The month of May is already half over!  I was Out West and landed back in Bemidji along with spring!  So heres to let you know whats happening with Yoga for the remainder of the month:

TUES:  9:30 - 10:45  "Advanced Level" (seasoned yogis)

           11:00 - 12:15  Beginner/Moderate Level

THURS:  SAME AS ABOVE

Some people come twice a week and rotate between levels, some people have a spot saved once a week.  I need to know if you are coming (text is good) as there are SIX in the room. Its soon summer so coming and going will be the norm, including me!

We remain vigilent with co-vid protocal, masks are still required,  sometimes they can come off depending on how many are in the room and who shares mutual air! I ask that you be vaccinated. 

COST; $10 DONATION.  I do not keep track of your contributions, you can pay ahead if you want.  You can attend no matter what.  My intention is to flow with the new normal and serve.  Im dedicated to helping True North Health Care evolve as well.

Contact me with any questions or if you want to attend classes. The walk in option no longer exists in Yoga Studios!   

Shante OM,  AMBI

I am so happy to be able to teach YOGA this spring in the beautiful Clearing Studio LIVE!! The Spring Schedule will begin April 6.

Tuedays and Thursday classes:

9:30 - 10:45       Moderate / Advanced Level 

11:00 - 12:15     Beginning / Moderate Level

You are responsible for letting me know weekly if you will or will not be coming since spaces are limited.  I will be gone the first week of May but you will be given a reminder.

Note: Advanced class means that you have a practice and knowledge of asana and pranayama. In the other class I will focus more on technical instruction of postures and breathing exercises. I will reccomend which class is a fit for you.  I read the room whenever I teach and let prana and experience guide me, and your amazing bodies and energy drive me.

5 students (vaccinated) will be allowed in each class or 6  max if you breathe the same air and can be placed closer than 6 ft apart. Bring your own mat and props and we will continue to wear masks. 

COST: $10 donation per class.  I do not check whats given, so if you cant afford it do not worry. Put in what you can. I remain motiviated to help "yoke" your body, mind, and emotions as we continue to deal with the virus.

I am available for PRIVATE session(s) as well and detemine cost based on need. 

The weather to me feels weird. We are still navigating throuh Covid 19. My hometown of Mpls is in the midst of the trial for George Floyd. Sometimes nothing feels "normal" whatever that is. I am in fight or flight much of the time but I know it and that really helps. My practice grounds me and it  helps me be less reactive and joyful.  May you feel grounded, joyful, and HOPEFUL that the new normal unites us all on a deeper level.

P.S.   IF YOU WANT TO LET YOUR YOGA DANCE CHECK OUT JURIANHUGHES.COM, my Kripalu collegue and friend that is rocking it online!!

JAI BHAGWAN FRIENDS, lots of Love, AMBIKA- ren

Tuesday Yoga Classes at The Clearing began again on 3/16!  Note: On April 1 there will be Thursday classes (same times and levels both days.) Classes are not just for Boomers but the schedule below is retirement friendly!  It may work for some lunch hour people:

11:00 - 12:15 Beginning/Moderate Level

12:30 - 1:45   Moderate/*Advanced Level

* Advanced does not mean difficult poses. Students know pranayamas, locks, some yogic philosophy, etc. in addition to asana.

I will reccomend which class is a fit for you, contact me through this site or call/text me. You must have a reserved spot. I can safely serve 6 people and masks should continue to be worn.  Bring your own props. 

COST ;  $10 DONATION per class.  But I am not keeping track of what you contribute. 

The Lotus flower is among other things a symbol of self-regeneration and rebirth. It's also a beautiful flower that reaches up from the muck.  I hope to be able to reach people who need Yoga right now, people who may be stuck in the mud, people who want to rise up.  Ambi Yoga is a work in process so Please join me in expanding it. I am wide open to feedback.        Shante Om, Ambika

I am happy to announce that I will open the door to The Clearing Studio for live Yoga Classes on March 16. I have invited returning students to participate on:

Tuesdays: 11:00 - 12:15  Beginning/Moderate Level

                 12:30 - 1:15   Moderate/Advanced Level

We will follow protocals for safety; masks, social distancing, bring your own props. Good news is Boomers/Front Liners will be vaccinated including me! I can serve 5 students in each class and will need to know weekly if you will be coming. I will not be advertising to the general public but True North patients will be welcomed. I hope to add a couple more classes next month on Thursdays.  Contact me with ANY questions.  

Cost will be $10 donation.  

Almost a year ago I walked out of a class with Matt Sanford at Mpls Yoga Center Retreat and hugged an owner good-bye as they were shutting their studio down. I knew I'd be doing likewise.  I drove home in a daze leaving my adult daughter to navigate alone on crutches and a knee down scooter (she was recovering from surgery on her right foot.)  Situational Stress plus some health issues caused me to wonder if I'd have a melt down. So yes, in the months that folIowed I certainly did, but I'm here to tell you that through it all I did my practice and other simple interventions daily. I didn't feel any better at the time but my Higher Self witnessed the perfect storm of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. And when I started to recover positive change occured quickly. I am living proof that Yoga offers healing power as long as you; 

Breathe, Relax, Feel, Watch, Allow.  BRFWA.  If you want more coaching on this, Sangha, depth classes LMK!  It is my honor and calling to be a guide on your journey of being fully ALIVE.   

Take Care Friends,  Ambi
