NEW SHIRTS, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS!

Some of us have been waiting for some new studio swag, and it's finally time!  We've partnered with two long-time friends to create a special-edition logo and offer a variety of styles and colors through a print-on-demand online store.  Go to brandyoutees.com to check out tanks, tees, and long-sleeved shirts with a special Firefly design created by Todd Cook of Petrol Emotion!  Visit his site to see more awesome artwork.


ADDING ANOTHER STRENGTH & STRETCH TO OUR SCHEDULE

Because some folks are loving it, Sue is adding a second session of STRENGTH & STRETCH to our weekly schedule!  The use of bands is a great way to complement our regular asana practice.  Evening friends have the opportunity to join her from 5:30-6:00 pm for a quick burst of work.  Regular class rates apply.  


WINTER SERIES OF KUNDALINI YOGA WITH BETH STONE

CURIOUS ABOUT CURIOUS?

Maybe you've heard us mention it in the studio; we're trying a new thing!  It's really to have a little fun and also to eventually support our studio; we're starting a polling group.  Folks who join the group will receive a message a week with a link to what we hope will be an interesting poll.  The following week, the results, along with a new question, will be shared.  It's free for Firefly friends to join, and eventually we'll invite other people to be part of the group for $7 a year.  We hope you'll be a part of this, because we think the more the merrier - and the more informative!  If you'd like to put your curiosity into action, please click this link to join the mailing list.


KIDS' YOGA CLASSES AT FIREFLY

Laura of Love & Light Kids' Yoga is offering classes at Firefly on Saturdays at 3:00.  Please visit their website for details and contact information if you have any questions.  


OUR ORLANDO CLASS AT 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 a beautiful, magical space!  Monday night classes are offered at First United Methodist Church Orlando at 142 East Jackson Street at 6:30 pm.  We 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.  Class is all-levels and donation-based.  Please be sure to bring your own mat.  


PRENATAL YOGA
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.  


​​SUNDAY GIVE 
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.  We are so grateful for your support of our classes that help us share your kindness and generosity. 


OPPORTUNITIES FOR ASHTANGA
We have some 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 happens weekly; on the THIRD Saturday of each month, it's the full primary!  We also offer a special FIRST SATURDAY variation for the Saturday morning class!  We'll get warm and then workshop a few poses from the primary series.  This will give both new and experienced students a chance to learn more about the many things at play in each posture and to focus on alignment with adjustment and some dedicated time to each shape.  Following the workshop-style part of class, we'll shift into a Mysore-style open practice for about thirty minutes so you can round out your time on that mat in a way that suits you.  Regular class rates will apply for these special practices.


MISSY WHITE RETURNS IN AUGUST

Missy will visit us on Sunday, August 6th to offer her ART OF ADJUSTMENT WORKSHOP from 1-3 pm ($45) and her fun FUNKY FLOW CLASS from 3:15-4:45 pm ($35).  No need to register, just join us the day-of.  You may take both classes for $65.  Be ready for some expertise and a challenge from this master yogini!


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.


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!
