New Web Site and Meg’s Workshop
~ Meg Whitbread
Thanks for all of your patience while we institute some of these new changes at the studio. We’ve been analyzing and scrutinizing the data from the survey we sent out, and based on your feedback, the new schedule should commence next week. In the meantime, I cordially invite you to look at freretstyoga.com to see the layout of our new web site! I think you’ll find it a whole lot easier to navigate than our old site. For us it will be significantly easier to keep you posted on things like substitute teachers and special events.
Speaking of which, I am thrilled to announce this Sunday’s extended practice session: Introduction to Yamuna Body Rolling. “What in the Sam Hill is that?” Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) is an intelligent somatic modality that is all about creating and maintaining sustainability in one’s body. Based on principles similar to yoga and pilates, YBR helps students discover muscle imbalances and strengthen weaknesses in all areas of the body. You might have seen people rolling on physio balls or foam rollers to loosen muscles before athletic events. Many of you have experienced deep relief from similar work in Claiborne’s Yoga Tune Up classes. Well this practice is intended to be a self-massage/self-care love fest.
I plan on taking the class right along side you, as my dear friend and former boss in San Francisco will be doing the teaching. Meg Whitbread is travelling to New Orleans to share some of these techniques with us. In addition to being an outstanding massage therapist and meditation teacher, Meg is one of the most intuitive, light-hearted, down-to-earth people I’ve ever met. She’ll be teaching a couple of different sections in the Advanced Studies/Teacher Training Program that commences in a couple of weeks, and so I am quite proud to introduce her to the FSY community at large. If you’re looking for relief from nagging aches in your hips and legs, if you need a constructive rest day in your rigorous athletic training, or if you just feel like you’re stuck in a rut in your asana practice, then you will not want to miss out on this session.
As usual, the cost of the extended practice is $25, and since I’ve already claimed one spot for myself and there are only 15 sets of Yamuna props, you’ll want to reserve your space now. Let’s see if this fancy new web site works. Click here to pre-pay and pre-register.
Hope to see you soon!
