Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced practitioner, recovering from an injury or thinking you are too old or too inflexible, EBY has a class for you! EBY's yoga is a unique blend of various hatha disciplines. We like to think it is the best Northeast Wisconsin has to offer. EBY yoga combines the more physical, athletic practice of Ashtanga with the emphasis of proper alignment and the correct usage of props from the Iyengar practice. The breathing techniques from Viniyoga are utilized, as well as the linking together of postures from the Vinyasa "Power" Flow. The combination of these techniques and the individualized attention provided to each student makes Every Body's Yoga suitable and beneficial for all levels and every body.
EBY THRIVE A combination of Gentle Therapeutic Yoga and Somatic Movements for Cancer Patients & All Survivors! Now expanded to include anyone who is ready to get moving and get out of pain! You have survived and now it's time to THRIVE and regain life! [This 7-week program is FREE - but you must pre-register! Class sizes are kept small to ensure individual attention and safety. No previous yoga experience is necessary. This program is progressive (i.e. each class builds on the previous). Classes held on Tuesdays, 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM] See Updates page for details.
SOMA YOGA or Somatics, is a series of gentle, safe movements, which teach you to relax habitually contracted muscles that have simply "forgotten" how to relax. These are the muscles which, when held unconsciously, contribute to a host of painful conditions such as: chronic back pain, neck, shoulder, hip and joint pain, inflexibility, postural imbalances, headaches, knee and foot pain, and sciatica.
YOGA FOR FERTILITY & WOMEN'S HEALTH The health benefits of yoga for fertility include all the general benefits of traditional yoga for women plus more. What differentiates our class is which poses and practices we choose to do and not to do! In yoga for fertility, we choose to focus on the poses and practices that specifically help us prepare for ovulation, conception and pregnancy. Registration required. See Updates page for details.
GENTLE YOGA Gentle yoga is designed to allow almost anyone to participate in a very gentle form of yoga. The result is increased flexibility, strength, balance, and circulation. Gentle yoga encourages proper breathing and better posture. There are no Inversions or Vinyasa flow in this class! Take this class to relieve stiffness and pain, rejuvenate the muscles, and lubricate the joints.

RESTORATIVE YOGA Our regular yoga classes are full of energy and movement; to counter this we offer Restorative yoga classes. These classes slow way down as we begin to explore more healing and restful, restorative postures. We use lots of props and the positions are held for longer periods of time as we let gravity do the work. This class is held the third Sunday of each month.
YIN/YANG YOGA (Traditional Yin Yoga) Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the "yang" tissues. Yin yoga allows us to work the other half, the deeper "yin" tissues of our ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks, and even our bones. All of our tissues are important and need to be exercised so that we can achieve optimal health and vitality.
Yin yoga is not Restorative yoga. Yin yoga is simple, but simple does not mean easy. We can remain in the postures anywhere from one to five minutes! Yin yoga is a part of the original Hatha yoga tradition. In its modern incarnation, Yin yoga combines the influences of Indian yoga with Chinese Daoist practices and western science to improve our health on many levels with its emphasis on long-held, passive stresses of the deeper connective tissues. We will also be balancing the traditional Yin Yoga with some active Yang Yoga. The body and mind relax into stillness and are deeply nourished by the balance of yang & yin!
YOGA EBY's yoga classes are tailored to the needs and desires of our students. All classes are challenging and informative for all levels (which means we do not have to put limiting levels on them). Due to the high level of training and skills of our teachers, we are able to make adjustments during the classes, which keep all students, regardless of personal skill level, challenged. We use vinyasa flow in our regular yoga classes, incorporating several traditions of practice into a fluid, breath-linked asana sequence. It is the most common style of practice in the west...but at EBYoga, safe alignment and breath are still a priority.
FLOW (VINYASA) YOGA a step up from our regular Yoga class! Discover new limits and enjoy a challenge during this vigorous flow class. You will move, strengthen and open the body while building a beautiful connection with the breath. Be ready for more flow and more advanced variations in the Asanas. (Please have some experience under your belt)
ASHTANGA YOGA is a system of yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915-2009). Ashtanga means eight limbs or branches, of which asana (physical postures) is merely one of the eight branches. Pattabhi Jois put a strong emphasis on practicing Ashtanga Yoga - all eight Limbs!
This method of yoga involves synchronizing the breath, bandhas and drishti with a progressive series of postures - designed to heat up the body naturally, producing intense internal heat. The result is improved circulation, a light and strong body, and a calm mind!
There are six series in the Ashtanga tradition, but we will be practicing variations within the Primary and Second Series.
