The Morning Practice

The Morning Practice

Monday – Wednesday – Friday 5:30am – 6:30am EST

Start the Day off Right with the Morning Practice with Liza Savage-Katz!

The Morning Practice consists of yoga, meditation, and writing and is open to everyone who has a desire to improve their life. By creating an early morning routine of yoga, meditation, and creative writing, participants are enabled to create a clear and conscious beginning to each day, thus setting themselves up for success.

The 60-minute practice is divided into an approximately 40-minute yoga practice based on the Astanga primary series, followed by a 10-minute meditation and a 10 minute “morning pages” writing exercise. Morning pages is an exercise of writing 3 pages of longhand on whatever you need or want to get out on paper. It can be a to-do list, a brain dump of the clutter taking up space in your head, or that book that you have been wanting to write for years and is eating away at you. In a year of 10 minutes of daily writing, you will have that book!

Yoga, the oldest science for self-improvement known to humankind optimizes our health, bringing the body, mind, breath, and spirit into balance for inner sustainability.

Please register by 8pm the evening before the class you wish to attend. You will receive an email with the Zoom link no later than 1 hour prior to the start of class. Never attended via Zoom before? Click HERE for detailed instructions on how to attend virtually!

Yin Yoga

SATURDAYS 1:15pm – 2:15pm

Come join our inclusive yin yoga practice! All are welcome and no prior yoga experience is required. Please come prepared for a safe and welcoming environment with a yoga mat, blanket, and water.

This is a class about showing up for whatever life has in store! It’s Yin Yoga your way!

What is Yin Yoga, and why do it? Yin yoga is a style of yoga that aims to increase mobility and flexibility by targeting the deepest tissues in our body; namely, the joints, ligaments and layers of fascia that are embedded throughout. This is accomplished through long held, static poses, typically done seated or lying down. Often, people will describe Yin Yoga as deep stretching.

The Yin practice is a wonderful compliment to more vigorous yoga practices or activities such as running, cycling, and hiking. The practice is suitable and encouraged for all levels of practitioners.

Class is available in-person and via Zoom

Vinyasa Yoga

Sundays 11am – 12pm

The practice is designed for the athlete at heart. Yoga, the oldest science for self-improvement known to humankind, can optimize any athletic workout to bring the body, mind, breath, and spirit into balance. This practice is open to everyone who has a desire to improve their life. By creating a routine of yoga & meditation, participants are enabled to create a clear and conscious day, thus setting themselves up for success.

This class is inspired by the Ashtanga Yoga’s primary series. This dynamic method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures. Synchronizing breathing and movement in the asanas (postures) heats the blood, cleaning and thinning it so that it may circulate more freely. Improved blood circulation relieves joint pain and removes toxins and disease from the internal organs. Through the use of vinyasa, the body becomes healthy, light and strong (“Ashtanga Yoga”). The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind. The regular sequence will allow the student to witness marked results with this practice. The satisfaction of the seeing the once impossible become possible is truly wonderful to experience and witness.

Class is available in-person and via Zoom

People doing yoga with goats

Goat Yoga

Saturdays 9am – 10am

Join us for morning yoga with our little goats! Start your day with Sun Salutations and snuggles. We are a working farm, so we have dirt, machinery, and our babes are real goats with horns and hooves, so be careful! Bring a yoga mat and clothes that you don’t mind getting hoof prints on. Guest appearances with bunnies, kittens, and other loving farm animals.

Liza leads a yoga class, as usual, except in an enclosed space in the studio barn or outdoor area (weather permitting) that is shared with playful little dwarf goats—which all have free reign to participate in the class however they see fit!

It is therapeutic to spend some time on a beautiful farm, in the open air, with amazing little creatures, away from the stresses of everyday life. All ages welcome (2 to 92+). Anyone under the age of 14 must have an adult present. Parents/ guardians that participate must pay for the class.

Class is available in-person and via Zoom

Saturdays 9:00am – 10:00am

Body Love yoga photo

 Body Love Yoga

Body Love Yoga is about falling in love with your physical form. To honor and praise it. To find a deep appreciation for it.
You can be at any stage of a relationship with yourself to come to class. You may know you are a divine being gracing this earth with your presence, or you may be experiencing guilt or shame about the skin you’re in. Either way, this class will help you remove the blocks keeping you from loving your body and support you on your journey of body love.
I will guide you though calming breathwork, meditation, and poses that will aid you on the journey of self love. This class is a gentle space, but will give you the option to build some heat.

Are you a caregiver for an individual who has OWPDD self-direction services? KaleidoscopeME provides neurodiverse private and group yoga classes for all ages. We have 20 years of combined experience serving the neurodiverse community! If you are interested in learning more, please check with your FI agency to ensure the class can be covered through your budget.–
