In September, yoga studios worldwide are uniting to increase awareness and understanding surrounding substance abuse and offer hope to individuals who are suffering.
Join us in changing the dialogue surrounding drug and alcohol addiction – from one of isolation to one of community and growth. Every dollar raised goes directly toward teaching Ashtanga yoga classes in treatment centers and providing yoga tuition scholarships for individuals in recovery.
MGY and AYN are hosting two donation classes at the end of September to raise awareness.
Register today and reserve your spot. In Person space is limited due to social distancing requirements. Classes will be offered via Zoom too. You have the option to choose on our schedule. Signing up is free, donations accepted at the studio day of or if Zooming a donation can be made online or directly to the Trini Foundation.
Do you love yoga?
Do you love beer?
Do you love supporting local businesses?
If you answered yes, we have great news – your perfect Friday night has arrived!
The Fredonia Brewery has graciously provided a space for MGY to practice outdoors. To express our gratitude, we’ve come up with a fun and creative way to practice together while supporting our generous downtown neighbor.
Join MGY at The Fredonia Brewery for Sunset Yoga in the beer garden on Friday evenings at 6:30pm. When you register for the class, you’ll choose a 64 oz growler of delicious, locally brewed beer or refill options for both 32 oz and 64 oz to take home after savasana for a post-yoga treat. New selections include wine barrel and bourbon barrel aged options too!! Don’t forget to bring your growler back the following week for a refill. Cheers!
Don’t forget to bring your growler this Friday if you’ve selected “refill” option.
Not into beer? You can, of course, always select to come simply for the Sunset Yoga. You’ll select Sunset Yoga only (No Growler.)
To practice in person, you will need to bring:
*Mask required to be worn on premises with the option to remove once on your mat.*
*Hand towel for random sneezes and sweat.*
A Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy class is intended to take participants deeper into their own felt-experience. There is no need for agility, flexibility, or poise.
On the surface a PRYT class may look similar to a “regular” yoga class, but it has a different scope of practice. Individuals are assessed before class and classes are modified based on the needs of the individuals. The Phoenix Rising method of yoga therapy classes progresses students through six phases which facilitates an embodies direct experience.
In a PRYT class you can expect:
1. Moving and breathing to activate muscles and integrate the nervous system
2. Edge exploration to develop concentration and focus
3. Dropping in to practice acceptance and compassion
4. Meditation period to clear the mind of expectations
5. Listening for insight. A open period to allow insight
6. Integration: a time to consider how each practice will inform your life moving forward.
These classes are part of the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy: Teacher Training Practicum that Arrie is studying. This is fulfilling part of the requirements of a yoga therapist as set out by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
We hope you’re doing well and feeling supported. Thank you for being dedicated to your yoga practice, which we hope has been a source of connection and care during this unique time. While the conditions for practicing together continue to challenge all of us, the fruits of the practice itself have been nourishing. Would you agree?
In light of the growing number of COVID-19 cases and Governor Abbott’s recent executive order relating to the use of face coverings during the COVID-19 disaster in public spaces, MGY has made the decision to suspend in-person classes and continue our online offerings at this time. We feel temporarily closing is the most responsible course of action to support the wellbeing of both our yoga community and the greater communities in which we are nestled. We don’t take this decision lightly and will continue to monitor available information about best practices moving forward.
Our well established, quality, online classes have proven to be a supportive and nurturing addition to studio offerings. We are also working on expanding our digital offerings to include on-demand videos for download, as we know internet service can be unreliable for many.
We hope you’ll join us online and are here to answer any questions and troubleshoot for a successful livestream experience. Thanks to all who have already joined and continue to support MGY.
Currently our classes are available free of charge as we know this is financially a tough time for many. We are accepting donations to cover the cost of operations, so please consider making a donation or enrolling in a membership so that we can continue to offer this service and be prepared to return to in-person classes.
Thank you, as always, for your understanding.
We hope to see you soon!

It will include a short hatha yoga practice to embody the summer, a brief meditation on the archetypes of summer, and some guidance for setting a personal intention for the upcoming season.
