FRIDAY AUG 4
8:45-10:15am Standing Balances with Kerrie Sesto- (FREE)
Approaching balancing from the ground up with determination as well as laughter, patience, and curiosity so that we can create a sense of fluid stability. Understanding balance is not rigid but sensing our body and mind coming back again and again to the midline of the movement by coordinating the strength of various muscle groups as well as utilizing our body's balance centers; our eyes, ears, and our feet.
10:30-11:45am Gentle Flow Fusion w/ Sally Hennessey- FREE
A fusion of gentle vinyasa flow yoga with Qi Gong, an ancient method of healing and disease prevention. Combine fluid breath synchronized asanas (yoga postures) with free flowing qi gong movements to simultaneously energize, relax, and bring peaceful harmony to mind, body and spirit. In this class you can expect to stretch, improve balance and flexibility, reduce tension and anxiety, and find your quiet center.
6:00-7:30pm FREE Friday Night Celebration Flow w/ Caroline ***(featuring LIVE Acoustic Music by Erica Cahill)***
This 90 minute celebratory vinyasa flow practice, features LIVE ACOUSTIC singer and guitarist Erica Cahill. Come celebrate YOU and our 7 Years of wonderful memories here in Haverhill.

7:30-8:30pm OPEN HOUSE
Join us for light refreshments to celebrate our sweet yoga community. Whether you have been practicing at the studio for many years, or brand new, we hope you can join us!
SATURDAY AUG 5
8:00-9:30am Chakra Flow (FREE) with Kacy Harnedy
The chakras are the seven major energy centers in the body in which our energy flows through. Blocked energy in our chakras can often lead to illness and disease. In this vinyasa we will guide you through a series of asanas (yoga postures) specific to the chakra we are focusing on to clear these energy centers. This is an all levels class where we will work from the ground up!
10-11:30am Mellow Flow (FREE) with Joe Delfino
A slower paced yoga practice that is just the the perfect amount of effort and ease. This class is a mix of vinyasa, yin, and restorative poses great for beginners as well as seasoned yogis because it allows for you to focus inward and leave feeling mellow, refreshed and alive!
SUNDAY AUG 6
8:30-10am Reggae Flow to Surrender with Sarah Oleson (FREE)
Join Sarah for this extra special Sunday morning practice. Class will begin with a sweaty flow to fun beats and close with sweetness and surrender. All levels welcome.
10:30am-12:30pm Happy Hips with Julia Tirabassi (FREE)
This creative class will both open and tune-up your hips. Come and experience the physical, emotional, and mental release of increased hip mobility, decreased tension, and overall elevated functionality. We'll work with classic yoga poses (asanas), as well as a non-traditional variety of exercises, techniques, poses, and approaches to unlocking - and rebooting - these complex joints. Hip joints are the central hub of bio-mechanical mobility, as well as our primary source of core stabilization. A balanced yoga practice promotes a combination of deep hip flexibility with mindful strengthening to ensure the ideal balance of both mobility and stability. As you increase the freedom and the cohesion of your hip movements in tandem, you'll enjoy numerous benefits, including: improved postural alignment, a greater sense of ease and integration in your yoga postures, liberation from low back pain, and relief from the rigors of athletic training.
This class is appropriate for non-injured yogis of all-levels and abilities, including beginners. A minimum of 6 months yoga practice is recommended.
4:00-5:30pm Restore & Renew with Kristin Bernier
Time to slow every thing down and just breathe. In this 90 minute restorative workshop with Kristin Bernier, blankets, bolsters and blocks will be used to help you comfortably settle into yoga postures, providing the benefits of deep, passive stretching. Class will begin with some breath work, a short flow, and then move right into longer held restorative postures. Assists and gentle massage with essential oils will help us to calm the mind and more deeply release into these restorative postures. This class is perfect for all levels of yogis, those nursing an injury and all stages of pregnancy. Take time to relax and rejuvenate before the work week!
