Class On Wednesday, Plus A Special Guest Class On Thursday!

Oh my, it’s hot outside! Come inside — it’s cool at YogaPalooza and there are two more classes awaiting you this week!

First up, tonight with me – give your back some Yoga love with “Spine Awakening” at our regular Wednesday 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. times.

And, there’s class again tomorrow, Thursday!

Join special guest instructor Carrie Heitsch for a 4:30 p.m. class on Thursday, July 18 – “Mindful Mobility: Resilience.”

Mindful Mobility is an ongoing weekly movement class at Peaceful Hands and Carrie has created this week’s class just for YogaPalooza.

As part of the “Mindful Movement,” Carrie will guide the class using the resilience of balls of different sizes, textures, and densities to explore and enhance the resilience and alignment of our own bodies, paying particular attention to the feet and pelvis – the keys to easy, fluid movement.

YogaPalooza is about exploring movement and body awareness in new and different ways. So, this is a perfect fit!

Carrie’s “not-Yoga, but Yoga-inspired” gentle practice merges influences from The Trager® Approach, Franklin Method (dance-inspired, imagery-based movement education), and biomechanical principles.

Carrie teaches Mindful Mobility every Thursday afternoon at Peaceful Hands and is a Certified Trager Practitioner in private practice in Culpeper. Learn more about Carrie and her classes here.

Please dress as you would for Yoga and bring your mat, if you have one.

If you’re already registered in the YogaPalooza session this Thursday’s class is included as part of your Unlimited session … or … it counts as one class if you’re taking the 8- or 10-Class Session.

Drop In’s are welcome, too! Drop-In Fee: $13

Thursday, July 18  

One Class At 4:30 p.m.

Peaceful Hands Yoga

228 Warren Street     |     Orange Virginia

The full YogaPalooza class schedule is here.  Directions to the studio and more info can be found here.

I hope to see you on the mat!

Oops!  I just discovered that some of you may have received an incorrect YogaPalooza schedule — with an incorrect Saturday date (Saturday, August 24 for “Earth, Wind, & Fire”) and incorrect pricing on the 8-class option.

I’m not sure how that happened, but oops … and sorry.

Some days … Just like this.

And, just to get back on track … here’s the link to the correct schedule, with the correct dates and the correct fees.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

It’s Almost Time!

Just a reminder …

No classes Monday or Wednesday with Jackie this week – the week of June 24 – at Peaceful Hands.

YogaPalooza 2019: “the dozenth!” begins next Monday, July 1. The full schedule and details are here.

If you’ve never done a YogaPalooza session with us, it’s my opportunity to get a little playful with our Yoga practice. Some practices are classic, some are brand new. Beginners are welcome to join us … come with an open mind, an open heart, and the spirit of summertime ease.

Or, maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve been on your mat. This is the perfect time to unroll it and start again. Your mat — and I — will welcome you home!

Or, maybe this is your “dozenth” YogaPalooza with me. I can’t wait to see you!

Word of mouth is the greatest way to share our studio. Is there someone in your world who would enjoy a little summertime Yoga? Thank you for helping spread the word!

It’s not a work-out. It’s a play-in.  YogaPalooza will move the body, free the mind, and feed the heart.

It’s almost time … I can’t wait!

YogaPalooz’fully Yours, Jackie

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!

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)

Monday, April 29 thru Wednesday, June 19, 2019

Mondays and Wednesdays

4:30 p.m.  |  Level 1 

6:00 p.m.  |  Level 1 / Level 2

PLUS! Memorial Day, Monday, May 27 … MORNING CLASS ONLY at 9:30 a.m.

PLUS! PLUS! Saturday Morning, May 18 and Saturday, June 8

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, grow in your abilities, and enjoy a generous discount (made even more generous, the more classes you take):

$125 – UNLIMITED, Monday/Wednesday classes, PLUS the Saturday classes. Take’em all! (This is nearly half-off the drop-in fee … which is, more than $100 in savings, which, I think you’ll agree, is a pretty sweet discount.)

$80 – 8-Week Session, 10 Classes. Take ANY 10 of my classes during the session, that includes Monday, Wednesday, or Saturday classes. Mix and match as your schedule allows. (You save $50 off the drop-in rate!)

$74 – 8-Week Session, 8 Classes.  Take ANY 8 of my classes during the session.  Any 8 classes during the 8 weeks — you choose the ones that work best for you. (A savings of $30 off the drop-in rate!)

$13 – Drop-In to any class.

OK, so I can’t promise a unicorn … or pickles … well, maybe pickles, but definitely no unicorn. But, I can promise you a Yoga practice that comes from the heart.

More info on classes, including directions to the studio, are hereAnd, you can reach me with any questions etc. at

I’ve saved you a spot. Join us.

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
