Studio Newsletter for week of Dec. 16th

Dear Infinity Students,

 

This week is Asana with Alanna’s last class until Jan. 10th when her new series starts. Remember if you plan on coming to all 8, register beforehand and get a special price.

Gentle Lunchtime Yoga students, please remember this Tuesday your class is at Bluff Country Co-op. It’s free, but you’ll need to register: 507-452-1815.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who tried to fill out our survey!  For those of you who were able to complete the survey we got your responses and they are very helpful.

Unfortunately even though this survey ran smoothly in our testing, it turned out to be super glitchy for many of you. If you have feedback you weren’t able to give, you can reply to this email or send it to me directly at ellenewman11.@gmail.com. Here are the main things we would like to know:

1. Have you drifted away from Infinity classes? If so, why? Do you plan on returning? Do you need your class to be held at a different time? What other obstacles to attendance are you facing?

2. Do you know if your insurance provides incentives for you to attend classes regularly? Usually this takes the form of a $20 rebate off of a monthly membership (Infinity Monthly Pass) if you attend enough classes. If this was available at Infinity, would you use it? If so please let us know what incentive program you could qualify for and how important it is to you. You can read more about it here. http://www.nihca.org

3. Anything else you’d like us to know, we’re grateful for your feedback!

THANK YOU!

Teacher Feature

The time has come for the featured teacher to be me (Elle Newman), but it takes a tribe to raise a yoga teacher, so I’d like to talk a bit about mine.

I have been lucky enough to have support from my community in every step of my yoga journey. I have had help funding trainings and emotional support when I doubt myself, not to mention dedicated students who show up week after week.

Some of my students have been taking yoga with me from the beginning and have helped shape my teaching with their feedback. Truly, your dedication to your practice inspires me!

You are all a blessing in my life, thank you so much.

If you are interested in watching or sharing a video about the classes I teach at Infinity, you can see it here. If you’re interested in knowing about my career outside of Infinity, please check out my professional website.  While you’re there, enjoy the free meditations.  And if you’re curious about why I wear a mask, here’s some info on Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.

Much Love,

Elle

Studio Newsletter for week of Dec. 10th

Dear Infinity Students,

Well, the easy set up for the survey didn’t turn out to be so easy and I know several of you tried to fill it out but weren’t able to complete the survey. I’m very sorry for the inconvenience. If you didn’t get all the way to the end, meaning you didn’t get to the questions on insurance rebates and the open question about anything else you want us to know, please try one more time.  Here is the link to the survey that works.

Former Infinity teacher Dr. Jen Bayer is in town and is co-leading Monday morning’s Forrest class with me. Join us for a great class!

In gratitude,

~Elle

Lastly, I hope you had a great weekend with family and friends!

See you on the mat!

Teacher Feature

Combining dance, martial arts and mindfulness, Nia tones your body while transforming your mind. If you haven’t tried Nia yet this might seem like a very bold claim. However, those of us who have taken a Nia class with Jaque are nodding our heads thinking, “yep, that about sums it up.”
Jacque Paulsen: My Nia story begins with taking class on a whim — needing to “get some exercise” during a very stressful and busy time of my life.  I had always imagined that I was a healthy and fit person, but as the business of my life marched forward I was getting farther and farther away from the person I believed myself to truly be.  Through Nia I have learned how to truly appreciate living in my body – to let go of the self judgement that was preventing me from finding Joy in my everyday life.  I am so happy I followed that whim.  Nia has taught me to dance through the good and the bad, and to invite in curiosity, laughter, play, and happiness as much as possible.  It feels great — and there is plenty to go around.
I invite you to try a Nia class… and if you are curious, I would love to answer any questions you have. You can email me at reddancingdragon@gmail.com.

Studio News for Week of Nov. 19th

Dear Infinity Students and Teachers,

The two most common compliments  I hear from new students is how warm and welcoming they found Infinity, and how much they loved their teacher. I am so thankful to be a part of our Infinity community!

I am also honored to get to be a part of your self care as we enter the holiday season. Speaking of this, Jacque shared this Personal Awareness Worksheet which is helpful for students in any discipline.

Things to Watch For

Mollee’s Candlelight Yoga class will transition to a special once-a-month event, held on the first Wednesday of every month from 7 – 8:30pm, beginning December 5.

Each 90-minute class includes an additional practice such as meditation, mantra, yoga nidra, energy work, or breathing practices. Pre-registration cost is $10 or an Infinity card punch. Drop-in rate is $15.

The switch to once per month will allow Mollee the time she needs to work on her advanced trainings in Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda, and Traditional Wellness Counseling. She looks forward to sharing new practices with students in her classes, workshops, and private one-on-one sessions.

See you on the mat,

Elle

Studio News for the week of November 5th

Dear Infinity Students,

Make sure you read through our schedule carefully this week: Mollee’s got subs for her classes and Eri’s SomaYoga is beginning this Tuesday. It’s Eri’s last series this year, so you don’t want to miss it.

We’re also excited about a new partnership with Bluff Country Co-op! Read more about this in the upcoming events.

Have a great week of practice!
Elle

Teacher Feature:

Speaking of changes in our schedule, you will also find that Alanna’s class has changed names. It’s now Asana with Alanna. For those of you who know Alanna, you can imagine her delight at the alliteration! Even beyond the poetics, this name is a good a fit for her teaching style. In Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, asana is defined as a “steady, comfortable posture.” which describes Alanna’s teaching style perfectly!

Alanna’s training is in Vinyasa Yoga through Yogafit, but her personal practice and teaching is shaped by 15 years of Iyengar Yoga. Her classes feature Iyengar inspired alignment, and gentle Vinyasa cuing. Alanna often uses props in her teaching to help students support themselves in poses. Beginners have nothing to fear, as her classes move at an accessible pace, and Alanna is a pro at helping students find the right version of a pose for them.

Asana with Alanna is taught in an 8-week series as a way to help her experienced students build towards more complex poses, while still maintaining an accessible environment for the newbie. As Alanna discovered in her own practice, this kind of consistency has rewards. One week’s class sets you up for the next. Alanna describes her own experience with her teacher, Francie Ricks: “Many times I’d find myself craving poses without knowing it was the theme for that night’s class.” Alanna’s goal is to give her own students the opportunity to experience what a consistent rhythm of practice can do for them.

Though students are welcome to drop in any time, it is especially rewarding to attend all 8 classes in the series. For those of you planning to attending all 8, stay tuned: Alanna and I are creating  some special pricing to reward you for your commitment. The next series will run November 29th – Jan 24th (no class Jan. 3rd).

Studio News week of Oct. 21st

Hello, as you can see this newsletter is moving to our new Infinity Blog. Just as before you’ll get each week’s schedule along with upcoming events in your inbox, but in a beautiful new format with more information.

To start things out we’re featuring Lynn Carlson this week. She’s not only our Qi Gong and T’ai Chi instructor at Infinity, she is responsible for the beautiful murals on the walls.

This video is filmed on the land behind Lynn’s house. It’s so inspiring to watch Lynn practice in a nature setting, especially one that she loves.
