Get Connected & Stay Connected with the BYS Yoga APP!  

I've found myself flying by the seat of my pants recently...moving quickly from deadline to deadline, meeting to meeting, class to class... my mind a flurry of thoughts and endless to-do lists. Focusing more on getting from point A to B than consciously paying attention to the path along the way. This is the epitome of a yogi, right!? Geez!!! And, I know just admitting this that people are going to flock to my classes... Ha!

Yes, I know, I have over committed myself a bit to too many projects (something I am aware of and working on). But, here we are two weeks into the New Year and I know that I can't (nor want to) keep moving so quickly.  For me, moving quickly means I'm not paying attention.  It reduces my level of mindfulness and thoughtfulness. I know that I need space and time to make conscious and well thought out decisions and actions... and for me to be my best Self.

It comes as no surprise to me then, that today the Universe interceded. It made sure that a HUGE coincidence happened. A moment so kismet that I had to pause, shift my awareness, and awaken from the fogged state from which I've been moving. It's like the Universe was saying.... "Kristi, HELLO!!?! Do I have to move mountains before you start paying attention!!??"

Okay, I get it.  And, I'm thankful that it wasn't some terrible life threatening diagnosis or accident that shifted my attention.  It was just running into someone whom I hadn't seen for close to 10 years. Running into them only because we were in the same place at the same time.  So, is it coincidence or something more!? My yoga practice has taught me that it's something more.

So...thanks, Universe for the reminder!  Not only to pay attention, but that there is something much wiser and greater that exists to steer me back on my path when I'm venturing astray!

There are many ways to take your Yoga out of the studio!  One way is to have access to more classes in more places!  We are thrilled to be teaming up with a few non-studio sites to bring additional weekly BYS Yoga classes into our community in the New Year:

4:30-5:30 p.m.
South Side Market House Senior Center
w/ Kristi Rogers/Paul Richards/Holly Koenig
This class is open to everyone, but primarily focuses on offering a Level 1 class to active seniors.  The South Side Market House Senior Center is located around the corner from our studio in Bedford Square (12th Street). This class is located on the first floor (which means you don't always have to climb two flights of stairs for an awesome yoga class!). 

5:30-6:30 p.m.
Station Square (coordinated by MARC USA)
w/ Lynn Rescigno
This Level 1-2 class is open to all and is located on the second floor of the Freight House shops.

regular class pricing
(if you have a BYS Yoga class pass/package, you are welcome to use it at these sites - sign up just like you would for regular classes!)
