That’s a wrap! Honored to teach again this year @competeindoorsports and to join our communities to support the Joe Andruzzi Foundation and their UpBeat Cancer Initiative!

Sharing per request... I am here. There are no distractions or illusions. Yoga is a time to move and a time to be still. A time to “go with the flow” and a time to slow down. Yoga is my time to not react, not force, not resist, not avoid, not change, not talk, not explain, not add to, not take away, not make decisions, not compromise, not analyze, not think, not plan, not do, but to just be. It is very simple and very empowering. There is no rushing to the next pose as the practice is always one moment at a time. As I shift my awareness to my breath and my physical body, I notice my thoughts settle into unexpected organization or they dissipate completely. I find clarity and my inner most, heart-felt intentions come to the surface. Clarity of what I want, what I don’t want, and what my priorities are, straight from my soul. Intuition rises within me. I realize I can make a shift at any juncture. I’m not even thinking, I’m just observing what I already know. I can experience this moment and any moment anyway I choose. I can continue the same or choose differently. Even though the past is not perfect and the future is unknown, there is beauty in this moment, and I am so grateful for my life. I am in the flow and I will move forward with ease. I feel the bountiful energy, connection and inspiration from all of our UPY community balanced with the serenity of being in this quiet studio with my own presence. This moment is here and I am breathing fully in it. I hear and feel my breath. I listen to my body and it tells me when to be still and when to move on. No thoughts needed. My body, mind and soul are in union. Yoga is my “me time” to fill up my cup. To be. To feel calm and peaceful today. One practice might not change your life, but a consistent practice certainly will. I know first hand that this is true. 👋 A meditative reflection written by Jen Palmer, Owner, UPY ❤️

Congratulations to our newest Meditation Teachers! Watch out world. They are calm, peaceful warriors, and they are ready to share their skills with others.🧘🏻‍♀️🧘🏻‍♂️🙏🕉

Yoga is about connection with something greater than yourself. But it starts with you. You have to connect with yourself first. Connect with your body and your breath. Find unconditional love for yourself. Once you feel this connection, it’s easier to connect with others and something even greater..... 💗Loved practicing today with the 12 noon yogis and @haniakt 🙏

Did you know that forward folds cool the body and calm the mind? Did you know that we have several “cooling” practices that we offer every week? TUES: 10:45 AM YIN YOGA WED: 12 PM GENTLE SLOW FLOW WED: 7:30 PM ACOUSTIC SLOW FLOW & RESTORATIVE FRI: 11 AM YIN YOGA SUN: 6 PM SLOW FLOW & RESTORATIVE These 5 weekly classes are designed to slow us down, cool us down and balance the energy of summer. They are a wonderful compliment to our heated vinyasa classes or stand beautifully on their own. Try YIN today with Gale and let us know what you think. 🤗 #coolingyoga #relaxationmode #balance #UPY
