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.

About Erin:

“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

Stay tuned throughout the week as we highlight various classes on the schedule. With over 20 scheduled classes per week, including a Wednesday night meditation class, there’s a lot to choose from, and something for every taste.

Our updated yoga schedule can be found here.

Be on the look out for a new winter schedule launching in a few weeks.

 

Warm Vinyasa Flow With Lori – A Cure For The Mondays

 

August 1st- The New Moon

The New Moon Phase occurs when the Moon is completely dark with zero-percent luminosity, while the Full Moon Phase is completely bright with 100-percent luminosity. While today is the day of the New Moon, the exact new moon is really just a split second before illumination starts to occur again.

“The new moon signifies the start of a new cycle. It’s a time to formulate new intentions and reevaluate existing ones. This is a lower energy phase, so get plenty of rest and give your self the space to connect with your true purpose, passion, and mission. Set aside time for  meditation, journaling, spending time with nature, and yoga. From these places, you can set intentions which are aligned with your authentic self. When you feel ready, write down your intentions and go through your existing list to make sure they are still valid.” -From the “Moon Calendar”  Ap

Currently the moon is in Leo which reminds us to honor and be kind to our heart, chest, spine, and upper back. Consider taking up yoga or pilates or spending a few days getting deeper into your practice if you already do it.

This is likely to be a time where you are surrounded by ideas and new input, which may have an impact on how you perceive and understand the world around you. Your interactions with your local environment and the people you are closest to are also likely to be in focus.

Sam Derrenbacher

Sam has her RYT 200 certification, and is certified in Aerial yoga and Reiki Level One

A little bit about Sam:

Every day I practice yoga, I simply feel better. dream of bringing yoga into the lives of everyone so that everyone can simply feel better – both in mind and body. I believe that yoga can fit into any moment in life and is excited and humbled to be able to share my passion with others. 

My mom took me to my first yoga class when I was a freshman in high school and I have grown so much over the past 15 years because of my practice. began my journey to become a yoga teacher in the winter of 2018 at Heartwood Retreat Center in Bradenton, Florida. The program had a wonderful blend of the many types of yoga methods, yoga philosophy, anatomy, and culture and I was surrounded by a wonderful group of mentors. I am certified RYT 200, Aerial yoga and Reiki Level One and am expanding my experiences and education in yin, meditation, herbal wellness and essential oils.

I developed my dynamic hatha yoga class to create a beautiful blend of many styles of yoga to increase flexibility and core strength. Each class will be centered around a fun and educational theme and challenge both beginners and regulars. I am excited to share this class with you all and hope you are able to join me!

I love to adventure and use the physical and mental aspects I have learned in yoga to build my strength for all my adventures. My favorite activities include skiing the backcountry, climbing the local crag, biking natural trails, paddling every river, and researching a small, endangered butterfly that lives in the alpine zone of the White Mountains. A passion of mine is to blend my adventurous spirit with taking care of myself – from yoga to meditation to my homemade skin care products.
