Aerial yoga, private and semiprivate

 Dont be intimidated by the idea of being "in the air" cuz there are plenty of things we can do at a height as low as 1'.  The sling can be helpful as support in many poses.  If you like the idea of inverting, that is an option on the higher sling. Cost: first time $25 per person per hour. Normal price is $60/hour. (Divide by 2 or three for semiprivate sessions) I also do aerial body work sessions (shiatsu) . With you in the sling, you will feel like you are floating. First time cost: $65. Regular price: $75/hour.

Beloved Mothers

 This is a photo of myself  with Marc and my mom. My mom died in Oct of 2017. I still cant quite believe that she's not here.  Death is surreal. I still miss her. But I'm glad to be able to celebrate Mother's day with Laverne, my step mom today at lake harriet.    I send love to all of you who are moms and those who have lost their moms as well as moms who have survived the loss of a child.  These are the sufferings of human beings.  Because I am a student of Budhism, I do talk about suffering in my classes.  Not in a down and out way, but I I recognize it as a human condition.  And we talk about ways to overcome suffering.  One of those ways is to find the stillness within.  That is the neutral ground that is untainted by our perceptions.  Do let me know if you are interested in learning meditation.  I teach this in private sessions. And I'm also offering thai massage again.  Since it's a clothes on style of massage we can meet at any park.  Or indoors at Peace in

in person yoga and zoom options!!

We are preparing once again for in person classes. Right now, the Tues am class has only 3 people. There is lots of room to spread out .  The photo above is from non covid times.  so remove every other person and that's how much room we have.  We also wear our masks during class.  If you are still not comfortable being around others you can also join us via zoom.   The Thurs pm class  is still via zoom.  5-6:15pm ..This class might meet at zoom once a month soon!     

Zooming continues

 I've had a lot of fun checking out various yoga teacher's classes on zoom.. I always learn something new to share with my students.  In my own zoom classes we are doing the 5 rites of Tibet and the moon salutation.  If you like to sing, we've learned a chant to sing as we.move thru the poses.  The poses are held for quite a while so it's not hard to sing . Singing is good for breath control!
