Newsletter for week of March 29th

The very least you can do in your life is figure out what you hope for. And the most you can do is live inside that hope. Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof.
–Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

Happy Sunday Friends!

It’s so much easier to live in hope right now than it was a year ago. And I’m so so thankful for that. I’m also, as always, so thankful to all of you. This past year would have been much harder for me without you. And I’m so proud of us that we made it through with our little yoga community intact!

Of course, I am also looking forward to practicing with more of you in person! Root River Yogis, I’m sure Amanda will communicate with us all when she knows how she’s going to proceed. Meanwhile lets keep talking about the possibility of a special outdoor yoga gathering!

For Infinity yogis, as long as we keep within CDC guidelines Heather is leaving it up to teachers how many students teachers allow in their classes. There is still no change in prop policies and we’re all still under the mask mandate.

I feel the time to open the door to more students as well as to fresh air is close! But when I think about the possibility of any one of us being a carrier, I realize I won’t be ready for this April 1st. While more of our community is getting vaccinated, we’re also, as you probably know, dealing with B117, a more infectious strain of covid. With the lack of air exchange in our studio I worry about us being 6 ft apart for an extended period of time.

Please be patient a little while longer. Once more of us are immune, our community numbers are once again going down, and I can open the door while we practice, I will happily welcome as many of you in as the CDC allows! I believe this is only a matter of weeks, not months.

For those of you who are disappointed, I hear you. If you are excited to return, let me know and I will put you on the waiting list. And very soon we will be practicing together again!

For those of you who have found that Zoom is a better option for you don’t worry, I will continue our hybrid class model for the foreseeable future.

So much love,
