This class also continues to deepen pranayama (breathing) & meditation techniques. This is the beginning level of the Dharma Yoga series. Students will practice and be introduced to Dharma Yoga Shiva Namaskar Vinyasa Level I to warm up the body, bring flexibility to all muscles and joints, and wake up the nervous system. A gentle yet powerful series of balancing, stretching, back bending, twisting and mild inverted postures will follow. This practice ends with Deep Relaxation, breathing exercises, and concentration/meditation to remove impurities and bring a sense of well-being to the body and radiant peace to the mind. More info:

1:30 pm – 2:30 pm: Pure Barre, Pure Barre Classic taught by Cathy McKie

The Pure Barre technique is a combination of pilates, yoga and strength training. This low-impact, challenging work out is designed to protect your joints and is accessible to all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Each strength section of the workout is followed by a stretching section in order to create long, lean muscles without bulk. The technique works to defy gravity by tapering everything in and lifting it up! The concentration involved while taking Pure Barre allows you to block “life” out for the hour, creating the mental benefits similarly obtained by the practice of yoga or meditation.

3 pm – 4 pm: Core Pilates & Yoga, Pilates Mat taught by Valerie Patrick

A mat-based overall body conditioning class that will develop core and back strength, increase flexibility, coordination and balance. For the body to be strong, the core must be stable. Emphasis is placed on all the Pilates principles including proper alignment and breathing. No other class will give you a long, lean and toned body. A ¼” or ½” mat is required. More info:

4:30 pm – 5:30 pm: Zanshin Yoga, Zen Yoga taught by Amy Ligoci

Zen Yoga merges the flowing movements of Tai Chi, the energetic breathing of Qigong and the gentle stretching of Shanti Yoga. Zen Yoga calms and rejuvenates your mind. Join us in creating flexibility, health, vitality and peace of mind with gentle movements and mindful breathing. More info:

6 pm – 7:30 pm: Vision Dream Board Workshop presented by Brass Rings Coaching

A vision board is simply a collective name for a wide variety of inspirational collages created from pictures. It’s a pictorial representation of your vision—and a powerful way to make your dreams more tangible and attainable. That’s because the very act of creating the vision board tells your mind what’s important. You’re teaching your mind what you want to focus on in your life. You’ll begin with a visualization exercise and prompts to dig into your deepest dreams and goals. Collage work and connection will begin! Cardstock, magazines, scissors and glue sticks will be provided.


9 am – 10 am: Barre3, Classic Barre taught by Jennifer Rubin

Barre3 mixes the wisdom of yoga, the strength of Pilates, and the grace of ballet barre work to deliver a full body workout. All movements are low-impact and are designed to tone and lengthen all major muscle groups, rev your heart rate and strengthen your body to one of equal balance, strength and flexibility. All fitness levels welcome, as we offer ways to adapt each posture. More info:

10:30 am – 11:30 am: Syracuse Yoga, Yoga for everyBODY taught by Sophie Tashkovski

More info:

12 pm – 1 pm: Bodhi Barre, Barre Mat class taught by Colette Meltzer

Bodhi Barre is a fusion of ballet, yoga, pilates and core strength training. It’s a dynamic total body workout that will strengthen, lengthen and tone your Bodhi!
