Chair Yoga with Terri

Yoga is for every body but not every class is the right one for you.

Unsure about yoga, but wish to learn some stretches you can do anywhere? Overwhelmed at the thought of joining a large yoga class? Worried about your ability to get up and down from the floor?

Put your worries aside and come try chair yoga at Soulistic Sisters Studio. Feel better in your body, feel comfortable in your surroundings. Certified senior/chair yoga teacher, Terri will lead you through a series of body opening stretches from the safety and comfort of your own chair. Perfect for anyone recovering from an injury (with doctor's permission of course) or who is unsure of their balance, or who doesn't like the thought of taking their shoes off and using a mat in a regular class. It will even give seasoned yogis a deeper stretch.

Using the chair allows you to feel the confidence and support of the chair beneath you, and to move past limitations, yet still feel the benefits of a good stretch. Invite in ease, peace + greater flexibility. Your body will thank you! Space is limited. $10

No experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothes and something warm and dry on your feet. BYo water.

Time Out to Tune In

Join Terri for this mindfulness based stretch and meditation class. In our busy world it is oftentimes hard to make time to slow down and tune in to our bodies and our breath. So think of this as your forced "time out" to come to our quiet studio, and practice Terri's techniques for feeling your body from the inside out to see if they will work for you.

We will be stretching our bodies in key tension filled areas, neck, shoulders, arms, chest, hips and observing how these easy stretches make us feel. Expect to leave feeling refreshed and open. No yoga mat required for this class as we will be using chairs as our base. Many of these stretches can be practiced at your desk, in your car or wherever you are. We will end with a guided meditation to set the peaceful tone for the rest of your weekend. 

No experience is necessary. Every body is welcome. Class size is limited.

Intro to Art Journaling Using Mixed Media

Intro to Art Journaling Using Mixed Media

Join Terri & Kitty for this introductory workshop into mixed media art journaling.  Mixed media journals are beautiful/therapeutic expressions of your innermost feelings.

Open up new pathways and possibilities within yourself as you tap into your inner artist igniting a fire of creativity and confidence. In this very personal exploratory process, there are no wrong lines, no mistakes, and no wrong way to do it, just a chance to uniquely express your thoughts, feelings and artistic style.

We will begin with a short meditation, then get our hands dirty as we create one page in our blank journal using our supplies. Participants will leave with a journal of their own, along with prompt ideas and a supply list needed to continue the practice at home.

No experience is necessary. This is a perfect intro to journaling for those who think "I am not creative", for those who love to find new ways to express themselves creatively, or for a positive way to tune in and let out pent up feelings and emotions. It is also a bonus way to recycle old art supplies into a new use.

Saturday, February 17 | 2:00-4:00 pm | $25

This class is limited to 12 participants, sign up early to get your spot. If you would rather pay at the event via cash or check, please send an email to terri@getoffgo.com to reserve your spot.

Paired Partner Exploratory Workshop

Join us for an exploratory workshop using paired partner exercises to strengthen body and mind, and improve focus, balance and self-awareness. This workshop will be led by Scott Van Der Velde and Hung Le from the Michigan Daito Ryu Study Group at Yushinkan Dojo here in GR. They are passionate about bringing this art to a larger audience and to explore its impact on yoga and other practices.

Based on the 1200-year-old samurai martial art Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu, which focuses on subtle manipulations of balance, you will be introduced to a mindset that can transform any practice (martial arts, yoga, or otherwise) and even impact how present you are in your own body and life.  

Daito Ryu, once secret and passed from generation to generation through the Takeda clan, originated in India and moved through China before arriving in Japan. This workshop will be mindfulness based, rather than technique based, and will center around a six direction energy practice which will help you tune into your body, release tension and stress, and improve your balance in life.

Cost for this event is a suggested donation of $10. Dress comfortably. You do not need to come with a partner, we will be paired up and will be working with each other and with other students from the Dojo. We are limiting this first workshop to 10 people due to our space limitations.

Best Life Series: A Happier You

Best Life Series: A Happier You

Ever wonder what vibe you are giving off ?

Life can be stressful and hectic and we sometimes get so busy we stop fueling our positivity, we forgo our fun for accomplishment, and we dim our own light sending off a negative vibe instead of a positive one.

You can set the tone for a happier you by making time to raise your vibration.  At this participatory workshop you will learn ways to shift your energy into Joy, Peace + Positivity.

Terri will lead this FUN workshop featuring meditation, creativity/art, dancing and an exercise in finding gratitude. Class is limited to 8 participants.

Wondering exactly what your vibration is? Your vibration is the energy you give off to the world, your "vibe". Everything in the universe is made up of energy vibrating at different frequencies. You are made up of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual energy. When your vibration is low you may be struggling with a variety of problems: physical pain, money issues, depression, or anxiety and when your vibration is high, you may feel you are in the flow of life, full of optimism, joy, peace + purpose. Since like attracts like, per the law of attraction, it is important to keep your energy vibration high to attract joy and live in the flow of life, releasing struggle and stress.

Come spend an evening refueling YOU! (You are so worth it). Remember to dress comfortably.

Boho Inspired Wall Hanging Workshop

Join Terri for this workshop where you will create your own Boho Inspired wall hanging. Decide in advance on a place in your home to hang your creation, then choose colors and textures to accent that space. There is no wrong way to make this, and no previous experience is required, anyone can do it! Every single wall hanging that has been created in our studio has been unique and beautiful.

We have all the sticks, yarn, ribbon, beads, etc you might wish to use in your creation, however sometimes your wall hanging is even more special if you add your own mementos. Recycle and reuse broken necklace charms or other unused pieces of jewelry, they work great and add just the right personal touch.

Register and pay using the form below or if you prefer to pay at the event (we take cash or check), send an email to terri@getoffgo.com to reserve your place.

Three Words to Live By Workshop

Three Words to Live By Workshop

Set the tone for a new year that will help you grow into your best self. New Year's resolutions are always made with great intentions, yet easily broken or forgotten within a few weeks after setting them. Why not try a more organic approach this year? Use the three words to live by method.

With a little help from Terri in the form of a meditation and questions to help you tune in, and your own intuition, you will choose three words that form the parameters of your 2018.  This will allow you plenty of room to grow, expand and explore in your own organic direction.

Your three words will be your loose guidelines, and your permission to say yes to the opportunities that will bring you greater happiness, and no to the ones that will simply distract you from your journey. After choosing your words, you will have time to make an artistic and visual representation to help keep them within view throughout the year. 

Thursday, January 4 | 6 - 8 pm  | $15

If you prefer to pay cash or check at the event, please register by sending an email to terri@getoffgo.com to reserve your space.

Join Shawna at our Stampin' Up open house to learn all about the art of handmade cards. Join us on Wednesday December 27 to learn all about stamping, applying color, ways you can use watercolor in stamping and cardmaking, using alcohol inks, heat embossing, press embossing, die cutting - Shawna has many talents and so much knowledge!

The evening will feature demonstrations on various techniques, and provide each attendee the opportunity to make a handmade New Years (or Winter-themed greeting) card to take home.

There will be many examples of beautiful finished cards to see and feel, so you can get a really good idea of what all the different techniques are like - and then you will be able to try them out for yourself on your own creation!

The current Stampin' Up catalog will be available to browse, and if you want to purchase anything from Shawna, you can do so during the evening. **Purchase is not required to attend the event, or participate in the Make & Take.

A selection of light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.
