Yoga Sadhana Challenge

June 18, 2019
It’s time to sign up for this year’s challenge. Partake in as many classes as you can, try out different styles, kick start your yoga practice, or just have fun.

Once again, holiday season is upon us. After the madness of the season subsides, many of us are ready to begin to recommit to Yoga once again, making class passes and gift certificates from Chill, a timely reminder to get back on our mats!

We offer a $25 discount on $120 10 class passes bought between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. Buy them for yourselves as well as friends and family.

Alternatively, gift certificates are available in any denomination you choose. These can be applied to any of our packages, whether it’s for a Drop In or 2, an Introductory Pass or Regular class passes.

You can conveniently order them HERE to be emailed to recipients on a date of your choosing.

Whichever you choose you can order them online and can be emailed directly to the recipient at a date of your choosing

If you’d prefer to gift a Paper Certificate, you can purchase them from us at the Studio, or arrange a convenient time

It’s been a busy summer for us at Chill Yoga. We’ve enjoyed the sunny days, July’s Sadhana Challenge and Beach Yoga. As we start to shift gears into the fall – and some of our teachers take a break. We have the following cancellations to announce.

Welcome!

May 24, 2018

Welcome to our new website!

Heidi and I are very excited that our new (and very much improved website) is now live. A big thank you to one of our former teachers, Leigh Olesen, who has brought this incarnation into being.  This upgrade has been long overdue, and we’ve used this time to improve our studio management systems and a whole host of other delights of managing the business side of our space. In truth, we’d much rather be spending our time in classes with you, studying or practicing our craft!

It’s also been valuable as we’ve reflected on what Chill has become. It started as a place where Heidi and I could offer our classes in one space; we’d hitherto been offering classes at an assortment of places, and it was Alice Ruvane’s presence that brought us into consolidating our classes into one space offering a full schedule of classes. Over the intervening 11 years, we have been joined by many other teachers and students whose energies have all contributed greatly into providing a dedicated home for Yoga in the twin cities.

For the greater part, we have deliberately chosen not to show images of ourselves or students practicing in social media, because we feel that these images tend to make yoga practice seem unattainable to the less lithe, flexible types.  In reality, our students are a diverse crew spanning 8 decades, all genders, physiques and fitness levels, and we do our best to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable in class. It’s been wonderful to see how this has flourished into a caring community of friends who are united by their enjoyment of Yoga.

This blog is a new addition to our social media offerings, and its purpose in the site is to keep you up to date with workshops, schedule changes and other musings which we think will be of interest to you.

Many thanks for being part of Chill Yoga
