What style is UNION/YOGA? 
UNION/YOGA is an energy-based therapeutic style evolved over the past 4 decades from my interest in yoga and the psychology of wellness, or psychoneuroimmunology. Yoga recognizes the body's wellbeing as an outpouring of other, more subtle personal realms including emotions, beliefs and state of mind. UNION/YOGA is a practice by which we use the physical body to engage with and align other parts of being, bringing balance and happiness as is then reflected in the physical self.

UNION/YOGA 2014 Winter Schedule 
 Tuesdays 4:00-5:30 PM  YIN/YANG YOGA at the Suttons Bay Friendship Center (a.k.a. Suttons Bay/Bingham Senior Center 231-271-4630). 
 Wednesdays 12 noon-1 PM  YIN/YANG at Shanti School of Yoga (Logan's Landing, 2074 S Airport Rd W, Traverse City, MI 49686 231-632-0615).
 Wednesdays 4:15-5:15 PM  YIN/YANG at Shanti School of Yoga (Logan's Landing, 2074 S Airport Rd W, Traverse City, MI 49686 231-632-0615).
 Thursdays 8:30-10:00 AM  YIN YOGA at the Suttons Bay Friendship Center (a.k.a. Suttons Bay/Bingham Senior Center 231-271-4630). 
 Fridays at 8:30-10:00 AM  YIN YOGA at the Leland Old Art Building (a.k.a. Leelanau Community Cultural Center 231-256-2131). 

How do you know if classes are cancelled? In the case of inclement weather, I follow the school closings for that town. If the local school is closed due to weather, there will be no class. What's the point of white-knuckling it all the way? And, anyway, I want us all to be safe.


What does it cost? Classes in Leelanau County (Suttons Bay or Leland) may be attended as a walk-in for $15 per class, or purchase a 10-class pass for $125. The Suttons Bay "after school" class has a bonus deal: parent and teen $15 for both, and teens w/o a parent $10. Shanti School of Yoga in Traverse City sign ups online (how cool is that?) at http://shantischoolofyoga.net/

Namasté and love. I look forward to seeing you on the mat.
