About Jackie, The Baseball Bloggess

Loves the 4-6-3 and the serial comma. All baseball is good baseball, but when the Orioles or UVa 'Hoo's take the field, it's great baseball. Baseball historian ... because baseball touches everything. www.thebaseballbloggess.com And, for the Yoga ... www.peacefulhands.com

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

First, let’s wrap up the Holiday session. The final classes of 2018 are this week on Monday and Wednesday, 12/17 and 12/19.  We’ll be off Christmas week.

Yes! There IS Class Tonight At Peaceful Hands Yoga.

Is there Yoga class tonight (Monday, December 10) at Peaceful Hands Yoga? Let’s ask beloved actor Neil Patrick Harris …

That’s a “thumb’s up” from Neil.

It’s never an easy call.  Trust me, deciding on whether we have class when weather intervenes is one of the least-fun parts of having a Yoga studio.

BUT … the main roads between Madison and Orange are clear. Roads in the town of Orange are clear. And, the parking lot at the studio has been cleared.

SO … YES! … we ARE going to have Yoga classes tonight at Peaceful Hands Yoga.

As always, if you’re concerned about your drive, don’t stress.  Unroll your mat at home. But, I’ll be at the studio — I’ll  have it toasty warm —  and if you’re able to join me tonight, please do.
