UNION/YOGA about town schedule Winter 2014


Namasté, dear yoga community, 
Welcome to 2014, my 25th year of UNION/YOGA.

This seems to be the year of the big snow and large winds in Northern Michigan. We're back once again, to our 6-month monochromatic color scheme; soft velvety shadow grays to charcoal black barks, steel-wool skies and no distinction between the white horizon and the white of day. 

I've enjoyed having the time to attend some local classes lately. What a gift to be continuing my yoga education with excellent teachers right here, at home. It's a wonderful thing to find kinship in the practice and social connection with like-minded souls. Field and I feel very warmed and happy to be a part of our great smiling local yoga community. We invite you to embrace the returning sun... and stay toasty, limber, open and expansive with yoga. 

I hope you will join me for yoga soon. All my classes are either YIN style, or YIN/YANG. 
YIN means slow, deep and receptive, inward-looking, cool opening with sustained releases, using breath to fall deeper into the pose introspectively. 
YANG means continual movement, outward turning, warm, aerobic, using breath to sustain the pace and quality of attention expansively. 
YIN/YANG means linking breath with movement beginning on the floor with YIN and moving into a standing aerobic flow before returning back to YIN for integration and release.
