Hello and Happy Fall!
What a great time to come into the warmth and exercise, especially before the holiday crush begins.
Speaking of the holidays, I thought I’d get our holiday schedule out to you early so that you can plan your practice. We’ll be holding classes as follows:
Thanksgiving: 8am and 10am (no 6, 9, 1, 4:30, 6:30)
Christmas Eve: 6am, 9am, 1pm (no 4:30, 6:30)
Christmas Day: 8am, 10am (no 6, 9, 1, 4:30, 6:30)
New Year’s Eve: 6am, 9am, 1pm (no 4:30, 6:30)
New Year’s Day: 8am, 10am (no 6, 9, 1, 4:30, 6:30)
Please note that for many of these holiday classes, the doors will be locked once class begins so please be on time.
Class Comments: Perfume & Cologne.
We’ve heard several comments about perfume as well as men’s cologne in the yoga room. We like a good scent as well as the next guy but as you know, yoga is all about breathing. While you may enjoy someone’s signature scent anywhere else, if you are struggling for breath in a tough class, that might not be what you’re hoping to deeply inhale. Please either don’t wear any on your practice days or wash it off before you come into class.
New Products Are Here!
Laurie was lucky enough to get an exclusive in Simsbury for the Mod Skin skincare line. Developed and made in East Granby, CT, this line is all natural, vegan, mostly locally-sourced, cruelty free and affordable. Best of all, Laurie’s been using it for about a year and it works really well (she’s actually 82 years old). Come on in and try it out.
We are also carrying Neti Pots with Celtic Sea Salt, the natural, drug-free way to clearer breathing and cold and flu prevention.
We have new “Rabbit Flap” Breathe Mats, which are a mat and towel all in one, with a special flap for Rabbit Pose. They are soft and easy to care for and come in some great colors.
We’ll soon be offering delicious and healthy food items from Chef Laura Solimano Christie for sale. She creates some incredible baked goods as well as meals. You’ll also be able to special order things to ease your holiday cooking! She is an expert in special needs diets, and all of the items we offer in the studio will be wheat-, gluten- and dairy-free.
We’ll also be adding things as the holidays approach so please think of us for your holiday shopping. What better gift than that of health and wellness? Gift Certificates are always available in any amount.
Thanks again for your overwhelming support during our first five months of business! I hope to see you in the studio soon.
