My Yoga Peeps,
We are ready to begin our second six-week yoga class. March 1st we begin in Del Ray and on March 3rd in Arlington. Class begins at 6 p.m.
Remember that you may pay for six weeks and never loose a class. If you cannot attend a class, you will not loose money or a session. Always make up a class by simply “showing up.” Our classes are continuous, so come join when you can, and be sure to sign in for each class.
Most of you know we have a blog which began when we had our store in Del Ray. We post daily on this blog. We provide yoga info updates, gardening tips, and postings for our eBay and etsy e-commerce activity. Visit our blog at our new web address: Contessas.net Please check it out!
Using our blog is the best way for us to keep you updated on any schedule changes and to help you keep abreast of new things we will be doing in our classes. For example; this week we gave you an assignment to bring a new “yoga move” with you to our next class. Looking forward to your suggestions.
During the spring/summer we may begin a new class for students who must sit in a chair to do yoga. Those persons generally have health, balance or breathing difficulties, but want to keep their “heart” pumping. As folks ask for this kind of class we will see if we can gather about six students to begin this “special” class. We will keep you posted. If you have referrals for this class please let us know.
It has been joyful and fulfilling to work with all of you over the last six weeks. We had a few bumps in the road due to weather, but we believe we had a great time together. The best part is we are all working toward good health and a longer more fulfilling and peaceful life. Our bodies, our minds and our souls are growing.

Tomorrow evening we finish up our six-week class. At this moment, we are scheduled for seven (7) in attendance. It will be a great class as we practice some “deep breathing” and add a few new positions.
Please remember to hydrate. If sitting on a hard surface is problematic, bring a blanket that you can fold to sit on. We will have fifteen minutes of meditation at the end of our class.
A couple of you have paid by-the-class because you were hesitant to pay for six classes in advance, in case you could not attend a class. The fact is, if you pay for six and cannot make a class, you don’t loose anything. I keep track through your attendance sheet. This is why it’s important to sign in when you arrive for each session. Our classes are ongoing every Tuesday. If you wish to save a little money, be comfortable knowing that you can make up anytime. And if you wish, you can make up a class by coming to Del Ray UMC any Tuesday at 6 pm. Any questions about this, just let me know.
See you all tomorrow evening.

We had a wonderful yoga class this evening. Everyone really stretched it out and we all felt so invigorated and loosened up when we left.
Earlier today our contessas.net site was down, but it is now repaired and this missive is our way of letting you know we are back. We do love technology and Apple, but at times it can be a bit frustrating. Moving along!!
18 Thursday Feb 2016
From our vantage , it would appear that our contessas.net site via Apple/iPhone and the interface with our web address is temporarily down or interrupted
Please be patient as we go to Apple for repair.
We will post later today for testing purposes
YES YOGA WILL BE TONIGHT AT ARLINGTON FOREST UMC AT 6 PM

Good Morning Yoga Peeps,
Our class will meet as scheduled at DelRay UMC, in Lundsfird Hall at 6 pm this evening. An email went out this morning to you, if you are currently on our student roster.
If you wish to join us and have not attended before, please come fifteen minutes early to complete the necessary paperwork. We welcome all.
We are all in a learning phase. This is a fun and very low-key class. You will feel great when you leave because you will know you are taking charge of your own good health. We believe it’s a total confidence builder. We think you will as well.

Chandelier, Gilt, French four arm with four candlelight bulbs. Twenty-eight hanging crystals total. Large center drop Crystal is two inches round and was $40 on its own. Each arm has five/two inch Crystal drops. The top and bottom four crystals are three inches each. The width of the chandelier is fifteen inches. The top to bottom measurement is twenty-three inches. The gilt gold patina is superb adding to the overall provenance of this piece.
It’s petite and very pretty. Strong French design. We have restored it with tiny copper wiring and a ceiling cap. It’s ready to install.
A lovely chandelier.
