i am starting my second annual 'yoga in the park' and wanted to extend an invitation to you to join me!!
our first outdoor yoga adventure will happen this coming sunday, may 22nd 10-11am.
i am hoping to meet at least twice a month for the rest of the summer (or until it gets too cold outside!). if it IS RAINING then class will be canceled. if there is a CHANCE OF RAIN class will still be on until we get rained out. :)
yoga in the park this summer will be held in the beautiful jack roberts park on the corner of madigan ave and leonard st in the first ward of morgantown. (pics are of actual location.) there is plenty of parking - in the parking lot & also free street parking. there is a playground so if you have kids they can play while you play. :)
these all-levels classes are FREE to all. donations are appreciated but never required.
please bring your mat (or towel if you don't have a mat) some water and anything else you need. be sure to pass this email along to your friends and family - the more the merrier!!
and yes, you will receive my signature neck massage during your savasana!!! :)
if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. i hope to see you on sunday!
yesterday my body screeched to a halt. i knew that at around noon when i wasn't out of bed (and wasn't planning to leave my bed) that i needed to make a decision that i didn't want to make.
i cancelled my yoga class & my clients.
i. hate. doing. that.
but i knew, it was for the best. for days on end (and yes, weeks on end as well) i've been pushing my body & pushing and i knew that eventually she was going to push back. yesterday was the day.
so aside from feeling like crap, i laid around, enjoying the comforts of my bed - with pets joining in on the bed day as well. i've written about having bed days before, but this one was very different as i wasn't feeling well at all.
nonetheless, rest was exactly what my neglected body needed. and that is what she got.
i continued to stay in bed until just now (yep, am writing this from bed). i've gotta pull myself up now and get ready to go give a bowenwork session. and then i'm onto lakeview resort & spa for the monongalia county child advocacy center's "girls' night out" event.
if you are local you should come. indulge yourself on some chair massage, bowenwork, reiki, yoga, meditation & much more. and it's all for a good cause. not to mention good karma!!
a wise woman, who was traveling in the mountains, found a precious stone in a stream.
she reverently placed the gem in her bag.
the next day, she met another traveler, who was hungry.
the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. the hungry traveler saw the precious stone in the wise woman's bag, admired it, and asked the wise woman to give it to him. the wise woman did so without hesitation.
the traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune.
he knew the jewel was worth enough to give him security for the rest of his life.
but a few days later he came back, searching for the wise woman.
when he found her, he returned the stone and said, "i have been thinking. i know how valuable the stone is, but i would like to exchange it in the hope that you can give me something much more precious. if you can, teach me the secrets about the power you have within you, the power that enabled you to, without hesitation, give me this precious stone."

i can't get enough of this. as you all know, i love quotes (hello monday moments of zen!!) :) i always share a quote as students are rousing from savasana and lately i have been sharing this. i hope you all enjoyed as much as my yogi(ni)s do.
"there comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama and the people who create it, and surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard you forget the bad, and focus solely on the good. after all, life is too short to be anything but happy." ~ karl marx
