November already! where has the time gone? We've been in our space just three months now, and we have a lot to be grateful for!
Some of you know that my daughter, Sarah was married in October. What a beautiful day and a beautiful wedding! I couldn't be more proud of her and my new son-in-law, Christopher. I spent that whole day being purposefully mindful and present. I didn't want to miss a thing. I took very few photos because I just wanted to "be there". My thoughts throughout the day were all about gratitude and joy.
All the smiling happy faces coming through our doors prove that this space is exactly what we hoped it would be, a place of yoga, where everyone can learn, share and grow! What an awesome gift we've been given!
Danielle Pietz joined our Shala in September, and we couldn't be happier. She has such a bubbly, fun personality, and it really comes through in her classes!
We completed our first Beginners Series, and have a new one starting on the 9th. We love the fact that through this class we are able to share the benefits of yoga with so many new students.
This month we are also very excited to announce a new Monday Morning Rise & Shine Yoga class featuring our dear friend and fellow yogi Terri Wiblemo. Every Monday morning in November at 8:00. This will be 30 minutes you won't want to miss!
We also feel very fortunate to be able to offer a workshop in November to help share the benefits of essential oils. We both use and enjoy essential oils in our daily lives as well as our yoga practice, and we want everyone to share in that experience. This is coming up on Saturday, the 12th with Jennifer Nawrocki. You won't want to miss this!
Anne Marie is nearing completion of her advanced teacher training. This means she has completed nearly 500 hours of intense yoga study, what an accomplishment! I feel very grateful for her experience, wisdom, and guidance.
I recently had the opportunity to complete a Level 1 Prenatal Yoga training at Blooma in Minneapolis. This was such a rewarding experience and we are so excited to be able to begin offering prenatal yoga classes in our community! We would love your input on schedule options, and if you have friends or family members who could benefit from prenatal yoga, please share this news with them. Check out our poll on Facebook and submit your feedback!
In addition, we are thrilled to announce that Sue Einerson will teach Mommy & Me yoga coming in January! We really can't wait to add this as a fun bonding experience for Mom's and kids! By the way, this class will also be open to Daddy's! We also have a Facebook poll for this class since we would love your input on scheduling!
So much happening! we are busy working on our schedule for 2017, so be sure to subscribe to our newsletter and our Facebook events to get all the latest!
The holidays are coming, and since we want everyone to enjoy their time with family, we will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. As a thank you to our community, we will have a special sale on gift certificates on Small Business Saturday, so watch for more details on that! These gift certificates can be used for any purchase and are a great way to say "happy holidays" to a friend, family member, a co-worker, or even for yourself!
Much love and gratitude!
