Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God.
- Krishmacharya, Father of Hatha Yoga
EVENTS and WORKSHOPS
The studio specializes in Hatha yoga classes. Brenda believes yoga is accessible to everyone, so Yoga Magnolia offers classes that are safe and tailored to your needs. But the classes will bring you out of your comfort zone! Practicing yoga offers you an opportunity to explore your balance, stretch deeply, relieve sore muscles, establish a strong connection with the breath and enhance mindfulness. The classes are small, so there’s plenty of individual attention. Props and modifications are readily given if you so desire. Men and women, of all ages, make up the student population. Some new teachers will be coming on board in 2017, so this is very exciting news!
We organized a road trip to Triangle Yoga for aerial yoga on April 22. Eight yogis from the studio signed up quickly. Thank you Triangle Yoga!
Last summer, we had a poetry reading, by one of our own yogis, Robin. Her new book was just published and is now available on Amazon, "Tap." Copies of the book are also available at the studio for $8. Please support our local artists!!
Yoga Magnolia also holds a Weight Loss Workshop on Mondays (six sessions). The focus is on nutrition counseling, daily movement and reducing stress. (Usually Monday evenings at 6 p.m.) Stay tuned for the next Workshop.
The January Workshop was a huge success. We had 15 participants for self-defense with Chris and Justin, then a two-hour afternoon session on Feng Shui. Susanna did a "smudging." Past Yoga Magnolia’s Workshops featured a Naturopathic Doctor (Trey), Reiki Master (Terry), Meditation Specialist (Martha).
Paddleboard Yoga in Little Washington takes place on July 29. There are no more spots available, but if you have your own paddleboard you are welcome to join us.
