Are You Free For Lunch on Monday?
We hear it all the time: "I know that yoga would help me calm and de-stress...I wish I could come to a class, but I'm so busy, I never have the time." We try to create a dynamic schedule with classes of all types at all times of the day and into the evening. Some days, we have Rise-and-Shine classes that begin as early as 6:00 am. Many nights, we host evening classes that begin as late as 7:30pm.
On Monday, January 20th, we hope the short-on-time folks hanging around town during the lunchtime hour will join us for a new offering: the Lunch Express! This 45-minute All-Levels class begins at 12:00. 'If you work in or around Wakefield, that means you can find your center, grab a smoothie across the street at Smoothie Booty, and slip back into your desk chair as the clock strikes 1:00. Turn Monday on its head with this new routine, and enjoy a fun and enlivening presence of All That Matters' Kripalu instructor, Emma Nahod.
Emma was first drawn to the yoga mat in 2009, looking for a physical practice. After parting ways with a lifelong study of dance, she was looking for a new and more compassionate way to move her body. Yoga turned out to not just be a form of exercise, but an empowering way of life. She felt such a profound transformation; she knew she had to share the gift of yoga with others. Emma completed the 200-hour teacher training at the Kripalu Center in 2010 and has been teaching (and learning!) full time ever since.
In the tradition of Kripalu yoga, self-compassion is the foundation for all of Emma’s classes. Regarding this as yoga’s greatest gift to her, she leads classes that allow the student to lovingly meet themselves where they are. With creative sequencing and a playful style, she guides an experience to reconnect body, breath, mind, and heart. Emma is passionate about integrating the tools of yoga into everyday life. She hopes to inspire and guide people in their own yoga, on and off the mat.
