Aug 24th Newsletter and New Meditation

Earth, my likeness,
Though you look so impassive, ample and spheric there,
I now suspect that is not all;
I now suspect there is something fierce in you eligible to burst forth…

Walt Whitman

Hello Everyone!

I’ve really been feeling the earth energy this week and enjoying our practices outside so much! We have continued to record them even though unlike the videos we record at home where I’m practicing right along with you and leading I am switching back and forth between demoing and sitting up and cuing so even the students furthest away can hear me. So if you make use of them either now or over the winter—when we are hungry for some sun and green grass—just know this will be the case.

I’ve also included a recorded version of the Hug the Earth meditation I sometimes lead at the end of class. Even though it’s cued as if you’re laying on the earth belly down, I promise the images work no matter how your body is supported.

No word yet on when online payment or online registration will be set up. For September, you can continue to register with me and pay by calling Infinity or visiting their office. If you know which classes you want to attend and it’s less stressful to set it up in advance, you can do so any time. If it’s less stressful for you to think one week at a time, then that’s ok too. If classes fill up, I’ll have waiting lists in case someone lets me know they can’t make it.

So much love and gratitude to you all!

Things to know about Yoga with Elle Outside:

  • Sept 4th is our last Friday outside, after that this class moves to 7:45am at Infinity Yoga Studio.
  • 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.

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.
