Yoga with Elle News for Week of Nov. 23rd.

November Night

Listen…
With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp’d, break from the trees
And fall.

― Adelaide Crapsey

 

As I write to you this morning, cozy on my couch with Lulu dog curled up next to me and my coziest blanket in my lap, I feel as ready for winter as I’m going to get. The storm windows are in, the new roof was completed, and I believe I’ve solved the issues I was having with recording Zoom classes.

Root River Yogis: We’re practicing Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving! A reminder to sign up for next session and to invite your friends to our free week!

Infinity Yogis: See below for Zoom links to your classes. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are separate classes you need to register for. If you’re feeling confused, reach out, I will make it easy for you!

Everyone: Access to Yoga with Elle videos and Wednesday morning Zoom classes are pay what you can, if you can. If you know people who are struggling and could use some yoga please let them know about this. For those of you who have been able to help support these projects, thank you! Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to make this resource better for you.

Much Love,

Elle

Newsletter Week of Nov. 14th: All classes now available online!

Seek harmony, not balance. Do not cut your life into pieces and measure their worth on a scale. Instead gauge your success by how well you have loved. Let your life sing. Join your song to the Great Symphony that has played long before your birth and will go on sounding after your death.

― Valurie Kaur

This week I got a few messages thanking me for keeping Infinity yoga classes going. You are so welcome, I love you, I love our practice together. I also want to be very clear, your support is essential for keeping our Winona yoga group practicing together. Without your personal engagement I wouldn’t have the energy to keep teaching. Without your financial support I wouldn’t be able to afford to devote so much of my time to keeping this all together. You are amazing. I feel so humbled to know you and practice with you.

For those of you in Root River Yoga, I just committed to another season of yoga with you all! Soon you will receive an email from Amanda letting you know it’s time to register, please do so right away so we can all rest easy that we have the attendance we need to continue!

My Infinity classes are now on Zoom! While the in-person classes are filled, you can safely join us anytime. The Zoom links are in the schedule below. If you have any questions about how this works, reach out, I can help.

And lastly, though not certainly not least, through some editing magic on Brett’s part we managed to record last Wednesday morning’s Zoom class, so there’s a new video for you!

Reach out with anything you need.

Much Love,

Elle

Newsletter for week of Nov. 9th

Action on behalf of life transforms. Because the relationship between self and the world is reciprocal, it is not a question of first getting enlightened or saved and then acting. As we work to heal the earth, the earth heals us.

Hi 🙂

Today I am encouraging my cells to breathe in as much of this sunshine and dreamy warmth as they can. From this place of joy I’m looking forward to how we can best stay connected this winter.

As you know I’ve added a Yoga with Elle Zoom class on Wednesdays morning. Most of you who have been attending aren’t coming to in-person classes right now so it’s been especially sweet to see your faces and feel your presence as we practice.

This week, I’m also experimenting with broadcasting through Zoom whilst teaching classes at Infinity. Hopefully by Friday this is an offering I can provide. For the time being, I’m also limiting the Infinity class to our closed group.

Of course if Infinity needs to close, Infinity classes will go completely online. While I hope this won’t be the case I feel good about knowing we’re ready to switch over any time we need too.

If you’re curious about Infinity’s protocols should one of our community need to quarantine or is diagnosed with Covid, check out Oct. 20th’s Newsletter where I share what I know. If you’re curious about Infinity’s Ionizer air purifier let me know and I will forward the information that Heather sent the teachers.

Below is this week’s schedule. As always, if you have any questions, or if there’s anything else I can do for you, get ahold of me.

Much Love,

Elle

I thought it would take a long time to heal, but everything snapped into focus all at once. I realized that love is revolutionary when we channel it…

Happy Halloween and Full Moon!

Last night, after enjoying a campy horror movie with friends via Plex and Zoom, I looked at the moon through the window and thought back to times in my life where instead of solitary meditations and virtual connection, the full moon inspired gathering around fires and live music. I’m not sad, exactly. In all honesty, my mood and energy levels were matched perfectly with this weekend’s light celebration, but I am mindful of how essential it is for us to connect with our natural world and each other.

Some of you have an invite to a Yoga with Elle contact list via Google Docs. Please add your info if you want to be in contact with the group that practices with me at Infinity Yoga. If you weren’t added and want to be, let me know. If you want to be off of the doc, let me know and I will remove you from sharing.

Look below for opportunities to practice together this week, and to find links to videos and meditations. I’m also offering a Zoom class on Wednesday morning at 7:45am. The link is below, reach out with any questions you have.

See you on the mat!
