Dear Friends & Yogis,

An update on in-person classes coming up!


I hope the early days of Spring are lifting your spirits and feeding your desire to move your body, connect more with Nature and each other.  I CANNOT WAIT to see you in person when our classes begin in May!

I could not resist including this picture of my grandson, Ashton James, taken on Sunday as he and his parents romped in a field of daffodils.  His joy at the simplest things cracks my heart wide open and helps me to take pause, allow the heaviness of life to fall away and welcome the magical sweetness of what is right in front of me.

Helping you re-establish your yoga practice will be one of my great pleasures as the days grow warmer and we are together once again. 

Here is info about TSC yoga coming up:

Yoga for All at the Norman Bird Sanctuary: Wednesdays and Saturdays at 9:30AM will begin June 5th and run through September.  I will also offer Full Moon Yoga there June 25th, July 23rd, August 23rd and Sept 20th.

Yoga for All at Common Fence Point Thursdays 9:30AM begins May 13th.  I am hoping Monday night Gentle Yoga at 6:00PM will start at CFP not long after that.

Gentle Community Yoga at Third Beach - PLEASE JOIN ME IN PRAYING THAT MY PERMIT WITH THE TOWN OF MIDDLETOWN GETS APPROVED.  I believe there is a hearing about all beach exercise use on April 19th.  I have been teaching on Third Beach for 12 years and hope to continue indefinitely!


Provided my permit is approved, it is my hope to start yoga on the beach in mid May, weather permitting. I will send out another email with details on the full Spring/Summer schedule, how to register for classes, which classes will also have a Zoom option so you can practice from home, which other teachers from TSC will be outdoors with me etc.

Zoom Yoga Schedule for April:
Gentle Yoga, Mondays, April 12, 19, 26
Yin Yoga Thursdays, April 22, 29
