If you are like me, you love to sing along to the Beatles’ music and of course, dance!  Here is your chance to have a little dance party with all the music you love, like Hey Jude, Revolution, Lady Madonna and more.
We will take the movements from our latest routine and put them to the fun sounds of the Fab Four (Ringo, John, Paul and George not Harry, Meghan, Kate and William).
 
Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes – body, mind, emotion, and spirit.
 
Nia is non-impact, practiced barefoot, and adaptable to individual needs and abilities. Nia classes are taught by licensed Nia teachers.

40 Days to Personal Revolution Jan 15 – Feb 23, 2019

40 Days to Personal Revolution Jan 15 – Feb 23, 2019

401

JANUARY 15 – FEBRUARY 23

SIX WEEKS THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR BODY AND SOUL

Using Baron Baptiste’s award winning book, “40 Days to Personal Revolution” you will work with the classical pillars of asana, meditation, and self inquiry. You’ll raise your commitment, open your mind, explore your heart, and grow in ways that you never imagined!

40 Days EXPRESS – this option is for students brand new to power yoga, returning from an injury or long hiatus, or with extenuating work, travel, or life circumstances (like a new baby!) You’ll do 3 studio practices a week and your meditation will cap at 10 minutes. All other aspects of the program will be the same. Of course you’ll be welcome to do more, you may just find that your energy and motivation bump you right up into the regular program! The prices are the same and you’ll have unlimited access to classes.

ASANA – 6 practices a week – 5 in studio – at Cape Ann Power Yoga* and 1 home practice                                                  *talk to us about any special work or travel circumstances, you may practice at an out of town studio or do home practice.

MEDITATION – 2 times a day – This will start at five minutes and build to thirty.

SELF INQUIRY – Each week you will answer questions from Baron’s book. This journaling work is profound and will open doors in your heart and mind.

YOUR SUPPORT:  Weekly meetings with CAPY leaders: Tuesdays 7:30-8:30 pm at our Annex – 76 Rogers Street in Gloucester

Group connection: you’ll have a FaceBook group as well as access to email with one of your CAPY leaders. Team members, program leaders, and fellow 40 Dayers can let you know when they’ll be at the studio so you’ll know you’ll have friends on the mat.

Team: you’ll have a 40 Day small group (3-4 people) so that you can keep each other motivated and on track.

COST: $200 for the program and unlimited classes for the duration/ $175 for YMCA members/ $50 for autopay, six month and year members. One month and YMCA members will have their months put on hold; class cards will be put on hold.

You’ll buy your own copy of “40 Days to Personal Revolution” and you’ll need a great new journal!

Opening Meeting Tuesday, January 15

FINAL CLASS AND CLOSING Saturday, February 23.
