Schedule for attendance!


I have heard from many of you in response to the blog post (website notice) in regard to the opening of the studio.

Thank you for your supportive suggestions and replies so far but there is more!  Our studio and population are unique and we do not fit the model that other studios are using.  So let’s give this a go with an understanding that things may change!

I have decided the fairest way to “start” this process of reopening is to draw from current/active class pass holders. You know who you are and so far I have heard from about ⅓ of you.  If you have not responded please do so asap.  Let me know either way. I need to know 1. if you are ready to return and 2.your class preference, provide 1st and 2nd choices (see below for options!)

Once I have this information, I will schedule/assign individuals for a class time and do my best to accommodate requests!

I realize this does not immediately allow for those of you that have expressed an interest in returning but do not have a current pass or for the many visitors that have "dropped in" over the years. Please accept my apologies and know we will "cycle" you in as soon as we can work things out with pass holders.

~ There will be 4 class offerings, 6 students per class;

Tuesday 10am, Wednesday 5:30pm, Thursday 10am and Saturday 9am.

~ ALL 4 classes will be multilevel, yes, you “see” correctly, Yoga Joe’s is on hold as is the Thursday 2pm class.  May I reassure those of you that have only participated in these classes you are perfectly suited for a multilevel class!  If you have a desire to return please do not let the change deter you.  The classes will necessarily be different for all of us. We all come to our mat with the mind of a beginner, Everytime!

 Instruction will focus on enhancing or developing a personal practice.

~Students will be required to wear an appropriate mask, no gator style or bandanas

~Students must bring all props, mat, blankets, 2 blocks, strap

~ To decrease clutter leave extra bags, purses, phones in your car

~The studio will no longer be able to provide water, please bring your own.

~Bring a travel size hand sanitizer for your personal use

The re-opening of the studio will require that we be patient, responsible, and respectful of the process. 

When you respond, include your current phone number. Importantly DO NOT reply to this through the blog I will not get your message!

email me

or call 252-249-2220

Thank you for your patience!




 Hey yogis,

Just so you know, You MUST call or text the studio telephone or use my personal email for me to get information.  If you responded to The Yoga Studio from the blog,  I will NOT get your answer, so if this is you, please resend your response.  A head count is imperative for coordinating the re-opening.


Thank you for your patience!


Looking for Feedback!


 Because of the restriction in the number of people in the space we need to figure the logistics of accomodating those who are ready to return to the studio, wearing masks, and having your own mats and props.   Numbers are important so please let us know your comfort level either way. To respond please call/text or use my personal email address.




Rumor Confirmation!


 We know it seems like forever and YES, you are hearing correctly! We ARE busy preparing for the re-opening of the studio! We have run into some plumbing issues so it'll be a few weeks yet.  Hang in there! Please keep in mind that things will necessarily be different when we open up. To name a few, we will comply with appropriate safe health guidelines including the requirement of wearing effective face masks.  Class size is limited to 6, and students will have to bring their own mats and props.  We are working on the logistics of attendance and will provide more details soon.  We are all called upon to be patient and kind to ourselves and others during this challenging time. Fortunately, yoga prepares us for such challenges!

As always, we welcome any thoughts or ideas you may have in support of The Yoga Studio opening!  Very importantly, please let us know if you are ready to return at this time, it will be helpful in the "figuring" of things!

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.
