Yoga, Sunshine, Diversity & Music
HELLO BEAUTIFUL YOGA PEOPLE
The days are getting longer, and I hope you're taking time to enjoy the sunshine! I, for one, am looking forward to the slower pace of summer days and the warmth of summer nights. Regular evening class schedules may change/increase in June, so please stay tuned. And don't stop until you get to the end of this newsletter for a fun "Save the Date" announcement!
This month, I'm honored to be filling in for my own teacher, Lauren Eckstrom, while she travels. In addition to my regularly scheduled classes at the Ys and Power Yoga East, you can find me in Venice and Playa Vista with a really full schedule of classes (see below).
If you follow any yoga related media, you have probably heard about efforts to make yoga more accessible, and to more accurately represent the diversity of people who already practice yoga. Indeed, one way I gauge whether I'm doing something right is when the students I see in class are not all just young, thin, white women. Not that thin white women are bad, of course, but the mass media image of a yogi can be terribly misleading. Regardless of what you see out there, never doubt it: Yoga is for YOU!
One of the reasons I am so excited to teach donation-based classes is because they really can be open and accessible. Whether you practice daily or haven't been on your mat in a while, please join me this month in Santa Monica at Power Yoga East, Wednesdays at 8:15pm. There is space for EVERY one.
Next newsletter coming in June, so please connect with me on FB or Instagram (or links above) for interim schedule changes/sub announcements, updates, links to informational and inspirational articles, pictures/videos, and other adventures.
YOGA IS FOR GUYS, TOO
And speaking of diversity in the yoga room (on which you will hear much more from me), here's a short article from Yoga Life Daily for any men in your life (You?) who might question what that class at Power Yoga East could do for you.
Both studios have great specials for new students, so please come out to practice!
New student offer @ The Yoga Collective: three classes for $25, or first month for $49 (unlimited classes).
New student offer @ Yoga Vista: two-week pass for $30 (unlimited classes).
