Shifting into Winter

Peace, Love & Joyimages (6)

The Holiday season is well under way with Thanksgiving a pleasant memory, Hanukkah in full swing, and Christmas just a few weeks away. No matter how you may be celebrating the season, outside we’re slowly shifting into Winter.
Winter Solstice arrives on December 22. The first day of winter and the day of most darkness before we turn back towards the light- according to the Chinese system, we use this time to be reminded of our dark, quiet, and introspective “yin” side.  Yet, thanks to the the hustle and bustle and celebrations of the season, we tend to live our lives with the opposite energy. During this time, take a moment, an hour – or a day – to focus inward and care for yourself with gentle movement, breath and relaxation techniques.  From this place, turn your awareness outward toward those you love as you return with new energy for the spirit of these days.
Join us over the next few weeks to prepare for the turn of the season with practices to reflect seasonal changes:

  • A special class Yin/Restorative on Monday Dec. 21 (details and registration below).
  • Practices to reflect the meaning of the Solstice on Tuesday and Wednesday Dec. 22 and 23at regularly schedule open classes.
  • We’ll take a break Dec. 24-31 and close the studio.
  • Join us on January 1 with a special New Years Day practice. In January, look for a few new additions to the schedule and operations at Yellow Tree Yoga. More about that, soon.

As we return for a few special practices at the turn of the New Year, you can take your internal reflections and begin to create your intentions for 2015.

May you all enjoy a Holiday Season of  Peace, Love  and Joy!

November News

Variety at the Table

Thanks to the bounty of our 2015 Yoga Teacher Training, we are now able to share a larger variety of teachers and practices at the studio. Much like the cornucopia of a traditional American Thanksgiving feast, we’ll find things we love, new offerings and our old favorites. Just as you feast at the table later this month, thankful to enjoy the plethora of good things, we hope you mindfully approach the studio in the same way. With gratitude, choose to try a few new things but feel no pressure to “clean your plate” and do it all. The goal is for many – maybe even everybody – to find something to enjoy.

Wednesday 7am – 8am: New for November! Laura will be offering a morning class Easy Morning Flow for early birds. If you enjoyed or expressed interest in early classes, you might want to consider this opportunity as a way to support your own practice, and to support Laura as she begins to offer her own voice to the teachings at Yellow Tree Yoga.

Saturdays at 7am: a free class each week! Our recent teacher trainees have a chance to practice and you get a free hour of yoga. Join us!

Different Voices

You may encounter a few “subs” in our regular open classes as we tend to other business and training. Thank you for your understanding and encouragement to our friends and teachers for “stepping in” to lead you through the exploration process of yoga in it’s many forms.
