Westport, CT (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
On September 1, 2013, yogi and Westporter Merri Mueller will open M3 Yoga Studio at 44 Main Street in downtown Westport amidst a celebration of live music, food and a sample of yoga classes, all for free. The complimentary classes will continue all week with the regular schedule and moving forward anyone new to M3 Yoga Studio will be able to join for 30 days for $30.
The opening day schedule starts at 9 a.m. at Lululemon’s Westport retail location on Main Street where Mueller will lead a class and M3 Yoga Studio will be the store’s yoga studio of the month. Then classes move to M3 Yoga Studio at 44 Main Street for the remainder of the day. Classes will each be 45 minutes, giving people a chance to try something new or simply try M3 Yoga; the schedule is:
10:00 a.m. Gentle: Perfect for anyone interested in releasing tension and being more grounded, this class helps athletes, people with injuries or restrictions, seniors, pregnant women, cancer survivors, spinners, runners, relieve tightness and stress.
11:00 a.m. Basics: For beginners, this is an introduction to yoga positions. For the more experienced, this is a chance to refine their positions and attain better alignment.
12:00 p.m. Soul Flow: This class is ideal for anyone looking to lengthen, strengthen and meditate through movement.
4:00 p.m. Vinyasa: M3 Yoga’s version of the well-known yoga style; it is open to all students who want to move a little faster, holding poses longer and create internal heat.
5:00 p.m. Meditation: Wind down the day with restorative yin poses to deeply relax and rejuvenate the body and mind.
6:00 p.m. Treats and Live Music: Join Mueller for a reception with live music by Scott Williams.
Exemplifying ying yang balance, M3 Yoga Studio will provide space for both socializing and inner reflection. Beyond yoga classes, M3 Yoga Studio is creating a community with social gatherings, workshops, guest teachers, community events and fundraisers. M3 Yoga Studio’s class schedule provides a range of intensity for varying levels of experience and goals.
“M3 Yoga brings people together in a way that supports, nourishes and inspires,” says Mueller, who has RT-500 certification and has been practicing yoga for 15 years. “I want my students to use yoga to challenge their bodies, open their minds and hearts, and draw deeply into movement and stillness. Our new studio will offer unique and inviting classes that cater to all needs, interests, and ages. All of our classes have inspiring music and creative, experienced teachers.”
Mueller, who earned her RYT-500 (registered yoga teacher), started practicing yoga 15 years ago, and has been teaching for the past four years. Mueller was one of the original instructors at Kaia Yoga in Westport, where she has been teaching for the past three years. Yoga has been a factor in her personal inner growth and physical strength, and her passion grew when she realized she could impact the world around her as a teacher. When friends and moms of young children close to her got sick with cancer, she decided to earn her certification in yoga for cancer survivors and started working with cancer patients. Mueller teaches yoga at the Center of Survivorship in Southport, CT and has spearheaded several fundraisers. She created a yoga support group through the Cesar Batalla Family Resource Center in Bridgeport and supports cancer survivors in Bridgeport through the CT Challenge. She is married and a mom of two boys, both of whom practice yoga, are strong athletes, and have supported her fundraising efforts by completing 108 Sun Salutations for the past three years.
