New Friends from Friends

I am loving the vibe in the new studio. It's so comfortable. The light is amazing and it's so quiet and peaceful it really feels like a temple to me. And a train goes by every time we are in savasana. A quiet train just far enough away that it sounds rhythmic and grounding - perfect for savasana. Phil commented that he wants to get to class earlier so he can hang out in the space for a little while longer before we get down to business which is why I have one hammock on the way and will be ordering another shortly. So come hang out anytime. I'm going to post this blog and then head over there for a practice before I go meet Ave to finish up some email and website stuff we are working on.

And I have to say I'm so thankful to have the space but even more for the community that is building around it. If someone would have told me 10 years ago I would be doing this I would have laughed. I was so into trying to do everything myself. I was (and still am) goal oriented and all about the challenge which was great for a while but will only get you so far. And one of the most important things I've learned from my teaching over the last 8 years is that you can't. You absolutely cannot get there, where ever there is, alone. So here are some pics of the gifts I've been given for the studio. I think it's a sign of appreciation for all of us and the work we do that people are bringing in gifts to make the space more beautiful. Thanks for the Ganesh, Laxshmi, mini forest, the jade in it's sweet little green pot, Krishna, Bhudda and flowers in the pretty green vases. They were given to me but they are really for all of us.

Sandwich Board Art

I just finished a new sandwich board painting for YOGA GARDEN. I got really into making these 7 years ago when I started teaching at Creative Electric. I like the way the wood cracks and the paint chips and starts to roll as they age. I hope you like them. "Restrooms", "Dressing Room" and "Private" coming soon...

Thursday Nights Are Back...

Starting tonight 6:30 - 8:00...

I miss the Thursday night class. We had a lot of fun in this class when it was at Foat Design. It's the end of the week and everyone is usually a little loopy and ready to bust a move. Which makes for a lot of fun.

Hope to see you there.

And we're in...

We are officially in!

 I taught for the first time in the new studio last night and am so happy to say it was just lovely. All the natural light and the view of the sky is wonderful and get this, it's quiet. Really, Really quiet. The space feels like home to me already. I hope you will come check it out sometime soon.

Much Love, L
