I hope this newsletter finds you warm and cozy and fulfilling your dreams for 2010.  It's been a great start for Wavelengths' new studio in Norwood. The New Year Practice Intensive was full and regular classes are also very well attended or full.  I've added two new classes beginning in February as well as several workshops. It's not too late to sign up for classes.  The cost is always pro-rated depending on the number of classes left in the term. There are many classes that still have space and they're listed below and on the website.
I've also added Open House times where I will be at the studio and you can drop in, ask questions, register for classes or just check out the space. Those times are Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3 - 5 p.m. beginning on February 1, 2010.  I hope to see you there.
Please note: Family Day is February 15 and there WILL be regular yoga classes that evening.  If you miss the class because you're spending time with your family, remember you can make up missed classes within the same session at any other class in Norwood, Westwood or Peterborough (space permitting).

Explore body, mind and breath in a more challenging class where we hold postures longer and discover the sublte changes that occur as a result.

Group discussions and yoga philosophy will also make up a part of this class.
