June Third Friday Event
June 21, 7:30 - 9 p.m.
Come immerse yourself in the healing vibrations of gongs and singing bowls provided by local musician Bill Smith.
The session will involve sitting or lying on the floor while the sound waves of gongs wash over you. Gongs are one of the oldest instruments and represent the universal sound of OM.
In recent years, scientists have proven what mystics have known for centuries - that the vibrational qualities of gongs can provide healing on a cellular level. Real benefits for the mind and body can result from absorbing these sonic vibrations.
Bill Smith is a drummer/percussionist who grew up with a passion for sound and rhythm. Early exposure to rock music and later jazz and 10th Century classical, greatly influenced his musical direction. His first solo CD (2011) entitled "Music for Gongs, Bells and Singing Bowls" reflects his interest in world music and the instrumental group of gongs and singing bowls.
Cost is $12 per person.
Please bring your yoga mat.

Bring your partner to our Summer Couples Yoga Class even if he or she has never been on a yoga mat. You know how you have wanted to introduce your partner to the benefits of yoga, so now you have the perfect opportunity to do so.
The goal of this class is to bring you closer together through the practice of yoga. You will develop a deeper intimacy in this class, followed by a sweet evening no matter how you decide to finish it.

Love is all around us and it starts to sizzle in the warm summer air. Sign up soon as studio space is limited when we are working in couples.

A Retrospective of his Artwork and Vision
May 10 - June 22
Friday, June 7, 5-7 p.m.
Eleanor & Egbert Davis Gallery in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts
"Sometimes I feel lost. Painting shows me the way...."
This retrospective exhibition is a tribute to the artistry and vision of Billy McClain. Most of us knew Billy as a yoga teacher, but he was also the former program director and an instructor at the Sawtooth School. His artwork is beautiful, and this exhibit will show you a side of Billy that many of you may not have experienced.
To celebrate Billy's life, the following yoga classes will be held in the Gallery surrounded by Billy's artwork and filled with his presence. There is no charge for these classes, but donations will be accepted for the Sawtooth School.
Please bring your yoga mats.

Jacob's seven-week meditation class will start in September, and many of our teachers include meditation as part of their weekly classes.
But, if you are curious about meditation now and want to experience more styles, need a quiet moment to unwind, or are interested in a weekly, lunch-time opportunity to re-charge your energy, then our twice-weekly Meditation Circle is for you.
Join us on Wednesdays at the Golden Flower Tai Chi Center, and on Fridays at the Yoga Gallery. Both gatherings are from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m.
There is no cost, but we gladly accept donations to show appreciation to our teachers.

Mondays, July 8 through August 12, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Our six-week Novice class is designed for those who may be tentative about attending a regular class for fear of winding up next to a ballerina who can tie her body in complex knots, or simply being in a class where you will be the only beginner.
This class is for people just like you, with the promise that each and every pose will be broken down and modified for you. Print-outs will be given after most of the classes to help you practice at home. At the end of this six-week session you will feel confident continuing on in our regular classes.
If you are interested, call 336-725-4119, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, to discuss any particular physical problems or concerns that you may have. Pre-registration is important for this class as it tends to fill quickly.
The class requires a commitment of six consecutive Mondays, July 8 thru August 12.
Purchase your class card here or call 336-725-4119 or 655-7047.
