The Yoga Room has been a quiet sanctuary for yoga practice since 2004. We offer mindfulness-based Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes for adults of all ages and levels of experience. We take a unique approach with our weekly yoga classes by designing 2 to 4 month sessions around a speciﬁc theme for students who are looking for a more in-depth, enriching yoga experience. Our yoga classes are intentionally small -- a maximum of 7 students -- so that each student receives the attention they deserve.
*All classes taught by Christy except those denoted with an asterisk. Monday 6pm Yin taught by Christina Witter. Thursday 9:30 AM Hatha taught by Jessie Courtney.
PLEASE NOTE: IN LIGHT OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, AS OF MONDAY, MARCH 16, ALL CLASSES AT THE YOGA ROOM ARE CURRENTLY SUSPENDED UNTIL THE NEED FOR SOCIAL ISOLATION HAS PASSED. PLEASE SUPPORT A SMALL BUSINESS AND CONTINUE ENJOYING CHRISTY'S CLASSES VIA AUDIO DOWNLOAD. NEW CLASSES WEEKLY!
Spring Cleaning, Core & More
March 9 - June 27, 2020
In the first half of this 4-month session we will shake off the winter blues by doing some yogic spring cleaning sequences for our immune system, lymphatic system, digestion and more. Then we will power up our yoga poses in the second half of the session by exploring all the muscles that make up a strong core--strengthening what is weak, improving posture, relieving back pain and achieving better balance.
This session is already underway. If you're not registered, join us on a drop-in basis ($20/class).
Details coming soon!
Great for beginners and those wanting a more mellow practice.
Gradually increase strength and ﬂexibility while relieving stress and tension. AM Hatha: A more energizing class to help wake you up and set a positive tone for your day. PM Hatha: A calming, slower-paced class to help you unwind at the end of your day.
Best for students in good physical condition or with prior yoga experience.
Ann Arbor's Original Vinyasa! This alignment-centered style of Vinyasa offers a practice that is fluid and fun, but at the same time safe and sustainable. Increase your strength, flexibility and memory in this heat-building style by learning the sequence and then flowing on your own!
Good for all levels, especially those wanting a great stretch.
Yin Yoga has been coined the "quiet practice". A variety of leg, hip, back and shoulder stretches are held for 3-5 minutes in an attempt to go deep into the muscles and connective tissue of the body. Use breath and awareness as tools to cultivate mindfulness and deep relaxation.
Looking to save some money, but still want quality yoga classes? Please inquire about opportunities for free yoga classes in exchange for helping out at the studio in various ways (studio management, office work, IT, graphic design, photography, gardening) or for other barters like bodywork, etc.
I am also always looking for qualified and experienced yoga instructors to sub or teach at The Yoga Room. Please inquire about opportunities!
