 February 2015 


We're welcoming new students to our studio as 2015 Yoga Teacher Training begins Friday. This 10-month program can be life-changing, as Judy Ryan explains below. Judy is a 2014 YTT graduate. The course enriched her personal yoga practice as well as developed her teaching skills.

It isn't too late to register so if you're thinking about it, you can always stop by Friday at 5 pm and talk to Dr. Jaime Sanchez, who leads the training.  


YTT runs one weekend a month. To prevent any confusion about room availability, for the next several months Saturday and Sunday classes will be canceled those weekends only. When the students begin their practicums, classes will resume with the students teaching in those time slots at a cost of just $5 for yogis.

"Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional." Timothy Burgin, founder of Yoga Basics, offers perspective on the subtle difference between dukha and klesha.

How are your New Year resolutions coming along? Don't struggle on your own to make lifestyle changes. Sign up for yoga, tai chi or capoeira to help you get fit in mind, body and spirit.


We offer a wide variety of classes and times as well as services to give you a pick-me-up.

workshopThe Difference Between Pain and Suffering   

There is a subtle yet profound difference between pain (dukha) and suffering (klesha). The saying "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional" begins to describe this distinction and the yogic goal of "unlinking the link" between dukha and klesha.

The Buddhist teaching of the two arrows is a helpful metaphor to use when you want to minimize or make suffering optional. Most people are hit with two arrows of pain and suffering. The first arrow is the initial physical or emotional pain that often cannot be avoided. The second arrow is the mental reaction/response from the first arrow; and it is this second arrow that causes most, if not all, of our suffering.

To work with this metaphor, start by discerning the two arrows of pain and suffering. Once you start to see the distinctions, then cultivate detachment from the reaction/response of ego and mind. Lastly, redirect or change the second arrow into an instrument of growth, insight and learning.

article3Some Classes Canceled during YTT Weekends 
Yoga Teacher Training 2015 starts February 6. In the past, classes were left on the schedule but sometimes last minute decisions made the room unavailable.

To prevent confusion this year, Saturday and Sunday classes will be canceled during Yoga Teacher Training weekends only. When the students begin their practicums, classes will resume with the students  teaching in those time slots at a cost of just $5 for yogis.

We'll send out a reminder on Facebook prior to those weekends as well as make adjustments to our calendar.

Thank you for your understanding as another group of yoga practitioners start their journey toward teacher certification.

Yoga Teacher Training Starts February 6

It isn't too late to sign up for the 2015 Yoga Teacher Training course.

If you've been on the fence about signing up for 2015 Yoga Teacher Training, read about the impact it had on recent graduate Judy Ryan, who teaches Hot Yoga Saturday mornings. Whether you want to teach or just deepen your own practice, taking the training can change your life in ways you might not imagine.

Judy Ryan in Side Crow
"Yoga teacher training changed my life by giving me confidence. Being forced to stand up in front of my peers and teach built my confidence. It became easier and easier throughout my training and  spilled over to my life in general. I'm so grateful for this. It also gave me a deeper understanding of anatomy, breath work, meditation and myself."

The next professional yoga teacher certification program starts February 6. This 200-hour, 10-month training is led by renowned naturopathic doctor Jaime Sanchez, of West-East Natural Healing.

The program takes place one weekend per month (Friday evening through Sunday). Students receive instruction that meets curriculum standards set by Yoga Alliance to become a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher. It includes detailed instruction on anatomy and physiology (including a visit to an anatomy lab at Logan College of Chiropractic), yogic philosophy, class instructional curriculum and practicum teaching, and one-on-one individualized instruction in a small-class setting.

Cost is $2,300. To register and arrange deposits and payments, contact Be Well Now at 462-3900. Scroll down our Special Events page for more details and specific dates for Yoga Teacher Training 2015.
