Heart Stream Yoga has three studios to serve you. Room 206 and 201 at 3550 Airport Way and upstairs from Spaulding Chiropractic at 1221 Noble until August 18. If a class name has Noble in the name, it is at that location. Otherwise it will be in 201 or 206 which are just down the hall from each other at the Airport Way location. With 40+ classes a week, we hope you will find what you are looking for!
Summer is drawing to a close. The cranes are dancing and our world is beginning to change and turn again to yet another season. Our studio, is again ready and preparing for change. Through twists of fate, (some tragic, some not) some doors have drawn to a close. The propane explosion that seriously wounded our instructors Morganne Armstrong and Colin Campbell, has for the time being, stopped them from teaching at Heart Stream Yoga. Their focus now is to become whole and well again and the door is open for healing and strength to return.
The doors to our Noble Street studio will close, yet our doors will open in a new location at the Hub (the old Tommy's Elbow Room studio space). Our last day of classes at Noble Street is August 18. So while all of this may seem like many doors closing, there is a light, the opening of new doors, seeds to be planted and regrowth and renewal for the years to follow... We will continue to serve you and provide quality and diversified yoga classes in our other studios, suite 201 and 206. Our doors at the Hub will open September 1. The location is prime to serve he downtown area as the feedback was that our location at the Spaulding Chiropractic Clinic was too "far out" of town for that crowd. Classes will begin earlier (5:15pm) to facilitate the needs of our downtown clientele. The space is also conducive to HOT classes and the proximity to the Taphouse and Venue Fairbanks make this a prime spot for after class fun! We will begin painting August 13 and would love to have your help with our community project. Those interested please call Donna 907-978-0915. Moving day will be after August 20.

“To have negative traits is not to be flawed, but to be complete” Deepak Chopra
This quote reminds us that expressing our authenticity means to embrace all of our ambiguity as human beings. How many times have we pledged to be kind, stay calm, or get up early and do our practice and then lashed out, stressed out or slept in the very next day? Being authentic, not perfect, is a quality of self acceptance, of being comfortable in our own skin and often, needing to find the humor when we fall short of self imposed rules and regulations. Authentic joy fills the space of our inner witness when we are neither attached to our perceived good qualities or repelled by the “bad” ones. This is often followed by a big belly laugh in recognition of our wholeness.
In Light On Life, BKS Iyengar’s last book he says, “Humor helps people move away from fragmentation to wholeness, too. It lightens the mind and makes it easier to guide and focus.” We can then commit once again to living from the calling of our hearts and the guidance of our conscience.
