It’s Chilly In Florida

Thanks to our “tough” Yogis for showing up over the last cold days we had. 
If you wonder how that works, here is the answer.
We all dress in layers and warmer than usual. Cold day classes are little more  vigorous with the addition of some “aerobic” exercises to get and keep us warm. We also include a share of our usual and so important stretches, balances and more.  
More often than not, the sun comes out and warms us up. 
The air is crisp and fresh and students often say they feel even more invigorated doing Yoga on a cold day.
No cancellation for cold weather, your teachers will be there regardless of  the temperature.*

“I can’t even reach my toes.”

Hearing this is troubling because yoga seems to have a reputation to be only for the already fit, limber, slim and healthy. This is absolutely not the case. Yoga is an exercise routine that makes everyone feel better, as long as it is done with a good warm up and within your abilities.
Weight or inflexibility is not a problem, nor is it a problem if one can’t balance on one leg very well or even not at all. We have students in our classes with a variety of ailments, young, old and very old. Yoga makes them feel stronger, better and yoga lessens their pain.
When you come to a class, introduce yourself to the teacher, share your concerns, hear their feedback and enjoy the experience.
