AYS summer challenge

This summer we are challenging you to up your yoga game! 

Are you ready to try something you’ve never done before?  We invite all regular and new students to pick their ideal class attendance level and join the AYS summer challenge.  You can choose 26, 52 or 70 classes.  The goal of the challenge is for each of you to experiment with increasing the frequency and consistency in which you practice yoga.  The benefits of a committed yoga practice are significant and follow a dose/response pattern.  Simply stated, the more you do it the more you get from it.  This is not about losing weight or making yourself “better”, rather it is about stepping up the self-care game.  What better way to do this than participating in a studio with committed teachers supporting a like-minded community of people.  What do you think?  Do some yoga, make some friends, get a cool T-Shirt.  Who could ask for more!


STARTS:  Saturday, June 3rd at 10:30-11:30am w/ the Summer Challenge Kick-off & Ashtanga Yoga Advanced Series Demonstration
ENDS:  Thursday, August 31
COST:  $20 enrollment fee (does not include yoga).  At the end of the challenge you will receive our AYS Summer Challenge t-shirt!
PASSES:  All regular classes on our schedule are eligible.  Use your auto-pay membership, class cards, or Summer Challenge Unlimited Pass.  

Summer Challenge Unlimited Pass:  $225 (an incredible discount of only $75/mo).  Pass valid June 1 - Aug 31 for unlimited classes.  Expires Aug 31, 2017 w/ no extensions.  This pass is for students participating in the challenge that are not on auto-pay memberships.

how this works

  1. Choose to complete 26, 52 or 70 classes this summer.  In other words, commit to coming 2, 4 or 5+ times per week.  If you start the challenge on June 3, the challenge is 13 weeks (90 days) and this is how our 3 levels of ideal attendance are calculated.  If you start after June 3 we can formulate your attendance level based on how many classes you wish to attend per week from your start date. 
  2. Come to the Summer Challenge Kick-off event on Saturday, June 3rd at 10:30am for an Ashtanga yoga demonstration and get event info.  You will receive a Challenge Card where you will keep track of your attendances every time you come to class.  If you can't make the kick-off we will give you your card the first time you come to class after June 3rd.  The regularly scheduled 9:00 - 10:15am Saturday Ashtanga class is an all-levels class and is the first class eligible for counting towards your goal, so everyone please come!
  3. Sign up NOW by paying the Summer Challenge $20 enrollment fee online w/ button below or at the studio.
  4. We will celebrate the end of the Summer Challenge with a pot luck party on Friday, September 1st with drawing prizes and t-shirt give away for those who participated and those who met the challenge.   

restorative yoga workshop

with Karen Vielle

Sunday, June 18th @ 4-6pm

Fee:  $30 (regular rate) or $20 (AYS auto-pay member rate)


Summer time can fill up fast with travel, yard work, and outdoor activity. There's a lot of busyness in trying to cram it all in. Don't forget to take time to take care of yourself during this season as well! This workshop will focus on allowing the body and mind to find a place of calm, quiet stillness. We will start with easy movements to loosen up the body and begin to hone your ability to draw your awareness inward. These will be followed by long gentle yoga postures which are completely supported. In each posture you will be reminded to let the body soften and relax, and the mind will be guided toward clarity and calm. This is a great opportunity to honor yourself or to treat your Dad to some peace and relaxation for Father's Day

sunday Community talks

Join Shelley Enlow and the AYS community to discuss relevant aspects of Hatha yoga philosophy that directly relate to our lives on and off the mat.  This time is intended to be informal and to provide a forum for you to bring up any questions you may have about your practice.  The topic focus will be different each month.  

Upcoming Community Talk Dates
