Finding Your Superpowers Retreat

We had a fantastic time at the Finding Your Superpowers Retreat April 11 - 14th! Sixteen yogis from TYR and around the state joined Angela, Kalena, and me, for 4 days of yoga immersion. We covered the Chakras, the Yamas and Niyamas, Meditation, and Developing a Personal Practice. We even spent our morning practice and breakfast in silence to amplify our abilities to tune in. In addition to all the yoga, we enjoyed some free time hooping, hiking, and even napping.

Here are some pictures from the retreat. We hope you can join us for the next one!

Yoga for a Healthy Neck

I missed you last week! I've had so much going on lately that I didn't get around to sending out my weekly newsletter. Our dear teacher and my fantastic assistant, Jenifer, announced that she is moving out of state. We'll miss Jenifer deeply! I hope you can join us at her going-away potluck at The Yoga Room next Friday, April 19th, at 7:45 p.m. We'll provide drinks and tableware. Please feel welcome to bring your favorite dish. Tonight will be Jenifer's last classes at TYR. Share practice with her at her 6:15 p.m. Hatha I and/or her 7:30 p.m. Gentle class.

We've also been busy gearing up for our Finding Your Superpowers retreat! Angela, Kalena, and I, are excited to host this yoga immersion retreat over the next few days at Canyon of the Eagles. Our classes at TYR will go on as scheduled, with some of our other lovely teachers filling in for us. We look forward to returning to TYR on Monday!

One other exciting thing that's happened in the last week is that Huggies released a trailer for their Huggies Test Town (Round Rock) commercials. If you remember, Huggies filmed a mommy & baby yoga commercial at TYR last October. We can't wait to see our commercial on TV!

Now, getting to the point of this week's newsletter, a couple of weeks ago a sweet lady named Julie sent me an email and asked me to create a yoga video for neck pain. And here it is!

Neck pain can be attributable to imbalances in different parts of the body. This video addresses neck pain due to tightness in the torso and shoulders. It offers gentle and more advanced practices so you can pick and choose what feels most appropriate for you.

Please feel welcome to share this video with your friends or loved ones who deal with occasional or chronic neck pain. If you try out the video, please post a comment below and let me know how it goes. I'm also happy to answer questions, so feel free to post those, too!

Lots of love, Zelinda
