December  2019  Newsletter
Dear Members,

The Holidays are fast approaching, and we invite everyone to consider giving yourself the gift of yoga! Classes run until December 21st.
Please note we will be closed for the holidays December 22 - January 5. But mark you calendars for Melissa's popular Restorative Workshop coming up in the New Year, Sunday, January 5, 2020, a thoughtful gift for the yogi in your life. (Details below.) Also included below is our new 2020 winter schedule link, with a few changes and additions, including the Foundations Series. 

Read on to learn why we are celebrating more teaching successes, as well as a letter of reflection from Teacher Laurie Longden, who has spent the past month studying in Pune, India at the Iyengar Institute.

Our online Gift of Yoga promotion is a thoughtful way to not only support local business but give a gift of wellness to yourself or a loved one. 

We wish all of our KYH Members a most wonderful holiday season and we look forward to seeing you at the Yoga House soon!

A friendly reminder that you can register for classes/workshops online through 
our website  kelownayogahouse and that we are a scent free studio.

Namaste,
KYH

Thank you to all of our amazing Volunteers!

Work Exchange:
We are in need of yogis who would like to help out KYH and benefit from an arrangement of work exchange (cleaning) for yoga classes.  
We will consider students who have an established relationship (for example, three months with KYH), rather than newcomers to the studio.
If you are interested, p lease talk to any teacher or co-ordinator Dianne Kapty or email:  kyh.yogahouse@gmail.com
