An overdo Update!

Namaste' Yogis!
Well, March 30th has come and gone as has the month of April, here we are May 3rd! Our unprecedented public health crisis still looms. Governor Cooper has outlined 3 phases to begin to lift the "Stay at Home" order which is subject to change.   I honor his conservative, safe approach.  The Yoga Studio will remain closed at least through the month of May and we will revisit the situation at that time.  My proclamation has always been that the studio "belongs" to the dedicated yogis who attend classes there.  "It is your studio". With that in mind, we would love to hear thoughts and suggestions and what the "new" face of the studio might look like for you to feel safe to attend a class when the time is appropriate.  We have heard from a few of you, thank you!  Your individual responses will be held in confidence but I will post an outline of suggestions and together we will maintain our energetic, healing yoga community.
May you be Happy
May you be Healthy
May you be Secure
May you live in Peace and
May you awaken in the light of your true nature,
Hari Om Shanti, Hari Om Peace

Temporary Studio Closing

After serious consideration of the current public health situation, we have come to the conclusion it is in the best interest of our yoga community to close the studio temporarily.
The studio will close Saturday, March 14th through Monday, March 30th

This is an opportunity to explore your home practice! May you find solace in this mantra.

Mangala mantra: 
Om svasti prajābhyaḥ paripālayantām 
nyāyena mārgeṇa mahīṃ mahīśāḥ
go-brāhmaṇebhyaś śubham astu nityam 
lokās samastā sukhino bhavantu
Om shanti shanti shanti
May you be well and protected.
May the leaders of this land make wise decisions. 
May the earth be abundant for those who know the land as sacred. 
May all beings, without exception, know ease. 
Peace, peace, peace. 
Please don't hesitate to keep in touch through email/txt

How are your shoulders?

First and foremost, so many have reached out with good wishes, I humbly thank you for the love, support, and concern for the welfare of my shoulders!  I appreciate the kindness more than words can say!

It is with uncharacteristic fashion that I share publically about my personal life..but the cat's out of the bag so here is the update as promised!

After a second orthopedic opinion, given the multiple issues, the recommendation is to have surgery on both shoulders to "fix" them
"come back when you can no longer tolerate the pain and limited mobility, they won't get better on their own."

My take... time, patience, yoga, physical therapy, and LOVE will tell!

Meanwhile, it is business as usual at The Yoga Studio! I look forward to seeing each of you soon!


It's a New Year!
