Hello!! Its almost been a year since my Dad died. Since then clearing out his life on his farm has been a full time job as I live in the same "neck of the woods" and am his first born daughter. Aside from sorting, cleaning, hauling, lifting, scrubbing, packing, throwing, (swearing) and shedding tears, I discovered endless treasures that defined his life and mine. It has been a thrill to find things that he hauled to northern Minnesota from my childhood in Mpls. Things that were my Moms who died when I was 14, things that we made in school, etc. Obviously teaching Yoga was not a priority or a possibility due to Covid 19. When The Clearing opened up, I lit up, and I do have intentions for this fall. By the middle of the month I will have one less home and I canbegin to heal my body as stress has turned me into a hot mess! I did take time to breathe in fully, breathe out slowly, and throw in a down dog once in awhile this summer but my "whole self" is crying out for more! I love teaching Yoga so heres what I indend to do this fall:
Kripalu Yoga Classes: ( for Boomers but you wont be carded) are the same: Tuesday 5:30 and Thursday 10:00 $10, you need to let me know if you are coming (or not if you are a regular) as the studio can safely serve 6 bodies max. I will add more small classes if need be.
Ambi Yoga Videos: The first one was made this summer and another will be made this month. I honestly have had no time to work with the Videotographer or figure out how to launch them but I will. You will be able to purchase them online to do at home in October when were back inside more.
Mini Retreats: The one day Mini Retreat with Sudha Lundeen was a wonderful, fabulous, outside, love fest. A seven hour informative, relaxing, beautiful experience with Kripalu,s Goddess of Self Care. She was awed by Benidjis cool women as well. INTENTION: bring you more workshop opptunities for practice and learning with True North Collaborators .How? I dont know yet but we are a creative force so stay tuned.
Yoga for Immunity Strengthening: Kim Hegland, Yoga Teacher specialiizing in populations with special issues (like cancer recovery) will be teachings a small group on Sunday evenings at The Clearing. Contact me if you are interested and I will connect you to her. She will do this until the end of Oct.
I want to THANK YOU dear students, colleagues, friends, family, for your ongoing love and support while I navigated through The Farm. My Dad started buying the land as a very young man when he got out of the Navy. He planted Norway Pines, he had an old farmhouse until he left the Twin Cities, he built a new house and its now being passed on to a rural family who will love it. My brother and I still have 165 acres to roam reminding me of how Scandinavian I am, how connected to nature I am/we are here in the North Woods.
HAPPY FALL, SHANTE OM, Ambi
