Zoom On! Yoga Classes
Balance your yang energy (doing/effort) with your yin energy (receiving/effortless) to feel confident, light, and energized.
These classes are designed to help you release any stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that your vital energy – prana – can move freely through your whole entire body. When your vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and a sense of overall well-being.
Each class incorporates pranayama techniques, such as alternate nostril breathing and soft belly breathing, to calm your mind and soothe your nervous system.
Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Zoom On Yoga Classes
Saturday, 12/5 Upper Core Strength and Flexibility
This class is designed to relieve upper back and neck pain by relaxing tight muscles. We tone the upper body with yoga asanas that develop strength and flexibility. We utilize our bones and muscles to create joint space so our movement is strong, graceful, fluid, and light.
“The body is composed of bone and muscle. The bones that make up the skeletal frame of the body are attached to each other by joints which are held together by strong ligaments and muscles. A muscle contracts or relaxes to move bones connected to it. Better muscle function means a fitter, stronger body.” Yoga, The Path to Holistic Health, B.K.S. Iyengar
Asanas: Warm-up with a sun salutation and Transformational Work. Asanas include standing poses with actions in the arms, standing and seated twists, forward folds, heart and shoulder openers, and simple inversions.
Sunday, 12/6 Boost Your Respiratory and Immune Health
Respiratory health is your body’s first line of defense to protect you from viruses and pathogens. You have approximately 300 lymph nodes in your head and neck region, whose primary job is to kill off incoming pathogens like the coronavirus and influenza, before they can move deeper into the body. This yoga practice is designed to help boost your body’s natural immune response and immunity, enhance your upper respiratory tracts ability to fight off viruses and disease, enhance your lungs capacity to open up and breathe deeply, and recharge our internal battery (energy) bank.
Asanas: Heart openers, side bends, supported forward folds, simple supported inversions, and restoratives.

I had the distinct pleasure of studying yoga and taking classes with Roger and Kari in Madison for around four years. I learned volumes! As another student put it, their method of teaching is like the “philosopher’s stone” applied to yoga. Classes were both insightful and delightful on account of Kari’s whimsical sense of humor. The vibe was intense and focused yet without taking anything too seriously. We had fun while devoting ourselves to precise alignment. I highly recommend their Iyengar-style technique and Kari‘s personal teaching style!"
I met Kari on my travels in Pai, (Thailand). I was so lucky to have the chance to practice with her on my morning sessions. Kari showed me with a few words and gentle adjustments the way to open my heart. But more valuable to integrate & strengthen that open heart. Kari is an authentic,natural born teacher who shares her experience from deep down in her beautiful heart! Everlasting gratitude."
Kari Tomashik is a true and kind teacher of Eischens Yoga. She has taken Roger Eischen’s groundbreaking work much further. Kari is both a very clear communicator who can help the uninitiated and experienced practitioner to learn about their body/mind/spirit, and an experimenter who keeps her ego out of the way of her focus on the learner.
I have known Kari for a number of years. She is unequaled in her dedication to using yoga as a vehicle to understand her place in the world and make an impact in the lives of those she encounters. She has a deep knowledge of the workings of the human body – derived from her personal practice and her many years of teaching. She approaches each individual as a unique person and treats all with respect. Besides that, she has a great sense of humor and an assured yet gentle manner."
