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!"

Chair Yoga

Wednesday at 1:00-2:00pm

Chair yoga is one of the gentlest forms available and offers all of the benefits of other yoga classes. Founded on mindfulness of the breath, body, mind & heart, this class encourages students to find a balance between support and challenge. A series of options are given for the postures, allowing students to develop their yoga practice using the chair for balance and support, without having to get up or down from the floor. Chair yoga reduces stress while increasing strength, flexibility, range of motion & balance. All bodies are welcome, and no experience is necessary.  Led by Kathryn Gardner, RSMT & RYT. 

Very Gentle Flow

Monday at 9:00-10:15am. 

Taught by Susan Kane this class is designed for those who are new to yoga and those with some experience who desire a slow paced class.  

Susan guides her students through a substantial warm up using a mindfulness approach to develop mind-body-breath awareness. Once the body is warmed up, Susan gently leads yoga stretches and asanas, with the goal of helping her students experience the many benefits a yoga practice offers. Susan's cheery disposition, honest laughter and thoughtful planning create a safe, fun and enriching  yoga class. 

Gentle Flow

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 Flow
