Exciting Things Ahead – Fall 2011

Wow–so much exciting stuff is in the works for September and onward right now that I can hardly contain myself!  Not only will I be opening more time slots for private yoga lessons, but I am also working with some of the best yoga studios and health clubs in the Seacoast region to offer some AMAZING workshops!

To give you a little taste of what’s in the proverbial hopper:  A four-session Yoga Fundamentals program for folks who are intimidated about trying a yoga class.  I know that it took me a while before I went to a yoga studio, and (thankfully) I worked with someone who went to the studio I was intrigued by but never had the guts to visit.  She brought me to a Basics class, and even though I was awkward and not flexible, it gave me the space to realize I wasn’t alone, and that the journey had to begin there–in a class that focused on the basics.  So, I’m offering this as a workshop-based program for those people who need that little extra before checking out a yoga class.

I’m also going to be offering a workshop for Runners & Cyclists.  Let’s face it.  If you do either, you probably don’t stretch enough.  Hell, I was a yogi before I was a marathoner, and I sometimes still don’t stretch as much as I know I should after a run.  (My yoga teacher friends always laugh at me about this.)  But make no mistake–I do stretch the muscles that were worked the most.  This program is designed to help runners and cyclists stay injury-free by loosening up what is chronically tight and helping to create balance between both sides of the body.

Of course, I’m also looking forward to peppering the fall and holiday season with some fun and restorative workshops as well.  Arm balances, Backbends, Renew & Restore, etc.

If you are interested in attending one of my workshops or having me at your studio to lead one of these programs, please let me know!  I can also share information about privates or small group lessons for you and your BFF, bridal party, etc.  I’d love to hear from you!


About yogajolie

I'm a work in progress. Give me a sunny day at the beach followed by a late afternoon thunderstorm. My flip flops and running shoes somehow find rank and file among the melee of Manolos and high boots in my closet. I think finding bliss on a yoga mat is sheer happiness, but also enjoy lacing up and suffering...just a little bit...on a long run. Maybe this comes from my start in life. It began in Chicago, but we spent weekends and summers in a small beach town in Southwest Michigan. City mouse meets country mouse. Yin and yang. Juxtaposition. Balance. I'm fiercely independent, but after thirty-some-odd years on this planet realized that I'm also a little old-fashioned. *go figure* I'm mildly addicted to Kombucha. And eye cream. (I'm all about the moisturizer.) I appreciate good manners. Chivalry. Please and thank you. That's not to say that there isn't a little urban girl, punk rock heart still beating in my chest. There is. I've lived a lot of life so far...and miles to go before I sleep. So, that's me. I'm an East Coast girl with punk rock heart and a yoga soul. Practicing, playing, teaching and sharing as much as I can. I currently teach at two studios--it will be three as of September 1st, as I was recently named the Advanced Yoga class/workshop instructor for the newest location. Outside of my home studios, I offer workshops and private yoga lessons as well. Contact me if you want more information!

  1. Great idea offering yoga to endurance athletes. I was just the opposite of you: a runner and cyclist before I became interested in yoga. I still suffer from tight hips and IT bands, and yoga is just about the only thing that keeps me limber. If you have an active triathlete community in your area, you may want to get them in on the yoga as well. Good luck!

    Thanks for the feedback! I’m glad you found yoga and that it’s helping. 🙂 There’s a good number of triathletes in this area, and I do hope to share this experience with them. Be well!
