Get ready, get set......go!

I will have to say that I am excited about the Saturday morning Yoga class that I will be teaching.

Hopefully in the next couple of days I will be able to post when the start date will be.  I am looking at Saturday, September 15th but nothing has been finalized yet.

9:30 - 11:30 am

I was thinking of calling the class "Kunda Yoga" just because there is a tendency to call the class something.  It isn't a new discipline just an approach.  Allowing the Yoga to fit the individual so that the practitioner can learn beyond the classroom.    

If you have a moment please read my essay on my other website (link to the left) in which I have written about my thoughts on Kunda Yoga.  

What I want to convey is a turning point in my Yoga teaching.  These classes are gifts not only for the student but the teacher as wll since the learning and teaching go both ways.  We all learn, don't we?  My focus as a teacher has always been to enable the student to practice at home through individual and detailed instruction.  By using these tools called Yoga the student is empowered mind, body and spirit healthy.  Now is the time to truly integrate many more of the gifts that Yoga has to offer.

Sounds interesting?  I hope so.  Two hours should give us enough time to allow for questions, individual instruction when needed, and a nice long restorative sequence at the end.

More to come!

New weekly Saturday morning class to start soon!

New Saturday class TBA.

Since the Moving from the Organs workshops and classes didn't seem to spark any interest, I have cancelled the rest of the series.  

Please note that I will be teaching a Saturday morning class very soon.  I am thinking that 9:30 am - 11:30 am will be a perfect slot for me.  Any takers?  :-)

My last Monday night class will be September 17th.  Two more opportunities to take a Monday night Yoga class with me this year.  I have animals that are in need my care and cannot get home in enough time to put them up before nightfall since the sun is currently setting earlier.  And go figure, my chickens do not want to be caged at 4 pm!

Please check back for more details on the Saturday morning classes.  

FYI:  Also, if no one shows for my Monday, September 10th class....then I may cancel one week early.  (I always encourage my students to check this blog prior to class.)

Have a great rest of your week!

P.S.  Here are some themes for each week.

Moving forward....

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for your patience during this long transition.

I just recently was in a car accident this last Tuesday afternoon.  I am fine.  The car is totaled.  I am still processing what happened, since I have never been in an accident like this before.  Thank you all for your kind words and prayers.  I truly feel very loved!

I am currently negotiating a contract to teach Yoga in Topeka. More to be announced shortly.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you all very soon!



Friday, May 11, 2012

Great news!!!!

A new location
where I can teach Yoga classes 
has been found.  
Negotiations are in the works.  
I will update this blog as I find out more.

Tentative schedule will probably look like this:

Mondays:  6 pm -7:30 pm
Thursdays:  1 pm - 2:30 pm

All levels welcome.

If you have never taken a 
Yoga class before 
or are not familiar 
with the Iyengar discipline, 
please email me 
so we can meet prior to class.

Look for free classes here
before the regular session starts.

Never a dull moment.....

Well, it looks like I will be spending more time out here in the country (darn it).  

I do still want to teach Yoga in Topeka or the surrounding areas.  If you have any possibilities, please email me.


I am at a loss.  I taught Yoga in Lawrence for around 12 years and lived in Lawrence for 20 years.  I don't have a lot of connections in Topeka so it has been difficult to secure a new Yoga studio.  I am sorry that the Potwin Presbyterian Church did not work out, but such is life.

I have really enjoyed being a Yoga teacher for the past 13 years.  I have met so many inspirational and amazing people.  

Take care and let us see what happens next.

Much love,

Free Topeka Yoga Classes!

If everything goes according to my plans, 
then I will start teaching Yoga again on May 7th. 
 Since I don't live in Topeka, please check this blog before class for cancellations.  
The cancellation will be posted at least an hour before class starts.
Thank you!

2 Free Yoga Classes

Monday, May 7th at 6 pm
Thursday, May 10th at 1 pm

Come early!  
The outside door is locked promptly before class begins.

**The free classes are general, all level classes.  If you have never taken a Yoga class before, please email me.  I will recommend that you come early so I can show you some Yoga basics.

If you are on medications or are seeing a doctor or physical therapist for any ailment or concern, please talk to them before taking a class.  I am happy to speak to any doctor or therapist about my classes but you should get their okay to attend a Yoga class first.

Regular classes start the week after.

Topeka Yoga Class Update!

Thank you all for your patience 
in this time of change.  

It looks like Yoga classes won't start 
until at least April 15th.

Gentle reminder:  Yoga classes that I teach supplement your practice at home.  Don't berate yourself, just start a home practice today.  It doesn't have to be 2 hours of asana for it to be your home practice.  Choose a pose that you like, maybe Utthita Trikonasana (extended triangle).  See what happens.  What is the residue that the pose leaves in your body?  Allow that residue to help you move onto the next pose.  Be open to your intuition and let it guide your practice.

See you soon, I promise.

Sorry I missed you!

Hi Everyone!

I am now moved out of the Align and Stretch Studio.  
Please check back for details on new location.

I will only be offering the punchcard 
so you should check out the new prices 
just to the right of this post.  
I think you will like!  

Also, if you only want to pay drop-in fees that option 
(with a lower price) is still available.  Yay!

Since I will be working at the farm, 
I will be only teaching two class per week in Topeka.  

Mondays:  6 pm - 7:30 pm
Thursdays:  1 pm - 2:30 pm

Thank you for your patience during this transition.  
I am very excited about the changes!


Thursday, March 22, 2012

Change is in the air.

Just a quick update. 

 I haven't signed a contract yet, but I have secured a new location 
to continue teaching my Yoga classes in Topeka!

I should know more concrete information within a week or two.  
Of course, as I learn more I will post updates here on my blog.

Once I have moved, I will be paring down my current class schedule 
for the spring and summer months.  
We all become busier in the out-of-doors 
and I need to focus on the farm during those active months.  

Since I don't want confuse you, 
I will post the new schedule once the room is secured.

I hope to see you all in Yoga class at Align and Stretch Studio 
(current location that I am moving out of) 
Saturday at 8:30 am.

All current classes are only $15.00 (that includes drop-ins).  

Yoga....what a great way to start the weekend!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me at:

I am needing to move out of Align and Stretch Studio 
and into a new location to teach Yoga by April 30th, 2012. 
Ideally, somewhere closer to Delia would be wonderful 
(Holton, Rossville and Silver Lake come to mind). 
I can still teach in Topeka, I just need a good Yoga-type room. 

All current Yoga students: 
You have two months to use up your punchcards. 
After that, you may pay $15.00 per class 
until Monday, April 30th.

Please email any questions or concerns to:
