“I see a real yogi as a someone who is committed to growth and to being the best version of themselves, and, at the same time, is courageous enough to be fully present and authentic in each moment. Someone who is not afraid to get real about the whole mess of who they are – the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Hi Everyone!

We are back to our regular September schedule this week so it’s a great time to check out one of Lynn’s Qi Gong classes.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed we currently only have 2 evening classes. If you are interested in more evening classes or know someone who would take classes at Infinity if the times worked out better for them, please take this short survey (or pass it on). Thank you!

Dear Infinity Students,

Jacque wanted me to let you know that she’s now able to cool down the studio with the air conditioner so don’t let the heat keep you away!

On that note, please always let your teacher know if the temperature is uncomfortable for you during class. We have the large window AC to accommodate us in the summer and the wall heaters to help keep us warm in the winter.

Our classes are back to our regular schedule this week, with the exception of no Qi Gong on Saturday. Lynn is still adjusting to a new job so if you are planning on attending Qi Gong please get on her personal email list so she can let you know of any changes that come up.

warmly,

Dear Infinity Students,

We are back to our regular schedule this week with one addition. Due to a special request I’m teaching Gentle Yoga this Saturday morning, so if you’ve been missing starting out your weekend with me please feel free to join! This class will return for real this September.

Infinity Wellness Center has some great events coming up. The first is a free Pets and Pests doTerra class coming up on the 10th. Then on July 17th, Infinity is offering a day of Safe Breast Screening Thermography.  Thermography is a safe and effective way to detect changes in breast tissue and we’re excited to offer this important service.

Hope to see you all soon!

Happy 4th of July!

Make sure you read through the schedule carefully to find out what classes are running during this holiday week. If you’re looking for a class to take on July 4th itself, let me suggest you join Jacque for Nia, it is sure to delight!

I’d also like to clarify that Gentle Yoga at the Coop is on July 16th, not July 9th as I erroneously put in last week’s email.

“When you shift your perception of life from victim mode—everything bad happens to me—or judging mode—this is great, this sucks—and shift to a curiosity and a desire to more fully discern the truth, then you are walking with Beauty”
―Ana T. Forrest, Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit

 

Dear Infinity Students,

Today as I write I’m reveling in the joy of practicing with some of you all week, enjoying the salutations at The Longest Day, and experiencing SHIFT~ last night. The word community is echoing through my mind and I am truly appreciating all of you.

I know some of you are super busy this time of year and perhaps haven’t checked in with your Infinity community in awhile. We are here for you when you return. There’s a mat or a place in a Qi Gong class waiting for you.

Speaking of Qi Gong classes, please make sure you check the weekly schedule; Lynn has been traveling and attending to family so the schedule is shifting a bit from week to week.

Dear Infinity Students,

Remember on Friday evening as part of The Longest Day event we’re partnering with Muddy Waters Yoga Studio to celebrate with 108 Salutations down by the levee. And Saturday is SHIFT with Sharon Mansur and Erin Drummond. Join us for a informal performance followed by delicious snacks. Information about all of this is below.

We also have some interesting talks hosted by Infinity Wellness Center this  week. On Wednesday 4-5pm there’s a Sun & Skin doTERRA class,  giving information on which oils are photosensitive and should not be used on your skin prior to going outside in the sun. On Thursday at noon there’s a free talk on Mental Fitness featuring local Hypnotherapist Sarah Ventura.

Don’t forget that this Tuesday Mollee’s Gentle Yoga class happens at Bluff Country Co-op so you’ll want to make sure you pre-register.

Have a beautiful week!

Dear Infinity Students,

We’re excited to announce we’re partnering with Muddy Waters Yoga Studio and The Longest Day community event to celebrate the Summer Solstice with 108 Salutations down by the Levee. More information below!

I have some unexpected demands on my time and energy and have needed to let some things go so I am going to take a summer break from my 4:30pm class on Monday and my 10:45am  Saturday morning Gentle Yoga class. I’m sorry if this seems abrupt I am deeply appreciative of all of you who attend these classes and your commitment to your practice, and I plan on returning in the fall. My Monday/Wednesday/Friday 8:15am classes will continue through the summer and for the foreseeable future, hopefully I will see you there!

Love,

~Elle

We are excited to welcome Sarah Maxey who begins teaching weekly classes Tuesday, June 4th at 5:30pm. She’s a familiar face around Infinity Yoga Studio, as she’s been a dedicated student since we opened our doors 5 years ago. I had the pleasure of taking a class from her a few weeks ago and definitely left with that lovely Vinyasa buzz. I highly recommend you add this class to your schedule and experience it for yourself.

We are back to our regular schedule this week, with the one exception that Alanna is subbing for Mollee’s Tuesday noon class.

See you on the mat soon!

Happy Memorial Weekend!

As you might have heard, the clinic is closed tomorrow, but I am still teaching the 8:15am class. 4:30pm class is canceled.

I want to draw your attention to a few upcoming events hosted by Infinity Clinic. There’s a Green Cleaning Class on Wednesday, May 29th, an informational session on Dry Needling on Thursday, May 30th, and a Mental Fitness talk on Thursday, June 20th.

Don’t forget that Sarah Maxey’s class begins Tuesday June 4th, 5:30-6:30pm. You’ll also want to save the date of Sharon Mansur’s next SHIFT~ which is Saturday June 22nd.

This coming Sunday, June 2nd, there will be no Restorative and Yin Yoga, April will be back on June 9th. For those of you looking to “relax and restore” before then, you are in luck because that is Alanna’s theme this week!

“Our feelings are our most genuine paths to knowledge.”
―Audre Lorde

Sunshine rising lotus flower in Thailand. There is a path that leads down the middle towards the sunset.

 

Hello Everyone,

I love this quote. It has served to remind me again and again how important it is to slow down and actually pay attention to how I feel. As the world seems to demand my attention more and more, and information streams in at an overwhelming rate, sometimes this wisdom can get lost. And yet at the times in my life when my practice and awareness are their strongest, so is my ability to cope and my ability to contribute to my community.

So while you’re planning your summer schedule let’s remember not only how much our bodies need us to take care of them, but also what wisdom awaits us when we take time to go within.

See you on the mat!

Happy Mother’s Day

“Tolerance, like any aspect of peace, is forever a work in progress, never completed, and, if we’re as intelligent as we like to think we are, never abandoned.”
―Octavia E. Butler

Happy Mother’s Day!

There’s still room in April’s Mothers Day Restorative class! Just message us on FaceBook to let us know you’re coming. More information below.

Many of you know Sarah Maxey from class, but you may not know she is also a teacher.  I’m happy to announce she’s teaching a series at Infinity this summer called Summer Flow: celebrating sun and self-care. It will run Tuesday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm beginning the first week in June. More information to come!

Next weekend is SHIFT~, a performance salon with poet Mai’a Williams and musician woolen lover curated by Sharon Mansur, as well as the Journey into Spring Retreat. There is information about both events below. No need to register for SHIFT but if you’re coming to the retreat please let me know as soon as possible.

In other Forrest Yoga news, former Infinity Forrest Instructor Jen Bayer is in town and will be at class tomorrow!

See you soon!
