Hey Wimberley Yogis, isn’t this just the Summer of Bliss? Great weather, plentiful rain, farmers all happy and prosperous at the local market, and this beautiful green, green world. I’ve heard that the Inuit language has 25 words for snow. I feel that way about green during summers like this – we don’t have nearly enough words to describe it.
Well, yoga in Wimberley has boomed since I launched this website a year ago. We’ve jumped from fewer than 20 classes a week in Wimberley and Driftwood to 30+ and people are talking about yoga all the time. Twice as many teachers are teaching regular classes; there have been workshops and weekend retreats and teacher trainings and loads of free classes for worthy causes. We’ve had new teachers graduate from local training programs, and the energy of yoga is growing like those enormous zucchinis in the garden. This is a busy month – with Kids Yoga and an Ayurveda workshop @ Heart of Texas – and plenty of yoga going on, and coming up.
Here’s a sampling….
July 7 – July 28, Ann Zbylot is teaching The Essence of Yoga at Heart of Texas on Wednesdays 4:30 – 5:45. This delicious sounding 4 week series includes a physical yoga practice, meditation, and the study of Bhakti Yoga, the yoga of devotion. It’s $60 for the program. Contact Ann.
Beginning on Saturdays July 31, 1:30 – 4:00, Becky Jordan begins teaching an ongoing series at Heart of Texas that incorporates physical yoga practice with a teaching about the 8 limbs of Yoga: the ethical, moral, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual practices that lead a yogi to “Samadhi” – enlightenment. $25 a session.
On August 21-22 Camp Utopia’s C.U. in August Retreat presents guest teacher deAnna Anderson for a Jivamukti / Manipura Weekend! deAnna is a fabulous Dallas teacher; she’s about to launch the Dallas chapter of a national teacher training program for Pure Yoga / Equinox. deAnna will teach a powerful Jivamukti Yoga class on Saturday morning and an Arm Balancing class on Sunday morning. The 3rd chakra theme means working on the power center – helping you identify your many skills and the determination you need to meet your goals. You’ll eat yellow food (delicious, homemade, healthy, vegetarian) and learn the breathing techniques, hand gestures (mudras), chants, pressure points, and yoga postures for charging up your power center. Saturday afternoon, Arts & Crafts offers a plethora of fun tools to inspire you, followed by a relaxing social meal, a gentle wind down practice and long yoga nidra (relaxation). Sleep comes easy after that!
Wow, summer is great for yogis in this town!
September brings Free Day of Yoga on Monday, September 6 – so look for schedules to appear next month. And Camp Utopia’s regular series of weekend retreats continues on September 18-19 with an Anusara and Heart Chakra focus! The Anusara practice and Back Bend workshop will be taught by another up-and-comer from the Pure Yoga / Equinox family, Jason Lobo. More on that here later, or here: Camp Utopia.com now!

Wimberley’s Camp Utopia, a yoga workshop, retreat and teacher training company, and a major sponsor of this website, is launching an 8 week wellness workshop series to help you lose some weight, and uncover the food and body issues that have been making weight (or overall health) a challenge. Working from the first chakra in week 1 to the total chakra system in week 8, Camp U will provide you with poses, meditations, food ideas, recipes, and the tools and techniques you need to explore that chakra’s energy and purpose to clear and awaken to a whole new way of thinking about your food, your weight, and your incredibly beautiful body. It’s going to fill up fast – so go to http://www.camputopia.com to sign up!
