Welcome to Simply Yoga!

Simply Yoga in Lemont provides Vinyasa Flow classes for beginners and lifelong yogis. We offer many different level classes to choose from, including Beginner Basics, Basics, All Level, Power Hour, Restorative, and Sculpt.

please click here!)

 

Classes are generally 60 minutes and are conducted in an 80-85 degree environment. It’s not hot yoga, but it’s warm enough to help you get your blood flowing, increase flexibility and detox your mind and body.

 

Thank you all for helping us build a strong yoga community servicing Lemont and its vicinity.

What do I need to bring?

  • If you have a yoga mat please bring it with you. If you don’t have one you may borrow one of ours free of charge. We suggest you bring your own towel to cover the mat, as you will sweat.
  • Bring water with you and drink it as frequently as you need.
  • The studio is generally heated to about 85 degrees, so wear something comfortable that you can stretch and sweat in

What should I expect?

  • If it’s your first time in the studio, please try to arrive 5—10 minutes early to get checked in and settled.
  • If you have any injuries or are pregnant, please let the instructor know so modifications to poses can be offered.
  • Try not to eat a big meal at least 2 hours before a class. A light snack beforehand may help you get through your practice.
  • Try to eat a snack or meal rich in protein within 1 hour after class.
  • Every day is different on your mat. Always remember and honor that and honor yourself always.
  • Whether it’s your first class or your 100th, know that we are all students together, even the instructor. It’s called yoga “practice” for a reason!
  • Let your ego and expectations go.  Enjoy a fun, friendly and engaging class taught by certified yoga trainers. There are no mirrors in the studio so look within, let go, and breathe!

Simply Yoga Expansion: Coming Soon!

The expansion to allow us more space, especially for these winter months where the classes get a bit crowded, was delayed more than I anticipated, but I'm hopeful it will get done this month.  Can't stress about things I can't control, right? Please be patient and make room for your fellow yogis in the more popular class times.  We are all building this awesome community together and I couldn't be more honored :)

 

SPECIAL Through February 14th:

Through February 14th you can purchase a 20 pack of classes for $199!! (20 packs expire in 4 months). 

 

New Class Coming in January!

Starting on the 11th, at 8:00pm you can join Amy for "Peak Pose Pot Luck"

Class description:  (Level 3) If you are ready for a challenge, then this high intensity class is for you. After an advanced warm up flow which builds each pose off of the other, you'll be able to play with arm balances, inversions and unique transitions resulting in strength and confidence in your practice. Some classes will work towards a peak pose, while others may explore longer holds.

 

Upcoming Workshops:

Potions to Advance Your Practice

February 28th 12:00-2:00pm, mark you calender for a special event! Carmen Aguilar from The Yoga Lab in Chicago will be holding a workshop at Simply Yoga!

 

"In this challenging and smartly sequenced class we'll warm up the upper body, limber up the spine and loosen the hips to explore a number of arm balances. We'll be linking them with some inversions, to find an organic and interesting flow as we stop and deconstruct some of those asanas a bit more thoroughly. This workshop is a perfect opportunity to take your practice a step further, grab pointers, challenge your mind and have fun in a safe and laid back environment."

 

You won't want to miss it! The cost of this workshop will be $40.
