Meditation Cancelled Today — March 17

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

Yoga This Week: 4 For U

 

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).

Spring Yoga Begins March 4!

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 …

MONDAY, MARCH 4 thru WEDNESDAY, APRIL 24, 2019

Mondays and Wednesdays

4:30 p.m.  |  Level 1 

6:00 p.m.  |  Level 1 / Level 2

PLUS!  Saturday, March 16 and Saturday, April 6

9:30 a.m. |  Level  1 / Level 2

You can always just drop in from time to time, but … taking a session gives you a chance to commit to your practice and enjoy a generous discount (made even more generous, the more classes you take): Continue reading

No Yoga Tonight — February 20.

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

Yoga Updates & Reminders …

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

Meditation Practice on Sunday, February 3

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

Meditation Practice On Sunday, January 6

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
