Yoga in Sanskrit means “union". All yoga classes are built on this foundation but none quite like a family class. This is a light-hearted, relaxed class with a focus on balance and coordination as we stretch our bodies and our minds. Expect traditional yoga poses, flowing sequences, and breathing exercises to help balance the stresses of school, work, and life. Come laugh and move in a safe and happy environment for all ages.
We are so excited and grateful to be in collaboration with our friends at the Black Hills Farmer's Market. Our talented and friendly Sōl instructors will be leading a yoga experience each Saturday in June, July and August at 9:00am. This will be an all-levels, all-ages, donation-based class. Feel free to stay for the entire experience, or pop in and out as your schedule and body allow! Bring your own yoga mat, a blanket or towel. If the weather is rainy, class will be cancelled.

*Teacher in Training & New Teacher Classes: It is important to us here at Sōl to provide a platform for teachers to get out there and begin teaching. The biggest hurdle that a new teacher faces is to simply begin! Sōl Yoga Collective is unique in their support of new teachers by removing the obstacle of "auditioning" before being allowed to lead a class. True learning comes from doing. This is our aim here. We hope you will come to show your support and cheer our new teachers on. Every talented and impactful teacher was once brand new.
Yoga for Men: A little less heart-centered, a little more chest centered, Yoga for Men focuses more on the physical and less on the ethereal. Although geared toward men, women are also welcome! Bring your sweaty self, no deodorant required, shaving optional.
Yoga for Educators: This class is open and available to anyone! We wanted to offer a convenient time of day for those teachers who are also parents and have a small window of time to practice between work and picking children up from daycare. The instructor is a retired educator who will support, nurture and speak to experiences that educators (and likely ALL humans) can relate to.
Yin Yoga: A slow and deep practice perfect for anyone seeking balance in a constantly moving, multi-tasking and fast paced world. Yin yoga is a practice of floor work, fewer poses, held for a longer duration of time to target connective tissue and facilitate deep release. It is also based on the philosophy of using compression and gentle therapeutic stretch to allow free flow movement of energy through the organs and energy meridians in our body. Using the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and yoga asana to work with balancing and unblocking our energy meridians. Find relaxation, stress relief and a deeper connection to your authentic self.
Qigong: (chee-gung) Qi = "energy" Gong = "work". Classes will include a variety of qigong exercises that utilize movement, stretching, breathing, visualization and meditation. Through the use of these methods, students will learn to cultivate, move and develop their awareness of the energy known as qi.
Strong & Centered: A slower paced, strength based class with a focus on core strength. An exploration into the relationship between a strong center, stability in movement and openness in the body.
Sōl Sunday: Spend 90 minutes of your Sunday morning in reverence with and for yourself. Come to be with your body, your breath and your heart - creating the practice that best honors what you need that day. An opportunity to slow down, get present and re-connect.
