Peaceful Hands Yoga ~ New Location in Orange, VA

mats mats matsPeaceful Hands Yoga has moved!

We’re now located at 228 Warren Street, Orange, Virginia at the Sedwick Racquetball Courts.

A deep bow of thanks to those who came out yesterday to help move the studio and set it up again in its new home ~ Barb and Donnie and Dotty and Joe and Randy and Sandy and Susie.  While moving a Yoga studio is a pretty easy endeavor (very little heavy lifting), it still takes time and love to get things set up “just so.”

I will miss the little studio that served us well for the past two years.

all packed upIf you think moving a Yoga studio is easy … yes, you’re right. Roll up the mats, pile up the pillows, and don’t forget to pack Shiva!

blocks are packedThe blocks are stacked. The mats are rolled. And, Buddha is down from his perch near the ceiling. Time to go … 

mat cleaningOnce everything was moved to the new space, we cleaned up the loaner mats … and when we unrolled them all, we realized just how much more space we will now have!

And, after only a couple hours of moving and stacking and moving and unpacking, Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio is ready for you. The mats are ready. The room has been smudged with incense to bless it. And, all that’s left now …

time to ring the bell… is to ring the bell.

Peaceful Hands Yoga Moves To Warren Street In Orange

changeOver the past 12 years, Peaceful Hands in Orange, Virginia has become a Yoga family and I’m grateful to everyone who has been part of our classes — those who come every week and those who are only able to come once in awhile. You are a special part of the Peaceful Hands Yoga family.

And, now I’m delighted to invite you to our new Yoga home …

Beginning December 31 (New Years Eve!) we’ll be located at the Sedwick Racquetball Courts (in the upstairs studio). The address is 228 Warren Street in Orange … very easy to find (directions below).

This change brings many new benefits. First and foremost, a lot more space to stretch out comfortably and play in a nice wide-open studio! Plus, more parking and easier in-and-out before and after class.

While our address is changing … the spirit of Peaceful Hands Yoga remains the same.


Look … our Ocean Wall has already arrived!

I hope you and your Yoga mat will take the new studio out for a spin.

(My massage studio will remain in downtown Madison.)

Here’s our upcoming schedule.

*** Last class of our current HOLIDAY session is this Monday, December 15. Be sure you get your Yoga in before the Christmas break. This is our last class in our current studio.

I also have some lovely items available for Christmas stocking stuffers and gifts, including CDs for peaceful meditation and restful sleep, beautiful handmade origami stars and birds for decorating trees and packages, and a limited number of those awesome “sticky” Yoga gloves that keep you from sliding off of your mat.

And, of course, holiday gift certificates for massage or Yoga … or both! Do a bit of shopping before or after Monday’s class!

*** Make a healthy, fit, and vibrant 2015 your New Year’s Resolution!

And, begin that commitment with Yoga classes on New Year’s Eve AND New Year’s Day:

Wednesday, December 31, New Year’s Eveclasses at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. ~

Thursday, January 1, New Year’s Day ~ class at 9:30 a.m.


And, what could make these classes even sweeter? What if they were free?? If you sign up for the upcoming 8-week Winter Session (which begins Monday, January 5), you can get one — or BOTH — classes for Free!

Here’s the Free-Deal … Come to class on New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day, and if you sign up and pay for the upcoming 8-week Winter Session … take ONE of these classes for Free.

Or, an even “Free-er” Free-Deal … Sign up for the UNLIMITED class option and BOTH the Wednesday AND Thursday class are free for you!

Our 8-Week 2015 Winter Session will begin on Monday, January 5.

Go approx. 2 blocks and follow the orange Route 20 Detour signs which will guide you to a right turn onto Warren Street. The road curves around and then you’ll see the gold metal building on the right — that’s the place!

There’s no sign on the building at the moment, but that will be coming soon!

You may park anywhere in front of or along side the building, or in that big open area to the right of the building. Enter through the front door. (Please do not use the side entrance steps; that door will be locked.) The Yoga studio is on the second floor.
