Last night I did a class for a college sorority. A friend of mine is the advisor and thought it would be good for them. So I had to set up the studio for a crowd. I put down 19 mats with blankets under them for added cushioning on the hardwood floor. Then I sat … Continue reading The Era of the Mat Sandwich Ends

It's nice. I approve. But I could never get into … Continue reading Spring Decorations
A week from today the Yoga Challenge begins. Yikes! I've been collecting registrations and trying to figure out how many mats will fit, and if I need any more stuff to make the experience better for the participants. Today I went to the studio and moved all the props into the lounge in "stage one" … Continue reading Yoga Challenge Preparations
