Maybe you’ve heard me talk about the limbs of Yoga in class.
The first two are the ones I’m thinking about right now …
The Yamas — the ethics and morals of how we treat those around us.
The Niyamas – how we care for ourselves.
I think you know where I’m going here …
It breaks my heart, but it is, I believe, the right thing to do.
I am suspending my Yoga classes at Peaceful Hands as part of the effort to mitigate this fast-spreading COVID-19 virus.
Am I overreacting? Maybe. I sure hope so.
The Yamas of Yoga, the ethics of how we treat others, asks … no, it demands … that I care for you with love and compassion … with both wisdom and heart. And, that, for me means erring on the side of caution.
So, I’m going to use this website as our connection for now. I’ll write again in the next day or so. I’ll try to come up with a Plan B for helping give you some Yoga in the days ahead.
For now …
I am cancelling Saturday’s class on March 14 and Monday’s class on March 16. (Probably, Wednesday’s too, but let’s just see where we are in a couple days.)
And, here’s what you can do for me.
Talk to me … You can comment at the bottom of this post, or reply via the email you received, or email me at email@example.com … Tell me your thoughts, suggestions, ideas. This is uncharted territory. We are a Peaceful Hands family … and I need your wise words to help guide us all.
You all know that Yoga can help keep an immune system strong. We all need to keep unrolling our mats. Let me know how I can help with that.
Two additional things … If you’ve signed up and registered for the current session, we’ll just extend this session whenever we get back to it. So, you’ll be set.
And, this just applies to my classes. if you are a student of Nancy’s or Annette’s, please contact them directly for their information and schedules.
Thank you for your understanding. We’re in this together. Today, when I unroll my mat, I’ll dedicate my practice to you … every single one of you. By name. Because, we are family.
And, don’t forget … squeeze your shoulder blades together!
