With the Persian New Year, or Nowruz (which beautifully translates to “new day”) just around the corner, we’re in the spirit of celebrating a fresh start at Shockoe Slip Yoga. This time of year in the Persian calendar is a great reminder that ANY day of the year can be perfect for a brand new start—transitions, transformations, and exciting resolutions don’t always arrive on an exact schedule, after all.
Speaking of brand new starts, we’ve got a brand new class for you this month! In honor of both the Persian New Year and the Spring Equinox, Rose will be hosting her new signature class! This special Persian Flow is designed to help you leave all those wintertime vibes behind by grounding you in the spirit of reawakening and guiding you through a series of poses that will open up and invigorate your heart and throat chakras. This upbeat, all-levels Vinyasa flow will start with an introduction to the traditional festivities of the Persian New Year (including a fun, one-of-a-kind Persian music playlist!) followed by a mindful grounding, and some deeper heart and throat chakra work. The world comes alive in the springtime, and this class is guaranteed to increase your vibration and liven up your spirits as well.
Join us on Tuesday, March 20, from 5:45 – 7:00 PM for this special, donation-based class. (Pay what you can and come ready to flow!)
We’d also like to remind you of another special event we’ll be hosting later this year. If one of your personal goals for 2018 is to step outside your comfort zone and add a little adventure to your regularly-scheduled life, it’s the perfect time to check out our Relaxation + Friendship Retreat on the Amalfi Coast of Italy! During six days in October, we’ll share yoga practices and explore Italy together, getting to know one another and taking time to reconnect with ourselves. You’ll find new friendships, take time for some self-care, fall in love with your yoga mat all over again, and leave Italy feeling refreshed, reenergized, and restored—consider this another invitation for a fresh, new start!
