Welcome to Fassler Garden and Yoga! There is no better place than the Garden to Practice the Art of Letting Go. Through the practice of therapeutic horticulture we create space, both within and around ourselves for healing and growth. Join us on our journey through the seasons and let’s grow, together.
Join me in the studio for yoga, workshops, and book clubs! We’re taking yoga beyond the mat every Sunday after class. Stay for an hour, enjoy some refreshments, and let’s talk. The first book up for discussion is Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth.
On March 16th, I will host a Women’s Networking and Social Gathering at 12pm.
Join us for Klesha’s Workshop on March 24th at 11am for 2 hours. It’s only $25, and refreshments will be served.
Hi there! I’m Marla and this is my husband Steve! We have been gardening together for over 15 years, 10 of them here at FG&Y. I absolutely LOVE yoga in the garden! Yoga means to yoke, or connect and there’s no better place to connect with the physical and spiritual world around you than in the garden.
You may have seen my Veggie Cart at the end of the driveway, it’s been a wonderful way to connect with the community. I’m so excited to share that this year I will be the Coordinator of Creston Community Garden!
What We Do
At FG&Y, we not only offer workshops on how to garden we also offer opportunities to cultivate wellness while you garden. Through mindful movement and being present in the moment one can find healing and growth while growing vegetables, herbs and flowers. So in addition to practical workshops and sunrise yoga on the deck, we will guide you in creating your own sanctuary through our Therapeutic Garden Space Design/Coaching Service. A garden can offer a buffer zone between the chaos of the outside world and your homelife. Now is the time to schedule your Garden Consultation!
Letting go of things can create space in our lives that can be filled with positive, productive activities. Here are some of the benefits of creating space by letting go:
Organic gardening combined with permaculture is an awesome way to grow a healthy garden sustainably. With permaculture, you can work with nature and enjoy practices like composting, mulching, water harvesting, and companion planting. Composting recycles yard and kitchen waste into soil nutrients, while mulching retains moisture, controls weeds, and adds organic matter. Water harvesting allows you to collect rainwater and direct it using swales. You can also plant different species together for mutual benefit through companion planting. By incorporating these permaculture principles, you’ll have an amazing, productive, and eco-friendly garden.
I’ve often started a class by asking “What brought you to your mat today?” For most of us the first draw is physical. The need to improve our balance or build strength. After awhile of returning to the mat some find that the benefits reach beyond physical to mental and emotional wellbeing, and suddenly it’s the breathing techniques, the quiet mind and reduced anxiety that brings us back for more. Eventually showing up on your mat takes on a spiritual form and you have now connected body, mind and spirit. That’s the good stuff.
Marla has been teaching the style of yoga known as Vinyasa Flow for over 15 years. In this style of yoga, movement is connected to the breath. Through regular practice, one can experience a wealth of benefits. These benefits include improved flexibility and strength, relaxation, improved concentration and mental clarity, better posture, and improved stress relief. Additionally, Marla’s classes are known for creating a supportive environment where students can develop a deeper understanding of their practice.
