Operating as usual


Missed the festivities of a week with friends in Wisconsin, but had a beautiful sunny day rollerskiing the virtual Birkie in the Bosque with Shana. Can't believe I have the fastest virtual Birkie classic time so far!


Although I'm not there in person to hold your babies, I am still here online to support moms with online yoga every Monday morning ❤️

Private online sessions are also available for prenatal, postpartum, and therapeutic yoga for acute or chronic injuries or illness, as well as an all-levels group class on Wednesday evenings.


It has been so wonderful to be with friends on their yoga mats, even if it is virtually! I am offering 4 online classes each week, with discounted prices available to make yoga more accessible to anyone who needs it now.

For a detailed description of the classes or to sign up, please go to our website: And please pass this on to anyone you know who may be interested in some movement and stress relief, especially pregnant mamas and new parents!

Wednesday's Revitalize & Restore class is all-levels and open to everyone. No yoga experience needed for any of the classes.


Sandia Nordic Ski Club

Ready to take your cross country skiing skills to the next level? Please join us on Sunday, January 26th from 10 AM to Noon for a FREE Sandia Nordic ski clinic. Jon Dellios and Karl Walczak will be providing instruction on classic and skate skiing techniques for skiers of all abilities from beginner to advanced. If you are interested in attending, please send an email to [email protected]

The clinic will take place on the Service Road just below the Gravel Pit, which is located approximately 0.2 miles south of the Ellis Parking lot. Participants should have their own equipment and plan on meeting at the Ellis parking lot at 10 AM. Classic skiers who are interested in the nuances of kick wax selection should bring their assortment of kick wax with them, as Jon will be prepared to provide advice in that area. Please note that the clinic will be focusing on classic and skate skiing on a groomed track; there will not be a focus on backcountry skiing.

We will also have a hospitality table with hot apple cider and cookies set up at the Gravel Pit on the 26th. Come on out and learn about Sandia Nordic's mission, and our plans for the future. Our grooming equipment will also be on display, so bring your kiddos and get some pics of them on the Grizzly!

Hope to see you at the Clinic on the 26th!

Babying your back may delay healing - Harvard Health

This article from Harvard highlights the importance of movement and exercise to maintain or regain a healthy back. As the article indicates, most people "throw out their backs" doing simple everyday tasks rather than during extreme effort. Movement helps to soothe the nervous system and the breathing and relaxation done during yoga is an added bonus. This is why we have Yoga for a Healthy Back on Fridays from 3:00-4:15. We use restorative poses, in combination with strengthening, stretching, and traction to create more stability and ease in your back so you can enjoy all that life has to offer. Go to to sign up. Your first class is free! Back pain often comes on without warning and will usually get better on its own, even when imaging shows changes such as arthritis and disc degeneration. The best way to treat back pain is to avoid prolonged rest and stay active instead. Aggressive i...

[11/14/17]   Something to ponder....
“The greatest investment you can make for a happy, healthy life is loving yourself through your words, your thoughts, and your actions. A healthy body means a healthy mind: a healthy mind means more happiness and joy, and a healthy body means more energy and strength. Imagine yourself in a world where you and the people you share the planet with are happier, healthier, and stronger. How much support for each other and the planet could we provide when we start from a strong foundation of health?”
Wise words from Louise Hay
