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: The Law of Attraction says that you must match the energetic vibration of that which you wish to attract or become. But HOW? How do you make the jump from your current vibration into the fulfilled state you seek to manifest? The prosperity kriyas and meditations of kundalini yoga provide the tools and practice to vibrate your cells and psyche with the energy of abundance. You are literally infusing your Being with the frequency of prosperity. Included in this process is the crucial work of releasing or moving through blocks to success, growth and opportunity so that you are open to receive the abundance of the Universe. This is a powerfully effective way to BECOME prosperity!
Mandy King has loved practicing kundalini yoga for over 6 years and has recently completed the KRI Level 1 Immersion Course for Certification. She has been teaching various classes including fitness, meditation, tarot and shamanic journeying since 2011 and is very excited to share the empowering practice and teachings of kundalini yoga.

Description: High Therapeutic Value off this event can be life-changing for those who suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, acute or chronic stress.
This workshop is taught by a yogini who lived with anxiety for almost 2 decades of life. It is a fruit of her long hours of teaching, personal practice and self study.
Besides the authentic process of her recovery, this event brings specific yoga – meditation protocols that The Research Group for Mind-Body Dynamics (UCSD, UCLA) suggests as an effective noninvasive approach for the clinical treatment of anxiety, panic and stress disorders.
In this event you will be guided through the world of:
- breath (science of pranayama)
- body postures and movements (Kundalini & Tibetan yoga ways to unblock the energy)
- meditation (guided and silent)
This workshop is a compassionate analysis of anxiety from yogic perspective. Techniques presented in it are not a weapon to fight this condition. They will help you to regain trust, to start a journey of your inner transformation with confidence and to witness your own metamorphosis from Chaos to Harmony, from Fear to Love.
"Making Peace with Anxiety" is a successful fusion of a personal experience, Yoga Therapy and Neuroscience.
- All levels are welcome. NO previous experience necessary.
- Wear comfortable clothes that allow ease of movement.
- You will need a yoga mat, water and blanket - can be borrowed at the studio.
- Have a light meal minimum 1 hour before the event.

I re-connected to my Self, I learned to Breathe, I knew about Compassion and redefined Self Love.
Those are the only tools needed to transcend and heal.”
Taught by: Deanna Clasby
When: Sunday December 6th, Jan. 10th, & Feb. 7th
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 360-224-1363

Description: The winter solstice, the longest night of the year, is a reflective time of year where we prepare to move into the light, not only physically but with our intentions as well. What better way to clear your energy and clarify your intentions than to open your body and strengthen your nervous system with kundalini yoga, meditation (with live instrumental music provided by Cody) and then expand and relax your being with the sound of crystal singing bowls segueing into a 31 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. Take a moment during this busy holiday season to nurture yourself and celebrate this turning point with us!
Doors open at 12:30 and tea & snacks will be available before and after.
Taught by: Mandy King
When: Wednesdays 7:15-8:30 pm Jan. 6, 13, 20, & 27
Price: $11 drop-in or $36 for the series. Please pay cash or check at class
Want to DO it all and BE it all without falling apart?
Between the demands of our ambitions, dreams and responsibilities, our bodies, relationships, productivity and creativity may suffer without the support of a strong nervous and glandular system. This series strengthens the Neuro-Endocrine System, the "Systems Supervisor" of your body which regulates your entire physiology via electrical (nerves) and chemical (hormones) functions.
Healthy functioning of the Neuro-Endocrine system results in an ability to handle stress and strain efficiently and gracefully and keeps the physical body operating smoothly. It endows one with confidence, inner authority and a comforting, stable presence in times of upset. The world needs everyday superheroes right now so come make yourself strong! Contact Mandy at email@example.com for questions or more info.
