FORM & FLOW WITH COACH SETH

​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.


ACRO YOGA IS BACK

We know some of you have been excited for the return of INTRO ACRO YOGA classes with Barbara, and now is the time!  Join her at 12:30 on Saturdays October 1st, November 19th, and December 3rd.  Classes are just a regular class pass and last an hour.  No experience or partner needed.


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.


SPECIAL WORKSHOPS WITH SUSAN 

PARTNER THAI TOUCH CLASS - Saturday, October 15th, 12:30-2:30.  No need to pre-register; just bring a friend.  $36 per pair.  Two-hour hands-on application.  Learn simple Thai touch techniques and restorative asanas to share with your partner or friend.

TEACHING CHAIR YOGA - Saturday, November 12th, 12:30-2:30.  Again, no pre-registration required.  $42.  Learn how to teach a full chair yoga class to students or family members to make yoga accessible to those who would benefit from practicing in a chair.   

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.  For October, November, and December, your donations will go to support the MIRA Foundation who work to provide guide dogs for the blind.  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.


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!
