Winter Solstice and Holiday Schedule

As the winter solstice approaches, we move towards a place of deep quiet, the earth hovering like the pause at the end of a long exhale (much like the yogic practice of kumbhaka), a stillpoint before the next inhalation of breath and light. In the dark interlude we can fold inward to witness the vast peace that supports our busy active lives and then spring forth into the lengthening days with the energy garnered from there.
The holiday schedule of classes will remain the same except for no classes on Christmas Day, or New Year’s morning. We will have a special New Year’s class in the afternoon from 4-5 before the Redbird concert at Memorial Hall.

Holiday Schedule and New Year's Day Special class

Dear students and friends,

The holiday schedule of classes will remain the same except for no classes on Christmas Day, or New Year’s morning. We will have a special New Year’s class in the afternoon from 4-5 before the Redbird concert at Memorial Hall.

We now have a broader range of classes at the studio—another gentle class has been added on Saturday morning at 9 and there is an introduction to yoga class on Thursday morning. Two more active, higher level classes have been added on Monday evening and first thing Sat and Sun mornings. An early morning cardio workout with Zumba is on Friday mornings as well. The Tuesday Zumba class will not be held for the rest of December. Please see the schedule and class descriptions for more information and visit the blog for updates on classes and possible cancellations due to bad weather.

If you are on Facebook we invite you to “like” Shelburne Falls Yoga to follow studio news and other more general information about yoga.

Come join us with the practice of yoga that best fits your needs and interests. Happy Holidays to you all!

Namaste, Penfield

Father's Day Sunday June 20th

Summer Solstice is a universal celebration of the sun's return to enliven growth, change, and refined energy. In this class students will practice uplifting, opening postures and sun salutations to cultivate the free flow of prana in the body and mind. Focusing on pranayama as a base to spring forth, we will move smoothly from posture to posture, exploring the stability of standing and balancing postures and igniting the current within our spines through moderate twists and abdominal exercises to ring out adhesions and unnecessary holds.

During the months of summer, our masculine energy (pingala nadi) is brought to the surface with tides of returning creativity, willfulness, and expanding forms of life-force. This naturally enables us to give in new ways, accomplish goals more acutely, and transform with ease. With this unique pulse now present, it is also appropriate that Father's Day (in all of its masculine expressions) should take place on Summer Solstice. Open to all levels of experience and interest. For Dads, this class is complimentary.
Happy Father’s Day!
