About Us

Yoga for Everyone

Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health and well being. Regular practice will help you reach, improve and perfect poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing and outlook on life.

Enhance Your Wellness

Mindfulness series are offered throughout the year to assist you with the  skills necessary to live the life you desire. From gentle movement to guided meditation, participants will learn new techniques to help them live in the present with awareness.

Calm Your Mind

Yoga not only helps improve your body, but also helps with mindfulness and meditation. It is important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body.

Covid-19 Update

After much internal deliberation I have decided to cancel all yoga classes for the immediate future. As Covid-19 makes it way through our state, I think it best to respect the experts who report social distancing as a major factor in keeping ourselves, our loved ones, and our most vulnerable populations safe. 

I like to think that I could create and offer online classes for you to practice in the comfort of your own home, but I'm not ready to make that promise to you. If I can make it happen my devoted students will be the first to know. 

In the meantime, I encourage you to continue your practice any way that you can. It is so important to take care of yourself - both inside and out. I will post several links to online yoga practices, great reads, and other resources for you to consider. 

Please stay in touch - what a blessing social media will be in the next few weekS!

Who doesn't love a red barn? This one on Darling Hill has always been a favorite of mine and there's nothing like fresh snowfall to bring attention to its beauty.

TRAPEZE YOGA

As it is the season of COVID-19 I am joining the ranks of teachers who are offering virtual or distance yoga classes. Using the ZOOM app I will have a trial run on Thursday, march 26 at 5:00 pm EST. 

If all goes well, then I will try to continue these online classes one or two times per week. 

It's simple really.  All you need is a computer and internet service.

If you are interested you can sign up on this website by clicking the class on the calendar. This trial class is FREE. Furture classes will be listed on the calendar and you can sign up the same way. If you sign up earlier than one hour before the class starts I will send you a link to the class. If you still want to join you can go to my face book page, Sweetwater Studios and log in using the link there. 

I think you will enjoy doing yoga from the privacy of your own home!

What we have to offer

Gentle Yoga

The Energizer

The Energizer

 Gentle Yoga is for beginners or experienced practioners interested in a practice that builds strength, flexibility and balance. Themed classes offer gentle movement and mindful practices that allow you to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Join us in the unique setting among the hills of the beautiful Northeast Kingdom. 

Gentle Yoga classes are offered every Tuesday & Thursday from 5:00 - 6:15 pm.

The Energizer

The Energizer

The Energizer

  The Energizer is a vinyasa flow class designed to awaken the spirit and infuse the body with energy for a hearty day of trail riding or skiing, or simply to prepare you for the day. Using pranayama to guide the asanas of this intermediate class, students will move through a variety of postures and no two classes are ever alike. Recognizing the temporary nature of things, Vinyasa yoga brings our awareness to the seamless way life unfolds. 

Contact Sweetwater Studios to schedule this class.

Trapeze Yoga

The Energizer

Restorative Yoga

Trapeze Yoga offers a unique way of building upper body and core strength. In addition, the trapeze allows for certain poses to be passive, so you can assume deeper backbends and stretching in a way that lets you hold poses safely and for longer periods of time. Inversion therapy is known to have significant benefits including instant traction on the spine, relief of back pain, increased range of motion and more. Take a swing on the trapeze!

Contact Sweetwater Studios to book this class.
