Autumn Yoga Classes 2nd Session Begins

Monday , Nov. 7th, begins the second session of our Autumn Yoga classes.  I hope to see you in the studio!

Mondays Mornings, 10:00 – 11:00am
2nd 6 week session:  Nov. 7 – Dec. 12
No Limits Studio
$42 for each session, or $10 drop-in

Gentle Yoga will explore mindful breathing and moving, foundational yoga poses, and deep relaxation.  Easy-going, invigorating, & restorative.  All levels welcome!

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga*

Mondays, 6:30 – 8:00pm
2nd 6 week session:  Nov. 7 – Dec. 12
No Limits Studio
$60 for each session, or $15 drop-in

Ashtanga-Based Power Yoga is grounded in the Asthanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition.  This is a 90 minutes class designed to build strength and flexibility through vigorous movement and use of the ujjayi (victorious) breath. We will spend time working on individual poses, as well as cultivating the “flow,” linking movement to movement through the breath, which is one of the joys of vinyasa (moving and breathing at the same time on purpose). We will learn modifications that support us where we are weak and ones that challenge us where we are strong. *This class is open to beginners, however, it is not recommended for those recovering from illness or injury. Please be prepared to work hard, as many of the sequences are physically demanding.

An All-Saints Kind of Gratitude

I look back through Novemember’s
just-hanging-on leaves, the negative space
of our promises to drive through Malabar’s
winding road, taking in October’s blasts of color.
The weeks have whipped by, the leaves ignoring my
requests to stay, to never fall away, and my melancholy
drips bitter without the sweet.

Then I see our love’s first fruits hanging
on you, lying on you like so many apples,
our children’s morning sweetness, their bodies’
hard softness, wild hair, pokey elbows,
squishy bellies and meaty feet.  They grow
unconditionally from our branches, buds,
and blossoms.  They grow their own stems and leaves
and seeds and develop their own autumn flavors.

We drop away when we are ripe

thankful for what we are

what we have

and what we miss.
