Thanksgiving Day

Most classes are canceled. Enjoy this day with your friends and family! Maybe enjoy a little “prancercizing” in the woods after your feast?

Yoga with Gratitude: a donation based class with Jennie Berger

Before the day and our minds get too busy, let’s spend a little time cultivating gratitude and appreciation for all that we have. Bring yourself, your friends, your family—any and all are welcome.

The Gentle Barn rescues, rehabilitates and gives sanctuary to severely neglected and abused animals. Then they connect their stories of healing and survival with the personal experiences of at-risk and special needs children who have suffered physical, mental or emotional trauma. These animals have had negative experiences in life, but their willingness to trust humans again allows them to live out their lives in the comfort and care of a loving environment. It’s precisely the animals’ willingness to trust humans again that helps children who have undergone abuse understand that healing is possible. The Gentle Barn TN is located in Farragut and open to the public every Saturday from 11am-1pm. You can meet all the animals, give pigs belly rubs, hug cows, cuddle turkeys and feed carrots to the horses. 

This is a donation based class. All proceeds will go towards The Gentle Barn Tennessee. Connect with Jennie to reserve your spot! Text/Call 865-258-2779 or email Missjennieberger@gmail.com.

Introduction to Tai Chi

Chen style Tai Chi is considered by most historians to be the original system of Tai Chi. Along with the smoothly flowing movements for which Tai Chi is famous, it also trains explosive release of power. The twisting & coiling training induces deep internal massage & develops tremendous leg, core, & tendon strength.

Yoga on Wheels

Yoga wheels boast an impressive variety of new ways of accessing strength, flexibility and deep release.

Whether you are a die hard yogi, new to the practice of yoga or just want a fun workout prop, this workshop will help you to discover new ways of using your body more efficiently.

Leverage from the wheel makes postures more attainable – especially arm balances and back bends – and allows you to feel muscle groups in ways that help you grow no matter what your favorite way to exercise is.

Expect to gain all around knowledge on how to use this great tool and increase your understanding of the anatomy and physiology of yoga postures.

No wheel? No worries! 12 Wheels are available for use or you can bring your own.

Jen is an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher – E-RYT 200 and a qualified Continuing Education Provider with Yoga Alliance – YACEP.

$40 per student, class size is limited. We have 12 wheels but we have room for more — let patty or Jen know if you want to attend with your own wheel!

Ashtanga Morning

Jennie has been laughing at herself (practicing yoga) for more than 20 years. Her goal is to share this great gift with as many people as possible! Her training is rooted in Ashtanga…aaaaannnnnd yet Jennie adores stirring her own blend of colors into every class.  She sees each practice as a blank canvas with the opportunity to paint any picture you want. Jennie has a deep passion for animals, health and nutrition, and she’s super stoked to bring Ashtanga Morning Yoga to Breezeway Sundays at 8:30am.

Ashtanga Yoga is the dynamic harmony between breath and movement, flowing through a progressive series of postures that warm the body internally and ultimately detoxify the muscles, connective tissues and organs. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind.  This class will focus on various asanas from the classic Primary Series in their correct and safest order alongside pleasant meditative music.  Looking to be more grounded and balanced?  Looking to achieve both strength and flexibility?  Looking to practice in a safe open-minded environment?
Then Ashtanga Morning is for you. Come challenge yourself, have fun, and laugh with Jennie!

Private sessions available in your home or choice of location. Jennie also teaches private yoga instruction at our sister studio —Balanced You Studios on Bearden Hill. She offers a variety of styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Gentle and Chair.

Jesse Williams, RYT200

Jesse teaches a breath centric yoga class that focuses on re-balancing the body. He uses dynamic (moving) yoga poses to help the body regain symmetry.

As Jesse went through his yoga training he became passionate about how breath and movement work together to bring harmony and healing to the body. He continues to study the Viniyoga teachings handed down from Krishnamacharya through his son Desikachar and to Gary Kraftsow and other teachers. Jesse is happy to work in class and individually to allow students to fully experience the transformational aspects of yoga.
