Community Update
On-line classes, which we started offering on March 18, have proven very popular and for that we are grateful. Thanks to the overwhelming support of the community we are able to retain our outstanding teachers and continue.

At present, we do not know when it will be safe to conduct classes in a closed room; obviously, the government wants to open businesses as soon as possible because the economy is being hurt. However, our only concern is the well-being of our teachers and you. Accordingly, we will return to our physical space whenever it is responsible to do so. 

We ask that you take the on-line classes and our workshops in the safety and convenience of your home.

Staying calm in turbulent times
by Harvard Women's Health Watch

"Nowadays, simply tuning in to the daily news is likely to be stressful. Add on the stresses of daily life — such as handling work demands or adjusting to retirement, dealing with family issues, coping with illness, or caregiving — and you may begin to greet each day with apprehension and worry. In other words, you can become anxious."  Read full article

Yoga Practice of the Week

Cat Pose 
Cat pose provides a gentle massage to the spine and belly organs. This pose is also know to strengthen the arms, wrists, and shoulders as well as to relieve tension in the thoracic, cervical, and lumbar spine; warming up the back for practice. Along with strengthening and toning the abdominal muscles, cat pose is also known for increasing spinal flexibility.


Step 1 
Start on your hands and knees in a "tabletop" position. Make sure your knees are set directly below your hips and your wrists, elbows and shoulders are in line and perpendicular to the floor. Center your head in a neutral position, eyes looking at the floor.

Step 2
As you exhale, round your spine toward the ceiling, making sure to keep your shoulders and knees in position. Release your head toward the floor, but don't force your chin to your chest.

Step 3
Inhale, coming back to neutral "tabletop" position on your hands and knees.

Step 4
This pose is often paired with Cow Pose on the inhale for a gentle, flowing vinyasa.

Exceptional Teachers Exceptional Classes

Meet Audrey Roxas!


Audrey has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and initially sought it as a way to take a break from the daily work pressures. As her practice matured, she has also realized the spiritual and quieting benefits of yoga – the ability to stop the chatter and just be still. Certified at the 500 hour level, her classes are fun, dynamic, and challenging. They are focused on building strength and stability but offers plenty of room for students to work on expanding their own practice. With her continued desire to share her practice, she is also certified in the healing art of Thai Yoga and Restorative Yoga. She attributes her love for yoga, her center, and grounding from all the wonderful teachers she has and had. 

Join Audrey every week for class.
