WELCOME BACK BEAUTIFUL YOGIS
At the age of 13, I had the incredible honor of attending the inauguration of William Clinton.  This was not my first presidential inaugural event, nor was I a stranger to DC and US politics, yet this event forever altered me.    It remains a memory I will cherish, a change I relish and an influence Ive appreciated and carried with me ever since.  

I didn’t know who Maya Angelou was, but on that very, very cold morning on January 20th 1993, I was introduced to her, her wise voice, her fight and her hope.  Hearing, live, for the first time, On the Pulse of Morning, forever shaped me.  It awoke a love of words and imagery in me.  In ignited my passion for all things art-poetry, painting, writing and dance.    It inspired me to read…ALL OF HER WORKS and eventually to (at age 14) have the courage to reach out and contact her and have a beautiful and empowering conversation over the phone, about writing, bravery, life and womanhood.   

For 22 years Ive carried this poem around the world with me-as it always provides me with the perspective, hope and inspiration needed.   Ive dreamed of choreographing a movement piece to this life altering work.  This piece and Maya’s influence over me is THE REASON I started my TRIBUTE YOGA classes.  

I am actually terrified to honor her today, because -how can I possibly do her justice…but I will try. We will try.  
Join me at 4:00 for a TRIBUTE TO MAYA ANGELOU & ESPECIALLY ON THE PULSE OF MORNING.  Come as you are.  Mats provided. Message for details.  
OM SHANTI SHANTI SHANTI

Sweet Yogis
Tomorrow’s Hatha Class is a Tribute to Green Tara (Syamatara, Sgrol-ljang),  goddess of enlightenment, of art and of wisdom. Filled with vigor, she is the goddess of activity. 
She is the fiercer form of Tara, but is still a savior-goddess of compassion. She is seen as the original Tara.  Strong in spirit and a guru for others. Truly an inspiring force and guiding light.
   

Our practice will be a SLOW FLOW grounding the root chakra and brightening the spirit with 2 powerful Buddhist Mantras: Om Mani Padme Hum and Om Tare Tut Tare Ture Svaha.

Come as you are.  Mats Provided.  Starts at Cotopaxi Academy at 3:45 in room B28.  Please let me know if you will be joining us.-I do hope so!!!  
AND YES, BOTH Saturday Yoga  CLASSES ARE ON!!!! 
With Metta

Dear Yogis and Friends
Im happy to announce our next Yoga ReTREAT at Sasha Ji on May 22nd-May 24th.  

Based on both feedback and experience we have modified this weekend to enhance the experience and maximize your time and relaxation.  

This ReTREAT dubbed ‘re-nU’, will focus of rejuvenating and renewing mantras, asanas, and meditations to prepare all of us for the upcoming summer as well as the general transitions and changes we are all experiencing.  This is a perfect opportunity to reshape yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually before you set sail onto new adventures (moves, vacations, endeavors, etc.).  

We are opening up the rooming options as well.  This retreat will cater towards private and double occupancies (if there is a group of 3 people who want to save some money and room together please contact me).  We need all 8 rooms booked to make this retreat happen, and we will need to confirm soon.  PLEASE let me know if you are definitely in or NOT, or are on the fence, so I can gauge our approximate numbers.  

The price is ALL Inclusive: 2 nights accommodations, organic and local vegetarian meals, and transportation to and from Quito, a CD of Mantras/Yogi Music,  a clean eating Cookbook, a variety of yoga (hatha, core flow, vinyasa, restorative), guided meditations, reiki, Thai massage, and green juice.  

Private Accommodations 400USD
Double Accommodations 300USD

SAVE 10% IF YOU PAY IN FULL NOW THROUGH MARCH 26th 2015.  Payments in cash, local check or Paypal accepted.

VIVA MEXICO!!!!

Yogis, Friends and Aspiring Luchadors,
Join me for a Tribute Vinyasa Class to MEXICO, this Saturday at 1:30-3:00pm (a special time).  
   
How could I NOT pay homage to MEXICO?!  I became both a yogi and a yoga teacher in Mexico.
Ive met some of the greatest people alive today in Mexico (and mostly all women).
I literally both lost and gained parts of my soul in Mexico.  I hope not only to die there but for my ashes to rest in Tulum.  

I hope you join us!  Message for directions.  Come as you are, mats provided.  Luchador masks encouraged!
(and it goes without saying there’s no Saturday school in Mexico) VIVE

VIVE
Jessyca
