4th of July

image4The Aurora Yoga Center walked in the 4th of July parade downtown Aurora and it was a good time!   We handed out class schedule postcards with glow-sticks attached.  We wore AYC logo t-shirts and carried a big American flag.  We danced & smiled & waved!11009155_10206852816179995_7680646399371505502_n 11049546_10206855457446025_7552100048610125441_n 11665612_10206865222450144_7567476463294859895_nFullSizeRender-5 IMG_1406 IMG_1417 IMG_1426 IMG_1427 IMG_1428 IMG_1432 IMG_5104 IMG_5105 IMG_5108 IMG_5110 IMG_5113 IMG_5114 IMG_5115 IMG_5117 IMG_5118 IMG_7237 IMG_7244 IMG_7245 image1 image2

Looking For Spring

It’s been a long, cold, snowy winter here in Aurora, IL.  Image(ice formation on the side of the studio)

I think we are all about to go a little crazy living in this arctic climate…. but, we have hope.   Hope that those bulbs under the layers of snow, ice, and soil will bloom soon.

This week, let’s just enjoy some photos of the beautiful gardens at the AYC and think of warmer weather.  Thanks to the hard work of Marianne Gerry, the center has spectacular front and side gardens.

Marianne is a yoga student at the center who volunteers her time and shares perennials form her home garden with the Aurora Yoga Center.

It’s amazing what she has created.  Everyone enjoys the colors and textures that bloom all Spring, Summer, & Fall.

The garden is starting to come to life despite the frigid temperatures.   We will soon see the crocuses poking through the stark, white snow.

This Summer, Lisa and the kids plan to add a new garden to the backyard of the studio.  This will be an organic veggie garden.   Can’t wait to dig in the dirt!  

Even though it is cold, we hope to see you at the Aurora Yoga Center soon!
Peace & Love, Lisa & Jeff
