JoJo is here to help custom design your skin to it’s truest potential. Book your 1 hour facial focusing on individually designed treatment plans. Just like you, your skin is unique. Within the hour we will review your daily lifestyle, diet and regimens to assess why we see reactions and conditions on your skin. And analyze deeper into the skin by a magnifying lamp after your skin is cleansed and toned. Products are then chosen and cocktailed for your personal skin ID! Includes exfoliation, serums, mask & moisturizers.

Meet Crystal, licensed massage & neuromuscular therapist. She will be offering 1 hour massages at the studio all day long twice a month. Neuromuscular Therapy is soft tissue manipulation similar to that of myofascial release. It helps to release trigger points, deep muscular tension, and fascial congestion. It is also very effective in treating most chronic pain and degenerative muscle conditions. If time allows for it I like to do a fusion of this and a regular Swedish or deep tissue (depending on desired depth of pressure) so that you still get the release where you need it but also get the benefits of a deep relaxation.

Mantra Meditation with Amanda

October 13th
November 10th
December 8th
Included in class packages
Feeling stressed? Sluggish? Lonely? Anxious? Excited? Are you looking to deepen your yogic practice further by calling upon, and awakening “stuck” energies?  Each week we will begin class with a freshly brewed cup of herbal tea that aids in saucha or “purification,” that will ease respiratory discomfort, combat exhaustion, and mental sluggishness before and during the exploration of mantra recitation, or japa, to strengthen our yogic practice through abhyasa or “repetition.”  The word mantra is derived from the root “man,” meaning “to think,” and a mantra is said to be a tool by which we can control our thoughts.  Mantra stands for protection (trana) of the mind (manas).  We will practice the vibrations of om, and other mantras such as Om Namah Shivaya, Sita Ram, and Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu to produce positive mental habits, and overcome spiritual darkness that rests deep within us.  Come awaken your incredible transformative Shakti power, and protect the mind.
Note: Bring your mala beads.  No mala beads?  No problem.  Just bring yourself.

(In) Volve Yourself- Ashtanga for Life with Michael Guiou
September 29th 11-3 pm
First half will be an extended Led Primary Series plus the very beginning of Intermediate.  This usually takes about 1hr15, but we’ll use a full two hours to explore the sequence from an energetic standpoint.  We’ll workshop the more complicated and challenging groups of postures and vinyasas to develop strategies to hold true to the energetic goals of the Ashtanga Vinyasa System while living with our real life limitations.
The remainder of our time will be spent in discussion surrounding the philosophical underpinnings of modern Ashtanga Yoga – both the “classical” Patanjalian system and the medieval tantric methodologies that combine to create what is practiced today.  We will focus on what this combination of forces means for us as yoga practitioners and members of society.
“I was trained to teach in the lineage of T Krishnamacharya known as the grandfather of modern day yoga practice.  More specifically I practice and am Authorized to teach the Ashtanga Vinyasa system set forth by the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. I’ve spent years assisting and teaching under the supervision of senior teachers, honing both my own practice technique and teaching skills.  Now I travel to India annually to study with R. Sharath Jois at KPJAYI in Mysore.  As constant student of philosophy, I study with MA Jayashree and MA Narasimha, scholars of Sanskrit, Ancient Indian Sciences, and Darshanam, while in India. I’m truly blessed to have close relationships with some of the world’s most knowledgeable yoga teachers. 

I teach how I was taught, taking a non-dogmatic approach to yoga practice, believing that the practice is molded to the student and not vice versa.  Yoga is meant to excel the evolution of the human being, each person possessing his or her own unique set of circumstances.  The use of proper posture, breath control, and consistent focus can catapult the human from a savage to a civilized state of mind.  Yoga is both process and product; the beginning of the journey and the final destination. “
