Yoga Sanctuary's Open House & New Arrivals

So much exciting news at YS this Summer! First, a special welcome to our newest kula member Layla Grace and a welcome back to our director Sara Rose who gave birth to Layla back in February. This week both of them were back in the studio. Sara is now teaching her Friday morning class again as well as upcoming special workshops and heading up our exciting Teacher Training Program. It is so wonderful to have her inspirational teaching as the cornerstone of Yoga Sanctuary. Be sure and try to get to her class at 9:00am on Fridays - you'll be glad you did!

We are also welcoming back Sarah McAnulty who has a long history of teaching at Yoga Sanctuary. Sarah will be teaching the Level I/II class Tuesday mornings at 9:00am. She is a wonderful spirited teacher with a background in both Iyengar and Anusara yoga. We encourage you all to try her fun, invigorating classes this Summer.

Congratulations to our lovely Suzie Goldstein who is our new Yoga Advisor. Suzie will be guiding new as well as current students through the schedule and helping them find the best fit for their practice. Suzie is also a recent graduate of our YTT program and will be teaching our new YogaHour on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings. Now there is no excuse that you do not have the time to do yoga when there is always a YogaHour waiting for you!

The new Summer schedule is full of many new options such as the PowerHour with Abigail Clarke at 7:45am on Wednesday and Friday mornings - a great way to start your day. Abigail is a very creative teacher who brings a warmth and joyful approach to her classes. Her laugh is worth getting up early for! Karen Sheingold has a wonderful new class - Over Fifty which will encourage you to bring a spirited approach to your yoga practice. Join Karen on Tuesdays at 5:00pm for a thoughtful, fun and engaging class. The Summer schedule also includes all our well established classes with Amy Reed, Kendra Hodgson and janet Vecchia along with new offerings for the beginner with Lisa Leizman and Susan Elena Esquivel.

Just in time for the Summer, we are pleased to introduce our monthly Memberships. Why the membership option? Over the past few years we have watched so many of our students struggle with how to use their yoga budget. Many find they have to space out the classes they attend since they only have 8 classes on their class card. The benefits of yoga can not be fully appreciated with this limitation, so we decided to offer a new way for our students to build their practice and create more abundance in their lives.

What results can you expect from regular practice? On the mat, you will find increased focus, strength and flexibility, reduced pain and stiffness, as well as healing of injuries due to biomechanical misalignments. Even more important are the off the mat benefits of overall increased vitality, clarity and well-being as well as reduced stress. These are just a few of the benefits of a regular yoga practice, the possibilities are endless.

Membership at YS equals Freedom! No more class card blues - now you can attend any class, any time. This gives you the freedom to explore and try all the wonderful teachers and classes we offer, finding more options for yourself.

This Saturday, June 4th from 12 - 5pm we are pleased to hold an Open House where you can check out all that YS has to offer. We have free yoga classes throughout the afternoon so you can get a taste of the Summer schedule. We will also have special deals on the Membership options, snacks, great deals in the boutique and as if that is not enough we have an amazing Kirtan with HuDost at 7:30pm. for more details on the Open House visit:

Join us to celebrate and make this the best Summer ever!
