taking it easy

the labor day weekend officially starts friday afternoon; it's when most desk-bound workers will quietly sneak out of the office after lunch to get a head start on their weekend plans... even if those plans merely involve staying home, firing up the barbecue, and grilling leftover veggieburger patties from their 4th of july holiday picnics.

if you're one of those whose holiday weekend plans revolve around a relaxing staycation, how about finding the time to take a yoga class near you? thanks to many teachers who will be "laboring" to make sure that yogis like you and me get our yoga fix, a number of yoga studios will be open for business. so stop by!

anyway, in observance of the labor-free theme, i've intentionally tried to labor as little as possible to compile this list (in other words, if i didn't get the studio schedule update by email nor spotted it on facebook, chances are that you won't see it here).

sometimes lazy is good, especially on holiday weekends :)

Labor Day Class: Expanding into Your Excellence with Tej
Cost: $25
We all have a destiny we have been given to grow towards, and we all have an inner calling that reflects a bright and beautiful ray of light of the Infinite. That inner connection can become so bright & peaceful that you can wake up another person just with your glow. When your own Vastness is awakened in you, your presence will speak. As the consciousness is elevated, we are given the courage, organization and one pointedness to find our direction. With the help of Kundalini Yoga and Deep Meditation, we can decide how the next chapter of our lives will look, and move towards our own Greatness.
Join us as we awaken the psyche towards the next great adventure of our own unfolding.
Enjoy delicious watermelon after class!

Please note this will be the only class that day, we will be closed after. Sat Nam.
