Don’t you just love those crisp fall mornings with the clear sun, the feeling of freshness, the smell of morning dew … This season is such a natural time to come back inside physically and mentally, reconnecting with yourself, returning to familiar routines, and remaining attuned to circadian rhythms. Much as I love this time of year, I also know how hard it can be to find your way onto the yoga mat on the cooler and darker days. The body’s just a little bit stiffer, whines a little bit more, makes all kinds of excuses why now is not the best time to fit in your yoga practice.
Well, that’s where I come in. I’ve got a full spate of classes for the fall months with plenty of morning and evening options. So whatever suits your temperament best, choose a time and keep your date on the mat!
Step 1: Check out my Fall Teaching Schedule. There are a few changes to note: September 27 will be my last Tuesday morning Gentle Yoga class at Thomaston Yoga Studio. And from October 12, my Thursday evening Yoga+Meditation class in Thomaston will shift to Wednesdays at 6:30pm [note time change].
What will I do with my Thursday evenings? I’m excited to announce that for 6 weeks starting in November, I’ll be teaching a short course (off the mat!) on the contemporary History of Yoga at the Dancing Elephant called “What is Yoga?”. Have you ever wondered about what’s at the core of “yoga” as it goes more mainstream; and what is ‘authentic’ among all of the different classes offered at studios these days; or where yoga comes from in general? Are you a history buff who just loves to delve into specific topics and learn what was going on ‘way back when’? Look no further. And mark your calendars now. It’s going to be a nice stretch for the brain muscles – nice, gentle, and soothing, aummm.
