*********************************************

A special notice from Erika:  

To my friends, students and fellow yogi’s: with a heavy heart I am announcing that I am leaving Orchid Tree Yoga after July 8th 2017.   I have truly enjoyed my teaching experiences both here at Orchid Tree and formerly Orenda Yoga.  The students that have graced the studio are quality, amazing people.  I have made this difficult decision for the purpose of nurturing much needed balance in my life.

I hope to connect with the Orchid Tree community in the future in some capacity.  Please always feel free to reach out via email.

As always continue to follow your BEST: “Balanced life, Easy mind, Strong body, True yoga- with and without your mat!”

Namaste,

Erika Pelletier

 

Chair Yoga will be moving to Fridays at 9:30am starting Friday, July 7th.

*************************************************

Please be aware of the following cancellation:  The Restorative series that was being offered on Tuesday evenings
has been cancelled due to a death in the family.
This will be re-scheduled in the Fall.  Thank you for your patience.

Mothers of infants will learn massage & movement techniques to facilitate development, promote relaxation and better sleep, and decrease gas. Yoga creates a happy, healthy, balanced life, and practicing with your babies and kids will give them foundational tools to manage life & live peacefully.
