Community Based Yoga Classes in the Bad Axe Area

What's New this Week

May 30, 2016

Our blog this week, A Permission Slip for Grief, takes us back to how our yoga journey together began, with a funeral service professional and a yoga instructor who both believed yoga could help with grief. But when Stephanie found herself recently face to face with feelings of grief, even in the midst of celebrating graduation, she realized that sometimes you just have to feel your way through it.

Moving into graduation season, Stephanie has found it necessary to cancel the Thursday 5:30 class for June. We are also cancelling the 9:30 on Wednesday morning until further notice.

But, we are happy to announce that we are now offering classes in Caseville at Back 2 Back Chiropractic as well as at our home studio, the senior center, and Pilates Revolution. We are also hoping to add an early morning class at the home studio in late June.

We currently have classes offered at the following times:

Monday: 8:30 a.m., 10:00 a.m., 3:30 p.m., 5:30 p.m.

Tuesday: 9:00 a.m.

Wednesday: 8:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 5:30 p.m.

Thursday: 9:30 a.m.

Please see the website for locations and class descriptions.

Stephanie's schedule will open up when the school year ends June 10. She will be helping Lisa with classes, but she is looking for opportunities to offer new classes to best fit your schedule. Please shoot us a message if you are interested in a class at a specific time.

As always, please check MINDBODY for the latest updates on classes or cancellations.

We would love to hear about your yoga experience or address any questions you have. Please email us at pureyogafitness@gmail.com.

As always, we are blessed to be a part of your yoga practice.

Lisa and Stephanie

Pose of The Week

Bee's Breath

Focus: Bee's Breath helps to achieve and sustain a balanced emotional state. It encourages on the spot relaxation when practiced on a daily basis. This breathing techniques slows down the exhalation and has a calming effect on the nervous system.

Begin by sitting in a comfortable seated position with the back erect and the shoulders relaxed. Inhale through the nose, drawing the back of the tongue to the back of the throat. With your lips sealed, exhale making the sound of the letter "M". (You can also plug your ears with your fingers for added effect.) Release the sound until you need to inhale. Avoid extending the breath longer than your capacity. (Doing so adds a reverse effect.)

Benefits: Helps relieve anxiety and depression. It is beneficial for people with ADD and ADHD. Bee's Breath aids the entire nervous system bringing calmness and mood change to the body.
