Greetings For The Fall Season

My wife Rosey and I are on our way back to San Francisco this morning. I am teaching Saturday night and Sunday morning so I hope to see you in class. I will be around the studio as well so please come and introduce yourself if we haven't met. I always enjoy meeting new students and hearing of your experiences at Bernal Yoga. 

There are a lot of great upcoming workshops and events this month that you can read about below. On a special note, The Bernal Yoga Literary Series kicks off the 2010-2011 season. Soon after we opened Bernal Yoga, a few bright people (Ashley, David are you still out there?) had the vision to create this series and I'm happy to see it is still going strong.

Start your weekend off with a choice of relaxing restorative or Thai yoga massage workshops and as you transition into the Fall season we hope you continue to find inspiration, balance and strength in your practice.

Bill, Savonn and everyone at Bernal Yoga

More About Ann

  1. I'm a classically trained violinist who adores the music of J.S. Bach. He was a master of musical form and structure (most notably of the "fugue"), yet within seemingly rigid perimeters he was able to exercise the most fantastic and brilliant feats of creativity. When a particular yoga pose starts to feel stagnant or "boring," I immediately think of Johann Sebastian for inspiration.
  2. I find the basic 8-count rhythm of salsa music very grounding and consider dance one of my most joyful life practices. (I appreciate the awareness it brings to my feet!)
  3. I can talk for hours and hours about food and cooking. The food culture in San Francisco is one of the major reasons I moved to this city. I agree with Hippocrates wholeheartedly, "Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be food." 
  4. I love to travel, whether it be a day trip to to a nearby town or a plane ride across the globe. I enjoy experiencing different flora and fauna, trying new foods, and making friends! So please stop by the studio to say hello during my office hours!
  5. I have the most awesome sister, Jennifer, who also practices at Bernal Yoga. We don't look alike, but we sound exactly the same over the phone ... or so we have been told!  See if you can you identify her!
