Hi Everyone, 

Happy New Year!

I am absolutely ecstatic about bringing an awesome community of people together over yoga, and am looking forward to helping you find a little extra balance in the new year. Whether you're a beginner, a veteran, or begrudgingly trying this out because you're a good friend, I thank you for being a part of Geek Yoga's earliest days! And for learning alongside with me as I complete my final 8 classes for certification :)  

Our first class is coming right up on Wednesday at 7pm at The Yoga Collective (on 29th between 6th and 7th). Feel free to drag bring a friend along too!

The next two January sessions are at 8pm on Thursday Jan. 12 and Jan. 19, then starting in February we will have a regularly scheduled day/time of Thursdays at 6pm. The schedule is listed in full on the website at

If you use Google Calendar and would like to view the entire schedule alongside your own, click here, then click on the small Google Calendar logo in the lower right-hand corner to add this to your calendars. 

I will likely send these emails once per month or quarter, and in addition to schedule notifcations, I will sprinkle in a short yoga tip and quote just for fun :). Let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to hopefully seeing you soon!



Hands On: Assists vs. Adjustments

Sometimes students feel they are doing something wrong when a teacher comes by to offer assistance; however, that is not always the case.

Adjustments are where the teacher helps with your mechanics by moving or adjusting a body part that may be out of alignment (for example, if you put your knee at risk by leaning it too far in during Warrior 2).

During an Assist, the teacher stays with you for a longer period of time, helping you move even more deeply into a pose. This can be an incredible way to expand beyond the stretch/twist/fold than you could do on your own.

Both are very helpful for giving you a visceral feel (beyond just verbal instruction) for what to aim for next time you do the posture. If you ever feel uncomfortable, in pain, or prefer not to be touched, definitely let the teacher know. Conversly, if you like what s/he is doing, feel free to ask for more pressure!

"Yoga class gives us a taste of a new way to be in the world, a new way of moving, a new way of responding to daily events and challenges. Eventually we want to bring more of what yoga has to offer into our daily lives."
