Community Classes, Workshops, and a Clothes Swap Party!

So many happenings at Loka right now!

1) There will be no Sunday 11AM class for the next two weeks, 12/7 and 12/14. After that, Annabelle Teleki will be home from her travels and will be teaching her Deep Mindful Vinyasa Flow Class every Sunday from 12/21 on. We are very happy to have her taking over that class long-term. You deserve to experience her class, a thoughtful flow grounded in the teachings of Iyengar, Ashtanga and Vini Yoga.

2) Loka now has FIVE $10 Community Classes! Last week we announced the introduction of four $10 community classes, and now we have FIVE. They are as follows:

Monday - 4:30-5:45PM Happy Hour Decompression Yoga with Marina van Stirum
Tuesday - 6:30-8:00AM Greet the Morning with Brittanie Mountz
Wednesday - 6:30-8:00AM Morning Vinyasa with Elyse Hochstadt
Thursday - 6:30-8:00AM Greet the Morning with Brittanie Mountz
Saturday - 11AM-12:15PM Gentle Vinyasa with Liz Acord

3) We have two new classes for the month of December. These classes are currently in the "experimental" stage, but we'll keep them on the schedule if you enjoy them.

Fridays - 4:30-5:30 Bay Area Kids & Family Yoga with Laxman Panthi
Saturdays - 8-8:45AM Meditation with Anna Parker (by donation)

4) Loka is now on Mindbody Online. How will this benefit you? Well, for one, you can always check the schedule and see current classes with teachers, subs, and class descriptions. You can put the app on your phone, and see all of the offerings at all of your favorite yoga studios in one concise list. Their software is very user friendly and common sense. And for your convenience, you can now sign-up for classes and pay for them too, right from the your own phone! We know it isn't always convenient to carry cash or checks, and we've been seeking the best credit card solution. The MBO app is the most convenient, cutting edge, and hassle-free way to pay. And of course we will still do punch cards, you're still in control of how you pay, you decide which option will give you greater peace of mind.

5) Loka is hosting a Detox Vinyasa Workshop at 1:00 pm on Saturday, 1/3/2015 with Stephanie Snyder. Please sign up now because there are very few spots left. This is a deeply cleansing and beneficial asana practice and a great opportunity to revitalize both your body and your mind. You deserve this!

6) Anna Parker will be leading our New Year's Day Practice. Welcome 2015 with intention and gratitude. This grounding vinyasa practice will allow you to turn inwards and mindfully set course for the year to come. Watch for another email for more info and pre-registration for this event. 

Dari and Anna are also cooking up some innovative "balanced approach" workshops to revitalize both your life and your practice, on and off the mat. From a solid yogic perspective, these workshops will delve into physical health and habits in relation to prosperity and spirituality. More info soon!

Friends and Students- 
Thank you all so much for taking a ride on this spaceship called Loka Yoga. I'm continually inspired and blown-away by how thoughtful, reliable, and loving you all are.  I am especially indebted to our lovely and reliable Desk/Work Trade friends, the heart and backbone of the Loka Community. There are no words to describe the appreciation I have for the patience you've all shown as we reinvent and grow Loka together. I am actively pursuing providing you with the best yoga and community experiences, you deserve nothing less. I hope I can satisfy all of your needs, cravings, and expectations, every last one of you has certainly exceeded mine. Thank you, thank you, thank you! 

I bow to you. ~ Dari
