Hi, Kitty.
Many years ago, I took some classes at BBC through the Community College. After those classes ended and my schedule changed, I tried taking an occasional class at various places around town, but I never found a place or a teacher that spoke to me. I have not done any formal yoga classes in the last decade – just some practice on my own with video guidance. I popped into the center yesterday on a whim. After Judith’s class, I am convinced that I want/need formal classes and that BBC is my home. I’m off next Monday so I will join Judith again and pick up a punch card. Then I’ll try to visit as often as I can. Thanks for reaching out to me. I feel even more welcome now! – Holly



Good Bye to BBC Teacher, Julie Garland!

Big Bend Center says good bye to one of our beloved teachers, Julie Garland. She has taught a Tuesday yoga class and a Wednesday basic yoga class at BBC for more than 14 years.

Julie’s husband, Dan, accepted a job in the Kansas City area, where they are relocating. This move allows Julie to be closer to her parents and her sister.

She mentioned that she may continue teaching yoga in Kansas City, so if you’re ever out that way, be sure to look her up! We’ll miss you, Julie… thank you for being a special part of our BBC community for so long.

A note from Julie…
To all of of our beautiful yoga students, wonderful teachers and inspiring leaders Lyn & Kitty, you have been a BIG part of my life and I will miss you dearly. Thank you so much for all of your love and support over the years. You have made the Big Bend Center such a sacred & special space. I am very blessed for having known each of you. Take care, much LOVE and Namaste!

Check out Patricia Corrigan’s PBS-sponsored article about restorative yoga, which includes a few quotes from our own Kitty Daly HERE.

 

People tell me the class is a sanctuary for them, a place where they can close their eyes and enter their own world… I prepare the room, open the door and make sure people have what they need. Our mantra every Friday night is ‘no rushing.’” — Kitty Daly

Big Bend Yoga CenterOur first center opened in 1994 in a tiny house in Maplewood to provide a serene and sacred space for students as dedicated to practicing yoga as the four teachers/partners were to teaching. In 1997, the Center moved to a spacious converted garage in Webster with a padded floor, quality props, and a garage door that elevates to let the outside in. Visit Big Bend Yoga today, and find a class that suits your needs or make an appointment with one of our certified massage therapists.

I just wanted to tell you how much I love Mike’s class in the mornings. It is so great to be back at BBC regularly. I am always amazed — yet again — at the quality of the instruction and the feel of the place. I have never been to a yoga class that didn’t do me some good. But what happens at BBC is really special.
Thank you so much to Kitty and Lyn!
— Mary Anne
