‘Beauty from the Inside Out’
by Jeanette Frost // from The Metropolitan

While there have been many studies pointing to all the wonders and health benefits of yoga (google it), I prefer giving my personal account, because it’s so meaningful to me. Yoga has brought peace and calm to my life, while greatly reducing stress and tension. Yoga has also eliminated my back pain, which once plagued me from complications through Scoliosis (a curved spine). I’ve also built incredible strength, flexibility and muscle tone, which I’ve never before experienced. READ MORE


Yoga brings together physical and mental disciplines to achieve peacefulness of body and mind, helping to manage stress and anxiety.  Yoga improves strength, balance, flexibility, mental control, improving body awareness and enhancing mental clarity.  The basis of yoga is deep breathing.  In fact, the breath is more important than the posture.  Deep nose breathing keeps you calm and focused, maintains mental balance, and allows you to work at a higher level of physical proficiency.  When people are calm, they are stronger.  They perform better.   Beyond that, it strengthens your immune system, helps you sleep better, improves your concentration, eases pain and releases toxins.

AWAKENING TO SPRING  – 90 minutes – room heated
When: Sunday, April 29th
Time: 1-2:30pm
Instructor: Natalie Fons
Interested in experiencing the ability to ground yourself in order to express fully through your innate body movement? Join Natalie as she guides you through a practice to uplift your energy and safely explore postures that may be new to your practice! This alignment based workshop will assist in strengthening your center while connecting your body and mind through conscious movement. Mat required and towel recommended.
Workshop is for all levels.


Recommended for all levels looking for a soothing, relaxing, and restorative experience, especially those newer to yoga. This is a gentle class that combines yoga postures, breathing, and meditation and is geared toward those who wish to move at a slower pace.  It is a calming, stress-relieving class to stretch and strengthen the body gradually. Room is moderately heated to 75+ degrees. Mat is required, towel recommended.
SLOW FLOW:firehair_background_square
Perfect for beginners, yet still challenging for all levels. Movement is slow and focused, increasing awareness and balance.  Deep stretching and longer holding postures will build strength, increase flexibility and range of motion.  Room is moderately heated to 80+ degrees.  Mat is required, towel recommended.

Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement,” – or simply “one breath, one movement,” smoothly blending the postures together into a continuous flow. For those new to yoga, this class is teacher guided, taking the fear out of not knowing where to go. For experienced yogi’s this is a true fast paced class with lots of heat and upbeat music!  The room is heated to 90+ degrees.  Mat is required, towel recommended.

This class consists of a shorter, yet challenging Vinyasa flow, focusing on movement and postures to develop core strength – which is the lower back, abdominal muscles, pelvic floor and hips – with a series of closing postures to further build a functional and healthy spine. The room is heated to 85+ degrees. Mat is required, towel recommended.

Have your own private heated oasis for one hour! We will set the temperature to your liking, you bring your music and connect to our system, and you can flow, meditate, lay in shavasana – wherever your practice leads you – for 60 glorious minutes.  It’s all yours.  We can provide you with one of our fantastic instructors to guide you if you like, just let us know.  Please inquire about pricing and availability.

This class is reserved for full team training – inquire about pricing and scheduling. “Strength without flexibility is instability.” Keeping in line with The Boxing Rink’s purpose, Deyoga Athletes is a slower flow, focusing on sport specific stretching and alignment, while still keeping the pace intense to challenge even the most conditioned athletes.  The body needs balance and recovery – and often times we simply don’t take the time to realign not only our bodies but our minds as well. Mat is required, towel recommended.

This class was developed specifically for those with Parkinson’s Disease, designed by our lead instructor, Deb Colling, to enhance the Rock Steady Boxing Program at The Boxing Rink. Research proves that regular stretching and certain postures can help visibly reduce tremors and improve steadiness of gait, increase motor function, mobility, balance, strength, improve mood, sleep and so much more.  More information about Rock Steady Boxing Troy at The Boxing Rink is available here: http://theboxingrink.com/rock-steady-boxing/

The children, families and staff are forever grateful. These contributions will be given to our families who have to choose between a coat, medicine and sometimes paying a bill. This simply warmed my heart. May God continue to bless you and your families beyond measure. Janice Hill”

The first workshop is this Sunday! Join us!! ...

Winter Workshops are here!! We are so excited to have Natalie Fons back, hosting 2 special workshops, coming up in December. See details below... $25/workshop or $40 for both December 3rd, Sunday 1-2:30pm HIPS & HEART In this workshop, we will be experiencing a series of poses along with breath and bandha engagement and of course strong alignment cues. Some benefits for hip opening are creating space in the hips and heart area especially beneficial while transitioning into the colder season. More benefits include improving range of motion as well as circulation in the body, helping to alleviate back pain, and energetically & physically creating space within the body. Other benefits for heart opening include increase in energy, stretching entire front of the body, opening abdomen, and throat, strengthening back muscles, and improving posture. These two areas complement one another in making for a transformational practice. December 10th, Sunday 1-2:30pm RESTORATIVE WITH PROPS This workshop will explore the many benefits of a restorative practice. While it is known as a recovery practice, it is also a tremendous "healing" and consciousness practice. This can allow time for us to cultivate the skill of conscious relaxation, help discover where we are holding tension in the body, creates the conditions for the relaxation response to kick in, and helps us face what we are avoiding within ourselves. One of the most present practices we can engage in while holding space for ourselves and others. We ask the student to please bring along one or two blankets/pillow to support the body during class. ***We have thick, cozy yoga blankets, organic and refreshing mat spray, as well as therapeutic aromatherapy eye pillows at Deyoga Room for purchase! These are perfect addition/compliment for these workshops!*** Purchase and register for workshops here: clients.mindbodyonline.com/asp/main_shop.asp
