•Evening classes are back. This Monday evening's class is free!
I have had several request for an evening class recently, so starting this week (May 20th) I will move the Monday 1pm Yoga Tree class to 6pm. Come one, come all. Bring a friend or two.
• Theme for this week's classes: It's the journey, not the destination
Yoga for most of us is a journey towards increased awareness and acceptance of the way things are. But letting go of our future-focused, goal-oriented mindset is a long journey, where we frequently find ourselves, like a mountaineer on a slope of loose rocks, taking two steps forward only to slide back one. Finding a place of stillness and full awareness at least in some yoga poses some of the time is a big step in the right direction.

• YouTube video channel now live
Go to http://www.youtube.com/user/yogamindyogabody to check out my yoga videos, and subscribe if you like what you see. The more people subscribe, the more freqently I will add new videos, with a focus on how-to videos emphasizing alignment.
• Google+ and TripAdvisor.com
The great thing about both these sites is that you can read (and write!) unbiased reviews of businesses you know. If you have an account on either website and feel inspired to write a short review, I would really appreciate it. Or just go and check out what other students of mine are saying:
(If your Google+ review does not appear right away do not worry. Google is experiencing some delays as they migrate products to Google+.)
My weekly theme and schedule are now available on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/YogaMindYogaBody
The greatest advantage of a Facebook page is that it enables a three-way dialog between me and you and my other students, so if you have any questions or comments about this week's theme, fire away.

"Gernot is a highly gifted teacher. I took his Intermediate Inversions Workshop and it was one of the most helpful, thorough, interactive workshops I've taken."
–Jenny (Yoga teacher, US)
"Thanks for an exhilarating and empowering Inversions workshop Gernot!"
"I only ever attended 2 of your clases (I was travelling in Chang Mai last year) but I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your little "tips" every week. I really like the focus you give to your classes. Last month I started a yoga teacher training course (here in Barcelona where I live) and I find your emails inspirational!! Thank you!
"Sadly I only had time for one private lesson with Gernot. I enjoyed so much receiving alignment instructions from you. Your explanations where so clear and you really took the time to see what I needed. Thank you for a wonderful 90 minutes."
-Henriette (Yoga teacher, Netherlands)
