Peaceful Hands Yoga in Orange ~ 2015



It's time to ring the bell! The new 8-Week Winter Yoga Session Begins on Monday, January 5 and is scheduled to run through Wednesday, February 25.

YOGA with JACKIE

Monday & Wednesdays

4:30 p.m. & 6:00 p.m.


PEACEFUL HANDS YOGA
228 Warren Street

at Sedwick Racquetball Courts

in Orange, Virginia


For the latest Yoga Class updates, including class changes, etc click here: Peaceful Hands Yoga or check in on Facebook: Peaceful Hands on Facebook.

Don't wait to make your body supple! Don't wait to make your heart smile! Don't wait to breathe deep! Unroll your yoga mat and join us ...

Yoga classes are ongoing throughout the year. You are welcome to try out a class at any time (and your first class with me is free!). Watch this blog for the latest schedules, special classes, workshops and weather-related cancellations. (Sign up for email reminders using the link on the right-side column.)

You may join a class at any time during a session, but if you're new to my classes, please call or email me first before coming by.  My phone is 540-672-9528.  My email is jackie@peacefulhands.com.  


ADDITIONAL DETAILS

You don't need to wait for a new session to start to join in -- you may join in at any time.

My classes are designed for all levels; beginners and long-time students of yoga are welcome (and all levels in-between). Don't worry if you've never been on a yoga mat before. Yoga is a beautifully forgiving practice; each pose is accessible to each of us as long as we approach the pose with kindness, and we never push to the point of discomfort or pain. Sometimes each of us must modify a pose to support injuries or restrictions; yoga can be modified in infinite ways to make it accessible and beneficial to all of us.

Two classes with Jackie are offered on Mondays and Wednesdays.

The 4:30 p.m. class focuses on a Level 1 practice, exploring basic Yoga poses from a variety of traditions.

The 6:00 p.m. class may also include Level 2 poses, more challenging Yoga for those who would like a slightly more vigorous practice (with modifications available for beginners.)

While Beginners and others are welcome at any of my classes, if you have physical restrictions that may limit your practice, you may find the easier pace of the 4:30 classes more comfortable for your needs.

We practice basic hatha yoga and I like to explore and play with many different yoga practices -- including flowing Vinyasa Yoga, gentle Tibetan Yoga, and balancing Ayurvedic Yoga. Every class includes breathing practices and time for relaxation and meditation. Yoga is a wonderful way to bring health, flexibility, and strength to the body; calm the mind and relieve stress; and rejuvenate the spirit.

Class Sessions -- Sessions are generally on an 8-week schedule (although that does change from time to time, especially in summer and around the holidays, so check the website to see where we are in a session).  

** Single/Drop-In Class: $13

There are two discounts for people who choose to enroll in a full session.

** Students may take any eight classes over the eight-week session. ($72)

** Students may take an UNLIMITED SESSION, coming twice a week or as often as their schedule allows.  ($120)

Both options offer a deep discount over the per-class rate of $13/class.

(Make-Up Policy: Students may make up any missed classes during the session, by coming on a different day or at a different time.  Because of the generous fee discount, there is no carry-over into the next session.)

What To Bring/What To Wear -- Bring a Yoga mat if you have one. We do have a few "loaner" mats available. We also have Yoga blocks and other props for your use. Dress for light exercise. Most students wear Yoga pants, leggings, sweats, or shorts, along with a short-sleeved tee shirt. During the relaxation part of class you may wish to have a sweat shirt, socks, or an extra layer available. Yoga is done in bare feet. You may bring a bottle of water if you like (no other food or drink is allowed in the studio). Cell phones must be turned off during class ("vibrate only" is also distracting to others around you).

Cancellations -- Occasionally classes are cancelled due to bad weather or other calendar conflicts. Session dates are adjusted accordingly. I post last-minute cancellations on this page, on Facebook (Peaceful Hands on Facebook), and email those who are registered in the current session.  If in doubt, check this website or send me an email.  PLEASE NOTE: I do not automatically cancel classes if local schools close -- the decisions schools must make by 4 a.m. may not apply by our class times. I'll make a call for our classes by 1:30 p.m. on class day.

Refunds -- If you enroll, but must drop out of a session, please let me know as soon as you make your decision. You will be charged for the classes in the session up to the point when you contacted me, at the regular drop-in rate of $13/class, and will be charged a $15 administration fee. Because the session fees offer such generous discounts over the regular drop-in fee, it may be that there is no outstanding refund owed.

Winter Session 2015 Begins January 5!


Over the past 12 years, Peaceful Hands in Orange, Virginia has become a Yoga family and I'm grateful to everyone who has been part of our classes -- those who come every week and those who are only able to come once in awhile. 
You are a special part of the Peaceful Hands Yoga family.

And, now I'm delighted to invite you to our new Yoga home ... 
Beginning December 31 (New Years Eve!) we'll be located at the Sedwick Racquetball Courts (in the upstairs studio).  The address is 228 Warren Street in Orange ... very easy to find (directions below).

This change brings many new benefits. First and foremost, a lot more space to stretch out comfortably and play in a nice wide-open studio! Plus, more parking and easier in-and-out before and after class.

While our address is changing ... the spirit of Peaceful Hands Yoga remains the same.

I hope you and your Yoga mat will take the new studio out for a spin. 

(My massage studio will remain in downtown Madison.)

*** Make a healthy, fit, and vibrant year your 2015 Resolution! **


And, begin that commitment with Yoga classes on New Year's Eve AND New Year's Day:

Wednesday, December 31, New Year's Eve ~ classes at 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Thursday, January 1, New Year's Day ~ 9:30 a.m. 


$13/class.  And, what could make these classes even sweeter?  What if they were free??  If you sign up for the upcoming 8-week Winter Session (which begins Monday, January 5), you can get one -- or BOTH -- classes for Free!

Here's the Free-Deal ... Come to class on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day, and if you sign up and pay for the upcoming 8-week Winter Session ... take ONE of these classes for Free.

Or, an even "Free-er" Free-Deal ... sign up for the UNLIMITED class option and BOTH the Wednesday AND Thursday class are free for you! 

Our 8-Week 2015 Winter Session will begin on Monday, January 5 and is scheduled to run through Wednesday, February 25.

Classes on Mondays & Wednesdays

4:30 p.m. ~ Level 1

6:00 p.m. ~ Level 1 / Level 2 
8 Classes ~ $72 (take any eight classes during the session that work for your schedule)
