Siouxland: Prairie Rose Yoga 2 Yoga Classes for $7 ($14 value)

Prairie Rose Yoga 2 Yoga Classes for $7 ($14 value)

From Sioux City Journal Deal of the Day


Celebrate life and discover yoga classes that invite you to breathe, balance and grow with this (2 for the price of one) Deal of the Day from Prairie Rose Yoga.

At Prairie Rose Yoga in Sioux City, you will find the dynamic relationship between your breath and flowing movement. You will explore the depths of your body’s restorative power in a soulful and nurturing environment. You will awaken the essence of who you are. Each class flows with creativity, music and symmetry. Through the continuous dynamic flow of asanas, you will access the infinite well of strength and harmony that is within you. With gratitude and honor a variety of classes are offered for individuals of all experience and ability levels.

Course offerings:

Yin Yoga
This class explores a practice that is primarily stationary. Yin yoga offers you the opportunity to allow your body to yield and open, enabling you to reflect and listen to the slow and steady surrender of the body.  The asanas in this session will target the stimulation of connective tissue, joints and ligaments in a quiet and gentle one hour long class.

Vinyasa Flow
This is an energetic vinyasa flow class, fusing breathe with synchronized movement. You will flow seamlessly through Surya Namaskar A& B (basic sun salutations), opening and balancing the body as you explore the path from simple to more complex asanas. Prior knowledge of basic poses is beneficial but certainly not necessary. 

Power is a dynamic vinyasa flow class designed to tap into the infinite well of power from within. You will cultivate personal strength and peace of mind through vigorous flowing asanas that will unite balance and coordination with muscular integration. This class will take you to your edge. Modifications are always available. 

Hot Flow
Fusing breath with flowing movement, you will play the edge with each movement as you cleanse your system and deepen flexibility. This high-powered class is designed to challenge.

Basic Vinyasa
Fully awakening the sense of breathe to movement, this class will help students discover the natural beauty of the body by allowing the body to open slowly, gently and deeply, flowing through various asanas. Students will cultivate a sense of steadiness and ease as they develop the fundamentals of a healthy yoga practice. The perfect class to start your yogic journey.

Chocolate Bowls DYI Recipe (fill with whatever you like)

Chocolate Bowl DYI Recipe!
I seen someone post a picture of a chocolate bowl recently and thought I have to try it!
package of balloons
(smaller the better, i grabbed these at walgreens last night, they only had one size even little water balloons will work, just create a smaller bowl)
(whatever kind youd like that is melt-able) I got this 14oz bag at hobby lobby for $2.99-Reg Price I choose Milk chocolate because its like Hershey's. and we dont like dark chocolate.
Waxed Paper 
Cookie Sheet
Cooking Spray

  1. Layer cookie sheet with wax paper
  2. blow up balloon, spray lightly with cooking spray - if you over spray the chocolate will run off and not stick -set aside
  3. in a large microwave safe bowl melt chocolate: 30seconds medium heat, stir, repeat until its stirable and all melted no more chunks. -Dont over heat/cook about 2-3x is all it took.
  4. dip your pre-made balloons in the chocolate covering just the bottom of the balloon which shapes like a bowl.
  5. place chocolate balloon on wax paper on cookie sheet
  6. put in fridge 15-20mins until chocolate is completely cooled and shaped.
  7. remove from fridge and cut a small slit in the ton of the balloon.  let the balloon deflate slowly, as it does it unsticks itself from the chocolate. -you might have to pull slightly at the bottom of the bowl, be careful not to break your bowl.
  8. put your favorite topping in the bowl, ice cream, strawberries, caramel, whatever you would like.
    *if your not going to use them right away put bowls back in fridge so they dont melt.

    ***Also Note: if you have some white chocolate you can melt it as well, and drizzle some over the ready made bowls for added look.

Meltable Chocolate "chips" from hobby lobby

Dip bottom of balloon in melted chocolate creating bowl effect

after dipping this is what the sides/bottom looks like

put on wax paper cookie sheet, and place in fridge

after fridge you cut a small hole in the top of balloon, letting it slowly deflate itself, it will also unstick itself from the chocolate as it does.

I dont recommend the balloons w/ writing (again i grabbed at walgreens and this is all they had)
but you see the same balloon above deflating and unsticking itself.
fill with your favorite toppings ice cream, strawberries, fruit, whatever you would like.
if your not going to eat right away re-fridge.
