News for the week of November 12th

"You're the Best"

Hi there,

Just a quick newsletter to assure you this week’s schedule is happening as usual, even if this reaches you later than it usually does.

I was thinking of you all today when I stopped by Infinity to peek in at our studio. The old floor is completely removed and ready for the new floor to be installed, as well as the other repairs that need to happen. I will let you know as soon as I get the word that work has started, or if I find out more about timing. For now, we’ll be cozily practicing in amongst the skeins (at Yarnology).

Much Love,

Elle

Newsletter for week of November 5th

Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow, a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them– we can only love others as much as we love ourselves.
~Brené Brown

Hi there,

This week I’m thinking a lot about our relationship with our practice, and how we cultivate it. Just like any relationship, there are times when we are in the love bubble. It is pure enjoyment to show up on our mat, we are inspired by our teachers, and we look forward to the brief connections with other students. There are times when we show up because our practice is our lifeline, we need it for our physical or mental health. The price we pay when we don’t show up propels us to our mats. I know my practice certainly deepened during illness, when I needed it more. And admittedly there are times when we show up because we’re committed. We show up because we know that our practice is important to us, and we keep the space for it even when what we really feel like doing is sleeping in. And sometimes we take a break all together, or perhaps our practice shifts.

I invite you to give some thought to your practice and appreciate the effort you’ve brought, and also what your practice has given you.

I also feel it bears spelling out that this isn’t an invite to self criticism. If you haven’t been on the mat lately, please just honor your reasons, you have no judgment from me. Perhaps your practice has shifted, perhaps your attention has been needed elsewhere, perhaps the obstacles (namable or otherwise) have simply been too great and you deserve some compassion.

Much Love,

Elle

Newsletter for Oct. 1st

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Sunlight shining through autumn leaves. Feels bright and hopeful.

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!

Much love,

Elle
