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.

Bellingham YogaNew Ongoing Classes:

Yoga (mixed levels/styles)

Taught by: Minta Allred
When: Thursdays, 9:30-11:00 am

This class encourages presence, to develop a strong inner teacher through subtle body awareness. Inspired by a methodology that synthesizes Ashtanga flow, Iyengar alignment, and the teachings of Desikachar, we will synchronize movement with breath, to facilitate a meditative experience connecting mind and body. Each class balances detailed instruction, breath guided movement, and intentional sequencing. The emphasis of this breath centered class is on transitions, drsti (focus), proper alignment and mindful movements for deeper integration. Postures are taught with anatomical understanding and technique. Classes are delicately themed to deepen the student's experience and props and modifications are taught to individualize the practice for each student.

Price: $10 Drop-in*
$90 for 10 class pass (expires in 6 months)
*No one is turned away for lack of funds

Somatic Integration: Embodiment for Self-Care via Fluid Body, Structural Mapping, & Nervous System Releases

Taught by: Deanna Clasby
When: Sunday April 3rd & May 15th  
12:30-3:00 pm each session

Price: $20, pre-registration not required

Please join Deanna Clasby's Somatic Integration Workshop, in which she’ll be teaching a systemic approach, intended to orient the individual to the organic intelligence of their own body. 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 well-being.

Contact Deanna with any questions: email riverflamerolfing@gmail.com or call: 360-224-1363.
