Meet Robin!

” When I am not in the studio or at my other full time job, you can find me doing a wide variety of activities outside. I enjoy running, biking, hiking, paddling, and rock-climbing. I grew up in the hills of southern Vermont and spent my summers as a kid on Squam Lake. I’ve been living in the Mount Washington Valley for five years, and every day I am still amazed by the beauty of this place.”

Robin teaches Roll & Renew on Monday’s from 8:15 AM – 9:30 AM

Happy Summer Solstice

Happy Summer Solstice from all of us at Be Well Studios.
What is the summer solstice?

On Friday, summer finally begins. The summer solstice is at 11:54 a.m. EDT on Friday, June 21. From an astronomical standpoint, the summer solstice marks the beginning of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the exact moment that the sun reaches the Tropic of Cancer. And good news for all of you sun worshipers, it’s the day that has more daylight than any other day of the year – 13 hours, 46 minutes and 41 seconds of daylight, to be exact!

The solstice is a popular holiday in the yoga tradition, being that it represents the longest day of the year, and the first day of summer. It is also International Yoga Day and has always been an opportunity to reconnect with nature.

There are so many great ways to celebrate the solstice, including joining us for practice, getting outside for a hike, or reconnecting with friends.

Here are some favorites:

1. Salute the sun.

Solstice is symbolic of transitioning from the short days of winter to the bright, long days of summer. As yogis, so many of our practices revolve around the sun, including, of course, Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar). The origin of “saluting the sun” is not about getting the perfect Chaturagna/Upward-Facing Dog alignment, it’s about bowing to and taking in the fiery solar energy of the sun, to wake us up, energize us, and start our day. The practice was originally taught to be done in the morning, with the torso facing the sun.

2. Revamp your morning routine.

Since Solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s a great time to take advantage of the extra sunlight to wake up early and do something that makes you feel great, whether it’s meditation, yoga, or taking a revitalizing bath or shower infused with essential oils. Our yoga classes begin at 8:15 AM! 

3. Get outdoors.

A great way to celebrate Solstice is to simply get outdoors and enjoy the sun. It could be as simple as taking a walk by the water or in the park—just making the time to connect with nature. When you’re finished swing by The Local Grocer for a fresh organic breakfast. We proudly feature locally sourced food, included home made juices, smoothies, and breakfast bowls.

No matter how you decide to celebrate, we wish you a Happy Summer Solstice and hope to see you in class soon.
Be Well!

Mindful Living, April 22, 10:00am-5:00pm

Presented by Ed Williamson of Pathways Mindful Living and Wellness  :

This day-long Mindful Living workshop is designed to bring awareness and union to the four energies that make up our human life-those of the body, mind, emotion, and subtle energy. When we are not in control of our energies, we are living by accident rather than living intentionally. Most often we are the passenger being driven through life at the whim of our patterned thinking and emotional reactions.
In this Mindful Living workshop, you will learn methods to manage and unify these four energies, enabling you to sit in the driver’s seat and take control of your life’s direction and destination.
Through this practice, you will be able to break old patterns, create new ones, and live from a place of mindfulness and, ultimately, joy. Through light physical movement, meditative practice, and guidance in emotional behavioral awareness, this workshop will help you recognize any discord and imbalance in your energies and learn how to manage and harmonize them.

 Please wear loose clothing for some light movement
 Please bring a notebook and pen

$75 per person, includes a coupon for discounted lunch in our Organic Cafe
Payment is expected at time of registration
Register in person at The Local Grocer

Gentle Flow Yoga to Restore with Jess

In this Gentle Flow Yoga to Restore class we will gain mind/body awareness in a non competitive environment. Uniting breath (pranayama) with movement (asana), we will work toward gaining lung capacity, functional strength, range of motion in the joints, balance, flexibility, and relaxation. Each class begins with a grounding exercise. From the grounding exercise, we’ll transition into a warm up, a gentle work phase, a standing balance phase, and finally into a cool down with restorative poses and deep breathing. The most challenging part of your practice will be getting here, but make the time for yourself and discover the physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits of a regular yoga practice.

Open Studio with Shane

This $5 class was created to provide a more financially accessible space to practice where you can come and just be; tune into your body and let it guide you rather than being guided by an instructor; a clear space to escape, to relax, or to simply have fun and play! Shane will be holding and ensuring a safe space, as well as addressing any potential inquiries you may have during your free flowing movements. See you on the mat!

Power Yoga with Jess

Heated Power Yoga is a powerful, fast paced, dynamic & sweaty all levels class designed to challenge, awaken, detoxify & purify every system, muscle and tissue of the body.

This class is appropriate for all levels. Modifications and variations are encouraged to support and accommodate individual needs and experience levels. Class is 75 minutes long!
