All online offerings are available by donation.  For those who have entered a time of hardship, there is no expectation of payment. For those who are more well-resourced at this moment, your donation will help to cover ongoing studio costs during the closure. While this is a challenging time for many small businesses, we are working hard to ensure that our doors will open once again when the time is right. Thank you!





 

While it’s always nice to practice in person, I’ve been busy putting together a schedule for the next best thing: live classes via Zoom, and audio recordings. The Zoom download is free for class participants, and, don’t worry, I’ll have your video and sound turned off, so you can take class in your pajamas. You will need to pre-register for the class, which you can do by clicking on the invitation links below. (It’s ok to sign up even if you’re not sure you’ll make it.  Just hop in any time you can!) If  you’re new to Zoom, you may want to download on your device before signing up. If you feel confused by the technology, it’s ok, and you’re not alone! Feel free to reach out.  And don’t mind the end date.  I’ve set the classes to run continuously until such time as we are able to gather again. For those not inclined to or able to stream online, I’m also recording some audio meditations and classes.  More of these will be available soon. These offerings may change or grow with time, so please feel free to offer your feedback.

A 10 minute practice- Meditation and Dirgha Pranayama with Kate

Shelburne Falls Yoga serves students of all levels, ranging in age from 3 to 93. Everyone is welcome here! Our beautiful and spacious studio overlooks the Deerfield River and Salmon Falls, and our dedicated and experienced teachers are committed to helping you work toward greater health, well-being, and self-awareness through skilled instruction in yoga, movement, and meditation.

We actively foster an environment in which your goals, needs, and intuitive wisdom take precedence over external performance or conforming to outside instruction. We value the process of inquiry and honor the multi-faceted, ancient, and evolving tradition of yoga. Compassionate self-observation is at the core of our offerings, and we engage in an ongoing exploration of how this core can be extended outward in acknowledgement of the collective needs of our shared world.

Our studio is a beloved place of respite and community gathering for many, where you will also learn and practice skills in body and mind that can serve you in your health, work, and relationships throughout your lifetime. We hope you will join us!

A note:  Yes, we do have two Kate's here at Shelburne Falls Yoga! And we both have French last names beginning with  "P", which has confused a few folks.  SFY Director Kate Pousont Scarborough teaches the weekday morning classes at 8:30, Monday afternoon gentle class, Tuesday and Thursday evening classes, noontime co-op yoga, and the individual yoga and bodywork sessions.   Kate Peppard teaches Saturday morning yoga, Tuesday noon yoga, and Friday evening monthly restorative.  We hope you'll come meet us both!

 

Fragrance-Free Studio Reminder

It has been a common practice for yoga spaces to provide a haven for individuals with chemical sensitivies, and Shelburne Falls Yoga is no exception.  We have been "fragrance free" for more than a decade.  For those who are not prone to such sensitivities it can be easy to forget. For those who are, practicing in an enclosed space next to a perfume wearer can have significant health impacts that last well beyond class time.
There are quite a few members of our studio community who have this level of sensitivity to scented products, including some of your teachers.  Please remember to refrain from wearing perfumes, scented lotions, hair products, and laundry detergents when visiting the yoga studio. Scented dryer sheets are another common culprit.
Also, please remember that we do ask students to refrain from attending class with contagious illnesses like cold or flu for similar health reasons. In both cases, this can be a wonderful opportunity to lean into the practice ahimsa (non-harming) and to help ensure that the studio remains a place of health and healing for all. We thank you in advance for your consideration!
