GRATITUDE & SPECIAL BLESSINGS (Thanksgiving Schedule and News) November 22, 2010

I feel a very unusual sensation – if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude. ~Benjamin Disraeli

Yep, that is definitely gratitude I am feeling as Thanksgiving week begins. (Hopefully, I will be just as certain of the distinction on Thursday.) I am grateful for the family and friends who have supported my yoga practice – as well as the family and friends who have become a part of my practice. Believe it or not, I am also very grateful that it snowed before my trip to Texas and (naturally) I am glad to be spending this week in Texas with my family and more friends.

While I am in Texas, some very special blessings (on and off the mat) have agreed to sub for me.

The Nokomis Yoga schedule will be as follows:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 23rd @ 12:00 PM (60 minutes with NANCY)
  • Tuesday, Nov. 24th @ 7:15 PM (75 minutes with ALEX)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 25th @ 4:30 PM (60 minutes – CANCELED)

MORE ON Alex Barrett: Alex’s interest in theater lead to the discovery of yoga while he was at college, where sun salutations were used as a centering exercise before rehearsals. After graduating, however, he and yoga took a hiatus. He rediscovered yoga years later at the advice of a friend who suggested it as an alternative to running. Since then, he has dived headfirst into practice. He is nearing completion of his 230 hour certification at the Yoga Center of Minneapolis and continues to learn something new every day.

Alex’s classes are a challenging blend of flowing and static poses, along with pranayama and meditation. He hopes to help you find more joy, balance, and flexibility on and off the mat.

MORE ON Nancy Poucher: Nancy Poucher is an Iyengar trained, flow influenced hatha yoga teacher. A student of yoga since 1992, Nancy studied with Kevin Durkin, receiving her RYT200 hours certificate from the wonderful Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja, Mexico. She has taught at Movement Arts studio and privately in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She continues her Iyengar training with Greg Anton, focusing on alignment in the summertime on Cape Cod. Winters incorporate a breath-oriented flow more suitable to the cold snowy months in Minnesota. Foremost, Nancy is a student of yoga and it is from her practice and experience that she teaches.
