Chicago Spring Resolutions: Gettin' This to Fitness!
posted April 6, 2017 2:52 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sun May 28 at 6:00 PM, Chicago Bodywork
2618 W Division St, Chicago, IL, USA (Map & Directions)
As has been mentioned, I've been working on losing weight. I'm now ready for phase 2, aye kay aye the next 50 pounds, along with improving my general fitness level. So how about yoga? (no preexisting laxness required)

THIS IS THE REAL THING, PEOPLE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL (if you'd like to go)

Lauren can start the first class the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, May 28th. If we have a good enough group to start then, she's up for it, but if people will be out of town for the holiday we can start Sunday June 4th.

And lastly, if you have any questions you can email her directly at unearthedrootsyoga dot gmail at com.

I just spoke to Lauren again and she said that the studio is in Chicago Bodywork on Division, beginning in mid May (date is approximate). They have some scheduled classes taking up Sunday mornings and midday, so our class availability will be evenings or nights to begin with, whatever works best for everyone. Later in June the rest of the day will open up if we want to move it. Cost will be $15 per class to start, and she is working on getting a system of prepaid discount classes together. Please chime in with what time of day will work best for you, then we'll figure out the date later.

Scheduling isn't nailed down yet, but it's looking like May or late April, weekly on Mondays or Fridays, and Sundays later on.

Because of other medical things, I get massages at the chain Massage Envy. I was talking to my masseuse-er-ette, and she mentioned one of the other employees was a new yoga licensee, and I talked to her, and long story short she's interested in teaching solo or small groups as practice.

I am way below amateur league here, so I can be your muse w/r/t what not to do. No matter how klutzy you feel you may be, I will outmatch you! It is totally okay for you to laugh at my ineptness and falling dog pose.

I go to their location on Damen by North, and I assume the classes would be in the general Bucktown area. I intend to try and go at least weekly, but I haven't talked with her to get details yet. She told me that price would be flexible as she is a new teacher, which just means more access for us!

I'm getting in touch with her after posting this, and will post more information once I get it.

My schedule has been all over the place lately, but if this happens on a weekend, I am 100% interested.

As a side note - fatness is not the opposite of being fit.

i've been meaning to get back into yoga and something like this might be just the ticket, depending on when it happened.

I've been talking to Lauren (I also linked her here so she can follow along, hi Lauren!) and it looks like she'll be able to work weekly classes into her schedule in the beginning of May or possibly late April, Monday or Friday, and later on would be able to do Sundays. She can get a studio/workspace to use, and the more people we have the less it will end up costing per person.

Potential location on Division between California and Western, neat neighborhood. She will be visiting later this week and I will update the post then.

Awesome, that's right by me (I'm around the corner from Rainbo at Damen and Division). Most days/times would be alright for me!
