.

I believe that everyone can find that Peace.

FAQ

How can I cultivate good energy doing yoga at home?

I generally encourage if at all possible don’t have your yoga space be in your bedroom, which as you know has the energy of sleep there more strongly than other locations, and in yoga, of course, we are trying to Wake Up! If you use an office space or space where there’s a computer or TV, covering those screens with something pretty at least for your practice time can make a surprisingly big difference in the quality of your practice. Appropriate lighting also can help create an ambience if you are practicing in the evening.

But…Yoga with my phone?

If you are joining on Zoom, you are, of course, using an electronic communication device. Remember, whatever the device, don’t answer any calls or texts or emails or whatever during your practice time; don’t check the news or stocks or whatever; no social media. You know. For that time, your device is just a “yoga prop,” nothing more, and is to be used ONLY for that purpose. You may know what I mean.

How does a by Donation studio work?

The donation requested is $10-20 per class; this IS NOT a cost! Please give what you can, whether on this scale or not. Money should never prevent anyone from coming as much as they want, and no one is ever turned away for financial reasons. From the blog: thoughts on donation yoga

How does being a Go Deep Member work?

Membership simply means you’ve signed the waiver.  Once you’ve signed the waiver, you’ll get a password to get you into the studio where you will find the Zoom meeting links.  You’ll also get the passcode for all of the Zoom classes. I recommend that you try to put your mat down on the ground and sit for a few minutes before class begins to center yourself.

Loving Kindness, the physical space, is closing

Building Energy in Your Home Yoga Practice

August 1-3, 2020 Well, y’all, it looks like we’re going to be doing the online, at-home classes for a while, even with the recent addition of some outside in-person classes, at least until we Americans decide that we need to kick the Covid. I’m infinitely thankful for...

Free Yoga? …or What It Means Offering Donation Yoga During Covid

May 25-28, 2020 This blog is specifically for those who are most economically effected by the lockdown.  Since the beginning of my teaching, as many of you know, I never wanted money to be what kept people from taking yoga classes with me.  That philosophy has been...

A HUGE “Thank You” for Ten Years of Donation Yoga!

April 11-14, 2020 OH, MY GOD!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  This week is ten whole years of me “running” a donation yoga studio.  (And on a side-note, our oldest son turns 18!)  Certainly I have done my work to keep this process going, but it seriously would not...
