Journal Post

We are all feeling the pain of being apart right now, even though many of us are blessed with the ability to teach and participate in our classes online. It is a very different world and it looks like it has the potential to remain in this evolved state into the foreseeable future. I don’t have a crystal ball but I do not think we are going back to where we were. The yoga studio where I teach has already decided that we will be online at least through the end of August. It is certainly unsettling AND it is giving us an opportunity to change, to innovate, and to get out of a rut.
Dear Friends, As the sun shifts into Virgo and the late summer's earth element, we are enjoying the fruits of our labors along with the slowing & cooling down of summer. The earth element brings us stability and a space to pause and collect ourselves between the seasons. The calm and steadiness of earth helps prepare us for the shifting unsteadiness of the air element which visits us in the fall. I love this time of year! The weather is a perfect mix of warm days and cool nights.  AND September is National Yoga Month! This is a wonderful time of year to get the word out about the benefits of yoga. Reference our resources below on the benefits of yoga as a place to start your conversation with new students.

February 15 and 16 at the Charlottesville Municipal Arts Center Friday February 15: Exploration of the Shoulder The shoulder is not only an important joint in the body, but it is also an important symbol of our strength and our ability to succeed in the world. We will explore the basic principles of the "rotator cuff" through a presentation of basic anatomy and kinesiology of the shoulder. Then we will experience and practice poses that open and strengthen the shoulder joint. The afternoon builds on the morning but with an emphasis on a quiet practice and restorative poses that release the shoulder.
