East Bank Yoga operates out of Hills Stainless Steel, 4100 N. Northview Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD
Nourish your mind, body and spirit while connecting with your strength and flexibility through mindful practice.
Finding your balance
This is not going to be a cliché editorial on pursuing balance in your life. Upon writing that I do note that regular practice of yoga is going to increase our ability to handle the more difficult situations we may encounter.
I would like to review balance asanas/poses. It’s my experience that most people enjoy balance poses. We can all relate to the times we seemingly float up and hold our balance on one leg, the wobbly then stable times, and then the just plain it’s not going to happen time. Maybe just one foot is going to protest and balance and the other foot is fine. Let go of judgment in yoga, let go of striving. Find beauty where you are at, in the moment, realizing if we were all expert yogi’s we would not have the opportunity to explore the mind body journey. We need the opportunity once in a while to be gentle with ourselves or laugh at ourselves. If you find your foot wobbling while in a balance pose think of the strength and flexibility you are developing in your foot. If you look to balance for what it really means, nothing is happening. Join me for Beginner's Yoga on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 or check the website for Saturday, 9:00 am classes.

I am super happy with the new location for East Bank Yoga operating out of Hills Stainless Steel, 4100 N. Northview Ave, Sioux Falls, SD. It’s just a jaunt away from Russell and Kiwanis. There is a large window facing a field. It is warm, clean, and inviting. There are 3 beautiful, live trees in the yoga room. There is plenty of space with a yoga friendly floor. East Bank Yoga operates out of Hills on select Tuesdays so register for class at firstname.lastname@example.org or 605.759.7459. Class will take place on Tuesdays, 11/8 and 11/22, 6:00-7:00 pm. Yoga is a practice of peace. Breathing mindfully is a path to grounding. Inhale slowly “I am whole.” Exhale slowly peace. Namaste, Jill Moncur
Satya means connecting with truth. Practicing yoga is one way to connect with our inner light. Breathing deeply, fuels the flames of well-being. Each day is a fresh opportunity to connect with the beauty of nature. I had 2 baby hummingbirds visit my flowers yesterday. Embrace a path that nurtures your soul. East Bank Yoga calendar is updated on a monthly basis. Namaste, Jill Moncur
