Classes, Updates and More
I know I said that I would keep in contact with you all weekly, and I meant it, however I have been struggling, as I am sure many of you are as well. It was getting really hard for me to write an update to all of you, because the answer is I simply do not know. Just as many of us do not know what tomorrow brings.
I am trying my best to be a beacon of white light for you all, by providing our classes the best we can, and I will continue to do so. However I would be lying if I didn't say that I miss all of your faces. I miss the day to day of seeing students practice, and growing within their practice. I hope if and when we reunite in the studio that I can see the growth from your continued commitment at home.
I am reminded of the practice of Non-attachment or Non-Possessiveness also known in Sanskrit as Apriagrha, during this time. I have found a discovery about myself, that I am absolutely attached to my students,and miss them tremendously. We practice this as yogi's because we are divine beings, and spirituality and materialistic things do not coexist, because one is of space and ether, and the other of matter and density. Yet what about people? We are human beings having a spiritual existence right? However we are absolutely, Human beings that thrive off of connection, and thrive off of interacting with one another, because we are social creatures. One of the things most new clients, and students tell us about our studio, is how welcoming you all are, how safe everyone feels amongst one another. We love watching all of you help each other through life's trials and tribulations, as well as your practice. We enjoy the laughs we have shared, the break through both on and off the mats. So it seems so odd to be operating in such a way
We do have a Facebook group where we were posting about classes at first, if you have not yet joined I encourage you to do so by going here -----------> FaceBook Group, so that maybe we can check in with one another during this time, still foster that community, and continue to help one another during these challenging times.
*THERE WILL BE NO CLASS EMAILED ON SUNDAY 4/12/2020 IN OBSERVANCE OF THE HOLIDAY* Saturday's class will remain up for 48 hours, if you wanted to practice again on Sunday

First Responders, Healthcare Workers
All health care workers, first responders and those on our front lines are able to access unlimited class packages for free, either to use now, or to be used at a later date. If you know any one, please send them the link to our website, and have them fill in their information, and leave in the comments that they are a healthcare worker. This is located where it says to SUBSCRIBE, on our homepage. A link is also provided below. We will then correspond with them, giving them the appropriate package and set up. It is the least we can do during this time.

We would be lying if we said that the studio is getting by just fine, as this is simply not the case. Each day our door is closed, is another day we may not be able to reopen. Although we have taken the appropriate measures, and applied for funds we are entitled to as small business, these things are not so black and white, and not exactly guaranteed for everyone.
We have created a donation based gift card option, with a custom amount of anyone's choosing, that can be purchased in our online store, that will go directly to the yoga studio to help pay the bills, rent and utilities, that unfortunately do not stop in our absence. We appreciate anything you may be able to give, and understand there is no obligation if you choose not to. To donate you can go here ---------> Gift Cards
