I’m back at Yoga Basics tonight. Never mind the flurries, come out for some yoga.
Find depth in the basics. This class makes the hard poses easy, and the easy poses hard. Beginners and more experienced practitioners alike can benefit from attention to fundamentals. We use the same alignment and actions to build a foundation or strengthen it. We open ourselves to what’s new by reinforcing the familiar.
This is based on the fundamental insight that the same alignment cues and actions used by more experienced practitioners, are used by beginners. Moreover, poses we think of as “easier” or “more basic” can be intense with the right sort of attention.
I’m happy to have a class that suits my regulars and welcomes a brand new crop of students who are coming into the studio from Introduction to Yoga series. Although it’s my philosophy that each person’s practice is unique, it’s also my view that we benefit from the energy of practicing in community. We learn both from exposure to “beginner’s mind” and the breakthroughs that come from consistent practice.
I look forward to teaching from this approach, and hope you will join me. To add the class to your Facebook calendar, scan the QR code below, or use the following URL: https://www.facebook.com/events/284111975446404/. To sign up for my mailing list, use the following form:

Mindful Vinyasa at 7 PM tonight!
I’ve a full week of teaching yoga. In addition to my regular Mindful Vinyasa and Form and Flow yoga classes at Pause Yoga Amesbury and Discover the Wonders Yoga in Dracut, respectively, I’ll be subbing for Roberta Dell’Anno’s All Levels Yoga at Essential Yoga Studio in Andover, and for Linda’s Slow Flow class following mine at Discover the Wonders.
I’ll be squeezing the most out of summer!
I saw this Instagram posted by my friend @debra977, at Essence Yoga in RI, and had to repost it, knowing that I’d have this news to share.
On Monday, July 11, I will begin teaching a “Mindful Vinyasa” class at Pause Yoga in Amesbury, MA, 7-8:15 PM. It’s a sweet little studio perched right on Main Street in a town at once timeless and trendy. I look forward to meeting new students and having new adventures in āsana there.
…means to be “great–souled.”
If we are to be great–souled, we must develop trust in giving and receiving. We’ll explore this in Form and Flow today at Discover the Wonders Yoga in Dracut.
