Biomechanics of Yoga with Foam Rolling


New AM Class!  Go check it out.

Our 7:15am Hatha 1&2 class on Tuesdays and Thursdays
has been reimagined and transformed!

Arrie is now teaching Biomechanics of Yoga with Foam Rolling!


Beginning as a typical yoga class with centering, sun salutations, and other postures this class is intended to get your body and mind awake. It will differ from others with a focus on myofascial release and joint mobility, primarily through the use of foam rollers.

Great for anyone interested in increasing their joint mobility from the aging to athletes. What are you waiting for?

See you on Tuesday and Thursday at 7:15am!

Saturday Special with Sherri

It’s an extra special Saturday tomorrow because Sherri is teaching! Although she teaches many amazing classes throughout the week, Sherri rarely has the weekend free to teach at MGYS. You may not know this about her but in addition to being a certified yoga instructor she’s a bad#$! violist in the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra. Her schedule outside of the studio is pretty full BUT this weekend is the one exception in November and luckily she wants to share it with you — so please, do yourself a favor and 🙂
When I think of our team of teachers and their conduct both at MGYS and within our Nacogdoches community I am inspired to be a better person. We truly have an eclectic team of teachers at MGYS! Educated, experienced, caring, charismatic, intuitive, perceptive, receptive, and always willing and ready to teach from a place of compassion. Ready to teach YOU, our dedicated students of yoga – of life.
As Kasey said at the closing of one of the last classes I attended before leaving for India, “We are all in this together.”  This has become one of my daily mantras.   
Let’s practice, y’all.  The lessons observed from the mat are accessible in our day to day lives.  These lessons lend to our transformation and betterment as human beings.  
Join Sherri and other MGYS Yogis on Saturday, won’t you? It’s THE place to be on Saturday am in Nacogdoches. <3
