Thursday September 15th 6:30 – 830pm Yoga & Grief: Riding the Wave Join Owner Missi D’Arcy
Missi lost her daughter unexpectedly on April 23, 2015. She believes her yoga practice, and the compassionate, caring yoga community is what has allowed her to continue to move forward in her grief.
For the first phase of this group we are holding a safe space for those that have lost a child, grandchild, or sibling (guidelines similar to TCF)
Missi has attended many group meetings, but has found a restorative yoga practice has helped her the most. She is hoping to share some of what she has learned, share the teachings of yoga and allow time for us to talk and interact with those that understand our grief, our journey, our waves. This will be by donation, any amount is welcome. This means NO ONE will be turned away for the inability to pay. Please join us. Next group will be Thursday October 6th.
*Wednesday September 21st 5-615pm we will be visiting Bedrock Gardens in Lee!! Celebrate fall with Missi in Bedrock Garden! 45 High Rd, just 5 miles from the studio. All Levels welcome! $10 drop in (no credit cards will be accepted for this class)

FLASH Yoga – FLASH Yoga operates on the idea that the world is our studio. FLASH Yoga is a new program we’re introducing at Symmetry Yoga in which we’ll be hosting yoga classes or yoga related events off site at interesting, picturesque, inspirational, fascinating locations and spaces. Yoga in parks and on beaches are popular because they offer the chance to combine the power of familiar precision with the experience of being in a different and intriguing setting.
We will secure many of these FLASH spaces early enough to put them on the regular event schedule on our website, but many will require us to use Facebook and Twitter to announce Flash events, so anyone interested in receiving FLASH Yoga event information, please like us on Facebook & follow us on Twitter. We will constantly be looking for new FLASH virtual studios and announce them on our website and social media. Information will include description and location of Flash site, day and time, duration, capacity, fee, teacher, class type, facilities at the site, parking, directions, and any specific information or suggestions.
If you have, or know of, a space you think might be ideal for a FLASH Yoga class, please contact us here.
