July Update

Hi Everyone,

We hope you are all doing well and enjoying the sunny, warm weather (finally!!). Summer is a time of relaxation, fun and routine thrown out the window. However changes in the normal routine can sometimes cause anxiety and stress. Using your Yoga practice to ground you this month and help you to embrace change and find freedom from anxiety is a gift you can give yourself.

The pose of the month is Bharadvajasana; seated twist. This pose can help us find that grounding in the present this month. By entering slowly with intention and gradually coming deeper we can enjoy the journey of the pose, rather than rushing to the end. The seated twist helps to create flexibility and suppleness in the dorsal and lumbar regions of the spine. It also stretches the shoulders and hips, massages the abdominal organs and improves digestion. To find out more about this pose please check out our blog, findyourflow.blogspot.com.

There are some schedule changes this month. For this week ONLY the Monday night class (6/29) will be held at Mary-ann’s house in Dobbs Ferry.

Again for this coming week ONLY Mary-ann’s Wednesday morning class (7/1) and Sunday morning class (7/5) are both cancelled.

There are some new classes that have been added as well. Our full schedules are as follows.
