As we greet a new year, we also acknowledge the one that has just concluded. We know that 2022 provided challenges to many members of our community, and we hope your yoga and meditation practices have supported you as you have navigated those challenges.
While this transitional period from one year to the next emphasizes the change in the calendar—reminiscing about the past and forecasting the future—yoga calls us to be in the present. Whether we complete an asana practice, try different pranayama or breathing exercises, or read yogic texts, yoga gives us tools to remain in the now.
To explore ways you can remain present, please join us in January: we are offering 38 in-studio yoga classes, a Zoom meditation workshop, and two opportunities to socialize.
- Meditation Made Easy Workshop. We are delighted to announce the return of these affordable and accessible meditation workshops with Danny Brewington from Nashville! If your 2023 plans include beginning, supporting, or expanding a meditation practice, join us on Zoom on Sat., Jan. 21, at 11 a.m. for a 90-minute workshop. This month’s session focuses on the sixth chakra; please see this post for a full description. To keep up with the workshop and receive reminders, check out its Facebook event; if you are ready to register, click here.
- Leslie Farewell Gathering. As we previewed in our December email, we will celebrate Leslie Weigel’s many contributions to Bowling Green’s yoga community with a farewell gathering on Thurs., Jan. 5, after the 4 p.m. class. Join us in the upstairs lounge at The Pots Place to thank Leslie for her commitment to our community and to wish her well in Connecticut.
- Yoga Social before Lost River Sessions. You may have already noticed that Lost River Sessions is back, with its first show of the year on Thurs., Jan. 19, at the Capitol. We will gather for a yoga social at 5:30 p.m. to enjoy snacks and beverages before strolling down to the Capitol for the concert.
- New afternoon Gentle class. To complement our morning offerings of Gentle yoga on Mondays and Thursdays, Angie will teach an afternoon class, at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesdays. If your schedule makes an afternoon class easier to attend, please join her on Tuesdays!
Introduction to Yoga: If you would like to explore what yoga is and can offer you or would find it useful to have a casual private class before joining open classes, sign up here for an affordable introductory class tailored to your schedule and goals.

We look forward to seeing you in 2023 and hope that the new year provides just what you need.
