Celebrate Summer! Summer Yoga Retreat Is Sat., June 21

The Summer Solstice is a perfect time to celebrate the warming energy of the sun above us and the sun within us. Join me for a Yoga "Mini Retreat" that will open body, mind, and spirit to that warm, healing energy that comes from above and from within.

The Summer Yoga Retreat will be held:

Saturday, June 21, 2008
9 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
"Be Yoga" at Peaceful Hands Studio
145 Byrd Street in Orange, Virginia

The day will include yoga, including a special Summer Salutation, self-massage instruction to cool the body’s internal fire during the warm summer days to come, guided meditation and reflection, and the energy of seasonally inspired Ayurvedic movement and music that will balance the warm and cool energies of the body, mind, and spirit.

(Morning meditation begins the day at 8:45 a.m. if you would like to come a bit early.)

The Orange studio is a cozy and sacred space for yoga and meditation. There is very limited space available for this retreat. Register early to ensure your spot.

The cost is $50 for the retreat. SPECIAL: For students who are currently registered in either my Madison or Orange yoga sessions, the cost is $45.

For information or to register, contact me here at peacefulhands (at) gmail.com or call me at 540-672-9528.

Madison Yoga: New Session Begins 5/19

The 8-week “Summer” session of Madison yoga begins Monday, May 19. The session runs through Monday, July 14.

There is no class on Memorial Day, May 26.

Because of the way the schedule unfolded this year (and due to far fewer “snow day” cancellations earlier in the year), this will be the only summer session of yoga in Madison. (In other words, no “mini session” through July as we’ve had in the past.) After this session, we will take a yoga break in Madison; the new fall session will start after Labor Day. So if you have plans to unroll your mat at class during the quieter days of summer, this is your chance!

(Yoga classes, including a few special classes and workshops, will continue through the summer in Orange.)

For more information on class times/location/fees etc scroll down to previous messages or search this blog by clicking the "Madison Yoga" label at the bottom of this post. Or contact me at peacefulhands (at) gmail.com or call 540/672-9528.

I hope you will join us!

Orange Yoga: New Session Begins Wed, 5/7

I almost called this "Summer Session" ... but I realize we're still a ways away. And, in yoga, we don't want to rush into the future; instead we try to appreciate this present moment. And, since this present moment is still spring, this marks the beginning of the "Still Spring" session in Orange.

The 8-week "Still Spring" session of yoga in Orange will begin on Wednesday, May 5 and will run through Wednesday, June 25.

For more information on class times/location/fees etc scroll down to previous messages or search this blog by clicking the "Orange Yoga" link at the bottom of this post. Or contact me at peacefulhands (at) gmail.com or call 540/672-9528.

You are always welcome ... for a class ... or a session. I hope you'll join us!
