It's Summer! Yay!



There are so many things to celebrate today! 

Happy Father's Day to all fathers, and to single mothers that carry both roles. It is a huge role to raise a child. A few questions to consider.

What does raising a child mean to you? 
What values are you instilling in your child? 
What characteristics are you nurturing? 
What examples are you setting?

One day, your child will be someone's partner/spouse, mother/father, employee or boss, neighbor and friend. You are a major influence... there is no perfect parent, but thank you for doing your job as best you can.

Happy Summer Solstice.... Oh how I love summer and absorbing my daily dose of Vitamin D! Did you know that we need to spend ~20 minutes a day in the sun without sunscreen? (Less if you have very light skin or burn easily, more if you have dark skin). The weather has been beautiful here lately. I hope you are spending some time outside!

And  Happy International Yoga Day! This is the first year for this and I am so happy to add it to the calendar. Yoga has changed so many lives, mine included... I only wish I knew it sooner. If you have tried yoga and did not like it, I urge you to try it again. Try another style, try another teacher, reflect on what it is you didn't like. Often times, we resist what we need. 

We have a couple of new styles and a few new instructors. Come in this week to try something or someone new.

As always, we appreciate your continued support and are open to any feedback, questions, or concerns.

To your health,

3-Day Detox detox

Pick up: Daily 6-6:30pm 
Cost: $279.00
Deadline to register: Sept 10th

We are only offering the 3-day Detox in September - however, I want to encourage you to continue on this journey for an additional 7 days. Think of it as, 7-day DIY following the 3-day detox to help you incorporate some of the foods, practices, etc into your regular routine.

Some feedback from our last detox:

I love that the meals were planned out and prepared for us. And that it was all proportioned out. It reminded me that I could eat smaller portions and be full.

great food...and it doesn't even feel like you are detoxing.

It works -- very effective.

I am really glad I did the detox and would definitely do it again.  It helped me reset my thinking about what I eat and get my motivation back on track to lose a few fat pounds and get in better shape overall. 
Sound Healing Meditation soundhealing

Our monthly Sound Healing sessions will continue with Gisela!

Studio Policiesstudiopolicies


We get several requests for extensions on class card packages. Both of our class cards (10 & 25 classes) encourage you to attend class less than once a week to complete your package by the expiration date. We do not offer extensions. Please do not ask. 

As a courtesy, in the past we have rolled over unused classes onto future packages so that members would not lose any classes. 

Policy update: We will now only rollover unused classes when your next package is purchased before the expiration of your current package. 

Unused class on packages that have expired will be donated to The Art of Yoga Project

Amazon/Groupon clients are not eligible for rollover classes. No exceptions. Thank you for not asking.

No Shows
As our classes become more and more full, it is imperative that, when necessary, a reservation is canceled one hour prior to the start of class. No shows prevent another student/client from taking class and we do not want anyone to miss out if there is room available.

Classes may be canceled by logging onto your account and canceling one hour prior to the start of class, or by calling the studio up to 30 minutes prior to the start of class.

Thank you for your consideration and understanding!

Account Hold Policy
For those injured or on medical leave, you may now place your
 account on hold for $20/mo for up to 6 months.

For those needing to break a contract for any reason, there is a $25 fee for each month remaining in your contract.
