Class Schedule:

Strength Building and Flexibility - Mondays Starting May 20th 6:30-7:30 pm

These stretches encourage muscle strength, motor control, and better circulation. It's not about becoming hyper mobile but being strong and flexible in equal balance. These movements help us increase mobility and deepen our body awareness, become more confident and courageous,

and develop perseverance and patience. This class is suitable for all levels, even those who've never even come close to doing a split.

Morning Yin Yoga - Tuesdays Starting May 21th at 10:30-11:30 am

This is a meditative, healing practice using passive, long-held poses while sitting or lying down. Yin yoga stretches more than just the large muscles. It allows you to strengthen and apply gentle stretch to connective tissues, fascia, joints, and ligaments in a low stress way that increases mobility and calms the central nervous system. Gentle poses are held while the rest of the body stays at ease. It is a wonderful way to unwind a tight or stressed body, mind, or spirit. It is also a great start to the day. Yin is suitable for all levels, including beginners.

 

Hula Hoop and Hoopdance - Tuesdays Starting May 21th at 6:30-7:30 pm

Even if you have never hula successfully hula hooped, this class will get you hooping! The class will cover on-body and off-body hooping, ways to incorporate dance, tosses, lifts, balances, and contact rolls as well as many other tricks and skills. It's also a very fun playdate and opportunity for creativity and dance that is also excellent exercise. Hoops are available for use in class and custom made hoops can be made to order for an additional cost of $35 for one or $60 for two.

 

Yin Yoga - Wednesdays Starting May 22th at 6:30-7:30 pm

This is a meditative, healing practice using passive, long-held poses while sitting or lying down. Yin yoga stretches more than just the large muscles.

Nikki Kornegay is a 300-Hour National Board-Certified Reflexologist and Second Degree Usui Reiki Practitioner who has recently relocated to Louisburg, NC, her husband’s hometown. In her nearly 14- year career in healthcare, she began to realize that our culture has difficulty addressing some of the root causes of people's illnesses – stressors, traumas, and lifestyles that are not conducive to good health and mental well-being – and she wanted to find a way to help people begin to heal themselves from a holistic perspective. She received her Level I & II Reiki attunements through Heartfelt Reiki with Kara Emmy in 2020; she was later introduced to the concepts of Reflexology and trained through The Academy of Reflective Wellness with Cyndi Hill in 2023. She then completed national certification through the American Reflexology Certification Board which sent her farther down the path of her journey where she meets you today. Let Nikki help you bridge the gap between traditional and holistic wellness so you can heal from the inside out.
