SUMMER SCHEDULE UPDATE
As of the solstice on the 21st, please note that we have some shifts in our schedule. Notably, our Tuesday and Thursday morning classes meet 6:30, 8:45, and 10, and we'll have just one FLOW class on Saturday mornings at 9:45; we've still got Saturday ASHTANGA FLOW at 11! On the 4th of July, we will have JUST ONE CLASS, the 10 am FLOW - No evening classes that day in Ocoee or Orlando. Happy Independence Day!
BLINDFOLDED YOGA FLOW
Join Lindsay for a special class on Friday evening, July 1st at 6:15. Remove outside distractions, feel the subtleties of the body, and turn inward with this sight-free flow. What to expect: Feel your way through a one-hour yoga flow and be greeted with a sprinkling of sound bowls and other sensory treats along the path. What to bring: Your own blindfold (eye mask, scarf, bandana, etc.), mat, and your usual comforts. No pre-registration, regular class rates apply.
BREATHE CLASSES ON WEDNESDAYS IN JULY
BREATHE meets for just forty-five minutes, 11:15 am-noon for these four weeks. Join Holly for breath work, meditation, long stretchy holds, and lots of adjustments if you choose to accept them. Regular class rates and packages apply.
YOGA MAT PANEL DAY
Stay after GIVE on Sunday, July 10th (or just show up at 12:15!) for a brief session to discuss the benefits of different yoga mats. A yoga mat can be a pretty big investment, and there are lots of options. We thought it might be fun to take some time to discuss why we love our own particular mats and maybe consider some pros and cons of different brands. We'll chat, have snacks, and do a little practicing to test drive some different mats. It's free, and we also have some things to give away! No sign-up required; hope to see you for this casual event.
FOR THE LITTLE FIREFLIES IN JULY
Pre-registration is required for all kids' classes. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 8th and July 15th, respectively, to be included in these classes...
We are offering some classes for young yogis this summer: Mondays July 11 and 18. From 1-2 pm, it's LIL YOGI & ME, geared toward kiddos 3-7 years old. They can bring a parent or other friend for an hour of togetherness and breath and poses. Regular class rates apply for this sweet time.
Also on these Mondays, from 2:30-4:00 pm, you might drop your child (ages 6-10) at Firefly for KIDS' YOGA PLUS. There will be time for breathing, singing, stretching, and journaling, along with a craft activity. The cost for this class is $23.
ASHTANGA YOGA SECOND SERIES WITH JEFF ON JULY 16th
On Saturday, July 16th, in place of our usual ASHTANGA FLOW class, Jeff will guide us through the second series. This series focuses on heart openers, and is, in reality, designed to be practiced by yogis who are familiar with the primary series. Plan for two hours, from 11 am to 1 pm, for thorough guidance through this special class. Regular rates apply.
VIRTUAL PRANAYAMA WORKSHOP WITH DEBBIE PARSONS ON JULY 17th
We are honored and grateful to host Debbie Parsons again this year for a workshop on breath work in yoga. She will join us from 1-4 pm over Zoom to share her knowledge of pranayama, and it'll be done with her always-magical spirit. Debbie connects what we know about the body with these centering practices, and we will have opportunities to breathe together. Please send us an email to register for class. We'll send you and invoice for the $18 class and a link to join as the date approaches.
UPCOMING THAI TOUCH CLASSES
Save the dates for some summer Friday classes! On July 22nd, Lindsay & Susan will team up for RESTORATIVE YOGA WITH SOUND. 6:15-7:45, $28, only 12 spaces, so email us at email@example.com to reserve your spot.
On August 12th, Susan & Jennifer will offer a class with two pairs of hands for THAI TOUCH from 6:15-8:15. This one is $25, and will also have only 12 spaces, so as above, please email to let us know you'd like to join. Both classes will welcome meditative stillness.
Stay tuned for details on a couple of events we will host in August, a HEADSTAND CLINIC with Holly on Saturday the 6th and a HEART OPENING WORKSHOP with Barbara on the 20th.
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 April, May, and June, your donations will go to support the Tri Sigma Foundation at ERAU which in turn supports the March of Dimes. 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.
Tuesday evenings at 6:30, a rotation of teachers guide YOGA CHAPEL at First United Methodist Church Orlando at 142 East Jackson Street. Expect opportunity for worship and fellowship along with a practice tailored to the group of students in attendance each week. SUMMER BREAK AFTER MAY 31st.
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!
