Happy Holidays!

Take a  few moments to breathe and settle when you can. I continue teaching a drop in class Monday at 7pm at Balancing Owl all holiday long. Still time to register your workplace for mobility breaks. Drop me a line at yogawithloretta@hotmail dotcom.

Want a unique gift? Register yourself and a friend or family member for a January Yoga and art workshop. I'll offer this at four different yoga studios for your convenience. Clock the WORKSHOP tab for details.

Potential last season in Central Ohio

After teaching yoga for 14 years and living in Central Ohio for 29 years, this may be my last season as a local. My husband Mark and I plan to move to Asheville, North Carolina in late November. (Edit: We've postponed this move for a number of reasons.)

I'm so very thankful for your support and encouragement. I'll miss so many friends. The good news is you are invited to visit us. If you've visited Asheville you know why we love this place we've visited for the past decade. If you've never been, you're in for a treat filled with gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway hikes, waterfalls, and a cool artsy vibe.

Please contact me at yogawithloretta over at hotmail.com when you plan a  visit.

Thank you again. Loretta

Happy Spring!

What fun Mark and i had teaching YogaMat to placemat at Healthy New Albany. We bring the same duo of workshops to Franklin park Conservatory on Sunday, April 24. 

I offer therapy ball tension erasing workshops on Saturday April 30 at City Salt Spa in Plain City and May 1 at Bexley Yoga.

Thanks to all who have taken my Workplace mobility classes. Could you use a 15 minute stretch break at work? You stay in your work clothes and i come to the area with straps, therapy balls and movements for you to do for 15 minutes of tension erasing. This cuts done on soreness and time off the clock. It also raises moral. 

Weekly classes begin at Dublin Rec Center soon and are offered each Monday at 7:30pm, Wed 10am and Thursday at 7pm.

I'll offer more outdoor yoga this summer at Dublin Scioto park. Three of these classes will feature live guitar music.  

Thanks for your support of yoga, therapy balls, The Duke of fork's culinary classes and my hand made jewelry. Enjoy the sunshine!

Namaste. 

 

 

 

Happy Mild Winter!

So happy that the winter has been mild. I'd prefer to enjoy a stroll than shovel any day.

Big thanks to all who joined me at Erasing Tension workshops at Bexley Yoga and Dublin Rec Center in January. 

February is Yoga Outreach Columbus month! So looking forward to a  big charitable yoga class and gathering on Sunday Feb 21. 

My jewelry site is up and running. Woot. Big thanks to all who are wearing a piece that jewelry right now. Thanks for offering it to a friend. These little beauties really can brighten a  day!  Whether you treasure a stack of bracelets or love an om necklace , I appreciate you and all the meaning you give these beauties!

So eager to offer back to back workshops Yoga Mat To Placemat with my husband, The Duke of Fork. Yoga, therapy balls and delicious food ready to recreate at home. 

Big shout out to the employees who work with therapy balls right at their work stations. I love offering a  "come as you are" fifteen minute movement break. Whether you are in blue jeans and steel toe shoes or a business casual, I know how much these mini breaks can be for our outlook! 

Thanks, finally to the ones who show up week after week for movement classes. You inspire me to show up and recognize your badassery. *wink*

 I am committed to treating you with the kindness and respect you deserve; to help you erase pain; and whenever add some laughter to your day. 

Namaste.  Loretta

Happy Holiday!

Thank you so much for your support this past year. It was a year of growth and change for sure. I'm so thankful to become a Yoga Tune Up® teacher. I've been teaching yoga over 13 years and really feel confident in helping others feel good in body and mind with these expanded skills in anatomy, pain management and physiology.  Also this year, I've expanded mobility in the workplace to a plant setting and launched a yoga inspired jewelry business. Thanks to all who understand and appreciate the intention of each piece. It brings me happiness to see others wear the designs. 

The online store for jewelry and therapy balls will be up soon. In the meantime, if you've seen something you want, drop me a line at yogawithloretta@hotmail.com. I accept paypal and square payment.

More info about Yoga Outreach Columbus is coming soon! I look forward to seeing you on Sunday Feb 21 2016!

Peace in!  Loretta

New website!

I've maintained my old Loretta Yoga website since 2004. It was all hard coded. This means I went into the code just to make updates. Thanks to Dennis Wolfe for hosting my page all this time

I've cut all the extras such as testimonials so that you have just pertinent info at your fingertips. All about where I am offering my workshops with these incredible balls is here. Go ahead make ball jokes! My fellow Yoga Tune Up instructors and I have heard and coined quite a few. Find info about my assisting The Duke of Fork here along with jewelry updates. 

Big thanks to Sam Fahmi of Studio79 photography for capturing many of these new photos that capture my personality. So grateful to Frankie Cropper who created my new logo. And to Mark Zedella for feeding me on days when I get engrossed in my work and don't make time to prepare a  decent meal. And so much more. I thanked many people on another page. Thanks to everyone I omitted who has helped.
