YogaPalooza Begins July 1!

It’s time!

YogaPalooza 2019 starts on Monday, July 1.

It’s our 12th annual summertime celebration of Yoga.  It’s our dozenth!

8 Weeks.  20 Classes.

The most YogaPalooza ever!

Every YogaPalooza class has a unique focus. Some classic. Some funky. Some sparkfully challenging. Some restfuliciously grounding.

Plus, three guest instructors will join me this year, bringing their special Yoga spirits to YogaPalooza with three classes prepared especially for you.

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.

And, it’s summer … time to lie back, watch the clouds drift by, and enjoy the moment. So, classes can get a little irreverent. A little goofy, too. Just bringing that easy summertime feeling to the mat.

This year’s YogaPalooza 2019 calendar is a mix of YogaPalooza favorites, a few old classes that have been freshened up, and some shiny, brand new ones!

(The current session runs through Wednesday, June 19. No classes next week – the week of June 25.)

WHEE … here we go! Continue reading

* Monday! * Monday! * Yoga! * Yoga!

A quick reminder that there IS Yoga on Memorial Day — Monday, May 27!

One class, 9:30 a.m.  Level 1 / Level 2

There will be no afternoon or evening class on Monday.

Unroll your mat for a flowing Vinyasa practice.

This class is part of the Mo’Spring session … and there’s always room if you’d like to drop in for a class.

More info on classes, fees, studio directions, etc are here. 

And, you can always email me at

I hope I’ll see you on the mat!

Mo’Spring Yoga At Peaceful Hands Starts April 29

The Spring Yoga session at Peaceful Hands wrapped up this past week, but it’s not summer yet … so, what shall we call this next 8-week Yoga session that begins on Monday, April 29?

I was thinking we could call it the:

Breathe Deep Unicorn Bobcat Happy Flowers Lotsa Flow Yoga Session, Plus Pickles.

Why? Because those are all things that make my heart happy … including pickles. And, Yoga makes my heart happy, too. But, for brevity’s sake, let’s just call it …

Mo’Spring (with lotsa flow)

Spring Session Update!!

(This kitty reminds you to not worry about what anyone else’s Yoga looks like. You are you and your mat is yours. Do your own Yoga, be your own Yoga, and it will be purr-fect.)

A quick reminder that there are just two weeks – and four classes – left in the current Spring session … plenty of time to get your classes in!  (The current session is scheduled to wrap up on Wednesday, April 24.) Continue reading

Springtime Yoga Reminders!

Happy Spring!

Over the past few weeks our Yoga classes have prepared us for the springtime – with our “focus on focus” classes and last week’s spotlight on using Yoga and acupressure as a way to help balance the immune system and soothe seasonal allergies and respiratory irritations.

Now, it’s time for some Spring Cleaning … using our Yoga as a way to squeeze out the tired-out winter chill and make way for new life. Let’s refresh together!

Four Weeks left in this current Spring session, so there’s lots of time to get your classes in. (Or, start your classes … because the springtime is the perfect time to unroll your mat for the first, second, or 10,000th time.)

Don’t Forget: Our monthly Saturday morning class is next Saturday, April 6 at 9:30 a.m.

If you’re still interested in an occasional Sunday afternoon Meditation practice, let me know (email me at and I’ll find an upcoming Sunday for it.

And, here’s a quick acupressure refresher from class … Continue reading

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

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 …

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 …


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
