MindFull Gathering: Success!

Dear Dew Yogis,
We had an amazing MindFull Gathering connecting with one another, the Yoga communities of CT Power Yoga, Family Tree Yoga , Mantra Yoga and Aerial Arts, many beautiful vendors, music and with Nature. The day exceeded any expectations and intentions we had for such a gathering. So many of you who attended, thanked me personally for putting together this event. It is a practice for me to receive such beautiful sentiments and as I do that work, let me shine some light on those who had as big a hand in this as I did.

FullSizeRender 6For me, it was an incredible manifestation of community, which can not happen without all of you. You all made it happen and we hope the MindFull Gathering will continue to evolve and flourish beyond this year. We have included some great photos from the day, below. If you have pictures from the day, please send them along to us so we can share those as well.
All Love and Light to All of you!
Jen Irwin

The Yoga Teacher Discovery continues tonight!

Join us for a FREE class, to try a new instructor that maybe you haven’t before!

7:30-8:45pm MEN’S YOGA with Bruce Bassock

We asked Bruce, off the cuff, what he loves most about teaching yoga… he said, “I love that students come up to me all the time after not seeing me for a while, and tell me that they are so much happier that they found yoga, and that it has changed their lives in so many ways – physically, mentally. and emotionally.”

Even if this already is your regular class and already favorite teacher, your class is still on us.
All Karma comes and goes around. Come practice, explore and discover.
Peace, Love, and Light,
Dew Yoga

This week’s FREE class with Laurie Jordan

This week! (Weds, April 5)
11am – 12:15pm Slow Flow & Yin Yoga with Laurie Jordan
We asked Laurie, off the cuff, what she loves most about teaching yoga:
“I love sharing the idea that when we learn to treat ourselves with compassion, we are better equipped to extend compassion toward others… that, and helping people learn to not take yoga so seriously!”
Even if this already is your regular class and already favorite teacher, your class is still on us. All Karma comes and goes around. Come practice, explore and discover!
Peace, Love, and Light,

Dew Yoga’s All Day Open House – Success!

Dear Friends!
What an amazing show of love, inspiration and support for Dew Yoga this past Sunday at the Open House. We enjoyed meeting so many new friends and curiosity-seekers. We shared with you the diversity and many dimensions of Yoga; instruction and community. We met our fundraising goal!!

Now we launch into summer with enthusiasm that is shared by both students and teachers alike. The day helped to reinforce our foundation and remind us all why Dew Yoga is so special and thrives by being in service. Look for new classes and upcoming events as well as a few shifts to the schedule to adapt to Summer schedules.

In Autumn, there will be even more for us to explore, learn and practice.

With love and so much gratitude for who and what Dew is – You, Me, We!
Jen

Announcing Dew Yoga’s All Day Open House Fundraiser

Dear Friends,

We are so excited to announce the All Day Open House Fundraiser!

As the availability of Yoga classes has exploded around us more and more, people are incorporating Yoga into their routine. This is a beautiful thing for the greatest good!

It also creates a wide array of choices for students to explore. While attractive pricing for classes may draw a crowd, we remain committed to our diverse selection of classes and the highest quality of teaching and environment. Our Open House is a day for us to demonstrate Why Do Yoga at Dew. We will also be raising funds to support our sliding scale and sponsored classes to maintain our missions – Make Yoga accessible to all. Offer diversity to diversity.

As Summer moves us to the vibrant outdoors, it becomes low season for indoor Yoga classes. A robust turn out for this event will help us to attract new friends to the studio and keep us financially secure through summer. Please do what you can to support your community. We are already receiving monetary gifts in advance of this event! There are many ways to help us to do what we do best – YOGA, SERVICE, WELLNESS!  Read below for ways you can help.

With love, respect and gratitude,
Jen

Here’s the class schedule and eats, treats, and shopping schedule for the day!
