Welcome to our Yoga Studio

Welcome to our Yoga Studio!

Well-being, Calmness, Flexibility

All are invited to every class, beginners and seasoned. 95% of people can attend any class that we offer. Class descriptions are listed below. Please feel free to give us a call or stop by with any other questions you may have.

We believe yoga is about acceptance, joy, groundedness, a spiritual journey, giving back, breath, movement, and meditation. We believe these words equal LIFE. Our hope is to make these words meaningful and impactful in your life, and our own.                                                                     

                       

Class Descriptions and Benefits:

Hatha Yoga involves a set of asanas (physical postures) and breathing techniques. These are typically practiced more slowly and with more static posture holds than a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class. All levels are encouraged to attend. Beginners are more than welcome. If time permits, class will end with a short reiki segment.

Restorative Yoga is a restful practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. It's a peaceful practice that holds asanas (yoga poses) for a longer duration using props like yoga blocks, blankets, and bolsters. It is a practice of deep relaxation that emphasizes the meditative aspect of yoga—the union of body and mind. All levels are encouraged. 

Vinyasa Flow Vinyasa yoga links movement with breath. In this class, we will move through balance, strength, and grounding poses to deepen the mind/body connection, reduce stress, and develop range of motion and strength. Use of props and modifications are provided to accommodate individual practices and promote self-compassion. This class is for all levels.

Kids Yoga. This 45-minute class is intended for 3-10 year olds. They will strengthen their bodies through yoga poses as well as play fun yoga games. They will also learn mindfulness activities, useful breathing exercises and relaxation/visualization techniques. All of this happens while having fun, laughing, and fostering their imaginations! Taught by a mom of two young children of her own.

Shelby Pheonix 

Yoga's most significant impact on my life was its revelation of the profound connection between my mind and body. This realization led me on a path of self-awareness and self-discovery, prompting me to seek a deeper understanding of my mental health beyond just anxiety.

I am dedicated to personal growth and lifelong learning. My ideal student is open to curiosity, embracing a growth mindset, and exploring their limits. I prioritize authenticity, encourage self-empowerment, emphasize self-compassion, and promote the practice of gratitude.

I tailor each class to the students present, adjusting the intensity and offering modifications for a fun and diverse experience. I don't take myself or the practice too seriously, prioritizing laughter and challenge.

I want my students to leave my classes feeling both challenged and relaxed, achieving a balance of physical and mental wellness. My ultimate goal as a yoga teacher is to help individuals make small transformations and take back their power, fostering growth and self-empowerment in each student.

Liz Hosman 

Liz is a RYT® 200 and NASM Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and is thrilled to bring her energy to The Iron Cactus community.

Off the mat, you can find her supporting local families as a Postpartum Doula ((PCD) DONA) with Birthing Gently.
