Our entrance has moved from 48 York Street to 50 York Street! Rather than walking directly into the studio space, our new entrance takes you into the foyer area where you can remove your shoes and get comfortable before entering one of our two practice areas. When looking at the studio window the new door is to the right of the window next to the flag. The double doors to the left of the window remain closed and locked, and will only be used in an emergency or as an accessible entrance.
Our studio is located in the heart of Gettysburg in a registered Civil War Building between the Swope Manor and the Brafferton Inn on York Street. The main studio, where we practice both yoga and aerial yoga, has the original and beautiful hardwood flooring. Please be mindful when walking into the space so that we can keep the flooring for another 150 years! The second studio space has been refinished and it will be used for heated yoga, smaller groups, and Reiki. We hope you enjoy the beautiful and historic space as much as we do, and we look forward to seeing you on the mat or at one of our many events.

Presenting With Impact (PWI) $50 per person. When you think about effective and inspirational presenters you can probably identify traits and techniques as to why those individuals made such a lasting impact on you. Did you ever wonder why the presenter was so impactful? Truth be told, the short answer is the presenter’s preparation. However, the more comprehensive answer consists of multiple variables including the message being conveyed, the relevance of the topic, the presenter’s delivery skills, rehearsal, and yes, even previous failures. PWI is a workshop based on research from notable educational psychologists. This research provides the foundation that will allow you to better frame and organize your message so that it will more fully resonate with your audience, i.e., irrespective of whether you are presenting to your work group, to your fellow teachers or healthcare professionals, to your local school board or town hall, or even to an audience of 1000 people, the framework remains the same.
Equally appropriate for the most practiced presenter, and for people who are either inexperienced or terrified of presenting, PWI will provide you with tools and techniques to become a more confident and capable presenter. Come join Down Dog Gettysburg co-owner Everett, who has been teaching individuals and organizations in corporate America and the Federal Government how to present with with impact for nearly 20 years. Sign up now!
