No Yoga Tonight 10/31 ~ Here’s Your Homework

Sorry folks, there will be no class again tonight (Wednesday, Oct 31) at Peaceful Hands. 

We’ll extend this session through next week and start a shortened Holiday session the following week that builds in a bonus class.  More details on all that soon.

In the meantime, I’ve asked these skeletons of 1929 to lead you through a Halloweeny vinyasa …

 

If you know of anyone who might not get this email in a timely fashion … could you let them know for me?  Thank you for your understanding!

Spookiciously Yours, Jackie

No Class Tonight — Monday, Oct 29

Argh! I’m very sorry but I must cancel class tonight unexpectedly.

Just to make things easy, I’m not going to extend the session … instead, I will make sure that the Holiday Session includes a bonus class for everyone to benefit us all!

If you know of anyone who might not get this email in a timely fashion … could you let them know for me?  Thank you for your understanding!

Yoga Schedule Reminders!

Make Time For Your Yoga

Why unroll your Yoga mat at Peaceful Hands? A new study finds that those who took a group exercise class at least weekly for three months had a 26% drop in stress and a boost in mental, physical, and emotional well being. Those who worked out alone, or didn’t exercise at all, missed those benefits. (per the Journal of the American Osteopathic Assn.)

So, join us won’t you?

A couple quick reminders …

Class is a “yes” for tomorrow … Monday, October 8, Columbus Day.

But, there is no class on Wednesday, October 10. This was already reflected in the current schedule, so the make-up date is already on the calendar. Continue reading

Fall Yoga Session Begins Wednesday, September 5!

Our YogaPalooza summer sesh’ wrapped up last week. I hope you had fun. (I did.)

Thank you for spending your summer on the mat with me.  (And, a deep bow to Sandy, who attended all 20 classes this summer. And, bows, too, to Cathy and Lynn who were on the mat all 19 days.)

Now, as it turns to autumn, it’s time to turn down the busy-ness of life.

So busy. So very very busy.

Why not take a moment to get back to basics? A moment just for you?

Unrolling your mat in a dedicated studio has its advantages.

Fewer interruptions, for one …

 

A dedicated Yoga studio allows you to unroll your mat and turn fully inward without the distractions of the phone, the computer, chores, and the demands of the day popping up in the middle of your down dog. It’s a dedicated time to honor yourself – your needs and your good health.

You deserve that. You really do. Continue reading

YogaPalooza Winds Down: Warriors With Heart & Soul

When YogaPalooza 2018 started two months — and 18 classes — ago, it seemed like summer would go on forever. Now, just two classes left before we fold up our 11th annual YogaPalooza summer session.

And, what a summer! It rained and rained and rained. Then it didn’t rain. Then it rained again. (Once it even rained inside the studio … just one of those unexpected YogaPalooza surprises!) We had a record number of classes, three Saturday morning practices, and two wonderful guest instructors. And, three people joined me at every class – well, there’s two classes left, so let’s see if they make it to 20 and their special reward!

And, now here we are. Summer’s nearly gone.

First, thank you.

YogaPalooza Saturday! “Earth, Wind, & Fire”

There’s still a little YogaPalooza left before we wrap up the summer!

And, the last of our three special Saturday classes is tomorrow – August 25 at 9:30 a.m.

Join us for some Earth, Wind, & Fire.

Ayurveda, the science of Yoga, reminds us that we are made up of elements: earth … wind … and fire.  Those are the elements that make up everything – people, trees, bears, frogs  …

High Five, Cats! You’re Earth, Wind, & Fire, Too!

YogaPalooza This Week: “All You Nidra Is Love”

If YogaPalooza had a Yin and Yang pair of classes – two classes that together reflect both the lively spirit of Yang energy and the quiet relaxing energy of Yin – these would fit the bill.

This week at YogaPalooza … Yin and Yang. Monday starts with the lively high-spirited “Yang’iest” class of the summer …

YogaPalooza: Happy Hips & “Min’Yasa”

I love all of YogaPalooza’s classes, but this week brings two of my favorites!

Monday, August 6 ~ Happy Hips, 4:30 p.m. & 6:00 p.m.

Do I love this class because it focuses on bringing ease and flexibility to the hips – the hub that connects upper and lower body, the structure that gives us both stability and movement, and the area especially prone to wear-and-tear and aches-and-pains?

Well, yes, but …

Do I love this class because – year-in and year-out – you tell me you love it, too?

Well, yes, but …

Or, do I love this class because it gives me the chance to, once a year, post this …
