During this unprecedented time, I hope everyone is staying safe and well, both for yourself and as a means to protect the most vulnerable within our population. My family has been practicing social distancing since March 14th. We do what we can to support local businesses from a distance and we use technology to connect with loved ones. We are using this time to come together to take care of our home and yard; we make cooking family dinners exploratory and fun by trying out new recipes (and googling ingredient substitutes when we can't find certain items at the store!)--in short, we take it day by day and just do our best to appreciate joy where we find it. I've noticed that I have to limit the amount of news I read online each day to keep fear and anxiety in check, so I'm doing that. I also make time to get outside every day, to move my body, breathe, and practice some stillness.
Heart Tree Yoga continues serve clients with private 1-hour yoga therapy sessions using the Zoom online platform. We welcome the opportunity to serve you in this uncertain and fluid time. You can reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an online session.
There are many wonderful online offerings right now--and occasionally those may not meet a person's individual needs and state of being. Heart Tree Yoga has the ability to customize a yoga practice to meet your specific needs, whether you are dealing with physical pain and tension, in recovery from a particular injury or condition, or navigating symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression.
You are not alone and we can help.

I am posting a free weekly 30-min yoga class for 3-5 year olds on my Heart Tree Yoga youtube channel, found here: www.youtube.com/channel/UCNAdtss5yUkpgSYNpxqAKDg?view_as=subscriber. This is to help the mamas and papas out there with their kiddos at home.
May you be well.
May you be safe.
May you be surrounded by kindness and love.
May you be at peace.
