YogaPalooza ~ It’s like chilling at the beach, but without getting sand in your Yoga pants.

Our 9th Annual YogaPalooza begins Wednesday, July 6, 2016.

If you’ve never experienced YogaPalooza at Peaceful Hands Yoga … it’s my time to share special classes, following classic and not-so-classic Yoga themes. All in the spirit of bringing balance and ease. A little irreverent, sure. Sometimes goofy. Always fun.

Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio 

228 Warren Street (in the Sedwick Racquetball Club) in Orange, Virginia

18 classes.  7-1/2 weeks.

Yup, more classes than ever! Here they are …

Times are 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. for Monday & Wednesday classes. Check the calendar for the times of the other classes. (There will be no classes on the 4th of July.)

WEDNESDAY, JULY 6 ~ OPENING NIGHT … Our first classes in YogaPaloozaVille!

MONDAY, JULY 11 ~ RAINING CATS & DOGS Some of our favorite asanas – all sorts of cat poses and up & down dogs – mixed up together.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 13 ~ SUN & MOON FLOW …  Sun & Moon Salutations will fire you up without burning you out.

MONDAY, JULY 18 ~ PEACEFUL WARRIOR, PART I, GROUNDING … Embrace your inner power with a focus on alignment, grounding, and Warrior poses.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 20 ~ PEACEFUL WARRIOR, PART II, FLOWING … A flowing practice that celebrates the strength of the inner Warrior.

MONDAY, JULY 25 ~ HEART FLOW … Let Yoga open your heart. This practice nourishes heart energy, opens up the shoulders, and sends your radiant heart smiling up to the sky.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 27 ~ LET’S TWIST AGAIN … “We’re gonna twisty twisty twisty till we tear the house down.” I think you know where this class is going.

MONDAY, AUGUST 1 ~ REGGAE Reggae and African beats provide the rhythm for an enlivening and inspiring practice.  Registered Students Only. 

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3 ~ SPINE AWAKENING … Your spine can move in 7 directions — but only if you let it. Renew the suppleness of your back and refresh your spine.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 6, 9:30 a.m. ~ “SWEET 16” … One of my most beloved teachers, Margaret Leary, joins us with a special Resistance-Flexibility-Strength-Training (RFST) workshop, sharing 16 focused exercises that can help renew suppleness in the body’s connective tissue and fascia. These exercises are a wonderful addition and complement to your Yoga and other activities. (Bring your mat and dress as you would for a Yoga class.) (90-minute class.)

MONDAY, AUGUST 8 ~ “GOOD VIBRATIONS” Focusing on the deepest energy of the body, we’ll use Yoga, acupressure points, and humming vibrations to encourage good health from top to bottom.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10 ~ MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR YOGA  Yeah-Yeah-Yeah, it’s back for its 9th groovy year!  Registered Students Only. 

THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 5:30 p.m. ~ YOGA-RATÉ … Join Black Belt & Yoga practitioner Dan Paterson as he leads you through a Karate practice for self-empowerment, defense, and protection, created especially for YogaPalooza. Both Karate and Yoga strive to find inner peace – they’ve got a lot in common and Dan knows because he does both. Give it a try! (No Yoga mat needed, but dress as you would for a Yoga class.)  

MONDAY, AUGUST 15 ~ HAPPY, HIPPY HIPS … Perfect for hippies, hipsters, and hip cats. It’ll make your hips happy, too.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17 ~ YOGA NIDRA  Ahhhh! Enjoy an amazing Yogic deep relaxation practice in the classic tradition.

MONDAY, AUGUST 22 ~ VINYASA, PART I, “ROCK” Get your Yoga moving with a breath-led, refreshing rock-steady practice.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24 ~ VINYASA, PART II, “ROLL” … This slow flow Vinyasa practice can lubricate sticky joints and refresh body, mind, and heart.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 4:30 & 6:00 p.m. ~ YIN … Holding Yin Yoga poses for many focused breaths allows you to let go and say “ahhhh.” This traditional practice is the perfect peaceful finish to another summer in YogaPaloozaVille.
