About Us

The Westfield Yoga Center focuses on Hatha yoga, which is the yoga of the body.  Hatha yoga uses warm-ups, physical postures, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to bring about a wide range of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. It brings about union or integration of body, mind, and spirit.

Westfield Yoga Center owners,Tom Swochak and Sally Barber had been married for 15 years in 1993 when they enrolled in Westfield Yoga Center’s inaugural class. Their intention “to do yoga together” was more than fulfilled: four years later they assumed ownership of the center!  Tom’s business background in management and accounting and Sally’s experience in clinical rehabilitation and supervision create an ideal combination for managing a yoga center. Tom enjoys combining student and teacher support with the business tasks essential for maintaining a viable enterprise. Sally loves teaching yoga and balances classes with a variety of administrative and environmental tasks. Both are involved in program development and community outreach. 

 

Westfield Yoga Center seeks to maximize individual health and community well being through the medium of yoga.  The WYC has served this mission for over 20 years.

We remain committed to yoga as a powerful vehicle for personal health and community well-being.  We are now considering alternative ways to meet this mission while keeping everyone as safe as possible. Be assured, you will be updated accordingly as we respond to this fluid situation.

Namaste,
Tom and Sally

What to Expect

The theme of this class is to bring slow rhythmic movements in harmony with the breath to promote deep relaxation.  We will explore releasing, also known as sung, through soft, smooth, circular, spiral and rhythmic  movements. Sung is a principle in Tai Chi that can be experienced without learning the complexities of a Tai Chi form.  We will explore how these ideas can be integrated into daily life and, if desired, in learning a Tai Chi Form.  Open conversation among class participants will lead the direction of the information shared.  This class requires no prior Tai Chi experience just a willingness to learn.

Emily's certification as a Yoga Instructor comes from My Vinyasa Practice based in Austin, Texas.  As one who works in Human Services and is a current graduate student in Clinical Psychology, Emily is very interested in trauma-informed practices. She enjoys a wide variety yoga ranging from meditation and gentle restorative classes, to moderate traditional yoga, to fiery vinyasa flows.  Emily is grateful to those who share their practice with her.  In turn, she creates an empowering space for all.

Yin Yoga 

Led by Melissa Johnson

What to Expect

Yin is a passive floor-based practice either seated or reclined.  Poses are held for about 3-5 minutes followed by short periods of gentle movements where we will access deep layers of fascia and connective tissue to help bring comfort and relief to the joint system.

Dress comfortably and if you'd like, bring a favorite blanket and/or pillow!  We will also have access to props here at the yoga center.  Some props (pillows, blankets, blocks) may be needed to more comfortably relax in a pose.  Let's join together to alleviate tension, enhance breath awareness, and develop mindfulness all while bringing some relief to our joints and connective tissues!
