Rooftop? Moving indoors today!

Yes, we are the dog days of summer. Our rooftop class is going to meet indoors at 2020 Washington this evening. We have cool accommodations in one at the lofts where we can practice comfortably, still with a beautiful view of the city. 

Meet us tonight at 7 o’clock in the lobby at 2020 Washington. Due to the extreme heat, the class will be mostly restorative and Yin yoga, moving  a slow and comfortable pace and aimed at recovery from stress and the heat. It is still all levels and is $10. All you need is a mat and a bottle of water.

We will still have our 8:30 AM class at Lafayette park near the entrance at Park Avenue at Mississippi this Saturday. Hope you can make that too.

Stay cool–Have a great day.

 See you on the mat!

I know it’s hot, but we’ve got cool places for your yoga practice!

You might think that would be too hot on the rooftop on Thursdays, but last week was a perfect example. It’s much hotter down on the street level on the sidewalk. I rooftop practice is shaded by the time that we have it and the breeze on the nine stories high yoga studio makes it a very pleasant experience. I hope you’ll join us at 7 o’clock this Thursday at 2020 Washington Ave. have fun with out the sun.

And our Saturday morning class at 8:30 AM near the entrance of Lafayette Square Park at Park Avenue in Mississippi is also shaded and wonderful! Having it at that hour makes the heat of the day pretty much and relevant. Hope you can make it.

We ❤️our summer outdoor practices, and you will too!

Celebrate YOUR Independence Day…Your Yoga practice can get you there!

Yoga is the tool developed by the ancients to free up your mind, body, and spirit.  By loosening the bonds of restrictions in all three areas, a sense of one’s true self can be uninhibited toward a more peaceful and fulfilling life.  We live in a tense and demanding world full of turmoil and timelines.  More than ever, yoga offers the tools for coping and flourishing despite whatever else is happening.  There it is…the purpose of yoga is to make you happy!

Our summer fun includes Rooftop yoga (Thursdays at 2020 Washington-7pm), Park Yoga (in Lafayette Square Park near the Park Ave/Mississippi entrance), and I’m developing a new Humpday Yoga class downtown (at Industrious, 555 Washington-3rd floor-Noon, starting July 12).

Two summer outdoor practices for you!

To yoga opportunities to practice with us this week! (Through the summer)The rooftop at 2020 Washington Ave. We meet in the lobby between seven and 7:15. If the weathers bad, we just move into one of the lofts. 
Second thing is we will begin our Saturday in Lafayette Park at 8:30 AM outdoor Park yoga class. Unfortunately, if the weather is inclement in the park, we will not have class. 
Both classes are all levels and both classes are $10. All you need is a mat and the water bottle. Layered stretchable clothing is a good idea. 
Hope to see you on the mat.

Spring Yoga Nidra Overnight Retreat is May 12-13 at Hidden Hills B and B

I’m looking forward to our semi annual yoga Nidra retreat weekend. This time it falls on Mother’s Day weekend. And we will have the retreat Friday night through Saturday afternoon-all levels practice.  This is a three practice retreat. We will do our practices on the beautiful deck overlooking the hills in Festus Missouri at Hidden Hills B&B. I’m including a photograph of the brochure regarding the details. Hope you can join us. This will be a great celebration of the full moon and the kinship of our wonderful yoga community!

NEW Downtown STL-Rooftop Yoga

Come and join us in the air, if you dare…

I am excited to share with you that we will be adding a new venue to our yoga-on the rooftop at 2020 Washington Avenue, downtown STL!  My longtime faithful yoga student and massage client, Jeanine A. stepped up and offered this amazing spot.  Nine stories above the street, we should have an exhilarating view of Downtown St. Louis-Union Station, the new plaza, and the STL Arch, to name a few.  I have taught rooftop before, and it is always a really lovely experience.  There is something about being high in the air during the practice that feels freeing.  It is always a remarkable yoga experience.

We will gather for the class in the lobby of 2020 Washington between 7:00 and 7:15pm each Thursday.  We will promptly head up for the roof at 7:15 (do not be late!).  FREE street parking begins at 7:00pm.  The cost for the class is an affordable $10.  All you need to bring is your mat and a bottle of water.  Props will be provided. In case of rain or other inclement weather, we have indoor space for our practice.  If you have other questions, please email me at dgsmassageandyoga@gmail.com
