(This kitty reminds you to not worry about what anyone else’s Yoga looks like. You are you and your mat is yours. Do your own Yoga, be your own Yoga, and it will be purr-fect.)
A quick reminder that there are just two weeks – and four classes – left in the current Spring session … plenty of time to get your classes in! (The current session is scheduled to wrap up on Wednesday, April 24.) Continue reading
Over the past few weeks our Yoga classes have prepared us for the springtime – with our “focus on focus” classes and last week’s spotlight on using Yoga and acupressure as a way to help balance the immune system and soothe seasonal allergies and respiratory irritations.
Now, it’s time for some Spring Cleaning … using our Yoga as a way to squeeze out the tired-out winter chill and make way for new life. Let’s refresh together!
Four Weeks left in this current Spring session, so there’s lots of time to get your classes in. (Or, start your classes … because the springtime is the perfect time to unroll your mat for the first, second, or 10,000th time.)
Don’t Forget: Our monthly Saturday morning class is next Saturday, April 6 at 9:30 a.m.
If you’re still interested in an occasional Sunday afternoon Meditation practice, let me know (email me at email@example.com) and I’ll find an upcoming Sunday for it.
And, here’s a quick acupressure refresher from class … Continue reading
MONDAY, MARCH 18 UPDATE: YES! There IS class tonight at Peaceful Hands … 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. See you there! 🙂
Very sorry, my friends, I need to cancel today’s meditation practice. Just a little under the weather and staying in today seems the wisest course.
I’ll let you know when I come up with a rescheduled Sunday for us to meet.
I hope there’s peace in your pretty spring day and I hope you make time for a few minutes of quiet meditation at home.
Thank you for your understanding … ~ Jackie
A song about the number four … which just happens to be this week’s theme at Peaceful Hands Yoga!
The Spring Session just got underway at Peaceful Hands and it’s never too late to unroll your mat with us! 1 … 2 … 3 … 4 practices for you this week …
ONE … Unroll your mat on Monday, 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
TWO … Wednesday, too, 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
THREE … Saturday, March 16 is a spring’y fun-flow Saturday morning class at 9:30 a.m. We’ll give a little extra Yoga love to the hips in this class.
The special once-a-month Saturday morning practice is already part of your unlimited plan or counts for one class in the 8- and 10-class plans. Or, just drop in! ($13).
FOUR … Sunday, March 17, Meditation practice at 4:00 p.m.
Our one-hour Meditation practice is gently designed for everyone. New to meditation? Have an established practice? Just need an hour of peace? Yup, it’s for you. (Sunday Meditation is offered on a donation basis … your gift helps support expenses at the studio.) Continue reading
I feel spring. Don’t you?
Sure, it will probably snow once more … or twice more … or more more. But, I feel spring in my bones. And, I see it on the calendar, too.
The new 8-week SPRING YOGA session at Peaceful Hands begins on Monday.
Spring gives us a vibrant, new energy that can transform our Yoga practice. What was stiff in December, suddenly let’s go. What was cold in January, warms. What was tired in February, awakens. There’s something fresh and alive and wonderful when it’s springtime on the mat!
Come see …

Snow’s Coming Down … Turning Everything White.
Sleet’s Coming Later … No Yoga Tonight!
There’s no telling what the weather will be later today … but I think it’s best to err on the side of caution and cancel Yoga classes at Peaceful Hands for this afternoon and evening.
We’ll extend the current session, accordingly. There are two classes left in the Winter session, which will now run through next Wednesday, February 27. And, the Spring Session will begin on Monday, March 4.
Stay warm and safe! (And, yes, unroll your mat at home tonight and get your practice in!)
Flurryingly Yours, Jackie
From My Heart To Yours …
Just a few reminders for you … as the Winter Session at Peaceful Hands draws to its close.
** The most important reminder – if the weather seems iffy to you, it’s probably iffy to me, too. Check this website or, if you’re receiving this via email, your in-box, before venturing out. I try to post cancellations at least two hours before class time. If there’s no announcement, then class is “on.” (And, of course, if class is cancelled, the session is extended.) Continue reading
Join me this Sunday, February 3, for a mindfulness meditation practice at Peaceful Hands Yoga.
Tibetan New Year – Losar – begins in early February, so we will focus our meditation practice on refreshing and re-vitalizing for the year ahead.
This year ushers in the energy of the earth pig – a gentler, more grounded energy than this past year’s fiery “fire dog.” So, perhaps, things will slow down a bit for us, perhaps things will get less chaotic. And, that’s not a bad energy to focus our practice on. Continue reading
Will there be a Downward Dog today?
Let me answer your biggest question first …
YES! There will be class tonight at Peaceful Hands Yoga at our regular times …
4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
The main roadways, along with most secondary roads, are clear and so is the studio parking lot. Continue reading
There is a beautiful energy that fills a room whenever people sit in quiet together. You can just feel it sparkle all around and through you.
But, that’s not all. There are also profound and proven health benefits, too.
Stress reduction. Improved heart health and blood pressure. Hormonal balance that can improve sleep and metabolism (even better than dieting!). And, brain boosting through improved mental clarity, memory (even helping ward off age-related “brain fog”), and better concentration.
Sounds nice, doesn’t it? Continue reading
