studio and class updates

Greetings All!!

I wanted to touch base via the blog before I depart for a holiday celebration in Texas!

So the first thing, Andy being a lover of the weather happenings is keepin' his eye on the potential snow storm this weekend. Just a reminder that the first place that I will post any class cancellations will be here on the blog. It's faster this way since I don't make changes on our website. I have Retta, our graphic goddess that does such beautiful things.

The class schedule is modified for next week and New Years Eve. Here is the schedule:
Dec. 20 Yoga for Stress Relief as scheduled

Dec. 21 @ 6:00
All Levels

Dec. 22 @ 5:45 All Levels

Dec. 23 @ 6:00 Yin Yoga

Closed Dec. 24 & 25

New Years Eve @ 9:15 All Levels

New Years Day @ Noon YinYasa

We have little mini schedules on the front desk. Take one if you'd like. And you can view the teachers teaching each class here.

I've been so very happy to see you guys and gals keeping up with your practice leading into the holiday. Kuddos to all of you for taking such great care of yourselves. It can be a challenge at this time of year. Sometimes a yoga class can be just the thing we need during the sometimes stressful season. Yes, very proud of you . And you too. ;)

We have a new teacher added to our schedule, Beth Barkley. Beth will be teaching the Tuesday evening 7:15 class. If you haven't had the joy of taking class with her, then do so as soon as you can. She's truly a delight and is making for one fantabulous teacher! We had to say goodbye to Emily as her schedule gets a bit tricky next semester, but luckily she'll be back to rotating Saturdays with me in the new year and teaching community yoga.

Yoga Teacher Training is FULL for 2010! I can't wait to get started back up again. Do completely, 100 % love this process! And we have two gals joining us from eastern KY, which really makes me happy. That's Mary above in Warrior I. She was one of my students I trained in Hazard and she's joining us for the 200 hour training. Yippy!

I'll be playing the little yogini elf here shortly when I deliver gifts to the sweet ones over at Florence Crittenton Home. I've been wrapping gifts, placing gift cards in bags, and writing my fave quotes on cards for the gals. I am truly inspired by all the giving that's been going on with our yoga community. I hope to get some pics of some type, although I don't think I can take the girls photos due to privacy.

If you are planning to come to the day long retreat on the 2nd (and I think you totally should) register as soon as you can! I think we have 8 spots open. And the price goes up to $115 on the 23rd. Get the scoop here. It's gonna be a treat and a super sweet way to greet the new year!

And a yummy toffee recipe from Cindy, one of our students. She brought this to our holiday party and it's de-lish! When she said she made it in the microwave, I knew I had to have the recipe. Enjoy!

3/4 C butter, ( 1 1/4 sticks)
1 cup water
3 tablespoons water
chopped nuts of choice, about 3/4 cup
butter to butter cookie sheet
Choc chips, about 1/2 C (may use semisweet or milk chocolate)

Melt butter in microwave in large glass bowl. Add 1 cup sugar and 3 tablespoons water and mix well. Return to microwave and cook 6 minutes. Remove and quickly stir. Return to microwave and cook at 30 second intervals until mixture is a golden brown. Immediately pour onto buttered cookie sheet that you have sprinkled with nuts. Sprinkle with choc chips, let them sit on hot candy until melted ,them spread them over candy and sprinkle with more nuts.

I'll have my laptop in Texas and will probably blog while away. I'm wishing of you a happy hoppy holiday!!

Peace out.....

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years. sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.
