Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you, and have a wonderful week! XOXO

Newsletter for week of Oct 7th

Sometimes I wish I could photosynthesize so that just by being, just by shimmering at the meadow’s edge or floating lazily on a pond, I could be doing the work of the world while standing silent in the sun.~Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants.
A man and his little white dog walking down a road that winds through the valley ahead of him.

Hello Friends,

This week I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with some old friends and much of our conversations centered around being present in nature. I visited one friend’s garden that she’s tended over the past several decades by sitting quietly with each new plant and listening to where it wanted to be planted. The result is a marvelous cultivated wildness.

Another friend told me of how he rediscovers his favorite trails by hiking them with his children. How he’s trying to relearn as an adult the kind of curiosity and presence he witnesses in the young.

Meanwhile Brett, Lulu and I have been taking our evening walks on our road. Our usual route, in my mind, is a practical one, dictated by avoiding a Shepard that brings out the worst in Lulu while remaining close enough to home that we don’t have to drive anywhere. Last night Brett revealed its his favorite walk and I found myself appreciating the valley where we live even more than usual.

I hope that you are having experiences that open up the world around you in beautiful ways. I hope that you find unexpected doorways into curiosity and even joy.

Much love,

Elle

This is just a quick note to say hello, and assure you nothing has changed for our schedule this upcoming week. If you have a space reserved to practice in person at Yarnology, that reservation will continue on for October.

Still no news of when the studio will be ready for us, but whenever I feel frustrated by that fact, I remember how lucky we are to have a nurturing community around us willing and able to create space for us.

I hope you are getting out to enjoy this beautiful weather and I will see many of you tomorrow!

Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn–that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness–that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.
~Jane Austen, Persuasion

Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald 

Hello Friends,

Just a quick reminder that we are on Zoom only tomorrow (Friday) as Yarnology is preparing for an online event and needs the space. If by any chance you are interested in an online yarn store crawl let me know and I will make sure you have access. Though I’m guessing most of  you have already spent far more time in a yarn store than you ever imagined you would!

I noticed some good beginner size needles in the shop so if any of you are interested in learning to knit let me know and we can plan a knitting hang out for after class. I heard from Heather this week and there is still no news of when we’ll be back in our studio. So we have plenty of time in our cozy shop.

Much love,

Elle

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline
Tree in fall colors artistically drawn, the leaves are droplet shaped and have smiles and musical notes on them.

Hi!

I hope you all have had a glorious week since the last time we practiced! As many of you know, I had family in town, and it was the best kind of visit. Laughter was the norm at mealtimes, as I reconnected with cousins who feel more like a sister and a nephew. I learned distant relatives of mine are buried at Woodlawn, and even saw the graves. And much of this was possible because things went wrong in the most delightful way. Meaning as my family pulled into town their car started making funny noises, which turned out to be an easy, inexpensive fix at Ace Auto, but gave us an unexpected extra day together.

Somewhere in all the busy-ness of the week, I haven’t written a newsletter until now! And the thing is I’m quite enjoying writing to you all as I drink my coffee and wait for it to be time to teach a Root River Zoom class, so I think I’m going to switch the Newsletter days to Thursdays for a bit to see how it goes. I think this will still give you all the important news and help me reclaim yet more of my weekend.

Other than this wild Newsletter day change, I don’t have much new to share. I stopped into the studio yesterday and the floor was still torn up and the office let me know workmen hadn’t been in for weeks. In general the timing is very uncertain. We will get back into our studio eventually but for now we are at Yarnology and on Zoom. This means, of course, we have smaller class sizes, so please be in touch with me if you are hoping to practicing in person.

Much love,

Elle

“One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.”
Krishnamurti 
drawn image of woman in color in a cobra pose. The captain says, "love yourself"

Hello Everyone,

As many of you know Yarnology has been dealing with some painting fumes from the building next door which shares some of the duct work. It was bad enough that I worked from home! Even “normal” people got headaches. The good news is that it’s improving quickly. Monday’s class is still a Zoom-only class, but my expectation is that by Friday we will be back in Yarnology practicing yoga among the skeins.

I am taking Labor Day off, as I have cousins in town. Linda is the kind of cousin that both my sister and I describe as the sister we’ve always wanted. Mostly we do this because it’s funny to see the reactions of the people around us, but still it speaks to how close we are. Jay, her son, is also amazing. I haven’t seen them in person for a few years and I plan on eating up every minute with them!

This Wednesday morning is our last outdoor class for the season, and the forecast — as of right now — is predicting sun!

Thank you so much for all your flexibility this week. You are amazing!

Much love,

Elle

Thinking Through Fall Schedule

“The month of August had turned into a griddle where the days just lay there and sizzled.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees 
Artistically drawn trees on in Summer and one in Autumn

Hello Everyone,

I have been giving a lot of careful thought to our fall schedule. As some of you know by now I have realized I need a little more time and energy to devote to some personal projects and my own practice. Taking a break from classes is not an easy decision for me, as I love practicing with you all, and many of you have been a huge support to me personally, and I hate to let you down. However, the good part about teaching many times a week is if I drop one class there are others you can attend.

Regular Root River Yogis, have likely already heard I’m taking a break from my Wednesday evening classes. I will, of course, still be teaching Thursday morning and the recordings of those classes will be available. For those few of you who can’t make morning classes, I will miss you. However, I know there are many other amazing evening Root River Classes so I trust your practice won’t be interrupted. I am still here if you have any questions or there’s anything I can do for you.

I am also going to take a break from my Wednesday classes in Winona once our outdoor classes come to an end on Sept. 1st. As you likely remember we had planned to move this class indoors at Infinity. With our local Covid cases up, air quality and time for the studio to air out in-between classes is once again an issue at Infinity Studio, making our Wednesday morning time slot unavailable. I am not closing this door permanently, I know there could be other options for practice. But for right now, I’m going to take a needed break. I apologize for the turn around.

Monday /Friday classes, please continue to register with me, if you want to practice in person. We are still practicing at Yarnology and the space is limited. Also for those of you showing up early to help me move all the displays out of the way, don’t worry about tomorrow, I moved them before I left last night so we’re all set to go!

Thank you all for your support and understanding.

So much love,

Elle

Cat walking in tall grass.

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?

Hello and Happy Sunday!

I heard from Heather last week that our studio was projected to be ready for us in 2-4 weeks. So for now we have Zoom and limited spaces at Yarnology.

For those of you looking for outdoor options I’ll be teaching at WHS on Wednesday mornings through Sept. 1st.

News for week of August 9th

“How Superheroes Make Money:
– Spider-Man knits sweaters.
– Superman screw the lids on pickle jars.
– Iron Man, as you would suspect, just irons.”
Jim Benton

cartoon of lamb doing the tree pose.

Hi Everyone,

One of my interview questions when I applied at Yarnology was, “what is your superpower”? To be honest I don’t remember my answer, but I do remember what an interesting question it was.

What I love about the quote above is the juxtaposition of super powers with seemingly banal tasks. Well, ok, knitting is amazing. But ironing and tightening jars are certainly not usually seen as part of the hero’s journey. For me, and I suspect many others, the every day, seemingly small tasks are actually the hardest.

All of this is my way of saying I’m inspired by your persistence and dedication, to showing up for your own practice every week, but also to coming together as a group. There are many options for yoga in our community, especially if you include online options!  You are truly super heroes.

The lamb in tree pose is meant to signal that we’ll still be meeting at Yarnology this Friday. Please let me know if you’re planning on attending, especially if you plan to attend in person. Even though I feel good about the air quality at Yarnology, I’m mindful of needing to give everyone their room to breathe.

xoxo

News of Infinity Studio and Upcoming Yoga Schedule

“The doing and the daring are the magic keys to unlocking the treasure chest.”
― Reba Linker, Follow the Yarn: The Knitting Wit & Wisdom of Ann Sokolowski

 

Dear friends,

Thank you so much for your support and willingness to go with the flow this past week. You’re all inspiring and I’m so grateful to know you.

As most of you know by now, the Infinity Yoga Studio is momentarily closed due to water damage. I heard from Heather and “it is looking like it will be more complicated than anticipated,” meaning it could be weeks rather than days before we are able to return to Infinity Yoga Studio. I am feeling some sadness for our floor that will be replaced, but I am reminded that our yoga community isn’t dependent on a studio or even props, but rather our group persistently practicing together.

For the time being we will continue to practice at Yarnology on Monday and Friday mornings. If you are craving outdoor practices, keep in mind that Wednesday classes are at the High School at 8:15am. No registration needed for Wednesday classes; please continue registering for Mon/Fri classes. Zoom is also an option for Monday/Friday classes.

Next Monday, August 9th, I’m unavailable and had lined up a sub. However, this has gotten decidedly more complicated, so as of right now, we’re going to take that day off. I will let you know if anything changes.

Lastly, I know many of you are facing obstacles to your practice right now. Please let me know if there’s anything more I can do to support you.

much love,

~Elle

"“I love how summer just wraps it’s arms around you like a warm blanket.” ― Kellie Elmore

Hello Friends!

I come to your inbox bearing good news! I’ve communicated with Heather and beginning this fall, our Wednesday class will be moving indoors to Infinity Yoga Studio, assuming that the risk of gathering together indoors continues to be low. I don’t know yet if I will have a choice between the start times of 7:45am or 8:15am, but I am interested in hearing from you if you have a preference. Also,  Sara has confirmed that the 20-class cards have been re-instated at their original price of $140.

I also want to thank all of you who have been showing up Wednesdays and contributing cash to Our Voices. This organization was started by a mother to support BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) students in Winona. I’m so grateful to be in a solid enough place this summer that I can give back to our community, and that is 100% due to you and all of your support this past year.

I also hope the donation model allows for students who couldn’t otherwise afford studio fees to attend. I also hope that the outdoor classes provide a fun, less intimidating atmosphere. Please invite friends and family — drop ins are totally welcome.

See you on the mat soon!

“Nature” is what we see—
The Hill—the Afternoon—
Squirrel—Eclipse—the Bumble bee—
Nay—Nature is Heaven—
Nature is what we hear—
The Bobolink—the Sea—
Thunder—the Cricket—
Nay—Nature is Harmony—
Nature is what we know—
Yet have no art to say—
So impotent Our Wisdom is
To her Simplicity.

Yoga with Elle News for weeks of June 14th & June 21

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down
into the grass, how to kneel in the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields
which is what I have been doing all day.
~ Mary Oliver, The Summer Day

Hi Everyone,

If you haven’t heard yet, I’m visiting my sister and her family this next week and I’ll be taking a break in teaching classes while I’m out of town. Thank you Kärin for subbing Root River classes and Gretchen Mulkey for subbing Infinity classes! Though I’ll miss you all, I know you’ll be in great hands with these two!

There will be no Zoom Infinity option for Friday the 18th or Monday the 21st. There is still room in these classes to attend in person. Wednesday classes will resume outside at WHS on the 3oth. Information about all of this is below.

Please contact me if you have any questions or if you want to register for in-person classes.

See many of you tomorrow!

Hello Everyone,

Hopefully word got to everyone and you have reregistered for any Zoom classes your want to take. If not, the links are below and will be there for you anytime if you decide at the last minute you want to take a class.

Also the long-awaited link to register for Community Ed outdoor classes is below. If you have friends you want to bring, it’s ok for them to drop in as our guest. If you can, please let me know ahead of time if they are new to yoga in general, or if you invited them because there was something specific you thought would benefit them. Thank you!

If the Zoom links aren’t working or you have any other questions for me, let me know. Below is (I think) all the information you need as well as this week’s schedule.

Yoga with Elle News for May 30th: dates to keep in mind

…Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them.
~ L.M. Montgomer, Anne of Green Gables

Looks like a bunch of different stickers for daily planner, but not organized yet.

Hi,

I hope you’re having a relaxing weekend! And just as a reminder, we don’t have class this Memorial Day. Sleep in, go for a walk, and if you feel inspired to practice, feel free to make use of any of the videos on the site.

There’s a lot to let you know about this week, so bear with me. First, for Root River Yogis, if you haven’t registered for Summer session and plan on doing so, make sure to get that in as soon as possible. Thank You!

Secondly, I am looking forward to visiting my family in June. We haven’t seen each other in well over a year! For those of you practicing with me over Zoom through Infinity or attending Wednesday morning classes, this means we will have a little interruption in our practice. Below you’ll see the dates we don’t have Zoom classes; all other classes will continue.

Many of us have been looking forward to Wednesday morning outdoor classes, and you can find information below. The link to register isn’t live quite yet, but you’ll have it the moment I do!

Thank you for your ongoing flexibility and support. I look forward to a fun summer with you all!

xoxo

Live isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
~ Vivian Greene

 

Hi Everyone,

I usually try to find quotes that aren’t quite as popular as this one so that you have a little variety when you open these newsletters, but this one seemed too perfect for my mood this morning not to share. Not only is it drizzling as I write this, but the sentiment speaks to how I see my practice. That I’m not avoiding the rain, but keeping myself strong enough that I can see rain for what it is. I might not think I like it, but I can thrive/dance/find joy in it nonetheless.

I wanted to give everyone a heads up that we won’t have class on May 31st, which is over Memorial Day weekend. If you are yearning to practice please feel free to make use of the videos here on yogaelle.com. I hope you have a great day off!

For those of you looking forward to practicing outside this summer we have a firm start date of June 23rd at 8:15am at Winona Senior High School. There will be more information in next week’s newsletter, including how to register through community ed, and a reminder of how all of that will work.

Let me know if you’re interested in practicing in person at Infinity on Monday or Friday. In alignment with the CDC’s recommendations, if you’re fully vaccinated you can practice without a mask.

The land knows you, even when you are lost.”
~Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants

Hi Everyone,

The loosening of restrictions is on my mind, especially concerning our in-person practices. When I reached out to Heather, she let me know that she plans to make an announcement for Infinity and has asked that we run things as we usually do until then. I am hopeful I will know more soon and will keep you in the loop.

I’m wondering about your thoughts and feelings on this. Are you comfortable with practicing in a room where the vaccinated among us were unmasked? Would you feel comfortable bumping the class sizes back up to 8 like we had last summer? I just ask this last question because I suspect if we could practice without masks a few of our Zoom yogis might want to join us. If you haven’t already, please let me know your thoughts.

If you are enjoying Zoom, don’t worry this will continue being an option.

Lastly a student reached out after Friday’s class letting me know my energy seemed stressed and wondering if it was them. I want to ensure you all that my distraction had everything to do with a lack of sleep and an uncertain situation, and had nothing to do with any of you. I sincerely hope my distraction didn’t negatively affect anyone else’s practice, and as always thank you so much for your patience and support. You are truly the best!

xoxo

May-Flower
by Emily Dickinson

Pink, small, and punctual,
Aromatic, low,
Covert in April,
Candid in May,

Dear to the moss,
Known by the knoll,
Next to the robin,
In every human soul.

Bold little beauty,
Bedecked with thee,
Nature forswears
Antiquity.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to everyone for confirming when they were in class, I think I am caught up and kind of know what’s going on… we’ll see!

I have been enjoying the lighthearted feel of the classes, both in person and Wednesdays on Zoom. I think we must all be feeling a bit lighter with so much sunshine. And slowly I think most of us are able to reconnect with our families, which has to make us feel a bit better!

Speaking of families, I’m thinking of you on Mother’s Day. I hope that you all find a way to honor the feminine in yourselves as well as others today.

Much Love,

~Elle

Hello friends,

Just a quick reminder to let me know if you are planning on attending in person at Infinity. We still have a limited capacity, and I would hate to have to turn anyone away at the door. It also just helps us figure out how to arrange ourselves in the room. Thank You!

As always please let me know if there’s anything I can do for you, or if you have any questions.

Hello friends,

Just a short note to let you know Root River is hosting a free week of Zoom Yoga classes for new students May 31st-June 4th. If you know anyone who could benefit from Zoom yoga classes please let them know about it. And for Infinity students, if  you’re interested in trying out Zoom classes taught by someone besides me this is a great opportunity to meet some new teachers.

As always I’m humbled by your continued support and dedication to our practice together.

See you on the mat soon!

The lovely flowers embarrass me. They make me regret I am not a bee.
–Emily Dickinson

Hello friends,

For those of you waiting for news of outdoor classes this summer, I met with Linda Jacobs last Friday and checked out the outdoor spaces at the high school and I think they will work for us! Meeting at the high school will have the added advantage of an indoor space for when it’s raining. While the final details are still being worked out, here’s what we know for sure:

  • We’d begin after school let out for the summer on June 16th.
  • Start time is yet to be determined and will depend in part on the schedule of summer school. As always, let me know if you have strong opinions and I will do my best to serve your needs.
  • Payment:
    • If I still owe you classes or we have a trade arrangement, this stands and you won’t owe anything additional.
    • For everyone else:
      • Small registration fee through community services. I’ll get you the info when I have it. Scholarships available.
      • Onsite donations for Our Voices, a locally run organization supporting BIPOC high school students.

See you on the mat soon!
