REMINDER!

Given that we have moved to a zoom/hybrid model in order to keep things straight I ask that you send a text if you will be attending a class or canceling.  It helps me know how to set up the room. This small step will be a great help.  FYI: I usually check about an hour before a class if anyone has registered. Thank you for your cooperation.

8/28/21 – Please mark your calendars!

Sept. 10th (Fri.) at 6:30 pm till 8:00 pm there will be a Yoga Nidra (yoga sleep) presentation. Details to follow.  Only 8 spaces will be available.  You must call to reserve your spot.  There has to be at least 5 people attending in order for class to run.          **CANCELED**

All classes are canceled for Sat. Sept. 11th. (Take time to remember where you were 20 years ago and say a prayer for all those who lost their lives that day and for the surviving family members.)

The 6:00 pm Tues. Beginner class is canceled for Sept. 21 – this day only.

If anyone is interested in seeing the movie “The Chosen” which has been free on U-tube for 2 Seasons around the world –  St. John XXIII Parish on Harlem and Arcade will be showing the 1st season 7 Mon. Nights – Sept. 20th – Nov. 1st with 1 Tues Night Nov.9th.   This series has been critically acclaimed – Rated: 9.6 stars out of 10.   No charge.

The Tues. Nov. 9th Beginner class will be held at 5:00 pm instead of 6:00 pm.  This night only.

Hybrid classes!

Our 1st hybrid class was June 24. All were pleased with the results. My plan is to have all the zoom classes still in operation but those who wish to come in to the studio will be able to do so. The zoom and the in-person will be at the same time.  If you like to use props please bring them in, there will be no extra pads to put under your mats and no blankets or pillows.  Hope to see you soon on the zoom or in person. If you have any questions on how this works, feel free to contact me.

All restrictions have been lifted.

We do not have to be 6 ft. apart, which means we are able to have a few more yogi’s in the room.  It would be helpful to all if you are vaccinated.  (If not vaccinated it would be a good idea to bring a mask to protect yourself).  FYI-We will be sanitizing the floors after each class, if the bathroom is used it will also be sanitized for your protection. Hand sanitizer will be located in several places.

What to bring to an in-person class.

Since many of the props that were provided before covid-19 will no longer be available.  So consider bringing your own little pillow, a large towel or a throw blanket, block(s), & strap. If you have tender knees you might consider a pad (garden).

Did you see the PBS special on Improving Memory?

These were 6 Memory Boosters mentioned on the show I thought to pass on.   1)Pay attention (mindfullness), 2) Movement – even if only 10 min. a day, 3) Sleep 7-9 hrs. a day,  4) Joy conditioning – focus on the joyful times not the sad times, 5) Meditation start with 5 min. a day, and 6) Life-long learning – study a new language, learn to play an instrument, read or listen to Audio books.

We exercise the body, but we need to exercise the brain too. The show also emphasized doing Brain Games either on the computer or phone.

2021 – Any In-Person class please read reminder.

This is a REMINDER: If you will be attending an IN-PERSON class in the future you will have to call to register and to find out if there is room in the class.  Also if you have any cold or flu like symptoms you will not be able to attend the class.  If you were visiting anyone who had Covid-19 or if you have had Covid yourself you can not attend for at least 10 days to protect other students. Please bring as few items as possible to class.  FYI: The studio has New Heppa filters  and is sanitized after every class.   As always if you have any questions please feel free to call.
