Greetings!

Here is what’s happening at Pranayama Yoga Studio:

As you may all know by now, Pranayama Yoga Studio is transitioning into the new phase. The soon-to-be new owners of the studio, Bea, Bob and Javinta are very excited to continue offering yoga to the Rockford community The Iyengar Way.  We’ve been vigorously trained by Jennie Williford and other senior Iyengar teachers in the Midwest to deliver you one of the best quality yoga experiences in Rockford!  Whether it’s been a while since your last yoga class or you’ve been one of our regular students, we’re looking forward seeing you at the studio for the new 4-week session which starts on May 4th! The first Yoga Sutra of Patanjali says – Atha Yoganusasanam, which translates into “Now begins the instructions of Yoga”. NOW is your opportunity to experience the transformative nature of this practice!

New 4-week session calendar is below. As always, we offer punch cards for $45 per session (4 classes), $80 (8 classes) or $15 drop-in fee. We only accept cash or checks.

There is no requirement to pre-register, just come in shortly before the class and we will get you started! All the mats and props that you need are waiting for you. And remember that your first class at Pranayama Yoga Studio is always FREE so you can decide if the practice is for you. And by giving yourself the gift of yoga, we give you the gift of $10 off your first punch card.

The Only Constant is Change

Ah yes, that age-old adage – “the only constant in life is change”…

Yoga surely acknowledges this fact, but sometimes in smaller and slower increments. So, in case we start to forget, life is there to throw us the big ones!

If you missed class these first two weeks of the current session, you also missed the announcement that change is coming to Pranayama Yoga Studio. At the end of 2014, my husband quit his job and that means we will be moving on from Rockford soon. These past few months have been a whirlwind of transition and decision.

Many of you know that Pranayama Yoga Studio was a blessing to me from Joan Hurd when she retired, and so I am paying it forward to three student teachers of the studio. Javinta Armoska, Bea Dworecki, and Bob Schaye will be taking on the teaching and responsibilities of running the studio as of May 2015. I will be finishing out this current 8-week session that runs through April 25, but you will see them more and more as I travel to interviews and home searches.

Though change does sometimes bring some pain, it also brings exciting opportunities. It has been wonderful introducing Iyengar Yoga to the Rockford Community, but new teachers can bring new perspectives on practice and on yoga. As Pranayama Yoga Studio goes through these changes, I want to encourage you all to continue in your long, uninterrupted, and disciplined practice.

New Session Begins Monday March 2

It is that time again…to decide if that idea you had about starting yoga will become a reality or once more pass you by. We will be beginning a new 8-week session next week, and now is the time to get the best out of starting your yoga practice!

Pranayama Yoga Studio runs on 8-week sessions and with leveled classes, giving our students the opportunity to learn the practice of yoga in a more structured, graspable, and traditional manner. The best results from yoga come from a regular practice, not just a class every now and then, so committing to the 8-week session gives you the amazing opportunity to realize the transformative nature of yoga.

But there are always those questions: will I like it? will I be able to do it? am I too stiff, too fat, too old, too young, etc…

The answers only lie in giving yoga a try! Your first class at Pranayama Yoga Studio is always FREE so you can decide if the practice is for you. And by giving yourself the gift of yoga, we give you the gift of $10 off your first punch card.

No need to pre-register, just come on in to the class that suits you best and we will get you started! All the mats and props that you need are waiting for you, so we’ll see you soon!
