Yoga is a great way for a child to improve impulsiveness, help control emotions and ease stress. In a relaxed, fun and playful setting overlooking the lovely waters of Crystal Lake, students will learn tools to deal with stress and aid in concentration.

Qi Gong with Meditation Relaxation

With origins in Tai Chi, this class is an ancient form of exercise which focuses on the mind with healing techniques and gentle moving standing poses to connect our body and mind energy as one. Through this practice, we can heal not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. Class will be held on the beach, weather permitting.


Enjoy a serene class overlooking beautiful Crystal Lake! Through yoga poses, students will develop greater flexibility, strength, body awareness and balance. This practice blends yoga styles and will include meditation, breathing practice and relaxation techniques!

Monday Morning Chanting

Chanting is a practice that can bring you to a state of internal peace when you use your voice in unison with others to raise your vibration and everyone in the room. It can work to move stuck energy and bring you joy and happiness. Come and be open to finding you, chant and leave smiling.


Meditation is like a shower for your mind. Take time to still your thoughts and relax as you study various meditation techniques. Through breath, smell, sound and movement, you decide which style of meditation resonates with you. Bring blanket or cushion, yoga mat, water bottle and towel to class.

Kundalini Yoga

Take your yoga to the next level. This class will take you on a journey to find joy and peace within yourself. Use breath, mantra and movement to bring yourself to a state of balance. Practicing in a group amplifies the experience. Each class will include meditation and occasional Gong relaxation. Bring a cushion to sit on and a yoga mat.

Moving Positive Affirmations

When we combine spoken word, movement and breath, our body and mind come together to embrace the spoken expressions. Repetition of high vibrational positive thoughts can bring a change to your mood, your attitude and your stress level. We will repeat as a group, positive affirmations and move in synchrony to shift your vibration and bring more positivity into your life. This happens when we believe we can. Believe in love, believe in letting go of fear, believe in me, believe in healing are just some examples of class topics.
