Springtime Yoga with Marianne

FULL-waitlist only

If you have been feeling like me, this winter was all about going inward and letting my soul hibernate, like a sleeping bear. I’m glad I did, but this sleeping bear is now ready to spring back to life! (Plus, this sleeping bear probably put on a few pounds, and got a little soft around the edges.) I’m looking forward to connecting with my people, basking in the sunshine, and breathing in all the scents of the season! Join me in awakening the body, stirring the senses, and illuminating the mind with this springtime flow series!

Thursdays in April and May from 6:30 pm-7:30 pm

Level: All levels are welcome! Go at your own pace!

Location: 25015 Township Rd 254, Calgary Ab, T3R 1A2. We will be practicing in the studio and if the weather permits, on the outside deck.

Cost: 9 classes for $200 now $140 for a spring pass which includes both months! If you prefer to drop in, inquire first if there is space for $28/class, (but must inquire before showing up). Spots are limited.



Yoga for hesitant beginners!

Let me know if this sounds like you…

You are far from having an athletic body and are not in the best shape of your life. You are at least in your 40s or older. You are intrigued about yoga (and the lifestyle), but you have been intimidated to join a class (or stay registered in a class) because you just didn’t feel like you fit in. Although you get the concept that yoga is for everybody, you can’t seem to get past the thought that you will make a fool of yourself, or worse, fall flat on your face. You are always tired these days, so you wonder why you should even bother trying, because if you decided to cancel one of the classes last minute, the instructor would think you are lazy, and then you would just give up out of embarrassment.

Sound familiar? Then this class is for you! You heard me sister!! This is YOUR class!

Only registrants who match the profile described above will be accepted in this class. I will do my darnedest best to make you feel as welcome and as safe as I possibly can!

We will be starting with the very very very basics, on all fronts. Sound perfect? Then you must join!

Here’s the thing…If you can, I want you to recruit a friend who also fits the same profile. Why? Because women need each other! We keep each other motivated and interested! That is half the battle. You get a sweet discount if you register as friends! No willing friend? No problem. You can register alone.

Schedule: Tuesday evenings in June from 6:30-7:30 pm

Cost: $70 for 4 sessions if you register alone. Half price at $35 if you register with a friend, for both you and your friend! Registered series only. No drop-ins.

Location: Onsite studio-The Little Red Barn of Joy, 25013 Township Road 254, Calgary, T3R 1A2.

Special Events 

Mantra Board

An evening of creativity with the Calgary artist Cristine Wells

A mantra is placing positive thoughts and messages in your mind and repeating them. It is like a balm to soothe an anxious mind. What about capturing what is meaningful to you, encasing it in glass, and placing it somewhere you can frequently glance at it?

 Like a mantra, placing positive meaningful thoughts and images in your mind whenever you see it - reflecting on a memory of a happy time, such as a journey that you have been on, or capturing something that you want more of in your life - your personal symbols of peace, prosperity, and happiness.  You can create a special message for someone you love - a message written in meaningful tokens just for them.

Glass art pieces created by you can be functional - you can create coasters or a cheese tray or you can hang them up and capture messages to yourself.

 Dates: June 7th, 2024

 Times: 6:30 pm until 9 pm

 Location: our very own Little Red Barn of Joy onsite studio (25013 Township Rd 254, Calgary AB T3R 1A2)

 Cost: $80

Marianne is coming!!! Are you? Spots are limited so register now!


GLOW Worthy

A day retreat

You deserve to glow! Glowing comes from taking time to regenerate. But not in any old way. It requires you to indulge yourself in real self-care and awe-inspiring activities! Join Marianne and Kerrie Breit in a one-day escape from the doldrums of everyday life, before the craziness of back-to-school starts!  

Activities will include all things soulful and magical! You will get to lose yourself in meditation, engage in a relaxing yoga practice, warm your heart with some horse connection, and more!

Coffee and tea will be provided. Bring your own snacks and lunch. 

Schedule: Saturday August 24th, 2024 from 10 am-4:00 pm

Location: Marianne's property in Bearspaw, NW Calgary

Cost: $119

Renting Space

Want to host your own workshop or class?

I love to see people shine and thrive doing something that fills their soul with purpose and meaning! Sometimes our jobs pay the bills, but we have fewer opportunities to engage in our passions! If you have an idea, come and host! It's only $35/hr to rent out the studio space I call The Little Red Barn of Joy or the outdoor yoga deck! You get to keep all the profit! (This does not include my entire property or direct access to the horses). It's your workshop! It does not have to be a yoga workshop; it can be anything at all!

Offered only upon availability.
