“Move The Way Joy Makes You Move.”
Quick reminder — this is the last week of the Mo’Spring Yoga session with classes on Monday and Wednesday this week, 4:30 p.m. & 6:00 p.m.. So be sure to get your classes in before we wrap up the session.
And, I know that some of you like to print the YogaPalooza calendar to keep track of the quirky summer schedule. So, I’ve put together a downloadable copy in PDF format for you. It makes a lovely addition to any refrigerator. Or, take it with you.
Interesting photos of your calendar and you out in the world — at your office, on the beach, in the garden, out for a walk with your dogs, on the mat! — are always welcomed. And, yes, you’ll win a prize if your photo is the super-duper awesomest!
Email your YogaPalooza-ish photos to email@example.com
Here’s the calendar: YogaPalooza 2018 Calendar
And, for more info on YogaPalooza, including details on the schedule, visit here: Ready … Set … It’s YogaPalooza 2018!
And, yes, please share the calendar with your friends — it would be great to welcome more friends to the Peaceful Hands Yoga community this summer and your referral and outreach would mean a great deal. Thank you!
See you on the mat!
Paloozfully Yours, Jackie
YogaPalooza 2018 – our 11th Annual Summer On The Mat – begins Monday, July 9 and is scheduled to run through Wednesday, August 29.
Every YogaPalooza class has a unique focus. Some are classic. Some are funky. Some sparkfully challenging. Some restfuliciously grounding.
Plus, two new guest instructors will bring their special Yoga spirits to two Saturday morning classes.
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. A little irreverent, sure. Sometimes goofy. Always fun.
I’m excited to share this year’s YogaPalooza 2018 calendar with you …
I have six “needy” Peaceful Hands Yoga things to cover with you today …
1) Need Yoga? Yes! There is class on Monday, May 28 – Memorial Day. Classes, per usual, at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
2) Need Even More Yoga? The current “Mo’Spring” session is underway and is scheduled to run through Wednesday, June 27. (You can join a session at any time, so no need to wait to unroll your mat.)
We will be off the first week of July (no classes on July 2 or July 4). Our 11th annual YogaPalooza is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 9. That special schedule – including Saturday classes and guest instructors – is being prepared and should be out later in June. Stay tuned …
Give Yourself Permission To Unwind
A couple quick Peaceful Hands Yoga things for you today …
This week – Monday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 2 – are the final classes of the current Spring session. Be sure to finish up your sesh’ with a flourish as we take one more week to reconnect our body’s favorite – and only — ball-and-socket joints … hips and shoulders.
New session – 8 Weeks of Mo’Spring, Mo’Yoga – will begin on Monday, May 7 and run through Wednesday, June 27.
Same pricing and class discounts. All the general info, including class schedule, fees, studio directions, is here.
Four things on this snowy Wednesday!
1) It really did snow!
Where did the spring flowers go?
While the snowing part is probably done, there’s no reason to venture out in the yuck for Yoga. There will be NO classes tonight at Peaceful Hands – stay in, stay warm, and we’ll extend the session accordingly.
2) Knee issues?
Some folks have struggled with Table and other poses that put weight on their knees. I am pleased to offer a Yoga pad for knees that is working great for other people in our classes. It’s light, made of the same material as a Yoga mat, gives cushioning (under your knees, under your hips, under your head in savasana … ) and doesn’t get in the way of your practice.
Reviews from four Peaceful Hands students who are using it:
“After my meniscus surgery, my knee was very sensitive. The knee pad is wonderful and I am continuing to use it on my old knees. I highly recommend it for anyone who has pain from kneeling to do work or for enjoying Yoga. I truly believe without my pad, I would have suffered more discomfort and I would not have been able to enjoy my Yoga practice.”
“The knee mat is very comfortable & gives me the support I need. I was worried that it would get in my way of doing poses not involving the knee but it didn’t. Highly recommend it for anyone who has knee issues or just for more comfort.”
“I don’t know how I did without it. … It eases the pressure on my knee whenever we are in a kneeling asana. It can also be used under your head during savasana or under your feet when sitting cross-legged. I love it!!!”
“It’s great! I love it!”
If you’d like me to order one for you, just let me know. Your cost is my cost: $20, which includes shipping/tax, etc.
Lots of things to cover today … here goes:
One Winter Class Left!
The current 8-week Winter Class session at Peaceful Hands concludes tomorrow, Monday, March 5. 4:30 & 6:00 p.m. Be sure to get your classes in!
New Spring Yoga Session Begins Wednesday, March 7, 2018
The 8-week Session is scheduled to run …
Very sorry, friends! I woke up in the middle of the night with fever and chills … not a good way to start a Wednesday. So, I’m cancelling classes tonight (Wed, February 21) so that I can rest up and so I don’t expose you to any germs.
If you have a Yoga friend who might not get this message via email, could you let them know … just to save someone from making an extra trip. Thank you!
We’ll extend the session accordingly so all our classes for the session get in. Very sorry again … See you next week! ~ Jackie
Happy New Year – it’s Losar, Tibetan New Year! “Losar Tashi Delek!” (That means I wish you good fortune in your new year.)
I like that Tibetan New Year usually falls near the start of spring. It just makes sense. It’s a time to start fresh, a time for renewal. And, with the warming temperatures outside, I can feel spring in my bones. Can’t you?
A couple Yoga reminders and an upcoming special Saturday workshop in March to tell you about.
YES, there will be Yoga tonight, Wednesday 1/17, at Peaceful Hands. 4:30 & 6:00 pm. The main roads are clear and most side roads are in good shape. (If yours aren’t, please don’t stress.)
I hope to see you!
And, here’s an interesting article from 2013 that discusses medical research into how Yoga helps support the immune system: Yoga practices can have an almost immediate impact on gene expression, particularly in immune cells.
We’ll continue our practices focused on nourishing and nurturing the immune system tonight. I hope to see you!
There will be no Yoga classes at Peaceful Hands Yoga today. Very sorry for the short notice, but our sidewalk is already slick and there has been sleet in the area. I wouldn’t want anyone out on icy roads or sidewalks just for class.
We’ll extend the session … and look forward to Wednesday’s class … it’s all about immune support! Stay warm and safe today!
Carefulishously Yours, Jackie
