Thinking Through Fall Schedule

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,
