Please allow ~15 minutes before class to check in and let the teacher know any issues. If you would like to discuss your issues in greater detail, contact Emily for a Complimentary Consultation where we'll take about 30 minutes to discuss your health concerns and goals, plus get any questions you may have answered.

What to do next:

  • Arrive ~10 minutes before class to sign up
  • Wear comfortable clothing you can move in easily.
  • If possible, try not to eat for a few hours before class.
  • Please avoid wearing any strong scents like perfume, essential oils or even laundry detergent/softener, as we do A LOT of breathing :).


Gentle Yoga for Health
Keep the body & mind strong with this slow, gentle and balanced yoga class to support optimal health. Includes guided breath-work, joint-freeing movements, poses for strength-building, gentle stretches for flexibility, and meditation.

Gentle Yoga + Back Care
A slow and gentle class to support optimal health. Includes restorative poses using props and cushions to reduce stress, improve flexibility and restructure the body. Extra care taken to support back issues.

The MELT Method®
The MELT Method®, also called Hands Off Bodywork™, is an innovative self-treatment system that provides similar benefits to therapeutic massage and helps you feel younger by rebalancing your nervous system and rehydrating your connective tissue (fascia). Learn simple techniques you can do at home using specialized small balls and a soft body roller. In just 10 minutes, three times a week, you can make noticeable sustainable changes. Everyone can benefit from MELT and there is no particular fitness or strength requirement. MELT doesn't actually involve any big rolling movements, rather, it is more about positioning and small movements. Please bring a bottle of water and sip water frequently throughout the day before class for best results. If you are challenged to get on and off the floor, or have any other questions, please arrive early to talk with Joyce before class or email her, joyce.peirce@gmail.com

Please come with an open regard, comfortable clothes, and cozy socks for the wooden floor. We ask for a $5 donation to support the studio for their generosity in providing sacred space for us.
