Monthly Update - June 2018

DoYogaWithMe June updates
 
 
Happy June everyone! As the days get longer and the nights warmer, we are reminded that the  changing of the season offers us the opportunity to switch things up. Instead of a before bed Netflix session, how about a long evening walk? Skip the treadmill at the gym and mow that lawn!  It is easy to settle into a routine and overlook the activities and experiential moments that won’t be here all year. On that note, we have a bevy of classes that meet you wherever you happen to be in the season of your life.

Yin Yoga | 60 min | Beginner

The first class in this series is Yoga for Seniors: Improve Strength, Flexibility and Balance I.

OUR MOST RECENT SANGHA SESSION (SATURDAY, MAY 12, 2018)

 
Sangha sessions are questions that inspire community dialogue on our forum. These questions help us understand what is important to our community as well as giving our members the opportunity to share, ask and connect.
 
Community Question: "Where did you first hear about DYWM?" 
 
 

OUR NEXT SANGHA SESSION (SATURDAY, JUNE 2, 2018)

 
Community Question: “Do you most often prefer to do a class that you have 1) already done or 2) never done? Why?"
 
 

NEW WEBSITE FEATURES

 
Under ‘About Us’ you will see a new page detailing our mission. Get a sense of what we care about, how we run our business, our promise to the DYWM community and our pledge to maintain integrity as our community grows. Get to know what makes us tick! 
 
We are excited to present 20-30 minute interviews, every second Tuesday on Teacher Feature Tuesday. These chats feature one (or more!) of our fabulous teachers and are hosted by the ever charming David Procyshyn. Certain chats are live streamed, while others  are pre-recorded, depending on the teacher’s availability. They are light, conversational interviews… some just shoot the breeze while others have a particular focus. But both are sure to include  lots of laughs!
 
Up until now we have only been posting our teacher bloopers on social media. We have collected them all and featured them on our new ‘Bloopers and Outtakes’ page. Check it out and see if you missed any!

Yoga for 50+ with Satiya Channer
Satiya doesn’t look it, but she is 50+ herself. Her approach to yoga for those a bit older is gentle, warm and accommodating. She makes beginners of any age feel good.
 
More Pilates with Kathi Ells
We have filmed another series of pilates classes with Kathi that will help further your understanding of the pilates system and how it can strengthen your body, as well as classes that will challenge you in a big way!

Seniors Program/Challenge?
oandriewsky 6 months ago

I've been a fan off DoYogaWithMe for years and, because of a bad knee, particularly value to the gentle and Seniors yoga videos. I'm very happy to see you are expanding your collection of Seniors videos. I would love to see a Seniors Program (30-days) or even a Seniors challenge. For many of us, establishing a daily routine makes a world of difference.

It is very helpful, in general, when instructors provide workarounds for those of us with bad knees (a common problem).
