Welcome to Yoga Tree

This Week at Hotchkiss Yoga Tree –  WE ARE CLOSED UNTIL the coronavirus is under control. Please keep checking this website for changes. Be safe and stay well.   AS I have not found the inspiration to do any online classes, here are several resources that may be helpful to you during these challenging times. These are some excellent video and audio recordings for you to learn from. This is a time to develop a home practice, to research and find what yoga is, inside of you.

For advice on how to get started on your own home practice by Richard Jonas of the Iyengar Yoga Institute in N.Y.C.

THE ANN ARBOR SCHOOL OF YOGA, LAURIE BLAKENEY Stay well and happy.    AASY Blog for practice guidance.

For clear pictures and some audio recordings from Aretha McKinney in Nashville from Chestnut Hill Yoga. (Scroll down for restorative poses, inversions, and more.) Remember that audio recordings can often deepen your practice more than video.
Roger Cole is a P.H.D. and Iyengar Yogi. In these two videos he explains how the restorative poses and basic yoga breathing affect us physiologically. These are inspirational in understanding why these actions are so helpful.
If the foundation is firm, the building can withstand calamities. The practice of yoga is the foundation, so that the self is not shaken under any circumstances.”
B.K.S. Iyengar
“When you start to take the spiritual warrior’s journey, you’re going to find that it’s often extremely inconvenient.”
Pema Chodron
