Studio News for week of March 25th

I am going to try and pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen.
―Anne Lamott

Spring MandalaHappy Spring!

Especially when life feels like it gets busier, it’s important to take time to slow down and listen to ourselves. Ironically, in slowing down and paying attention we experience more of life.

One great way to slow down and listen is by attending Restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra with April. It’s coming up this Sunday at 6pm.

I also want to draw your attention to the Mini Retreat I’m offering in May. If you often feel like an hour practice just isn’t enough time to go as deep as you want into your practice, or you wish that you didn’t have to choose between attending a gentle class which opens you up or a Forrest Inspired class which warms you up and develops strength, then this is for you. More information below.

Hope to see you on the mat soon!

SomaYoga: Somatics is a way of re-educating the way our brain senses and moves the muscles. Soma Yoga brings this wisdom into our yoga & meditation practice.
