4-Week Summer Yoga Session In Madison Begins June 14


A little 4-week "mini" yoga session begins in Madison this Monday, June 14. ONE class each Monday at 5:30 p.m. at Wetsel Middle School, Madison, VA.

Classes are scheduled for June 14, June 21, June 28, and July 12. (No class on July 5.)

$12/class or a discounted $32 for the whole session.

(Please note there will be no 4:00 p.m. class through the rest of this summer. 4:00 p.m. is back in the fall!)

Classes are always a little quirky this time of year because of summer schedules -- classes also are smaller, which means more attention and more time to accomodate individual requests for what you would like to do or try! Do come if you can.

General info, including directions to the studio are online ... check the "General Yoga Class Info" tab under topics on the right column.

I hope to see you!

Sat. 6/12 Yoga Class Benefiting The Wildlife Center of Virginia

Unroll your mat and support
The Wildlife Center of Virginia!

Class is Sat., June 12, at 9:30 a.m. in Orange at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio (145 Byrd Street).

As a very special treat, Janice Williams will be coming down to teach this special all-levels yoga class for us.

This is a “donations” class, with all funds raised going to The Wildlife Center of Virginia. (You may bring a cash donation or to receive a letter for your tax-deductible tax records please write a check made payable to the Wildlife Center of Virginia.) Your gift will help all of the Center's patients and also will go to their special efforts to provide critical care to bears and bear cubs who come to them.

How much to give? Whatever you can spare for the critters.

Thank you for being generous ... and for coming out to support Janice who is a wonderful friend and a fabulous and kind instructor.

Let me know if you have questions ... post here or email peacefulhands (at)

June Meditation: June 6 & June 20

Need to cool off from the hot June sun? Sit in cool, peaceful, stillness ... in meditation. Meditation practice meets the first and third Sundays of the month at 5:00 p.m at Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio (145 Byrd Street, Orange). For June we will meet:

  • Sunday, June 6
  • Sunday, June 20

There's nothing fancy or exotic about our meditation practice. It's more like comfort food ... nourishing and cozy. Nice.

Guided, walking, and silent meditation are offered in our one-hour session. Pillows, bolsters, and chairs are available. Even if you've never sat in meditation before ... we all can benefit richly from the practice of stillness. No one is an expert ... that's why we call it "practice." No fee to attend, although donations are gratefully accepted to help cover studio expenses.

If you have any questions, please email me at peacefulhands (at) or call me at 540-672-9528. I hope you will come sit with us!
