Yoga is an art and science dedicated to creating union between body, mind and spirit. The 8 limbs are guidelines for a happy, satisfying life. The first four are Yama, Niyama, Asana, and Pranayama. 1) The Yamas are about personal ethics, how you conduct yourself. 2 ) Niyamas are social ethics, how you treat others and the environment. 3) Asana, the physical part, are the postures and movements that characterize yoga. 4) Pranayama is about the breathing and breath control that we practice during class. Asana and Pranayama are the two aspects that we use in class. They help build and maintain strong bodies, rejuvenate, and help with relaxation. You can read more about the 8 Limbs at this link.
Jamie and I have decided to postpone our teacher training until 2018. We both have a lot going on in our lives and need to let these settle before taking on that commitment again. We did just graduate 4 fabulous teachers. Karri teaches classes in Seymour. Savannah teaches in Hartford and Wear's Valley. Amy has taught some of our restorative classes and has taught the teachers at Pi Beta Phi Elementary School. Hannelore teaches in West Knoxville. We enjoyed the course and are very proud of the graduates. They are awesome.
My family is visiting from July 10 – July 17. Jamie has family visiting at that same time. All classes are canceled from 7/10 – 7/14. There will be yoga on Saturday 7/15 (maybe some of my family will join us). Since there are no classes on July 4th too, I am offering a special rate for July: Modified Month is $25 (2 classes per week) and the Unlimited Month is $37.
Have a Happy Summer!
