August 2013 Newsletter

Hi Everyone!

I have just returned from a 2 week trip to Bali! Man! What an adventure! I did yoga there and took a cooking class and saw a volcano and worked in the rice paddies (well, not exactly "worked" but pretended to work) and ate delicious food and just dug on the whole scene. 

But as fun as it was to go, it was soooo nice to walk back into the studio this week and reconnect with everybody.

The August schedule is exactly like the July schedule with one addition. I am running 4 weeks of "Yoga Workout" on Thursday nights at 5:30. This is different from the Power Hour class on Mondays, but it's equally as intense. In Power Hour we riff off the Sun Salutation. In the Yoga Workout, there are elements of the sun, but no "flow." The pace is slow, but the intensity is ramped up. Sometimes Power can get sloppy because we rush to keep up. In this practice, because the pace is much slower, we can't slur through. We have to pay attention. And this is where the gold lies. It's not a class for raw beginners but I think most of you who have practiced for a little while and know basic postures can do it. This is definitely a workout, but it is meditative rather than high-speed.

I am taking off next week to visit my daughter on the west coast so the studio will be closed from the 5th to the 9th.

So, just to recap: 
*Morning yoga on Monday and Wednesday at 6:15 by donation.
*Power Hour on Monday nights
*Yoga in the Goldilocks Zone on Tuesday nights
*All-Levels on Wednesday
*Yoga Workout on Thursday
*Happy Hour at 4:30 on Friday.
No classes the Week of August 5th-August 9th.

Have a great rest of the summer and I hope to see you sometime in August!

Love, Kath
