Water Dog February News

February Schedule

Indoor SUP Yoga Workshops

Have you been anxious to try SUP Yoga and fitness, but afraid to fall in the water? Are you wanting to build balance and core strength to take your practice to the next level? Challenge yourself and build your confidence for with our indoor SUP workshops this winter!

We have brought a limited number of our SUP Fitness boards to Mesquite Street Studio for indoor SUP yoga/fitness workshops this winter. We use balance/stability cushions under the boards to simulate the feeling of being on the water on an unstable surface, while removing the fear of actually falling in the water! Right now these classes will be held Saturday mornings at 10:15am and Sundays mornings at 8:30am.

Special Dates and Events

2019 Year of the Pig

February 5th, 2019 is the Chinese New Year. We will celebrate during our regular Tuesday evening Yin Yoga. Water Dog will provide a special treat for all participants from Moonlight Macrons to celebrate the Year of the Pig! Pig is the twelfth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac sign. It is not thought to be a smart animal in China. It likes sleeping and eating and becomes fat. Thus it usually features laziness and clumsiness. On the positive side, it behaves itself, has no plan to harm others, and can bring affluence to people. Consequently, it has been regarded as wealth.

VinOYin Yoga

Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday this year. Water Dog will hold a special Beginner’s Series class that evening: VinOYin Yoga! We will provide a glass of complimentary wine for all participants. The first part of class is VINAYASA style, incorporating movement with breathe, increasing internal heat, cultivating balance, flexibility, strength and endurance. In the second part of class, we will slow down with more meditative YIN yoga. Poses will be held longer getting into the connective tissue of the body and improving flexibility, this is where we also mindfully sip wine. This FUN combination allows for the best of both worlds of yoga!
