August at MSY!

If you’re wondering where July went, you’re not alone. It flew by! But summer isn’t over yet, and MSY has full slate of special events to help you make the most of these longer days while they last.

We’re kicking off the month as usual, with our Relax and Recharge Open House. Take some well-deserved time for yourself! Bring a friend who would love to relax with you. This event is donation based. Come in anytime between 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Recharge during a Reiki session; relax while enjoying the DoTerra AromaTouch hand technique, or gain insight with a Tarot card reading!

On Sunday, August 5th, we’re going Back to Basics! Whether you're brand new to yoga or a seasoned yogi, this workshop will help you find your way into or fine tune the most common yoga poses, offering adjustments and assists. At the end of class, I’ll take requests for poses we haven't yet covered. This is your chance to ask, “What’s up with this pose?” Nothing is off limits!

After rave reviews from her last I Am Fabulous! class, Board Certified Counselor and DoTerra guru, Paula Hatten, is bringing the class back for those of us who missed out. On August 11th at 2pm, learn to use essential oils to release blocked emotions and start living your best life. Paula will guide you through a series of essential oil applications to help you release emotions. Then choose two rollerballs to go home with to continue your emotional journey. We know you’re fabulous, and after this class, you will too.

Whether you’re brand new to inversions or already incorporate them into your practice, you won’t want to miss our Intro to Inversions workshop on August 18th at 2pm. Stacey Fox will teach you the tips and tools to practice inversions safely and effectively. We'll warm up with a short flow intended to get your body ready to get upside-down. Afterward, we'll talk about alignment and practice getting into headstand, forearm stand, and handstand. Plenty of assistance and modification is available for each pose, including our FeetUp trainer that allows you to experience the benefits of headstand with zero pressure on the head and neck.

August 18th is a double header! At 6pm, Jen Sunderlin and Paula Hatten will present a Chakra Workshop. They’ll walk us through an in-depth look at each chakra and discuss how to identify imbalances, how they manifest as physical symptoms, and what to do about it! We’ll learn how to balance the chakras using essential oils, yoga asana, mantras, crystals, music and more! After our discussion, we will relax into a chakra meditation, then you can make an essential oil blend rollerball to help the chakra that is speaking to you most! Additional chakra rollerballs will be available for a special price of $8.00 at this workshop only.

If you’re troubled by low back pain, as many of us are (myself included), you won’t want to miss my Yoga for Low Back Pain workshop on Sunday, August 19th at 5pm. In this workshop, we'll address the causes of low back pain and explore strengthening poses to prevent it as well as stretches to relieve it.

Kindred Vibes will continue to offer Crystal Reiki Sound Baths on Fridays at 6:30 pm. Check our Facebook and website events for specific information.

We also have a few changes to the schedule this month. “Lengthen & Strengthen,” formerly on Thursdays at 7pm, have been discontinued for the time being. A second “Morning Flow” class has been added on Tuesday mornings at 9am. Bookmark our calendar to stay up to date.

See you at the studio!
