Yoga from the INSIDE -
Body In Balance, 6333 Odana Road - Lower Level, Madison

In this Hatha yoga class, there will be a special emphasis on listening to our bodies. What happens when we let the body lead the mind, but still keep our intellect engaged? Without visual expectations for asanas, students will be guided and encouraged to make each posture his or her own, discovering what feels exactly right in that moment from the inside. As in life, we will play the edge of effort and intensity, noticing how much is too little, too much or just right. All levels welcome, including those very new to yoga and women who are pregnant.

About the instructor: An intuitive yoga teacher, Robin is very observant of her students and mindful of their needs. Students comment that she brings a wealth of working knowledge to her classes, which are taught with fun and gentle guidance, in a non-intimidating manner. Always curious about the origin of movement, and the grace that can come from listening and moving from within, Robin's classes invite exploration and discovery. For more information, please email Robin: onetruerobin@gmail.com


Prenatal Yoga
The Chakra House - 330 W. Lakeside Street, Madison

The body goes through many changes during pregnancy and yoga can help women feel confident in their bodies and stay connected to the present moment during this special time. With Miri, you will practice strengthening and balancing poses to help you stay strong and centered as your body grows, hip openers and breath work to help with labor and delivery, and gentle, restorative poses to remind you to relax and enjoy the present moment with your growing baby.

Each class begins with everyone sharing a brief update about their pregnancies. This will help you connect with other pregnant women in the community. Miri hopes to create a positive, warm environment for moms and moms-to-be in the Madison area!
