Don't forget!

If you'd like to attend $5 Friday Flow at Farr West Tumblers, make sure to pre-pay by today for the discount!

It's only $10 at the door, but you can treat yourself to that 50% off discount by paying one day in advance. And as always, child care is free so bring the family and enjoy an energizing Yoga practice. It'll start your weekend on the right foot, literally.

Coming January 2011

I know it's crazy to be thinking about the new year already, but I don't want you to miss the great opportunities that will be available at Weber State University spring semester! I'll finally be teaching another class for WSU come January and I'm so excited, even though I don't know yet what I'll be teaching (it'll be some form of Yoga/Pilates).

Visit the Fitness website in order to see the schedule (available soon!) and decide which drop-in classes you'd like to attend. Student and Faculty of WSU can attend free, while the community can drop-in for only $6/class.

If you don't know what kind of class you'd like to attend, check the website in January for the date of Fit*Tastic. It's a one-time opportunity to experience a condensed workout from all the different instructors and the genres they teach. It'll give you a taste of every class, from Zumba to strength training to Yoga and Pilates. The best part of Fit*Tastic is it's free (although $1 donations are appreciated)!

So there you have it. I'm all geared up for a class that hasn't even been assigned to me yet. I hope you'll check back with WSU in January to see me on the instructor roster!

Private group sessions for Yoga, Pilates or PiYo.

I've been contacted for more information regarding group sessions, which is wonderful because teaching a certain number of classes per week is actually a goal of mine. I'm a nerd, I know.

Being a nerd doesn't prevent me from teaching a good class though!

There's currently times available Tuesday through Friday for group sessions, and availability ranges from mornings to early afternoon. Just let me know what day works best and I'll see what time slots are available at Farr West Tumblers to meet your needs.

Pricing is as follows:

1 person = $30
2 people = $25 each
3 people = $20 each
4 people = $15 each
5 people = $10 each
6 people or more = $7 each

If you check around you definitely won't find deals like this anywhere else, especially since free childcare can be provided if arrangements are made in advance. You better believe I take advantage of it when I teach my $5 Friday Flow class, so you should too!

Benefits of Yoga

One of the participants of $5 Friday Flow commented this week that she almost didn't come back for a second practice. She told me that she's not sure she's "good" at Yoga.

First of all, anyone can do Yoga. Second of all, if you're doing something dangerous, then I may correct you. But otherwise, you can easily be "good" at Yoga.

The reason this participant decided to come back is because after her first practice with me, her hip, shoulder and arm felt better for the following week.


Yoga can help stretch tired and tight muscles. It increases balance and can improve flexibility. Yoga helps practitioners become aware of the powerhouse, or core. Awareness of the powerhouse increases use of the it, which strengthens the abs. Yoga helps build lean muscles and it also encourages more efficient breathing. It's an overall workout that can be as challenging as you'd like since there are many correct options for most poses.

I'm so glad to hear that one practice made a difference for this participant. And I'm also glad that one practice turned into two. Hopefully two turns into three...

Start your week right!

Feel free to join me for a Pilates class on Monday afternoon in South Ogden at Wasatch Therapy.

Classes are $10 to drop in, and you can save $20 (two free classes!) when you purchase a 12-class punch pass. No gym membership is required, which is always a plus.

See you there!

Free Yoga practice!

$5 Friday Flow is a great deal, but if you're interested in a free Yoga class, all you have to do is bring a friend to Farr West Tumblers.

It doesn't get much better than that, especially since you can bring your kids for free childcare while you do Yoga.

Classes have started at 10am on Fridays in Farr West, so get some friends together and enjoy a free practice!
