Eugene Yoga and Wellness December 2019 Newsletter

Patience. Persistence. Introspection.
     Patience. Persistence. Introspection. This past year has been a study in each of these characteristics as the enormity of being steward of Eugene Yoga has become very real. As December 21st (the one-year anniversary of my ownership) approaches, I want to send heartfelt thanks to each of you for choosing to support your practice with our community. I hope you will make time on Saturday Dec 21st to celebrate with us at either location – come to practice early or stay late for a cup of tea and some delicious small bites, and learn more about some of our new initiatives…
     We are launching a blog! Yoga lifestyle is the broad theme, and we encourage you to participate by contributing your own writing ([email protected]), or by commenting on our posts. We’ll be sharing these through social media. Please like/friend/follow us on social media (instagram, fb, twitter) or bookmark our website. 
     In 2020, we’re stepping more deeply into the role of educator with once-a-month special classes that explore various aspects of yoga. Are you curious about the subtle body? Energy channels? Functional anatomy? Human movement? Your Breath? The Eight Limbs? The Bhagavad Gita? The Yoga Sutras, and more? Set aside the afternoons of the 4th Sunday of each month for these informative, interactive classes with a variety of Eugene Yoga teachers. Topics, teachers, timing and price are all being finalized and will be posted on our website and on flyers in the studios soon. 

     All of us at Eugene Yoga celebrate with you every time you grace our studios with your presence; every time you take a deep breath in the company of our community; every time you drop in to deepen the connection with your body, your mind, your spirit. We encourage you to share your thoughts about your practice in the form of a blog post, comment, online business review, and word-of-mouth. I am always interested to hear your thoughts about our offerings and your suggestions for enhancing our spaces and our community. Thank you again for making Eugene Yoga all that it is.

Free Introduction To Yoga Class
Are you curious about yoga? Wonder what the hype is all about? Think you’re too stiff? Come to our next 90 minute FREE Introduction to Yoga and find out for yourself! You’ll learn a little about the history and philosophy of this ancient lifestyle practice, and how it became ‘westernized’. You’ll be introduced to the basics of a yoga class: specialized breathing techniques, simple meditations, yoga exercises, and how, when and why to use blocks, straps and blankets to enhance your practice. Wear comfortable gym clothes (spandex not required!) in layers – we will spend much of the class in gentle movement but there will be short periods of sitting or lying in stillness. 
Next session is Sunday, December 8, 12:00-1:30pm, Downtown.
245 E. Broadway.
