Pop-Ups are a way to resist grind culture. You no longer nee to leave work early to fly to yoga class only to speed home to make dinner. Let's stop doing that.
Instead, if you find that you are craving /needing/wanting the serenity/work/release of a yoga class just drop us a text. We prefer 6-12 hours notice, but sometimes it works with less notice. Just texty 785-760-5412 as soon as you get the craving and we'll get you scheduled! When you do, I text the rest of the group and we've got 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 regular and pop-up classes are by donation.
Available for pop-ups. Keep checking back for updates.

Did you wake up feeling stiff and achy? You're not alone.
I am Melissa Mitchell, a certified yoga therapist with over 20 years experience teaching yoga classes, private session and offering workshops and retreats. I designed Gentle Mobility Yoga for you to create ease mind/body/spirit. You choose your intensity level and I offer variations and modifications so that no ma tier your fitness level, yoga experience level or mobility issues, you'll each feel comfortable in class and be able to practice.
We move within basic yoga poses to release tension and tightness while strengthening and stabilizing. Feel freedom in your joints and an increase in your range and ease of movement. We meet the last Sunday of the month at Sunrise Project. You will learn movements to take home with you and over time, you will feel less stiff, have general ease of movement and even be able to do things you couldn't do before, like squat, touch your toes or reach your hands behind your back.
I believe yoga should be accessible to all, so donations are always accepted, but never required. See you in the kitchen at Sunrise!
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.
Available as a Pop-Up or Private Group Class. 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.
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.
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.
Available as a Pop-Up or private session.
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.
Available as a Pop-Up or a private session.
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 you, drop me a text or email to request it. Slow 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.
