Haaaaaaaaaaaapy Thanksgiving, Y'all!

Happy Thanksgiving from yoga Better HQ here in in Houston.

Amid the spiking case numbers, the seeming wasted sacrifices most of us made, and the tide of political vitriol, 2020 is easy to hate.

Ah, but there’s the catch:

Without 2020, we would not have now.

It is now that we have been able to occasionally take a deep inhale.
It is now that those brief but potent brushes with another’s love lifted us up.
It is now that that all vision for tomorrow can exist.
It is now that we can experience the humbling power of gratitude.

I am grateful for now. For you. For us. For today. For all of my yesterdays and every one of my limited tomorrows.

In gratitude I can acknowledge lineage and fortune. My luck may run out, but the luck given so far can currently be savored, right now. Right now amidst the chaos, silliness, deadliness, and sorrow.

You have heard me rant against positive thinking as delusion, yet I am optimistic. Positive thinking tries to convince the world that all the bad was good, this pain is a blessing, and that all the crap in the future is fantastic.

I can say that this sucks and still be grateful.
I can look around and sometimes hate what I see and be connected to a larger context;
A context that allows me to function and experience a happy me.  

If that past teaches anything, its that there were much worse times. More pertinent, every character in every history lesson would give anything to be in our shoes right now, to have our problems, and to have access to 2020’s potential.

I am an optimist, even when I’m depressed. That pilot light of hope for the future, burning just below my heart, waiting for one of those good, deep inhales to catalyze the ignition of my next passion.

We are here for you. Thank you all for you support and for letting us support you.

Together, we’ll help each other to limp to a better future, and unlike almost every generation before us, have the luxury of enjoying it.

All of the Love,
A+A

COVID-19 UPDATE - October, 2020
We're Open Now, Basically!

6 months to the day that we closed in March, we began in-person classes again at the Studio. Who’s Excited?

There is no way to know how the decisions we make this month will impact the future, but, as we always have, we choose the best we can now

That said, there are some small decisions we can make that have some impact on probabilities. 

1. We will limit classes to 15 people.
2. Masks will be required for all students at all times.
3. Every In-Person class will have a Zoom option for those not comfortable with being around yucky other people. 

For a deeper cut of our thinking on the “Why Masks?” conversation, Here’s a Blog post.

If you didn’t know, we love you all and love any opportunity to support you and your health. From Zoom, to our subscription site, to the future of Yoga classes, we’re here for you.

All the best,
The Yoga Better Crew

What are people saying about Yoga Better?

"I am 71 with back issues resulting from an accident approximately 3 years ago. I can say (with absolute certainty) that the friendly and knowledgeable staff at Yoga Better has greatly improved the quality of my life. I go without fail at least 3 days a week. This dedication to improving my health and a determination to living longer better has resulted with me becoming more flexible, with an improvement in my balance and with an increase in my core strength and body awareness. Thanks Yoga Better, you are a fantastic professional group of yoga specialist and caring individuals!"

"I love these classes! The first time I took a class with Andrew, in 2012 (before they moved to their current location), I thought it was way too intense. But something had me go back to the second class, and since then I just couldn't get enough of how my body felt after every. single. class. A lot stronger, increased range of motion, new muscles I didn't even know I had. I also was able to start running again after a long pause because of ankle/hip weakness, and lower back pain/weakness totally disappeared."
