KIDS' YOGA CLASSES AT FIREFLY
Laura of Love & Light Kids' Yoga will be offering classes at Firefly on Saturday mornings in August and September. Please visit their website for details and contact information if you have any questions.
HEART OPENING WORKSHOP with Barbara on Saturday the 20th. Practice heart openers to release tension, as well as upper back strengthening to improve your posture. Investigate safe ways to find more depth in your backbend, and push your limits as much as you choose. All levels are welcome, as there will be many options and progressions. 12:30-2 pm, $22. Just join; no pre-registration required.
FUNKY FLOW MASTER CLASS 1:00-2:30 ($35) & ART OF ADJUSTMENT 3:00-5:00 ($40) with Missy White on Sunday the 28th. $65 if you'd like to join for both of these special classes led by a world-class master teacher. You are welcome to request an invoice and register ahead of time or just show up.
FORM & FLOW WITH COACH SETH RETURNS
Join Seth as he wears his run coach hat at a series of workshops revolving around performance-based flow for better running and movement patterns. These 70-90-minute classes are back at Firefly on August 26th, September 23rd, and October 14th. They meet at 6:30 pm, and you can follow this link to Black Matter Training's site for more details and to register.
BEACH RETREAT IN OCTOBER
The 8 Limbs of Yoga: A Practice in Movement | New Smyrna Beach | September 30-October 2
Join Seth and Holly at an AirBNB in NSB for a weekend of study of the foundation of our yoga practice and how running and yoga might feel akin to one another. We’ll journey through the limbs with opportunities to practice, contemplate and relate, and go for a run or two - if you want to! Meals will be provided. The cost is $675 per yogi, but if you reserve your spot by August 22nd, we’re offering an early bird rate of $625. Contact us to receive an invoice. Reservations are non-refundable, but if you find you cannot attend, you are able to transfer your spot to someone else.
On Wednesday evenings at 7:30 we offer yoga for expecting mamas. Connect with community and care for your body as you practice and focus on the growing relationship between mom and baby.
Our Sunday morning $5 GIVE classes meet in the studio at 11 am, led by a rotation of Firefly teachers. Your donations each quarter benefit a usually-local charitable organization. For July, August, and September, your donations will go to support the Vietnamese Association of Physicians, Dentists, and Pharmacists of Florida. Special this quarter, we will have one GIVE class taught by Chau and Holly in both Vietnamese and English on Sunday, August 28th! We are so grateful for your support of our classes that help us share your kindness and generosity.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR ASHTANGA
We have some monthly ASHTANGA classes on our schedule. In general, they are a modification of the primary series, but sometimes it will be the entire practice. You can practice with Jeff on Wednesday nights and also find a 2nd Monday class at 11:15 am. Regular class rates apply. Our Saturday 11 am ASHTANGA class now happens weekly; on the fourth Saturday of each month, it's the full primary!
STAY & PLAY
Sometimes we want to learn or practice poses that might lend themselves to more time than what we can spend in the context of a regular class. We hope to find space for that kind of work in these short, post-class sessions. On occasion, we will offer these on a specified date for a specific pose. Just stay after class for fifteen to twenty minutes or so, and we will try to meet you just where you are in a shape and help you to move forward in it. These are free or for a donation to the studio if you feel compelled to pay something, but we are just happy to hold space and grow with you in practice! No registration necessary.
OUR ORLANDO CLASSES AT FLO SPACE & FUMC ORLANDO
Even though our building is in Ocoee, we love to share yoga downtown and are so excited to be able to do that! We are grateful to offer classes in these beautiful, magical spaces! Please be sure to bring your own mat.
You could join us at Flo Space Orlando at 1000 North Magnolia Avenue for Monday evening classes at 6:30 pm. Regular class rates and packages apply. These classes will run through the end of August.
Monday night classes will restart at the First United Methodist Church Orlando at 142 East Jackson Street on Monday, September 12th at 6:30 pm. We'll practice in the third-floor gym with an incredible view of downtown. Free parking is available in the garage under the church off of Jackson. Just take the elevator up and walk straight out into the gym.
THINGS TO KNOW AS WE PRACTICE TOGETHER IN THE STUDIO
Please bring your own mat to practice! This goes for any props you like to use, too! If you choose to use a studio prop during class, please use the cleaning supplies near the shelves to make sure our props are ready for the next yogi. Thank you!
Join us in-person ONLY if you’re feeling 100%! If you are experiencing ANY symptoms of any kind - fever, sore throat, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, etc. – we will love to welcome you WHEN YOU FEEL BETTER!
