Enjoy the benefits of yoga because yoga is for EVERYONE!
Yoga aims to develop endurance, balance, strength and align the body correctly. Not only does yoga help to improve your physical wellbeing..but also your mental well being. Please check with your doctor before starting any practice, especially if you have prior health issue.
May you be happy, may you be well, may you be safe, may you be loved
Hello, I hope you and your families are doing well. Above is a wonderful loving kindness prayer which can be great to recite and reflect on when sitting with your breath or even when out walking.
As uncertainty due to the pandemic remains, I will continue to offer online classes. The Spring Session II schedule is below and I hope you will be able to join me. This session starts May 3rd and goes until June 23rd.
I have 2 Monday morning classes and 2 Wednesday evening classes, as well as some Fun & Fluid classes on Saturday's. Thankful Thursday is also a nice Gentle/Restorative class that is by donation to help support others. This year over $850 has been raised and donated so far and it’s only April. So thank you for your generosity and joining the classes.
I have other free classes during the month that I hope you can take part in too. And I hope to start some outside classes if the weather is nice. The first outside class I'd like to host is on May 8th.
Please feel free to message me with any questions, to register or just say hello!
I miss seeing everyone and hope you are all well, safe and happy.

Weekly Wake-UP & Awsome April Playful Challenge
Weekly wake up are some shorter videos that I post weekly to YouTube. Please check out the last few that were part of my Awesome April Playful Challenge. So far I’ve included over 470 sun salutations into my practice this month. The weekly wake up videos show some fun variations.
Sounds of Silence started during the pandemic. For me it was, and still is a way to connect to others near and far by sitting, reflecting and generating peace.
Here are the videos from this past spring session. I was recording to Facebook at the same time as on Zoom so the quality here isn't great but the audio is fine. Since most of it is seated quietly I think you can still follow quite easily. The videos with better quality though are on my Facebook page under videos: @plnyoga
Over this past year I have done a few online sessions called Sounds of Silence. I felt it could be a great way to build a consistent meditation practice and feel connected to others at the same time.
Spring Sounds of Silence will be held over 7 evenings on my Facebook page, @plnyoga and I will also be recording over zoom and uploading to my YouTube channel. If you can’t join live you can do at a time that is best for you.
Spring is a time of renewed energy and often an endless to do list. It can become very challenging to maintain a steady mind when we are thinking of so many things and during a pandemic even harder.
Let’s join together and bring our normal awareness, which can be quite cluttered with day to day thoughts to a more meditative awareness.
If you would prefer to join me via Zoom instead of on my Facebook page please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have read this quote before, “One of the hardest things to do in yoga is unroll your mat.”
April, in North America anyways, shows more signs of spring, light and growth, I thought it would be a great opportunity to incorporate some Sun 🌞 Salutations into your daily or weekly practice.
This is just a playful challenge. Please don’t over do:) as it is more a time to give thanks to the sun for the energy it provides.
In the videos I have tried to show a few options. If you join it may be helpful to keep a journal of not only the number of sun salutations done but also how your body felt, how the breath felt and what the mind was saying to you:).
