Meet Valerie Longfellow
Valerie walked into Happy Buddha in January 2014 for a beginner yoga series and never left. In the past, yoga was all about the shapes, many of which seemed unattainable. “Practice, and all is coming,” she kept hearing at Happy Buddha. So she did. And it is. In 2016 she completed her 200 hour teacher training under the guidance of Charleen Predmore and Kelly Kamm. An eternal beginner, she knows how daunting it can be to walk into a studio, imagining that everyone is better than you . . . . . at yoga . . . at life . . . As a nurse, Valerie is conscious of the importance of a practice that is challenging while being safe. Breath and body are the soul’s companions in this life and she encourages her students to treat them with reverence and love. Her interests include mental health advocacy, maternal child health and eliminating the stigma felt by survivors of suicide. Come as you are, but be prepared to be transformed. That is the yoga.
Valerie teaches Blissful Buddha, a rejuvenating restorative offering.
Join her Friday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

Soulful Sundown Sunday is back!
Sundays at 6:00-7:15 p.m.
Join Sarah St. Lawrence for this all-levels class, a perfect way to end the weekend, and begin the week. Be ready to relax, and restore. Slow down a bit.
Deepen Self-Awareness and Introspection . . . The subdued quality of a restorative yoga class often helps you draw attention inward and away from external events and situations of the world. With your awareness directed within, the practice becomes a sanctuary for the mind and spirit from which you can take a deeper look at who you are, what you want, and how you can serve the world.
Breathe and Balance
Thursdays at 3:30-4:30 p.m.
Join Regina Reilly-Madigan as she focuses on the mindfulness of breath as well as the practice of turning inward. Each of her sequences will be focused on a specific chakra or part of the body. Her class will be a creative mix of asana, pranayama, yin and restorative poses with props, which will enable her students to relax and focus inward.
This class is suitable for all levels. Class= $10
Mindful Buddha: Meditation and Movement
Wednesdays at 4:15-5:00 p.m.
Join Katy Melendez for a unique combination of meditation, philosophy, breathing techniques, gentle yoga and restorative poses. Katy’s creative use of mantras, mudras, and imagery will help you connect to your higher self and release any anxiety, sadness, fear or tensions. Your body and mind will feel rested and ready. This is a donation only class.
Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m.
Give yourself time to recoup and replenish midweek.
This class is suitable for most everyone. Expect movement focused on creating space in mind and body with a soothing restorative end that will leave you feeling refreshed. Buddha Replenish is taught by the amazing Janet Lee.
