with Lisa Rogers
In this semi-playful class, we’ll use a foam roller to reduce chronic muscle tension and pain, release myofascial restrictions, and gain greater flexibility and strength. Foam Rolling is an accessible, effective, and simple way to give your body a massage, warm up your muscles, and prepare your body for movement.
You’ll leave the class feeling refreshed, restored, and ready for yoga next yoga practice!
Benefits of Using a Foam Roller:
- Helps to relieve muscle tension (which can help improve sleep for many!)
- Improves mobility and flexibility
- Reduces the risk of injury
- Improves blood flow
- Relieves stress
- Aids in full body symmetry
- Creates more space, energy, and freedom in your body
- A fun tool to add to an existing yoga practice
Foam rolling techniques are performed on the floor using the arms to support part of the body’s weight, as needed. It’s perfect for those who have chronic tension or pain in their lower back and hips, those with tight hamstrings, calves, and IT Bands, as well as those who have “knots” in their neck and shoulders.
While advanced reservations aren’t required, they are appreciated for this class. (It’s also okay to just show up Rollers are provided for your use.
* A foam roller is a cylindrical piece of dense foam that is often used in physical therapy to release tight muscles and improve circulation.

SATURDAYS @ 11:00 am – 12:15 pm
with Anna Neczypor
Our Gentle Yoga class is for anyone that wants a “lighter” practice or a gentle approach to practicing yoga and is a great entry point for students who have never practiced yoga before.
In this modified class, yoga postures are adapted to the individual to help improve strength, flexibility, range of motion, balance, and coordination, and sessions vary according to the needs of the participants. The pace of the class is slow which gives students sufficient time to comfortably transition between postures, and most poses are done in a seated position or while lying down. (Standing postures and standing for long periods of time is limited). Breathing exercises, guided relaxation, and meditation instruction are often incorporated into the practice, giving you tools to use in your everyday life. Chairs and other props are available for your use.
This class is especially beneficial for those who are recovering from an injury or surgery, who are managing an illness, as well as those that are concerned that age, fitness level, or weight might make being part of a class uncomfortable or seemingly impossible.
Ease pain and foster healing, while learning to accept your body as it is.

Experience CranioSaral Therapy with Terrye Witte, OTR/L
CranioSacral therapy (CST) uses a gentle, light-touch approach that can release tensions deep in the body. The CranioSacral system includes the soft tissues and cerebral spinal fluid which flows from your brain to your sacrum. The function of the CranioSacral system is to cushion and protect your brain and spinal chord.
The CranioSacral rhythm can be detected throughout the whole body (similar to the ability to feel ones heart rate in areas other than the heart). Evaluation reveals the areas that have restrictions (from tight connective tissue called “fascia”) minimizing this important fluid, which affects your Nervous, Endocrine, and Immune systems, as well as your muscles.
The philosophy of the CranioSacral therapy technique is based on our bodies ability to self-correct or self-heal. (CST practitioners often refer to this as the Inner Physician) We have all experienced an example of this when we get a cut or scrape. Our body will respond by closing the skin. Immune and inflammatory responses are also self -healing examples.
Different from typical massage, treatment is performed while clothed lying face up on the massage table. Assessment informs the therapist where to start on each body. Hands are placed on the identified area, gently sinking down into the fascial restriction. The restriction is then followed along the line of tension. This is a gentle technique. It requires you to feel safe and nurtured. Fascia works as a protective mechanism in the body and resists releasing if one is feeling guarded.
Terrye is an Occupational Therapist who has been studying CranioSacral therapy for 10 years. She is passionate about this modality and loves to share this lesser known alternative therapy with others. Sessions are provided at Fusion Yoga Studio. For more information or to schedule a sessions, please call (916) 471-8055 or email email@example.com.
You can also research this modality through the website www.upledger.com . This website takes you to the institute. There is a frequently asked question section under the discover CranioSacral Therapy (CST) link.

Here’s some helpful information for
new students to get started with us …
The first time you come in, please try to arrive 15-20 minutes early for your initial paperwork, get a tour of our space, and meet your instructor.
To speed-up the check-in process, it’s helpful to have completed a Registration & Release Form in advance (print it out and bring it with you — or you can complete a form at the studio if you forget).
We have a special promotional offer for new local students: “2 WEEKS FOR $25″ – enjoy unlimited classes (for a 14 day period) for a one-time charge of only $25! You can sign-up (purchase) the promotional offer on our website by clicking here. (Create a user name/password – top right corner of screen. Then select the tab “Buy Pass/Gift Certificate.” When asked “What kind of pass would you like to buy?” pick “Yoga Classes” and then scroll down for the option of “2 weeks for $25″… and complete the transaction.) You can also purchase the introductory pass at our front desk when you come for class. If you’d prefer to pay for just one class, the cost for a single class (a “drop=in”) is $16.

If you’re new to yoga, here’s some tips for class…
If you have a yoga mat, bring it along. If you don’t own a mat, you can borrow one of ours. (You might want to consider buying your own mat – not only is it a commitment to your practice and will allow you to use it at home, but also for hygienic reasons. Mats can be purchased at places like Target or Amazon.com, etc. )
Wear something that allows you to bend and move easily. Most exercise clothing will work… shorts, sweat pants, form-fitting tees, tank tops, as well as clothing specifically marketed as “yoga” clothing. (Target or Lucy has a good selection.) We practice with bare feet… so make sure they’re clean and fresh . Avoid wearing anything with fragrance.
Try not to eat a heavy meal 1-2 hours before class as having a full stomach can make you somewhat uncomfortable. A light snack – such as fruit, yogurt, or nuts is usually okay.
A hand towel and a bottle of water are nice to have, but optional. (Washcloths are typically available for your use.) Bottled water is available for sale in the lobby for $1.00. (We also have a water cooler for refilling your water bottle for $1.00. No charge for a drink.)
If you’d like to know more about yoga, you’ll find some helpful information in our 12-page “A Brief Introduction to the Practice of Yoga” handout.

- If you’ve got an injury or you want a mellow class, try one of our therapeutic classes such as — SOMATIC YOGA… RESTORATIVE YIN… YOGA AT THE WALL… SENIOR/BOOMER YOGA,…or YOGA FOR HEALTHY AGING.

Be sure to stop at the front desk to sign-in. (Signing-in is mandatory for each and every class you attend).
Try to arrive ahead of time as classes start on time. Providing the front door is unlocked, we allow late arrivals. (If there is no front desk attendant, we typically lock the door 10-15 minutes after class starts. If there is an attendant, then the front door is left open.) If you’re late, wait until the opening meditation is over with before joining the class. (Wait to see that students are transitioning into a posture. If they’re holding still, wait until there’s obvious movement or an invitation from the instructor or assistant to join the class). On the other hand, if you need to leave before class is over, be sure to let the instructor know BEFORE class starts and position yourself near the back of the room, if possible. (Try to leave quietly and before our final relaxation/savasana.)
Let the instructor know ahead of time if you’re new to yoga…. and/or if you have an injury or illness that you’re working with. If you prefer to *not* be touched, inform the instructor BEFORE class starts.
Please speak quietly in the studios as well as in the lobby as oftentimes there are classes or healing sessions in progress.
We have two changing rooms for your convenience and ample parking.
