The first day of autumn was September 23rd, and that means we updated our schedule!  Cari's class is now a FLOW moved to Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm, and Tristan has picked up the Monday evening 7:30 pm slot!  See below, but be on the lookout for NIDRA NIGHTS, which also take place on Wednesdays, September - January.  FLOW classes are ON BREAK THOSE EVENINGS.  Also, Thursday's STRENGTH & STRETCH class has moved from 5:30 pm to 11:15 am.


On Wednesdays in October, Julie will lead an expanded version of BREATHE classes.  These hour-long classes will begin at 11:15 and feature meditation, yoga philosophy and history, and a gentle flow.  Julie envisions this for people who would like to take a step beyond chair or restorative yoga into a carefully-guided practice, or for students who'd like to learn a little about yoga outside of asana.  Regular class rates apply.

Often referred to as "yogic sleep," yoga nidra is a time of stillness and guided meditation.  Brandi and Kathi are passionate about this practice and happy to offer it at Firefly on the first Wednesdays of each month October through January.  Join them on October 4th, November 1st, December 6th, and January 3rd 7:30-8:30 pm.  The ladies will alternate months teaching, and regular class rates will apply.

Beth will lead us in another Qi Gong class on Friday evening, November 3rd, from 6:15-7:00 pm.  Come explore this traditional Chinese medicine practice that integrates movement, meditation, and breathing to improve mental and physical health.  $5, no registration needed.


Maybe you've heard us mention it in the studio; we're trying something!  It's really just to have a little fun; we've started 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!  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.  We are also on Instagram @a_curious_bunch!

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.  

On Saturday mornings at 8:30 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. 

Join Jack on Sunday mornings from 8:30-9:20 for a yoga class conducted in chairs.  It's just for a $5 donation.  Please share about this class with your friends with whom you'd like to the beautiful, powerful practice of yoga but who might do better in a class with the support of a chair. 

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.  This time, your donations support the Lewy Body Disease Foundation of Central Florida.  We are so grateful for your support of our classes that help us share your kindness and generosity. 

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. 

We are excited to offer a special series of classes that combine yoga with live music and food.  Stay tuned for details on the next one!  When it happens, it'll be $27 for one and $19 for a plus one.  $27 Fight for One | $19 Flight Plus One (just one plus one per regularly-priced attendee, please)

Laura of Love & Light Kids' Yoga offers classes at Firefly, but they are now on hiatus for the summer.  Please visit their website for details and contact information if you have any questions.  

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.

Please bring your own mat to practice if you can!  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!  We want to SHARE LOVE NOT GERMS!
