Here, at Your Core Being Wellness Collaborative in this beautiful quiet space, we focus on total wellness - the connection of mind, body and spirit - along with the amazing benefits of Yoga Asana (poses), Pranayama (breath work) and the connectedness of gathering together in the "Sangha Studio", a lovely and sacred space.
We are delighted to introduce to you the free app to keep up to date with all of our classes, workshops, teachers, and more at Your Core Being. MINDBODY software, the online tool we use to manage classes, practitioner schedules and the marketplace, offers a free app you can download onto your phone or tablet so you'll always know what class is scheduled and who is teaching. You can sign in there, complete our waiver form if you're new to us, as well as purchase your class, workshop, or package via the app. In addition, now you can also schedule a massage or skin care from your phone or tablet! Just click on the "Get MINDBODY" button.
Placed in our schedule especially for teachers and others whose workday ends a bit earlier. Afternoon Glow is typically a Vinyasa Flow style of class, which uses the power of the breath to move both strongly and gracefully through the practice, and to deepen a pose. As with all of our "YogaLife" classes, this class is suitable for all levels of experience.
"Big 'n Little Yoga"
We invite moms, dads, or other family members or caregivers to bring their child/ren to yoga! We focus on breathing techniques, physical poses, and mindfulness exercises to encourage kids to be curious about their bodies and their breath and to enjoy that self-discovery, The class helps kids (and their adult companions!) become more flexible, improve and maintain balance and coordination, learn and develop focus and concentration and boost self-esteem, while having fun! Not currently in the schedule.
We here at Your Core Being know that yoga is for EVERY body. This fun, challenging, and inspiring class is designed especially for women and men who want to explore yoga in a comfortable setting where all body types are celebrated and appreciated. Instructor Audrey Duede helps students learn how yoga poses can work for their body type, while creating a beautiful and beneficial practice for all. In this class, props and modifications help to make yoga accessible to any body because yoga is for every body.
Chakra Balancing Series
The Chakra Balancing series is 8 weeks long, focusing each week on one of the seven Chakras (energy centers) in the body. The eighth and final class is a total Chakra balancing sequence. You will also learn about the Chakras and experience the beauty of Chakra balancing colors and essential oils. Use the MINDBODY app and/or look to our Facebook page for times when this series lands back in the schedule.
Happy Hour Restorative Yoga
Rest. Rebuild. Restore. Recharge. Relax.
A Restorative Yoga practice with special themes, like Gratitude, Forgiveness, Balance, Hearts Wide Open, or Winter Solstice, one Friday each month. Find deep contentment through supported asana and guided breathwork, beautiful music, inspirational poetry and prose, essential oils and little surprises each time.
We like to switch things up just a little by often adding in the practice of Yin Yoga to our Happy Hours. Yin Yoga, a slower practice, creates a deeper release of the connective tissues of the body - the tendons, fascia and ligaments - through holding poses for longer periods of time, breathing in to the poses, and allowing the body to release and strengthen. Each month, you can expect a mindful, restful, delicious mix of asana and pranayama that is sure to energize your body, engage your mind, and enlighten your spirit.

Laura Youngblut's Vinyasa/Yin is an all levels class. Vinyasa is a flow style yoga; movement is continuous. Yin yoga promotes awareness while holding each pose. In this class, yoga poses are cued with the breath. Breath is needed as an energy source to life and can be controlled during your yoga practice. The rate of cueing of breath and movement may vary throughout this class. It is the choice of each yogi to find their control, physically and mentally.
Busy during the week? Remember, there's always Saturday for a dynamic and energizing yoga class at Your Core Being! Saturday's class is entitled "Weekend Warriors" in honor of all of us who work like H all week long and finally, on the weekend, get some me time to work body.mind.spirit. Sound like you?
You can check the schedule, sign up and pay for classes easy-peasy by downloading the MINDBODY app. Find out who's on the teacher's mat, times for all classes, and much more, right in your palm.
Designed for all levels of experience, we offer new poses, more challenging poses, plus instruction in modifications of poses so you can find ways for your body to respond and to breathe your way into an easeful posture. In addition to your asana practice, we focus on "living your yoga" - connecting mind, body and spirit to enhance your life and the lives of those around you.
