"Last Day of Summer"
Afraid to ~~FALL~~? Join us for a balance themed SUP Yoga class! We'll push boundaries in poses that are accessible to all levels, yet challenging because of the instability of the board. Will I fall in? Yes. But we’ll have a cup of hot coffee or tea waiting for you as you step off the dock.

Start your Autumn off right with our traditional, all-levels SUP Yoga class. It is our tried-and-true recipe for a great start to a morning and the fall season. Stick around after class for a steaming cup of (free!)coffee or tea! What could be better than a post-SUP Yoga cup of joe with your fellow yogis?

Terrace Yoga Class Schedule:
Friday, September 22, 7-8am
"Flex into fall"
Celebrate the start of Autumn with a special class focused on flexibility led by Eva! Flexibility often seems like an unreachable goal, but it can bring balance into our lives in many ways. Whether it’s flexibility in your schedule, adaptability of your mind, or bendiness of your body, this theme deserves a place at the forefront of our first Fall practice. "Flex into Fall" will focus on lengthening and stretching, and the breath work that is so integral to increasing our flexibility. Using alignment technique and breath practice, Eva will help each student discover their true range of motion Recalibrate yourself for Autumn at Terrace Yoga this Friday! (Stay after class for a free cup of coffee or tea!)
Saturday, September 23, 9-10am
"terrace (chair) yoga"
Ditch blocks and straps - we’ve got one better. Sarah will be leading a safe and fun, all-levels class featuring the best yoga prop around: Terrace Chairs! We’ll use the chairs for stability, allowing us to focus on alignment and go deeper into tricky balance poses like Dancer and Balancing Half Moon. We’ll also use the chairs for support in a variety dynamic postures, deep stretches, and relaxation. (Don’t worry, we will not be climbing on the chairs; our feet will remain planted firmly on the ground!) Join us on Saturday at 9 AM to discover all the creative ways you can use a Terrace Chair in your yoga practice!
Sunday, September 24, 9-10am
Our very last Terrace Yoga class of the season will take you beyond the regular “breathe in, breathe out” flow of your normal practice. In this special pranayama class, Megan will help students explore many of the different types of breath work integral to a full yogic practice, and incorporate them into an all-levels flow. But the benefit of breath doesn’t end there! In addition to guiding students through the use of their breath in a physical practice, Megan will highlight the benefits of intentional use of breath throughout guided meditation. What better way to end a full season of Terrace Yoga than by bringing it back to the reason we are all here: a breath of fresh air.
