“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. Our new Fall Schedule begins at the end of this month and we have so many special events in honor of yoga month! CHECK IT OUT…

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
