We have many things up our sleeve for this summer - keep your eyes peeled!
This is one we are very excited about..
Young Adult Yoga Week - ages 16-25 attend classes for FREE !
We want to open our studio to this demographic because all of us who practice wish we would have had yoga in our lives at this age. This age group goes through some of the toughest transitions in life, are trying to find themselves and make a mark in this world. Between moving for school, finding a career, navigating serious relationships, etc.. wellness and mental health can sometimes take a backseat - especially when the tools to feel better are absent.
Carly says: "I found yoga in my 4th year of university and it saved my life. Goodbye body image issues, goodbye anti-anxiety meds, hello more self love, peace and happiness."
If you know anyone in this age group - please tag them below, share this with them or bring them along to a class the first week of June.
Our classes are suitable and adaptable for everyone and anyone - some will relax you, some energize you, some will straight up kick your butt into shape. Come experience it all for FREE!
Happening this Thursday! Join us for a fun and inspiring evening in the studio...all women are welcome and encouraged to attend!
Feel free to bring any pieces of art/writing/music to share - either that you’ve created or from someone else who has inspired you. Creative expression knows no bounds!
Look forward to creating some wonderful connections and moments with you all there! ✨🌝 💖

Today is Adi Shankaracharya Jayanti, celebrating the birth of this incredible 8th century yogi, philosopher, and theologian who single handedly revived the advaita vedanta doctrine, advocating that the true self within us (atman) is the same as the supreme reality (brahman).
He led an exemplary life, establishing 4 main monasteries in North, South, East and West India. He did this (and so much more) up to age 32, when he knew his dharma was complete and told his students it was time to go showing complete detachment from the fruits of his actions.
I've had the opportunity to visit Adi Shankaracharya's birth place in kerala twice now, and it is one of the most peaceful places I have ever experienced.
I'm launching a FREE Yogic Living Video Series for all of our LSY page followers.
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT?
Here are some topics we will discuss:
-anatomy & asana
-self love & acceptance
-overcoming limited thinking
...and so much more
Some will be short clips, some will be interactive live sessions where you can ask questions and some will be instructional videos to practice along with.
Now you dont have to be in Dryden or always at the studio to be a part of our LSY community. I hope these resources will help support, inspire and encourage you to live your yoga!
Please share with anyone who would be interested!
STRONG BODY=SECURE MIND
On mental health awareness week let's recognize we are not just the body, nor just the mind, nor just the spirit...our human experience is all about the interaction of all three.
When we physically feel strong, grounded, balanced and capable, our mind & spirit has a secure place to embody.
5pm hatha tonight we will explore strength, stability and security in body, mind and spirit.
New to the studio? Amazing we are here to support you in anyway! Just show up and we will walk you take excellent care of you!

We’ve given you 4 weeks of videos and posts about practice and affirmation....now let’s start to put it all together.
We’ve included some options below- so set your phone for 15 minutes and choose 1 from each of the following sections or design your own practice.
Movement: goal - to wake the body up, get the joints moving and blood flowing.
1- Gentle joint mobilization
2- Energetic activity (jumping jacks, mindful walking)
3- Sun salutations
Breath: goal - to tap into and connect to that breath....settle the breath- settle the mind
1- 3 part breath
2- Deep belly breaths (seated position)
3- Belly breath with prop on your belly (laying down)

It's mental health awareness month so I am sharing my experiences in how yoga is an incredible tool to help deal with so many mental-emotional issues. We all need to work on our mental health, just as much as anything else.
Yoga holistically works on all levels- body-mind-spirit. I wrote this a few years ago and have so many more points I could add. If you want to know mkre about yoga for mental health or need help please reach out! 🙏❤
carlybrownyoga.com In a world where anxiety is becoming a global epidemic, the practice of traditional Yoga can offer numerous benefits in reducing and eliminating the effects.
Our next Full Moon Circle will be in a couple weeks !
This topic will surely be fun and allow us to all open up beautifully.
I am excited to share my experience with creative expression and some creative works inspired by my spiritual path.
Please join us - no previous experience required ❤🌕🌠
Creating and Using Affirmation
Purpose: Our thoughts create our reality, it’s as simple as that. We have an immense power to uplift and elevate our minds through the power of affirmation. Affirmation helps to instill positive belief systems in two ways: One it plants a new positive belief that is opposite to a current negative belief, and secondly it acts as a defense against our negative thoughts that pop up. In this case, you would use your affirmation anytime you feel yourself thinking a negative thought. This is called Pratipaksha Bhavana in Yoga Philosophy or “raising an opposite thought”.
Explanation: To create an affirmation, you must decide what your affirmation is going to be used for. It is helpful to write down the random, negative thoughts that are going on in your mind. Once you write these thoughts down, notice what “theme” they fall under. This might take some reflection but try to break them down to the core issue. Remember the issue needs to be related back to you for example if your thoughts surround Jealousy of another person it comes back to feelings of inadequacy, “I don’t have what they have , I’m not enough”. Therefor your core issue is Self-value. Most will relate to issues with: Self-Worth/Value/Love, Trust, Fear and Insecurity. Once you determine your core issue, you will find an affirmation that counters this limiting belief. Try and make the sentence simple and short. Example: “I love and Value Myself”.
Duration: 5-10 min As a meditative practice (repeating the affirmation along with the breath) or always, anytime. The more its repeated the more it will help to change the limited belief system
Considerations: It’s important to choose an affirmation that counters your belief, not one that sounds nice to your ears. Often our limited mind is so strong it avoids choosing the proper affirmation because it doesn’t want to believe in it. Try your best to use short and to the point affirmations so that you can easily remember it, recite it and use it as a tool anytime your negative belief arises. If your mind has resistance to it, that means it is most likely working. Consistency with ONE affirmation is imp. until you see progress!
Include Yoga in your self-care routine! and remember that you are so loved.

“Doing nothing” has become the most important part of my day. It’s my time to come back to my true self, tap into my infinite potential, recharge my energy and serves as a reminder that no matter what situation or circumstance I face in the outside world, is not match for my inner state of peace. It’s given me so much empowerment, and I hope through these teachings we all find our way to peace within."

Mindful Monday Challenge:
Ground yourself and just be...outside.
Today we share a video about the importance of getting kids outside as a means to help to ground them in today’s world. Its important for children and adults alike. If you are off today with your children, we challenge you to get them (and yourself) outside- breathe in the air, feel the sun and enjoy the sights.
The freedom, peace and acceptance we feel when we are immersed in nature is something that is so nourishing and grounding and often helpful to balance out the expectations, dysregulation and competition we feel in our lives on a day to day basis.
We sure hope the weather is beautiful in your part of the world and if you made it outside today or this weekend- post your pic below. 😄All posts will be entered in to win a free entry in to our June online workshop.😀
