We once again end the month with a powerful Full Moon – this time a pink full moon in Scorpio. It was named after the pink flowers that bloom in the early spring known as phlox. The moon’s energy affects our bodies, our moods, the oceans and lands and this particular full moon has the power to transform. Must be no coincidence I’ve been getting inspired to write!

Full-Moon-April-2017-665x435 This past month, right in line with this particular Full Moon, I’ve found myself contemplating relationships. I’ve been living on the East Coast for 12 years now and often find myself missing my friends from back home in CA. There’s nothing like being around people who just get you, where you come from, your roots. Yet, I have to remind myself that I’m not the same person I was years ago, not even 2 months ago! We are all continuously experiencing life and hopefully learning and growing. This is really the basis for the ebb and flow of relationships…whether blood, friendly, or romantic.

Last month, I talked about making changes in order to “Spring Clean” and let go of things or bad habits. I’ve been doing my self-work and in the process have realized something really important – change does not always equal transformation. Too often we confuse or misuse the two words. When we change things, we are focusing on the past. Transformation is about creating the future. We can change things all we want, but if we want things to truly be different, we have to dig deeper. We have to continue the work.700a4e66474e7e932f09b2cd9df9c192

One of the biggest challenges, however, can be the very people we are closest to who just don’t get it. It was a big fear of mine for a long time. Until just recently, I was scared of hearing the words, “You’ve changed” and it not be considered a good thing. I held on to the “old me” to please those who expected me to be or act a certain way, or for fear of losing a friend. However, in doing the work, I soon learned that I was allowing their fear of change to stand in the way of my transformation. While it still is a work in progress, understanding this simple concept has helped me immensely, not only to accept myself, but accept them.

Fortunately, for me, I not only have a strong core group of family and friends on the west coast, but I also have a beautiful, connected tribe of people right here and now that I love and appreciate very much. Over the years, as I’ve gone through growth and changes, I’ve seen growth and changes in my relationships with others too. The most important things that I’ve found is that while friends don’t always have to agree, understanding and respecting each other’s journeys are a must. Sharing values, not musical tastes, is what’s important. Letting go is sometimes important. Most of all, knowing that every person who has crossed my path, whether they stayed for a moment or have been here for years, has played an enormous part in who I was, who I am, and who I will be. I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue to meet some pretty amazing individuals through our yoga community. Thank you for being here. Thank you for being you.

Bhakti and Namaste,

~Daniella 979554f6d6f513c99adb63e3c0e91ab0

“I have come to regard November as the older, harder man’s October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer’s death as winter tightens its grip.” ~Henry Rollins

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” ~Oprah Winfrey

“That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.”
― Wallace Stegner, Angle of Repose

The workout was created to satisfy all levels of yoga and fitness, and can also be fulfilled without the 5 lb. weight. 

FREE DEMO on Saturday, Sept. 2nd 2017 @ 10am

Spry Yoga will be added to our Fall Schedule beginning in October!

schedule-change

We are so excited to bring you a new and improved schedule beginning the last week of September. Look for a few changes and a couple of new additions. As always, our Glofox scheduling platform will have the most current information and our Facebook page posts daily updates. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come…

Fridays: Our final Happy Hour of the Summer is on Sept. 1st. Happy Hour will break for a few weeks and be back at the end of the month with a new time of 5:30pm, taught in rotation by a few of our recent teacher training graduates. Cost is still $5 cash only, which will be donated to victims of Hurricane Harvey through Thanksgiving. Also coming to Fridays – Warm Flow at 9:30 am beginning 9/29.

Saturdays: Sat. morning classes are back with a new line-up! SPRY Yoga at 10am and a new Warm Flow class at 11:30am. Bi-weekly AcroYoga classes will also be added to Saturdays at 1pm. All this starts in October! 

Sundays: Our PiYo class is making a switch from Sunday mornings to Thursdays at 5:30pm! Our Sunday beginner class will remain and a prenatal yoga 6 week session will follow at 11:30am in October. Our Sunday evening restorative vinyasa class has been swapped out for a Warm Flow at 7pm starting Oct. 1st!

Mondays: Morning Warm Flow is making a comeback at 9:30am beginning 9/25! Our Mat Pilates will be moving up a bit to 5:30pm. Our 7pm and 8:30pm classes will remain.

Tuesdays: Our only change will be the beginner class moving up a bit to 5:30pm beginning 9/26.

Wednesdays: Quite a few changes mid-week! We are excited to now offer Chair Yoga at 10:30am beginning 9/27. Warm Power-Hatha at 5:30pm. All Levels Vinyasa Flow at 7pm and a Reiki-Restorative at 8:30pm. A little something for everyone on Wednesdays!

Thursdays: Our Gentle Flow class will be cancelled…last class will take place on 9/7. PiYo will take its place at 5:30pm. If you haven’t give it a try, don’t miss out on this fun fusion of Pilates, Yoga and cardio. Great workout! All other classes will remain the same, only will be adding a little heat to the 8:30pm class for a Warm Flow.

Hot Yoga: We are beyond ecstatic to announce that we are preparing to rip out the carpets in the downstairs studio and lay down a new hardwood floor…all to bring you some fun, new Hot Yoga Classes! They will take place at 5:30pm, Mon-Thurs. Our 7pm Hot Yoga classes will be moving a little to 7:15 pm to accommodate. All classes will be 1 hour and still $10 cash only, separate from the Main Level Studio. Class descriptions and instructors will be announced soon!

We hope you are as happy as we are with the changes! By offering a more consistent and uniformed schedule, we think it well help create a better flow both in the lobby and the studio rooms, as well as with parking. As always, should you have any feedback or questions for us, please don’t hesitate to email us at TwistedMonkeyYoga.com

Have you heard? 

  • PiYo class: Our 5 week series of PiYo just ended. However, Sunday class will continue and is now open to all members to use Glofox credits or a $10 drop-in for the next few weeks only. This fusion of Pilates moves and Yoga poses will help you gain strength and flexibility while toning and sculpting! Check out PiYo before committing to our next 5 week series.
  • Kids’ Yoga: Don’t forget that we now offer a weekly class for kids ages 5-10 on Thursdays at 4:45pm. Only $6 per child when you pre-book through our Glofox app or online scheduling platform. Yoga is quickly becoming a great way to keep our youth healthy, flexible and active. It’s never too early (or late!) to start yoga.    
  • Pre/PostNatal Yoga: Our 6 week series is coming to an end, but look out for our Spring session in April/May to be announced soon!
  • New Hot Yoga Class: Don’t forget that we now offer Hot Yoga on Sundays at 5:30pm with our newest instructor, Nina! Please note that Hot Yoga classes are separate from our Main Studio. $10 cash only.

  • Studio Yoga Mats: As we continue to make improvements to our studio, we would like to clarify that yoga mats are for the use of brand new members on their first visit. We ask that all students who try a class and plan to continue the practice of yoga, to invest in their own mat. This way you may choose the correct length, size and density to suit your individual needs. The downstairs Hot Yoga studio provides black yoga mats that are already placed down on the floor. You may place your own yoga mat on top for extra support. We ask that you please wipe down all mats after use. Do not roll up any studio mats that may still be wet, as this can become unsanitary. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
  • Lost and Found: If you have left behind a water bottle, yoga mat or other personal item, please make sure to check the yoga studio. Items not claimed by the end of each month will be recycled. There is a lost and found located in the hot yoga ladies’ changing room, as well as a cubby in the Main Studio or see an instructor. Thank you.
