Happy Monday!

Do you like a little competition? Are you looking for some motivation to get on your mat more? Want to encourage others with your practice? Sign up to join the May Partner Challenge! It's free and it starts tomorrow! Snag a friend and sign up to work together to get as many classes as you can in the month of May. Sign up by emailing, calling, or just letting the front desk know! Keep track of your classes on your chart in the hallway... 1 sticker per class (you don't have take them together!). The top 3 at the end of the month win a free month of unlimited yoga, free guest passes for a month, and a Manduka yoga mat or mat towel!

A few important things I want to share with you: We will be closed Saturday, May 5th! Most of the front desk team will be at Hanan's Poolside Yoga class, benefiting StreetlightUSA, at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort (on 7th St, close to Thunderbird Ave). Please consider joining us! Here's the link to take you straight to Streetlight's event for more info and to register. We're honored to be hosting Christy Burnette for her second 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in our space! She first led a group when our space was Y.O.G.A. for the Soul and I'm so excited for her to be starting a new training with Kula yoga. She's a wealth of knowledge! Christy has been teaching yoga for about as long as I've been alive and she's been teaching Teacher Trainings for years. Here's her Yoga Alliance page. This training is perfect for you if you've been practicing yoga for awhile and want to go deeper in your practice and learn more about the anatomy and history behind the poses. This is also a good fit for someone that might be interested in teaching yoga in some format in the future. Get to know her better by attending her Advancing Your Practice workshop, focusing on the Hamstrings and working towards the Splits. We also invite you to our Meet and Greet information session with Christy Saturday, May 19th at 8:30. Stay for the 9:30 class afterward, on us! Kula Monthly Members! A few fun, new facts for you... with your membership, you automatically receive 20% off all massage services, retail products, AND workshops/events! Also, we want to thank you for sharing our studio with friends and family. From now on, if you invite someone brand new to the studio and they sign up for our Newbie Special (2 weeks for $20 of unlimited yoga!) we'll give you a MONTH FREE. Just be sure your Newbie lets us know at the desk that you referred them! Lisa Ballard with Coming to Mindfulness is starting her third session here at Kula yoga this week! Her 8-week long Mindfulness Meditation course is AMAZING. Head to her website for more information and to reach out to Lisa. Thank you so much for the light and love you bring into the studio everyday.

See you soon, Chantal
