New Three Months Unlimited Package Now Available

Hi yogis. I’ve added a new package that will get you three months of unlimited yoga for $180. This is for the person that has a consistent practice, but prefers to pay by cash or check. This is a one-time purchase like the class cards, and is valid for three months from the date of purchase.

The monthly unlimited package that auto renews by credit or debit is still the best value, so for most people you’ll want to stick with that.

Check out the flyer below, and feel free to tell your friends.

Namaste

Two new Yin Yoga classes to begin in April

Hi yogis! Students from all of my classes enjoy yin as a complement to a regular yoga practice. I hear it all the time….can we do yin tonight? Until now it’s been sporadic in when I’ve been able to teach it, but I’m happy to announce that two new yin classes are coming to the schedule.

Vinyasa x Yin Yoga
Meets the first Thursday of the month. The first part of this 60 minute class we’ll flow through a series of vinyasas and standing postures. The last half will be a seated yin practice that will complement the first. It’ll be the perfect balance.

Yin Yoga
Meets on the third Thursday. This is a full hour long yin practice. We’ll begin in seated meditation, and then go through a series of seated postures that will be held for several minutes at a time.

Both classes will meet at 6:30pm at Sweet Home Spun in Pleasureville, KY.

If you’re asking yourself, what exactly is yin, here’s why it’s such a good balance to a flow based practice.

Yin is mainly focused on the area of the body from the waist down. That means hips, hamstrings for the most part, but we’ll also get into the back. Instead of working to stretch muscles as we do in other yoga classes, yin is there to help us get in to the connective tissue. That takes a lot longer to ease into, which is why we’re holding each posture for several minutes at a time. If you practice yin on a regular basis you’ll start to see new areas of your body open up when you’re in your other yoga classes!

If you’re new to yin you’ll be good to start with either one.

Yin is a practice that I’ve loved for years, and I’m excited to finally be able to share it with you on a regular basis.

Monthly unlimited of course will work for these classes, as will single classes, and the five and ten pack class cards.

If you’re regular practice is not with me at Sweet Home Spun, but you’d like to attend the occasional yin class, consider purchasing a class card. They never expire, and you can use them for any special class held in Pleasureville. Plus, you’ll be saving money over purchasing an individual class.

I hope to see you for our first scheduled Vinyasa x Yin Yoga class on April 5th.

Yoga at Sweet Home Spun in Pleasureville, KY

My all levels yoga class is set at Sweet Home Spun in a recreated Low Dutch Meetinghouse located at 6805 Castle Highway in Pleasureville. It’s a beautiful space to practice in with hardwood floors, subdued lighting, and a sheep farm right next door! I have mats, and props to get you going with your yoga practice.

We started the Monday night class over five years ago, and just last week I added a Thursday evening class to the schedule. The feedback so far has been wonderful. Thank you!

My classes are friendly to beginners, as well as seasoned students. Both the Monday and Thursday classes meet in the evening from 6:30-7:30.

To keep classes affordable you have the option to purchase a single class, 5 class pack, 10 class pack, or the new Monthly Unlimited package. That package lets you attend every class at Sweet Home Spun for $50 each month. That works out to about $6.00 per class! The Monthly Unlimited package can be purchased in person before either class with a credit/debit card, and an email address.

Sweet Home Spun at 6805 Castle Highway, is a short drive from Shelbyville, and in the heart of Pleasureville.

If you have any questions about class, feel free to reach out to me with the form below, or on Facebook.

New class launches January 25 at Sweet Home Spun in Pleasureville with new Monthly Unlimited package

I’ve got good news to share with all of my students at Sweet Home Spun. Beginning on Thursday, January 25th, I’ll add a second class to the schedule! Both the Monday and Thursday classes will meet from 6:30 – 7:30pm.

The Monday night class has been going strong for five years now, and I’m delighted to be able to give you an option to further your practice. Not only is this good for those that want more yoga, but it will also help you from missing a week when Mondays don’t fit in with your schedule.

I’m also launching a new Monthly Unlimited package that will be the most affordable way for you to increase your practice. For $50 you can attend every class at Sweet Home Spun! This will be your best bet if you plan on attending at least five or six classes a month.

The Monthly Unlimited package will be sold as a subscription with a credit or debit card, and will automatically renew on the same day each month. This package will be available for sale in-person beginning on Monday, January 8th!

With the Monthly Unlimited package I’ll process your card before class like a normal payment, and it will be securely stored with my card processing company, Square. Each month you’ll receive an email from Square that your card has been charged. There is no long-term commitment, and you can cancel at any time. No refunds for partial months.

My goal is to keep my classes at Sweet Home Spun as affordable as possible, and each class is now cheaper than ever with the new Monthly Unlimited package.

There will be a small rate increase (my first in five years) for the single and class packages that will be effective February 1, 2018. A single class will be $12.00, 5 Class Pack is $50.00, and the 10 Class Pack is $85.00. Class packs never expire.

Unfortunately, I must also announce that my last Thursday class at the Middletown YMCA will be on January 18th, however I am not leaving The Y altogether. The rest of my schedule will stay the same.

I’m looking forward to seeing everyone this coming Monday the 8th for the first class at 2018 at Sweet Home Spun, and on the 25th for the first Thursday class. See you then!

Last Class of 2017 & Dinner

Join us for a relaxing 60 minute class on a sheep farm at Sweet Home Spun in Pleasureville, KY.

After class you’ll have the option to join us in Shelbyville for dinner at La Cocina De Mama.
Single class passes are discounted to $8.00 for this event, and are available in advance. Regular yogis can also use their class cards.
Class will start right at 6:30 to get the full hour practice in, so allow yourself plenty of time to get settled before class. It’s about a 40-45 minute drive from Middletown. If this will be your first class in Pleasureville, please bring this completed form with you. If you have friends joining us only for dinner, we’ll plan to be there at 8.

Yoga Picnic at Smith Berry on July 30th at Noon

Join us for our second annual Yoga Picnic at Sweet Home Spun and Smith Berry Winery in Henry County.

We’ll start the festivities off at noon with a one hour yoga class at Sweet Home Spun (6805 Castle Hwy., Pleasureville, KY). Single classes are discounted to $8 for this special class. You can purchase online at any time, or at the event.

Afterwards we’ll head over to Smith Berry Winery (855 Drennon Road, New Castle, KY) for some fun. If you’d like to bring a dish to share at the picnic that would be great. Spare lawn chairs would be appreciated in case we run out of seating. We’ll be there by 1:30 if some people are meeting for this part only.

Wine tasting isn’t included in the price this year. They do a tasting of six wines for $6.00 inside, but that fee is waived if you purchase a bottle. They also do wines by the glass. I’ll also have water.

All Levels Yoga lands on January 7th at the Northeast YMCA

It’s been a busy last few months with the launch of the Power Yoga class at Norton Commons in September, and things are going well. We’ve all got some more elbow room, which was one of my goals for the 11:15 class, and both classes combined are reaching more students than before. One nice surprise is seeing how many people are attending classes back-to-back.

Now that we’re all setting into a routine, I’ve got the opportunity to make some changes to my schedule at Northeast. It has always been my most demanding class, and as a result it has a reputation for being too hard. My goal as a teacher is to help as many people as I can with yoga. Not to make a class as hard as possible.

With that said, I’m happy to announce the Power Yoga class at Northeast will be changing to an All Levels Yoga format beginning on January 7th. The time will stay the same, as will the duration.


NEW All Levels Yoga 

A beginner/intermediate yoga class that changes weekly based on your requests. This is a hatha class with some options to flow. Modifications will be offered, as well as more challenging variations to suit all levels. Class ends with a nice relaxation to clear your mind.


Beginning January 7, 2017 the new Saturday schedule will be:

  • All Levels Yoga – 8:15-9:25 – Northeast
  • Power Yoga – 10:10-11:05 – Norton Commons
  • All Levels Yoga – 11:15-12:10 – Norton Commons

Choose the format/time that works best for you, and I’ll see you on your mat.

Namaste
