I will be hosting a 10 am VIRTUAL Mindful Movement and Meditation class on Sunday mornings for Shanti Yoga Center. You can book the class through their glofox app, or message either me or the staff at Shanti, and we can get you set up!

Classes are held via Zoom.
First Class is Free! check out www.shantiyoga.center for more info.

Class Description: Mindful Movement and Meditation
This class focuses on deepening awareness through movement, meditation, and breath work. Movement practices will focus on deconstructing the bio-mechanics of postures and finding individual adaptations. Breathing is an important part of a physical practice, and focusing on the breath can change the way we move. Meditation practices will be guided, with periods of quiet contemplation. This class encourages active inquiry, curiosity, and growth of personal practice. Previous experience with yoga asana and meditation is helpful but not essential. (OPEN LEVEL) 60 minutes

I love the work I do at Shanti! It's not headstands all the time, but getting to share space with Celeste and Jessie was a real treat after so many weeks away. 🙃

Our featured pose today is Sirsasana or headstand. Flip your perspective. Change your way of thinking. This powerful pose helps improve circulation, stimulates the lymphatic system, clears blocked sinuses and lungs and builds core strength. Sirsasana is an advanced yoga pose and should be learned and practiced with a teacher first as to maintain integrity in the body and breath. When you are looking for a late afternoon energy boost, this inversion will do the trick! Our teachers Brook and Celeste practice physical distancing and share this fun and challenging pose. #featuredpose #deeperpractice #yoga #changeyourmindset

Donation-based class:
One of our 2020 goals is to offer one donation-based class per month, with each month's donation benefiting a different local nonprofit. We will kick off that initiative this Sunday at 5:30 pm during our regularly scheduled Vinyasa Flow class. All donations collected will go to The Beautiful Mind Project, a local nonprofit providing urgent care services for mental health. Our suggested donation is $5, but you are free to give what you are able. Advanced registration is encouraged but not required. https://www.shantiyoga.center/book-a-class

With the weather threatening, many studios are canceling classes, but you can still join a class with Brook this weekend from home. It is also absolutely free!

Log on at 5:00 pm on Sunday's for a whole body practice that also works with breath and meditation.

This week we will focus on building a little heat to fight the cold, and finding some space to rest.

Class is suitable for all ages, bodies and levels of practice, whether you're a new beginner, or practioner for decades.

Stay warm inside, and let's play! You might be surprised at how nice it is to practice at home with your teacher. ❤

Live online classes every Sunday from 5-6:30pm!
If you have never tried yoga and have wanted to, or tried before and felt disheartened; this is a great opportunity to be met where you are. In the comfort of your own home, but without losing the guidance of a teacher.

A typical class includes combining breath with simple movements of various intensity. Class ends with a guided meditation of some kind. We also play with breath work, props, and individual adaptation to create long term practice. Classes are open to all, for free. I hope you will join me when you are able. All online classes are hosted on Zoom at this link: https://zoom.us/j/944736910

Please feel free to message with any questions.
I can also offer private sessions in-person or online to deal with specific concerns or provide more one on one support.

If you read this far: I thank you greatly for your support and hope you enjoy my offerings. Let me know if I can do anything more to improve.
Please leave a comment/like below or share class posts to help spread the word! It really does help.

Did you set some goals for the New Year, or feel like you want something more for yourself in this new decade?
Yoga practice can be a great way to improve mental and physical health as well as creating a space for changes in your lifestyle.
We will be combining simple movements with breath and ending with a beginner friendly meditation.

Holiday: Don’t hurry. Don’t wait. Finding presence in intensity.

Sharing the words of my wonderful teacher. She has included a practice in the newsletter. If you're seeking something in this new year, I recommend giving this a read!

I couldn’t tell you how many times I think - or am told by marketing people - that I should spend more time generating newsletters. It never happens. I’ve a deep seated aversion to writing for sales. I think it’s a misuse of writing.

A great visual reminder to give more ethical gifts!
Here's a few fun ideas I've enjoyed giving or recieveing:

- I wouldn't say events or member ships is the "most ethical". But time is maybe.

- Find a used copy of one of your favorite books to give and share.

-Cuttings of plants, herbs, preserved veggies/fruits or seeds from the garden

-Make a tasty homemade treat to gift. (Avoid plastic bags, try for creative wrapping!)

-2 words: Homemade Cards. Just a pen and paper at the minimum, but possibilites are endless. And so is the love.

- Shop local and/or small businesses that you want to support and share

-Anything at all that comes from the heart. Even if all you can manage is your time spent together or a phone call. That IS enough.
