Every day gravity does it’s best to draw us down to the ground. AcroYoga is a natural extension of our practice. It teaches us to turn ourselves upside down, and lift one another up. By connecting with our core through the hands and feet and trusting each other, we gain confidence to raise ourselves and others towards the sky. Whether you are brand new to AcroYoga or looking for more work on the basics come learn, play and fly with the Acro community at Centered Studios.
*You are never too heavy, or too old to explore AcroYoga!
A system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath with a progressive series of postures—a process producing internal heat and a purifying sweat that detoxifies muscles and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light + strong body, and a calm mind. For experienced practitioners and athletic beginners who are seeking a more dynamic, physical practice.
Imagine the tranquil sound of waves gently crashing as the moon slowly disappears from view; the sun quietly warming your skin as it rises; the pleasant song of birds in flight; the calm breeze embracing your skin – this is beach yoga in Rogers Park.

Let's meet at the basketball court, just south of Touhy near the parking lot at Loyola Beach Park – did we mention, there’s a parking lot? Available June - August; weather permitting.

This Yin Yoga - Vinyasa hybrid combines the best of both styles. Alternating between strengthening flows (vinyasa) and deeply opening postures (asanas) we increase vibrancy and peace, strength and flexibility, awareness and clarity. The teacher will lead practitioners through conscious use of breath and gravity to enrich and deepen the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual experience of the postures and flows in ways that can be used throughout daily life. When we rest in a stretching position for 3 or more minutes we begin to open up the deepest layers of facia; here we release long-held energy (sometimes even from childhood); mental or emotional catharsis often occur, leaving us more at ease, of greater clarity and of widened and inspiring perspective.
