New teacher - meet Sarah! With new classes, plus some schedule changes :)

Sarah

Things have been chuffing along here at TFD, as we turn the heating on for a little longer and snuggle under our blankets a little more for savasana, heading into winter. The shortest day of the year has visited us yesterday, and now we can look forward to a little bit more daylight as each day lengthens once more.

Goth yoga for June - Gary Numan special!

It's getting close to a new month, and that means closer to our next Goth Yoga class! We're featuring Gary Numan for the June class, and there is more to him than just Cars - not that you ever hear anything else in a club, right? One of the best things about Goth Yoga is we get to play a bunch of tracks by artists that just never get heard in clubs because they aren't dance floor friendly - yoga friendly is an entirely different thing! Also, did you know Gary Numan also used to be a stunt pilot? Obviously someone who's very used to being upside down =)

And now for something completely different.

(well, slightly different... I can slip yoga in anywhere!)

So you might have heard,  there's an election happening on July 2.

Your own Personal Guru?

It's a new month! And that means it's GOTH YOGA this Friday!

This month's theme is one of the mainstay bands of any Goth club, the ever-dancefloor-filling DEPECHE MODE. Our flyer this month features a still from a DM concert which itself features appropriately contortionist images, hah! Come down at 6pm Friday 6th May for a 75 minute session filled with your favourite DM tracks (amongst others of course) and lots of stretchy goodness! Present flyer either printed or on your phone, for discount entry!

New trial membership offering - 1 month for $50!

Tofu for Dolphins Poster

We've had some feedback from students during our first fledgling months, and based on this feedback we are changing our trial membership offering! A number of students have told us they haven't felt the 10 days was enough time to experience a range of classes and to begin to develop a consistent yoga practise or "get back in the habit". Thus we are changing from $20 for a 10 day trial ($2 per day), to $50 for a 1 month trial (only $1.60 per day, and so many more of them!)

Goth yogis of the world, unite!

Got a bit of a surprise this evening when we discovered one of our literally just-posted posters in the window for next month's Goth Yoga class had gone viral. Expecting some extra visits as a result, so, bit of a recap for those just tuning in: Goth Yoga is a monthly class held every first Friday of the month, from 6pm to 7.15pm, in North Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

It's hip to be Square; + holiday schedule!

Hey TFD folks! Letting you know a couple things:

Firstly, as of today we are now running our studio card payments through Square, which just launched their physical payment system in Australia 2 weeks ago (that's the Square logo up there, if you haven't seen it before)! This system can currently only process credit and debit cards though so please make sure you bring cash to classes if you don't have either of these card types (or just book online!)

Irish Yoga tonight for St Patrick's Day! Gold coin entry if you come in green =)

Happy St Patrick's Day! At TFD we probably won't be practising QUITE like the attached image, but we would like to wish the very best of national celebrations to the character from which our studio name originated, Mr Bernard L Black. To add a bit of fun, if you come to any class today dressed in green, you'll only have to pay a GOLD COIN to attend! Our schedule for this evening is 4.30pm Gentle Yoga, 6pm Beginner's Course, and 7.15pm Yin Journey. (which will be Irish-themed!) To be sure, to be sure!

Linguistics and yoga: changing our lexicon to increase happiness

mudita - to experience joy in the good fortune of others

I caught up with a dear friend a little while ago, someone I'd known for many years, who had often been single, and constantly seemed to have poor luck with relationships. Finally, it seemed, he'd found someone who really clicked: and I met her for the first time for at dinner. They were adorably lovely-dovey together, and it made me so, so happy to see this friend finally find someone that seemed to be a good fit for them, after so many years of drama and trauma.
