Tara Abbey women we support in Nepal!
Here are the young women that we support at Tara Abbey. Their education at the Shree Mangal Dvip School is provided through your generous donations at our Yoga in the Park classes. Our donations also pay for their living expenses at Tara Abbey.
Education in Nepal for women is almost non existent, with your help we are making a real difference in the lives of these women and the people that they help through their studies.
I want to really thank each of you for your support, the Saturday donation based class has always been the primary means of collecting donations, late last year I started asking everyone who takes my class to try and make at least one day a week a donation based class. This has really helped, we will easily meet our support requirements for these women and my hope is to help with other expenses for Tara Abbey as the year progresses.
If you would like additional information on Tara Abbey, The Himalayan Children’s Fund or Shree Mangal Dvip School please see their web sites below.

Yoga in the Park Basic Class Etiquette
As we start 2012 and get new people out for our classes, I feel it necessary to remind people of my expectations for our class. We have the luxury of being outside so we have more latitude than most studios, however there are some things that just make the time we have together better for all of us, to that end I hope you will all take these requests into consideration when you attend Yoga in the Park.
1. Try to be on time, we start at 8am sharp, if you have to arrive late, still come, just come in quietly and take up a spot.
2. Cell phone are never appreciated, if you bring one make sure it is off!
3. Please don’t bring your children, dog or pet to class, they are a distraction to all of us. Children are welcome if they have their own mat and are capable of staying with the class without interruption.
4. If you need to leave early, please leave before we start shavasana, never get up and leave after we have started shavasana, this is a quite period and we don’t want people walking, picking up their belongings, talking, etc. If you have stayed this long stay till the end, this is a basic courtesy to me the instructor.
Please do bring your friends, it is also very nice to see people early and if you want some special guidance this is the time to ask for individual help. I am usually able to talk with you after class as well. I hope our class continues to grow; it is always a real pleasure to see new faces.
Thanks for your understanding of my basic class rules.

I hope your Holidays are wonderful and I hope that you will support my slight change to the weekday classes.

Yoga in the Park Donations
Thanks again for your generous support, I hope I see you at yoga soon.

Special notice: All classes from Saturday, November 5th through Saturday, November 12th will be donation based classes!
Special Fund Raising effort for Tara Abbey in Nepal
As most of you are aware the funds I receive from the Saturday yoga classes and the Massage work I do goes to support 10 young women through the Himalayan Children's Fund at Tara Abbey and their educational and living expenses. Tara Abbey is in need of some infrastructure improvements that require additional funding. There are several events going on around Orange County to try and support this need. To that end for the Week starting November 5th and through November 12th all classes will be donation based classes, as always the requested donation is $5, however all donation are welcome. I try to keep most of my classes Free and a community service, but once in a while I make this kind of change, I hope you all will get out and support this effort. If you are unable to attend class during this week and would still like to donate, please feel free to send me your donation, checks should be made out to the Himalayan Children’s Fund and mailed to me at: 775 Oak Street, Laguna Beach, CA 92651.
On Saturday November 12th there is a special event at the Home of Arlene Dorius in Newport Beach for the "2011 Bazaar on Behalf of Tara Abbey". My efforts from the donations for the week of November 5th will be added to the funds from this Bazaar, all for Tara Abby. All of you are invited and I hope you can join us at the Bazaar. I have attached a flier for the event with all the details and directions. During the Bazaar there will be a drawing for two special items, a White Tara Thanka and a Pearl Strand. Tickets for the drawing are $20 each. If you would like to purchase a ticket for the drawing I will have tickets with me at class. There is a flier attached that gives more detail on the drawing and the items. There is no need to be present to win, I will be there and collect items that our group might win.
As we enter the Holiday season, I hope you will all join me at yoga and the support of Tara Abbey in Nepal, our support really does make a difference!

Yoga in the Park at The Montage Public Park(Treasure Island Park)
Saturday, July 02, 2011
New extra Inversion classes on Tuesdays & Thursdays!
Friday, June 24, 2011
Yoga in the Park moves to the Montage Public Park(Treasure Island Park)!
The real fact that I took into consideration, was that when we were at Heisler Park everyone preferred to be on the cement, not the grass, we ended up blocking pathways and not using the grass.We will eventually get complaints to the City and will be back fighting for our space. I recognize that the Montage is a bit less convenient for all of us, but once there, it is no-doubt the best space, we have unlimited room for everyone to be on a flat solid space with ocean all around us, the walkers are fewer and the whole space is just more tranquil.
I know this will be disappointing to some, but I hope it will not keep you from our class. We will start classes at the Montage Public Park tomorrow, Saturday!

5 Year Anniversary for Yoga in the Park
Many of you have been regulars for years, it has been such great fun to work with all of you. We are so fortunate to live in Laguna Beach, and have the locations we have to practice. With all of your Saturday yoga donations we are now sponsoring 10 girls at Tara Abbey in Nepal. I email with these girls and I can assure you that our support is both needed and appreciated.
Thanks for being part of my class, for giving to Tara Abbey and hanging in there, in what I think are some of the most challenging yoga classes in town.

Yoga in the Park to try a new Location! Montage Public Park
The noise and traffic around Heisler Park is starting to really encroach on our Yoga Class. For the rest of this week through Thursday we will try the grass area at the Montage Resort,( The Public Park Section, see photo above). There is parking on PCH (metered), and across the street in the Shopping center. Access is down the steps at the north end of the Resort, at the bottom of the stairs go to the right, we will set up on the grass at the north end of the open area by the Gazebos. Just look for me and the music. It should be fun to try a new spot and it is just as beautiful as Heisler, hopefully without the noise.
So please make the effort to come, I hope I see you all out there starting Tomorrow!

Touch 101 Class was canceled due to my illness
I am just getting ready to start a new class for Touch 101. I like to
have 4 to 6 people for the class. If you are interested I am
considering doing classes in the future. Let me know if you
have any interest. Also, let me know if you have any friends that you think would
like to take it with you, as you can see the class size is small so it
usually fills quickly. The recommended donation would be $75 and
includes all supplies and a work book for you to keep.
I had a large interest in the prior Touch 101 massage classes as
they filled quickly many of you were unable to attend. This class
will be the same, maybe even better, as we have learned form the
earlier classes things that should make this one that much stronger.
There will only be 6 slots for each class.
This class will start at 10:30am on
a given day and go till about 4:30pm that day. If you like
massage, and like to give as well as receive, this is a class for you.
The class is held at my home and we will be working on massage
tables. While I will be offering couples classes in the future this
class is limited to women only. If you took one of the prior Touch
classes and would like to take this class you are welcome as
well ( repeat participants pay only $50).
This is a small class , in a workshop approach, with lots of hands on
in the proper techniques of massage. All proceeds will go to Tara
Abbey Schools, "Himalayan Children's Fund". Final Space in the
class can only be confirmed upon the receipt of your donation. If you
have any questions please email me or talk to me at yoga.
