Yoga with Yasuni!

Our first-ever yoga class was a blast...that is, if total relaxation, deep stretching and yin poses are your thing. In a word, it was a great way to start a Saturday. Today's class, led by local instructor Kathy Greathouse, was part of a global "Yoga for Yasuni" day, organized by Amazon Watch, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting indigenous peoples of the Amazon River Basin. The goal of "Yoga for Yasuni" day is to increase awareness of the impending destruction of one of the planet's last, protected rainforests (Yasuni National Park) and disruption to the lives of indigenous tribes who inhabit it and have chosen to remain out of contact with the rest of society.

Argonaut science instructor (and Motivate client) Kelsi Himmel contacted me about hosting the class. I couldn't think of a single reason why not!

We're trying to put a yoga schedule together, so I need to hear from yoga devotees (or just yoga curious!) out there: What days and times work for you? What level are you? For those who already practice, which style of yoga would you like see offered? Drop me a note here in the comment section, or send me a note via Facebook (Motivate Personal Fitness Academy). There's always phone and email: or 406-8828.

Are you ready to feel great and be your best self? Reach out to me for more information about our individual and group fitness instruction. I'm here!
