Namaste Yogis and Yoginis,
You can listen to the audio and/or read the transcript here.
The response has been a bit overwhelming and Brian and I are still slogging through the messages, texts, and comments on our respective social media feeds.
Meanwhile, there is yoga business to attend to, so here we go:
KIT ONTKO’S THURSDAY NIGHT CLASS BEGINS TOMORROW EVENING, SEPTEMBER 12TH AT 6:45PM. If you need more info, please email her: firstname.lastname@example.org – otherwise… just show up!
UPDATE ON BIRCH CAFE CLE – The new vegan cafe and store that announced it will open in the old Biaggio’s space in our little strip center is now under construction. Originally, slated to open end-of-October, I’m not sure they will meet that deadline. I’ll keep you posted!
CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUR YOGA MAT : It’s end of summer (boooo) and as we enter fall and cool down for real, think about giving your yoga mat a thorough cleaning. The easiest way to do that and really get it clean is to add some dish soap and warm water to the bathtub, use a soft cloth or brush to get some of the oils that have accumulated off the surface, rinse thoroughly, and then let it dry completely. If you have a Jade mat, remember that it is natural rubber and takes a LONG TIME to dry. Do not put it in the sun however – dry it in a cool, shaded place.
If your mat is slippery or beginning to wear or crack and you’d like to try a Jade mat – which is what I have been using and recommending for almost 15 years – we do have a demo at the studio. IF YOU HAVE A LATEX ALLERGY however, you will not be able to use a Jade.
If it’s time to replace your mat (they do eventually wear out and become more slippery and less comfortable – “nothing lasts forever”) we have Jade mats in stock to sell OR we can order a specific thickness, color, and length. (We need 6 mats to place that order).
go to a text-for-class system for those weeks. You can always check the schedule on line.
I believe that’s it for now. Have a great weekend. If you can’t make it to class, do a forward fold, a spinal twist, and a balancing pose!
