Happy Birthday to you!

Watching the local church on Moss and Fairfield get torn down this week, I was reminded of the winds of change – how quickly something can be erased that was so meaningful to so many. When I was a kid, the church in my small home town was the place where people gathered to worship, as well as to connect with one another – to share a meal, lend an ear, and offer a helping hand.

I feel blessed that hemma has been able to exist for as long as it has and has been able to offer so much meaning and support for so many. As churches make way for housing projects, I hope that hemma’s home will be around for many more years of service!  Regardless, our sites are set on the future horizon as we welcome new teachers and new and returning acupuncturists, prepare to launch a yoga teacher training program, and update our website. We’re here for you as long as the Universe allows!

So, drop by and celebrate our 12 years of yoga and acupuncture on Sunday the 20th. All our drop-in yoga classes and acupuncture treatments are free that day! In addition, we’ll be celebrating throughout the month of October in a variety of ways, in case you’re not able to make it to our birthday party.

From the depths of my heart, thank you all for 12 years of enthusiastic support. We wouldn’t be here without you!

In Gratitude,

Each year I am sure that it will be my last intensive training. The amount of work and planning that is required to facilitate a teacher training in another country is huge! As well as the long days spent teaching and leading the training’s and all that goes with it. And yet….and yet. Read More »
