To love a place is not enough. We must find ways to heal it.

Hi Everyone,

I am realizing that I missed last week’s Newsletter completely, and I’m sorry about that! I have been dealing with some low energy, which means that it’s not just the newsletter, I’m just behind on life right now. Or maybe I should say more behind than usual!

It looks to be cold on Wednesday, and it seems this trend will continue, which means we’ll be switching over to an online format. I’m going to take at least this Wednesday off and aim to regroup by next week. To this end, if you are interested in Wednesday morning classes please reach out and let me know if you prefer the 7:45am time, or the 8:15am time. Thank You!

If you are craving a Yin practice, this Thursday’s Root River class will be Yin Yoga. Everyone is welcome follow the link below to sign up, get a hold of me or Amanda of Root River with any problems. You’re also welcome to stay online afterwards for a quick virtual coffee/tea socialization time.

See you on the mat!

Tips for Practicing At Home

Clovis never could resist an outstretched hand. R.I.P.
  • Create a space for yourself, but don’t get bogged down in creating a perfect space for yourself.
  • Put your class on the calendar. Make space in your day.
  • Make it special for yourself. Maybe this means putting on your favorite fancy yoga pants, maybe this means you finally get to practice in your pjs.
  • Reach out to me if you get stuck.

Class Schedule and News for Week of Sept 13th

Do you already know that your existence—who and how you are—is in and of itself a contribution to the people and place around you?…And that the people around you, and the place(s), have contributions as well? Do you understand your quality of life and your survival are tied to how authentic and generous the connections are between you and the people and place you live with and in?

― Adrienne Maree Brown, Emergent Strategy: Shaping Change, Changing Worlds

Things to know about Yoga with Friends Outside:

  • It’s getting chilly, dress in layers, maybe bring a cap for your head and a blanket for under the mat… and maybe an extra one for over you during savanna.
  • If you have trouble hearing please set up close (but still 6 ft away) to me.
  • Wear a mask for socializing before and after class. Remember to social distance.
  • Bring your mat and a block or a blanket if you have them.

Newsletter for Weeks of Sept. 7th

Every living thing has its own creation song, its own language, and its own language, and its own story. In order to live harmoniously with the rest of creation, we must be willing to listen to and respect all of the harmonies that are moving around us.”

Hello Everyone!

We have a new video from last Friday’s practice, and a full week of yoga to look forward to!

Root River Yogis — and anyone else who’s interested — remember this Thursday morning is our special Love Your Legs practice. You’ll want a tennis ball, body roller, or rolling pin for miofascial release. If you’re not already signed up for Root River classes, you’ll find a link to do that below.

I’m hoping the rain holds off so we can practice together on Wednesday morning at Sinclair.

If you’re planning on attending classes at Infinity Yoga, be sure to let me know and I’ll reserve your space.

Things to know about Yoga with Friends Outside:

  • If you have trouble hearing please set up close (but still 6 ft away) to me.
  • Please be respectful and stay 6′ away from each other to ensure everyone who comes is safe and feels comfortable.
  • I’ll wear a mask as we’re setting up so if you want to come ask questions, tell me things, etc., you’ll be safe.
  • I’m going to take my mask off to teach so you can hear me and we can record sound, but I will stay on my mat and not walk around making adjustments.
  • If you are nervous to be around folks but really want to come, please come, wear a mask and set up away from folks. We will lovingly stay away and give you space.
  • Regular outdoor considerations to think of: You may want sun screen, bug spray, sun glasses, and a towel if it’s dewy.
  • Bring your mat and a block or a blanket if you have them.
