“Your greatness is not what you have, it’s what you give.” — Alice Hocker

We have had a series of unexpectedly wonderful in-kind donations this week as well as recent financial donations from our generous supporter pictured here with donation notes.

Of note, Greyson and Nolan raised almost $1000 for our Selah House kitchen and went shopping at Target to buy dishes, pans, and many other wonderful items in honor of their middle sister Raine . They handmade bracelets and made mask holders and sold them to neighbors! Greyson was explaining to someone who asked: “It’s a carefarm for abused and neglected animals and they help people who have had a kid that dies and helps the animals trust people.”

So many thanks to our others generous donors:

A weekend workshop with Desirée Rumbaugh
March 18-20, 2022

Please join us in welcoming Desirée Rumbaugh for a weekend of learning and laughter. In 1992 Desirée, a Phoenix native, opened one of the first yoga studios in the Scottsdale area. She holds certifications in Iyengar and Anusara Yoga and for the last 22 years has been traveling the world teaching workshops and retreats. Co-author of “Fearless After Fifty: How to Thrive with Grace, Grit and Yoga,” and creator of the “Yoga to the Rescue” DVD’s, she has also been recently featured on PBS’s “The Transformational Power of Yoga.”

All ages and levels are welcome to attend this workshop. Desirée’s passion is consolidating decades of learning and offering it simply, efficiently and with lovingkindness.

Friday night: 6-8:30pm
Recognize Your Power: Hips and Lower Back: Standing and Seated Poses
Begin the weekend learning the key to freedom in your hips and lower back. This simple —yet powerful— thread will be carried through all of the classes. The question is “how do we strengthen ourselves without becoming too hard?” Please join us to discover the answer.

Saturday 12:30-2:00pm
Re-ignite: Center and Strengthen Your Spine: Whether or not you love them or fear them, backbends are good for you. Join us to find out why they are so healing and what you can do to improve your knowledge of and relationship with your own unique spine.

Saturday 3:30-6:00pm
Renew Your Energy: Twists of All Kinds: It is only after we turn inward and discover our own inner strength that we begin to find balance in the dance of life with others on this planet. Strength and flexibility are interwoven in this skillful practice.

Sunday 12:30-2pm
Re-commit and Share: Full Spectrum Practice with New Tools:
After the first three classes, this workshop will give you a chance to try out the new tools you have gained during the weekend. A lifelong yoga practice is an uphill endeavor—-you will be consistently refining and re-creating your body/mind. With a new understanding of breath, core strength and flexibility you can challenge yourself to grow in all types of poses.

Saturday, March 5th

When you go deeply into the present, gratitude arises spontaneously, even if it’s just gratitude for breathing, gratitude for the aliveness that you feel in your body. Gratitude is there when you acknowledge the aliveness of the present moment. -Eckhart Tolle

Repost from - COMMUNITY 🙌🏼

Feeling the power of the collective is a great reminder of why we need community. It’s very important to recognize that we are not destined to live life alone, that’s just not how we’re made!

Experiences (like yoga) shared with other people are so vital for our own sense of connection and belonging, and without it, there can be a massive impact on our mental health, our physical health and our overall well-being!

Yes, there are important times for solitude and alone time. However, human connection is a must if we
truly want to thrive and feel alive ✌🏼💚




We are trilled to let you know that we will be adding Fundamental Flow, Led Primary Series, and Ashtanga Mix back to the class schedule with John beginning TOMORROW, Tuesday, June 1!

As you may have noticed, fitness facilities and studios around the valley have started to open. This past weekend we submitted our 4 page Covid-19 Procedures and Guidelines to the Arizona Department of Health. Prior to the shut down and going forward, all of our procedures and guidelines meet or exceed the CDC, AZDHS, and OSHA requirements for opening.

We are eagerly awaiting our approval from AZDHS this week 🤞🏽 and you will be the first to know! Until then, we will be counting down the minutes until we can unlock the front doors!⏱


At 3:42pm this afternoon we were notified by ADHS via email, "Thank you for your previous Attestation submission; however please note that you do not currently have authority to reopen based on this submission.”

This past week we have placed multiple calls to the Governor’s office and ADHS, and were given no information other than to keep checking their websites. At this time gyms in Maricopa County are not even able to apply for re-opening. There has been multiple court orders and a continued lack of information being given to business from the Governor's office and ADHS. We are very sad to see the Governor take an entire industry’s livelihood away and their ability to pull through this pandemic, especially an industry made up of so many small businesses.

We will continue to livestream and offer on demand classes until we can re-open.

Thank you for your continued support. 🙏🏽💙
