Cultivating a GRATEFUL HEART
Nov
4
to Nov 18

Cultivating a GRATEFUL HEART

Let us offer a continual sacrifice of praise to God. Hebrews 13:15

A lot of being truly grateful is the ability to let go of our own expectations. It’s allowing our self to accept our situation whether or not we planned for it or wanted it, by remembering who is in control. (Hint: it’s not us) A grateful heart requires a daily choice to let go of what is not, in order to be thankful for what is. It’s a sacrifice for sure, one that is as simple as it is challenging.

Join Polly at Fusion Yoga for a 3 week series that will allow you to look a little deeper into what the Bible says about being grateful and how we might practice what we learn both on our yoga mats, and with the people we love. An open heart is all that is required of any of us to cultivate a grateful heart… whether we are in downward dog, or navigating Thanksgiving with not so perfect families.

Date/Time
Sundays, November 4th - 18th

Restore Your Core w/ Gretchen Fruchey
Sep
10
to Oct 15

Restore Your Core w/ Gretchen Fruchey

LET’S TAP YOUR CORE. Join Gretchen Fruchey for a 6-week series that is designed to restore your connection to the core of you. This series is about deep work, releasing and strengthening long lost places in our bodies like the pelvic floor and the psoas; learning how to ground to the earth in order support a healthy, flexible spine; working from a place of stillness and strength before expressing a pose fully. But it’s about doing all of that for your soul, too. These thoughtful, challenging classes allow you to tap into that physical center—so that you can then tap into your spiritual center…and (kindly) kick ass!

The core relates to your sense of personal power and your ability to take action. It is science: by drawing into center and physically manifesting inner support and strength, you naturally create the same strength and support for the real you. The newfound power will be evident in your improved posture—and the confidence you gain from that stability around your spine will start to translate into all areas of your life.

Dates/Time:
Mondays, September 10th - October 15th
10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Cost:
$120/six week series

Gretchen's Reason Why:
"I want to share with you a little background about why I am fascinated with and teach about “the core.” Basically, kids. I was provoked to study and develop a method of healing and strengthening to rehabilitate myself out of necessity.

Believe me when I say I am not a person who does pregnancy or childbirth especially “well.” Facts are, I gained 50-70lbs each pregnancy, had large babies, and needed 4 c-sections. With each pregnancy, the diastis-recti returned even larger. With each surgery, I lost more feeling and nerve sensation in my low belly. And with each child came the opportunity to give give give from my center. It’s what mommas do, right!? (But what I had
to see was that habit started long before I became a mother! Being a mother was just the slap in the face I needed to make changes.)

Creating and practicing core yoga methods was essential to reconnecting with and strengthening not just the abdominal muscles I no longer could even FEEL, but also with my inner strength, wisdom, and determination. If your core is weak or contracted, you cannot do traditional ab crunches. Especially after my 4th cesarean, during which the adhesions from the previous surgeries were so bad my Doctor had to yank and pull for hours to detach my skin from the muscles (I literally thought I died during surgery, it was quite traumatic), even my organs were displaced. I was in pain physically and emotionally
and there never seemed to be any support for this!

I noticed that I had also never considered, nor grieved, the “pushing out” my body was meant to do. Which means, I had never released the downward moving energy that had naturally built during pregnancy. No wonder I felt emotionally, creatively, and energetically constipated! No wonder I felt exhausted and drained! No wonder I felt the need to create control in so many (unnecessary) areas of my life. I never got to truly LET GO. And I was left with a big, floppy, dull, unresponsive marsh in the middle of my body, which I shamed. That wasn’t okay with me.

So I got trained in core strength vinyasa flow and went down a now decade-long wormhole of information and education about the psoas and the lizard brain, the chakras, somatics. I learned how important releasing is, how vital fluid movement of the spine is for strength. I discovered the core actually starts in our feet and travels all the way up to the crown of the head! It’s not just about what was around that c-section scar. The combination of both strong and soft,/fluid movements gave me so much freedom. Let me tell you--it feels GOOD to feel your body, to delight in sensation and all the (nonlinear) ways a body can be strong and receptive! The pelvic floor work and chanting allowed me to break the dam of pent up Apana (downward moving energy) and release so much emotion and attachment…including the fact that I was STILL attached to the idea that I didn’t have the right birth experience or the right body! Buh-bye!

And just like stronger muscles, my will, determination, independence, and strength started to return. I began to feel sure of myself again, I floundered less. I stopped looking outside myself for the answers and started to trust my body—even when it felt different or softer or weaker. I let my breath penetrate my entire belly—that is an amazing feeling! I stopped sucking it in, stopped wearing spanx. It’s a relationship of love and respect now rather than control. I know I my center line will hold my spine tall, allow me to hover in plank, propel my legs to move, digest food and emotion, support my organs, cradle my babes. I know it’s my source for the energies behind strength and vulnerability, inspiration and motivation. Whether or not it’s hanging over my jeans, we’re connected, this Core and I.

I share this because if you can relate, I’d love for you to have this information, to give yourself the gift of reconnecting to the core of you. Tools are helpful! You don’t have to have had pregnancies or children to know you’re disconnected from this area—many of us with childhood or sexual trauma, control issues, ptsd, digestive/intestinal issues, surgery, weight issues, etc. will feel exactly the same way. This work is beneficial for everyone, we can all do the deep work. I invite any questions, stories, or comments you have about the Core of you!"

  • Lunar Infusions (hands-down the best Kombucha you've ever tasted… all done in small batches)
  • Yellow Cup Roasters (Fort Wayne's newest and, in our opinion, tastiest small-batch coffee roaster)

Because we want to support our fellow small business owners, if you make a purchase of $50 or more at Fritz Studio, Lunar Infusions, or Yellow Cup Roasters, or $100 or more at Cuzen Clothing, you can receive 15% off of one class packages or 10% off of one membership at Fusion Yoga!

Surrender to the Pulse of BEing

Even in this season of listing, rushing, buying, finishing, we can find a sense of steadiness. The thread of constancy lives within each of us and reminds us how we are all connected. Join Gretchen Fruchey in a workshop at Fusion Yoga to Surrender to the Pulse of BEing.

Surrender to the Pulse of BEing
Can you feel it? The pulse of everything?! It beats underneath, within, above, around... it's the steady rhythm of BE-ing; It's what gives us grounding, awakening, communion, and ALIVENESS. In this class you will use the energy, voice, movement, and each other to connect to the Earth, the Self, and the Infinite in order to playfully experience and surrender to the comforting constancy of the Pulse and our true nature of BE-ing.

Date: Sunday, November 12th
Time: 10 am - 12 pm
Cost: $45/Non-Members - $38/Members

Free Kombucha Tasting

Free Kombucha Tasting

On Saturday October 21st, Sarah Trombley will be joining us at Fusion for a tasting of her home-made kombucha. Sarah is the owner of Lunar Infusions Kombucha, where she gets to share her passion and love for brewing kombucha with the world. Bottles of her home-made elixir will be for sale: $15/32 oz (with $5 rebate on bottle), $9/16 oz (with $4 rebate on bottle). No need to enroll, just show up!

What is Kombucha?
Kombucha is a probiotic-rich, fermented tea that is thought to originate from China in 221 BC, during the Tsin Dynasty. This “Tea of Immortality” is made by sweetening tea with sugar and adding the kombucha culture, called SCOBY (Symbiotic Colony Of Bacteria and Yeast). This culture, which contains the bacteria and yeast responsible for the alchemy of the ancient elixir, produces a range of healthy organic acids, vitamins, amino acids, enzymes and probiotics as it digests the sugar.

Kombucha has many health benefits if consumed daily, which include: supporting your immune system, fighting infection and illness, improving energy levels and mental health, and helping with allergies, arthritis and even cancer.

Sarah uses green tea and honey to brew her kombucha, rather than the “normal” way of using black tea and sugar. Most kombucha is brewed with just fruit, while Sarah uses anything from turmeric to lavender to mushrooms -- any safe medicinal herbs that add harmony, nutrition, and flavor. Lunar Infusion’s tea is infused under the soft light of the moon and is charged with Reiki energy to ensure that it is the highest vibration kombucha available. The kombucha at Lunar Infusions is brewed with love, in small batches, and with very much care and attention.
