Class On Wednesday, Plus A Special Guest Class On Thursday!

Oh my, it’s hot outside! Come inside — it’s cool at YogaPalooza and there are two more classes awaiting you this week!

First up, tonight with me – give your back some Yoga love with “Spine Awakening” at our regular Wednesday 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. times.

And, there’s class again tomorrow, Thursday!

Join special guest instructor Carrie Heitsch for a 4:30 p.m. class on Thursday, July 18 – “Mindful Mobility: Resilience.”

Mindful Mobility is an ongoing weekly movement class at Peaceful Hands and Carrie has created this week’s class just for YogaPalooza.

As part of the “Mindful Movement,” Carrie will guide the class using the resilience of balls of different sizes, textures, and densities to explore and enhance the resilience and alignment of our own bodies, paying particular attention to the feet and pelvis – the keys to easy, fluid movement.

YogaPalooza is about exploring movement and body awareness in new and different ways. So, this is a perfect fit!

Carrie’s “not-Yoga, but Yoga-inspired” gentle practice merges influences from The Trager® Approach, Franklin Method (dance-inspired, imagery-based movement education), and biomechanical principles.

Carrie teaches Mindful Mobility every Thursday afternoon at Peaceful Hands and is a Certified Trager Practitioner in private practice in Culpeper. Learn more about Carrie and her classes here.

Please dress as you would for Yoga and bring your mat, if you have one.

If you’re already registered in the YogaPalooza session this Thursday’s class is included as part of your Unlimited session … or … it counts as one class if you’re taking the 8- or 10-Class Session.

Drop In’s are welcome, too! Drop-In Fee: $13

YogaPal”ooops”a

Oops!  I just discovered that some of you may have received an incorrect YogaPalooza schedule — with an incorrect Saturday date (Saturday, August 24 for “Earth, Wind, & Fire”) and incorrect pricing on the 8-class option.

I’m not sure how that happened, but oops … and sorry.

Some days … Just like this.

And, just to get back on track … here’s the link to the correct schedule, with the correct dates and the correct fees.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

YogaPalooopsaly Yours, Jackie

It’s Almost Time!

Just a reminder …

No classes Monday or Wednesday with Jackie this week – the week of June 24 – at Peaceful Hands.

YogaPalooza 2019: “the dozenth!” begins next Monday, July 1. The full schedule and details are here.

If you’ve never done a YogaPalooza session with us, it’s my opportunity to get a little playful with our Yoga practice. Some practices are classic, some are brand new. Beginners are welcome to join us … come with an open mind, an open heart, and the spirit of summertime ease.

Or, maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve been on your mat. This is the perfect time to unroll it and start again. Your mat — and I — will welcome you home!

Or, maybe this is your “dozenth” YogaPalooza with me. I can’t wait to see you!

Word of mouth is the greatest way to share our studio. Is there someone in your world who would enjoy a little summertime Yoga? Thank you for helping spread the word!

It’s not a work-out. It’s a play-in.  YogaPalooza will move the body, free the mind, and feed the heart.

It’s almost time … I can’t wait!

YogaPalooz’fully Yours, Jackie

YogaPalooza Begins July 1!

It’s time!

YogaPalooza 2019 starts on Monday, July 1.

It’s our 12th annual summertime celebration of Yoga. It’s our dozenth!

8 Weeks. 20 Classes.

The most YogaPalooza ever!

Every YogaPalooza class has a unique focus. Some classic. Some funky. Some sparkfully challenging. Some restfuliciously grounding.

Plus, three guest instructors will join me this year, bringing their special Yoga spirits to YogaPalooza with three classes prepared especially for you.

If you’ve never experienced YogaPalooza … it’s my time to share special classes, following classic and not-so-classic Yoga themes. All in the spirit of bringing balance and ease.

And, it’s summer … time to lie back, watch the clouds drift by, and enjoy the moment. So, classes can get a little irreverent. A little goofy, too. Just bringing that easy summertime feeling to the mat.
This year’s YogaPalooza 2019 calendar is a mix of YogaPalooza favorites, a few old classes that have been freshened up, and some shiny, brand new ones!

(The current session runs through Wednesday, June 19. No classes next week – the week of June 25.)
WHEE … here we go!
