Rise and Shine Yoga pilot class!

There seems to be more interest in a morning yoga class than a lunch hour class, so let's give it a try! Class will be held Monday morning from 7:00 to 7:50. On the large concrete slab between Dickinson and the Biology buildings. Hope to see you there!

Yoga at Dickinson Hall?

I haven't offered "Lunch Hour Yoga" in several months, because I sensed that interest was dwindling, and the temperatures dropped a bit too low for anyone to want to practice outside on a concrete slab. However, winter is long gone, and if there is any interest at all in yoga classes I would be happy to start offering them again.

Classes will be on Mondays from 12:00-12:50, unless I am in the field (which I will post on this blog). I would also be willing to teach an early morning class on Mondays from 6:30 or 7:00 to 8:00 for any of you who really want to jump-start your week.

Please let me know if you're interested in either early morning or lunch hour yoga classes by leaving me a comment or contacting me at or

I am still teaching Monday nights at the Ayurveda Health Retreat in Alachua from 6:00-7:00.
