Studio News for Week of Feb 3rd

Let’s stop worrying: What if I fail? Instead, let’s promise ourselves: When I fail, I’ll stick around.”

Happy Month of Celebrating Self Love!

For me, showing up for myself on my mat has been one of the ways I learned to love myself. I think of my practice as a laboratory/classroom where I learn about myself and test out new ways of being in a controlled environment before I try and take them into the world. It was in yoga classes that I first realized the level of internal criticism I had going on, and it was my first practice ground for changing those habits.

This week we have a few changes: Deb’s Pilates Fusion class is moving to Friday afternoons, and Lynn is back and teaching T’ai Chi and Qi Gong on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Heather Gerdes is also beginning some  brand new Basic Fundamental Yoga Classes on Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings. If you have friends who have been talking about wanting to try yoga but are not comfortable walking into an all level class this is a perfect opportunity for them.

See you soon!
