    Spring Forward 2012 Time Change

     Tonight I will fool the rhythm I have become accustomed to by setting the clock forward one hour. How fast an hour can go by during our active time yet I know my sense of time is going to be thrown off for about a week with the time change. It reminds me how intricately we are all connected to our global home and it's source of light the sun.
    My practice this week is going to be focused on light in my heart and patience as my body adjusts to the change in rhythm.

    expansion,new classes & fall 2011 schedule

    Expansion welcomes challenges of creativity 
    and offers an opportunity for letting go.

    *I.1. atha yogā 'nuśāsanaṃ
    Now, when a sincere seeker approaches an enlightened teacher, with the right attitude
    of discipleship (viz., free of preconceived notions and prejudices, and full of intelligent
    faith and receptivity) and with the right spirit of enquiry, at the right time and the right
    place, communication of yoga takes place.
    *Yoga Sutra of Patanjali Enlightened Living  by Swami Venkatesananda

    We have "let go" of the west wall creating more space and light in the studio and doubled the size of our suspended floor; ahh the joints are happy! Gratefully students and teachers have volunteered their time and effort in this project in manual work and accomodation of the temporary changes.

    The fall 2011 schedule is starting this Saturday, September 17. In addition to our ongoing 9:00 a.m. & 5:30 p.m. yoga classes, pilates, zumba  and a new series of Argentine Tango, Adult Belly Dance & Hula; we will be offering early morning yoga,chair yoga, more hatha II & vinyasa flow classes, and meditation classes*.

    Come on by and share a cup of tea,conversation and  enjoy a class with one of our instructors. * thursday 7:30-8:30 p.m. September 15 - October 20th/ 6 week series meditation class; practices of concentration, contemplation, meditation and realization led by Aziza

    studio expansion

    Namaste Friends,

    We hope you will visit us if you are on South Padre Island  this Labor Day weekend and help us celebrate our expanded space. In gratitude for our students we have increased our space 100%; along with the expansion we have also increased the size of our infamous sprung wood floor,  a gift from Kevin.
