As the sun starts to set faster and fold into cooler nights, we begin to see the trees, once working hard to acquire energy from the sun, release and let go of their leaves. The Baldwin City maple trees remind us of the beauty found in this transition with swirls of red, gold and green…a celebration of sorts!
Autumn is definitely a time for taking in and letting go and so too is our internal nature. May you take time to find appreciation of your hard efforts and passionate pursuits, enjoy the fruits of your labor, and relish the beauty embedded in change.
We have special workshops and experiences on the schedule. We invite you to stop in, connect with us and celebrate fall!

Tell me about your class/classes at OmGrown: OMGYC is currently supporting the Baldwin Recreation Commission with Chair Yoga on Tuesday’s at 11:30 at the Golf Course. We use the chair as the main prop along with other unique supports through our practice and gentle asanas.
Thursday’s at the OMGYC studio @11:30 AM: Ageless Yoga. Both classes are for ANYONE. We use gentle asanas and props to gain strength, joint mobility, balance and awareness back into the body. It’s a perfect class for those recovering from illness, surgery and those thinking “ I can’t do Yoga”.
Before Covid I started to combine art and yoga together with a friend, and we created the Yoga+Art series which we started at OMGYC. We used meditation and mindfulness along with art. Combining Yoga and Art allowed a new level of intuitive mindfulness and mediation. Both Yoga and art are spiritual in nature, allowing our eyes, mind and hearts to be open to creativity and the world around us.
