Gentle Yoga – Starting Slow

Gentle Yoga is the way to restart your yoga practice or find a slow way into yoga. We take out the chaturanga, hold the poses longer, offer a modification down to make the pose more accessible and limit the temperature to 80 degrees (maybe a perfect day in Marin).

Check the schedule for all of your options!

M-W-F 10:45am

T-Th 7:30am

W 7:15pm

Saturday 11am

Start now, you can do this!!!

These gloves are 14 oz and designed to maximize the effectiveness of your workout! $60 and available at the shop today!

TheShop is located at 611 San Anselmo Ave next to Tam Realty and BookSmith and across the street from Dogville.

Bring The Love

I don’t send out enough MPY email…below is the most recent email.
We have so much happening between Teacher Training (info on  front page of website, starts in January) to Annual Memberships (talk with Nance or email amy@marinpoweryoga.com) to Amazing Clothes at TheShop to New Teachers at MPY like Jen, Marianne and Megan (see the gorgeous rainbow picture above or click display images so you can). Really, we need to talk about Love.

What? Seriously. Walking thru Town, you will see Change Is Happening. Shops are closing, Cucina is opening a Bar, the new restaurant buildout is evolving, Creekside has over 30 beers rotating on tap and in general the shops are beautifully decorated and stocked for the holidays. All of that is just news. What is real? Love.

I turned 46 this week. I understand this is great, I defied the odds once again and am still here doing the best I can. I see all of the creases, gray hair and soft spots even as my eyes struggle to see things I used to see clearly. This year has been tougher and filled with slow recovery from injuries. I am walking slower and watching carefully where I step, experience is a great teacher. Love is a better teacher.

What can I do better than ever before? Love. I start with myself, from basic manscaping to eating well and hydrating. The Love with which we treat ourselves is the foundation of what we can give to others. This takes time and attention we all deserve and is strangely harder than loving others. When we see the order of operations on a plane telling us to give ourselves oxygen before the kids, I always have to think thru this logic and remember, when we take care of ourselves we have the ability to take care of others. Right?

We have exciting changes coming in 2019 and we have a few weeks of partying and working out and yoga to finish off the year. Drive Sober and Drive Slower. Be kind to your neighbor, your relatives, your friends and family. Treat them all with Love. Treat yourself with Love. Bring The Love. Also, Bring The Chocolate. See you at The Studio or TheShop soon.
Peace and Love,
Jamie

Fall down 9 times get up 10

People, we all fall down. It is the getting back up that defines who you are and what you become.

The wind knocked over the Xmas tree last night, that doesn’t mean Christmas is over or the tree lighting will not happen on December 1st from 5-6:30pm. It means it will be different, we will have to care more, lift the tree back up and fix the branches and add some lights and bring the magic back to the holidays. Pick your self up, let’s do this!

The shop has lululemon mats

If you are ready for a new yoga mat, come check out the colors we have at TheShop! Most of the mats are $78, some are $68. All of the lulu mats are reversible and you will not slip on them!

Pro Tip: use a permanent marker (sharpie) to make your mat distinctive and easily recognizable. Whether it is your name or a pattern or your family symbol or your phone number, make it easy for your mat to find you when it is lost!

Thanks are for Giving!

Thank You. This has been a strangely difficult year to feel this. From resentment to bitterness to anger to sadness, the human experience has been very real this year. Today, I am feeling gratitude for health and happiness personally, for my family and our community. I know that each day is uniquely amazing and I do not take them for granted.

Thank you to Gabe for showing up this morning, to all of our Members and Guests who have taken class thru the year…and our Teachers and Staff who show up for their classes and constantly work on improving their skills and sharing their knowledge and growth with us. Keep your heads up people and your hearts open, your ability to forgive and your capacity to love is greater than ever before, let’s make the end of this year spectacular!
