A Moment to Pause

Seasons Greetings Friends and Family!

Thank you to all who attended the Grand Opening Celebration! The turn out was enormous and I am so humbled and honored to receive your support. 

Over the course of the night, I took a moment pause, observe the festivities, and reflect. The energy of the studio space was vibrant and full of love. In this moment looking at familiar and new faces, I was overwhelmed with happiness. Each and everyone of you plays a role in the building of this studio's existence. And for that, I am grateful. I hope that you all had a good time mingling, eating and celebrating with the wonderful Spectra community. It really takes a village to raise a child and there is no way that Spectra Yoga could have been born without my wonderful staff, instructors, students, construction crew, and mostly my family. 

For this holiday season, my wish for everyone is to take a moment to also pause to reflect on the amazing role we play in each other's lives. Whether big or small, all of our interactions help us to grow, learn, evolve, and feel loved. So spread this beautiful love and have a Merry Holiday!

With Love,

Spectra Soft Opening!!!

Dear Friends,

The wait is finally over! Spectra Yoga's opening has arrived! After 11 months of planning, organizing, and laboring, I am so happy to announce that the studio's soft opening day is Monday November 9, 2015. The first class of the day is my Yogalates class at 4:30 pm. For additional classes and times, please check the website under "Class Schedule."  

All new students get a Free Week* to enjoy and explore the classes offered at the studio. 

Thank you all so much for your patience and support in helping to make this amazing dream now a reality. It's been a long and rough road but I have learned a lot and really look forward to meeting you all soon. 

Welcome to Spectra Yoga!

*7 consecutive days of Yoga/Meditation/TRX (Aerial Yoga excluded from Free Week)

Pratipaksha Bhavana

Namaste Everyone,

I think that the Universe is teaching me a lesson in patience, understanding, and staying positive. The studio's opening has again been pushed back to the end of September/early October. Some scheduling issues with regards to light fixtures have cause this latest turn of delays.

I could sit here frustrated, angry, and worried, but in Yoga there's a practice called Pratipaksha Bhavana, which literally means "moving to the other side of the mansion." The main point is to transcend the negative thoughts and move towards more positive thinking. So even though the studio's opening day delay is causing some downward vibes, I am turning this experience into something that I can learn from. Worry is a waste of energy that doesn't propel me forward and I know that patience will bring me peace.

Ultimately, the light at the end of this tunnel is getting brighter and brighter everyday. All good things come with time and it will be a glorious first day when I am finally open. So I hope that you all can help me and send positive blessings to the construction process and people involved in bringing Spectra Yoga to life. 

See you all on the other side of the mansion!

Almost There!!

Hello Dear Friends,

As the summer time rolls through, I hope you are taking time for vacations, family, and fun! Everyone here behind the scenes at Spectra Yoga is working hard everyday to get the studio open as soon as possible. Construction is moving along nicely and we will soon be ready to paint some walls, place flooring down, and decorate! I am extremely excited to be sharing this space with you come September. 

Although the studio space is not yet ready, Spectra School of Yoga will continue our first 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Certification as scheduled. We will start Sunday July 12 and we are still taking last minute sign ups. Check out the 200 Hour Teacher Training page for more details. The training will be led by the extraordinary Melissa Christensen and Colleen Hieber. I will be adding some color and knowledge here and there as well. 

I send my love, blessings, and gratitude to all who stop to visit this page and read this message.

Update: In the Hands of the Universe

Hello All,

As much as I would love to write a post announcing that Spectra Yoga's construction is on time and that I will be open in June, I cannot. With various hiccups and unforeseen circumstances, Spectra Yoga's opening is now planned for sometime in August. A final date will be announced as it gets closer. 

With the stress and chaos of starting my own business, I have learned to trust and allow that I am in the hands of the universe. Everything is happening as it should as long as we are all open to being guided by a power greater than us all. 

For the time being, thank you to those of you who have showed your support by liking the Facebook page, signing up for the newsletter, and creating your studio accounts via the web page.

In Gratitude,

A Morning View in Bali

This was my view at 6 am when I was in Bali. What was I doing up at 6 am you ask? Yoga, of course! Upon stepping on the sands of Nusa Dua Beach, I was mesmerized by the skyline and refection of the landscape in the water. Bali is a magical island, full of amazing people and landscapes. I hope to take this beautiful energy and pour it into every part of Spectra Yoga.
