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 3-4 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.
We 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. We look forward to sharing our 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!

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.
Open Relationships, including Polyamory, can be a wonderful paradigm. A continuum from simply complimenting an existing healthy relationship all the way out to creating an intentional community. Join Barak & Sheba as they cover key points and tips for forming lasting relationships, maintaining clear communications, active and passive additions; along with the most common triggers and negative issues that can occur. We will also outline our discoveries that have streamlined our relationship agreements and strengthened our relationship. All throughout, there will be time to ask questions to learn more about themselves and their relationship preferences.
(These Tips and Tricks are the keys that we have found to maintain open communication and are suited for all relationships - not just non-monogamous ones!)
Barak & Sheba are pansexual, polyamorous, married partners who reside in Columbus, Ohio; with some growing cats. While successfully navigating almost 20 years in an open relationship, they have written numerous short stories, articles, and essays on Polyamory, Kink, and Sacred Sexuality. They present classes for Kink, Leather, and Vanilla audiences. Occasionally, you can hear them talking about all forms of creative sexual expression on their podcast, BS’ing with Barak & Sheba.
Together they are the founding members and owners of Adventures in Sexuality (AIS), a fun, frolicking, PanPolyBSDM/Kink group in Central Ohio. Through AIS they are Coalition members of the NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) are active supporters of The Sexual Assault Response Network of Central Ohio (SARNCO). They currently promote Pansexual BDSM Educational Events in Central Ohio – including the Central Ohio Perversion Excursion (C.O.P.E.) and Winter Wickedness.

You miss the feel of rope sliding through your hands - or over your body... or maybe you want to spend time with other rope people, learning, sharing, upping your skills, or just ridding yourself of Cabin Fever!
