Miscellaneous Updates

as we are now in the full swing of summer, many of us are intensely enjoying these long and unpredictable days of summer. i hope that you all are doing a little of what you love daily, even if it isn’t always on the terms you’d like.

some changes to my community teaching schedule are occurring. although i enjoyed my time at embody, we have decided to end the wednesday and friday morning classes. oxford athletic club has invited me to be a part of their mind/body program which i am very excited about. kristi coleman is also a part of that team which makes me especially happy! it’s nice to be able to be a part of a group sincerely dedicated to the enrichment of mind, body and spirit.

the yoga program at the millvale community library kicks off this saturday at 10:00am and it’s FREE! finally!!!! it has been a year in the planning and the library is going strong. there are some super amazing classes that are offered that you may want to check out for kids and adults. gentle yoga is on the 1st and 3rd saturday and yoga I is offered on the 2nd and 4th saturday. essentially, it is all levels but the gentle is really for those who have more restrications in their practice and can’t necessarily do the down-up routine.

thanks to a dedicated former client, UPMC st. margaret’s now has a yoga program! on tuesday, july 8th was our first session and it is open to staff and clinicians. this is a donation class ($10.00 minimum suggested). currently, we have set tuesdays at 4:00pm (60 min.) as our designated time. if you are interested, send me a note 🙂

two new BIG programs are also in the works.

kiwanis park is on for tomorrow and since it is going to be a great morning, get your spot early because the court can fill up quickly…especially if you like the back! more than likely we are rotating though, so don’t get comfortable 😉

that’s the news for now. thanks for lending me your time and eyes and i look forward to seeing you tomorrow or whenever time allows!

namaste, yogis!

Updates & Miscellaneous News

hello yogis!

It has been so good to see your beautiful faces coming to the 9:15am classes @ Embody on Wednesdays and Fridays…kinda just like old times just with different ‘framing’!  The studio at Embody is light and lovely with it’s soft violet haze and lots of windows to let the sun shine in.  The juice & natural food bar opens early so it’s a nice little place to plant yourself and have some tea or other nourishment before practice.

Dates have been finalized for Kiwanis 2014!!!!  start date is saturday, may 3rd!  the schedule will be forthcoming but i just wanted to confirm the most important date being the start 🙂

This saturday, Feb. 15th, Medica will be hosting and running a fantastic EXPO on everything around DETOXING.  The timing couldn’t be better as we begin to transition from the harshest of winter months into the slow gentle beginnings of rebirth…SPRING!  IT WILL BE HERE but the question is how do we prepare ourselves mentally and physically for this stage.  What can we do differently this time?  What negative habits can we replace with beneficial one…we certainly have enough time to reprogram between now and then.  So it’s important to really look at what is going on in your life and in your own personal ‘house’; take stock, reevaluate and purge.  It’s time for renewal and the cultivation of what best serves you.  Let Beverly guide you and answer these questions.  There’s even a chance to work your asanas!  An all-level yoga session will be offered at 2:00pm with yours truly.  This session will be an entry point for many, so there should be no expectation about what is possible or impossible.  Just be present and allow yourself to be guided…that is all.  Space is limited so please follow this link for registration and ticket information….http://www.medicathehealingarts.com/Events.html

Some interesting things are underway for an official start of some community classes coming to the millvale area…stay tuned.  More information should be streaming in a few weeks.

Many have asked me how it feels now not having the studio.  My initial response is of course sadness because I truly loved the space and that it was OUR SPACE, but now, I truly love being portable…mobile and not tethered to one spot.  That I can connect daily outside with all kinds of folks and really work on my work with the community-at-large–that’s oxygen for my fire!!!  I couldn’t feel more vital and focused right now.  So that’s the really super news!!!  2014 is turning out be be an extremely pivotal year for me…i hope that the same is true for you, and that it is really about coming closer to the things/endeavors and people you truly care about.  The things that build you up and help reveal more to you about who and what you truly are about…your own missions and dreams.

I look forward to seeing more of the faces that blessed 2013 and even more new ones just waiting in the wings.  We can never even imagine the goodness that’s out there waiting for us, one connection at a time leading us to the well…the well-th.  wholeness.

Thanks for reading these goofy posts and staying connected in all the ways you do.   as ever, sending love and hope to you all.


Teaching Starts on 2/5/14 @ Embody Juice Bar & Studio | Wexford, PA

Finally some solid news on where you can catch me teaching on a regular basis.   Embody Natural Health (of Lawrenceville) has opened up it’s second location on Route 19 in Wexford.  It is right near Rita’s Italian Ice if you are familiar with that landmark!  Follow the link…http://www.embodynaturalhealth.com/

I will be teaching on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 9:15am and it will be the “mindful flow” that you were pretty much accustomed to at LLS. Aimee has a really lovely model and on one side of the building (right) is the juice & food bar and on the other side (left) is the studio. They are connected by a common lounge area which has some couches and books and lots of nice things to cozy up to. Specials run every day so it’s really nice little added bonus to be able to fill up on something hearty and healthy after class. Especially as we are in the throws of this horrid winter season. We all have grown weary and weak from the constant barrage of extreme temperatures. Aimee Woods is an expert on what might be the best remedy for what is ailing you nutritionally.

Please be sure to arrive 10-15 minutes early in order to prepare and set-up. Looking forward to seeing you all again regularly. I am grateful to Aimee for providing the opportunity for former clients to resume their most sacred practice. We are looking for this to be a really supportive endeavor for everyone involved. hands helping hands always!!!

Any questions…shoot me an email! Thank you for your continued fervent support 🙂
