A Special Holiday Class
with Laura Brennan
This coming season of winter is a time of reflection and slowing down, but it does not mean hibernation from your practice. Invite yourself on a gentle journey to your inner power by exploring a class that balances both yang and yin energy. Hatha yoga reflects “Ha” the active energy of the sun, and “Tha”, the energy of the moon. This class will begin with a powerful, yet slow and steady flowing sequence followed by a winter yin practice which is thoughtful and meditative creating peace in mind, body, and spirit. $25
- To register, email Laura.

Solstice Tune-Up with Tom Youngholm
Come experience an introspective journey with visualizations, relaxation techniques and chakra cleansing, to name a few. Winter Solstice is an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves. This is not a yoga asana workshop but an interactive class which will provide an opportunity for you to experience energy in new and exciting ways. $25
- For questions or to register, email Tom.
Seeking Cat Lovers
Given ongoing health issues, Jyoti Hansa would like to be in touch with any cat lover who might be willing to adopt one or two of her four house cats. They are all healthy, neutured, not declawed, litter box trained and delightful personalities.
- Mano, the only male and part flame point Siamese, is a talker and loves to cuddle.
- Ming is all white with a very gentle, loving, quiet personality.
- Mamay and Mokey are twins. Jyoti would like them adopted together as they are litter mates.
Ideally, Jyoti would love her cats to stay with her until she leaves the planet, however, she feels strongly about having something set up in advance for them. Please email or call 802-785-4217 if you are interested in adopting at some point, want to meet the gang, or more.
Gratitude to the AHA Community
What better time to reflect than the during this transition into autumn. The balance of light and dark, cool and warm, inner and outer serving to balance perspective.
As I reflect over the events of this past summer, which began with two broken wrists, I am aware of the trauma and ensuing challenges fading away. What remains is a deep, visceral gratitude for all of the love, help, and good will that surrounded me, for the individuals from whence it came, and the collective community we are a part of.
Jill told me of how I was held in your classes through metta and prayers. In addition to that intentional and energetic offering many of you sent cards, gifts, food, and offered other forms of help. Not only was I deeply touched by this, I was truly sustained by it. Being in the center of a circle of so much love and generosity is the experience of being blessed and healed. It has also been a teaching of how I can better stand around others in their time of need.
My most heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of you. Because of you, I am well.
Love and Gratitude,
— Susan Kellogg
