We're about to start the holiday sessions of yoga in Madison & Orange, and I hope you will join us ... with so much stress in the world these days, your yoga mat reminds you to take a moment to breathe and stretch out into the peace that comes from your yoga practice.

November Meditation Schedule

Meditation Practice at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio will be on the following three dates in November:

  • Sunday, November 2
  • Sunday, November 16
  • Sunday, November 30

You'll notice I slipped in a third practice this month -- as we head into what is often a busy holiday season it's nice to slow down a bit and take a deep breath. The special practice on Sunday, November 30 will focus on the spirit of gratitude and Thanksgiving. All donations that day will be donated to help the animals cared for by the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

Practice is held at 5:00 p.m. at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio, 145 Byrd Street in Orange, Virginia. (Park in the side lot, and come in the front doors ... and follow the signs.)

Our practice includes guided meditation, a brief reading, walking meditation, and a quiet sitting practice and lasts about an hour. No previous experience is necessary, just an open heart and the desire to find stillness within. Bringing our joined quiet energy together can be a wonderful experience. (And, there are pillows for floor-sitting and chairs for those who prefer a more "elevated" meditation seat.)

There is no cost to attend, but donations are accepted to help cover rent and expenses at the site.
