As we move deeper into January, here are a few announcements:
Yoga Supplies Order
Some students have asked where to buy good quality yoga props. We recommend “Dusky Leaf,” an eco friendly Canadian based company that supplies excellent quality bolsters, mats and other products. Please visit their website at:http://duskyleaf.ca/to see their catalogue. If you would like to place an order through Spanda Yoga, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your selected product description. We will place a group order by the end of January. You will be able to pick up your items at the studio and pay for them by cash or cheque.
Entrance to Studio
At the studio, we have started using the front north entrance, the one closest to Queens Ave. The side walkway has become too dangerous to walk through with the accumulation of snow and most especially ice. Please look for our sandwich sign on the walkway to find the entrance. You may leave your boots on the mat in the front foyer. The front door will be locked after class starts.
With the arrival of the cold weather, some students have been experiencing problems with the parking meters out front on Waterloo Street. If you put money into a meter and it comes up as “failed” please stay parked where you are. Do not put in any more money. Note the meter number and time you put the money in (take a picture with your phone if possible). If you do get a ticket, you can call the parking department at city hall and they will cancel the ticket. We have called the city a few times to advise them of this problem which is made worse when the weather changes dramatically.
Alternatively, if you don’t mind a short walk, there is free two hour parking on Dufferin Ave., east of Colborne, near Dufferin Hall.
Scent Free Studio
Kindly remember that we endeavour to offer a scent free setting as some of our students have severe environmental sensitivities. Please avoid using perfumed shampoo, conditioner, lotion or other products before coming to class.
We look forward to welcoming you during the Winter Session at Spanda Yoga!
