“That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.”
― Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

Happy September!

It’s National Yoga Month and we have TONS in store for you! Reminder, we will be closed on Monday, 9/4 only. Wishing you all a Happy Holiday and great year to all those heading back-to-school.

SPRY = Stability Plus Resistance Yoga.

With (or without) the use of weights, the essence of SPRY is the weaving of movements together in a unique way, like a dance, encouraging new awareness, long lines, stability and cardio. The workout was created to satisfy all levels of yoga and fitness, and can also be fulfilled without the 5 lb. weight. 

FREE DEMO on Saturday, Sept. 2nd 2017 @ 10am

Only 3 spots left – Must pre-register through our Glofox scheduling platform.

Spry Yoga will be added to our Fall Schedule beginning in October!

schedule-change

We are so excited to bring you a new and improved schedule beginning the last week of September. Look for a few changes and a couple of new additions. As always, our Glofox scheduling platform will have the most current information and our Facebook page posts daily updates. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come…

Fridays: Our final Happy Hour of the Summer is on Sept. 1st. Happy Hour will break for a few weeks and be back at the end of the month with a new time of 5:30pm, taught in rotation by a few of our recent teacher training graduates. Cost is still $5 cash only, which will be donated to victims of Hurricane Harvey through Thanksgiving. Also coming to Fridays – Warm Flow at 9:30 am beginning 9/29.

Saturdays: Sat. morning classes are back with a new line-up! SPRY Yoga at 10am and a new Warm Flow class at 11:30am. Bi-weekly AcroYoga classes will also be added to Saturdays at 1pm. All this starts in October! 

Sundays: Our PiYo class is making a switch from Sunday mornings to Thursdays at 5:30pm! Our Sunday beginner class will remain and a prenatal yoga 6 week session will follow at 11:30am in October. Our Sunday evening restorative vinyasa class has been swapped out for a Warm Flow at 7pm starting Oct. 1st!

Mondays: Morning Warm Flow is making a comeback at 9:30am beginning 9/25! Our Mat Pilates will be moving up a bit to 5:30pm. Our 7pm and 8:30pm classes will remain.

Tuesdays: Our only change will be the beginner class moving up a bit to 5:30pm beginning 9/26.

Wednesdays: Quite a few changes mid-week! We are excited to now offer Chair Yoga at 10:30am beginning 9/27. Warm Power-Hatha at 5:30pm. All Levels Vinyasa Flow at 7pm and a Reiki-Restorative at 8:30pm. A little something for everyone on Wednesdays!

Thursdays: Our Gentle Flow class will be cancelled…last class will take place on 9/7. PiYo will take its place at 5:30pm. If you haven’t give it a try, don’t miss out on this fun fusion of Pilates, Yoga and cardio. Great workout! All other classes will remain the same, only will be adding a little heat to the 8:30pm class for a Warm Flow.

Hot Yoga: We are beyond ecstatic to announce that we are preparing to rip out the carpets in the downstairs studio and lay down a new hardwood floor…all to bring you some fun, new Hot Yoga Classes! They will take place at 5:30pm, Mon-Thurs. Our 7pm Hot Yoga classes will be moving a little to 7:15 pm to accommodate. All classes will be 1 hour and still $10 cash only, separate from the Main Level Studio. Class descriptions and instructors will be announced soon!

We hope you are as happy as we are with the changes! By offering a more consistent and uniformed schedule, we think it well help create a better flow both in the lobby and the studio rooms, as well as with parking. As always, should you have any feedback or questions for us, please don’t hesitate to email us at TwistedMonkeyYoga.com

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out.” ―Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart.

Please note that we will be closed on Monday, September 5th for Labor Day. Our Summer schedule is going strong and will run through most of Sept. Look out for some new classes (and old favorites) in our Fall Schedule starting the week of Sept. 18th! Most current schedule can be found online: Click Here. Here’s a sneak peek…
  • Yoga in the Park! Due to the hot Summer temps, yoga at Rockledge Park on Saturdays will be moving up to 9am beginning Aug. 6th. Classes will run through the rest of Summer and a final date will be announced in Sept. We are happy to share that we raised close to $300 in July for oneorlando.org! This month’s donations will benefit PAWS. Thank you to all who have supported us so far!
  • Full Moon Yoga! Our August Full Moon Yoga class will take place on Thursday, August 18th at 8:30pm at Rockledge Park. (If inclement weather, class will be held at the studio.) If you haven’t checked out our new Full Moon Yoga Schedule, please visit our website. Proceeds will benefit Matter of Trust.
  • Playing with Gravity! Join us on Saturday, Aug. 27th for a 2 hour workshop with Kimmy & Rob focused on Partner PLAY! Grab a friend or sign up solo to explore how gravity plays a huge part in yoga itself, and how that translates into our bodies. Come to get grounded with gravity and learn through Play! For details and registration: Click Here.
  • Class Cards! Please note that we are no longer selling the regular 5 class cards for $40. However, you may still purchase 10 classes for $80 until the end of Summer. While punch cards will no longer be sold after September, they will still be accepted until the end of the year. This Fall we will introduce new discount packages and class registration available through our website. We will still continue to accept cash payments in the studio. Thank you for your patience and support during this transition.
  • Fall Classes and 108 Yoga Malas! To kick of Autumn, join us on Thursday Sept. 22nd (the Fall Equinox!) at 7:15pm, as we once again attempt (and succeed!) to get through 108 sun salutations. After our successful Summer Solstice 108 sun salutation celebration in June, we are now happy to offer these Yoga Malas every season! More information can be found on our 108 Yoga Mala page. This event will also kick off our new Fall Schedule which will include: Surfset, Kettle Yoga, Warm Yoga, Lunch Hour Yoga, Pre/Postnatal Yoga, Kids’ Yoga, Tween Yoga, Meditation Flow, and lots more! See our schedule for more information: Click Here.
  • Save the date! Registration for The Twisted Monkey’s inaugural Yoga Retreat is now open. Spots are limited and going fast! For those who would like more information, we will be offering a Retreat Information meeting on Monday, Aug. 29th at 8:30pm. We will discuss the itinerary for the 3 day weekend and answer any questions you may have. Those already registered are encouraged to attend too. The meeting should take no more than 30 min. You can also visit our Yoga Retreat page for more information or email us at twistedmonkeyyoga@gmail.com.
  • Lost and Found! If you have left behind a water bottle, yoga mat or other personal item, please make sure to check the yoga studio. Items not claimed by the end of each month will be recycled. The lost and found is located in the hot yoga ladies’ changing room or see an instructor. Thank you.
