“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi

Beautiful yoga pose



5:30 - 7:00 pm

Sweat and Surrender

Leslie's signature "Sweat and Surrender" begins with a 60-minute, uplifting flow sequence in a moderately heated studio (78 degrees). Downshifting with a restorative pose or two, students are then guided through a luxurious 20-minute yoga nidra. Yoga nidra is a voice-guided meditation done lying down; sometimes called "yogic sleep." This 90 minute class will wring you out, steep you in bliss and serenity, and leave you clear and grounded for the coming holiday season.  Sign up to reserve a space. All are welcome (though not suitable for beginners); be prepared to work, sweat, and restore!



6:00 - 7:00 pm

Free Community Class

This month's FREE community class, taught by Kim Hall:"Breathe! A slow vinyasa flow, with a focus on pranayama: using our breath as a way to calm and strengthen the mind and body.  In this gentle class, we'll explore several different types of pranayama, both during our physical practice and as a beautiful addition to our seated meditation. This class is for all levels.

UVY offers a free class for the community one Friday each month.  Sign up to reserve a spot. Bring a mat if you have one.



5:30 - 7:00 pm

Forrest Friday: Core

Many of us walk through life with a “numb” core, which prevents us from tapping into our gut instincts and supporting ourselves by tuning in to our core beliefs and values. Wake up and strengthen your core in this 90-minute all-levels Forrest Yoga practice. Forrest Friday is led by Deb Heimann, Level 2 Forrest Yoga teacher, and is held every 3rd Friday of the month. End your week with a deep Forrest Yoga practice. Expect to leave energized and feeling stronger. Sign up to reserve a spot.



6:30 - 8:00 pm

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is offered the third Sunday of each month and is a wonderful way to create ease and openness in your body, your breath and your soul. This lovely, soothing practice is suitable for all levels, and uses many props to support the body so that the poses themselves are comforting and nourishing, rather than effortful.  Please sign up to reserve a spot; drop in or use your existing pass.



5:30 - 7:00 pm

Solstice Flow: by-donation to benefit The Haven

Join Leslie and Sharon in celebrating the Winter Solstice. Traditionally, the solstice is celebrated in yoga with the practice of 108 sun salutations. Our version of this tradition is to practice some factor of 108 salutations, with accessible and varied versions to make it enjoyable for all. Leslie and Sharon will take turns leading you through these salutations, and then we will transition with a restorative pose or two. We will close our practice with a sweet, guided meditation, seated or lying down, to welcome the light of the season into our lives and our hearts, and to share that light with each other on the night following the Winter Solstice. All are welcome! Your donation of any amount will go to the Upper Valley Haven. Sign up to save a spot. Friends and family are also welcome.



4:00 - 5:15 pm

Prenatal Yoga

This 6-week series taught by Miriah Wall is designed to help women find greater ease during pregnancy, prepare for labor and birth and connect with a community of other mamas-to be. Classes will consist of physical postures, breathwork and meditation intended to help women relax and adjust to the physical, emotional and mental changes associated with pregnancy. Increased body/mind awareness as well as scheduled time for self care can be invaluable tools during the birth process as well as in the period of time once baby is born.

Cost is $90 if registered by January 4; $100 after January 4. Thursdays, 4 to 5:15 pm, Sign up now.

The building itself was renovated to be energy efficient, and the room is moderately heated in cooler seasons to promote a good, healthy sweat, but not heated to an excessive or wasteful degree. There are cubbies in our large office to store your personal belongings, a spacious changing room, a comfy sofa and a water cooler (please bring a water bottle to fill, to cut down on paper cup usage). Two nice, clean bathrooms are located just down the hall. There are also cubbies in the studio itself for valuables, which students are welcome to use. We have a full lending library of yoga books, and encourage students to borrow freely. Gift certificates are available for purchase in any amount.

Please do not wear perfume or any strong scent

People with allergies can be very sensitive to scent. Also, lots of people sweating in a closed space is less stinky than lots of people all wearing different brands of perfume or deodorant.

Wear comfortable clothing

Not so tight it binds, not so loose it gets in your way. And please do not wear clothes that “gap” and are inappropriately revealing.

Practice on an empty stomach

If possible, don’t eat at least three hours before practice. If you know that this isn’t possible for you, eat easily digested food one hour before class.

No food or outside beverages inside the studio

If necessary, bottled water is okay, but remember we are trying to generate internal heat; constant sipping cools the body. After practice, drink plenty of pure water.

Bring your own mat

Shared mats are not hygienic; you may borrow one from us if one is available, until you are able to purchase your own, but please clean it afterward with the mat wipes provided. Please understand mats may be borrowed on a first come basis….we have only a few to borrow, and do occasionally run out of them.

Keep your eyes on your own practice

The practice is richer when it happens from the inside out. It’s not about comparing yourself with the person next to you. Be present with your own experience.

Be kind and loving to yourself

Rest when you need to. Honor where you are in your practice. Use the energy of those around to inspire, not diminish, you. Remember: you are perfect just as you are now, and yoga is meant to enhance that understanding and let that perfection shine. Have fun!
