I am happy to announce that I’m officially back teaching yoga at Life Time Folsom in 2019! I’ve been teaching in the LifePower Yoga Studio since the club first opened in April 2017 under the original management crew (Tom as the General Manager, Robin as the Studio Manager and Lisa as the Yoga Coordinator) and I was saddened at the turn of events that happened earlier this month that led to me teaching my last yoga class there on Friday, December 14th.
However, I received a phone call from Life Time Corporate Headquarters in Minnesota last Wednesday, December 19th with the wonderful news that all four of my yoga classes that I was teaching at Life Time Folsom were going to be reinstated! My Flow Guided class that I started as a brand new class in September 2017 (and have never missed teaching a single class in 15 months) will resume on Tuesday, January 8th and I’m very much looking forward to seeing all of my loyal regulars in class again. What an awesome way to begin 2019, which by the way is my year…the year of the boar! I’ll be back teaching Ashtanga on Friday, January 4th and the Root & Surrender to Be classes will begin with new earlier times on Sunday, January 6th.
If you have experienced one of my yoga nidra workshops, it is what I end the Surrender class with during the last 15 minutes (in lieu of the “Be” seated silent mediation portion). If you haven’t experienced yoga nidra, it is otherwise known as the “yoga of sleep” where you are comfortably supported by props laying on your back and I lead you through a guided meditation, including a body scan, breathing exercise and imagery visualizations. It is an excellent way to refresh and renew your mind, body and spirit as you wind down from weekend activities and prepare for the new week ahead!
Our Studio Manager Ginger has set this new earlier Surrender to Be time of 2:45-4:00pm in hopes that the class attendance numbers will increase enough to keep the class on the schedule. When the class was first added on September 23rd, it was from 4:45-6:00pm and perhaps the fact that there is no child care in the club available after 5:00pm may have been one of the reasons for its low attendance. So if you would like this class to remain on the schedule, please come and bring friends to all four Sunday Surrender to Be classes: 1/6, 1/13, 1/20 and 1/27!
Here is my Life Time Folsom yoga class schedule for January 2019:
- 1:30-2:30pm ROOT
- 2:45-4:00pm SURRENDER to BE (Yin + Yoga Nidra)
- 5:30-6:30am FLOW Guided (Heated)
- 5:30-6:30am Ashtanga Vinyasa
