CLASSES + SCHEDULE

DROP-IN — Welcome to all evening classes except Monday 5:30 pm Absolute Beginners, unless you have previously completed at least one full session of Absolute Beginner with me. 
Drop-in Rate: $15, or a 10-class pass for $120. Our classes are 1.5 hours or 90 minutes. Super keen and wanting 3 or more yoga classes a week? The All You Can Yoga Pass is $175 for a six-week session. 

PRE-REGISTERED — From September-mid-December, and January-mid-June, most evening classes are pre-registered 5 or 6-week sessions so we can learn and progress from beginning to end. Most specifically, Absolute Beginners and Level 1 are best if one commits to the whole session. On the other hand, life is as it is, so courses can be pro-rated if you know, at the time of registration, which classes you will miss. Classes pro-rate to $12 each. 
At Christmas, in the spring (April) and summer (July), classes are typically offered in 4, 5 and 6-day intensives. 
We often have a visiting teacher offering special programming in late May and late November.

To register or enquire: wallymaltz@mac.com Thanks!

JUL 17-21 . Absolute Beginners — 
A 5-Day Intro to Yoga . SU-FR . 7:30-9  pm

Never done, or pretty new to, yoga? These five consecutive evenings put together in one week what we more or less cover over six weeks of just one day a week. A great way to get a good taste of yoga and a good introductory foundation. A great review, stretch and detailing for those repeating or even slightly beyond absolute beginner, with the added bonus of the strengthening and lengthening that comes from six days in a row. If you’ve been putting off trying yoga, or fallen off the beginner wagon, this’ll be a lovely opportunity to climb on board. It’s always a treat to work in a group like this, so wait no longer. $60 

JUL 24-28 . 5 Days Level 1
MO-FR . 5:30-7 pm
Five consecutive evenings of yoga stretch, detailing and flow based on the primary series of breath-based Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga — and lots of fun and exploration of the principles of energy and alignment it illuminates, with the bonus of the strength and length that comes from 6 days in a row. If you’ve put off trying yoga, or fallen off the yoga wagon, this is a lovely opportunity to climb on board. It’s always a treat to work in a group like this, so wait no longer. $60
 
JUL 24-28 . 5 Days Hips Hams Core
MO-FR . 7:30-9 pm
Open Sesame. That’s what you’ll be saying after 5 days of Hips, Hams ... and let’s toss in some Core. Ssssssshtrong! $60

JUL 6 . Lunch Yoga at Miles Canyon
Wednesday 12:15-1:15 / 30 pm
By donation! $10 donation suggested. Goes to YCS. i did this a couple of years ago and it was really lovely. On the bench overlooking the river, across the bridge and hang a right. COME! If you have the time, bring your lunch and stay afterwards. Oh! And bring your mat, if you have one.

JAN 1 . New Year’s SANKALPA:
Guided Meditation, Yoga, and Deep Resolution-Setting — a mini-retreat 
11 am-2:15 pm
SANKALPA . SETTING RESOLVE — For those who want to start their new year in contemplation for meaningful intention-setting. Starting with a guided/silent meditation we ask ourselves the questions needed, to find our one most meaningful resolution, for the year. Followed by any writing of thoughts / questions / intentions arising from the meditation. Moving into 45-60 minutes of accessible yoga, stretch and flow, tapering into restorative yoga. A silent break with tea, snacks and personal thought/contemplation. Closing with a long deep yoga nidra to create space for answers and intention to arise, and set more deeply. We will take home the awareness, space and contemplation of the session, and our own stickers for around the house and car, to surprise and gently remind ourselves and perhaps others of what we hoped for from the year. $35

Jan. 30-Feb. 16 . Book of Joy
WEEKDAYS . 7-8:15 AM

The Book of Joy is by The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. 
It is a wonderful book. Two of the world's wisest, most compassionate humans feel the true and deepest purpose of each of our lives is to find, and live in, real and lasting joy. This book is a joyful discussion and guide to doing that.

We will listen together in a casual setting — lying, sitting, meditating, mindfully moving to partake in tea/coffee and/or a light breakfast. Then we will learn, and do, the Joy Practices they offer.

Please register for the whole 12-day course at wallymaltz@mac.com. $120 includes daily light breakfast. The book will be available at a good price, if  desired. I am very excited to offer this 12-day course and hope for a minimum of 10 participants.
