My dear West Lafayette friends for whom my 6 am Wednesday Sunrise Yoga session is too early,
Welcome to my Tuesday and Thursday 12:15 – 1:00 p.m. yoga sessions starting next week, September 6th. Here are three reasons to join me,
Reason number 3: Short and gentle session open to all levels of yogis.
The shortened session is intended to be an afternoon break from the desk. We’ll do a few standing poses to help recover our strength and ground, balance poses to help us focus on our remaining work and hip openers to help us sit through the rest of the workday.
Reason number 2: Wear comfortable work clothes.
No need to change into gym clothes. If you can take a wide stand, fold forward and take your legs up to the sky (comfortably and without flashing anyone), any stretchy pants and shirt combination will work. I don’t plan on getting us hot and sweaty. Despite the commercialization, there is no need for specialized yoga clothes! There I said it.
[If you feel the need to change, our bathroom is always available.]
Reason number 1: Grown-up rest time – Savasana.
Doesn’t a mid-day short break sound wonderful? Take yourself back to pre-school nap time (without the drool, waiting for your parents to pick you up, eyes half open, imprints of the mat on your face etc.). Nurture yourself, move your achy joints and muscles, stop the noise and hear yourself breathe for a few moments before you go back to your busy day.
A single session is $15. Try it. If you like it, treat yourself to one of the many packages. Sign up is easy on the Community Yoga Website: https://communityyogalafayette.com
Come move, breathe and rest with me!
Hope to see you next week,
