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.
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.

Taught by: Deanna Clasby
When: April 25th 3:30-5:30
Description: Please join Deanna Clasby's two hour Somatic Integration Workshop. We will explore slow, full body movements that allow us to “hack” into the nervous system, releasing the underlying causes of tension. When we are in “fight, flight or freeze” mode our nervous system organizes our tissue in guarded, readied, or immobilized positions.
When we move slow enough we can feel these nervous system signals & are able to start re-negotiating them from a sense of support, capacity and ease. We will practice how to let our system “drop,” how to listen to what it needs, and how to find a tacit assessment of wellbeing.

Taught by: Meera Dasi
When: Friday May 1st, 7:30-9:00 pm
Cost: $10 at the door. $5.00 for students with ID.
Meera Dasi will be leading us into a beautiful Raaga-Meditation that has its roots in Classical Indian Music. It is a wonderful way to re-connect with our Heart, the Divine Self and to experience and develop our singing voice. Singing with devotion (Bhakti) is very healing for body, mind and soul as it relaxes, rejuvenates and makes us feel “whole” and connected with our own Divinity.
Meera Dasi is a devotional singer from Germany, where she lived for six years in the Ashram of her Guru, Sri Swami Vishwananda. Her joy is, to spread His message of Love and Unity that all true religions teach.

Description: Drawing upon the energy of the Full Moon and the upcoming Mother’s Day, join us in nurturing the Divine Feminine and in exploring the loving energy of the Divine Mother within each of us. This workshop will be perfect as a gift to yourself or a mother in your life as it will be like a mini-retreat, allowing women of all walks of life to get away from the usual demands of life and connect as a circle of strong women. Last year we had this workshop on Mother’s Day and it was so special to see how everyone left feeling more lighthearted and connected to the Divine Mother.
Yoga, Breath, Movement, Mudras, Chanting, Meditation, & journaling will be offered as a way to tap into our feelings, intuition, and innate wisdom for healing and guidance! Ruby will mainly be teaching in the style of Kundalini Yoga, but will draw from other yoga and movement styles as well. With sound healing through singing bowls and the gong, as well as valuable information about the moon being offered, this workshop will give you an experience you’ll be able to draw from for months to come. Chocolate truffles and other treats will be passed around for a mindful eating meditation and every woman will receive a small gift they can take home. Please bring a scarf, an item for the alter that you’d like to gain or clear energy, a journal, and something to write with.

HOW TO HELP CLIENTS WHO ARE NOT GETTING BETTER?
Please join Deanna Clasby's Somatics Approach Workshop. How we chose to see the client dictates how we approach the treatment, the outcome of the work, and the way the client experiences the session. We will introduce ways of gathering assessment information that help us “get out of the way.”
You will practice tracking your client's system at subtle levels, learn to read the yes/no signals, and how to hold them both. Deanna's coaching helps validate & build student's own perceptive abilities & skills. The approaches taught are applicable to, and will enhance, whatever treatment approach modality you currently use.
