December Newsletter

December Newsletter


The mornings are colder than normal and the nights are arriving earlier. It's that time of the year: holiday season is coming! Our bodies are craving the healing power of our infrared heat and we hope you give yourself the gift of YoBa this holiday season.

Let's try to approach the holidays with awareness.

What is your intention? Instead of gifting your friends/family with their favorite candle what if you shared your love for movement and mindfulness with him or her. What if you thought of gifts such as human connection, community, movement, and mindful breath work? All things that we can take from the studio and incorporate throughout our hectic lives. It's the season of giving, so why not share something you love with someone you love?

Let's change our perspective this season. For example, when preparing a holiday meal, rather than setting the intention of having perfect food on the table, maybe this time the intention can be just to be with our family and friends with no expectations of the outcome. 

Let's live less out of habit. and more out of intent. Let's bring people together, share our stories, laugh lots, give hugs and warmth all season long. We hope to see you around the studio sharing your light!

YoBa Yoga Fundamentals Series - Sun Salutation A

Sunday, December 2nd from 3:00pm - 4:15pm

Designed for students who are new to yoga and for those who are looking to gain a deeper understanding of the fundamental philosophy and foundational poses that yoga is built upon. Combining discussion, demonstration and practice, this will introduce you to yoga practice at a leisurely pace, step-by-step, with more in-depth alignment instruction than you will receive in a regular yoga class. We will dive into yogic breathing techniques and get a taste of the most frequently encountered yoga poses, with an opportunity to ask questions. You'll leave with a better understanding of how to safely practice different postures, and more importantly, learn how to practice poses CORRECTLY which will support your body for years to come. Every month will have a different part of the yoga flow as a focus, this month we will be breaking down Sun Salutation A in particular. Held in a NON-HEATED room.

YoBi of the Month - William White
"My sister talked me into giving hot yoga a try about a year ago and I had no idea what I was doing or what I was getting myself into. I didn't really know what yoga was and had never done an exercise class before. By the luck of the draw I gave it a whirl with a Hot Flow class on a Friday morning at 6am with Kelsey and I think I've been to close to a hundred classes since that day. Like anyone would've been I was nervous at first but the positive environment at YoBa is so contagious that I felt like I was part of the community instantly. The YoBa Team is constantly encouraging you to just be proud of yourself for showing up, making sure everyone gets whatever they want or need out of each class. There are no expectations, there is no pressure. No matter how hectic or unpredictable my days or weeks might be, I am always able to count on an opportunity to slow down and just breathe when I show up at YoBa."
Join us this Saturday, December 1st from 10am - 2pm for 
The Holiday Market at Quail Corners
Lady YoBi wishes you all a very Merry Christmas,
Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year to you and yours!
From the YoBa Team to You...
