Swāgatam is the Sanskrit word for “welcome” and welcome is the perfect name for the new spring and summer Yoga classes being held at Heavenly Scent. Inspired by nature and set amongst the beautiful and tranquil gardens we will be welcoming the new day that lies ahead or welcoming the evening that sends us to bed. The classes will be geared towards the beginner or intermediate student and will combine flowing Vinyasa Yoga intertwined with calming Tai Chi as well as a bit of Pilates core work. This engaging mix is designed to help you find inner strength and energy as well as a peaceful calm in both body and mind.

The classes will be led by Heavenly Scent’s newest employee Christopher Leadbitter. Christopher is a classically trained Ballet dancer and has traveled the globe performing professionally with the world renowned New York based dance company Les Ballet Trockadero. After 11 years with the company he left the hustle and bustle of New York City and moved back to Michigan where he began teaching, choreographing and coaching for several local dance studios. To keep himself limber and in shape he started taking Yoga and fell in love with the strength building flowing movement of the Vinyasa style. He absorbed the technique like a sponge and soon started teaching his own Yoga classes in Detroit’s Eastern Market as well as workshops at the very popular and trendy Yoga Shelter in Grosse Point and Royal Oak.

Christopher has specially designed the upcoming series of Yoga classes for Heavenly Scent using the natural beauty of the property and its glorious surroundings as inspiration. Yoga can improve blood flow and oxygenation of muscles, foster greater flexibility, increase energy, mental alertness, and stamina, strengthen the core and back muscles and is also a proven mood elevator. Our spring and summer Yoga program will consist of 3 classes per week, 2 morning classes and 1 evening class. The program will run from June and all the way through August and is geared towards beginner and intermediate students.

Remember swāgatam means “welcome” and we hope that you will come and welcome a brand new day or welcome the end of one with us.
