Jala offers handstand, wine workshops

By Staff | Sep 30, 2011


Jala Yoga, the yoga studio at Mellow Moods Cafe and Juice Bar, 117 W. German St., Shepherdstown, will offer two workshops in October. Both will expand students’ yoga practice in new ways.

On Friday, Oct. 7, 7:30 to 9 p.m., yoga instructor Soozie Kinstler will teach a Handstand Workshop. Kinstler will help participants move past their fears of standing on their hands and offer multiple ways to move into this fun and affirming posture. The cost is $16; $12 for students and class pass holders.

On Saturday, Oct. 8, 7 to 9:30 p.m., Jala once again offers the popular Vino and Vinyasa evening. Yoga instructor Gena Rockwell will guide participants through a fun and flowing yoga practice, preparing the senses to fully embrace the tastes of the wine and fall food pairings offered up by wine aficionado Greg Joyce and Jala owner and ‘foodie’ Christa Mastrangelo Joyce. The cost for Vino and Vinyasa is $40, and advanced registration is required. Contact Christa at 304-263-5367 or jalayo ga.christa@gmail.com to reserve your spot.

Jala Yoga offers classes seven days a week in the vinyasa style of yoga in which poses flow from one into another.

Jala Yoga believes that yoga is accessible and necessary for everyone, and both beginners and seasoned practitioners are welcome.
