Intro to Yoga & Essential Oils – Aug 26

Intro to Yoga & Essential Oils

with Suzanne Mikula

Sunday, August 26 

1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Join us for a fun and experiential fusion of yoga and essential oils, nature’s pure aromas. 

We will begin with an introduction to what essential oils are, as well as cover some of their uses and applications. We’ll then experiment with incorporating them into a light yoga practice using them throughout to discover how they can help to deepen our yoga practice, aid in our connection to our breath, while listening to our inner healer. We will conclude the session with Yoga Nidra, a meditation and reflection on our individual and collective experiences. Linger afterwards with us to enjoy a Superfood Juice Shot (at no extra cost).

We strengthen the entire body with emphasis on the core, pelvic floor, and posture while integrating our babies into the practice. This class goes beyond the physical aspect of yoga as we use each pose as an opportunity to connect more deeply with our babies through eye contact, breath, touch, and mindfulness.

Learn to quiet the mind and find serenity as you get fit and gain confidence in your mothering through this integrative yoga practice. In each class we also take a moment to share our journeys with other new moms in the spirit of support and community.  ALL BABIES FROM 6 WEEKS OLD to NEWLY CRAWLING are welcome!   DADS, CAREGIVERS, AND FRIENDS ARE ALSO WELCOME.





NEW TO FUSION..? Info to get started

Welcome to Fusion Yoga!


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.

If you’re new to yoga, here’s some tips for class…

yoga matIf 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, 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’re new to Fusion…

We’re located at 1620 Executive Court, Sacramento, CA 95864.  Executive Court is located just off of Arden Way between Fulton and Morse Avenues (closer to Morse).  

Our class schedule can be viewed on-line at (then click “class schedule”). Lots of information is available on our site, including upcoming events, rates, and more.

  • If you’re healthy and relatively active, you might try any class that includes the word “ALL” in the description of our on-line schedule ( – or if looking at our printed schedule, look for “M″ which indicates mixed-level).
  • 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.
  • If you like a challenge, try our FUSION FLOW… SLOW FLOW…. or YOGA BASICS with CORE STRENGTHENING.

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.

no cell phone

In order to maintain a peaceful environment for all….  Please note that NO CELL PHONES ARE ALLOWED IN THE STUDIO OR LOBBY (including texting or smart phone usage). If you bring your cell phone with you, please turn the phone completely OFF – that is, no vibrating or alarms… or better yet, leave it in your car 🙂 If you need to use your phone, please be respectful and step outside the building. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation in helping us to keep our space sacred.
