I hope your July has been super fun! Can you believe that next week is August already?!?!? It felt so great to be back with you on the mat on Monday night after a chaotic and busy 2 weeks. I definitely needed to ground myself and reconnect with you and my yoga roots.
There's a bunch of stuff in here, so I won't hesitate any longer. Let's get to it!
First, there is a NEW coffee shop a few doors up from the Art Center, Hope & Coffee. This coffee shop is run by recovering addicts that want to create a safe space for the locals to hang out, drink coffee, socialize and snack on their featured baked goodies. So awesome! Here is a quick word from the benefactor.
"HOPE & COFFEE WILL BE A PLACE WHERE WE CAN REMEMBER THOSE WE’VE LOVED AND CARED ABOUT WHO WERE LOST TO THEIR ADDICTIONS. AND… A PLACE WHERE WE CAN CELEBRATE THE RECOVERY OF THOSE WHO EMBRACE IT."
— Lisa Jane Scheller
Here are the current business hours. The website says they will be extending their hours in Aug so check their site frequently to stay updated.
Mon - Fri - 6:30 am - 5 pm
Sat & Sun - 8 am - 3 pm

Please consider donating and/or supporting this great local business.
Secondly, one of our fellow yogis Jessica Estremera, is putting together a team for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Walk. This is an excellent cause and I encourage you all to consider supporting this event.

Sep 8th is the walk date if you'd like to join her team. Also, there are shirts available for purchase. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to her on Facebook or email her here --> Jestremera08@gmail.com
I love hearing about what everyone is doing. If you are involved in a fundraiser or a benefit and would like some help spreading the word, let me know and I’ll email our yoga peeps about. I am happy to help!
Lastly, I have a surprise for all of you!!!! YAY!!!
August marks my 5 year anniversary of teaching yoga! Say what?!?!
In order to celebrate I wanted to offer all of you, my students that I love and adore, a few sweet deals.
August 13th I will be offering our regularly scheduled Monday evening class for $5 drop-in price!
For the entire month of August, 5 class passes will be on sale for $40, regularly $45.
When I first entered into yoga teacher training I wasn't sure that I'd ever teach for real. It was a dream that I had for many years but I didn't know if I'd be any good or if people would come to my class.
Here I am, 5 years later and still on my mat guiding you through postures and having laughs with you. Your love and support allows me to continue on this path that I cherish so deeply and it warms my heart.
Thank you, all of you, so so much. I couldn't do it without you!
Much love to you all. I hope to see you on you mats soon.
Enjoy the remainder of July!
