We had a great class Wednesday night, in the shade of the pines on the east side of the World’s Fair Pavillion grounds. Class will be tomorrow, if it is hot–under the pines again, if the ground is wet, over by the fountain on the concrete. If it rains between 8:30 and 9:30, NO class. Otherwise, I hope to see you there. I am heading for the game tonight–RAIN RAIN GO AWAY, COME SOME OTHER TIME, SO THE CARDS CAN PLAY!!
Yes, we will be at the World’s Fair Pavilion grounds in Forest Park at 6:00 tonight. We will practice in the shade of the pine trees on the East side of the grounds. Please bring water to keep yourself hydrated. It will be very warm, but still cooler than the 104 temp of hot yoga! I sure hope some of you can make it, we always have a good time in the fresh air.
Our October overnight for Yoga Nidra was a big hit. At the end, nobody wanted to leave, so we put on the swimsuits, imbibed mimosas and hung out. By request, our next Yoga Nidra retreat will be June 13-15. Nidra is a celebration of the full moon, and this one will be just before the summer solstice. The setting is beautiful and peaceful, the hosts-Doug and Karen Halbert are fun and accommodating, and this time there will be the hot tub and the swimming pool available to enjoy! And the gourmet food–WOW! Five yoga practices, ranging from breathwork and meditation to active flow are designed to make you feel gooood. We have 25 slots, the pricing is very affordable. It ranges from the luxury suites to tent-camping. I am predicting that again, a good time will be had by all. for more info. go to deborahgambill.com, kabloomyoga.com, or hiddenhillsbandb.com I would love, love, love it it you could come.
This is always a busy time of year–Weddings, graduations, picnics…And Mother’s Day sometimes sneaks up on you. I am offering $10 off gift certificates for Mother’s Day massages (only $60, my price 15 years ago, folks!). As a Mom, I always anticipate Mother’s Day time with my children and am lucky enough to enjoy great memories with my boys. ..and thoughtful gifts, too. Massages are great gifts-one size fits all, but each is tailored specifically. If you love massage as much as I do, and, I really really do-please take advantage of my special and I will apply my talents to whatever Mom needs–pain relief, relaxation, or just some quiet nurturing to feel good.
It’s a little early to smell the roses…but the hyacinths and the lilacs, YES. Driving in the early evenings with my windows down, I am filled with emotions–memories of little boys (including the smell of mud), friends at work in the garden with me (mulch time already, Jill?), and the intermingling of BBQ smoke with the headiness of the flora(porch party!)–nostalgic and now blend to feelings of gratitude and a bit of homesickness. The nature of aromatherapy is that it goes to the core of the brain and elicits deep responses beyond our reasoning, but I am pretty sure it can also go straight to the heart <3
I was up at the crack of dawn, excited with anticipation of the 6pm class tonight at the World’s Fair Pavilion–habits from my days as a pilot as I perform my checklist(a very different one from the airplane days–hehe—-who KNEW?)

OMG…I almost forgot to pack mats!!!!!!!!!!!!! In the old days, I never forgot to pack the plane!
This Saturday, while taking my walk through my wonderful neighborhood Tower Grove Park, I saw people heading for the park–yoga mats tucked under arm and walking with that smooth, upright, confident stride that I like to see with yogis. I began to get excited about the advent of our classes at the World’s Fair Pavilion(6pm). This morning I get up and see the sun and can’t wait to walk through the park and salute it myself. My heart is light.
