This 5-week series of Sunday evening yoga classes is designed for those looking to bring yoga into their everyday routine, and to help prepare the mind and body for the week ahead. Held in a cozy setting at MindSpace Collective, we'll practice poses that you can visit throughout your day (including stretches that can be done at a desk / in a chair). Class will also include a short meditation, breathing exercises, and a long savasana to give you an opportunity to slow down and connect with yourself.
All practice levels are welcome (experience not required)! Various options for poses will be provided. If you have a mat, please bring it with you. You may also like to bring a cushion, blanket, and/or towel to use as a prop.
Maximum class size is 6, please reserve your spot early!
$70 for the whole series (5 Sundays, September 22nd - October 20th)
Class is from 5:30 - 7 PM. We encourage you to arrive at 5:30 to enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or decaf coffee as we chat about the past week before starting our practice at 5:45. Iced water will also be available.
This series includes access to an exclusive group chat with your peers and the instructor to encourage ongoing discussion and commitment to your practice. The instructor will also be available for about 15 minutes after every class to answer any questions you may have.
(Questions about this series or need to borrow a mat for class? Please contact instructor Kate Motto at firstname.lastname@example.org)
About the space: MindSpace Collective is a creative community and co-working space located in a renovated historic cottage-style house in downtown Gainesville.
About the instructor: Yoga has been a part of Kate Motto's lifestyle for about 15 years. Introduced to yoga early on by her parents, she had a primarily home-based practice for about 10 years. When she started attending group classes in Gainesville, she enjoyed the sense of community, and valued the support of an instructor. Kate realized her love for sharing yoga with others, and in spring of 2016 completed the 200-hour ‘Yoga Practice’ Teacher Training at Sanctuary Yoga & Wellness with Melissa Montilla. Personally, yoga has helped her throughout her life with anxiety, grief, and her overall well-being. Kate particularly enjoys restorative yoga, chair yoga, and meditation. She believes in making yoga accessible for ALL and strives to create a welcoming atmosphere in her classes, reminding practitioners to do what serves them best. She emphasizes being kind towards yourself, and taking time to rest.
