Sense of Community
TYS offers a safe place for like minded individuals to come together and practice Yoga “Participating in yoga classes can ease loneliness and provide an environment for group healing and support. Even during one-on-one sessions loneliness is reduced as one is acknowledged as a unique individual, being listened to and participating in the creation of a personalized yoga plan.”

How we feel affects how we breathe and how we breathe affects how we feel. Through breath work and Pranayama, Yoga seeks to teach students to connect with their breath. It also teaches that having control over their breath has the ability to give them some power over how they feel.
Yoga with GSB is so good. Not only do I feel refreshed when leaving, but I feel inspired. The classes are well balanced with a lot of modifications to find what works best for all who come. Yoga helped me to feel better in my own body after surgery, giving me the outlet to move but with safe and considerate instruction.

Kristin lead a great yoga practice, learning how to lengthen my breath was incredibly valuable to me and their knowledge of oils was very helpful to all in the class. I am incredibly glad that I chose to step out of my box and try something new with these ladies and look forward to more educational opportunities with them in the future

I’ve been taking yoga with the ladies from GSB for over a year and have been so blessed to grow my yoga practice with these lovely instructors. These ladies listen to the little details about my life and know how to bring that into my yoga practice, making me feel like it was just what I needed. I love growing with these ladies and am so thankful for this community they have created.

I attended the Mala making and intention setting workshop at the beginning of 2021. Thank you very much! This was a great workshop! Very well done and provided useful techniques for deeper focus and healthy breathing which were delivered in an excellent manner. I would highly recommend your workshop to anyone that is interested in improving their ability to deal with today’s stressful world.

I attended the Mala bead & intention setting class at the beginning of 2021. The environment was incredibly safe and Covid friendly without compromising the welcome and personable feeling one hopes for. Laura was incredibly patient and knowledgeable about the purpsefullnes of the beads and how to construct our pocket Malas.
