Happiness is not a circumstance, it is a cultivation. When you practice Tai-Chi, you get to know a part of you that was hidden and you have been looking for all of your life: the power and potential that your mind and body are really capable of. Classes are held Monday through Friday, 7am to 8:30am. See if it is a right fit for you--enjoy your first week of class for free. Contact Pastor Neuhaus at email@example.com or 734-845-9786 for more information.

Yoga, unlike other yoga class you've taken before. This class uses straps (similar to TRX) to stretch muscles that can be difficult to stretch in other exercises. The straps are used to help balance and stretch deeper (and safely) into yoga postures. Usually you will feel the stretches in your tighter/weakest muscles first. Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. Come join us Monday nights at 5:45pm. The studio will be heated between 85-95 degrees, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
We are located on Huron Street across from the YMCA. Look for blue door #22 with a red buddha on it. You are allowed to park in the lot in front of the studio. We share a parking lot with several businesses including the Yellow Barn.

Aerial Silks, also known as Tissu or Ribbons, is a fabric apparatus hung from above that is climbed, wrapped around the body, and/or tied to create dramatic drops, pose, and movements in the air.
If you have never "flown" on the aerial silks before, this is the class for you! It is designed for absolute beginners and will introduce you to the flexibility, leverage, and balance used while on the apparatus, as well as how to engage the muscles needed to stay safe in the air. This class will repeat the same curriculum each week, focusing on basic climb, foot lock, and hollow body position, so you can join at any time. Once you've mastered the basics, you'll be ready to move on to the next class level. Please register via the Aviary's website, class size is limited. Use promo code firstflight for $5 off your first class! =)
