No Yoga on Monday, March 25

There will be no Yoga classes on Monday, March 25, 2013. 

So sorry ... our power is out, the roads are a little yukky, and it's probably just better to throw in the towel. 

We'll extend the session accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding ... and I look forward to seeing you soon ... under sunny spring skies!

Neck & Shoulder Freedom! Workshop 3/23

I'm delighted to welcome Certified Trager Practitioner Carrie Heitsch to Peaceful Hands Yoga Studio on Saturday, March 23 as she leads us to new freedom in our neck and shoulders. 

The Trager Approach is a gentle and effective way of finding ease in the body through movement and changing our own ergonomic habits that create stress and tension.

Carrie's workshop will help us all release built-up tension in the neck and shoulders (and, really, couldn't we all use a bit of stress relief now and then?) and show us ways to make long-term changes in how we carry ourselves.

Using Mentastics (mental gymnastics) and movement that is suitable for all fitness levels, Carrie will share music, guided imagery, and teach new and practical ways to move more freely and easily in the upper body.  These practices can help relieve headaches, shoulder tightness and pain, and stress in the upper back and neck, and correct our own bad ergonomic habits and patterns.

Using these body cues can also help improve your own fitness routines and how you approach hobbies (like gardening, quilting, and exercise). Yoga practices, especially, benefit from the new-found body awareness that this kind of instruction can provide. 

I'll be there.  I hope you will, too.

9:00 to 11:00 a.m.

No Yoga Classes ~ Wednesday, 3/6

Even a little bit of snow affects my satellite internet connection ... and now, with the snow just startin, I'm already starting to lose my connection. 

So ... I hate to pull the plug early, but just to make sure I get the message out to you ... if it's snowing Wednesday morning (and it probably will be) ... then Yoga classes are cancelled for Wednesday, March 6. 

If it's sunny and beautiful out ... then I'll see you at class!

Stay warm and dry!
