We are excited to announce that our Tuesday night meditation group has returned to Be Well Studios. We will be meeting in the larger downstairs event space and following social distancing and safety guidelines. Leah looks forward to seeing everyone again and invites anyone curious about mediation to join. We feel it is especially important during this time to be offering meditation to the community. We hope to see you there! The cost to attend class is $10.
With our new winter schedule having started up on December 1st, we are welcoming Erin Bonneau to the Be Well Team. Erin teaches Core & Balance Yoga on Fridays at Ten A.M.
“I have been consistently practicing yoga since 2016 and I enjoy the deep sense of calm I find on the mat. I completed my yoga teacher training program in March of 2018, receiving my RYT 200 from Katie O’Connell at Dragonfly Yoga Barn, Studio & Retreat. Yoga teacher training provided me with a safe space to deepen my understanding of myself and develop a skill set to calmly navigate through the rough waves life can throw in your path. Yoga has challenged my mind and body to cultivate strength, flexibility, and acceptance and I look forward to being a lifelong student of yoga. I practice Ashtanga for the strength and discipline the practice brings to my life. I enjoy teaching vinyasa for the creative freedom of sequencing a class that I can explore with students. As a teacher, my goal is to create a safe space within the classroom for students to explore the mind-body connection and develop strength and flexibility with a sense of steadiness and ease.”
Core & Balance Yoga – Fridays at Ten
Core and Balance Yoga Flow will strive to improve your balance, strength, and stability within the mind and the body. We will begin by grounding and tuning into the body followed by warming the body through a series of postures focusing on igniting our inner fire and developing core strength. Once the body is warm and the core activated, flow through a sequence of balancing postures that will challenge you to improve your coordination, strength, stability, and concentration. The class will end with an extended savasana to absorb the benefits of the practice. Modifications offered as well as progression when you feel ready to advance and improve your practice.
Ok let’s face it – We are half way through November. It’s chilly out there. There’s some snow blanketing the Mt. Washington Valley, though not QUITE enough for cross country skiing. And, it’s supposed to rain this week! If you’re anything like me, the shortened days and colder weather can be a real downer – especially on a Monday. I think we all know it’s best to go easy on ourselves this time of year, and November is a great time to practice gratitude and take care of ourselves. That said, one class that is an absolute blessing this time of year is Warm Vinyasa Flow with Lori Keenan on Monday mornings at 10:00.
There are so many nice things to look forward to in this class. For starters, Lori is super nice, inviting, and delightfully light hearted. It’s completely ok (and welcome!) to laugh in class. Also, it’s nice and warm in the studio for this vinyasa flow. Actually, the temp is right around 80 degrees which feels like a little mini vacation on a cold day. Don’t forget to hydrate prior to attendance, because you WILL sweat. This class heats up the body quickly, opening up your lungs, and I think you’ll find that your flexibility increases throughout the hour. While challenging, the stretches that Lori suggests are extremely inviting – this class can be as mellow or challenging as you would like it to be. Lori is also a pro at offering gentle assists when stretching that are just a sweet little gift to the body.
“This 75-minute moderate level complete Vinyasa practice will be taught in a way that will allow you to work within your own level of experience. Modifications will be offered and encouraged. Our class will focus on mindful breathing and alignment to support an enjoyable Vinyasa experience, leading you to increased strength, flexibility, and unexpected openings.” – Lori
