• Circular Fashion

    What the heck is Circular Fashion?

    And what do clothing swaps have to do with it? To understand circular fashion, you must first understand the term “fast fashion”.

    New Year’s Day at BPY

    The studio is hosting 3 special classes to kick New Year’s Day of 2022 First up on January 1st is Holly’s 9 am Vinyasa RED class.

A drishti translates to perception in Sanskrit, and in the practice of yoga we use this term to indicate our gaze point, such as the nose, the brow point or navel. Along with the breath, we focus on these particular points to develop our ability to concentrate. Holly will be expanding upon the concept of a gaze point off the mat asking each student to decide…

    What if we spent our days in isolation from one another finding a way to connect more? We’ve heard a lot of reasons why people avoid a meditation practice. One of them being the lack of time. Well, one of the bright sides of this quarantine for a lot of us is – a whole heck of a lot of time we never have been able to tap into before. And if you are finding yourself saying you are even busier than before, right now is probably a very good time for you to find a way to take a timeout and get out of fight or flight mode. Listen,…
