Upcoming Events at the Studio
We welcome you to Namasté Yoga, and are excited to offer these wonderful events and programs listed below, in addition to our regularly scheduled classes.
We look forward to having you join us!
Saturday, December 28th, 3:00–5:00 p.m. Pure Rhythm Tallahassee with Amber Ryan
The 5Rhythms® (Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness) are a dynamic, cathartic moving meditation practice. Each rhythm is an energetic state of being. When we learn to embody each rhythm we find that we are able to move through life with more strength and grace, and we are more present and awake to what comes our way. We are able to quiet down and listen to the wisdom that is alive within us, to express our truth in a way that words cannot, to release old patterns of our past and arrive into a place of greater freedom and creative expression.
Amber Ryan is a healing artist with an embodiment and articulation of the 5Rhythms that inspires depth and expansion. Her musical journeys deliver us into the heart & soul of our own beat; her leadership invites us to share our uniqueness in community. She is currently touring the US and soon Eastern Europe sharing her love for the dance. Cost: $20 if by December 14, $25 after. To preregister send an email to Gretchen at firstname.lastname@example.org AND send a check, made payable to Gretchen Hein to 1548 Chuli Nene, Tallahassee, FL, 32301. Questions? Contact Amy McDowell at (850) 294-9495. We hope you’ll join us on the dance floor.

FREE (donation) CLASS on Fridays!
Namasté Yoga offers this donation class as a gift to our community every Friday from 5:30–6:30 p.m., with optional live gong music 6:30–6:50. The class is open to everyone—those new to yoga, as well as current Namasté or other yoga students. All community yoga classes are taught at a gentle level and are accessible to all. If you’ve been curious about a particular style of yoga, our community class offers you an easy way to experience something new. You will have an opportunity to experience a different teacher each week, teaching her particular style of yoga. Just come and donate whatever amount you can, or accept the class as a gift. All donations for the class will go to the Refuge House, a local organization that provides direct services to battered women, their children and sexual assault survivors, as well as works to eliminate the conditions in society that allow such violence to continue. No pre-registration is necessary. Please try to enter class by 5:25 p.m. so the class can begin on time.
Seva is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service,” a core tenet of yoga and part of Namasté’s vision to support and contribute to our community in a positive way. This class is part of Namasté’s seva, reminding us of our connection to others. It is a spiritual practice that expands the hearts of the giver and receiver. Please spread the word about the class and plan to join us.
