What's new this time!?

We're celebrating the return of Nicole Myslajek with not one but TWO Kundalini classes, definitely coming back by popular demand and earning her opportunity with amazing energy that packs the room. Ali Avalon, returning from deep meditation retreat in Maui will bring us an even more potent sound healing journey each week. Jeffrey Williams, well loved in the community for many of his gifts, will return to the team and take on a Kundalini + Breathwork class also called INU. Brigitte Levitt, a powerful present sub and supporter from the past will join us teaching Kundalini as well. Jasmine Friedman will take her POWER lunch to a weekly offering, the hardest flow class on the schedule in just 1 hour. And we gladly welcome Anna Durga to the schedule for the first time, returning to a yoga career and offering a gentle nourishing Yoga/Pilates blend.

6 Kundalini Classes!!


Amber's keeping the early morning Shakti flowing, Nicoles coming back, Jeffery and Brigitte are taking on Monday and Friday. 

That means Kundalini 5 mornings and 1 evening every week. I think we'll have some new excited unlimited members!

9:30am - 7 days a week!


After keeping a different schedule on the weekend in honor of old traditions, we've finally made the shift and simplified to 9:30 every day. FREE Sunday Yoga continues, with a different teacher each week, just a little easier to wake up slowly. 

We are glad Horacio will continue Geometric Yoga at the new time every Saturday. 

All are welcome to join in this relaxing opportunity for
Connection and Healing
 

Our Noon's Now Start at 12:30!

Can I Help You?

Many of you know that the studio is powered by massage clients supporting me in all these community endeavors. If you haven't worked with me, I'd love to show you what I do. I'm taking clients daily at 11:11.

I've now finally added retail to our business licence. We are proudly offering high quality

Choquiero Chocolate 

Occasionally I bust out a bar to share, and last week a guy handed me a $50 bill to get 10 bars he liked it so much. We have 4 varieties, at the best price in town. 


We love coming together to share our hearts community style! We love Tuesday nights at 6, Fridays at 12:30, lots of special events that bring us together. But the main way we gather continues to be Wednesday night.

We are continuing the tradition, but have been tightening the container a little bit. We now gather officially for Tea after yoga starting at 7:30pm upstairs, but are holding formal devotional music space downstairs with microphones and bigger groups starting right at 8pm.
We will close the formal kirtan around 9:30, and go back to social mode with tea upstairs and jam sessions downstairs for another hour or so. 
There have been many challenges in the lives of loved ones in our community this past year. The sun has returned and with it a new grit and drive to continue forward. But it takes community and courage to rise TOGETHER if we are going to find a new and better tomorrow. We end our email with this encouraging passage by
William Ernest Henley:

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.
Sat Nam! 
Namaste!
Happy Om
