Amazing August

Dear Yoga Birds,

We are so thrilled to share our new August schedule with you. It includes some very cool new offerings that I will detail below. But even more, it represents that our community has grown and matured into a vibrant yoga center. At the same time, we feel like the friendly, welcoming vibe that makes the Bird, the Bird is stronger than ever. We hope you do, too.


Expanding our weekly schedule of classes at the same time we prepare to dedicate our Center for Teaching and Learning seems an auspicious occasion. As such, I'd like to invite you to use this special time to rededicate yourself to practice and to the promise of inner peace it holds for you. I was so blessed to share time with my teachers, including some special time with Panditji, earlier this month, and it gave me great confidence that the time we spend together at Yoga Bird really matters in our individual lives and in the healing of our connection to that which is greater than us.

I look forward to practicing with you this month and in the months and years to come.

With so much love, Anna 


New to the August Schedule

Morning Sanskrit Invocation- Wednesdays with Heather and Friday with Anna
Greet the day with a traditional series of Sanskrit chants from the Himalayan tradition. Simply absorb the vibration or learn to chant along.  Then settle into ten minutes of minimally guided meditation.


Open Silent Meditation – Mondays with Chip, Tuesdays with Ann, and Thursdays with Anna
Join us for twenty minutes of minimally guided mediation. Each session will include some guidance on finding a comfortable seat, breathing easily and focusing your mind on your breath or on a mantra from the yoga tradition.  No experience necessary.


Power Yoga – Sunday mornings with Chip
Power Yoga at the Bird is an accessible, yet challenging asana practice for body and mind to help you build strength and endurance and cultivate a clear mind. Learn to work with more challenging sequences and poses in a way that allows you to build inner support so that your practice is invigorating, safe, and sustainable. Students are encouraged to modify and rest as appropriate.  It will be helpful to be familiar with some common poses and modifications from Yoga 1.

 
Yoga en Español – Thursday evenings with Karina
Take an all levels yoga class en Español. Your instructor will offer various options with most poses so you can explore and learn more on days when you feel energetic or stay with the fundamentals on days when you need the stability. All Levels classes may be suitable for beginners, but if you’re brand new, you may spend some time observing some poses or taking more rest. All Levels is a great place to learn more about the poses and practices and how to use them to help you meet your goals in body and mind.

Yoga Lunch Break – Mondays and Wednesdays with Chip, Tuesdays and Thursdays with Sue
Give yourself a healthy break half way through the day. Yoga lunch break is a shortened all-levels asana practice.  In just 45 minutes, you’ll enjoy stretching, moving, and strengthening that will power you up for the rest of the day, without making you so sweaty you can’t go back to the office. Have a little extra time?  Stay fifteen more minutes for an extended meditation.


Yoga Kids – Wednesdays with Shanna – and NOW you can drop kids off and go to the 4:30 class next door.  If this goes well, we’ll add Mondays next!
Watch your little birds grow as they discover the joy of movement using both gentle stretches and active fun. Your child will build confidence, creativity, and independence through yoga movement, stories, and games in this uplifting, hour-long class. Parents can attend an All Levels Yoga class next door if desired. Ages 3+. Children may not be dropped off more than ten minutes before class begins and must be picked up promptly at 5:30.  This class is covered under all unlimited memberships, or $10 drop in for one child.  Add a sibling for additional $2.
