This is taught by kinkster Conni. It's a great class; she works with everyone (including non-beginners as well as those with physical limitations)   :-)  -- Lance


Level 1 Beginner’s Yoga for Every-Body

Tuesdays
January 16 – March 6

No partner or experience required. Absolute beginners to intermediates.
Everybody welcome!**

Join us for an ongoing exploration of asanas (yoga postures), meditation andyogic philosophy. This series of gentle yoga explores our relationships with self and others. Recent research has shown that not only are human beings inherently social creatures, our very health and longevity may depend upon our social ties. It turns out that those of us who are connected by loving relationships with others are more likely to live longer lives significantly less filled with the deleterious effects of heart disease, cancer and depression. Each class will explore what this means individually and in the larger societal context.

This class is open to all genders and orientations 18 and over.

Please bring your own mat, plus a towel, blanket or cushion.

Drop-ins welcome.

Series registration must be purchased BEFORE January 16 to receive the discount.

I know this is late, but I want to say thanks to everyone who made the leather picnic happen this weekend, which is everybody who attended. :-)

A number of folks pitched in even more, including Stephanie (who Iran into early on, trying to remember where the site was!) and Wyatt and Mikey and Laurie (wow, so much stuff!!) and Marko (who helped a lot with hanging signs, vital component that they were).

It wasn't quite as hot this year, so we didn't do water play, but there was a whole lot o' talking and eating and drinking going on. We all enjoyed the shade the site offered. I was pleased the limoncella Wyatt and I made was truly appreciated by a number of folks. :-) It was amazing how many cars we packed into the tiny parking lot - and at least four were Prius'! SJ leather is environmentally conscious (and yes I did haul all those cans and plastic home to recycle), yea us.

I think a good time was had by all. It was really wonderful to see folks from so many sub-communities attending and having a good time.

Thanks.

The series price is a great rate for yoga for the Bay Area and I am pleased to work with the Billy DeFrank Center to be able to keep it lower for all of you, other local classes are $12 to $18 for series and drop-ins.

I am now also teaching a Gentle Yoga Class for Women on Thursday evenings 7:30 -9 at a new yoga studio in Los Gatos. Bare Yoga - "Experience the Essence"  (not naked :-!! ) has a grand opening special 30 days for $30,and this is for any classes so if you know of anyone who may be interested please pass on the information or give them my email!

And, I am asking for any suggestions on how I can make the classes even better for you so if you have ideas or thoughts, please share them! As always, constructive criticism is welcome so that I can become the best teacher I can be for you and other students.

Lastly, NO Class on May Day  ~  I'll be celebrating this Pagan sexy sensual wild rite of spring in my own way!!!   I invite you to find a way to create your own celebration with a friend (s) or lover (s) !

Namaste' and see you soon
Conni
