Start the new year with a special week in a beautiful yoga retreat center in Guatemala! (www.villasumaya.com) Join a group of interesting, creative people January 2-9, 2010 to practice yoga together and learn powerful tools for making lasting transformations in your life!
We have only two weeks left until registration closes for this amazing getaway!
Enjoy an upbeat morning yoga practice and then have the late morning and early/mid afternoon free for hiking around volcanoes, kayaking and swimming in Lake Atitlan or just relaxing. Finish the day with a late afternoon long, slow hip opening yoga class with meditation, breath work and journaling.
Kelley Gardner is an inspiring yoga teacher, gifted energy healer and owner of the Bindu. With humor and wisdom, she guides students in very practical and realistic ways to clear out the old patterns that obstruct our ability to envision and create our lives in the most meaningful way.
If past retreats are any indication, you’ll make new friends for life. There are only 2 weeks left to register – come by yourself or bring a friend and start 2010 in a transformational way.

As the weather turns crisp and the leaves drift into golden piles on the ground, I am constantly reminded that there is a time and a season for everything. Just as the seasons cycle through remarkable changes over the course of a year, so do our bodies over the course of our lives.
Our bodies carry us through our work in the world – and our play, love, laughter, worries, travel, exercise, childbearing, health or sickness, nourishment, and yes, even our age – all carve their mark on our bodies, affecting how we feel at this particular time of our life cycle.
There is a yoga class for every body, and Gentle Stretching might just fit the bill for yours at this time. Gentle Stretching is a class designed for anyone who wants to experience the deep benefits of yoga stretches, while treating their bodies gently.
Who Takes a Gentle Stretching Yoga Class, Anyway?
- You might be brand-new to yoga, wanting to “break yourself in” slowly.
- You might be a vibrantly active senior with touchy joints.
- You may be an experienced yogi who finds yourself injured, sick, or unusually busy, needing to step back a bit.
- You may be training for a sports event and wanting an extra day of stretching without impacting your training schedule.
- You may be pregnant, looking for stretches that will ease the discomfort and give you the relaxing space to connect with your baby
- Or, perhaps you simply want the chance to go deeper into some of the yoga stretches you experience in your more active yoga classes.
Whatever the reason, Gentle Stretching with Sari will give you a class with some mindful warming exercises, plenty of slow, delicious stretches, and restorative poses that will leave you feeling refreshed, centered, and full of ease. What an incredible gift to yourself! Class during the week is on Saturday from 10:30-11:45 a.m.
As the season of autumn invites you to turn your attention inward, we invite you to reflect on your body’s needs and see whether it’s asking you for some Gentle Stretching. As a regular practice or an occasional treat, everybody can benefit from some tender treatment!

The first month at the Bindu has been quite a ride…
Everyone getting to know each other, finding the groove with classes, clients, workshops, planning, teaching, playing, and simply loving the new space.
Our students are loving the opportunity to practice the elegant principles of Anusara yoga – whether they are taking a gentle stretch class, power vinyasa, or pilates/yoga fusion. Students who never thought they could do a back bend are jazzed about back bends now!
