Yoga @ The Brewery    9:30a Every Saturday in Spring 

Apr. 13, Apr 20, Apr. 27, May 4, May 11, May 18, May 25

We are excited to offer this for our 3rd year in a row while the weather is enjoyable in West Texas!

Sockdolagers and Abilene Yoga House are collaborating to bring yoga to the community! This year we have decided to make it about music, movement and motion. Each Saturday AYH will take over the space at Sockdolager’s and invade their spotify with a teachers choice music themed yoga class. We are thinking Led Zeppelin, Queen, Prince, Beatles, 80’s, 90’s, Alternative from the 80’s, Fleetwood Mac, Hip Hop etc. A sort of Musication! So with that in mind, a sense of letting go, having fun with movement and motion is the intention.

There are some advantages to practicing yoga where craft beer is brewed. From the smell of hops to the feeling of community, breweries offer a casual atmosphere that brings together students who might otherwise never practice yoga.

Beer and yoga have a few things in common, but the most commonality is that both lead to a casual social environment.  Sockdolagers and its owners have done a fantastic job bringing the sweetness and the uniqueness of our little community together.

Some need to know things:

Bring a yoga mat (we will have some props if needed)

You must be able to get up and down from the floor

This class can be for beginners but we will be moving, stretching and relaxing, so bring a sense of inquiry and fun.

Please arrive early. We try to conduct a sense of opening and closing. We are weaving a message from the get go and would love for you to be fully present to enjoy this experience

Please sign up on the mindbody app as we won’t have cash or the necessities to take payment

SUP Yoga is a Yoga class on a Stand Up Paddleboard. Being outside on the water is an amazing way to practice yoga and meditation.
No yoga or paddleboard experience is required. We love beginners and advanced students alike!
If you have your own board you are welcome to use it and pay a fee for the yoga class or rent equipment from us that is included in your ticket. We have limited boards so be sure to register ahead of time, these fill up quickly.

What do I wear?
Shorts, tennis skirts, swimsuit, yoga pants, anything that you can move easily in and be mindful of anything that might reveal a little too much… we are doing yoga poses .
Apply some sunscreen, bring a towel and some water. If you want to wear sunglasses, make sure you aren’t too attached… they have been known to go to the bottom of the lake.

Who can do this?
Anyone that can swim and wants to have fun

Why yoga on a Paddle Board?
Why not? No really…. It gets hot in Texas and we are limited on water in West Texas so we thought lets bring yoga and SUP together! This is our 4th summer doing this and the reception has been amazing. We will do modifications, play a little bit and build some equanimity in our bodies while awakening our core.

We are so grateful to SUP Abilene and their staff for allowing this fun practice to come to fruition.

If you have any questions please call

 WE Yoga w/Camie   TBD

I’ve noticed more and more how disengaged we have become especially in this digital world… while I embrace the digital age, I also see a deeper need to reconnect, not only to ourselves but with other humans.Our agitation detector is extremely sensitive and reactionary and I have been doing a lot of self study about reconnection and re-engaging. This self study has prompted me to introduce a different kind of partner yoga, One that nurtures and supports one another through healthy touch and communication. I think so many times we depend solely on ourselves for support but how important it is to be able to ask for our needs and support in others. In this class, we will explore a way to re-engage not only with ourselves but with a support network. “In partner yoga, communication is key in order to cultivate a sense of safety and trust, as well as hold space for laughter and play.”

Bring a friend, a spouse, a supportive partner. This is about building trust, communication, asking for help and a sense of safety, nurturing and well being. This will be a class for anyone that has the ability to get up and down easily. Brave the task of vulnerability and see what happens:)

All genders and couplings can benefit.
