Ravi Returns to Turtle Haven

April. Ravi Retreat 2020

1/15/20 Wednesday Yoga Cancelled

From all appearances as I peer out at the snow beautifully floating downward to earth, and then gaze at the forecast on my computer screen, there seems to be no sense in waiting longer: yoga class for Wednesday evening 1/15 is cancelled and will be rescheduled, in addition to the class from this morning. Will keep students posted! Meanwhile, hoping to resume NEXT week, and that those who are reading this can find pleasure in the beauty of winter weather!

Hoping you all have had wonderful holidays thus far!
I am happy to report that the Winter fundraiser for those in need of shelter and home in our county was a success. Together we raised nearly $800, and I was able to contribute props for the classes I will teach at Agape House, as well as cash donations to the YWCA and Homesnow. Many thanks for all who contributed! Susan Roland sold many Maher items at Assumption Church and after our yoga classes, and raised funds now passed along to Sister Lucy and Maher. Thanks to Susan, and to all who made purchases for such a wonderful cause!

I look forward to resuming classes at Turtle Haven next week, on Tuesday January 7th, and Wednesday, January 8th. Please do register in advance following the instuctions on the flyer. Happy New Year! Winter Yoga Flyer_2019+2020
