WHAT’S NEW THIS WINTER
NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS
We are now accepting applications for our next Yoga Teacher Training Program. Our program is not only for people who are interested in teaching yoga, but more importantly, it is perfect for anyone who is looking to deepen their own practice or who is looking for a personal growth opportunity. We offer two tracks: The first track is the actual Yoga Teacher Training which includes everything you need to become a Certified Yoga Teacher and allows you to Register with the Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level. The second track is called the Deepening Your Practice track. This is for people who are not necessarily interested in teaching yoga, but who want to use the training as a personal growth opportunity where they will learn more about yoga, its philosophy and practices, as well as themselves during the process. We are now accepting applications for our both tracks. The next program will begin in May. You may move through all of the Modules in order, or you can take up to three years to complete the Training on your own timeline. Please contact Stephanie if you or someone you know is interested and she will send a copy of the full syllabus for whichever track you are interested in as well as an application. Feel free to check out the YTT section of our website.
WINTER WEATHER PLAN
Winter is officially here so we want to remind everyone of our plan for classes if the weather is snowy or icy. There will be a message on our answering machine at the studio (717-533-8292) and we will put a message on our Facebook page if we are NOT having class. We will try to have these messages up at least 45 minutes before the start of class. So if you are wondering at all, just call in or check Facebook to be sure...we want everyone to be safe.
YOGA ON THE CORNER

RESTORATIVE YOGA CLASS
1st and 3rd Thursday Mornings &
2nd and 4th Wednesday Evenings
Come and join our Thursday morning and Wednesday evening Restorative Yoga classes taught by Sarah Monroy, RYT-200. Relaxation is the state in which there is no movement, no effort, and your brain is quiet. These Restorative classes are designed to do just that...they help to release deeply held tensions from your body and mind and allow you the opportunity to deeply relax. Props are used as a way to support your body as you relax into the poses. This class is an ongoing class which is held on the first and third Thursday mornings of every month from 10:30 am until noon and the second and fourth Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. The classes include breathing exercises (pranayama), restorative poses, relaxing music, and inspirational quotes and readings. It is suitable for all levels. This is a pay as you go class where the cost of each class is $20. Because this is a specialized class, which requires a lot of personalized attention, there is a limit of 8 people per class so if you are interested, please sign up in advance by emailing Sarah at email@example.com or call her at 717-512-2034.
TAPPING FOR RESISTING (LIFE) AND RECEIVING (RELAXATION)
Saturday, April 7 - 10:00 - 11:00 am. Please arrive by 9:55 am.
Class starts promptly at 10:00 am
You might be surprised how often we’re resisting life. If you assess your body right now, I bet you can find some kind of tension or tightness. Many times the thought of giving up "hard work" and struggle in favor of what feels good causes tension and anxiety. Where does this tightness come from? We’re struggling against something — perhaps we’re irritated by someone, frustrated by something, stressed or overwhelmed by all we have to do. Join Gigi Jantos for this targeted tapping class and learn a new tool for allowing and letting go. Missed the last tapping class? You can learn about it here. The cost is $20 and you can register with Stephanie at the studio.
