Cincy Chic: What’s new at Worthy Yoga since we last chatted in June?
Brenda Westfall, Owner of Worthy Yoga: We have added two new classes to the schedule for 2018. There may be more to come as we are growing. We added an All Levels Class on Mondays at 5:30 with Lauren Pax. Here’s a description of Lauren’s class: Join fellow Young Professionals in a special one-hour young adult yoga flow. Each Vinyasa Flow class will be approaching and ope for all yoga practitioners. Lauren invites students to email her with their practice intentions before the class to help create a purposeful, community-centric practice. Together, we will use the power of prayer and mindful movement to manifest blessings.
We have also added a 9 am Thursday morning class with Amy Erickson called Balance + Restore. Here is a description of that offering: We live in a world that badgers us to work faster, be more efficient, try harder, and strive to win at all costs. I want Balance + Restore to be an oasis that offers opportunities to rectify the effects of stress on our lives – opportunities to be still, slow down, and wake up to the truth of the love and grace God has in abundance for us. Each class will include space for breathing in the goodness and grace of God and letting go of negative thoughts, listening to God speak through a passage of scripture, learning yoga postures that open our hearts to God’s transforming power, and resting in the reality of God’s love for us.
Cincy Chic: Tell us more about your Half-Day Retreats!
Westfall: These Half-Day Retreats have been very popular and fill up quite quickly. We are all on a journey of knowing more about who God is and knowing who we are. Retreats provide us with space to experience the integration of our heart, soul, mind, and spirit through yoga and, most recently, Expressive Arts. The Creator created us with an innate desire for expression. Our retreats each have a different theme/intention. We usually bring in special guests to share a multitude of modalities to deepen our understandings of who we are and why we are here.
Cincy Chic: Is there anything else new happening at Worthy Yoga?
Westfall: God is constantly making things new and giving us ideas for building community, serving community, and going deeper as well as creating space to be still. We have a partner yoga workshop for couples coming up February 10 as well as a workshop for golfers later in March. We have book studies, girl’s nights out, and private yoga group events. We are planning a workshop for anxiety and headaches and planning on offering prenatal classes in the future.
