Sovereign Hands: Gentle Yoga Series Vol. 1 NOW AVAILABLE!!


I'm so excited to announce that I now have a yoga DVD for purchase!  This is just the first in what is soon to be a series of classes.  I have to thank my Monday morning yoga class that I taught at St. John's Rec in Brooklyn earlier this year and also the folks at The Mat Project  for making this possible. The whole thing felt really serendipitous. You know how I like to tell a good story so here it is.

Monday, May 12th I went in to teach my usual morning yoga class. I have to tell you it was my favorite class to teach. Most of the folks in my class were seniors and can you say dedicated?  These folks were not playing.   I really loved it.  Anyway, one morning after class one of my students asked me if I had a yoga DVD. When I told her no, she asked me why not and said, "Don't all professional yoga teachers have DVDs?"  I chuckled and told her, "No," but that didn't stop her from telling me that I should have one.  I thought about it, kind of chuckled to myself at that she thought every professional yoga teacher had a DVD and started on my way home after class.

Almost as soon as I walked out of the building I got a call from my friend Bess. She called to ask me if I wanted to shoot a yoga video to put on her new fitness website, The Mat Project.  What??!!! Now you know I almost dropped the phone.  Was I not just told I should have a yoga DVD and now I'm getting a call not even 10-15min later about shooting a video.  OK Universe, I hear you.

I told Bess yes, but then I started thinking about how I would get it done. Who would shoot, edit, etc. Well before I could even go down that rabbit hole she tells me that she has a spot where we can do it and her husband will shoot and edit the video. Say what??!!  Well alrighty then! So before I knew it we were shooting the video!

We made a push to get the edit together before I left to go to play at Michigan Womyn's Music Festival because I was also teaching a yoga class there.  The class at festival was amazing! I will be sharing more about that soon, but now I'm so happy to share this DVD with you.

It's a 30 minute gentle yoga series. So for my beginners, folks returning to yoga after a while or if you are just looking for something a little more slow flow, then this is for you.

 I hope you enjoy the DVD. Just look to the right and you can purchase. Thank you all so much for your support!
