My name is Cindy Simonetti. I've lived in Alabaster for 25 years, and with the exception of about ten years, I've worked in advertising and corporate communications for almost 30 years. During that 10 year period, I took a break from working in an office, freelancing as a corporate writer at night, devoting my days to my two young boys. Suffering from genetic, chronic back pain, I finally took the advice of my friends, doctors, and PTs and started practicing yoga. I started working on my certification after only a couple of years of practice. As a teacher, I developed a great following, ultimately teaching several classes per week, and feeling great about the impact I was having on the health and well-being of my students. Several years later, I was recruited back into corporate America but always knew I wanted to open my own studio. At first, I was able to keep attending classes sporadically. However, 10-12 hour work days, coupled with kids and their activities took precedent over my practice. Bad idea. After several rough blows (with both my family and health) I recently decided that it was time to make my dream a reality. I am happy to introduce, The Yoga Loft. Until now, Alabaster didn't have a yoga studio. We have gyms that offer yoga classes, but not a yoga studio. The difference is a serene environment for people of all shapes, sizes, and levels of fitness. I have built a community of yogis who help, laugh, and socialize with each other. We are a no judgment zone, and above all, a noncompetitive environment. The Loft has a full bathroom with shower, a great dressing area, and two spaces to hang out with fellow yogi's-one inside, one outside under a covered balcony. While a kitchen does exist in the unit, I don't offer any type of food service, but you will always find complimentary bottled water and cold mint/eucalyptus cloths in the fridge. I do hope you will come by Alabaster's premiere Yoga studio, where there is always a welcome mat for you. Here's to your peace and good health in 2017! Namasté

The Yoga Loft of Alabaster
Happy New Year yogis! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are as ready to get back to your yoga practice as I am.
As the first full work week of the new year opens, the Loft also reopens for the new year tonight with Yin at 5:30pm and Beginner+ at 7:00pm. We’ll see the 9am yogis beginning tomorrow!
No changes to the class days, times, or prices have been made for 2020. In fact, I’m excited to announce the huge addition of comprehensive skincare, spa, & wellness services rolling in throughout the month! This addition does however come with a bittersweet announcement.
As many of you know, my health took a significant blow last year, declining more rapidly than expected in the fall. If you’re a Loft member, you’ve heard me say, “Take care of you”, in almost every class. If you’re a regular, you know I’m a few bellyflopped chatarangas past taking my own advice. So it’s time for me to step back, give my body a break, and put the necessary time/effort toward finding some answers.
To do this meant making a decision that in my heart I wasn’t ready to make. Little did I know, someone very special to me was searching for the very thing I was about to have to let go. With an 11th hour Christmas Eve signing, I couldn’t be happier to announce:
Jessica Williamson (a sub/our massage therapist) is the new owner of the studio. J.Leah’s Yoga, Skincare, & Wellness Loft!
I know you have a lot of questions. An FAQs page will go up today or tomorrow on theyogaloft.life. For now, just rest assured that you are in good hands. Nothing has changed in the background except for the owner. So just come to practice as usual-I will still be teaching the 9am classes, but Jessica will teach the evenings.
You’ve got an amazing 2020 coming your way. But I won’t spoil Jessica’s fun. She will fill you in on all of that!
I cannot thank my members enough for your patience, kindness, help, emergency rides, and even help with my Mother. You all hold within, the true essence of peace, love, and light.
I will follow up with a more personal message but for now, and with the utmost of gratitude,
From my heart to yours, Namaste.
Big news today. Big.
Extended until 12/24/19 OR until the last five are sold, whichever comes first.
Unlimited practice for 3 months. Includes lavender eye pillow.
After back to back posture and strength weeks, we’re flowing with familiar poses in harmony with the sound and feel of our breath.
Text “me” to (205) 790-3727 to take advantage of this deal!
Reminiscent of the 10:00 terrors class, where there’s a wall, there’s a way. Balance and Goals (freestyle class).
I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow for a great new series-
And a sun salutation C!
TYL replaced disposable plastic water bottles with a water cooler and in-studio use water bottles. Every small change makes a big difference when it comes to healing our planet.
Halloween is always an evening we close the Yoga Loft. Whether trick or treating with your kids, giving candy at your door, going to a party, or hiding out treating yourself to the candy, many neighborhoods are full of precious kids and heavy traffic. We will have a 9am class, and if anyone wants a lunch break class at 11:00am, I’m taking reservations for that as well. Just text me or post below.
As for candy, I hope to have the boozy candy back in stock by then!
When you can never look at the same spot the same way again. #cameracapture #justaddlight

Restorative yoga doing its thing...
After 30 years in Corporate America, many events collided into a unique opportunity for me to do something I had been dreaming of for years--open a yoga studio designed for everyday people; one accessible to virtually everyone. On January 9, 2017 I opened the doors to Alabaster’s premiere yoga studio, The Yoga Loft.
TYL is a little different than some studios I’ve attended. Here, you’ll find:
-A peaceful studio that is tucked away above Brooklere Pharmacy-not in a gym that’s either noisy, uncomfortable for many to walk through, or hold classes in a fishbowl of glass walls.
-A true multi-level environment. In some classes, you may see all members on the mat. In others, someone may be practicing in a chair or against the wall, sitting on a bolster or using props, while others are practicing advanced poses that even I don’t do anymore.
-Acceptance. We are a no judgment and no competition zone. We don’t practice in front of mirrors. And we have members of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. And at any time, we may have members from 18-80.
-No chanting or speaking Sanskrit. I DO say Namaste (nah-muh-stay) at the end but it is not required of anyone to say it back. It simply means that I am honored and grateful to have practiced with you--it is NOT a sign of worship to me.
-No aggressive physical adjustments. I have cards at the top of each mat that say yes on one side, no on the other. If a card is turned to yes, I will help you by gently moving an arm, touching a foot or knee, etc. and it will only be to ensure members aren’t doing something that could cause injury, to help find a modification, spot, or to provide my special final relaxation eye massage. If a card is flipped to NO, I will use more extensive verbal cues or skip final relaxation massage.
Please visit www.theyogaloft.life for more information about our classes, affordable pricing, and more. Be sure to “Like” us on this page. Follow us on Instagram @theyogaloftalabaster. Or even better, drop in for a class at The Yoga Loft studio; where a welcome mat is always waiting for you. Here's to your peace and good health! Peace, Love, and Light
