UPDATES for the month of AUGUST:
8/16/17 (11:15 a.m.) Good morning everyone! I saw the P.T. yesterday and he is pleased with the progress being made. I may be able to give up the crutches next week, just have them nearby for long periods of standing or rough terrain. I plan to open the Studio Mon. Aug. 21st. So mark your calendars that ALL classes will resume as of Aug. 21st. SEE YOU ALL VERY SOON!
Also mark your calendar that the Sun. Morn. Meditation (9:00-10:00) this month is CANCELED due to another commitment I made.
8/14/17 (2:00 p.m.) THE STUDIO REMAINS CLOSED FOR THIS WEEK. The healing is progressing, still on crutches for this week and hope to be able to go to 1 crutch by the end of this week. The PT is optimistic and says I will make a full recovery but it will require time, patience & persistent with the therapy.
8/10/17 (6:00 p.m.) THE STUDIO WILL REMAIN CLOSED FOR NEXT WEEK (Aug. 14 - Aug. 19). The swelling is going down, some simple therapy has begun and walking on crutching is improving gait and posture. By Aug. 21 I should be able to get around with 1 crutch or just walking sticks, or maybe neither. Thank you all who have sent messages.
8/7/17 (10:00 a.m.) THE STUDIO WILL BE CLOSED FOR THIS WEEK & POSSIBLY THE FOLOWING WEEK. (The 4-5 remaining W.S. Community Ed. classes are the only classes that will continue since they are on a time schedule). As some of you, who attended class last week, already know I sprained two ankles in a fall. Having the two sprained makes it extremely difficult to get around. I want to give the ankles the best chance at recovery and to do that I need to focus on keeping my legs elevated and do as little standing as possible. Please keep checking the web sites NEWS page as I will be posting info. on how things are going. Think of this as my taking a summer vacation and continue to do some yoga stretching to keep your body limber, until you return. I will miss all your smiling faces terribly. All of you are the best.
Monday night's Learn Meditation has been taken off the schedule for now due to lack of participation.
