April 3rd In studio or Virtual
Shawnee believes all bodies are able bodied when it comes to Yoga. Even our precious mother’s to be! This local funny mom of three understands the need for safety and alignment based modifications as she has worked previously as a boot camp stroller fitness instructor to participants in their prenatal, pregnant, and post pregnancy phases of life.
Her desire for working with mothers-to- be and new moms alike stems from the lack of support Shawnee felt during her first pregnancy. Women need women!
With support from other moms and professionals, consistent quiet moments of reflection, and a physical component added into her daily routines, her two daughters came earth side drug free & pain free. A wildly different experience from her first who became a non-emergent cesarean section. Shawnee knows that medically speaking there some things one can not alter, no matter how much one tries to control the narrative, this series is for Moms looking to cultivate inner peace and a support system during their journeys in a safe & non-disruptive environment.
By incorporating learned techniques from first hand experienced teachers your giving yourself one of the best alliances within your “mothering tribe”. Join us and learn how to become more flexible in your body and mind as you nurture this beautiful spirit of life you are embodying.
Stress Free Teens - MYndful Movement Series with Cat
Stress Free Teens - MYndful Movement Series
March 21 - April 23, meets 11:30am Sundays!
6 Week Beginner Series w/Cat!
3 decades ago I began my yoga journey as a sophomore in high school. And when asked 10 years ago while in my yoga teacher training, What is yoga? I responded simply “Yoga is a way of life” So much more than just the physical practice, through the years
MY levelheadedness, MY ability to respond rather than react,
MY own self love and compassion for others
MY own inner peace and good health
to yoga and mindfulness.
Our MYndful Movement series is so much more than physical movement.
I have been fortunate enough over the years to live my dream by paying it forward, not only here at SFB, but spreading mindfulness in our local public school and high school and the surrounding area.
Stress Free Teens will receive the coping skills through mindful awareness to grow into a wiser relationship with all the stress we are meant to endure, just with less anxiety and depression and more confidence, clarity and understanding.

Moving Inward with Mudras with Dana
Sat April 10 11am – 1pm In Studio Or Virtual
Mudra means "seal" or "closure" in Sanskrit. Mudras are pure magic. A mudra is a hand position that balances energy in the body and mind. Mudras were created by ancient yogis to calm the mind, restore physical health, and optimize energy. Dana has been practicing mudras for 7 years and they have become an integrated part of her daily routine. Each mudra could be held for 5 to 45 minutes. We will only be doing 5 minutes each mudra.
This is a meditation and discussion class.
Bring a notebook and pen if you want to write the mudras down . (So you dont forget after class). Bring water to keep hydrated. Bring something from home that will make you comfy sitting or lying down. (Blanket, pillow, favorite socks or sweater , ect….)
Healing Circle with Dana
Fri April 23 7:30 In Studio
The Process of The Healing Circle:
•Listening with Compassion
•Vulnerability & Honesty
Speaking from our truth, both from our brokenness and our wholeness, we discover our present centered healing intentions. Listening to others around the circle with patience and compassion, healing begins as we drop into non-judgmental and archetypes of the human journey.
Dana will start with expressing with gratitude and mindfulness practices such as meditation, EFT (emotional freedom technique) and prayerful intention we prepare the ground for the healing circle practice.
As we prepare for awareness-insight into what we hold onto as obstacles, recurring habits, emotional patterns, and distorted projections that prevent us from moving forward. Releasing the old cloak of who we think we are, we arrive whole, in the here and now, to embody our life energy, free from the past.
