It's a New Year which means 365 times to wake up and go after whatever your heart desires for the year of 2018. I personally am not a huge fan of the typical resolution- but I love adjusting my attitude. This year I am adjusting my attitude towards myself. More specifically....I'm going to learn how to slow the "bleep" down!!!!! I'm going to focus my heart and my attention on those I love and my time on commitments that matter to me- that strengthen me- that keep me healthy. One of those commitments is this studio and another is those who trust in me to lead them on their mat!
As most of you know....I have been beyond fortunate to welcome some amazing instructors into the studio. The perfectionist/control freak residing deep inside me really struggled with that decision. However- I ignored that problem tenant and much to my surprise she doesn't seem to come around much anymore. What a gift.....yoga keeps giving them to me....and now to you. It's so fun to be able to come to this place I love and not have to listen to my own voice. Getting lost...on my mat...in this room....MAGICAL!!!! And I have Melissa, Kelli, Ashley, and Nick to thank for that! Heather is taking time off to complete her health/coaching certification and we wish her nothing but Great Luck! I know she will thrive and hope that she will want to return when she is done. Legs Up the Wall....soooo good....I will keep you posted!
So the good stuff....
Nick is now here on Thursday mornings 830am-9:30am. I'm thrilled to have a morning option and hope it works well for some of you! If you haven't met Nick yet....Get in here...You won't be disappointed! He will also be taking over the 4:45pm-5:45pm time slot on Thursdays. Mondays at 4:45pm and Saturdays at 10:30am will be his as well. He offers a fun Vinyasa style class and his adjustments are just awesome! Nick brings a refreshing vibe to this room- his voice carries a strong positive message - his attention to detail calming.
Kelli will still be here on Sunday mornings 10:30am and Monday nights at 6:15pm. Kelli brings something very special to the room....its an energy that is just contagious. She loves teaching and the time and effort she puts into her classes is obvious. Her playlists....well, come on in and see for yourself. Make sure you register ahead of time as space is limited. Sundays is a gentle flow which helps wake the body up and Mondays is more of "kick your booty" style.
Ashley is still planning and may "pop" up a few more places on the schedule. So far she remains here on Friday nights- 5:45pm is a Power style class which promises to push you but in the most encouraging way! 7:00pm is a restorative class...so come get your butt kicked and then stay for the make-up! :) Ashley will also be here on Thursday nights...6pm Power again and 7;15pm is NEW- Guided Meditation. Ashley has an extensive background in Meditation practices and is eager to share what she knows with you. Meditation is an invaluable tool to have in your self-care workshop....give yourself that gift! Ashley's concern for others and commitment to help flows endlessly from her person. Her ability to bring both a safe and comfortable energy to this room will have you trying things you never thought you would or could. Seriously- SOOO FUN!
My Mel- she is very busy over the next few months and will be here off and on. She will continue to offer her Dealer's Choice....and I'm thinking it will probably show up all over the schedule. Mel is a mover....she runs non-stop figuratively and physically. I consider myself lucky to have her here with me. I don't doubt that she will be bringing some new elements to the room that haven't been here yet. She is well-versed in energy work and has some "tricks" up her sleeve. The best part of Dealer's Choice is you never know what to expect....and sometimes...letting yourself just be in the moment is the best yoga gift of all.
I'm here too...thanks to all of you! I will be keeping my Tuesday and Wednesday classes as is...and as they have been for the past few years. Tues 4:45pm Power, 6pm Gentle. Weds 6pm Strength, 7:15pm Stretch and Restore. Yin will remain on Sundays for now at 7:15pm. I'm very much contemplating a move to Monday nights, but not yet sure. I want to get another restorative class on the schedule. Ashley may add a Tuesday night...I may move to Monday or keep both. I'm asking you all first and will make a decision by the end of the month. Matt really wants to "Move" on Sundays- preferably around 6pm....let me know if I have any other takers-
As always, this place is about you. You are on "Vacation" here so if something here needs attention please let me know. Questions/comments/feedback- I love it all.
So there you have it- AM Yoga and Friends (Simply Yoga, muKti Yoga, Ananda Yoga, &Santosa Yoga)
Can't wait to see you!!!
