If you have looked for a yoga class and have been scared to try, this is the class for you! Learn the basics of yoga in a group of people that are in the same place in their yoga journey. Each week will start with meditation and move into basic yoga poses to build confidence in your practice of yoga. This class is for folks who have little to no yoga experience!
Intro to Meditation and Pranayama
Meditation and Pranayama involve concentration and breath. Meditation is a practice of cultivating awareness of our habitual thought patterns, and pranayama is a practice of refining our breath and increasing awareness of pranic flow. They work together to create meditative awareness and conscious breathing patterns to guide you in your asana practice and in life.
We will explore three practices; discussing, performing and reviewing each type provided. No experience is necessary and all levels are welcome.
Intro to Sun Salutations
There are several varieties of Sun Salutations. We will breakdown one type of sun salute. Each posture will be explained and practiced individually allowing the student to grasp the value of each pose. Then the student will perform the postures consecutively allowing for the meditative aspect to be revealed.
Intro to Chakras
Chakras are wheels of energy within each of us. There are seven major chakra points within the body. We will explore each point and discover a posture to help open and balance.

Well Nourished Woman Lectures
Come and join Kamie in exploring your womanhood. What does that mean to be a woman today? Where do we find our strength and compassion? Internal balance and relaxation are essential for a women’s health, whether we are bringing a new life into the world, being inspired by others around us, or anchoring to our truths from within. In this evening talk, we will focus not only on physical health but also mental clarity and focus, emotional stability, and spiritual wellness.
Well Nourished Woman is for everyone who wants to be more aware of their life, personal growth, hormones and reproductive health overall. Our menstrual cycles play an important roll in our emotional needs and how we create comfortable transitions into menopause and our golden years. We will also focus on factors that contribute to our hormones’ health and relationship building with our partners, families, friends, and ourselves.
What do women really want? A night to build community, nourishment for our souls, and some time for ourselves! Class will be followed by an Ladies Night Yoga Class.

Sangha means community in sanskrit. This is a class to bring people together to practice, to learn and to share. The class will start with a nice flow that builds strength and increases flexibility.

The two sister sciences, Ayurveda and Yoga, work together to create the perfect set of poses for each constitution.Ayurveda is one of the oldest medicines still practiced today. It focuses on the three constitutions: Pitta, Kapha, and Vata. Each person contains a bit of all three in themselves, but each dosha (constitution) has its own time of day, time of life, and season.We will move through a practice that follows the season. Pitta’s season is in the summer, Vata’s is in Winter, and Kapha’s takes place in the Summer. The class will begin with a short lecture about the bare bones of Ayurveda and how it overlaps with the practice of Yoga. We will then move into an hour practice that fits with the constitution of the season. All yoga abilities are welcome and you don’t need to have any knowledge of Ayurveda.

Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation or yogic sleep. It is one of the easiest styles of yoga to practice and is the state before sleep. There are numerous mental and physical benefits that come from the practice of this ancient method of meditation. We all have stresses in our lives and we need tools to learn how to release tension and truly relax. Yoga nidra is a simple practice to prevent both the mental and physical damage that can come due to stress.
Some of the benefits of yoga nidra.
Heals Trauma: tension release and relaxation in a safe space.
Delta and Theta brain waves: helps us to reach the deeper state of sleep, creativity, inspiration and spiritual connection.
Reduces Stress: help us to release stress and anxiety.
Reduce Chronic Pain: gives our body time to rest, recover and restore, decreasing inflammation and improves immune function.
PMS Symptoms: improve wellbeing, anxiety and depression by learning tools to apply and practices based on intervention.
Better Sleep: insomnia and sleep deprivation contribute to mental disorders, stress, and immune health.
We will begin class with some basic movements and breathing, and then settle into our yoga nidra. We will practice in a reclined position. No experience necessary.
Dharma doesn’t need to be your job or career it is simply your souls true purpose, what YOU were meant to bring into this world. In this workshop we will use yoga, meditation and journaling to find our souls true calling. After class you will use your dharma code as a mantra to enrich every area of your life. Bring a journal or notebook and stay late for tea and chit chat.
Give yourself a break from your busy demands and relax with some reflection, support and self care. This class begins with guided meditations to create awareness, inviting inner guidance to connect with your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. After the guided meditation, we will share what we witnessed about each area of the meditation in a safe and supportive environment. You may share as little or as much as you would like with no expectations. Then relax in a restorative pose and receive a facial massage with lovely local oils, Marma Therapy (**like acupressure) and vibration therapy with a tuning fork to calm your mind and promote a restful sleep. This class will close with the Metta (loving kindness) meditation to join our energy with the world around us. Relax and enjoy.
This class was designed from the various therapies that Kamie has been trained in over the last 21 years. During this time, she had the pleasure to study many different modalities. This class focuses on Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy, integrative yoga therapy and Marma therapy.
The significance of 108, renowned mathematicians of Vedic culture viewed 108 as a number of the wholeness of existence and according to yogic tradition, there are 108 piths, or sacred sites, throughout India. There are also 108 Upanishads and 108 karma points, or sacred places of the body. Traditionally, malas are used for counting as you repeat a mantra or a prayer, much like the Catholic rosary. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.
Join us for this energizing but meditative practice. We will begin class with stetting an intention for our practice and then flow through 108 Sun Salutation and end with savasana. All are invited to practice, basic knowledge of the sun salutations is recommend but doing all 108 is not required. If you find that you can only do 10-108 you may still participate in this meditative practice. Join us for refreshments after our practice together in our new Soul studio!
