As we are on the eve of Thanksgiving, I want to extend profound thanks to all who have entered my life as a result of yoga’s far reach. This last year since the studio’s closing has been a very interesting blend of highs and lows–just like for all of us. The wish for us all is to continue to notice and give thanks for all that we are, have and manage to be, despite these times of great unknowning. What makes it all tolerable is the kindness of others along the way.
This week’s teaching is as follows…
Schoolhouse Yoga (Squirrell Hill) | 7:30pm – 8:45p Yoga I (subbing for Janna)
Schoolhouse Yoga (North Hills) | 9:30am – 11:00am Yoga 1 (subbing for Diane)
Schoolhouse Yoga (North Hills) | 11:15am – 12:30am Gentle (subbing for Diane)
Millvale Community Library (MCL) – CXL’D THIS WEEK
Schoolhouse Yoga (North Hills) | 10:30am – 11:45am Yoga 1 (New class Times starting next Sunday — CHECK SCHEDULE)
Wishing you and yours peace as always. Community (UPMC & MCL) classes resume next week.
October saw the end of the Kiwanis Park Community Yoga program. It was another wonderful year of more folks discovering the program and making it an active part of their weekly regime. That is the aim of the program, to give those an opportunity to experience the benefits of incorporating yoga into their lives. All of you who show up always do more for me than I for you, so thank you for guiding the practice with your energies. I’m already working on our THIRD SEASON! Tim Rogers had been fantastic in allowing us to move to the VIP section of the tennis courts this year which proved to be absolutely conducive to our sensory experience. Thank you, Tim! Keep watch for news here and in the “IN SHALER” magazine for the 2015 starting date and confirmed summer schedule. We usually start on the first Saturday of May…which means we can get to the Annual Shaler Garden Club’s sale! Enjoy your Saturday sleeping in–I know I am 😉 I will miss you dear yogis!
No Millvale Community Library Yoga Tomorrow (Saturday, 11/8/14)
Schoolhouse Yoga – SUPER UPDATE!
It is with absolute extreme pleasure that I may release the news that I have been asked to teach at the NORTH HILLS studio (access road by 1/2 price books leading to Ross Park Mall) on SUNDAYS starting this Sunday. THROUGH NOVEMBER I will be teaching the 10:30a – 11:45a Yoga I class. For you who are not familiar with Schoolhouse (schoolhouseyoga.com), these classes are not heated. Starting in DECEMBER, the schedule has been reformulated and I will teach the 9:30a – 10:45a Yoga II followed by the 11:00a – 12:15p Yoga I. Many have been asking me since closing the studio when am I coming to a studio in the immediate vicininty…this answers that question! You can pay the drop in rate of $15.00 (remember it’s a 75 minute class!) or purchase a number of different class passes. The most popular is the 10-class pass for $100.00…even I can do that math!! Also, there is the really unique ability to purchase a pass with a friend and share it. The North Hills studio is absolutely gorgeous with it’s soaring A-frame interior and walls of windows; intimate and soothing with a mandarin glow. Schoolhouse has one of the most phenomenal corps of instructors in the vicinity and it is a true honor and blessing to be a part of this team!
I am also subbing for the month of NOVEMBER on these days @ SCHOOLHOUSE…

So this is what has come down the pipeline over the last few weeks. There are some events already forming for Spring at the MCL (Millvale Community Library) and there’s always something new on the horizon…for me and for you all. That’s the good news. We do live in interesting times. Never more than now.
Keep on keeping on and stay tuned for more updates. Remember, if you’re not breathing…you’re not living. DUH ;^) so be greedy and breathe lots because it’s one of the only things that’s still FREE!
