Updates on classes and workshops

Jess may begin teaching some “in-studio” classes beginning Monday November 30th. Numbers are rising in Dutchess county. Always check to see if your class is running.
It is not without concern; questions arise – will anyone come back? will they be safe? will the restrictions placed on “in studio” classes take away from the experience of practice? I don’t know the answer to these questions…But, it is the next step to take, and it will be taken carefully……thank you for your patience and understanding.

How it will work?

  • on-line classes will run concurrently with in-studio classes.
  • masks will be required.
  • bring your own props or rent a prop kit on a monthly basis that can be left at the studio with your name on it.
  • sign up on momoyoga will be required for all in-studio classes. No walk-ins please.
  • registration for in studio classes will be one class at a time. You will reserve your in-studio spot, there will be no refunds for no shows.
  • only 4 people are permitted into the studio for class to a designated space.
  • wait outside the studio and one person at a time will be allowed to enter the studio.
  • answer and sign travel/covid related questions.
  • receive a no-contact temperature screening.
  • The studio will be cleaned after each class and hand sanitizer and masks will be available.
  • Zoom classes will be $15 (pranayama remains at $10) and in studio classes will be $18.
  • If you have remaining classes on your studio class card, they can be applied to your momoyoga account and used for “in-studio” classes. please email Jess once you have a momoyoga account to have your classes transferred to your momoyoga account

I will send another email out November 20th with the schedule for “in studio” classes

Our pledge to you…

No one is too stiff, too out of shape, too stressed, or too old to begin Iyengar yoga. Understanding and helping you is the basis of our teaching methodology.   Contact clearyogarhinebeck@gmail.com, or 845 546 YOGA. to discuss your goals and condition, and she will help you set a course of action for you. All that is required is a willingness to learn and to face your challenges steadily, one step at a time.

Folks who practice Iyengar Yoga get stronger very quickly.

Aches and pains disappear with regular practice, and after a while, Iyengar Yoga students say they are much stronger, more flexible, and have a higher level of endurance.

Whatever yoga that you learn has to make you a better human being.  That’s our foremost Dharma (duty) and Iyengar Yoga definitely is meant for that ultimately.  But you can’t start with that.  You won’t join a yoga class because you want to live like a lotus flower.  You will join a yoga class becauseyou want to get rid of pain, you want to improve your flexibility.  So with any aim you can come to a yoga class but once you start your classes; you attend the classes regularly; you take up practice; changes will happen automatically on their own.  You just have to have an open mind to see that in hindsight.

Five, six years down the line you look back and you realize this change has happened.  Oh! I was more reactive, but now my responses are more controlled.  Oh! I used to be lazy, but now I’m not.  So this happens in hindsight.  Then you realize how Iyengar Yoga has touched you.

But you cannot start with that aim. ….start with the aim to gain the health, but later once you accept it, yoga makes the transformation possible.”

Abhijata Sridhar Iyengar (from the Dallas Convention 2019.)
