New Class Alert! Morning Pranayama (Breathwork)

Updated: Aug 3, 2020

At the beginning of the pandemic, I read this great book by James Nestor called "Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art" and completely geeked out. As a singer and actress, I have always been fascinated with the way that the breath can support our voices, and through my yoga practice, I have also discovered how it can support our bodies and allow us to operate as efficiently as possible.

In this new class, which I will offer every weekday morning at 9 AM CST (7 AM PST/10 AM EST), we will explore the ways that the breath can move through the body to energize us, balance us, and calm us. Each class will feature a mudra or hand gesture to support our breathing exercises. We will incorporate 3-5 different breathing exercises during the 30 minute class. There will be an overarching theme each week which we'll build on each day, but you can always drop in for a single class, as your schedule allows.

This class will be offered though Second Bloom Yoga, a brand new online yoga studio created by my colleague and fellow yoga therapist, Marleen. We have a sliding scale at Second Bloom. Memberships range from $0-200 per month, based on what you can afford during the COVID era. You can read more about our prices and packages by clicking here.

Second Bloom Yoga offers 25 different classes a month ranging from Kids Yoga to Yoga for People with Chronic Pain to Flow Yoga classes to Chair Yoga classes. There is something for everybody, and since everything is online via Zoom, there is something for everybody everyWHERE. Check out our schedule here


Calling all San Antonio Yogis!

My home studio here in San Antonio, Texas, Neva Massage and Yoga Studio is also really thinking outside of the box. They are creating a new yoga subscription which sounds absolutely sublime.

What a lot of us miss the most in regards to our yoga practice is the ambiance of the studio, the soft music, the scent of a candle filling up the room, and the props. Yoga props help make the harder poses not so hard, and make that savasana just a bit more AAAAAH.  To help create your safe and personal yoga studio at home, our subscription will include:

  • Unlimited Virtual Yoga Classes 

  • Link to our Yoga Class Video Log (coming very soon)

  • First Month you will Receive a Yoga Bolster, Foam Block, Yoga Strap, and a Complimentary Candle

  • Option to purchase a Monthly Namasté at Home Box, which will contain 4-5 products to keep bringing Neva Massage and Yoga Studio to you.
