S.U.P. YOGA WORKSHOP

Yoga for Men (and flexibly challenged women!)

Treetop Yoga Studio is calling all those who say “I can’t do yoga because I am not flexible”. Yoga is for everyBODY. Some of us are stronger, some of us are more flexible, but it is never too late to explore this balance of strength and flexibility in the yoga studio.

We are thrilled to welcome experienced teacher Stephen Labonte into the studio on Wednesday nights. This four week workshop series will explore yoga basics in order to establish a foundation to get the most out of your yoga practice in a mindful, safe manner and to increase flexibility, strength and range of motion.  Each week we will slow down and focus on basic postures. We will learn how to access postures in a safe and pain-free way in order to calm the body and nervous system and deepen your practice. REGISTER HERE

Treetop Yoga is located at 3A Pond Road in Gloucester. We offer over 40 yoga and barre classes a week for all ability levels as well as yoga for kids.

Teen Girls emPOWERed Yoga Workshop

Treetop Yoga (3A Pond Rd, Gloucester) welcomes our local teen girls this Sunday for a specialty workshop. Teenage yoga is an excellent way to help your child deal with the overwhelming emotional and physical changes that she goes through during adolescence. This workshop will introduce girls to basic yoga poses and connect the poses through a fun flow. We will also find support from each other with partner poses and games. Finally, there will be a short conversation period to learn how to use either breathing techniques or the yoga practice to help calm the mind when girls face stressful moments in the classroom, on the playing field, or during everyday social interactions. Pre-register HERE.

“I was feeling really stressed out in math class the other day, but I pretended I was in Savasana at my desk, and it helped me finish my work. It was crazy. No one knew I was sitting there doing yoga!” ~ Seventh Grader, Salem Public Schools

Erin McKay is a former public middle school educator and mom to four children. She is a certified yoga teacher for Treetop Yoga and has received specialty training for kids yoga through Pretzel Kids Yoga and the Baptiste Foundation Unstoppable Program. She teaches tween and teen yoga through the Salem YMCA for the Salem Public Schools and has taught yoga in local Gloucester schools, the Sawyer Free Library, and for local sports teams. Erin has seen the value of yoga for her own children as a supplement to their sports activities and academic demands, but her experience with at risk youth has been most impactful in proving that this practice can offer kids of any age the opportunity to find calm through breath, mindfulness or movement.

Moms – looking for a way to treat yourself this weekend? Check out the Barre Burn and Bolster Bliss workshop that Amanda Stefanik is offering on Friday evening to wind down your week (appropriate for all levels). She will lead you through a traditional 45 minute full-body Barre class, using body weight, light hand weights, and resistance bands to sculpt and tone from head to toe. In class you will pulse, tuck, and squeeze your way through a warm up, various moves on our mat and commence toning together at the barre. We will embrace the shaking muscles and smile our way through!

Hard work pays off… Restorative Yoga. You will retreat back to your mat and bundle up for a cozy and nourishing set of restorative poses using blocks, blankets, and bolsters. No more pulsing here! You will let yourself go, give your body a much needed rest, and melt your way into the weekend! Grab a friend, and enjoy a night out on the mat. Class will not run without a minimum number of participants so please pre-register HERE.

Spring Awakening Flow and Restore

A Detox Flow and Restore Workshop at Treetop Yoga
“Last year’s Spring Awakening with Kayla and Amy certainly planted many seeds in my soul. This rejuvenating evening inspired so much of what I’ve chosen to do over the past year. I’m so excited to be in the room with these two gentle souls again this year!” 
Friday, April 18, 6:30-8:00 PM, Treetop Yoga Studio, 3A Pond Road
Join Amy Varney and Kayla Lemieux for Spring Awakening: A Detoxifying Flow and Restorative Workshop. We will work to clear the body and the mind of dull, stagnant energy as we awaken and energize all of the senses during this ‘seasonal-reset’.
With the arrival of spring, there is a new energy rising within us. In order to gracefully transition from the cold, dark months to the warm, sunny ones, there must also be a shift within our yoga practice. With spring comes added movement, opening, and extroverted energy; an Awakening. 

In order to eliminate excess Kapha, which is the dominant dosha of late winter and early spring, there will be an emphasis on using pranayama (breathwork) to ignite internal heat. Utilizing this heat as a catalyst for transformation, you will be guided into a series of detoxifying poses, aimed to boost metabolic, liver and gallbladder function.

Following this flow portion of class, you will be led into a series of restorative poses, harnessing your internal flame yet remaining light, bright and open. With the assistance of bolsters and blankets, we will work to open the heart and chest, prepping the lungs for spring. The restorative practice is a relaxing and refreshing way to release holding patterns within the body and the mind, making space for you to flourish this season.

As you relax into a state of calm, experience the benefits of detoxifying essential oils, gentle assists and Thai Bodywork to help balance the energetic pathways within the body and increase circulation. As you melt into a final state of bliss, savasana will be complete with chilled lavender eye pillows.
