Weekly Gentle Yoga
10 - 11am CT / 9 - 10am MT
Balance strength, mobility, and rest
This embodied mindfulness practice offers a variety of feel-good floor poses as well as active standing poses in both dynamic and static applications. Explore familiar and novel balance poses, learn the benefits of subtle breathing, and cultivate space for stillness, quiet, and deep rest.
While this class is beneficial for those with restrictions or injuries, gentle yoga is not just a second choice when active practice isn’t possible. Instead, this class suggests entirely different goals and intentions. Instead of an always-on or always-off practice, explore the beauty of something in the middle.
No previous yoga or meditation experience is necessary.

Yoga + Intentions = Change
Forget resolutions. They’re often overly idealistic, and fueled by shame, and studies have found that less than 10% of people actually stick to them. Instead, carve out a few hours at the start of 2024 to experience an embodied, connected, and creative state that clarifies where you’d like to focus your energy over the next year from a personal, professional, and/or creative perspective.
In this two-part virtual workshop, Kerry will guide you through the simple, efficient, and effective process she has developed as an annual New Year’s ritual. Create a 3-part intention to focus your year and promote growth over the long term.
Here’s what's included:
3-hour Virtual workshop in January (recording available to those who can't attend live) – The workshop will begin with a 60-minute practice of gentle yoga, meditation, and pranayama to help you feel more connected and embodied, concluding with yoga nidra, promoting a hypnagogic state, the drowsy feeling between wakefulness and sleep. Recent studies have linked the hypnagogic state to increased creativity and problem-solving, which will set the stage for greater open-heartedness and creativity for the second part of the workshop. In the second half, you will be guided through several reflection questions to help prompt your 3-part intention for 2024. Kerry will be available for personalized support throughout the process.
Monthly email encouragements – Intentions can’t come to fruition if you don't revisit them. To support your commitment to your intentions, you will receive a short, inspiring email each month to remind you to check in and stay on track.
2-hour Virtual mid-year check-in (date to be scheduled among the group and recording will be provided for those who can't attend live) - this supportive check-in will be a chance to reflect on your progress towards your three intentions. Kerry will offer tips on staying inspired and will lead a gentle yoga practice. Accountability works!
