Welcome to The Yoga & Ayurveda Center located at the corner of St. Charles Road and S. Park Avenue one block west of Main Street in Lombard, Illinois.
A New Year Message from all of us at YAC:
"Happy New Year from all of us at The Yoga & Ayurveda Center. Our wishes for 2021 include a return to robust studio classes and workshops and re-connecting with each other in person.
We thank all of you who supported the studio through Zoom, class attendance and donations.
When a community has been scattered about, it takes time to adapt to new norms. From instructors and students views alike - some love Zoom, and others find it impersonal.
But it is necessary change, and we must learn to shift with the movement, or we will be left stuck . . .
Winter is a time of self-reflection, a time to build strength and immunity, for the body is working hard to keep the channels warm. Warm soupy foods with large lunches are welcomed this time of year. Sherries & cordials can be enjoyed to warm the blood. Do not eat carbs after 6pm. Use cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in warm milk drinks at night. Ghee is essential for lubrication and aids with sleep. Walks outside with warm coats are good for the immune system. Become aware of the stages of the moon and use the full moon to make some soma water to drink.
So here is to the year of 2021 - please share our information with friends who might be looking for a studio to come to – all new and old practitioners are welcome.
Support the studio in any way you can with Zoom and In-Studio classes. We are bringing on a few new instructors from the city so look for that information in the next few weeks. If you want a certain time and day for a class, text the studio (630) 330-9461 and leave a detailed message. We are so grateful for your support and if we have not seen or heard from you in a while, give us a shout. We need and completely appreciate your support that allows us to maintain our sacred space.
We are located above Babcock's with masks, hand sanitizers, 6-foot space requirements, and classes limited to 7. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
Best wishes in 2021!"
Julie, Derek, Suzanne, Chris, JoAnn, Alyssa, Meredith, J. Michael
