Eat. Connect. Recharge. It’s time for our second annual Driftless Grown gathering! So much can happen in a year. We are looking forward to catching up and hearing your stories.
The evening will begin with a brief recap of Driftless Grown’s work in 2019, and an open conversation on Driftless Grown’s goals and priorities for 2020.
The rest of the evening is all about catching up with old friends, and making new ones. There are so many creative people doing amazing things in the Driftless region. When we all come together, collaborations are formed, friendship are made, and our Driftless community grows stronger.
So join us on Saturday, January 11, as we do all the things. Laugh, vent, eat. Share our stories, our strengths, our struggles. Because by building a strong, supportive community we lay the groundwork for our success.

Yoga Basics Workshop with Melissa Wray
Sat, Jan 18, 10-11:30 am
$15 pay at the door; but please RSVP here so I can plan for attendance!
New to yoga and not sure where to start? Unsure if you’re doing the poses in a safe or right way? Or maybe you’ve been practicing yoga for a while, but want to deepen your practice? This Yoga Basics Workshop (Part 1) with certified yoga teacher Melissa Wray will help with all of these questions! This workshop costs $15, which you can pay at the door. Your RSVP to the Eventbrite link is just so I can plan for how many people will be there!
We’ll start the workshop with a short meditation/breathing exercise to ground us. Then, we’ll spend much of our time together breaking down basic poses and sequences used in a traditional Vinyasa practice. We’ll talk about the purpose behind each pose, look at proper alignment, try the poses together as a group, and link them to other poses. We’ll also save time for a short practice that ties together all the poses we will learn during the workhop. By the end of this class, you’ll leave feeling more confident and comfortable with your own yoga practice! Depending on interest, I may continue these workshops as a series to go further in depth with more poses.
The 1.5 hour workshop costs $15, please bring cash or Venmo/Paypal Melissa on the day of workshop. By registering at the Eventbrite link, you are securing a spot for yourself; you will still need to pay at the door. Please bring your own yoga mat if you have one; if you don’t, I do have extras available free of charge.
Yoga with Melissa Wray
Wednesdays at 6:00 & 7:30 pm (Jan – Apr)
$10 pay at the door, no advance reservation necessary
6:00 – 7:00 pm // Power Vinyasa
This will be a more fast-paced vinyasa class, with emphasis on building strength and flexibility. We will utilize breath to move through a variety of pose sequences. Great for people who want a full-body, supported workout with emphasis on mindfulness.
Combining slow flow (first 30 min) and restorative yoga (last 30 min), this class will start with gentle movement and poses. The last half of the class will be mostly relaxing poses on the mat held for longer periods of time, while focus on breathing and relaxation. Great for people who want a slower, more mindful pace focused on relaxation. Also great fit for those new to yoga or trying it out.
