Special Yoga Stuff this Month

December De-stress
Workshop at Karma Yoga this Saturday
Dec. 6 --2:15-5:30pm
We will be looking at what makes us anxious and stressed during the start to winter/holiday season, and then yoga-ing it out!  :)  We will be going over triangle poses such as intense side stretch and twisting triangle.  Then some inversions such as tripod and headstand.  And finish off into hip openers such as half pigeon and frog.  We'll take time to get warm and practice, go over alignment, and most of all go inward to journal and meditate a bit.  We'll have one break for tea in the middle as well.  
It's drop-in, so if you've got nothing else going on this Saturday, then I'd love to see you!  
Karma is at 1120 Mass. Ave in Cambridge, just outside of Harvard Sq.  

Free Winter Solstice Class
Dec. 19  7-8:30pm
Shobu Aikido Studio, 34 Allen St. 
Union Sq., Somerville
This will be a special candle-lit class that I will be holding to celebrate the start to the winter season, but also just share my spirit and love with you all.  It will be a free class, so especially if you've never done yoga before...I encourage you to come and check it out.  It will be full of peace, offering each of our peaceful intentions up and out into the world.  

Tuesday, Dec. 16th
Karma Yoga Studio, Cambridge
7:15-8:30pm Vinyasa Flow all levels Class
*This night class will be a special one.  In honor of the holiday season, this will be a donation class for the animal shelter that Doina & Jesse (the owners of Karma Yoga) have started.  Anyone that comes to Karma probably knows of Doina's amazing animal rescue efforts and the shelter she's putting together is such a great cause.  All of my earnings for the night will go towards the shelter, and then if you would like to donate something, then that'd be great!  We'll yoga for the animals.  And then stay after class for a vegan potluck!  Feel free to bring a vegan dish, appetizer, snack, drink, or dessert to share with your fellow students in some holiday cheer.   

*And my Winter Yoga Utopia Retreat to the Caribbean island of Dominica still has open slots!  Jan. 24-31st, come treat yourself to a healing, rejuvenating, and joyful adventure with me.  Check out www.tropicalescapes.biz, and go to the retreat section to click on mine and find out all the details.  I can also hook you up with a $100 coupon discount and offer you flight advice.  Just shoot me an e-mail at jpyogini@gmail.com.  :)
