February Love and Savings

A Space for Friends and Community

image

One of my intentions for this studio was to create a community space where like-minded people can do yoga, attend inspiring workshops, sip tea, and occasionally gather for potlucks or lectures or music events. This will no doubt take time to come to fruition, but I believe we will get there.

One way to make this yoga space both personal and social is by inviting a friend to class! ALL February long we have the 2 for $20 drop-in special. Make a date night with your partner, introduce a friend to your favorite class, go for morning coffee and yoga with your BFF, or bring a co-worker with you after work…find some way to make yoga both personal and social this month. (If you have tweens or teens and want to practice together, Community Yoga would be a great place to try yoga as a family.)

And don’t forget to check out our events page. We have awesome events this month that focus on deepening connections to your self, your romantic partner, and your kids, including BUTI Yoga, Couples Massage, Family Yoga (kids age 1 through 6), and more.

FYI: This week GENTLE YOGA is back on at 12:00 p.m. Tuesday (perfect if you’ve been out on the mountain all weekend!) and Misa will be subbing for Mindy on Tuesday morning 8:30 a.m.

Openings, Endings, New Beginnings

OM

Watching the classes at Valley Glow Yoga evolve this past month has brought tears to my eyes more than once. I am humbled both by the wisdom of my fellow teachers and by the sincerity of students practicing with such heart.

January unlimited passes were offered so you could hopefully meet each teacher and try as many different classes as possible. Many of these will be coming to an end soon, but don’t worry, more deals are coming in February. I will be posting about these soon.

February
