Dear Friend,

Beginnings, like endings, can be difficult or exciting. Atha is the very first word in the Yoga Sutras and is considered an auspicious way to begin. Whenever we make an important decision, the universe will often energetically support us. Atha here means beginning the study of who we are, where we are, and how we can make changes. INCREMENTAL changes to our inner and outer self in order to be less involved with attachments. Learning, practicing and integrating the various aspects of Yoga happens over a long period of time and requires patience and perseverance. This is a lifestyle designed to develop and refine our body, mind and heart, our thoughts words and actions. As Steve Jobs once said “The Journey is the reward.”   - From The Path of the Yoga Sutras

Wishing many beautiful blessings for you and your family in 2018!
Mary Ann
January Class Schedule
YOGA JOURNEY Mondays 6-7:30pm; Wednesdays & Fridays 9:15-10:30am
EVOLUTION YOGA Saturdays, 9:15-10:30am & 10:45am-12:00pm (Yin)
Featured Pose
Plow Pose (Halasana): Plow is great to stretch the whole back, from the sacrum all the way up to the shoulders. From Shoulder Stand, slowly lower your legs down behind your head. They may not reach the floor and that is fine. If your feet touch the floor, interlace your fingers and bring your elbows together. If they do not, just keep your hands at your lower back or arms straight behind you for support. Gaze at your navel, go within and take five soothing, calming breaths. Keep your head neutral, do not look side to side. Walk your shoulder blades in toward each other. Press your quadriceps toward the sky.
