as most of you know, i eschew social media and am terrible about broadcasting where i am teaching now that i am physically and emotionally ready to teach again aside from yoga in the park at kiwanis.
i have started teaching at Rival Yoga in the duncan manor shopping plaza (if you know the former Take Yoga–this is the location). i teach thursdays–so today–from noon to 1:00p, and it is a gentle/restorative class for sure.
my teaching has also moved in a direction of working with young adults and adults with intellectual disabilities (autism and other percasive disorders). as a single mother raising two children and autism raising (let the definition move in many ways) me, there will always be a special understanding and connection to those in this community. i teach at shawn mcgill consulting on mt. royal boulevard in shaler/glenshaw. many of you drive by and have seen the lighted hands reaching toward the earth sign–that is the the offices of shawn and staff. they are a social services agency and shawn was presented with the Temple Grandin award last year for work in the autism community (which has been decades). little obscure sign, big work and impact. on saturdays, we hold a group yoga class for these clients and others and we also do additinal work privately (office or home). if you have questions or interest or want to refer someone our way, please just reach out.
so based on the above paragraph, shawn’s offices will be the new location for a public evening class or two. wednesday at 6p (one hour) will start a hybrid yoga1/gentle mix and if you know my teaching style and have attended a class, you would know that you are often doing secret YOGA I moves only you didn’t know it!!! there is a fine line and that is what exists in the mind. it is not the yoga wikipedia reference table! 🙂
a second class is in the works. if you would like to offer some feedback about what you might like to see, that is fine. we all know pittsburgh is saturated with yoga so there are plenty of places to go.
some have asked whether i still teach privately. the answer is yes and this means you can request i come to your home (private or small group of moms, etc), you may start a workplace class or i can work in other venues.
lastly, this is the time for my website expansion and i will be working on the addition of adding “products” for folks to do where ever. so many clients have asked me to so this as they live all over the world and i have not come into this century–until now. those who struggle to get out of bed and try to work to ‘right’ their brain, and emotions, and then have the further arduous task of knocking on the body’s door and asking our parts to join the dance–REALLY?! “not today” might be an answer for a different day if there is more readily available connection to you all. there is nothing that sets me apart from all of you. the struggle has never been more real for each of us on this planet. let’s do the best we can a little at a time, and remember, we can only do what we can starting with ourselves.
this was sent to me from the devastated regions of the ozark mountains.
it does make sense, when nothing else does.
and so the hope will be for a saturday practice in the park. as always, an early morning update will find you…or you find it if you haven’t hit the “follow” button (on the site).
and for the GRAND FINALE!!!
