JUNE 2017


As I was promoting our Summer Cleanse on social media, I made an interesting discovery--facebook will not run ads that in any way suggest you have something that needs fixing, or that any offering will do such fixing. This came as something of a relief, actually. In Yoga, we often encounter themes of detoxing, transitioning, finding freedom--while this may suggest on one hand that a change is needed, the change is simply a remembering of our true Self. This turns out to be our focus at the studio in June. Take some time to dive deep inside and remember You as we transition into Summer. We look forward to seeing you! 
With love, Nicole and the Team at ROY.

Welcome Summer with Nicole Nichols and shake off your funk through a practice that gets body, mind and spirit moving with hip openers, heart openers and inversions, set to a soundtrack of conscious hip hop beats.

3 KEYS TO BREAKING SAMSKARAS (patterns) TO FIND FREEDOM
WITH KEEGAN WHITE
SATURDAY, JUNE 24  2:30-4:30PM

Does your life feel like a constant struggle where situations may change but the experiences are the same? Do you ever feel stuck? Do you wonder why you find yourself in the same situation over and over again, and expect to have different results? The answer may come from your belief system, formed from years of repetitive thought patterns that can create a distorted sense of truth. There is a solution, a way to move beyond the patterns that hold us back. This workshop will provide you with the tools you need to identify patterns and change the way you walk through life each day.

Join Keegan White, Women's Empowerment Coach and E-RYT 500 yoga teacher, for an interactive workshop to discover your belief systems and gain insight into how these may have created patterns in your life. Mostly discussion, with some asana--suitable for all levels. Please bring a journal and an open mind. $35
