Even the sound of the word April is like a song. By this time in the year, the upward and outward flowing energies of the earth are in full expression with the song of new life. In ourselves, the upward flow of energy moving from the solid base of the core foundation can be expressed in the heart center, or the anahata chakra (translated as the unstruck sound). Some issues associated with the anahata chakra are love, compassion, devotion, balance, and selfless service.
Our focus this month will support the balancing of energies in the heart center with back-bending poses while continuing to strengthen and ground through the core and legs. (We don’t want to fly away!)
Join us for a heart-balancing month of practice: see the attached PDF (below) for an easily printable calendar of 4yoga’s April schedule. We will have hard copies of the file available for pick-up at classes, and the schedule is always available through the calendar section of our website (www.4yoga.me/calendar)
April guest teachers and special events:
- Tuesday, 4/10: 9:30 a.m. gentle class with Debbie Marquette
- Saturday, 4/14: 8:00 a.m. flow class with Susan Tutino
- Friday, 4/20: 6:45 p.m. yoga talk and meditation with Erica (no charge, everyone welcome)
- Sunday, 4/22: 4:30 p.m. basics class with Susan Polk
We will continue our existing class days and times into April because this schedule seems to be working well for members of our yoga community. All classes meet at Dance Images, 1803 Creason Street, Bowling Green, Kentucky, and the fee for each class is $5.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback, please ask one of us at class or send an email to this address. We check this account daily and will reply as quickly as we can.
We are grateful for all of you who have been a part of the first six months of 4yoga’s existence and look forward to practicing with you next month. Of course, we always welcome new students and are happy to arrange for a potential student to observe a class before deciding if a yoga practice is right for him or her. If you or someone you know is interested in observing an April class, please send an email to email@example.com so that we can let the teacher know to expect a guest.
