KATIE'S WOMEN'S CLASS
is a fun ALL LEVELS class for women ~ and kids with the willingness to do yoga with mom. It starts at and is over by or (depending on the number of kids). This is a class where egos should definitely be left at the door; exploring strengths and weaknesses together and using both to improve our bodies, minds, and souls :)

Breathe Stretch Renew
Kimoodo is a healing martial art similar to Tai Chi. It's practiced slowly to balance internal energy and build core strength. Based in techniques used by Asian martial artists, this practice combines stretching, breathing, and meditation to improve flexibility, circulation, and mental concentration.
Kimoodo for Health and Relaxation is appropriate for all fitness levels, and no experience is necessary. Drop in once to de-stress or come every week and start working the practice into your everyday life.
Thursdays 9:45am Begining Oct 3rd

Yoga Happy Hour
Fridays 6:00pm - 7:15pm
Unwind from the week. Link breath to motion and clear the mind while increasing strength and flexibility. Open to all fitness levels: individuals who have gotten away from exercise but are now ready to tune into the body, as well as athletes who wish to cross-train and increase flexibility. Its a group class, but thorough individual instruction, adjustments and modifications will be given as needed to meet the needs of all students.
Capoeira now starts at 7:15pm instead of 7:00 on Fridays.
(Wednesdays 7:30 - 9:00, same as before)
VIRTUES FIRST is the charitable arms of Cincinnati Yoga School and fully funds a free elementary school for impoverished children in Punjab, India. We recently started a free lunch program at the school and hope to secure that it may continue. Thanks to the generous donations that come in from CYS yoga students we have secured a few more months of this operation.
We hope that you will feel good about coming to yoga at CYS not just because of the great classes but also because the asana yoga you do here will keep the karma yoga going there.

The school is thrilled to have the lunch program but they also have an incredibly modest wish list. Could you possibly help to make their wishes come true?
Go to www.VirtuesFirstProjects.com to see
the wish list and/or make an online donation.
Its pretty simple really. If the schools are closed in the CYS area then CYS will be closed as well. If it is on the weekend we will post here on our website. However sometimes we are not able to post it in time; so if in doubt you can call us at 513-247-9642
NEVER LEAVE VALUABLES VISABLE IN YOUR CAR
Its been a while but from time to time cars have been broken into. Each and every time it has been a purse clearly visible sitting in the passenger seat.
Please only park in the lot at St. Peters Church (across thr street from CYS) when you cannot find a spot in the CYS lot or the adjacent street.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
All the Prophets are the Temples of the Cause of God, Who have appeared clothed in divers attire. If thou wilt observe with discriminating eyes, thou wilt behold Them all abiding in the same tabernacle, soaring in the same heaven, seated upon the same throne, uttering the same speech, and proclaiming the same Faith.
Such is the unity of those Essences of Being, those Luminaries of infinite and immeasurable splendor!
Wonderful funky atmosphere (it used to be an old Masonic Lodge and a lot of the accouterments were left to the present tennant). I came for the Yin Yoga (super stretching) class and was not disappointed. Will taught the class and it was tough but real authentic. He was humble, kindly, and very much an expert but without any arrogance and with a whole lot of caring. Yes, there were times when I thought I could not hold on but giving it the "old college try" paid off handsomely. I was a new woman the next day! Aches and pains large and small were erased,even tiny ones I had accommodated were lost! I am definitely making the CYS part of my weekly routine even if it is a little bit extra, it is so very worth it. Nice lineup of other teachers and styles there, too. Go and try it out, I think you will be impressed.
