Summer Outdoor Yoga Series
in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement within our Hamilton community, where all proceeds go to The SPACE, youth-led Resource Centre of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton.
“The SPACE is the only youth-led drop-in centre in the downtown Hamilton core for youth between the ages of 13-24. The SPACE, which stands for Sharing Power And Centering Experience, is a community hub that is created for and by a diverse group of young people who are invested in building inclusion, youth leadership, and change in our community.”
Over the years, Circle Studios has worked in partnership with the Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club of Hamilton offering programs that engage children and youth in yoga, art-making and mindfulness activities to give them tools to support well-being and inspire their creativity!
We strongly believe in the importance of nurturing the physical, mental and creative well-being of youth and the power of supportive, inclusive community. We are so excited to be running this series with 100% donations going to this incredible resource centre and we hope that you will help us to make this a big success!
All levels are welcome.
Advanced Asana Workshop
With Dustin Vieler
This will be an advanced asana workshop rooted in the 84 asana series (Ghosh Yoga). We will be looking at deeper backward bending, binds, arm balances, inversions and deeper floor postures such as the lotus asanas.
Students do not need to come with an advanced practice to participate. But have the interest of taking their practice deeper and the willingness to change their minds and take on new concepts.

Kids Aerial Yoga Classes for Ages 6-12
These classes run WEEKLY

Sunday FOR AGES 6-12 from 4:30-5:30pm
We’re offering these classes now EVERY Saturday and Sunday, so plan to get on your mat! Kids yoga classes are offered at the same time as the adult H Yoga Classes! Child drop-off starts 15 minutes before and continues 15 minutes after class to give you time to get yourself ready. This allows you to do yoga while your children do yoga at the same time in their own separate class.
You must register for this class in advance online. No drop-ins.
48 hours notice is required for cancellations due to the limited amount of space in each class.
Only 7 hammocks + space for 7 kids.
A fun fusion of yoga postures done in circus silks, called yoga hammocks. The beautiful silks hang low to the ground in a hammock style so there is easy access to the floor. The fabric acts as a safe prop to assist the body in opening and relaxing while your weight is completely supported by the fabric in a zero-gravity situation. The fabric can be opened wide to lie inside or bunched together to sit, stand or support in stretching. Classes vary from active to more relaxed. There are numerous zero-gravity benefits including decompression, improved circulation, skeletal and nervous system health as well as joint mobility. Plus kids LOVE playing in the silks!
