Dear Friends,

Happy March! We have almost made it to springtime. I have always found this time of year to be especially dreary as the excitement of winter's snow has waned and the peacefulness of being curled up inside a cozy home has, well, become a bit old. And those tender green shoots of spring are no where to be seen yet though I have heard birdsong every day now. Our yoga practice invites us to align with nature and so as the ground thaws we too feel the need to soften, loosen winter's tightening effects in our bodies, and to find rejuvenation.

After last year's cascades of change and dissolution I welcome this year of gentle growth, of nurturing our beautiful community, of seeing what fresh shoots are heading up and out of the deep dark soil of creativity. At Yoga Sanctuary renewal can be found in our many workshop offerings- from  healing restorative yoga and aromatherapy to the beautiful complements of yoga and writing being offered in 3 different springtime workshops, to our incredible Anatomy and Yoga Therapy Training offered by Martin Kirk this May. Check out the amazing offerings we have put together for you and join us sometime! We have Family Yoga coming up, Yoga and Bodywork, Core Strength.... a positively dreamy line up of new offerings to uplift you and your yoga practice after a long winter. Full descriptions can be found on our website-

We welcome you to attend the workshops that call to you, to try a new class or teacher at YS  just to shake up your habits and bring a fresh perspective to your practice. We are delighted to welcome Molly Kitchen back to YS after her winter away ... she will be teaching the Tuesday and Thursday 7:15pm Flow classes. We're so glad to have her back.

We have something for everyone in our weekly classes, from Intro to Yoga (our most basic), Gentle, Mixed level classes, to the Level 2 and Advanced Practices. I am personally delighted to be offering more times for Private Sessions ( to schedule), and am beginning to plan the Immersion/Teacher Training for FAll 2013.
Good things are ahead!

Some of you have asked about the future of YS. While I am still hoping for a change in my administrative role in order to serve more fully as a teacher and teacher trainer, I am committed to keeping this amazing sanctuary going. It is a vibrant and beautiful place... thanks to all of you! I do have a wonderful new assistant, Toni Dube, who you will likely meet in the coming weeks. I wish her a warm welcome!

One of my many hopes for this spring is to connect with our community via the blog more frequently. It's, ah, been a while I know. I might possibly over-mention this... but the two cute little girls in my house sure do keep me busy...

Hope to see you on the mat soon.

With Warmth and Gratitude,
Sara Rose and all the YS teachers (Kendra, Lisa, Sarah, Tara, Brittany, Heidi, Ellie, Khalila, Abigail & Molly)
