Erin's Personal Experience

Erin has completed numerous events as an endurance athlete including road races of various lengths; 5ks, half marathons and the Cape Cod marathon (26.2 miles). She has also competed in triathlons including the Timberman 1/2 Ironman (1 mile swim, 50 mile bike ride, 13 mile run). Through training for these various events, Erin has come to recognize the amazing strength and endurance of both the human body and the mind.  Whether or not one is an athlete, we often ask a lot of our bodies on a daily basis. Erin understands that while we expect and demand performance from our bodies, we must also balance that with an equal or greater amount of self-care, athletes and non-athletes alike.  


Erin believes that we must honor our bodies and minds with mindful living. This means moving and eating mindfully throughout our day and learning to manage stress . In today’s world these goals have become difficult to achieve without specific intentions. Here at the studio, Erin and her colleagues will support you in setting any intention towards better health.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole run and I attribute that to you and your training. Thanks again for teaching me that YES I CAN!"

Farm Fresh Yoga Retreat

Farm Fresh Yoga Retreat at Beech Hill Farm

Saturday August 3rd

9:00am - 3:00pm

Investment: $75.00


Join us for a unique retreat experience at Beech Hill Farm in Waterford, Maine.  The day will begin with a morning yoga practice on the lawn over-looking the farm fields, bison herd and mountains. The outdoor experience will remind our senses of our deep connection with the natural world.  We will later nourish our bodies with a local, farm-fresh lunch and tour the gardens the produce was picked from.  After lunch, we will use creative and mindful practices to tap into our inner wisdom. It will be a truly organic experience!  The outdoors experience will leave you feeling both revitalized and grounded. 


Yoga on the Lawn: Mindful Breath & Movement

Led by Erin Girzone, 200-RYT, we will reconnect with ourselves using the breath, an ever-present symbol of our vitality that we often overlook. We will honor our bodies and all they do for us as we move through various yoga poses/stretches. Our intention will be to awaken to our roots in the natural world and get to know our inner space.


Farm Fresh Lunch:

After the yoga practice, we will nourish our bodies with a lunch featuring local produce and freshly baked bread from Beech Hill Farm. 


Earth and Body: Finding Wisdom Within

When we lose our connection to ground, we lose a deep resource that lives inside us.  Led by Kathryn Gardner, RSMT, RYT,  we will deepen into the body, reconnect with our basic nature and return to a sense of connection with the earth.  Our bodies hold deep wisdom for transforming our lives & the planet. In this workshop we will:

  • Lean into the natural environment as a way to relax the body and connect to spirit 
  • Use creative and mindful practices - movement, drawing, guided meditation & deep listening - to reconnect with body, heart & soul 
  •  Open a dialogue with the wisdom that lives within your body to find guidance toward greater health for you and the earth


Reserve your space by July 31st. On the Reservations page, select "Workshops" from the menu to find the retreat. Space is limited to 15 participants.

Gentle Yoga

Thursday at 9:00-10:15am. 

Taught by Erin Girzone, this  class is designed for those who are new to yoga and for those with some experience who desire a slower paced class and gentle transitions between poses.  

Erin encourages her students to see each pose/posture as an opportunity to find stability and strength and then to notice where they begin to feel the body stretching. Throughout class Erin brings her students awareness back to the breath, always emphasizing the power of the breath as a tool to invite the mind to focus and the body to open. 


Moderate Yoga

Restorative Yoga

Last  Wednesday of each month at 5:00-6:15pm

Taught by Erin Girzone, this class takes place lying down on the mat where students are fully supported by props in a handful of poses. Erin guides students into these poses for extended lengths of time and while there, she holds the space for the body and mind to relax and restore. The intention of restorative yoga is to encourage a shift into "relaxation mode," allowing students' energy to be used for restoring balance and peace to the body and mind. This is a great monthly reset!
