The founder of Big Rock Yoga, Wendy Cook, remembers a story from her college years when a family friend went to school on the east coast. He had only lived around southern women while growing up. Within the first month he called home and said, "Mom, the girls look different here!" He wanted to see a woman that had used hot rollers and lipstick! (it was the 80s!) One thing southern, modern women have is the ability to primp! We love our hair-do and make up.
While Wendy loves being a member of the southern woman tribe, where a woman knows how to blot her lips and use more hair products than necessary, Wendy also loves to show up "JUST AS I AM!" The bravest and most freeing experience many women have is to show up in life just as they are. Through our studio many groups of women have bonded deep friedships while breathing and sweating off their make up! They have bonded over the experience of being heard. They have bonded over giving and receiving the support they need on a yoga mat and in life.
i woke up like this is a once a month community event with no physical movement for you to show up just as you are and receive the deeper aspects of a yoga practice off of a yoga mat. You are asked to start with 3 simple rules and grow a deeper connection to showing up JUST AS YOU ARE.
the 3 essential rules:
The intention is to drop your outer mask and be seen. BE HEARD. See others. HEAR OTHERS. And, learn the basic principles of yoga for an empowering and peaceful life.
We will meet monthly on the first Saturday of each month for coffee, light breakfast snack, and connection as a whole group. Please join us as we cultivate a commUNITY of support as women focused on what is most important for our physical health, spiritual practices, and emotional well being in all areas of life.
PRE-ENROLLMENT is highly encouraged, so that we can be best prepared for you! The event is listed on our class schedule.
You can find Big Rock Yoga's founder, Wendy Cook, connecting to spirit on many of these trails. The practice of yoga happens off the mat too! You are invited to explore if hiking is an avenue for you to play in nature and join us as a commUNITY off the mat.
Justine of Ozark Outdoors Supply will be giving us all the needed education and details on day hiking equipment. What is needed. Why it is needed. How you will use it for a day hiking trip.
Day hiking is a perfect way to introduce yourself to hiking in the Natural State of Arkansas...or join us for one of our upcoming yoga and hiking retreats. This year will include hikes within an hour of Little Rock, Ozark trails, and a Spain retreat.
Back by DEMAND! Shauna has created a powerful, fun inversion practice over the last 2+ years. The work she has done has given her a core connection to play beyond most practioners! If you have dreams of flipping upside down with ease, this workshop is for you.

Participants should have a steady practice of 2-3x weekly for a minimum of 6 months with no wrist, shoulder, or spinal injuries.
