Dear Friends, Students and Colleagues,

After 20 years Max and I have decided to downsize. We will be putting our home, land and studio on the market in the near future. I will continue to teach here until the property sells.

Hello all,

 Our February project was a big success.  We were able to collect tote bags and items for 60 bags to be delivered to the UMOM Watkin Center for homeless women.

 Patchwork will be collecting the following new items to be donated to Project Linus during the month of March.

The following are items currently needed: 
Completed blankets (following size and descriptions on their website),
Fleece fabric - this can be purchased at any fabric department.
Please deliver your fabric by March 28th.  If you’d like me to purchase for you just let me know.

 Best wishes to all,


 Kathy Shimpock

 In memory, we share a recent message of Guruji's: 

Without consideration of caste, class, creed, religion or region, ... it is said that the only royal path is yoga. This alone is the path that purifies the seeker of truth and no other.

With my deep love and affection toward you all, my heart is throbbing with a sense of gratitude; words fail me and I find it extremely difficult to send a message to you all, my yogic children to whom I am bound.

A message conveys that I am parting with you, but actually I am also close and attached .... Even those who learned and later parted from me are close to my heart because they carry the same message of yoga - the unity in diversity. Please know that we are all brought together by the invisible hands of God to jointly work towards integrating yoga further and further. This yoga - art, science and the self-culture of man braided together - has bound us forever and this affectionate bond and feeling that belongs to the heart, not the head, is not capable of being conveyed. These are feelings which have made us all live in contentment and emanate the rays of love and delight.

Archana Yoga offers small classes with an emphasis on individual attention in a relaxed setting. The studio is a fully equipped Iyengar studio with mats, blankets, ropes and wooden props. Iyengar yoga emphasizes alignment in precision while increasing strength and relaxation.
