Let’s Heal STL–project moving forward

as we continue toward publishing our book, avenues continue to open and expand our Horizons.  Next week we will interview with Mr. Bernie Hayes for Channel 24 regarding the project. Ron and I have been busy recording a companion  CD at Jupiter Studios.  We are coordinating events with Grand South Grand  and the Ferguson Youth Initiative that will keep us busy all Spring and Summer.  The budget, the sample budget and book sampler are ready for donors to peruse and donations are being sought.  This is an inspired project and is bringing us rapidly into the flow with like-minded and more importantly, like-hearted individuals who are bent on making a difference.  Who know how far reaching….



Last Saturday, Miz Ollie Stewart and the group at Southside Wellness Ctr. hosted a party for Black History month.  The speakers were amazing, the soul food, delicious, and the music-wonderful. We met Mr. Bernie Hayes who invited us for our first TV interview on Channel 24.  We tap the show early next Thursday morning.  We met Lloyd Henry from Christ Church Cathedral who has invited us to come to a special program/service next Sunday at 10 regarding activism in Ferguson.  Many people talked with us about the book–including a young Marcus Stewart, who is a member of the Ferguson Youth Initiative–a very impressive Nonprofit that our book will help support.  We are amazed and grateful for all of the folks with beautiful spirits who are aligned with us😍

Our studio ROCKS

If you have ever been to yoga at “The Gym” or next to the gym on a cruise ship, you should try a yoga studio. The experience is entirely different–like wading in a puddle or experiencing the majesty of the sea. Yes, they are both water—

New time– 6:30 Thursday evenings–Viniyoga/Restorative at the new, BEAUTIFUL Casa Bagus studio!

Savasana w eyecover
Casa Bagus is located on Clayton Road between St. Mary’s Hospital and the Cheshire Inn. We have selected this beautiful new location for our ALL LEVELS VINIYOGA/Restorative class.

Casa Bagus feels like a wonderful yoga home! This space is quiet and beautifully furnished, just waiting for us to bring our energy to it. One hour of the class will be Viniyoga–working with breath as we move in and out of a variety of yoga poses (very accessible and workable to experience and new yogis alike) and practice learning how to work the pose while we stay in it. The final 15 minutes will be devoted to restorative practice–bringing a restful end to the majority of the work week. Props are provided and all you need is a mat–bring friends! Casa Bagus has a terrific organic juice bar and tea room, with plenty of seating for those friends before or after class. Learn more about Casa Bagus at http://www.casabagus.com
