Generosity of Spirit

Dear Yoga Friends,

Last Friday we gathered for Body Prayer, and I can’t thank you all enough for trusting me with your prayer practice.  It was a truly uplifting experience.  Each of you brought such a generous spirit of open-heartedness, thanksgiving, and charity to our time together.  Your presence, and your willingness to explore the relationship between movement and prayer, was nothing short of a gift.  Thank you.

Please know that your donations added up to a lovely sum that will go to support the Mind Body Align Charitable Fund.  Please click the link to learn more.

If you attended Body Prayer, or were interested in attending but unable to make it, please consider visiting the Body Prayer Feedback page and share your thoughts with me.

Don’t forget:

Yoga classes are on break this week.  Benefit classes begin April 9th, and the Spring session begins April 14th.

Happy Practicing!

Power Yoga Practice ~ Slow and Steady Begins Saturday, September 23rd

Power Yoga Practice ~ Slow and Steady

6 week session, Sept. 23 – Oct. 28

Butterfly House

Slow and Steady is a 75 minute early morning practice of mindful moving, conscious breathing, and gratitude meditation that will strengthen the muscles of our bodies, minds, and spirits.  We will focus on holding the postures for a longer length of time and moving at a slower pace.  Keep in mind that “slow and steady” does not translate as “super easy!”  Moving at a slower pace and holding postures for a length of time longer than our natural inclination is a mental challenge that specifically strengthens our muscles of focus and concentration, as well as the physical muscles of our quadriceps and abdominals.  Additionally, the “Power” in “Power Yoga” does not mean “super difficult or impossible!”  Postures and pacing will be modified and props will be available, so you’ll have lots of options.
