Two Announcements

Hi, yogis!
The weather seems to be turning around and agreeing with the calendar that it's spring. Here's just a quick reminder that Leila's class this Tuesday, April 17th, is canceled.
Also, treat yourself this Friday and come out to Mind Matters's fair on Cross Campus, around 205 Elm St from noon to 3pm. Genevieve will be teaching a quick half hour class at 12:45 (bring your own mat!). The fair aims to promote a stress-free atmosphere to discuss mental health issues. There will be 10 booths with activities to choose from, a raffle for a TV amongst other prizes, food, and more! The event is organized in partnership with the Jordan Porco suicide prevention foundation; check out what they do here:
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Hi, yogis!

We hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and warmer weather! Unfortunately, Genevieve’s class tomorrow will be canceled. No Morse-Stiles at 4:30 :’( It’s your chance to take a nice walk in the rain, listen to some nature sounds! (Or New Haven sounds really) But nevertheless, enjoy your Friday!

All the best,

Class Updates

Hi yogis! 

MAJOR apologies for any confusion recently regarding classes.  Here is a quick update on the next few weeks. 

Class for today (Tuesday 4/12) is cancelled due to a space conflict.  All other classes are running as usual for the rest of the term, and we have worked out our recent issues with the Slifka Chapel (thank you all for your patience on this!).  

Next week we will have a special guest teacher joining us!  We are very excited about this event, so stay tuned for more details!  

Again, huge apologies from our end regarding space and instructor conflicts.  You can blame Corinne's double theses for recent lapses in communication! 

Keep your eyes on your email for more information on next week's guest!
