(Hips over heels? Check. Shoulders over hips? Beard is in the way, but, umm, I guess so. Ears over shoulders? I have no idea.)
Too busy for your Yoga? Don’t forget how Yoga can improve your energy, boost your immune system, and help you work through all the cookies and rich foods that come your way.
Here’s your Holiday Update at Peaceful Hands Yoga in Orange …
First … THANK YOU! Your kindness and generosity to the Wildlife Center of Virginia and our annual Yoga Class and Open House benefit was amazing! Randy’s Outback was filled with supplies and food and donations after Saturday’s event. I know a few people would like to bring things this week (just drop off at Yoga class or at my massage studio) so I’ll have a grand total of what we raised for you next week. (Spoiler Alert: we raised more than ever this year!)
Your kindness makes my heart smile wide! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
(And, additional thanks to Dr. Beier for the deee-licious cheesecake, Rod Sedwick for the yummy brownies and for loaning us the tables, Mark Ward for the music … “Heart of Gold” live in the Yoga studio on Saturday, how cool is that!, and Lacy Kegley at the Wildlife Center who made up special brochures just for our event!)
YOGA … Our Holiday Yoga session ends this week. Classes are Monday and Wednesday at 4:30 and 6:00 p.m. It’s a gentle class (I promise!) and will help balance your energy for the busy weeks ahead.
After that, Yoga classes will be on holiday break until New Year’s Eve.
MEDITATION … The second in our Holiday Meditation Practice series is this Sunday, December 20 at 4:00 p.m. I hope you will join us, a little quiet does the mind, body, and heart good. (No need to know “how” to meditate or to have been to the first practice to come to this one.) For more info and the schedule click here.
STOCKING STUFFERS GALORE … I always have a few sweet stocking stuffers available at the Yoga and massage studios for little holiday gifts. Pure room/pillow mists, my own hand-blended Oil of Tranquility, beautiful hand-made ornaments (made by a Fair Trade cooperative of women in India from recycled cotton fabric), music, and more. Come early to class to find a nice gift for a friend … or for you! (cash/check only, please.)
NEW YEAR’S … We will have our annual morning classes on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day (9:30 a.m.) … and then the new 2016 session will begin on Monday, January 4. More details on the new session — and how to get the New Year’s Eve and Day classes FREE — will be posted next week.
I hope to see you during these busy holidays. Thank you for being part of the Peaceful Hands Family. I wish you warmth and love and laughter during these precious days!
