Orange Yoga Holiday Session Begins 10/28

It's the time of year when many of us think – there's no time for yoga, there's no time to quiet down, there's no time to fit in some "me" space.

But, it is exactly at these busy times that we need our yoga more than ever. We can turn to yoga for the amazing peace it provides, the calming energy that can reboot our nervous system, the gentle awakening that can revitalize our immune system, and the wonderful boost it can give to every fiber of our being. As the days turn chilly, our yoga warms us from the inside. And, as the days turn busy, our yoga can give us a spacious heart.

The Holiday Session begins at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio in Orange on Wednesday, October 28, 2009.

Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio is in downtown Orange, Virginia (145 Byrd Street).

This is a special SIX-week session and it is scheduled to run from Wednesday, October 28 through Wednesday, December 9. (There will be no classes – in Orange or Madison – Thanksgiving week.)

Cost is $48 for the 6-week session or $12/class.

For info on location and other details click on "General Yoga Class Info" and "Orange Yoga" under Topics on the right column. Or email me at peacefulhands (at) with questions. I hope to see you at class!

Meditation in October: 10/4 and 10/18

Autumn is the season of air and lightness of being. (Witness all the leaves rustling in the autumn breezes ... that's how our internal energies can be tossed about as well.)

So, meditation is an especially lovely way to ground and nourish the peacefulness within us. Come share in the quiet of meditation, by joining us at Meditation Practice. It's held on the first and third Sunday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio (145 Byrd Street in Orange, Virginia).

We will meet in October on the following Sundays at 5:00 p.m.:
  • Sunday, October 4
  • Sunday, October 18

Our one-hour practice includes a guided meditation, a little stretching, walking meditation, and then silent meditation. This allows us to practice the varied aspects of contemplation in an easy, nonjudgemental fashion. We have pillows and bolsters for floor-sitting and chairs for those who prefer not to be on the floor. If it's your first time meditating or your one-thousandth, there is joy and great benefits to be found when you join your quiet energy in with a group.

There is no cost to attend, although donations are gratefully accepted to help with studio rent and expenses.

If you have questions feel free to email me at peacefulhands (at) or call 540-672-9528. I hope you will join us!

Just a reminder that there will be NO Yoga class in Madison on Monday, October 12. (The library is being used for another function that afternoon/evening.) The 8-week session will be extended to November 2.
