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.

Kundalini Yoga for Health & Excellence

Taught by: Mandy King
When: Wednesdays 7:15pm - 8:45pm

Price: 1st class for $7 or 1st 3 classes for $15. (2 month expiration)
$11 drop-in, $7 for students, (see the classes page for her class package rates).

Description:  Kundalini yoga is often called the Yoga of Awareness or the Yoga of Angles and sometimes, just plain crazy. It's true, we do unusual things in kundalini but it is the opposite of crazy. In fact, it can bring you more sanity, clarity, focus and inner stability than you realized was possible. It can be mentally and physically challenging but meeting and working with the challenges provides a spiritual strength and emotional balance that is sorely needed in our lives and in our world today. The kriyas (sets of exercises that make up a class) coordinate combinations of repetitive physical movements, breath techniques, various mantras and eye or visualization focuses to serve specific purposes such as cleansing, strengthening, balancing, activating and rejuvenating in the myriad functions of human physiology and experience. Kundalini Yoga is a technology suitable for everyone that facilitates optimal performance on all levels.

This is a simple, beautiful way to take a moment in the weekend to reconnect with internal flow, and tap into peacefulness together as a group.

This is a very simple yet powerful experience in developing an unrestricted breathing pattern that can allow everyday life to bloom in beautiful ways you never thought were possible! Come to alleviate stress, discover answers within, and be at peace. To reserve your spot in the mini session, please call Erika at 360-393-7229.

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

Taught by: Deanna Clasby
When: Sunday Feb. 7th, March 6th, 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.

Description: With the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Kundalini Rebirthing – Angelic Ghosting, we will do the inner work to purify the mind and spring clean the garbage from our subconscious. “Angelic Ghosting is a very old phenomenon. Angelic Ghosting will allow you to confess, admit and redeem the burden from your subconscious mind. The purpose of life is happiness. Discipline gives you happiness. This kriya will allow you to trust God within you and others and live as your Higher Self.” — Yogi Bhajan

“Do you know how terrible a situation you create when, as a human being, you cannot live in harmony, you cannot communicate, you cannot keep your promises, you cannot deliver what you are here to deliver? You are children of a commotional self... Why is making a trauma important to you? Why is creating drama important to you? Why are yelling and screaming important to you? Why is getting angry important to you? Why is getting depressed important to you? Why are empathy and sympathy important to you? The mind is nothing, and the body has strength.” — Yogi Bhajan
