New class, Saturday, January 29th, 12 noon

Because of the increased attendance for our Saturday classes, we are adding an extra class starting this week. On Saturday, January 29th, Jill will be teaching the Beginner's Vinyasa class at 10 am, and then, at 12 noon, she will offer a regular Vinyasa class. We are hoping that this will help spread out the students, and make for a more comfortable class. To view the schedule, click here.

A Word of Thanks

For all of the teachers, students, family and friends who joined together to make the opening of the new Breathing Room Studio a success - we offer a deep, heartfelt THANKS. The new practice space really does offer a calm and peaceful place to practice yoga.

In sharing our thanks we could not proceed without commenting on the love and generosity that went into creating the space. Mariam Enan, our most recent Friend of the Breathing Room, single handedly designed, commissioned, financed, and decorated the new space. When asked what sparked such an act of kindness, her answer was, "It's something that we needed in Cairo. I'm happy that I was able to be a part of it." Since its inception, The Breathing Room has been graced with people coming together, sharing their talents, their resources and their efforts. It’s wonderful to see this continue in such a profound gesture.

Now that we are in a “space all our own” we will be able to offer more classes – so don’t be shy, let us know what you would like. The best way to ask questions or share your ideas is through our FaceBook group. Soon we will move to a FB page which will offer even better communication options.

It’s really exciting to see everything come together. I hope that you all enjoy what the new space has to offer. May your days be filled with light and may your yoga practice bring you joy.
