New @ Dew… Yoga Teacher Discovery

Yogis, We know you love your teachers. We also know we form attachments to our favorite teachers, and sometimes it’s hard to step outside of our regular routines and comfort zones to discover a teacher we may be curious about or a time slot that is not in our regular schedule.

We want to entice you to broaden your learning of Yoga. We have so many wonderful and truly unique teachers and class styles that present our one beloved Yoga from different perspectives. Each week for the next few months we will offer a Teacher Discovery Class – free of charge in hopes that if your financial investment is minimized, you will take the emotional leap and invest your Yoga time into something or someone new to you!

This week! Friday, March 31st from 8:15 – 9:30am
Moderate Kripalu Yoga with Alison Denicola

We asked Alison, off the cuff, what she loves most about teaching yoga

“I love sharing yoga with others, and I especially love helping people discover simple but profound ways to feel good and reconnect with themselves. And that they are perfect and whole just as they are.”

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,

About Namaste

Dear Dew,

Help me out, I notice that at the end of classes at Dew Yoga people make the prayer hands and say Namaste to everyone else in the class. Is it rude if I don’t do that?



Dear Yogi,

The salutation Namaste, in simple terms means, the light in me honors the light in you. The hands held palm to palm at the heart is called Anjali Mudra, in simple terms; anjali – to offer or salute and mudra – seal as in to connect (not the animal.)

It can be a way of connecting to or offering gratitude or respect to the teacher within, the teacher in the room, your loved ones, your fellow students or to whatever you honor in the moment. This moment also punctuates the end of practice time.

It is absolutely fine, and certainly not rude to complete your practice in the way that feels most comfortable to you. As a teacher, I might suggest finding some other gesture or ritual that seals the practice for you, something that signifies the end of the time you dedicated to movement, mindfulness, meditation or to whatever it is that you come to practice.

At Dew, we often acknowledge each other for the time we spent in practice together since it is a shared journey in a group environment. However, I would hope that the collective always honors the uniqueness of each individual. So, be yourself and we are all honored in that!

Love, light, peace and some vegan-gluten-free, Paleo, nut free cookies too,
