Even in this hot, dry week, three weeks before the formal start of autumn, the harbingers of seasonal change are coming. When I sit to meditate in the morning, it is still not quite light out, the scent of the leaves starting to change is evident when the wind blows, apples and winter squash are gradually replacing the summer fruits at the fresh farm market.
Fall tends to be a busy time of year for us as a culture, and my calendar is chock full with work, workshops, plans to visit friends and family, volunteer work, and the offerings of our great city, but it is always important to take time to pause and enjoy the sweetness of being. It is just when things are at their busiest, that it is most important to carve out the time for some yoga. I’ll be doing lotsof my own study and practice to make more joyous offerings for you.
William Penn House on Tuesday nights continues to be a welcome haven for regulars of all levels and more occasional visitors. Drop in and join us any time. More info on my website at www.rosegardenyoga.com.
My Willow Street classes of the Fall session start on Saturday, September 25th — flow (level 2+) at 8:45 am and gentle/therapeutics at noon in Takoma Park. It is always great to register for the full session to help get the benefits of the regularity of class every week, but drop ins are always welcome.
If you have been curious about the gentle/therapeutics class or have friends you want to introduce to the class, please join me at noon on Saturday, September 18th, when the class is offered as part of Willow Street’s free class week. More information about free class week and the regular session and workshops are available on-line at www.willowstreetyoga.com.
Mark your calendars for upcoming workshops: Hanumanasana: Nemesis No More, Saturday, October 16th and Thanksgiving Day Fundraiser for Oxfam, both at Willow Street Yoga, Takoma Park.
