available to use. 
    Taught by Vince

    Vince has been teaching gentle vinyasa yoga since March of 2016 and has been practicing for over 20 years. Vince was inspired to teach after recovering from abdominal surgery and starting his personal practice over from almost the beginning. Studying through the YogaFit system, Vince teaches a gentle vinyasa flow that incorporates balance, strength, flexibility, and power to a provide a class that is practical, accessible, understandable, and doable by individuals at any level of fitness or past yoga experience.

    Fall Fun

    Fire! Fire! Fire!

    Come on out to the October monthly meeting of the Fire Forum. Yep, the name was chosen from all of the wonderful suggestions at the first meeting. Thanks to all for submitting possible names. With so many fantastic ideas it was so difficult to select a name that expressed what we want to do… to learn about fire in a safe and sane atmosphere.

    Fall is upon us, the leaves are beginning to turn colors, hopefully the days are cooler, hay rides happen, and the bonfire is waiting. It all brings back fond memories of s’mores. The October 3rd class features Boam (https://fetlife.com/users/2103046), our very own purveyor of scary and sadistic fire. After all…Halloween is our favorite fall activity!!! Can you imagine “Towel of Terror”©? He has the scares.

    Each meeting of the Fire Forum starts with a class on a topic related to fire play. After the class we break out to practice what we have learned, either in this or a previous class. There will be several experienced fire players on hand to help you learn to Top, or to make sure you are safe to experience fire as a bottom.
