This class is a great way to take care of yourself, bond with your baby, and meet other moms!
Join my good friend and yoga teacher Kate for a morning of yoga and essential oils.
Essential oils have been used throughout yoga’s history, primarily in reference to yoga’s ayurvedic science. The benefits of essentials oils are vast including supporting your emotional needs, immune system, and physical health. Come and experience the benefits of pairing essential oils with your yoga practice.
A brief introduction of essential oils will be followed by a 75 minute meditative posture yoga class highlighting 6 different essential oils. Participants will be invited to experience selected essential oils aromatically, topically, and internally.
All participants will receive a Home Oil Practice bag with samples of selected oils distributed in class along with detailed information about how to use each oil at home. * Please bring a glass or stainless steel water bottle (optional).
June 13th 10:30a.m.-12:30p.m.
RSVP by June 10th email@example.com or 678-617-0313
Mommy & Me yoga is a fun way to take care of your body while enjoying quality time with your baby and other moms. You are more than welcome to bring extra blankets, stuffed animals, or anything that might make your baby happy. All yoga props are provided for you.
In a mommy and me class participants will move through a series of poses in which they 'use' their child as a prop or added weight. Babies make great yoga props!
$10 per mom. All ages of children are welcome.
Remember back in February, where I pledged to write at least every 2 weeks about something that was going on in my life as a yogateacherstudentmomwifefriendhuman? And then I posted a week early? And we all thought "By George, I think she's got it"..... And then I DID NOT POST AGAIN UNITL RIGHT NOW......
Maybe you do. Maybe you don't. Whatever, it's cool. If you don't remember that means you weren't reading and now you are so, yay. If you do remember then you missed me so...yay!
I do have an excuse. I did write a blog post about taking care of yourself. And then because computers hate me it got deleted. And I felt terribly sorry for myself.
That blog post in a nutshell was: take care of yourself, because if you don't no one else will think it is important either. Then I went on to tell you about all the ways I take care of myself. And I confessed that I usually don't take care of myself, for months on end and then I binge on self care. For example I went 6 months without any kind of real care, then in one week, I got a massage, pedicure, went to the acupuncturist and chiropractor. It was a good week. Seriously though, ain't nobody got time for that every week. not to mention the money. (it ain't about the money, money, money....Shut up Jesse J. it is too' (I only know that song from the movie Pitch Perfect and I only know who sings it cause my 14 year old told me and now it's stuck in my head)
So anyway, what you need to know about taking care of yourself is this. Do it. It doesn't have to cost you a dime. But, and please don't cry..... binge watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix does not count.
Especially for my Gainesville People a list of who I use:

... This is a test of these time slots. But I fully expect to keep them both. Invite your friends. Especially high schoolers and middle schoolers. That 4:30 time slot is perfect for them.
Think about how much you could have benefited from a yoga practice at 13, 15 or 18. ( student rate $8)
Come one! Come all!!

Two quotes I can’t seem to keep out of my mind:
"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured." BKS Iyengar
"Yoga is an internal process, all the rest is a circus" K. Pattabhi Jois
In this room today we are all practicing yoga, we are enduring what cannot be cured and our process is internal...although it is certainly not without it's circus moments. Because, that is the truth of life and of death; it is rarely easy, clean or uncomplicated. It is often confusing, complicated and messy.

No, these are not my lottery numbers, but maybe they should be. September has always been a big month in our family but this year seems bigger. I don't exactly know why. I will both attempt to understand and to explain myself. Full disclosure: This post may be a complete waste of your time.
7: On the 7th of September 18 years ago, I married my best friend, my youthful peter pan of a man in a simple, sweet, outdoor ceremony on a little piece of heaven just north of Gainesville. I wore my mothers wedding dress and his father performed the ceremony. My guests sat and melted in the late afternoon sun on one of the hottest days of the year. We quenched our thirst with homebrew beer and BBQ while we cooled our feet in the river. It was a wonderful day. 18 years, honey and here is to way more than 18 more.
14: September 14th is my quirky, independent, and feisty youngest daughter's birthday. It is also my father in laws birthday. A man so kind, so wise and so stubborn that he gives you hope that our flawed human race can survive. He may get his very own blog post someday, but not today.
26: MY BIRTHDAY!!! I will be 40 this year. I am not sure I can convey how excited this makes me. 40...the big 4 0...over the hill, long in the tooth. I will finally be 40. Let me attempt to explain my excitement. I am the youngest of 8 kids, THE BABY....I am married to a man several years older than me...Being 40 means that I am no longer the baby, I am no longer too young for Larry. Or maybe I am, but at 40 I don't have to give a s*%t---right?
So, I think that's it isn't it? At 40, I don't have to give a s*%t anymore. I don't have to worry what anyone thinks of me. Right? RIGHT?
Except, I will, and I do, and to some extent I always will. But maybe, just maybe being 40 will give me the guts to just not care so much.
Some thoughts on perspective and how it can affect your level of happiness. We had to leave before 6:00am to make it to Catie's treatment. Raise your hand if you like getting up that early. Raise your hand again if taking your small child to be treated for a chronic illness is fun for you. ( I did not raise my hand either time, in case you were wondering). HOWEVER! We had zero traffic. We made it in under an hour. Speed limit trip the whole way...unheard of. So we stopped for breakfast and enjoyed fresh squeezed OJ. Then, because we still had an hour, we took a walk along a very pretty little path around the King and Queen buildings. Now, I'm sitting and waiting the 2 1/2 hours this treatment takes in an extremely comfortable chair and getting ready to read my book. I'm not suggesting that choosing happiness made the traffic easy or this chair more comfortable. But it might have.
Just a yoga teacher. Doing my thing.
