Welcome to Inspire Studio! We offer a variety of classes including several styles of yoga, a couple Martial Arts classes, and workshops/events that are sure to enhance your life. Check our website occasionally to see what’s being offered or join our mailing list to receive monthly updates. The unique feature of our studio is that because the teachers rent out time slots, they are their own boss and set their own pricing, which is why our schedule changes pretty often and we don’t offer a pass that is studio wide. But don’t worry, with our low drop in and class pass rates, many students find it’s still easy to attend multiple teachers’ classes. If you have questions about a particular class, look on the teachers page to get the info to contact a teacher directly. Click here for more info. on renting our studio or for our list of studio policies/etiquete.
All of our classes are ongoing (unless otherwise specified) and drop-ins are welcome, so you don't have to register ahead of time. Just show up 5-10 minutes early to fill out your waiver and to get set up. We have mats available to use free of charge.

Description: Listening Mothers groups offer a space for mothers and babies to connect in community, learn mindful based skills to reduce stress and encourage balance, and create supports for this tender time. Lead by counselor and facilitator Jennifer Given-Helms, you will be guided to discover your own internal wisdom, deepen your knowledge on parent/child attachment and how to relate them to your child, and develop skills in self-regulation, self-compassion and emotional development.
About Jennifer: Crossing the threshold into becoming a mother is an intense and wonderful time. I love supporting mother-baby dyads through this tender time and the opportunities for growth, grace, and healing that arise. In my private counseling practice, I support mothers and children with a focus on mindful parenting, post partum adjustment and compassionate self care, parenting while living with a chronic condition, parenting a child with chronic health and/or special needs, and navigating family transitions. I am also honored to hold space as a Listening Mothers facilitator. I am excited to share this experience with you and the precious being who has come into your life.

Description: As we approach the fall equinox, when night and day are equal, it’s a powerful time to cultivate inner balance and prepare for the increasing darkness that will lead to winter. What better way to clear your energy and clarify your intentions than to open your body and strengthen your nervous system with kundalini yoga and meditation (with live instrumental music provided by Cody), and then expand and relax your being with crystal and Tibetan singing bowls segueing into a 20-30 minute double gong shavasana with Ruby & Cody! The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases us from the torrent of thoughts our mind continuously generates and stimulates our glandular system to a higher frequency of functioning.
Doors open at 7:10 and tea will be available after.
