Peaceful Hands Yoga Moves To Warren Street In Orange in 2015!

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.

Look ... our  Ocean Wall  has already arrived!  

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

(My massage studio will remain in downtown Madison.)

Here's our upcoming schedule.

*** Last class of our current HOLIDAY session is this Monday, December 15.  Be sure you get your Yoga in before the Christmas break.  This is our last class in our current studio.

I also have some lovely items available for Christmas stocking stuffers and gifts, including new music for peaceful meditation and restful sleep, beautiful handmade origami stars and birds for decorating trees and packages, and a limited number of those awesome "sticky" Yoga gloves that keep you from sliding off of your mat.

And, of course, holiday gift certificates for massage or Yoga ... or both!  Do a bit of shopping before or after Monday's class!

*** Make a healthy, fit, and vibrant 2015 your New Year's 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.

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)
Unlimited ~ $120 (take as many of the Monday/Wednesday classes during the session as you like)
Single Class ~ $13

No Yoga Classes In Orange Thanksgiving Week

Just a reminder that there will be no Yoga classes in Orange during Thanksgiving Week.  Classes will resume on Monday, December 1.

I hope you will get a bit of time during your holiday to unroll your mat and stretch out ... or just sit quietly for a minute or two and "turn down the volume".  That time of quiet is often especially nice this time of year.

I hope to see you in class in December.

And, it's never too late to join in ... if you'd like general information on my Yoga classes just click here: General Yoga Class Info or email me at

I love the spirit and enthusiasm and kindness and joyfulness you all bring to your Yoga and to our classes.

In 2015, we will be moving to a new Peaceful Hands Yoga studio in Orange.  It's bigger than our current "home" so plenty of room to stretch out.  It's only a mile or so from our current studio.  I'll post some "sneak peek" photos, directions, and details soon. I can't wait to share it with you!  (And, yes, the "ocean wall" and YogaPalooza is coming with us!)

I am so very grateful for each of you who choose to unroll your mat with me.  You inspire me and my practice, you make me smile, laugh, and you push me to learn more so I can share it with you.  (And, you let me play crazy music in class!) I am so grateful to share Yoga time with you.

My deepest bow of gratitude ... from my heart to yours.

Holiday Yoga Session Begins Wed, 10/29 in Orange!

Fall should be the time for beginning to slow down. Just like trees and plants and nature ... the slowing down, quieting down, resting time begins. 

So tell me again how did this got to be the busiest time of year for humans?

The Holidays and Year-End stress seem go against everything that nature teaches us. We just never take the time to slow ourselves down. 

But, really … if not now, when?

How about .. right now?

Even though this time is busy, I hope you'll give yourself a gift. Some time to restore. Some time for Yoga. Join us.

Fall Yoga Session Begins Wed. Sept 3, 2014

The Bells Are Ready To Ring ~  It's Yoga Time!
Yoga brings refreshing goodness to body, mind, and heart.  All you have to do is unroll your mat, hop on it, and see where your spirit takes you. Even better -- do your Yoga with friends!  The Fall Session of PEACEFUL HANDS YOGA begins on Wednesday, September 3.

Yoga can create suppleness in the spine and back, tone and strengthen muscles, de-stress the brain, bolster the immune system, and brighten the heart (both the physical heart and the energetic one).  Isn't that worth your time?

Imagine how good you could feel if you did Yoga every week!

Yoga Classes
Mondays & Wednesdays
4:30 p.m. - Level 1
6:00 p.m. - Level 1 & Level 2

NEW 8-week session begins on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 
and is scheduled to run
through MONDAY, OCTOBER 27.

Classes are at PEACEFUL HANDS YOGA STUDIO, 307 Madison Road in Orange, Virginia.  We're in the historic Silk Mill building with our partner Hamiltons Day Spa.


Or make a commitment to Yoga & save!

8-CLASS SESSION – $72 (take any 8 classes during the session)
FULL SESSION – $120 (take as many of my Monday/Wednesday classes as you like during the session!)

Guarantee Your Spot On The Mat, by pre-registering. Just email me at 

My classes are appropriate for All Levels, including Beginners.

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 early class more comfortable for your needs.

I'm also delighted to offer Private Yoga Lessons. Unlike a class setting, a private Yoga session is uniquely created for your needs -- focusing on the many ways that Yoga can benefit the body, mind, and spirit. It is a lovely way to take your practice to the next level, help in the recovery from injury or illness, or simply to explore Yoga at your own pace. If you're interested email me at

Class info and updates are online at
