Welcome to A Yogi Kitchen's Delicious Yoga community!
Our mission is to create community and help you to connect mind/body/spirit while showing up with your whole self.
We believe that yoga should be accessible to all, so all of our regular and Pop-Up classes are donation-based.
A donation should be whatever works in your budget. Some students pay once a month, once a pay-period or each time they take a class. We're pretty flexible around here.
We are a social enterprise committed to community care and love. Our profits go to feed and clote people.

This session we are doing two regular Zoom classes and two regular in-person classes. The rest are u-call-its. So, whenever you are craving a class, whenever you notice a break in your schedule, shoot me a text, 785-760-5412. I text the group and we have a class. Want to get on the list? Text me right now, include your name and tell me you want to be on the pop-up list. It's that simple! All classes are by donation.
We are sinking into the word Rest this session. This first part of the session I invite you to say the word to yourself, a LOT.
I always encourage this, but this session I'm asking you to do MORE. Say it to yourself at a red light, whenever you run to the bathroom, whenever you remember to hydrate. Say it out loud, whisper it, sing it, shout it. Say it in your head. Write it over in over in your journal.
How does Rest feel to you? Do you cringe when you think about rest? Do you sigh and sink down? Listen to your truth and then ask yourself, how is that serving you?
If it's not servicing you, do I have a session for you! If Rest feels delicious to you, you're going to love this session so much!
I am exploring the work of Tricia Hersey, @thenapminestry on IG and New York Times Best Selling Author of Rest is Resistance. We will be talking about her book a lot this session, so check out your library or consider ordering it to deepen this work around rest. We have a lot of ideas about rest and i'm ready to jump into it!

My favorite way to practice ANYTHING is in a group. I developed this Community Yoga, first and foremost, to create community and increase your sense of connection. Connection is good for you, and me, mind/body/spirit.
The two Community Yoga classes are all-level and I highly suggest them for beginning yogis. There's always beginning poses for if you're new to yoga, but also for you to reconnect with the basics. I always offer lots of variations and alternatives, so if you want to make this class more gentle you can, or more challenging you can. It's your practice, you get to choose how you want to feel.
An invigorating all-level practice that invites you to gently move from pose to pose, pausing to focus on your breath. Slow Flow helps you connect to the present moment. It strengthens, tones and defines you as well as invites you to sink deeply into longer stretches.
Each practice is a bit different, depending on our focus for the session. This Fall our intention is to connect with Joy, so expect a lot of heart-opening and deep stretches. Last session we focused on the word Strong and we'll continue some of that work se ex[ect to see some leg, arm and core transformation in September and October.
Years ago my teacher said to me, "Melissa, no one needs to be taught to push themselves. They need to learn to slow down." -Suzanne Chapek.
I've held that close to my heart and developed this class for you. Restorative Yoga teaches you to be still and present in the moment. It's the most delicious.
Perfect for beginners for its ease and accessibility, sometimes slowing down and getting quiet is also the advanced work.
Mr. BKS Iyengar brought restorative yoga to US teachers and I was lucky enough to study with Judith Lasater, one of his students. She was one of the first yogis to introduce restorative yoga to mainstream classes. She drove home the idea that Restorative Yoga is not for the sick or weak, it's an important part of every yogi's yoga life.
Join us for peace, healing, relaxation and comfort. Yoga props, like blankets and bolsters are helpful, but you can use household items, like beach towels, bed pillows, couch cushions and blankets to feel grounded and heal.
An easy, breezy class for absolutely any level practitioner. You'll spend most of the class on your back. For a short while you'll do sitting poses and be on your hands and knees before returning to your back.
You'll work the tension of the week out of every muscle in your body and lubricate your joints. You'll feel mentally energized, inspired and motivated to end the week well,.
Increase circulation, detoxify and settle your mind. Love this idea? Text 785-76-5412 to request when it works for you! If you can't make Saturday morning, you can have it ANYTIME you want it. Just ask.
Wake Up Yoga helps increases circulation with breath work which helps your brain wake up and be steady and focused for your day. Physically you'll warm up, stretch and release any tightness and tension from sleeping in unhelpful positions.
Are you just needing a little push for your day? This is the perfect class to help you learn more about yoga as well as set you up for success, whenever you request it.
You'll leave this class feeling energized and relaxed at the same time. Does that sound antithetical? Join us and see how those two things can be true at the same time.
This was a regular class that has moved into the requestable classes category. I love teaching it, so if it resonates with youSlow down and be gentle with yourself. While this is a simple, slow class that everyone can do, it's also a challenge for so many.
Yin Yoga asks you to slow down, mind/body/spirit and summon the more gentle, feminine energy as you sink down and hold poses longer. You may have practiced a pose like Standing Forward Fold before, but in Yin Yoga, you'll shift your focus and just hang there, allowing gravity to help you lengthen and get grounded. Overall it's a more passive practice that leaves even seasoned practitioners feeling longer, leaner and sometimes even a little sore.
Do you love stretching? Are you a runner? Are you a cardio or lifting junkie? This could be the class that challenges you to level-up. Learning how to be a bit passive with yourself is a powerful way to shift mentally, emotionally and physically.
In yoga we believe that true health is a balance between endurance, strength and flexibility. This class helps you find that balance with the deep stretches that so many fitness lovers ignore.
